Audio

Audio:
"For these reasons, I do not enjoy the product, and cannot recommend it to anyone who wants a quality audio product."

"Its drivers stop every pc recording software I use from recording ANY audio, and all the forums I have checked are stating the same problem with many more."
_
"One problem my last headset had (another brand) was audio bleeding."
_
"Overall I do like these headphones, they're a good replacement for my aging Logitech G35, which were literally falling apart when I replaced them, but they are missing some features mainly being physical audio adjustment buttons and mute mic button."
_
"Pros: Audio Impressive- Pretty comfortable long term- Does not use Razer Surround software- Great audio customization in Razer SynapseCons: - Cord somehow tangles a lot"

"The audio quality is very good when you tweak the settings in Synapse to your liking."

Cable

Cable:
"My main complaint is that the cord somehow twists up while it is on my head."
_
"The length of the cord is also horrible, at just 5 feet."
_
"I don't think I'm going to throw them away because of it but Razer should probably make that cord plastic covered to avoid this problem."
_
"The only problem I had with this headset was the weak cord."
_
"He doesnt have a problem with the cord noise at the neckline."
_
"My only regret in this purchase was not getting the braided cable with the 3 8 jack instead of the usb because I'm running out of usb ports."
_
"Pros: Audio Impressive- Pretty comfortable long term- Does not use Razer Surround software- Great audio customization in Razer SynapseCons: - Cord somehow tangles a lot"
_
"The feel of the braided cable is nice, however, any time it rubs against my shirt or desk, it results in microphonics."
_
"The USB cord to connect to it is braided, which for me is a good thing because the abuse that i put it through."
_
"The USB cable is plenty long enough, and I love that the microphone just slides away into the left ear cup."
_
"The cord is cloth covered and gets twisted easily, plus anything the cord rubs up against carries the rubbing sound to the Headset, that can be annoying."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"One of the only things that I want to complain about is that they're not as soft and comfortable as I thought, and for people with big ears such as myself, this may become a hassle."
_
"Comfort Typically, headsets tend to get uncomfortable around the ears ear cup and I must say, WEaring these for a couple hours felt great."
_
"They're comfortable, easy to use, and are worth every penny."
_
"Pros: Audio Impressive- Pretty comfortable long term- Does not use Razer Surround software- Great audio customization in Razer SynapseCons: - Cord somehow tangles a lot"

Fit

Fit:
"Now, I didn't take much off for this because I have a abnormally large head, and so its hard for most headsets to fit me particularly well, but the G930's main strength is that it is easily the most comfortable headset I've ever had."
_
"The only detail is that I wish it was a bit bigger, the fit is good and comfortable, but is not as comfortable as others and I think it can be improved with a bit more room for the ears."
_
"With a little adjusting, the headphones fit comfortably over my ears and, again, they sound great and the software for them is awesome for a little bass boost and virtual 7.1 surround."
_
"They are straight up circles, and so if your head doesnt fit, youre pretty much screwed because the plastic presses against your ears in the cups."
_
"I have used this headset for about a month, this headset has a few issues but overall it's ok. My issues were that the ear cups were just a little to small for my head so that they crushed my ears and were painful for more than 30 minutes of use (another 5% bigger and it wouldn't be a problem), there is no in-line built in volume control to speak of so you can't mute yourself (using PTT gets annoying after awhile) or change volume in game but most of all the volume itself is seriously lacking compared to other headsets I have used (max volume is 50-60% of other headsets), otherwise it is very well built and when I can fit my ears in the cups and it has very nice sound isolation and the mic boom locks into place out of the way when you push it all the way up so to avoid boom damage over time and the mic sensitivity is spot on."
_
"They cover my ears well and fit well."
_
"It fits nicely, and it's very, very beautiful!"

Gaming

Gaming:
"Not really recommended to wear for long periods of time for gaming."
_
"I've gone through a number of different styles of gaming headsets by Logitech, Plantronics and a few other not well known brands."
_
"Other large headsets i've used in the past seemed molded to a certain fixed curve form forcing the headphones to uncomfortably squeeze around your ears and head making gaming sessions unbearable after only half an hour."
_
"They are classified as a gaming headset, but are great for just about everything! "
_
"I have two pairs of headphones and they are both Krakens, and these ones are perfect for my office and gaming setup."
_
"I've had it for about a month now, casual use, sometimes for gaming and sometimes for recording music, and I've had no problems at all so far."
_
"These are the best PC gaming headsets you can buy for around $50 and I would absolutely recommend them."
_
"these headphones are great in style and feel great still have mine but the mic gos in it after a while and is commen for people to have the Mic stop working for them had them on my gaming channel tho and they worked amazing in tic thr mic brokd bug i still use them as a headset if ur looking for a mic try the hde desk mic its great but if ur looking for a full on headset i would tfy something else"

Light

Light:
"Another problem that i had found was that the mic has to be turned on, but it gets me a little upset when i use it because of the light that is in the corner of my eye every time that i look forward."
_
"Positives include build quality, packaging, comfort, and the aesthetic outside of the lights."
_
"It's a light weight headset that is perfect for any level of gamer."
_
"I too think it was comfy for light or extensive use and the mic quality was pretty awesome for the price I was paying."
_
"My sister loves it, but she did say that the light stopped working on it."
_
"The quality color of the lights is great and very bright."

