I'm not really a review person but I feel you all should know about my experience with the Razen Headset. Let start with the pros,
Pros: Great sound
Extendable attachment cord
Cons: Material (the plastic has to be 3D printed, one small tap and they crack until the hed set is in parts)
I know that there is only one con but it is a major one. I had to but ducktape to hold t together. I can't adjust the headset for my head and it is just very uncomfortable now.

Cracking after 2 Months, Warranty Denied
Owned for 2 months when reviewed.
These headphones have fine sound and mic pickup. I like the longer cord and that they included a splitter since I have a PC with separate headphone and mic jacks.
However, after barely 2 months of ownership, the inner headband that connects to the ear is cracking on both sides. One side is cracked badly enough that I have to push that side completely down so that it doesn't get any worse.
I contacted Razer about this since I'm past the return policy for Best Buy and Razer denied the claim saying it's due to customer use and it wouldn't be fair to replace them because I didn't buy their RazerCare plan. Apparently I should have added that on because then they would cover these headphones.
I'll just keep using them until they fully break but at the rate it's going, that might be within a month, but never again with Razer.
Comfortable fit. Easy mic placement. Probably has greater dynamic range than I was able to achieve given the device I was connected to. Razer has a downloadable free upgrade to surround sound that I have not yet used.

Razer Kraken X Review: A Solid $50 Gaming HeadsetThe Kraken X is hardly perfect, due to its unimpressive music performance and unremovable mic. But for $50, it's an extremely solid headset, providing good in-game sound and a comfortable fit for hours on end. Its design is attractive and much

Razer Kraken X review: A no-frills take on a headset that had few frills to begin withThe Razer Kraken X is a budget version of a headset that was already considered entry-level to begin with. It's comfortable enough and sounds good enough for its $50 price tag, but most people are probably better off with the normal Kraken models.
