Audio

Audio:
"nice product but hard to configure with a combined audio mic jack and in my opinion is kinda uncomfortable for long periods of wear"
_
"This headset has a terrible amount of static and has terrible audio quality i would AND THE MIC IS TOTAL CRAP i would recommend putting in the extra money and getting an astro a50 headset they are reliable have a good mic (one of the best ive seen on a headset) and are extremely strong."
_
"Audio- Terrible."
_
"Not much use for gaming, sadly, again as the mic is too weak to pick up voice properly, so game audio drowns it out the the point at which it may as well not exist."
_
"- It comes with external audio adapter(I probably called it wrong) so while you listening music with your phone or ipod mics jak doesnt stupidly swings around."

Beach

Beach:
"Was looking for some headphones better than the half broken, Turtle beach Z22 i own."
_
"Compared to my turtle beaches I have for Xbox that were slightly more expensive I'd have to say I prefer the mic on these but the turtle beaches can be worn much longer before becoming uncomfortable."
_
"after years of messing with chincy & uncomfortable headsets from turtle beach and others I went with my tried and true mouse and keys provider."
_
"i wanted something that was going to be more durable than the last pair of turtle beaches that i broke, so i looked at some reviews and wanted something that was going to sound just as good as my turtle beaches did but be sturdy enough with my big head heh."
_
"not to mention the sound quality is horrible compared to my old turtle beach."
_
"I upgraded from a pair of Turtle Beach x12's when I gave them to a friend who had crappy no-name headphones, so I needed something relatively cheap but good for the price."
_
"This headset is the best headset i have ever heard i have tried bose, turtle beach and beats and in my opinion all suck i have never had a problem with these, they dont feel cheap like turtle beach and they work with my phone a great plus"
_
"Best headset I have owned, better than my turtle beach"
_
"I would warn the average consumer against this product and say that my favorite headphones so far are the Turtle Beach Z22's, which has much nicer sound quality, and not overpriced for the level of quality i get."
_
"First off I was originally using Turtle Beach x31 Headset, the Mic is decent on that and the Sound is unbeatable."

Cable

Cable:
"My only complaint is that I wish the cord itself could be detached just in case it gets damaged."
_
"In fact, they said they didn't have any left in stock and advised I buy an aftermarket one (even though it's written on the box that they cannot guarantee the headphones will work properly with a third party splitter cable).Another problem is that the 3rd party splitter cables are also unreliable."
_
"Razor did not want to replace the a $4 splitter cable that broke after 4 months of use."
_
"I had these for a few days they they fell along with my tablet and they still work and have no scratches unlike my tablet in which the cable was so strong it broke the headphone jack in the tablet because of the fall."
_
"Unfortunately, the splitter cable broke after a week's use and Razer does not have the part in stock."
_
"Love this headset, haven't had a problem other than the crappy adapter cable it comes with is cheaply made."
_
"While they are pretty good headphones, the fact that they use proprietary cables and converters is a real pain if these converters and cables break on you."
_
"The ear cups seemed to be for someone with smaller ears and would cause pain after 2hrs other than that they were pretty good ( I also wished the cord was braided)"
_
"- Its so comfortable in general and comparing the other 2.- Cord is good quality and lenght is just good for me."
_
"The only downside I can think of is being a little bit too tight on my head then again I probably just have a wide head :P Perfect length cord as well as it doesn't get caught up under my chair and comes with an extention cable that seperates mic from headphones port."

Color

Color:
"Even with the free software they include, I was not able to find any way of customizing the colors."
_
"Only problem....my school colors (we are huge rivals with a school who's color is green) but back to the review."
_
"I got the green color and I love it!"
_
"For starters, I love the color & design."
_
"Let me say right off the bat Im very much a fan of Razer products (well atleast there PC peripherals, the one Xbox controller they made was a piece of junk) You can always count on a quality build and the sleek blackgreen colors to lure you in to dropping some serious green of your own."
_
"Solid, comfortable, firm, snug, with great sound and a fun color."
_
"My son loves the headset and green is his favorite color"

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"As for the quality complaints these are very comfortable and I wear glasses, so that says something."
_
"This headset sounds pretty good, where it fails though is comfort."
_
"A bit of a problem with the comfort probably because I have a bit of a misshapen head."
_
"For the cost though I can't complain too much, but the comfort on these are not good."
_
"Terrible comfort."
_
"I love this headset it sounds great i can hear an enemy walked up behind me and they are very comfortable only problem is the mic its horrible its got a lot of static and not clear at all"
_
"Although the earcups are the slightest bit too small for my ears, the headband is very comfortable, the leatherette material on the earcups is soft and great for long use, and the sound quality is excellent."
_
"The build is extraordinary, they're more than comfortable and the noise isolation is really great."
_
"They fit very, very well & are very comfortable to wear for long periods of time."
_
"They sit comfortable and the sound is decent."
_
"They are pretty comfortable though, and the microphone is pretty good."