Listening

Listening:
"The only con, the headphones themselves are pretty tight around the head which makes a few hours of listening feel painful to the ears."
_
"I got these to replace a rather obnoxious Logitech G930, a headset that I started out loving and then hated by the end (Had issues with listening to Flash programs videos, had problems with it's crappy receiver and it -constantly- getting interference, had problems with the battery saying properly charged, etc etc.)"
_
"That being said there's not going to be any pompous remarks about how this doesn't compete with so-and-so professional grade headphones or how if you don't have the best there is you might as well be listening to a tuna fish sandwich."
_
"it's also great for watching movies, listening to music, Skype calls...."
_
"Although these don't have sound cancellation per se, they earmuffs block out sound pretty well, and once you're listening to music or gaming, you can barely make out background noise."
_
"Blocks out a great deal of noise without listening to anything, and its pretty much impossible to hear someone next to you speaking at normal voice level if you are."
_
"My husband could hear a good portion of what I was listening to, and I could hear outside noise."
_
"Listening to music was a good experience as well but again the bass is a little strong for me."

Microphone

Microphone:
"The microphone is not fantastic but people that I Skype with have had no complaints."
_
"I wouldn't say amazing, but it does have a useful feature in the curl up mic"
_
"Secondly, the microphone is OVERLY sensitive, and the quality is terrible."
_
"Another problem that i had found was that the mic has to be turned on, but it gets me a little upset when i use it because of the light that is in the corner of my eye every time that i look forward."
_
"The Turtle Beach mic was absolutely horrible, with constant crackling, the build was uncomfortable, giving me constant headaches, and the sound was average at best."
_
"This is the only headset out of the line that does that, and while it is weird that it does so, it kind of makes it nice to know that your mic is telling you that its muted."
_
"It's a nice headset but has a low quality mic."
_
"Its microphone is also great."
_
"The quality of the mic was rather... decent."
_
"This mic has a pleasing, flexible, firm, and rubbery feel, and it can bend just enough to be the perfect distance away from your mouth."
_
"The mic is easy to use and really does stow away nicely when not in use."

Music

Music:
"it's also great for watching movies, listening to music, Skype calls...."
_
"They can even be used to listen to music comfortably, make Skype calls, or edit music if you're into it."
_
"I've had it for about a month now, casual use, sometimes for gaming and sometimes for recording music, and I've had no problems at all so far."
_
"Now I have to warn in advance, the Kraken 7.1 is an all-rounder focused on gaming, which means it can play music, movies and your regular videos and pc audio with very good results, but excels in games and audio FX."

Noise

Noise:
"He doesnt have a problem with the cord noise at the neckline."
_
"I thought it was a software problem, so I installed the headset proprtly using Razer Synapse 2.0.The setup was fairly easy:I had to download the Razer Synapse 2.0 software to register and fine-tune the headset, but the noise remained (meaning it is a hardware problem, probably low quality materials or improper manufacture)."
_
"It is annoying even though you only hear it at low game media volume levels and when nothing is playing on your computer (usually the games or media sounds cover the noise and you dont hear it as easily)."
_
"The digital mic is probably the best thing about this headset as the sound and background noise filtering are great!"
_
"Blocks out a great deal of noise without listening to anything, and its pretty much impossible to hear someone next to you speaking at normal voice level if you are."
_
"These do a great job at noise isolation!"
_
"Overall, I would say the headset is perfect for gaming with its noise cancelling gear."
_
"Microphone captures a very clear sound and the Noise Reduction feature provided in Razer Synapse works awesomely."

Price

Price:
"When i first got this headset it looked very nice and good quality out of the box, but when i wore them they felt like the cups for the ears werent big enough nor small enough, my ears would fit inside of the cup but go behind the padding and my ears would rub on the inside, very uncomfortable, the sound quality was very good for the price."
_
"I personally use an Astro A50 but compared to that and this, I would buy this for the price if mine broke."
_
"This the best headset money can buy for $100."

