    High quality product at a great price point

    This item was gifted to me by my girlfriend and was purchased at a deal around $50. Knowing Razor as one of the top tier companies for gaming products I expected a lot and these headphones don't disappoint. It's compatible with both my ps4 pro and my laptop and produces clear audio and both from the game and from the headphone's mic. The audio received is very responsive to whatever customization you have on your devices such as higher bass, tremble, etc. The wire on the headphones are made of durable nylon material, and contain an in-line mic that allows you to adjust the volume and turn on/off the mic without having to go to the sound settings of the device, which is very useful for uninterrupted play. The adjustable strap also provides flexibility in adapting from small head shapes to larger ones like mines. A few nit picky problems I have with these headphones are that they do not feel as comfortable after long hours of use. Although I understand it's unfair to compare the two, the comfort provided by these headphones is noticeably different from my Bose Quietcomfort 35's, but at a $220 difference I mean it should be right? In addition, the mic tends to be a little too sensitive sometimes, which can be adjusted by your devices. Lastly, the nylon wire does seem to have higher durability, but at the cost of adding friction and catching onto cloth-like surfaces from time to time. Overall, I am very happy with this product and will be using it for the years of gaming to come. If you want high quality gaming headphones that are compatible with multiple devices, produce clear audio and voice, and don't want to break the wallet, I'd say go for these.

    Great Wired Headset

    I have a Gold wireless headset for my PS4 and wanted a wired headset that I could use on my Xbox One and PS4. I thought I was getting the model up at this price since the product was in the wrong place, but I'm quite happy with the purchase anyway. I ended up removing the extender part of the cable, which not only made it a much more palpable length, it allowed the mic to work properly on the Xbox. I really like the retractable mic option, and it works well. My friends who are used to me on my Gold headset have all commented on how clear I sound now. If I have one complaint, it's that it's too easy to turn down the volume via the wheel control on the cord. A few times I've thought the set was malfunctioning, only to realize I'd turned down the volume accidentally.

    Months of owning

    I have had these headphones for a few months. I can say that they are still working as the 1st day I got it. If you are worried about prices and which headset to trust, I would definitely recommend this particular one. It is decently priced and does what they need to do. Surround sound and bass are amazing. I also own the Man-O-War headphone, but since getting wired Krakens I've been using only this. Yeah I love wireless because hey- WIRELESS, but I got tired of charging and always being connected to a charger. Krakens are definitely my go to. I even sleep with them on in bed sometimes. You will not regret its quality and durability. Coming from an honest reviewer

    My son loves all the Razer products, sometimes Corsair for keyboards but headphones he loves Razer he says these are great, and when you buy Best Buy's 2-year protection plan to go along with it, every time I've had an issue with them Best Buy just gives me a new pair and another two-year warranty usually for less than a few dollars to add that to your warranty definitely worth it to add that to anything you can only buy at Best Buy, that way you don't have to deal with the manufacture yourself ever Best Buy always handles it for you

    I purchased the headphones for my son. He started using it for ps4 gaming, and loved it from the moment he plugged it in to the controller. We game together often on t.v.'s in the same room, and we do this audio setup so that there is no battle for sound, my wife does not get upset with multiple games turned up, and so our sounds are isolated to each player. He also uses the headphones for switch and phone time, so what he is doing is less of a distraction to those around him.

    Very Comfortable

    I own a few mid-range headsets and this by far is the most comfortable I've ever bought. I've never had any complaints about the mic so I would assume that it works decent as well. As far as sound quality goes, I wouldn't recommend these if your main focus is music. For the price, you can find a pair of Sony headphones with much deeper bass, louder volume, and richer sound quality. However if you're going to be gaming for hours and want something that gets the job done well and doesn't leave you with a headache, these will do good!

    GREATEST headset I've ever owned hands down!

    I can't say a single thing bad about this headset! I am not one for writing reviews but I've never been so impressed with a headset in my life! I have had multiple brands astro, turtle beach, steelseries, and many more. This headset beats it on every level comfort 10/10, sound 10/10, user friendly, excellent mic and honestly just everything its amazing. I also purchased the wireless man o war version and honestly I was not impressed and returned it due to comfort problems. Pick this one you won't be disappointed

    Best PS4 Gaming Headset

    My grandson loves this headset! He started with the PS4 Sony Gold headset but had to return it because the other players couldn’t hear him. Then he got a Turtle Beach Stealth 700 but had to return it because he couldn’t hear the other players. Gave up on the wireless headsets and bought this Razer Kraken. He has never had any issues with it. So it’s definitely his favorite headset! Other players hear him and he hears the other players. PERFECT!!

