My thoughts on the Kraken: Is it worth the hype?
I can confirm that this headset DOES live up to the hype and it's not just a brand that ships out crappy equipment for high prices. I can't say the same for some of their other headsets, which have terrible reviews. However, this headset is comfy and functional. Especially Amazon sells it for less than their MSRP, it's a steal.
-Their earmuff cooling technology actual feels legit...
-The top of the headset doesn't crack your skull
-The mic is retractable, which I LOVE
-The packaging gives a great first impression
-Includes an extension cable with dedicated mic and audio jack, a nice touch for large desks like mine
-Can wear easily for hours on end
-The lower volume range with the volume dial, located on the audio cable, absoluley sucks. Not sure if this is just my unit, but as you use the integrated volume dial to go from high to low volume, you'll notice the balance between left and right just randomly shifts. This is surely annoying while gaming to adjust the volume. If you have this issue, I suggest turning the volume all the way to high, then use your keyboard to adjust the volume on the OS side, rather than the hardware side
-The mic is a little finicky with MacOS on my Hackintosh, not sure why but I'll keep working with it.
-The ears are a little bigger than I imagined, but I feel like this may end up saving my ears throughout its life.
-I wish the cable came with an integrated voice-chat/game volume balance feature, similar to Turtle Beach on Xbox. I understand the tournament edition includes this, but not sure if that is worth the $40 premium. A redesign of that stupid USB unit with the tournament edition would make this headset the best, hands down, headset on the market for $60-100.
Both pros and cons considered--I love this headset. Of course, it has some flaws, like all things in technology do. Over the next few generations of this headset, I'm sure Razer will introduce some killer features to dominate the gaming market. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a headset that's comfortable, functional, stylish, and inexpensive. With the features included in this headset, there's nothing better out there that $60-70 can buy.
As far as comfort, I definitely would give them 5 stars. They are very lightweight and "cool" in the sense that they don't start to feel warm after a while. No matter how many consecutive hours I use them, they are always totally comfortable and it never feels like my ears start to sweat or like i need to take them off for a break. I actually forget I'm even wearing headphones.
What I do hate is the volume control. It's a dial on the cable just like almost every other headphone, but the problem is it's a very free-wheeling, almost spinning dial. It's not a "tight" dial where it doesn't move unless you actually put your fingers on it and turn it up or down, or the type where it makes a little click as you turn it up or down a notch. Consequently, everytime you move (eg change positions or reach for a drink of water), it rubs against your clothes and the volume turns up or down. You can't just set the volume and forget it. It seems like every 15-30 minutes I have to check to make sure it's still at the volume I want. Eventually you get used to the constant checking, but they definitely could have done a better job designing it. It makes no sense to me. I've used many different types of headphones (for music, etc) that have a similar volume controls but none where the slightest touch changes the volume.
I don't use the microphone so I have no opinion on that. I can say that it retracts nicely into the headphones so that you don't even know it's there.
If the headphones weren't so comfortable and if I wasn't already a fan of Razer products, I'd definitely drop my rating down to three stars due to the volume control issues, might have even returned them. As a matter of fact, after reading my own review, I think I should contact them to find out whether this is really the way they intended it to work or whether I got a defective pair.

Purchased this for my Xbox and PS4 as it was supposed to be compatible with both. (several customer answers stated it was) but it has a USB plug not an audio jack.
Reviews said it came with an adapter but is apparently not accurate for the kitty version.
Does NOT work with an adapter (I tried).
Would suggest the seller keeps the diffent versions of this headset on separate listings so the questions and answers don't get muddled in together.
The moment the headset came to the home I was in love with it. The way it looks and the way razer has put so many details into it....like when adjusting headband I could see numbers which I don't think many headsets have ...it might be just unuseful but I could feel the effort the razer has put into it.
the mic quality is pretty good ... but it still has to improve a lot but it's way good for this budget.
I personally didn't feel the advertised cooling cushions but I used it at a stretch for 15 hours and never felt the weight of the headphone on my ears.
Finally when I was using Logitech g933 and while drinking water with the headset over my ears, the headset slips away but razer sticks pretty well...
if anyone is looking to buy nice headset with mic .....just go ahead ....worth every buck spent
The only thing I would want to see from razer is a limited edition panda version of the headset.
Please amazon put the item in a box just don’t send the item with a scan code on the package this is a expansive item that if no one is home it can be easily get stolen , thank goodness I was home for delivery.
Been trying to look for good gaming headphones for the sound , best so far are these most headphones tend to be way to loud even when you adjust the volume lower and not good HD sound just tremble , These headphones are really good. you can adjust from high to low and the clarity HD is really good. These are still great to listen to music and play rhythm games as well
The comfort is excellent, I was lucky enough to get theme when they are on sale :)
UPDATE: I finally after many attempts with their support was able to get the code for the surround sound software. The headset is noticeably better and is a much more enjoyable experience overall. The retractable mic is also a nice option so that it doesn't get in the way when I'm not using it. The headsets are comfortable even after long gaming sessions. For the price they are good headsets. The surround sound software makes a difference and is a must in my opinion.