Razer

Razer:
"The sound is too muddy, and Razer's Synapse 2.0 (which isn't even good software as a whole) contains an EQ that just can't seem to fix the sound quality at all."
_
"I have just one complaint, why the hell razer can't help me?"
_
"If it's for a teenage son or daughter these are fine, if you want really good headphones than spend the extra money for quality cause these headphones aren't exactly the best that razer has to offer, no mute button, no volume or base control on the cord but you can use razer synapse to control the bass, the frequencies, and calibrate the headphones but even then it's really just a big let down for me."
_
"I don't know if it's just on my headset or everyone has this problem but it never happened on my old Razer Kraken Pros."
_
"The USB cable, as I think most cables are from razer, is the lovely hard to tangle wires that make switching from wireless to wired a lot less painful, always a plus."
_
"I thought it was a software problem, so I installed the headset proprtly using Razer Synapse 2.0.The setup was fairly easy:I had to download the Razer Synapse 2.0 software to register and fine-tune the headset, but the noise remained (meaning it is a hardware problem, probably low quality materials or improper manufacture)."
_
"Pros: Audio Impressive- Pretty comfortable long term- Does not use Razer Surround software- Great audio customization in Razer SynapseCons: - Cord somehow tangles a lot"
_
"The Razer Kraken USB's are a fantastic buy."
_
"Also a bonus, the Razer software that comes with it is very nice, and allows for easy adjustments with no confusing sound-boarding."
_
"Its sound is WAY too bassy for my taste straight from the box, but with the Razer synapse EQ you can easily tone the bass range down for more punchy and less boomy bass."

Sound

Sound:
"I could let the faults in the design go if the sound was tolerable, but my Turtle Beaches (that cost HALF of what the Krakens cost) has SUPERB balancing compared to these."
_
"Now, the real downside to my experience was the quality of the sound itself."
_
"When i first got this headset it looked very nice and good quality out of the box, but when i wore them they felt like the cups for the ears werent big enough nor small enough, my ears would fit inside of the cup but go behind the padding and my ears would rub on the inside, very uncomfortable, the sound quality was very good for the price."
_
"It took me a while to figure out why sound was only coming out of the speakers, but after much frustration, the FAQs on Razers website suggested that I play around with my computers audio system."
_
"Sound is mediocre at best."
_
"Also when I look down at the table when I'm studying and listening to the music, I can hear a noticeable decline in quality of sound, as if the soundproof seal is broken that is made by the cushions of the earpieces."
_
"They make hearing footsteps a lot easier and they make it easier to localize other sounds within games."
_
"The sound is pretty good with awesome virtual surrounding sound."
_
"Excellent sound quality and a great system to work with very happy."
_
"The sound quality is amazing and I would definitely recommend this item to others."

Surround

Surround:
"Not everything is perfect, the surround sound is a little lackluster in most games and it is difficult to find a volume setting that both showcases the surround sound without blowing your ears out."
_
"Pros: Audio Impressive- Pretty comfortable long term- Does not use Razer Surround software- Great audio customization in Razer SynapseCons: - Cord somehow tangles a lot"
_
"The surround sound is amazing!"
_

USB

USB:
"There was no retail box only the headset and coupons card,stickers and quick start guide, not sure if that's normal or not but I thought I would get it in original packaging, anyway as I plugged the headset into my computer it registered it as razer kraken 7.1 , I downloaded razer synapse and was excited to use this product, however 10 minutes in there was a pop noise and the headset disconnected only to display on my screen the usb had malfunction which then put me in the 1 1000 person for this to ever happen too , I probably just got a defected product but I never really expected this to happen to me , and now im in the one stars.10 10 would open my wallet again"
_
"My ONLY regret is getting them USB, as I now want to use them for other things such as my iPod, but am limited to USB ports only."
_
"I Bought these at the time For the ps4 and i didnt know about the update ruining the volume so i was diaspointed, soon i got use to it but there are certin games that work preety well for example cod actualy worked and 7.1 was amazing so i can definitly see Potential for these headphones if they fix the issue but soon i can put these to good use when i get a pc overall Wait till they fix the problem and there a 4.5 because its only usb so no phones or tablets and for those wondering What about pc on pc i would give it a 4.9 still because of the usb only"
_
"The newest problem is that no USB port recognizes my headset anymore (on any computer) just when my microphone problem seems to have fixed itself."
_
"It looks absolutely beautiful, and because it is USB, it works with any computer!"
_
"The Razer Kraken USB's are a fantastic buy."
_
"It doesn't reach all the way to the base of the USB port but it has done a wonderful job keeping the wire from getting worse."
_
"The USB cord to connect to it is braided, which for me is a good thing because the abuse that i put it through."
_
"Simple no hassle mobile USB gaming surround sound headset."

Video:
"Additionally, on the Mac, there are some serious driver issues that cause both Skype to go nuts periodically and Tomb Raider to totally fail out whenever it plays video."