Connector

Connector:
"I have used sets through the jack before with no issue, but this one just didn't seem to be able to handle it."
_
"nice product but hard to configure with a combined audio mic jack and in my opinion is kinda uncomfortable for long periods of wear"
_
"I had these for a few days they they fell along with my tablet and they still work and have no scratches unlike my tablet in which the cable was so strong it broke the headphone jack in the tablet because of the fall."
_
"Instead, do yourself a favor and just order the StarTech MUYHSFMM 3.5mm 4 Pin to 2x3 Pin 3.5mm Headset Splitter Adapter - F M splitter instead to connect the headset to your separate mic headset connectors; it's very sturdy and only a few inches long, which solves the problem others have had over tangled cords and broken splitters.3) Overall design and build quality is good."
_
"The microphone jack was DOA (Dead on Arrival)."
_
"making the connector very very weak."
_
"The fact that they only require a 3.5mm jack instead of a USB port is very nice and the mic quality is really good."
_
"The headphone jack for using them as headphones is a great length."
_
"It is getting to the point where I take good 1~2 minutes just spinning the audio jack just so I can hear something on the right."
_
"CONS:- Even though Razer made these headphones to be easily disconnected with the audio jack connector half way up the cable so you can easily disconnect it and take it with you on the go."
_

Control

Control:
"In addition, the in line volume control (which is the whole reason I chose this headset) is very flaky when adjusting it up or down, the sound disappears from one or the other ear completely."
_
"My complaints are that there are no in line controls for the mic or even the volume."
_
"The only problem I have is there is no volume control or mute switch."
_
"Pros: color, roll up ear piece, extendable micCons: No volume control, not comfortable on head, sound is a two star"
_
"The only way to control volume is through your computer which is rather annoying."
_
"Audio quality meets or beats expectations for a set in this price range but audiophiles may be disappointed by the lack of in depth control, but, odds are audiophiles aren't reading this review."
_
"Needs a volume control and a mute switch and it'd be nice."
_
"Would be nice if it had a volume control on the headset as well."
_
"they sound good and quality looks ok and they do feel comfortable but they have no volume control or mute buttons."
_
"The headset speakers do work great but there is no volume control on the headset which at the time I bought it I didn't know and the computer still doesn't recognize the mic."
_
"You have to download the free volume control center (easy to use)."

Design

Design:
"Nothing wrong with other razer products but this one just had poor design."
_
"Good sound quality, and good mic, but terrible terrible TERRIBLE design."
_
"Instead, do yourself a favor and just order the StarTech MUYHSFMM 3.5mm 4 Pin to 2x3 Pin 3.5mm Headset Splitter Adapter - F M splitter instead to connect the headset to your separate mic headset connectors; it's very sturdy and only a few inches long, which solves the problem others have had over tangled cords and broken splitters.3) Overall design and build quality is good."
_
"I like the mic design in the head set but found it to be uncomfortable after wearing it for a couple hours"
_
"So I try to register product to see if I can get a program to change it through software or something and it asks for my serial number so I pull off the ear piece like it shows and boom no serial number and I got a broke headset right out of the package, sweet design, so sweet that it breaks and is INCREDIBLY hard to figure out how it works because there is no inline volume button."
_
"However, Razer truly went all out with this design because in the time I have had them they not only have had no problems they are the best sound quality I have seen in headsets."
_
"But the design and the speakers are great."
_
"Great sound and design! "
_
"For starters, I love the color & design."
_
"The design is cool feels pretty comfortable."

