What really makes it though is the HyperSense, and I can definitely say that its worth the extra price. I've never experienced anything like it on headphones. It's akin to your chair in the movie theater shaking from the ultra loud bass, except here it doesn't hurt your hearing and is very unobtrusive. I tried turning up the bass on my previous headphones, but its just not the same, I don't think I could go back.
The THX spatial surround is great in games, its definitely better than the built in windows sonic virtual surround or the windows dolby app atmos surround, and far better than the HyperX 7.1 virtual surround dongle. As with any virtual surround solution though, you'll want it off for anything other than gaming. You can try it in movies, it definitely does give everything a more spaced out sound, but it messed with the audio quality too much for me to use it. For gaming though, definitely keep it on. Tried it in Apex Legends, Black Ops 4, Devil May Cry 5, Ace Combat 7, Metro Exodus, and a few other games. You'll also want to configure it in the settings to have the right position for your ears. There is a slight degradation in sound quality as with any virtual surround, but it really does wonders for the positional audio, especially in battle royale type games. The chat and game dial is also something I never thought I'd use, but I'll be honest, once its there its so much easier than manually adjusting voice and game volume through windows. One of the best things I never knew I needed.
The mic is the biggest detriment in this package, and that combined with the necessary EQ tuning to get good sound is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5 for the sound. It is straight up garbage, my friends said it sounds like I'm underwater, and I can hear it too when I listen to it through windows. It's usable, but not up to par for a $200 headset, especially when the Hyper X Cloud 2s have an AMAZING mic for under $100. No amount of changing the mic settings fixed this. I've read online that this is mainly a software issue with the Razer software and windows, and that would make sense as the mic sounds pretty good when listening to it just through the Razer software using sidetone and not windows, so hopefully it will be fixed eventually. The mic itself picks up sound well, and is very sleek looking, especially when stored in the headset.
Build quality and battery seem good. It is the most comfortable headset I've had, and that's saying alot since I had the Cloud 2s. The memory foam on the ears is insanely comfortable, and the cooling gel does a good job of keeping yours cool for longer than usual, I'd say about 45 minutes to an hour for me before they really started heating up, as opposed to just 10 or 15 mins on my other headsets. The ear cups are also huge, nice, and deep. They completely cover my big monkey ears and the inside of the cups don't touch my ears. The self adjusting band is a godsend, and the clamping force is just right for me. You kind of have to find the sweet spot on your head so it doesn't just fall off when you walk around, but once you've got it, as long as you don't straight up head bang, they'll stay on pretty good. Battery lasts around 11 hours with everything off, and that time shortens as you use HyperSense and increase the brightness on the decals (which I just turn off cause I don't even get to see it anyway). As for the material, its a combination of metal and this very flexible, rubbery feeling hard plastic. Never really felt anything like it, but good and sturdy. The way the usb dongle clicks into the headset for easy storage is really convenient too.
As for the software, I read it had some issues at launch, but I haven't had any issues with it while using it except that if you are constantly messing with the "enhancement" settings the audio quality will become really bad, easy fix is to toggle the THX surround, and you won't have this issue at all once you're setting are dialed in cause you wont be messing with it. You can also adjust the strength of the haptics.
Overall, definitely recommend over any other headset I've owned thanks to the ridiculous experience and immersion it gives if you're willing to mess with the sound settings a bit and don't mind having a fuzzy sounding mic.
Here are my sound settings:
First off, make sure you follow the included instructions to properly setup the game and voice chat feature. I would change one thing from the manual though. Where it says make windows volume max and adjust the volume through the headset, I would flip that because when I set windows to max it occasionally made all my sound crackle at louder volumes for some reason. When I had the headset on max volume and adjusted volume through windows, I didn't have that problem. Also make sure your bitrate and channel are set for the highest setting on both inputs in the windows sound settings and for the mic. Now for my settings:
THX Spatial Audio: Surround Sound for games, Stereo for everything else
Enhancement: All off, except for Haptic Intensity set to 70 (the other enhancements just put filters on the sound and distort it, as is usually the case with these things)
Make sure you have any other windows spatial sound options turned off, and any other software providing EQ settings or enhancements (like the ones through windows) turned off if you had them on.
31 Hz: +4
63 Hz: +4
125 Hz: +7
250 Hz: 0
500 Hz: -2
1 Khz: -3
2 Khz: +2
4 Khz: -3
8 Khz: +6
16 Khz: +7
This makes a pretty warm, bassy sound with a decent bit of treble, how I like it
Volume Normalization: 50
Everything else off cause it makes your voice sound more muddy
Again, once you've finished messing with your sound setting, go toggle the THX Spatial setting off and on again (or on and off if you aren't using it) to make sure you don't have that weird low quality sound bug, and then you're all set. You can find other EQ settings on razer's reddit and forums if you don't like how mine sounds.
UPDATE 3/16/2019: So I've found that if you use the headset through the wired mode, the sound quality on the headphones themselves is the same, but the mic sounds amazing, much better than any of the past headset microphones I've had. My friends online confirmed so too. This leads me even more to think that the problem is something so do with the Razer Synapse software and how it communicates with windows. I contacted razer support about it and we tried some trouble shooting, uninstalling and reinstalling audio drivers, the synapse software, etc. None of it helped and they offered to do a full replacement for me, so they have good customer service at least, but I think I'll keep the headset I have now because lots of other people have this problem so I really don't think its a headset malfunction so much as their bad software messing stuff up. My review remains unchanged.
