Razer Kraken Forged Music and Gaming Headphones : very good but with an issue on my pair

The razer kraken pro (green) headset is such an amazing headset to buy. I can see why pewdiepie, rooster teeth/ achievement hunter and people like them use them all the time for gaming and editing. Honestly i use these for the bus journeys into college by listening to music on my phone and they give out such an amazing sound quality and they don’t actually ‘leak’ sound that much. What i mean by this is that i can have the headphones at a sorta loud volume and the people around me can hardly hear the music i am listening to. Apart from when i take them off and hang them around my neck. Then people can hear what i am listening to of course. Using these for listening to music, playing games with on consoles and editing videos with them is such an amazing experience as you can really hear every soundworth the £65 i paid for them at christmas time.

First of all, the package arrived a week earlier than expected which is common with razer and props to them for that. Secondly, and i’ve already told my friends this, the razer kraken pro is the best purchase of my life. My previous headsets all broke within 2 months max. This one however is still perfectly functioning even after 6 months. The headset itself is a bit large, but is very comfortable. The sound quality is amazing. I thought i would be using this headset for games and stuff on my pc, but i actually use it to listen to music. I tried listening to dubstyle, hardstyle, techno, heavy metal, and other genres and it all sounds amazing but you must be sure that the file you are playing is actually in high definition in order to experience sounds you never have before. I urge anyone out there looking for a headset to buy this thing i swear you wont regret it. By the way, i don’t usually make long reviews but i took my time for this product because it’s absolutely woth it.

So first of my issue could be a one off but however they still work. The wire has a connector in the middle for some reason a bit like an extension lead for the headset lead however mine is very sensitive if i move it one of my ear pieces will cut out then i have to twist it and play with it to get it to work so if you are going to be active then take it into consideration however im sat at my pc and trap the wire in my desk drawer and it seems to work fine. Now a positive the sound quality and bass on the headset is great especially for music and films and games etc they improved my gaming performance going from a cheap headset that was pretty bad now i can hear were shots and footsteps are coming from accurately and clearly :).

They are very comfortable i am able to wear them for a great deal of time and not have them hurt. The ear cups are also breathable so you ears do not get to hot or sweaty like on other headsets. The sound is great and they have a decent level of noise reduction form outside. I often find people have to tap me on the shoulder to get my attention when i have them on. As for the colour if you are looking for something that is garish but stands out in a crowd, these are the headphones for you my friend. Would highly recommend to anyone. Only downside is the prize which is a bit more than i would expect. But you are paying for the brand on that one. Still worth it in my opinion.

Was in need of a new headset for both my pc and xbox as i like to play all sound through a headset. After browsing for a while i surprisingly found the razer product to be the best quality for price value, i have always preferred over the ear head phones for comfort and i can certainly say these are very comfy to wear for long periods of time and the sound quality is brilliant. If you wish to use these on xbox you will need the chat adapter.

I bough this headset about 2 weeks ago so i’ve got some decent experience with it now. Setup: 5/5my favorite thing about it is the simplicity, just a 3. 5 mic cable coming out of it, super easy to set up. Gaming: 5/5i’ve mostly been playing cod and fallout since i got the headset. It’s fairly easy to get an idea about where footsteps/gunfire are coming from in cod, the bass is great so for games with a lot of explosions and planes the headset lends a very immerse experience. Fallout also sounds great, the voices are clear and and depth, and the ambient sound track plays well through the headset. Music: 3/5this is the headsets one weakness in my opinion – the bass is overpowering with the mids being overly muffled. Sounds like your listening through a pillow. It’s not bad by any means, but if your going to be listening to a lot of music and require good sound accuracy then this might not be for you.

With the razer sorround software it works like a 7. 1 headsetit’s awesome when you hear something behind you and it was really coming from behind you. It does not come with a volume button nor a mic (there is the pro version for that, so that’s not a minus). 5 jack extender came with it and it is the best extra i’ve ever receivedso much better than a long cablefor the streets the standard cable length is enough. And when you are using it at home and plug it into a sound system that’s not necceseraly near you, you can use it. It is comfortable and i can use it for a whole a day without any backdraw. (sometimes at weekends i’ve the whole day for myself, meaning 10 am to next day 2 am)has great bass and so far endured the everyday torture that is i’m using it. Bought it at black friday so the price was good, otherwise it would be pricey.

5 out of 5 for looks (forged edition) however, i have 2 gripes with them. The sound is muddy and too bass orientated, and this comes from someone who loves nothing better than loads of bass. My other problem concerns fit. The angle of adjustment on the earpieces is insufficient insofar as they provide a good seal at the bottom of my ears but not on the top of my ears. Which i hope is due to a design fault in the headphones and not the shape of my head :-(.

