¿Cómo limpio mis auriculares Razer?
No podemos decir con certeza qué tipo de suciedad y residuos pueden encontrarse en el producto o cómo pueden reaccionar ciertos productos de limpieza, pero hemos tenido buenos resultados usando las toallitas comunes para limpieza del monito. Para limpiar el cuerpo de los auriculares Razer, use un paño de limpieza y frote con suavidad. No frote la superficie de los auriculares Razer.

Al limpiar las almohadillas de los auriculares, tenga especial cuidado para que no entre líquido en el interio del auricular o en el micrófono, ya que esto puede dañar los auriculares.

Mis auriculares Razer están fuera de garantía. ¿Hay alguna manera de repararlo?
Los productos Razer están diseñados para funcionar durante mucho más tiempo que la fecha de caducidad de la garantía.

Razer does make available some basic external spare parts at , but we are unable to supply any internal parts o repair guides.
¿Hay piezas de repuesto disponibles?
No tenemos disponibles piezas internas como sensoes de ratón. However we do have certain spare parts available fo purchase from the Razerstoe: here.

Take a look at the schematics below showing how the two Razer Chimaera headsets connect. Note: Both versions of the Razer Chimaera connect to either the oiginal Xbox 360 o Xbox 360 Slim as well as the PC.

Razer Chimaera 5.1:
1. Connecting the Razer Chimaera 5.1 to the oiginal Xbox 360 o the Xbox 360 Slim using an optical cable:

If you have a new Xbox 360 Slim and you want to use it with the Razer Chimaera 5.1 you don't need any additional cables o other accessoies to connect the headset to your console. This will be true even if you connect your Xbox 360 Slim to your TV through HDMI. The new Xbox 360 Slim has the necessary "Toslink Optical Output" built right into its back panel.



2. Connecting the Razer Chimaera 5.1 to the oiginal Xbox 360 o the Xbox 360 Slim using an RCA to RCA cable:


3. Connecting the Razer Chimaera 5.1 to the PC using a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable and an RCA to 3.5mm cable*:
*RCA to 3.5mm cable is an additional accessoy sold separately.


Are the Razer Chimaera headsets noise canceling?
No, but you can increase o decrease the volume on the headset to adjust to your surroundings.
Are the Razer Chimaera headsets rechargeable?
Yes, the Razer Chimaera headsets come with two AAA rechargeable batteries out of the box. Simply place the headset on the base station to recharge the batteries.
Can I hook up my Razer Chimaera 5.1 to my PC with the Optical cable?

Yes, you can connect an MP3 player in the same way you can connect a PC to your Razer Chimaera.
Can I use my Razer Chimaera 5.1 headset with the Razer Chimaera Standard base station and vice versa?
The Razer Chimaera 5.1 only woks with a coresponding 5.1 base station. The same applies fo the Razer Chimaera Standard headset.
Can I use rechargeable AAA batteries other than the ones supplied with the headset?
While we recommend using the supplied batteries, you may of course use other rechargeable AAA batteries with a current rating of at least 900 mAh to power the Razer Chimaera. You can also use lower current batteries such as 800 mAh but this may reduce the battery life to below 8 hours of continous use. Please do not use non-rechargeable alkaline AAA batteries.
How do I sync my Razer Chimaera headset with its base station?

To pair the two, simply hold the ‘Sync' buttons on both the base station and headset simultaneously fo a few seconds. You should hear a beeping sound to confirm the units have paired.
You can pair up to four headsets to a single base station.


Why do the headsets have to be ‘synced' with the base station, and what does ‘syncing' mean?
Each receiver has a unique internal signature that identifies to a specific headset. No two receivers have the same signature, so if you had two o moe headsets in the same room, they can operate independently of one another with no interference.

The process of ‘syncing' the headset to the base station establishes a fixed link between them, so the receiver's signature will be locked to that particular base station and will ignoe signals from any other base station that's within range. This prevents the headset from being confused if it senses a wireless signal from a different transmitter.

If I don't have an optical output, can I still use the Razer Chimaera 5.1?
Yes, connect the RCA to RCA cable that comes with the Razer Chimaera 5.1, o purchase a 3.5mm to RCA cable to connect to a multitude of audio sources including the PC.
How do I change the input source of the Razer Chimaera 5.1?
If you have both optical cable and the RCA to RCA cable connected to the base station, press the ‘Source' button on the base station to switch between the two input signals.
Why are there two Optical Connectos on the Razer Chimaera 5.1 base station?
One optical connecto is input, to receive game audio from your Xbox 360 console o home theater system. The other connecto is fo output, in the event you want to place your Razer Chimaera 5.1 base station between your console and home theatre system.

The audio that comes in the Optical-In jack is sent out the Optical-Out jack as an audio pass-through when the Razer Chimaera 5.1 is turned on.

Can I use the Razer Chimaera headsets with my PC?
Both Razer Chimaera headsets are fully compatible with the PC. You'll need an extra RCA to 3.5mm cable (sold separately) to connect the Chimaera 5.1 to the PC. To connect the Razer Chimaera Standard you'll need two extra 3.5mm to 3.5mm cables (also sold separately).
Do the Razer Chimaera headsets wok on my PS3?
The Razer Chimaera headsets are built primarily fo the Xbox® 360. While the audio signal of the PS3 can be picked up by the Razer Chimaera, voice communication only woks on the Xbox 360 o on the PC.

Razer Chimaera 5.1:

- 2.5mm to 2.5mm cable

Why am I not hearing sound after connecting my Razer Chimaera 5.1 with an analog (RCA) cable?
If you connect your Razer Chimaera 5.1 to a digital source you will get audio immediately. If you connect with an RCA cable, you have to press the 'Source' button on the base station once to switch the Razer Chimaera from digital to analog input.
Does the Razer Chimaera have an automatic sleep mode to help extend battery life?
Sí. When the headset does not detect an audio signal fo 10 minutes the headset will automatically turn off to save battery power.
How does voice transmission over Xbox LIVE wok?

To chat with others over Xbox LIVE, please connect the 2.5mm to 2.5mm cable that comes with the Razer Chimaera from the left ear cup to an Xbox controller (preferably the Razer Onza) to transmit voice signals.
