RAZER Kraken Pro Circumaural Analog Gaming Headset - Black Reviews

Positive Reviews


Great Gaming Headset


Pros: Sound quality and razer surround sound engine

Cons: occasional discomfort

Wonderful headset. Very underrated because razer gets a lot of hate for being mainstream

Great for gaming, listening to music isn't "bad" but not "great."


Pros: Extremely comfortable, work with ps4, sound quality is great for gaming. Mic is decent.

Cons: The included splitter (mic/audio) cable for laptops is garbage, opening for ear cups could be a little bigger

I've had these headphones for several months now and I wear them every day for hours on end. 7+ hours per day usually. The only time they get uncomfortable is if I just throw them on my head and don't position them properly. I had to purchase a new splitter cable for them so i could use the mic with my laptop (I bought a splitter from sound blaster). They perform great and none of the sounds are overwhelming. The mic is also decent, some could say that it could be improved but it performs good.

Negative Reviews


Not the sound an audiophile would love


Pros: Low Price (At least in this area), Really good microphone, Punchy Bass (Might even be considered a con)

Cons: Uncomfortable after a few weeks (Top of head hurts), Completely made out of plastic

Remember: "Stay away from Razer". Razer headphones are just meant to be "fun" for a certain amount of time. After a few weeks they either break or become really uncomfortable. The sound is overall good but they are really overpriced like any other Razer headphones. Although they are just headphones for the "bragging use". Razer should know one thing - Overpricing the product doesn't make it better.

Incarcerate the Kraken!


Pros: Beating

Cons: Everything else

I stick to the opinion that people should write reviews only after some time spent with a merchandise. But after trying these out at a store, I came to conclusion right away because my crap-o-meter went off the charts in a blink of an eye. Imagine a $1 generic OEM chinese earpiece. Add some strong ear-beating to it (can't use the word "bass" because it would be offensive to the latter). And here you are! Razer Kraken in the flesh!

Ehh... It's fine... ¯\_ツ_/¯


Pros: Sturdy build, looks fashionable (if you're into that thing), average sound, good mic, adaptable functionality, surround

Cons: Bass is muffled and many times unclear, hard cups (could be fixed overtime simply by wearing), disappointing plastic quality

The Razer Kraken Pro is a gaming headset created by Razer and bears a cool product name with a CAD$110 price tag. Mine comes in green unlike the picture above however they're all the same so don't freak out. Anyways.   Build and looks: The Kraken is build with cheap plastics and (fake?) cheap leather. The construction is sturdy, which is expected. However the plastics and leathery covers are cheap looking and feeling. any CAD$60 headphones from HMV (like Skullcandy and Urbanears) could beat it any day. The headset does have a tight clamp and large cups, which creates a good lever of noise cancellation. But then I digress, since the cups are very hard at the same time, which cause...

For gaming it's good, but for music is pretty meh


Pros: TONS of Bass, Comfortable for long hours, Looks pretty good

Cons: no mids, no highs

I bought these headphones in hoping that they will do good for gaming and hopefully, for music. They delivered exactly what i wanted for, a decent gaming headset. But for music, I don't even want to touch these.   Design & Comfort: The headset looks stylish, the headband is retractable and you can fold it. It's pretty portable so you can bring it anywhere if you will be wearing these outside, you won't look like a crazy person. It's really com   Sound/Audio Quality: Yes, I already know it's from Razer. Yes, I already know that it has tons of bass with no mids and highs. For gaming, these headphones are surprisingly good, Explosion sounded awesome in Battlefield 4, and...