Echo:
"The only complaint is that it echoes in teamspeak 3."
_

_
"Had to turn down the gain tremendously before the echos were kept to a minimum but I was not able to totally rid of them."
_
"When I use Skype with my friend, they always complain on how they can hear an echo from my headset."
_
"The only problem so far is that if I am using them to game and chat on Skype or something I have to turn t+down because the other person can +ear them self echo through my head phone which can become rather annoying when playing a game where hearing the sounds in the game are important."
_
"A little bit of an echo in my opinion, but a great look and feel"

"Not much use for gaming, sadly, again as the mic is too weak to pick up voice properly, so game audio drowns it out the the point at which it may as well not exist."

Heavy

Heavy:
"The audio out of them is really bass heavy but any audiophile will tell you it's not always good to have your lowest slider on your EQ all the way up, however not too bad if you're gaming on PS4 like I did."
_
"Like most gamers we are usually on for hours at a time and an uncomfortable and heavy headset can definitely make you feel it."
_
"These aren't too heavy, and I love that the mic slides in and out of the ear piece for when you're not using it."
_

_
"Good sound quality, heavy duty plastics."
_

"Whomever is the designer for Razer packaging should be sent to a very unpleasant level of Dante's Inferno to suffer for eternity."
_

Listening

Listening:
"- It comes with external audio adapter(I probably called it wrong) so while you listening music with your phone or ipod mics jak doesnt stupidly swings around."
_
"This headset doesnt sound terrible but is definitely a step down in sound quality but it is cheaper than the x31, that isnt saying that I dont enjoy listening to music on the kraken pro."
_
"If your looking to using this mic, and listening to music at the same time, I DO NOT RECOMMEND."
_
"The bass and guitar just over powers the voices so it isn't necessarily the best pair of headphones overall for music listening, or even voices."

_
"Pros:- Noise cancelation is perfect while listening."
_
"Love the headset for gaming and listening to music."

Material

Material:
"Feels nice but the band part feels cheap like i can rip through the pleather-like material because the inside feels like there is a piece of weak cardboard with some cushion on the bottom; they don't even feel attached to each other."
_
"Does not feel good on the ears, the material used is good for sound blocking but not comfort."
_
"I ll never buy razer products again, thats my bad i bought overrated razer product instead logitech or sennheiser... Stay away from this product material quality is worst i ve ever seen."
_
"(Just a little side note some reviews I've read said that they are squeaky, well mine are not the material is amazing)"
_
"It's not that the headset is too tight, it's that the inner foam is not a comfortable material."
_
"however this headset is very stiff and uncomfortable, the material around the speakers is rough and the limited flexibility of it makes it hard to stand wearing it for any length of time."
_
"Although the earcups are the slightest bit too small for my ears, the headband is very comfortable, the leatherette material on the earcups is soft and great for long use, and the sound quality is excellent."
_
"The have about a 1 inch thick leatherette material that fits perfectly around my ears."
_
"It is a very good headset with really good quality material and great for a gaming headset especially the very crisp sharp sounds when gaming and listening to music."

"Pros, very comfortable, high quality material, nice 2.0 stereo headset, good mic, awesome design - color."

Noise

Noise:
"Also, the microphone is not good quality and it picks up too much background noise."
_
"It requires a good sound card (not that cheap built-in), otherwise you will have an extremely annoying white noise on the background you cannot get rid of."
_
"It doesn't do as good as headphones that have some electric noise or program to cancel sound like Bose Headphones or the Beats Studios."
_
"I've been looking for a gorgeous set of headphones that effectively block outside noise for a while now and I couldn't be more satisfied with these."
_
"the only problems i have with it are: 1) the mike easily pics up noise from a fan (doesnt have a fuzzy thing at the end)2)there is no inline box to change volume and mute so sadly my friends here everything including when someone talks to me in home"
_
"To explain clear, they make a horrible noise from within the headset."
_
"The build is extraordinary, they're more than comfortable and the noise isolation is really great."
_
"Comfortable and great noise reduction!"
_
"The noise cancelling on this headset is so extreme that it would be nice to have quick access to volume adjusting so that you don't have to remove the headset every time you need to have a conversation."

Packaging

Packaging:
"I'd take off a star for the complex and frustrating packaging, but frankly, I expected this from Razer, having purchased other products from this company."

"There is no excuse for consumers to face so much hassle getting a product out of its package."
_
"Whomever is the designer for Razer packaging should be sent to a very unpleasant level of Dante's Inferno to suffer for eternity."

