Very Comfortable, good sound quality, extremely clear mic.
Anthony & LydiaKaris Gaetano
They are lightweight but don't feel cheap and you can wear them for hours and not have any pain around your ears (at least on my head, which is rather large).
Leo
I have contacted Razer support to replace the product, but the last time I attempted to do this it took more than six months to get a reply.

I tried the Steelseries 7H, very comfy but too expensive.

I traded the 7H in for a Razer Tiamat 7.1. I thought surround sound would be bad ass but it didn't impress me. The ear cup of my Tiamat completely broke off after one gentle cord tug to the floor.
(I couldn't tell you how many times I slammed my X12's with no damage)

So the Tiamat was sent away and I saw this, the Razer Kracken. When I received it I was happy with the looks and comfort. After weeks of use I find this headset to be reliable and a pleasure to use. I also use skype quiet often, and the mic works just fine.

In my opinion the expensive headsets that are out today aren't worth your time. They might produce some great audio but that will break in no time. (I managed to break A40's & Tiamat 7.1)

I do wish I could use these on my Xbox for mic communication.

EDIT: Months later and I am STILL enjoying this headset! It has to be the most comfortable headset I have ever used. I have had no problems even after dropping it a few times. Virtually no wear and tear either! The Kracken never seems to get old for me. Every time I hop on the computer I enjoy throwing these bad boys on.

VOICE / MIC QUALITY: Clear, precise, never cut out or any interference.

SOUND QUALITY: Good clear sound with high and volume. Bass is abit strong which may be a plus for some people.

COMFORT: Like it is advertised it is one of the most comfortable headsets. Once you wear them you forget they are on. Went through a 5 hour session and felt no annoyance

DURABILITY: Only owned it for a week but so far seems pretty good. Mic is sturdy and I'm pretty sure it won't snap.

DESIGN AND FORM FACTOR: The design is amazing. I have the green version and it really looks beautiful. But it does stand out in public so it's really up to you.

Whether your playing it on the PC or want to try it on the xbox 360(http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004EZMGIQ/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00) this product is great! I love it very much seeing as I'm a gamer first person second! :) Very Comfortable, Great Sound, Durable.. what more can you ask for?

I upgraded from a pair of Turtle Beach x12's when I gave them to a friend who had crappy no-name headphones, so I needed something relatively cheap but good for the price. I'd heard things about this headset being comfortable and having a decent microphone, so here is what I can tell you from my own experience having these for about a month.\

DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY - The design, in my opinion, is pretty sweet. The Razer logo is cool as it is, so the decently sized logos on the earcups make the headphones look pretty beast. It's a little weird, but the earcups are actually circular, so people with bigger ears such as myself will either hate the cups or just get used to them over time. The headband is nothing to drool over, but if you wear this thing the wrong way the, headband will let you know by digging into your scalp and tell you to adjust the headset through pain. The earcups themselves are leatherette of some sort, and either memory foam or some other squishy foam are in the cups. The headset is mainly plastic construction, which usually means cheap, but Razer has done a nice job of keeping the headphones lightweight and sturdy. I accidentally sat on these once, and I weigh roughly 130 pounds, and there was no damage done whatsoever. I probably just got lucky, but they're pretty durable. Out of the box, the foam is pretty hard, so you'll have to wear these in before they get more tolerable. These also come in black, but I chose green because I prefer a bright headset that is easier to spot over the typical black that headphones tend to be.

MIC - The mic is decent for a headset that retails for $80 USD, and that's really it. It's decent.

Let me start of with this: I am a pretty hard core gamer. Most of my sessions last several hours, and even when I finish gaming I continue listening to music or watching movies. So the following has plenty of testing to back it up. This is the most comfortable piece of audio equipment that I have ever used. Now I haven't tried everything on the market, but between my own purchases and use of friends headsets, I've used my fair share. These are easily the most comfortable things I've ever put on my ears. More than once I've gotten up to get something and snagged the cord, because I couldn't even tell I was wearing them.

As for the audio, I was immensely impressed. I'm not an audiophile, but sound is still incredibly important in my gaming. The sound comes though very crisp and loud, sometimes a little too loud. The bass is quite powerful, so its recommended to turn it down if you don't want to get a headache. The headphones are also excellent at canceling outside sound, something I cannot say for other headsets I've worn.

The microphone is quite good. Very clear. I don't know how to rate it against other high quality mics, but this one absolutely gets the job done. Another cool feature is that the mic retracts back into the headset, something I didn't know about until today. I never needed it out anyway, so keeping it in is not a bad option if you don't want to damage it.

Now for the one thing. Durability.
The build of the headset is actually quite great. The headband shows no signs of wear or stress, even though its made out of plastic. The left cup of the first set I received went out (well, the sound dropped to nearly inaudible levels) so I sent it back for a replacement.