Not super heavy
Nice metal frame so they don't break over time
Lights up with Chroma to look fancy with other Razer products
Sound better once the THX Spatial Sound is turned off
Sound Normalization seems to be always on, which gets annoying
Complaints from party members that mic didn't sound that great for the very very short duration of time that they were actually able to hear me due to an issue the Nari's (both of them) have.
Apparently, the headset has no way of hard resetting the presets that are saved to it, so once one goes and changes ANY settings for the headset while using it wirelessly (which is the point of being wireless) THE MIC STOPS WORKING. Turning them off and on, uninstalling hardware for all peripherals ( I have a razer keyboard, mouse and got the stand with the headset) and redoing everything one at a time and in the end, still had the same result. Damn shame. Per the specs, everything was pointing towards a SOLID headset. Instead, I got wireless headphones or use with a wire, which defeats the purpose of them being wireless. VERY Disappointed. Returned both headset and stand. Too late for the mouse and keyboard.
I got it and set it all up...charge...configure...etc...Started up a movie to test out the sound and that's where my experience went down hill.
The sound was just okay. I mean, there are equalizer presets for the headset and can also customize it too. I couldn't find a good combo to get the quality out of the Nari I got from the Kraken(turning into a kraken hype post)…Messed around with the settings for a while and opened up a game. Things were just off with just about everything...I'm talking games like Black Ops 4 or Battlefield 5 where it really helps to know which side footsteps or gunfire is coming from. So same thing with adjusting settings back and forth. Again, with the Kraken(hype) I hadn't had that problem at all...surround sound was great.
Now comes the super ultra sensitive mic...picked up everything. I had noise cancellation..this, that, and the other. I tried to auto adjust the sensitivity...manually tune it...nothing seemed to help it. Either it was too sensitive or it didn't pick up anything at all...I use Discord as my voip. Other people told me the mic made sound like I have a nasal voice. Once again, I mess with the settings. Try different usb ports for the BT receiver. Turn things on and off like the razer synapse settings and the discord settings for the mic options. Nothing seemed to work as well as the KRAKEN!!! Maybe I should have bought another Kraken...eh...
So after messing around with it for a couple weeks...trial and error(mostly error)...I sent it back. Lost some money on it but the quality just wasn't there for me.
I ended up going with a competitor that has their wireless headset priced the same as the Nari. Won't name names or anything...*cough*...however, the mic is great...the sound is great...I'm just overall happier with it.
One good thing about the Nari I really liked. It was light and extremely comfortable. I wear glasses and I have an above normal sized head. 5 stars on that part.

Another issue is that every single day I've had to deal with between 20-30 random disconnects that last typically 5 seconds each but enough for me to miss what I was listening to on youtube or discord and I have to rewind or ask someone to repeat themselves... once or twice is bearable but not the amount of times I've been experiencing it is too damn much.
Lastly, battery life. Razer advertises 10-14 hrs or 7 days with 2 hrs daily usage. I've never had a problem here unless it's during the weekends and I'm on my desktop all day. But then you can just plug in the charger and use it as normal (without the haptic feedback). Although I have noticed that turning off the haptic feedback grants you A LOT more battery life. Never had it die on me but I always charge my headphones overnight so I don't know how much longer.
On the comfort side... I would give this a 7/5 if I could. It's so damn comfortable to wear and the cushions fit just right.
These are my thoughts. I love Razer but I can't justify spending $320 on these headphones.
My biggest gripe with the product is their advertised "Hidden indented channels eliminate pressure from glasses for eyewear relief." Upon receiving the item, I inspected for such feature, but was unable to identify it. So I emailed support and received the following response: "The features you've mentioned are not yet present with our Nari models".
After plenty of research, I settled on the Razer Nari Ultimates for Xbox One.
I never really understood why people would pay over $200 for a gaming headset. With these Razers, I now know. I received them in the mail this morning from Amazon and was instantly blown away by the haptics and sound quality.
Build quality is top notch. The aluminum frame feels solid, the stretchy green headband has taken me to new levels of comfort. The cooling gel on the ear cups is a nice touch. I wore these for just over two hours today and, with my other headset, by this time my ears would be throbbing from pressure on my glasses. With the Nari Ultimate, that problem has become a thing of the past. Incredibly comfortable. My kids were off school today and I couldn't hear them at all with these on. These have great isolation from outside noise.
I've read complaints about the mic being too quiet but this isn't an issue here. The people I've chatted with have all said my voice is clean and clear. Incoming voice sounds great.
Haptics. Okay. This little gimmick was the main reason why I decided to pull the trigger on these bad boys and I am not disappointed. It really brings immersion to a new level. Approaching a running truck in the game I was playing had the haptics slowly getting more intense as I got closer to the truck. I can't wait to experience more with this headset.
RAZER knocked it out of the park with this one. The best headset I've ever owned.
Overall a 5/5 and a really unique product!
I see some other comments talking about the mic. I was able to solve these issues by doing the following:
1. Increasing mic sensitivity to near-max in razer synapse
2. increasing mic volume to max in razer synapse
3. Using "default" input device in discord instead of selecting the headset mic specifically.
Once I did the above I was able to chat on discord without issue.
