Looks can deceive.

 

This is yet another product that costs more because of the brand. I have never purchased a Razer product that i was completely satisfied with, there is always at least one lingering issue that makes using it, a much less enjoyable experience. You are...

First off, i am an owner of this headset, I just happened to buy it on another unnamed website. i value the New Egg community and that is why i am writing a review here, and not there ; This headset look BEAUTIFUL, probably one of the best looking...

Despite what the product is called, the audio is NOWHERE NEAR 7.1 surround. sure its surround, but it sounds very muffled, I am guessing it is a lack of treble or the vacuum created by the ear cups. That brings me to another point, the ear cups are...

RAZER Kraken 7.1

 

I would say buy then and recommend it to friends. Worth even buying it brand new.

I bought this headset for 40$ it came as if it was brand spanking new. It's very comfortable. It shoots out sounds so if you're in a loud house bye bye noise. :D Wire is rope like so it doesn't matter if it bends some. The might adjustable. Sounds is...

No cons, I've had this things for almost a year now and it still works like brand new

Good card, Great value, better than Xfired 270Xs.

 

This is a nice gaming headset, but it's not a headset for everybody. If comfort is not a problem for you, then I definitely recommend you get this headset. Otherwise, I would save your money for a better headset.

Sound quality is pretty good (compared to my last pair of headphones, some generic $20 headphones) ; Mic sounds really clear ; Headset is adjustable to fit to your liking ; Headset folds to make storage or traveling easier ; Headset has a really nice...

These things are very uncomfortable (at least for me). I have plastic-framed glasses, and after having these headphones on for about an hour, it feels like pins and needles, and I just end up putting them around my neck. This might not be a problem for...

My Review on the Razer Kraken 7.1

 

None

Great Sound Quality ; Very Clear Mic

They are not comfortable. You should go for the Razer Carcharias. These headset start hurting my ears after a hour. I had the Steelseries Siberia v2 before and were SO much comfortable

Good Value

 

Couldn't tell the difference between this refurbished unit vs. brand new ; Excellent price ; Great sound/mic quality and performance

It seems like no matter how I adjust it, after a few hours of use, my ears become a little sore from wearing the headset

Don't buy refurbished ?

 

Just get a new one. I thought since it's razer refurbished i wouldn't have any problems boy was i wrong

It was on sale so i saved around $10 ; compared to the new one

First one i got didn't function properly so i replaced it ; next one starting to not function correctly (recently) ; it's past 30 days or ; whatever the returnable date is ; Can't replace it... so wasted money ; sadness
