Razer Kraken 7.1 Surround Sound USB Gaming Headset Video Review

They're OK


A month back they started buzzing and I thought they were breaking but it turned out to be my motherboard's audio jacks.

I've owned these things for 2 years and they haven't crapped out yet. Listening to music is fine and I can decently hear where people are in game thanks to the help of Razer's 3D audio software

I HAD to buy a separate $15 microphone for these because of the sound quality ; For the first year they were very uncomfortable (maybe they shaped my head) ; After about 5 hours of use they start to hurt ; To be honest there are headsets with better...

Great product quality/price

7.1 is just simply amazing, my voice is really clear, higly recommended

Can be a bit to tight for the ears when you play for long time

Looks kewl

Other than that, not too much. I wanted to try another brand apart from my Logitech G935's, and stumbled across these. The sound quality, in comparison, is meh, the bass is bad, and the inner earphones keep popping in/out ; Cheaply made, bad product is...

RAZER Kraken 7.1


Over all, its a good headset for the money and not a lot of cons to speak of. Would highly recommend if you're on a budget.

Awesome headset


The sound's very good, very comfortable and great microphone. Awesome product

My ears get hurt for long time using, some games and software can't hear i don't know why

Consumer review by:

Great Headset


Works with every game.

Works great! Everything sounded crystal clear. Crysis 3, battlefield 3, black ops 2, and Sniper v2 were the games I tried the head set on first and they never sounded so good

None so far

Flakey game support


It's a shame to because this is otherwise a VERY NICE headset

Extremely comfortable ; Lightweight ; Good sound quality ; Razer Synapse support ; Great aesthetics

Apparently many games do not support this headset.. like Crysis 3 for example has absolutely no audio. Sniper Elite V2 audio cut out after a second and never came back. Assassins Creed 3 works fine, however. The headset works in windows, and the...
