Breaks Too Easily

Joseph J. Mclaughlin "JOEMC3", Amazon
25 July 2012
  • Summary: I've owned two pair of the Barracuda Headphones and both have broken the exact same way. The piece that holds the earphone to the headset is made of some type of metal. After about a year to two years of use, the metal fatigues and breaks.

Shotty Quality

J. Manning, Amazon

  • Summary: Let me start by saying that I love Razer products, and I like to try out all that I can get my hands on. This headset sounded great, but unfortunately the build quality was such that it only stayed functional for about 2 months. I got a more sturdy Plantronics headset for use when gaming.

Razer HP Headphones

Errol Farstad, Amazon
16 March 2011
  • Summary: Good set of headphones; I do like the little LEDs that light up the sides of the 'phones and with 8 channels give an avid gamer like me nearly in full surround-sound; especially helpful when you're heaing impaired AND trying to get sound quality as well as quantity.

Awesome headset if you buy 4 so you can have multple backups when they break

  • Summary: Horrible design. After about 4 months they just fell apart. I had them taped together for about 6 months before I bought another pair offline from a major retail. I won't mention any names, but they claim their Buys are the Best.

Waste of time and money

David Hixon, Amazon
30 May 2010
  • Summary: I have had my Razer HP-1 Barracuda headphones for a long time, and for a long time I have regretted it. I bought these thinking they were the best of the best for gaming, and I even bought the sound card that is made to go with them.

Falls shorrt

C. Jacobs, Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: This is Razer's bastard child. It's a piece of junk, and so is the audio card. Low quality and rushed production seem to be the theme with the combo. These guys are lucky that I forgot about this when I purchased my Naga, or else I may have never purchased another Razer product again, which I think...

False info

J. Boyd Jr., Amazon
29 April 2010
  • Summary: These are not 8 channels(7.1) there are 5.1 which is 6 channels. If you dont believe me look at razers site, [...] it states "True In-Game Surround Sound for Enhanced Positional Audio A 5.1-channel surround audio enables accurate positional audio in gameplay.

So good, I bought it again.

Nick Kirsch, Amazon
22 April 2010
  • Summary: I had tried a few 5.1 headphones over the years and never been impressed as they usually failed to provide convincing surround sound. I saw these on woot! for around $30 one day and figured that if they are that cheap I might as well give them a shot. I was very pleased.

Breaks easily

T. BOND, Amazon

  • Summary: My son really likes the sound of these headphones, but the left earpiece snapped off after less than a year of use. It broke at a really thin connection point made out of what we used to call "pig-iron" or "pot-metal.
