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.
Got these just today, and the product was a little less to what i expected. Pro’s:- sound quality – pretty good to be honest, music sounds great through them. I’m no expert, but the clarity and depth was definitely there- noise isolation – does that job fairly well thanks to the almost abnormal amount of padding covering the product- looks – sort of iffy to be honest; razer products most always look awesome, but the kraken’s are a little large on the earcups and headband so to say. People say the green pair look like it was bought from a toy store, not my opinion but i can see why- comfort – thanks to the padding provide a fairly comfortable fit, earcups and headband definitely with extortionate cushion. Could see myself wearing on a long haul flightcon’s:- comfort can be argued to become suffocating; the headband feels like it clamps to your head making usage fairly uncomfortable after a while, not helped by the earcups warming your ears to such an extent that you want to take them off- on that note, wearing them around your neck is fairly uncomfortable (unless you have a fairly long neck) if you like to do so as of the incredibly large drivers pressing against your mouth even- it’s a matter of preference whether you like incredibly bulky headphones or not, but as a result weigh your head down, which doesn’t help if you already have pains in your neck at points to start with, and prevents sufficient long term usagei wouldn’t say these headphones are awful, but they aren’t great either in my opinion. I think i was a little more compelled by that luring razer branding that’s so attractive and well designed, which put me into buying headphones which i didn’t actually like. Suggest you think about whether you’re buying for the use or the label before purchase.

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.
Headphone cable does a good job. Retractable mic goes all the way in which is cool. Underneath the orange paint, there’s white plastic. The paint isn’t the most durable but it is still really good. As the user of many headsets i must say that the bass is very loud and sometimes i wish there was less of it (e. When i’m shooting in cod it masks other small noises made by enemy). With the phone they play quite loud, but to unleash their full potential use 7.
So, had my set just over a year of long use. At first i did not like the lack of a volume/mid control on a reasonably midrange set. It was like a vice on my head but. New headset so i overlooked that. Audio was nice and clear and once it stopped trying to crush my head was very comfortable. Over the year however problems have cropped up making it a pain in the backside the headset has been looked after and not thrown around, bit disappointed will probably look to other manufacturers for a new set. Fabric on the cups have split allowing the foam to come out,the audio cuts out on the cups, left hand one 90% of the time doesn’t work without moving the headset around. Left hand cup joint plastic has snapped,headband fabric has pulled away from the plastic grips and the foam inside has come out,rubber around the wire onto the headset snapped off also. Mic works fine still but as a headset it is irritating and practically useless as it is now.
Razer kraken analog music and gaming headphones – e-panda hooligan editioni had been looking for some headphones for quite a while and i was just browsing these and found a pair for £35 used but to be honest these where brand new not a mark on them and sealed in a perfect box. I decided not getting the 7. 1 with mic, as listening to other people, the quality was quite poor, plus i use a blue yeti as my personal microphone also razer’s own software lets you use simulated 7. Sound – not the best sound you will ever hear. The same as beats technical wise (20 – 20,000 hz freq, 40 mm driver) the lows are very good, highs not the best but sufficient, you not going to notice much different to other headphones if your listening anything over youtube or watching a stream, but playing games, movies or lossless music you defiantly will. Look and feel – very soft padding around the ear cups, i can last around 5-8 hr before having to change to a different type of headphone, maybe my ears are bigger then normals people but after a while, the ear parts closer to my face start to hurt and i need to take an hours break, i think if they didn’t press on my head that much this problem could have been solved. The good news is that they feel really solid and i don’t think they will break any time soon. The wire is one of the things i love. 2m for when you need to move around your room without taking them off. Overall – if you get them for a good price buy them, do not pay full price, this is typical of any razer product. Would have loved to see a bag included with them as i’v bought headphones that cost £30 and come with a bag.
