    No dont do it, go get turtles

    Mic is to short, also low quality. You have to turn mic monitoring up all the way to hear yourself which creates buzzing sound. No wind sock so you here wind feedback. Headphones work good though. Returning

    Amazing product but color is off

    Great headset, amazing sound quality, perfect for what I need. My biggest issue is the color. The color in the pictures look more like a rose gold, but in person it’s almost hot pink.

    Don’t hesitate, BUY THEM!

    These headphones are amazing. They’re super cute, girly, and cancel out all background noise. My husband keeps trying to talk to me while I have them on and I can’t hear a word he is saying, haha. If you’re super girly or just want to make your gaming/computer station girly, I suggest getting the kitten ears that attach to the top of the headphones. I love these headphones and will be buying all the matching Razer products 😀

    Comfort and great audio

    My last pair of headphones were a pair of Hyper X cloud 2’s. The Hyper X Cloud 2’s were a great, comfortable headset don’t get me wrong. The problem I had was that the cord split and the mic stopped working. I can honestly say that the 2019 Razer Kraken is not only 20.00 cheaper than my old set, they’re also more comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised that they even sounded better. I like the fact that the mic is retractable, and there is a volume adjuster on the cord. For me, this headset is a no-brainer, best for the buck buy.

    poor quality,short lifetime only 2 months

    Not durable. The cord came apart from the audio adjuster. The saddest part is that happens only two months after it was purchased, and no force was applied. Definitely, I will not purchase and I do not recommend the item.

    Great but the volume dial is poorly designed

    I use these with a PS4 and am happy with them, though I must confess these are the only “gaming” headphones I’ve ever used, so I really have no idea whether they are better or worse than the competition. I do have a Razer Blade Pro laptop which is the best laptop I’ve ever owned (including MacBook Pros) and therefore chose these almost exclusively based on my very positive past experience with Razer products.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.

    Comfortable, functional, stylish, and inexpensive.

    I decided to get this Kraken headset after getting really tired of using a crappy old turtle beach from my previous Xbox for my PC/Hackintosh. They felt like they cracked the top of my skull open after 2-3hrs of use and my ears were sore. I also wanted a headset with a mic integrated for Zoom and for gaming, rather than using a headset AND the Blue Snowball at the same time, even though the acoustics are amazing on the Snowball.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.Pros:-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 endCons:-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.Summary: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.

    Looking for a headset that’s less than $100? This is it.

    I’m in love with this headset. There is absolutely nothing I have against this headset in it’s use so far and I would highly recommend it. I’ve been recording myself doing test runs of certain games and the clarity of sound is top notch for something in the $$ price point. The glasses hooks are well placed and I love that the metal frame COVERS the “earmuffs”. While it limits the ear pad mobility, I’m confident that these will last way long than my last Razers. They’re 1,000x more comfortable as well.The length of the cord is also a plus. It says it’s about 5 feet, but it feels much longer and has a piece that disconnects for usb adapter, volume control, and is covered in tough nylon. The only downside for that is the volume control meshes with the audio output, and will sometime cut sound from one ear or the other.I haven’t had a chance to check the audio of my recordings, so I cannot vouch for the mic itself yet, but my friends have no problem hearing me. I do really appreciate that it is retractable and flexible. I’ll give an update when I look into my recordings for that.Overall, awesome headset for the price. I paid more to get a pink one and I’m even not mad about it.

    Super cute and great quality!

    My first headset and i love it! got the attachable kitty ears to go with it. Had some problems at first figuring out some audio issues cuz at first only the left side was working but i think it was a combination of drivers and making sure all my settings were right and make sure to plug it in the back. Had them for a few months now and still holding up well! Not the most comfortable but overall great quality! Would recommend ^^
