Summary: Just a warning to anyone interested in these headphone who has glasses: as soon as I put these on I noticed pain, and after 30 min my ears were inflamed and throbbing. Other than this, the sound quality was great and the 7.1 Surround and very acceptable.

3 September 2014
Summary: good sound quality but small earcups tend to pinch my ears and make it uncomfortable to wear after a while. also, the cable is textured and makes a horrendous noise which resonates into the earcup whenever i move my head and the cable drags over things. wrap in sellotape or something to stop this. Do not recommend.
Summary: Would not recommend, all the sound quality is just achieved through software and EQ, the actual drivers are poor quality, the general quality isn't great either, mine broke on the 3 day, and I exchanged them for a pair of Logitech G930's, which sound far better, are wireless, and haven't died.
Summary: I bought one of these, and the first thing that i noticed was that it was very uncomfortable. it hurt the top of my head and the ear holes are round, so your ears don't fit well, making them sore.I also wish that it had volume control on the headset. The headset only works with PC though I think it works with PS4 also. On the bright side though, the sound is GREAT with excellent volume and surround sound.
Summary: It is really hard to find a good headset, let alone find a good one below the £100 mark. I really thought this headset would deliver, and from the pros you are really going to think i am crazy for the two star rating... Pros -The Krakens are amazing for the price, the sound is clear and comparable to my Dre Studio Beats I am very impressed. -The 7.1 sounds really good and the microphone is one of the best I have used.
A thorough evaluation of this headset from someone who had to send it back
20 March 2014
Summary: Alright, as one of the few people who didn't like this headset, let me give you my evaluation of this product to consider along with everyone elses. I've split up my points into paragraphs with titles that I think are important to people looking to buy a headset. >>Is it comfortable to wear?<< Despite the product description, "tested by numerous professional gamers" for optimal comfort I was surprised to find that this was horribly uncomfortable for me to wear!
Summary: I decided to upgrade my Plaintronics GameCom 780 with a more expensive and "better quality" headset that being the Razer Kraken 7.1. The build quality of this headset is really good, and it sat comfortably on my head. The design was really thought out and is both functional and great to look at. Like most digital 7.1 headsets this required some software to download and install to get the surround working.
Excerpt: Откровенно разочарован в качестве звука. По сравнению с моими старыми наушниками Sennheiser HD202. Фишка "звук вокруг" 7.1. вроде не выключается, лично мне мешает при просмотре фильмов в наушниках.
Pros: раскладной микрофон с кнопкой гнётся и горит индикатор когда включён
Cons: -звук, на умеренной громкости превращается в гул сравнимый по качеству с наушниками затычками. -слишком много баса. даже на мин. настройках. -сильная прижимная сила. Долго в этих наушниках не посидишь. -при не сильном растяжении в стороны изголовье щёлкнуло. Что то сместилось, в левой части. Попробовал с правой частью, тоже щёлкнуло.
Summary: Pro: - Mikrofon ist gut von der Qualität und man kann es easy verstauen im Kopfhörer. - Die Soundqualität der Lautsprecher ist auch sehr gut. Contra: - Ich habe erwartet, dass das Kopfposter weich ist. Fakt ist, dass es aus 2 Plastikbändern besteht, die in der Mitte irgendwie gepolstert sind. - Ich haben einen schmalen Kopf, trotzdem drückt das Headset ganz schön. - Da die Kopfhörer so fest anliegen hört man jede mikroskopisch kleine Bewegung des Headsetkabels.
