All in all, it's a good headset especially for being refurbished. If you're looking for a cheap headset that sounds great and has a good mic, this is the one, though take the cons into consideration. Oh, and one more con; the price lowered by $10 a few...

Sounds great! Good hard-bass and treble balance. Believable surround sound ; Locks out sound from the outside world fairly well, but not too much ; Cord is overwhelmingly long and annoying, so less tangling. It also feels like cloth ; Gold plated USB ;...

Razer Synapse 2.0 must be installed for it to work. (but it doesn't have to be running in order for it to work, so you can close it.) ; You can't slightly hear yourself in the headset when talking like most mics do. Not a big deal but it would help...

Great whilst it lasted.

 

Overall I'm very disappointed in this headset, I have a complete razer set up and have mostly sided with razer when it comes to peripherals. Now in the future I will be purchasing other headsets that offer much more for a similar price. I'm not...

Sound quality is great, it's not superb, but its sound is better than other $50-$100 headsets that I've tested ; It's aesthetically pleasing if you're into the razer look

After a year of average use, and EXTREMELY careful handling, this headset is a disappointment ; The mic is average quality, with poor noise cancelling qualities behind it ; After about a year of average use, and as said above with superior care, the...

Great Headset!!

 

This was a fantastic deal for a refurbished item, Comes with everything you need.

Although refurbished, this looked brand new, and worked great. I love to listen to music and play battlefield, and the surround and bass is awesome. This headset is without a doubt sturdy, with a gold plated usb, and braided cord

Synapse 2.0 is so stupid, too bad its required to make this headset work. Sometimes if you move the cable creates this noise when your clothes rub on it. Another thing is when you press the mic mute button, it makes a very noticeable click to those...

UNLEASH THE KRAKEN

 

I plan to get the chroma keyboard, and now that I've felt this. I will definitely be following suit with the chroma Kraken. Now if only I had the money.... TnT

Amazing feel. Impeccable design. The feeling that at any moment I could die and be totally okay with it. All this and more for the low low price of a Kraken from Razer... I'm so happy I could cry. My very first hardcore piece of gaming peripheral and...

It took a whole 4 days to get here because of labor day. OUTRAGE! Nah I'm just kidding but they DID ask

RAZER Kraken 7.1

 

Easy to use and easy to set up. Looks amazing with the neon logo. Mic is easily retractable so it will never get in the way if not needed. Probably one of the best looking headset to date. Nice thick durable wire so it will least likely to tear or rip

The wiring when rubbing or moving can make a lot of noise in the left ear piece when you do not have sound on. When using for a long time your ear does get a little hot

Great headphones!

 

The headset is fantastic. I have no regrets after purchasing. I would definitely recommend to friends, however there are just those few adjustments that would make this perfect.

Great bass (after enhancing with Razer Synapse software) ; USB interface creates less echo when video conferencing (vs analog interface) ; LED lit logos on each side with led lit ring around mic ; Comfy and greatly reduce surrounding noise ; Surround...

NO INLINE VOLUME CONTROL -- This would be incredibly handy and many current headsets have this capacity. Razer has failed to acknowledge the need for this. I think this would be very nice to be able to quickly mute or adjust volume mid game in case...

Affordable gaming headset

 

As advertised: cheap and decent gaming headset.

A lot of people compliment my mic sound. Very loud

Have to manually adjust the sound when you listen to music. A minor inconvenience
