Razer Leviathan Sound Bar Review At about 20 inches long, the Leviathan is
small for a TV soundbar, but it fit nicely on a desk in front of my 24-inch computer
monitor. The black perforated grill on the front prominently
features Razer’s logo in the middle and is transparent enough to show off the two
2.5-inch drivers and two 0.74-inch tweeters inside that produce the sound. Despite its small stature, the Leviathan produces
big sound. If you’re a fan of surround sound and low-end
effects, you’ll find plenty to like. With 30 watts of power, Razer’s soundbar
produces enough volume to fill a large room, but I found it sounded best when I was close
up — like sitting in front of my computer playing games. In the living room, the bass tended to dominate
the mix, and there’s no way to adjust the level. While I was playing Call of Duty 4: Modern
Warfare on a Mac, the Leviathan helped to make the experience more immersive when compared
with standard computer speakers. The virtual surround sound made helicopters
feel as if they were swirling around my head, and the booming subwoofer added a tactile
element to the experience. The subwoofer also added resonance to dialogue.
Cate Blanchett’s exposition at the beginning of The Fellowship of the Ring came across
with the intended depth and gravitas. But there is such a thing as too much bass.
During a chase scene in the Dark Knight, the low-end effects overmatched the dialogue. In the club scene during John Wick, the throbbing
bass overwhelmed the other effects in the scene. When listening to music, I liked the wide
field of sound that the Leviathan produced, especially compared with the SoundSticks I
use at my desk. Razer’s onto something with a soundbar aimed
at gamers — the virtual surround sound and booming bass improved the gaming experience. In a living room or other situation where
you’ll be far from the TV, the Leviathan lacks the adjustments that you need to get
the best sound and the remote to control the volume. Kindly see the description for this Amazon