I bought these to replace the philips shp2500 headphones id been using for over 10 years. They still worked great, but i felt it was time i desperately needed an upgrade. I am not very tech savvy so after some fiddling about with the settings on my computer i finally got them to work and wow, the quality on these were amazingit felt like id been listening to games half deaf, ive always had my pc on the highest volume but now i never need to surpass 15% and it feels like im in the game itselfthe colour is really the only gripe i have, its not really the bumblebee yellow it is in the picture but more a high vis jacket yellow. I dont really mind, and doesnt take away from its lovely look, just a little deceiving. As for the comfort, most of the time i have been wearing these for hours at a time and they still remain comfortable, to the point i forget im wearing them half the time. The ear cups seem to have a slight suction when you take them off, which i guess is intentional to help iliminate outside noise when on, which it does extremely wellthe mic ive only used once, and was told i sounded quite loud but very clear. However i completely put this down to my own mistakes on setting it up and not moving the mic further away enough from the headset.

I wear glasses while i game so i was searching for something to be very comfortable while gaming. The kraken are amazing for this with a few small issues:- sound quality sometimes degrades- mic is terrible- cable leaks interference+ very comfortable+ very comfortable with glasses+ very nice for long gaming sessions+ strong sound+ good isolation.

Great product, had watched these for a while, as i needed a new pair of headphones, but wasn’t in a rush to get them, so jumped in over the black friday flash sales. Couldn’t ask for more really, the sound quality is good, they block background noise very well, comes with a pretty long extension cable allowing me to easily connect them to 2 devices without having to fumble around trying to find the sockets every time. Packaged well, and delivered on time as well.

I managed to get these for £42 from amazon. They perform as well, if not better than my dre beats which cost £100+. They’re super comfortable but quite large, i wouldn’t wear them outside as you’d look a bit silly. The bright colours are very cool but i’m not sure they’re worth the extra money. If you’re buying these to play online with friends, i would recommend getting the microphone version.

I don’t often write reviews on amazon, but i feel i should for this – because it is superb. I bought these headphones a few weeks ago, and am very pleased about my purchase. They’re super-comfy, the sound quality is amazing, razer surround is phenomenal, and they’re easy to use. There are a couple of downsides, like the no-frills design on the input front – there’s no controller, all sound has to be controlled through the pc – but on the whole, it’s great, and at a reasonable price. And don’t think this doesn’t have 7. 1 surround sound when compared to the kraken 7. You simply download the software from razer’s site, for free (next year you’ll have to pay $20 usd if you haven’t already downloaded it), you configure it easily and there you are. It feels really genuine, and i have honestly – no jokes – turned my head in the direction of the sound several times because it feels so real and immersive. The headphones in pos and neg form:+ very comfy.

So i’ve had the headset a mere 8 hours but i do have many thoughts on this headset. So the first time i tried to hook it up to my pc, i had some major driver problems which at first, i blamed on the headset although it turned out to be the sound card i had. But then for a while my pc would blue screen every time the headset was unplugged. No idea why, but that’s no longer an issue either. Another problem i had at first was that the mic would just playback the pc audio for some reason and only one of the headset speakers would work. Again, this is a problem you might have but for whatever reason, mine has stopped doing that. With regards to the sound quality, it’s good. It’s not amazing my any means, my primary headset are the corsair vengeance 2000’s and in comparison, the corsair headset blows this out the water, however, the sound is perfectly acceptable on this headset. The only major complaint about the sound is that it’s extremely bass heavy like any gaming headset. All i can suggest is altering your eq settings if possible to correct this.

I’ve seen this asked quite a bit so what is analog??. Analog is where you can plug your headset into a standard headphones port such as your phone or laptop. – this is the circular port holes in which earphones and such go into. Positive:- sound quality is good. I’m kind of used to it now but when i first got them i was like wow this is so good. Comparing them to my other headphones (which were £30) they’re sooo much better on so many levels. It picks up quite a lot though; keystrokes, mouse clicks, people talking in the backgound and most notably my neighbours dog barking. – comfortable ear cups and headband.

If you know anything about razer gaming gear you will know it is pretty good but can be pricey. This is a basic entry level headset. Despite this sound quality and microphone pickup is good. It feels a quality unit and unlike some headsets doesn’t rattle too much nor is it too heavy in extended use. Downsides are, it does not offer surround sound (not going to find that feature at this price level anyway in fairness) and there is no in line volume control, which is the only reason i didn’t rate it with 5 stars. For the more expert or concerning user though, you can move up to the next model above from razer.

Sound quality is not great but bass is, if you’re looking for very bass driven heaphones, look no more. The build quality is great too, they fit confortably and they even come with a cable extension in case you are far away from your sound output. 3 stars just because of the sound quality, i would not recommend these to anyone looking to listen to music with them, for games and high bass songs, it’s good.