Bought 2 of these, both for my brothers. As i purchased a razer kraken 7. 1 for myself, i noticed that i was struggling a lot with the fact that it was usb and the software (synapse) really takes over the sound mixer, however that’s for another review. But that was the reason i got them analog instead of the 7. Turns out that using these headsets with mumble/teamspeak is a real pain. It took a long time to figure out what was wrong. To this day i dont know how it suddenly started working. For both of my brothers, running mumble and teamspeak at the same time wont work, 1 voip gets muted. And also sometimes it causes echo in the voip. The headset itself is very comfortable, and the sound sure is very good, which is what you want in a headset. But the constant configuring in synapse and other game settings is just too much for me and my brothers.
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.
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.
Very bass heavy to the point that they begin to leak into the lower mid range however the bass does pack quite a punch with very strong vibrations which run through the ears and around the neck giving a very emersive bass. The highs are very strong but can very occasionally be quite sharp. After listen to several of my favourite genres (dubstep, edm, drum and bass, rap, trap) i decided that the sweet spot is in slower paced trap where the bass is very heavy and the main synth consists of mainly high pitch single beat notes as it complements the pros of these headphones. As for gaming the bass gives a very punchy sound especially when playing fps games. For communications however voices can be a little muffled as the lower mid range is quite overrun by the bass and the higher mid which causes most voices have the lower tones removed. In terms of functionality the fixed cable can be an issue for some but i feel as if it is strong enough to survive most everyday use. They are a rather chunky pair of headphones that, unless you have a smaller head shape, will stick out at the sides meaning that for most these wont be a going out headphones. For those who do/can wear them out the retractable mic is a great feature that allows for the mic to become barely visible without close inspection, however as of yet i have not been able to get the mic to function on my desktop which isn’t really a problem for me as i have a desktop mic however it would of been a nice feature for monitoring the sound recorded by the mic with which would be an incredibly useful feature considering the superb sound isolation the pleather cups combined with the strong clamping force gives. As for comfort at first they are extremely soft with the gentle pleather cups and breathable mesh over the headband however over time the headband can become quite irritable across the top of your head and can require some small adjustments and before correctly worn in the ear cups cause aches around the jaw and ear area (i suggest lightly stretching the headphones by the headband for about 5 minutes before putting them on). Overall i think that if you are looking for a relatively cheap pair of comfortable headphones that pack a very punchy bass with a lot of vibrations then these are the pair for you, however be aware of the headphones issues especially with lower mid tones as this can be quite a turn off for some people.
Easiest way to describe this headset is extreme bass. Like for anyone who loves bass this headset is the best one i’ve used in terms of bass it is amazing. The feeling when my ears are shaking for me is just the bestthe headset is great for gaming and even listening to music. I’ve used the headset for 3 months now and i’m very pleased with them. Even though these are from a gaming brand i would choose them over a pair of sony, beats or even bose headphones for music. I owned a pair of bose headphones not too long ago and these wipe the floor with them and they were £89. 99they are very comfortable to wear for a couple hours at a time for me then start to get uncomfortable. The headset isn’t that heavy and the ear cups are very soft but after using them for a gaming session around 5/6 hours long around the 4 hour mark they started to get uncomfortable and i had to take them off for a few minuets. The only problem i had with them was the comfort after a few hours and is quite a bit of of noise leakage when on max volume.
I spent a good while looking for a set of headphones that would provide great sound with a good build for a affordable budget. I bought these and i can honestly wholeheartedly say they are amazing. The sound is perfect, the product is strong, well made and the ear pads are soft. Some headphones fit awkwardly on my head even with adjusting, these are perfect and i will be recommending them to everyone. I am a gamer, i listen to music and i skype call daily and these have improved my experience massively. I am very happy and very proud to own a pair. The packaging was of great quality and sizeable for storage if needed, it includes an extension cable which is a lovely addition as the typical cables aren’t always long enough. All round great product which i am yet to find a fault.
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.
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 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.
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 :).
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 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.
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.
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.
Arrived extremely quickly in a good secure packaging. These headphones are lovely quality. Available in a range of colours, we bought the neon blue. My daughter is absolutely delighted with them. They are nice and solid (not flimsy) without being too heavy. Extremely comfortable on the ears with plenty of padding. They have a completely retractable mic which is easily accessible during use. The sound quality is also superb.
