Do not buy! Static city

Summary: Razer support claims it's your computers fault for not being grounded properly. My computer is grounding just fine. I even did what they said (using a PCIe usb card). No matter what you do you cannot get rid of the hiss. Razer does not want to own up that they messed up with these.
Pros: Amazing sound. Great for large heads. Most comfortable headset ever. Long cord. Adjusts perfectly to your head. No clamping feel on head or ears.
Cons: These headphones give serious static because them being powered by the USB. The previous Carcharias' did not have this problem. Only the newer version that requires USB to be plugged in. Seriously, do not buy unless you want a constant hissing sound.
Pros: Comfortable, durable, decent sound. I have owned these for over 2 years now and used them for at least 1000+ hours of raiding/ventrilo chat in WoW, no issues, clear mic and a no tangle cord. I have also sat on them many times and only the ear piece popped off which I was able to re-attach easily. Buy these you wont be disappointed.
Cons: Lots of bad reviews from what I can only guess are people that broke them and then wanted to complain, If you abuse your tech it will break - period. Don't be a tool and you will love these headphones.
Summary: I've owned the original charcharias for the pc. Decided to get this one because I liked the other. The 360/pc version, while different doesn't do this headset justice - See cons. Randomly, after one switch, the microphone mute button just completely broke. After. One. Use. The quality of this headset has gone through the toilet in my opinion.
Pros: Comfortable over the ear cushion.
Cons: Random hissing noises. Cord longer than original PC version of the Charcharias The switches for voice volume, sound volume and bass, while nice, are too heavy for the location they are at. Microphone mute switch broke after one use.
Summary: Dropped a star because my particular headset (bought it on Black Friday from a local shop, so, not anybody's fault) separates a bit between the headband and the foam padding for your head (basically, where it says "Razer", it's broke). I definitely did not have this problem with my Kraken Pro, but, whatever.
Pros: Great feel, coming from Razer's Kraken Pro headset, this is much lighter and allows for my larger-than-average head to enjoy this rather light headset. This does emphasize comfort over sturdiness (if that's even a factor), so, those of you who dislike the overly flimsy-feeling peripherals will instantly condemn this headset to tech-hell. Ear pads are not plastic or faux-leather, they are cloth, and are also removable for whatever cleaning you can attempt. Removing the...
Cons: If the bass adjuster is maxed out, the amount of junk that you hear is increased significantly. Maxed on a game is great, but you want to dial it down as the drivers aren't nearly as large nor as equipped for some hardcore dubstep bass sessions. The connecting cables, unfortunately, are not braided in comparison to many of the other Razer products (Sabertooth, Naga, Tartarus, etc.) I find the braided cables a lot better than this coated business, so, not that big of a...
Summary: I found that the Logitech G430 is a much more comfortable design, it feels like a pack of angels are hugging your head as you listen to heavenly sounds of you obliterating your enemies. The sound quality is amazing. The cord is much nicer and it is braided so it wont tear or rip.
Pros: The headset delivers quite good sound quality. Fits good. Durable (good build quality) and lasts long. I have not used this headset on Xbox nor do I have any desire to.
Cons: Hurts your ears, doesn't go small enough for some wearers. The cord is way too long, the dial for sound and muting your mic is four feet away from the headset meaning if I am standing up I can't reach it. It feels like it will break although I have found it durable. The cord also gets twisted easily and I have actually had to go outside and hold it from a ladder so it untwists itself, but it will re twist itself after a few hours of game play. This headset makes you w...
