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.