"Normally I would not even include this in the review, but this was the worst packaging I've ever had to open."

Performance

Performance:
"Good balance between price , looks , sound and mic, we all know it does not perform excellent in each area, but it's the best balanced overall3."
_
"Overpriced for its quality, although owning many Razer products- I was not satisfied with the performance of this headset."
_
"I didn't intend to buy so many, but was just disappointed with the performance of my earlier purchases and I was not satisfied until I got these."
_
"I feel like with all Razer products (which usually don't come cheap) you are actually paying the high price tag for the brand name because there is nothing about this headset that justifies it's high price (unless you are one of those people that like to buy brand name products over products that perform just as well but cost cheaper) You could buy a quality headset from a different manufacturer for $20 cheaper that will perform just as well as the Kraken Pro, and maybe even better."
_
"He is very satisfied with the quality and performance of these headphones for both gaming and listening to music with his iPhone."
_
"They perform well, with very strong high and lows, bass of course, but the only problem with them is the mids are very muddy if you listen to rock, or any music that isn't designed to be bass heavy."
_
"They look nice, perform great, come with a one year manufacture warranty (if you register them), and have great quality of sound when it comes to bass and sound effects."

Plastic

Plastic:
"The headband feels like not durable plastic."
_
"Build: (1 5)They are built fairly well, a lot of plastic running everywhere which never really is a good thing, but its not cheep plastic."
_
"I've dropped it on the ground a few times (which I wouldn't recommend) and It didn't damage any Internals or crack any plastic, the mic isn't that great, to be completely honest unless you needed a mic I'd just go with the Razer Kraken rather than the Pro Edition, although the retractable mic is a nice feature! "
_
"The quality of the plastic around the ear cups are flimsy watch out."
_
"The headset is awesome great buy, but sadly after three months of gaming use ( running around for place to place for lan centers etc....) the headset is breaking the plastic in the headband i think is pretty weak quality....never did I drop the headset or slam it on the desk."
_
"They had great quality sound, but the plastic it was constructed of felt a bit cheap."
_
"Gripe 4: Packaging: This headset was a PITA to get out of the heavily taped clear plastic and cardboard box."
_
"Good sound quality, heavy duty plastics."
_
"When you try to take the ear cups off the part that attaches to the plastic to keep them from falling off breaks easily."
_
"Maybe I'm just used to my old headphones, but the sound quality felt like someone had lined the inside of the headphones with plastic to prevent sound from coming out clear."

Plug

Plug:
"Like your ipod ipad androidphone tablet 2) Doesn't need to have any driver installed (plug and play, literally)Sound is terrible.... but Razer Sound Cloud does have a good equalizer."
_
"I hate the little plugs for the mic and phones because if you have lotion, sweat or any sort of moisture on your hands they slip in your fingers and you end up yanking on the cord."
_
"(This makes them very comfortable)If you are worried about the two jack plug on the wire for the mic headphone, don't worry it is also a single jack plug in wire thing."
_
"Also I had a problem about how long the cable that plugs into your computer, I have a rolling chair and the plug to the headset got ran over and smashed, so I had to get a cheap replacement cable, which was only like $3 so I had no problems with it."
_
"It's more my fault, I always pulled the plugs out the front of my computer by the wire when I should have been pulling the plug itself."
_
"The only issue I had was that the plugs were a little weak."
_
"they are a great pair of headphones and feel amazing but the base will sometimes rattle and idont like that but besides that they are amazing they have gold plugs which help quality the mic works amazing too and it pushes into the side so its not out if u dont want it to be"
_
"Plug in a known good headset.4."
_
"Setting up takes a matter of minutes, few plugs and you're good to go."
_
"The four-pole mini plug works great on our laptop, tablets and mobile phones."
_
"For an analog headset it is excellent especially because of the unified plug that goes right into my Macbook or phone and lets me use the mic as well as the speakers."

Price

Price:
"This is one of the worst headsets i have ever used its terrible for the price as is everything razer makes besides maybe the black widow keybored."

