    Razer Kraken

    Posted

    Alright so I bought the Razer Kraken V2 and know this Im a huge Razer fan my gaming PC has the Deathadder keyboard and Razer Mouse so I had high hopes for these. Opening the box everything looked good, and first thing I noticed was tbe cord that connects to the PC its almost like a piece of string flexable almost weightless. Very nice, then i moved on to the headset its also lightweight looked good and he mic effortlessly slid in and out which i did and didnt like but thats my preference as a gamer. Plugging everything in I put the headphones on first thing I noticed it had 0 gripage on my head felt like if I moved my head to quick they would fly I didnt test this so Dont Try it at Home Kids. But with my preference I like a headphone that fits snug and comfortable which these didnt they felt loose and unsecured. Testing the mic quality out it sounded okay and even chatting with a friend he said it was an improvement over my old webcam mic but not by much mostly because the mic is closer to my mouth while the webcam was far away. And know that my webcam mic is almost 10 years old, and these headphones are pretty recent, so I wasnt pleased with that. Continuing to test it while gaming the audio was clear but it didnt do anything for background noises my old music headset I got 2-3 years ago for my Ipod did a better job at blocking sound and those cost me 30 bucks at the time. And I know there is a Surroundsound type of Kraken but if those are like these only better at block outside noise I dont think they are worth the money you pay. So my overall review? 3/5 stars and if I had the choice i would have put them at 2.5/5 are they nice for an amateur gamer who plays for fun and doesnt care? Yes perfect but if your a serious gamer like myself who uses all sounds to his advantage I wouldnt recommmend these to you not for 80 bucks. So.... Pros: Cord that connects is weightless flexable great quality (I have debated keeping the headset for the cord alone but 80 for a cord is too rich for my blood), and clear audio Cons: 0 Background noise protection, mic qaulity is average, headset is loose feeling.

    Not for Xbox

    Bought these for xbox and though they are great product, they may not be ideal for xbox. Sound was low, even with volume all the way up. no true surround sound, just a left and right, so you had to turn either right or left to pinpoint where the sound was coming from. Excellent at noise cancellation. This was by far the best part of the headphones. Looked and felt extremely high quality. Multiple people commented on how they thought these were $125+ headphones. Overall good design , but needed more for use with Xbox.

    This product sounds superb! Highs are crisp and clear, lows are deep and bass is nice! Mic has good sound quality, however many time others in the party say my mic picks up sound from the headphones despite having a nice seal over the ear. My assessment is the vibration travels down the mic boom and is translated into sound picked up by the mic. Otherwise great product, but during game parties sound has to be reduced greatly to compensate for mic pick-up.

    Comfortable but lacking

    The build quality and comfort of these headphones are spot on. The hideaway mic is also very nice. The only drawback to these are the sound quality, specifically if you’re using them for game sound and chat on console. I couldn’t get a good balance between the lows and highs and there is no program (that I know of) to tweak the audio profile. I’m one person with one opinion so the next person may like these... I would suggest getting them and trying them out.

    These headphones are alright. They have decent sound quality and a usable mic. There are better options though. I like that Razer made it with more metal instead of all plastic like it was before, but that's really the only improvement. At this price point, I'd have to say go with the HyperX Cloud headsets.

    3/5 Great audio nice and crisp. Build was excellent. Only problem was with the mic. Friends could hear clearly what was playing through my headset. Will be returning because this is a deal breaker for me.

    I used to have the razer kraken 7.1 v2, but they broke and when i went to get a replacement, they did not have the same so i went with these. Not as good, but they get the job done.

    This is one of the few USB plug-in computer headphone sets most an hour audio and for some reason they seem to break a lot I have bought three in the past year-and-a-half

    I like them but the sound quality is a bit muffled. Compared to other products at the same price the sound should be better.

    Good built quality, but very low and thin sound. Returned them and got Plantronics Rig 500 pro.

    Works well and quality is good. However, it does not get that loud and I expected the sides to light up.

    I guess for the price they are just ok, Id recommend going for something with 7.1 dolby sorround.
