Frequently Asked QuestionsWhat is active mic noise-cancellation?
The Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 uses a secondary microphone to record ambient noise, which is then supressed via a complex algorithm, so only the speaker’s voice can be heard clearly through noisy environments.Does this mean that all noise in the background is cancelled out?
Active noise-cancelling seeks to cancel as much noise as possible, but not all noise can be cancelled out. We are continuing to improve the technology to give you the best possible communication capability.Does the Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 work with the PS4?
The Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 can be connected to the PS4 through the USB port, and outputs stereo sound.

My first criteria for a headset is comfort. I would give these a solid 9/10. Why do I take a point off? It can get a bit hot if I wear them too long (see above, 8 hr gaming sessions). However, that notwistanding, this is supremely comfortable. It looks bulky but it feels extremely light. However, that lightness doesn't seem to come at the cost of durability either, which makes this stellar in my opinion. I don't think the ear cushions are memory foam, but they are some sort of soft absorbent substance and they are quite thick so it's really like a giant pillow around my ears.
My second criteria is sound. I want to begin by saying I am an audiophile. Music is a huge part of my life from socializing to being a coping mechanism. I don't have too many headsets, but I have MANY headphones from Skullcandy to Sony to Bose just to name a few. So when it comes to audio I can have somewhat high standards. I would give this a good 8/10 here. When playing video games, there is absolutely no issue, in fact, I think as far as games alone go this is a solid 10/10. The surround sound is great too, which I didn't think I would say. Surround Sound technology sure has come a long way. Movies too are generally fine to watch with this. However, with music, I can get really nitpicky and that's where the loss of a few points come in. But this is from the perspective of an audiophile with headphones ranging into the $300+ price ranges. For the price range that this is though, not to mention being a GAMING HEADSET, this is a great value; value being defined as the price in relation to the quality and anyone that isn't an audiophile should have absolutely NO problem with the sound quality.
The other half of sound quality is the microphone. All I can say for microphone is 10/10. It picks my voice up great, it has noise cancelling technology included for other noises such as my (very traditional) asian parents yelling the next room over or barking dogs, or in my opinion most importantly, clicky keyboards and mice clicking. This headset's noise cancelling technology is superb, and it's built in (no having to pay an extra $20 for the noise cancelling mic, looking at you turtle beach elite pro).
Finally, there is the design. These are big, and since I am an audiophile whose life generally revolves around music, I LOVE having these. In terms of appearance, they remind me strongly of studio-grade headphones because of the bulky design of the ear cushions and noise cancellation. But conversely, those that aren't looking to walk around with bulky headphones for that musical fashion statement might not like these for the same reason I love them. That's down to personal preference. Another + to the design is the mic retracts almost all the way in so there's no obnoxious microphone sticking out or standing anywhere. There is chroma on these which of course is one of the cornerstones for modern Razer peripherals, however, it is VERY limited. For me this is sort of a con, because I expected much more from the Kraken 2.0 in terms of chroma since Razer is currently one of the LED kings alongside Corsair. So it is disappointing the chroma on these is limited to just the logo when even simple $30 or $40 dollar headsets integrate the RGB style much more effectively such as the GAMDIAS Hebe M1. Bonus design fact: the Kraken v2 are Pewdiepie's current headset (green Kraken V2, though mine is the Black 7.1) so take that as you will. Me personally, I love Pewdiepie, and he looks really cool wearing them, so I am happy to own a similar pair just in a different style.
- VERY comfortable
- Seemingly Durable (will keep updated on this if anything goes wrong)
- Stellar Sound Quality
- Actually good simulated surround sound; useful for gameplay
- OUTSTANDING Microphone
- Bulky studio-headphone style/fashion statement
- Remains lightweight for comfort despite appearing bulky
- Easily connects to my PS4 as well. It has a long wire as well so I'm not forced to sit 2 inches away from my TV.
- Very limited Chroma support
- Wire isn't detachable/replaceable
- USB connection (not really a con, but you will have to buy a splitter if you plan on using it in other objects like a 3.5mm music player)
- Slight loss of audio when it comes to music (noticeable only to audiophiles with high-end headphones for normal music listening)
- Note: I have a thin head. I am a VERY slender-framed Asian. You know the type. Eats a whole pizza, no exercise, never gains a pound. That type. So it is VERY comfortable on me. But that being said, I also don't push/stress it and I don't know how larger heads might impact durability in comparison to myself.
Also others around you can't hear you when you wear it from what I can tell. The cups around the ears work great in that regard.
My only deduction comes from the cord length. It is too small. It is braided cord and sturdy, but just too short. Had to get an extension cord. If you have a USB cord coming off your keyboard or monitor to plug it into you are fine, but if you are routing it around or near your monitor to get to the tower, you won't have the length you need.
Could care less about the lights, they work but honestly never take the time to notice while wearing them. No stars added or taken away. I just turn them off in software.