    Comfortable with decent sound

    The ear cups are very plush and comfortable for continuous hours of gameplay or chatting. It has decent sound, but mids can be a little muffled and highs a little tinny at higher volumes. It's obviously not a highend audiophile headphone, but there's a lot of value for the price. I prefer these over the Logitech G633, but about the same as my old Corsair H2100. The mic pickup is good, but on a few occasions it had picked up the music I was listening to while I was on Discord.

    INCREDIBLE PC/CONSOLE GAMING HEADPHONES

    The comfort and sound became the immediate qualities that were apparent to me. I game on PC and Console so the adaptability between the two was just what I needed in this headphone product. The stretch and cushion made gaming for hour on end a breeze with no sore ears or discomfort. Half the time I don't know they're there, so lightweight and easy to adjust and wear. Over all an unbelievable product and great price for the quality and features that it comes with. Will be buying more Razer products in the future.

    My girlfriend's son told me about these. I was kind of skeptical because he is a teenager and he uses his for Xbox One and computers while I would be using mine for PS4. He was not wrong in his description to me. I have purchased pair after pair that I could not hear out of. These I can hear footsteps behind me, gunshots around me, all sorts of things that I can not hear in other headphones. They are truly great.

    I've been partial to another brand of gaming headsets for the last 8 years because the the wireless features. It seems the build quality has dropped since my first high end headset for that particular brand. The Razor - Kraken Pro has top of the line build quality, excellent sound for gaming, the green color is really cool. All the features help me over look the need of the direct line connection to the game controller. Over all I'm am very pleased with my Beat Buy purchase.

    Hands down the best headset I've ever owned. Amazing sound quality but the seller for me is how comfortable they are! As someone who wears glasses it's always been difficult to find a headset that doesnt cause my glasses to dig into my head. These are them! I cam marathon game with no issues! My only complaint is the in-line volume and mic controls aren't labeled so you can't tell if your mic is muted or not by looking at it.

    My family has purchased 2 pairs of these headsets. They are lightweight but durable. The sound quality is AMAZING. I am a streamer on Twitch and use these and have never had any complaints about audio quality. The only thing I do not like is the volume control. It is a wheel and can get turned down by rubbing against your clothes. I use one pair on my PC and one on my PS4. I liked them so much I bought my son a pair too.

    This headset is versatile because it fits the XBox, my cell and my computer. I have been though almost all of the headsets that Best Buy has to offer and this one has lasted me the longest because of it's versatility. It is so comfortable that I walk around the house with it on, pretending to talk to my friends, when I am not really, I just look really cool, plus I can wear my pajama's and talk to my friends without having to hold the headset or my phone.

    Pros: - comes with a splitter for mic and audio for pc use - register your product for free Razer Surround sound software to convert the headset to simulated 7.1 surround sound - quick and easy plug in for pc and console use - high clarity and deep bass Cons: - cable can be a little too long depending on distance from media device - puts a little too much pressure on the side of my head

    I was hesitant to buy this headset due to it being wired, and generally not offering a lot of features. Which is to be expected considering its price (versus most wireless headsets) but what you give up in wireless functionality and features, you gain in audio and build quality. These cans are so comfortable for long gaming sessions, and the sound is clear and balanced.

    I got this headset for use with my Xbox one. It was plug & play into the Xbox controller. Friends said they could hear me great and the sound quality was better than my previous set. I really liked that the ear cups go completely around my ear so there was no pain with long-term gaming. Note: The razer logo doesn't light up and is just a matte finish.

    I bought these headphones a couple of weeks ago and I've been using them a lot. I only have two words to describe the sound quality from these phones and this is "Simply Awesome". The bass and treble are right on the mark with my movies and all my games and I do have a lot of games on my PC. If your looking for a nice set of gaming headphones then look no further. The Kraken Pro V2 made by Razor is an excellent choice.
