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...
Summary: Really great looks and nice green lighting. Really comfy to wear for long game sessions.
Pros: Works well on both PC and Xbox360. Works right out of the box with all required cables. Has good cord length, high quality sound, adjustable mic boom and headstrap. Has individual voice and audio adjustment nobs.
Cons: Has a slight buzzing noise when plugged in wither or not I have the mic or headphone plug in.
Summary: I haven't had this headset very long, seeing as I only got it earlier today. I had read reviews about it before buying and ready about the "static and white noise", but I bought anyways since I figured I could utilize the 30 day return if needed. The static is not "unbearable" at all, in fact you can't even hear it when you have audio coming through. And even when nothing is happening, it's honestly pretty far from "unbearable".
Pros: -Comfortable Very comfortable ear pads and headband. -Easy setup Plug it in and it works, pretty simple. -Long cable Around 9' if I recall correctly. Just fine for desktop computers, giving room to walk around and then some. -STYLISH This is a Razer product. There isn't a thing they sell that isn't cool looking. -Good sound -Velcro strap (see "Long cable" under cons)
Cons: -Not a very tight fit to head Not so much a con as it is a preference, but as a wearer of glasses this is more of a pro, I am putting here because it is regarded as a con by many. -Sound leaks from earphones Not a very big problem unless you listen to very loud music/whatever. My main worry is my roommate hearing from my headset when they're trying to sleep, seeing as I stay up very late compared to them. -Very limited microphone adjustment The microphone only goes up...
Pros: Very sensitive. - The audio quality is very high - Cables are sturdy - Good tech and driver support - Comfy and well designed
Cons: Very sensitive. Many people complain of static and noise. This is not a driver issue, nor is the device defective. The headphones are so sensitive, that the very slight noise in the USB power it receives distorts the sound they produce. A discrete sound card will not fix this issue. Again, the issue is one of noise in the power it receives via USB. The noise causing the distortion is a remnant of the process of the PSU converting AC (alternating current) to DC (direct...
Summary: Last Razor headset that I had broke easily, plastic = trash. Was taking them off and it snapped. Got this hoping it wouldn't do it like that - they have dropped a few times and still kicking.
Pros: Loud with the base, can hear clearly, can hear stuff sneaking up on me in all games. Soft and comfy to wear. You have to break it in a little bit and get use to it.
Cons: Had to play around with other sounds, have to lower the bass while on voice comms, can get a little to loud with people talking. Not as loud as plug-in to the PC, Plug-in to Xbox 360 and makes me wish it was as loud as my PC, use it to jam out with RockBand - love the bass
Summary: As you might have seen above in other reviews, the only issue that's major with this product is the White Noise/ Static issue. When you plug in the USB to any port on a computer there's a quiet to medium static noise. I did research and it's caused by the grounding of a PC being poorly, so you're best bet is to use an external usb charger to power this. Which I didn't have an issue with. Other than that, it's a great product for the price.
Pros: Good bass, LED light ear pieces, Clear sound, Good design, really comfy, easy setup.