_
"Its another Great product from razer, i have been using there for about 2,5-3 years and i love them the sound is great for music and gaming, they are build very durable and nothing broke yet, the only flaw i have is the mic it sounds pretty OK but i have been getting some isuess that if i skype and play games at the same time my people on skype can sometimes hear my ingame sound and thats pretty annoying for them, but further this is a really really good headset for the price!"
_
"It requires a good sound card (not that cheap built-in), otherwise you will have an extremely annoying white noise on the background you cannot get rid of."
_
"They do sound good, but for this money and for a Razer product I was expecting a much, much better sound quality."
_
"This headset is the best headset i have ever heard i have tried bose, turtle beach and beats and in my opinion all suck i have never had a problem with these, they dont feel cheap like turtle beach and they work with my phone a great plus"
_
"Overall I think its a decent headset but it is not worth the price."
_
"Good at this price."

_
"I'm happy with my razer kraken pro, it match with my hardware, the mic and sound are more than enough for me, and it feel like premium gear, I used to be a beats guy, but I will never go back after having this HS, better sound and better quality .One recommendation, I use this to travel as well and if you so, please buy your self a case , this gear it's kind off big for having them on your neck when not using them."

Sensitive

Sensitive:
"Waaayyyy too sensitive, and these are the most uncomfortable headsets ever."
_
"(I even steal them from him time to time) The sound quality is amazing and the microphone is a little sensitive, but not to the point where it becomes a hassle."
_
"So many years of drumming has made my ears more sensitive, so it's just too hard to wear when my ears begin to hurt."
_
"there is no mid or high frequency, its all deep sounds, does not sound good at all the sometimes my ears feel sensitive i have to stop playing the game because the sounds annoy me so much.. not only that the leather in the headphones do not allow for your ears to breathe and they sweat and i have ear aches ever since i started using these headphones."
_
"The microphone is great, but just way too sensitive."
_
"Granted they're sensitive :P It would be absolutely amazing to get a morph of the Razer Kraken Pro comfort and sound quality with the decent mic quality of the Turtle Beach PX22's.5 star for headset comfort and epic sound.1 star for the mic."
_
"Sound quality is amazing, but the microphone is way too sensitive and picks up sound from the headset even at low volume."

Setting

Setting:
"Shame it doesn't come with a good default setting."
_
"The only little glitch is that we needed to change some settings on the desktop computer to accept this device as the default."
_
"Razer's site indicated that it was something you had to Fix by playing with windows gain settings and that just didn't sit well with me."
_
"The 5.1 Surround Sound System works very well especially for gaming and it can be adjustable via the Razer Surround software, which also brings a range of useful sound settings and a customizable EQ that can easily enhance the already excellent sound they bring."
_
"Setting up takes a matter of minutes, few plugs and you're good to go."
_
"Im not going to go into technical details, but it has nice crisp sound, (also a loud bass, but you can turn that down in your own settings) and a pretty functional mic if you just want to game."
_
"Excellent, a lightly quiet to start but adjust some settings and its good to go! "
_
"The sound is so muffled that no matter how you try to adjust the sound settings, it is just not possible to hear any clear sound out of this."

Sound

Sound:
"In addition, the in line volume control (which is the whole reason I chose this headset) is very flaky when adjusting it up or down, the sound disappears from one or the other ear completely."

_
"But I guess I'm a little fussy with sound quality."

Speaker

Speaker:
"The right speaker broke after a few months, however I haven't spoken to anyone else with the same issue so it was most likely a user problem"
_
"The memory foam earmuffs are great but your ear will touch the speaker part and its not that comfortable when you wear it for a long period of time."
_
"Mic quality is horrible and the speakers blow out within a couple of weeks."
_
"Had to replace in December of the same year as the speaker in the right can failed."

_
"The surround software fails to deliver proper surround and sounds less like 360 degrees AROUND you, and more like 360 above and below you, like a clock on a wall."
_
"They provide some sense of surround sound, albeit not strong, and have a very nice sound."
_
"Overall I cannot recommend the Razer Kraken 7.1 Surround Sound Over Ear USB Gaming Headset for 7.1 Surround, but i can and do recommend them if that feature is not important to you."

"This headset fails at achieving it's headline feature; 7.1 Surround Sound."
_
"The headphones sound amazing and give you great surround sound, while the mic quality goes out very clear and crisp."

Weight:
"While having solid construction is a plus, I find the weight of the headset quite a drawback compared to other headsets that I have used."

"The band is very comfortable, however, those people who say they play ridiculous amounts of hours and it doesn't weigh down on their head, sound like they're lying."
_
