Razer Kraken X gaming headset
This multiplatform gaming headset is built with superior comfort, extended durability and crystal clear sound.
Engineered to be extremely light at just 8.8 ounces, experience superior audio as you game for hours without being weighed down by your headset.

The cardioid pickup pattern records sound from a tighter angle. It ensures your voice is heard clearly when you speak and rejects noise from the sides and back of your mic.

The oval design with leatherette creates a comfortable fit and plush feel. An adjustable headband slider provides greater flexibility while being durable to twisting and bending over time.

Razer Kraken X Wired Stereo Gaming Headset for PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Mobile Devices
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.
Very comfortable, bought them for my first gaming set up, and there are better options always. But to start with and buying something with no regrets, these are good headphones. Only downside is how the earmuffs don’t colapse in to make them slightly more portable.
I've had this headset for a little over a year now. It has mostly performed as expected in this price range. I like that it has a mute button behind the left ear. However, my mute button gets stuck regularly since I first got the headset. Today, the headset fell off of my desk onto carpet and the head band cracked. It's pretty much useless at this point as the fit is no longer snug. My recommendation would be to look elsewhere for an inexpensive gaming headset.

Razer Kraken X review: A no-frills take on a headset that had few frills to begin with
The 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.Full Review
