PC Review - Terrible Sound Don't waste your time or money

I was a huge fan of Razer and their line of products until I tried them. I've been playing on PC with all my Razer perfs for 6 years now. I have an older Razer KRAKEN 7.1 CHROMA 7.1 channel headset. So I assumed that the sound of the new Kraken headset would AT LEAST be on par with the previous version. Unfortunately I was totally disappointed. I've never heard anything so disappointing. They sound like crap right out of the box. As a huge Razer fan, I've put a lot of effort into making themโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Weight
Cons
  • Available in white only

Roughly equivalent to Razer

Only owned the headset for about 2 days. On the first day, the microphone worked intermittently, turning off every few minutes. The next day the microphone stopped working completely. THX surround sound is well thought of, but doesn't work in practice. Speakers and drivers are not large enough or powerful enough to use THX surround sound. The sound quality is ok if you don't use THX surround sound, but once switched on the quality and intensity drops significantly. Although it works as intended

Pros
  • Easy to use
Cons
  • Something different

Decent headset for the money

The headset is a lot bigger than I expected but it never feels heavy or gives me a headache to wear. Rather, it sits so loosely on my head that I feel like it's about to fly; you have to get used to this feeling. Sound quality is pretty decent, but a far cry from what I get from my Bose or Sony wireless noise-cancelling headphones. It doesn't sound distorted, but it doesn't sound that "full" either. Noise isolation is practically non-existent; they sound like open cup headphones (notโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Delivery was very quick
Cons
  • Zero

High Quality Gaming Headset

This is the first good gaming headset I have bought. The first was a cheap $25 Turtle Beach headset from Gamestop, which was returned the next day. I then used my Apple headphones until I did enough research and found them. I play Call of Duty Black Ops4 and other COD games and it's very important to have a good headset, you can hear footsteps exactly where they're coming from. This is really necessary to play the game to the maximum. My K/D has grown up and overall the whole gaming experienceโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Great Price

I like surround sound

As I usually listen to music on my phone when I'm on the go I have a pair of headphones so this is the first pair of headphones I've ever had. obsessed and I can't compare to other headphones but I like these. I wanted it for my computer because I stay up late for work, need music or movies, and don't want to wake my family. You must use a USB audio controller to get surround sound from THX (where available). Otherwise, you'll only get stereo sound through the 3.5mm jack that's directly builtโ€ฆ

Pros
  • cool product
Cons
  • expensive

UPDATED 4-14: Best headset ever helped me from Razer!

UPDATE 4-14-19: I got my new kit a few days ago and finally hooked it up and installed all the drivers (very carefully) and oh my god this kit has everything you need what i hoped . The first one was defective, but Razer sent me a new one via RMA. Definitely worth the wait. Highly recommended! For a "budget" set, this thing exceeds all expectations. I still stand by everything I said in my original review. The convenience of these things is to die for. I don't want to take them off. Plusโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Great design
Cons
  • Updates available