I bought these headphones on sale on black friday 2014, and i have been using them for several weeks now. These headphones are just what i expected from razer: excellent sound and very comfortable while wearing. I wanted some headphones that i could use both while gaming and listening to music, and once i saw these on sale i knew i should give them a try. They give deep and impressive sound while playing a game, and the sound leakage is not too great at normal volumes. They offer the same rich sound quality and while listening to music. These headphones are well made and do not appear like they can be broken easily. They are also made from quality material that allows for comfort when wearing and can result in long listening sessions without any problems. Highly recommend these headphones to anyone looking for a great item both for music and gaming :).

I’ve had these headphones for almost year and a half and they are still going strong. No hiccups or faults or anything of that nature. Pros:- the headphones are extremely comfortable to wear. – the sound quality is really good and you do get sucked into them when playing music or audio somewhat loud. – they look really cool and fashionable but they do look a bit big on your head. – the pull-out microphone feature is very handy when you want to use it for just music as it is very well concealed. 3m cord is easily enough and even more than you’ll need to attach to your portable device or pc/laptop. – having one connector that provides audio to both cups is less hassle than other headphones. – like i said, i’ve has them for a long time and they are very durable and also moderately portable as you can fold them in.

The headset is not that bad but, the mic is not very good at all and the extension wires that came with the headset made it have an annoying buzz that would only stop when you unplugged the headset, would recommend to people if they already had a mic and there pc was not to far away from their deskupdate. The buzzing sound was from the psu and it fixed it completely, this made the mic better but not great. If you just want to game and talk to people on skype it is fine but, if you want to use it to record don’t bother. It is one of the worst mics at the moment. The sound quality however is one of the best. Don’t buy if you want to record. Use generic head phones and buy a blue snowball if you record.

Really nice headset at a nice price. For the price range i would recommend it, however if you can i think saving up for the 7. Pros:for me personally it is a nice comfortable headset and i still stand by this for the year and a half i have had them but i know the circle ear cub design would not be a good choice for the people who prefer a more egg shaped style cupgood sound quality but not surround (you can use their razer surround software to simulate surround sound and it works pretty well)the mic is retractable which is useful if you want to just use them as your out and about headphones or if you just move around allot which is nice if that’s what you needcons:the mic, the mic on the kraken pro is very annoying as it picks up noises you can hear through your headphones very easily which is very annoying if you use skype or anything similar. I have looked around and asked other people and it seems as though loads of people have this problem but i can’t ever find a fix. It might have something to do with the splitter that is including but im not sure as i don’t have another one to test it. The only other problem i have is with the mic too. It just doesn’t come out far enough. I think the sound quality would improve massively if the microphone would be in front of your mouth when fully extended rather than at your cheek. Both these problems have been fixed in the usb 7.

Audio is extremely good, however the mic can play up. You are either too loud or too quiet, quality isnt that great on the recipient’s end. Extremely heavy on the head so can’t use for long.

My son thinks these are briilliant. Great sound and good design. Robust enough for a teenage lad not to break too easily too.

Comfortable even when playing all day, mic is good, sound is clear and all in all perfect gaming headset. Only slight irk is there is no way of turning the mic off whilst using the headset so if you have it plugged into a console controller, be prepared for any recording or online game to pick up your breathing, coughing ect.

Definitely more pink than purple which was a huge bonus for me. Sound quality is great and the mic is awesome too. The fact it retracts is a huge bonus. Better than i could have ever expected.

The sound quality of the speakers are very good, considering the price. It is not a usb headset but the cable itself is pretty long so getting it to your microphone audio port is not an issue. The microphone sound itself comes out as very quiet in programs like discord and skype, with lots of tweaking the improvement didn’t do much. I soon retired this for a desk microphone.

Right first things first,negatives if you’re used to having a long wire that allows you to move around a bit, just know that the wire without the adapter on (which was a nice added feature) it’s not long, and also it hurts my ears after some time, i don’t know wheather my ears are just big and dont fit but i’ll have to take them off for a bit after like 2 hours. Positives, very good audio and all round good headset.

I was wondering from the day they released if they were worth the price. It’s like you’re in the studio the time that the music its been created. Plus it came way sooner i was expecting it.

For the price of this headset it has a done a job well done. Congrats to razer for making a very stable product this has lasted me nearly 3 to 4 years and it has performed very high and consistent, if this doesn’t say anything than you are not well educated about gaming headsets.

Superb quality, perfect for gaming, the mic is as clear as you like and the playback from games is brilliant, you can hear people coming from a mile away in games, also brilliant at noise cancelling from the outside world.

Look great, feel great, but no volume controller or mute button. If you don’t need or want either then these will be fine. Will be sending back and buying a version with controls.
