You do have to use the USB audio controller to get spatial audio by THX (where available). Otherwise , the 3.5mm jack directly inline is only going to give you stereo, so you wouldn't get 360 audio plugging this into your phone, for example. I don't think the spatial audio works on gaming consoles, just on your PC.
Again, as I haven't owned any other headsets, I don't know how standard the comfort might be, but these are super comfortable. The ear cushions I've tried out a bunch in stores don't fit my ears, and I don't think I have large ears. I wasn't sure about these since they're round (usually oval ear cushions fit better), but they completely cover my ears. I've tried previous Krakens in store that didn't fit me for some reason, so perhaps they changed something with the size of the cups here, not sure. I wear glasses, and the "clamp" of the headphone aren't too tight, so I don't feel the arms of my glasses pinching me. They are snug enough for desktop use, not enough for street use if you're gonna be dancing wearing these or headbanging as they will slide forward or backward with moderate head tilt.
The ear cushions do feel cool over extended use. I usually wear these for about 3-4 hours at night, and I don't collect any sweat on them. The leatherette is super smooth and feels luxurious.
They are not noise canceling or noise blocking. As stated above, they don't fit so tightly that you can't hear your environment when there's no audio, but with a little bit of audio, any noise in your environment is easily drowned out.
I like the convenient manual volume control on the cord so that I don't have to keep adjusting volume on my computer for different applications or different media. I'm not a gamer, so I usually leave my mic off (again, convenient integrated off switch), but it's nice for teleconferencing with work.
Nope, these don't light up like other Razer products.
You can adjust the sensitivity of noise from the mic in the Razer Synapse 3 Configuration Tool, so you can tune out the keyboard clicking if desired. You can set audio equalizer, adjust mic volume, sensitivity, normalize volume, reduce ambient noise, clarify voice, etc.

Feel mislead. Can't use it. $125 now nearly $200 if I get the adapter. Should have just went to walmart.
-Ear cushions are nice and soft and have a cooling gel inside that really does help
-Sound was good for Xbox One and was very easy to set up, just plug in the cable and good to go
-Mic is also pretty good on this headset especially when compared to other razer products
-Seems very durable and flexible, I dont see the band ever breaking under normal use
-Build quality is nice with a mix of plastic and aluminum
-Razer synapse is a big problem, have to manually activate THX for each app that you go into.
-THX for this headset is a joke, most of the time it doesnt even work. It will randomly turn off or just not turn on to begin with and in order to fix the issue you have to restart your PC. When it does work it makes the sound quality a lot worse, instead of being able to pinpoint a particular sound it just muffles everything together into one big mess
-Cannot use the THX adapter with Xbox as it is USB powered and Xbox does not support USB headsets, you have to use the normal 3.5mm cable that's built into the headset.
-Sound quality in general is just not the greatest, the bass is good but you dont get that clear mids and hi's that you can get with other headsets around this price
-Headband slightly starts to hurt head after an hour or so of use
The earpads are next level though. Nice and deep and made of soft lush material. Some of the best I've ever worn.
Headband is nice and soft.
Excited to see how they hold up.
