  1. I have owned various generations of both the A40 and A50 headsets so I was interested to try this sub $100 headset from Astro. First thing I noticed upon opening the headset was that it had a decent weight to it unlike other cheaper headsets ( HyperX Cloud Stinger) for example. Though when on your head it feels very light and comfortable for hours. To note, if you have larger ears you may want to look elsewhere as the ear openings are fairly small. I have small ears and mine just fit inside. Sound wise they sound very good albeit a little bass heavy if listening to music. For gaming purposes they sound very good with one exception. That would be their overall volume when plugged into the dualshock 4 is pretty low. I have them all the way up and they still seem like they need more power. I did connect them to a Mixamp TR and they really shined. Plenty of volume without distortion and very comfortable. Also the microphone quality is easily the best quality from Astro to date. Clearer than any on any generation of A40 or A50. Great headset if you want Astro quality but are on a budget. Just be wary of the small ear openings and lower volumeEdit: The low volume issue I was experiencing ended up being the 3.5mm port on my dualshock 4 being bad as I tried the headset on my other dualshock 4 and it was much louder and even clearer. I now keep the headset at about 50-60% volume as any louder becomes intolerable after about an hour. So now the only issue would be the small ear openings if you have larger ears. Very pleased with the sound and microphone quality from this headset

  2. This headset is light weight and has very good quality sound for the price and is very comfortable. Microphone works good as well. Lights on the sides of the headset make it look nice.Only complaint is that this headset is meant for PC users given the fact that both the USB cable and microphone plug in are connected very close together to the cable. Meaning, that if you are playing on PS4 you plug the microphone cable into the controller but can’t plug the USB cable into the system for the lights. I ended up buying a 3 foot USB extension cable in order to be able to use the lights. So if you are using anything other than a PC and want the lights on the headset while you play, then you’ll need an USB extension cable.This product is very good though. Very happy with the purchase

  4. They were amazing headphones until they developed a short near the jack. I had to hold the wire at just the right angle for them to work. I am very disappointed with the durability of the wire given these are $100 headphones. I’ve had tougher $5 usb cables. I won’t be buying HyperX products again as this is a huge oversight in design.

  5. I’ll start off by saying I’m a middle aged dad who purchased this for my teenage son so that he would stop borrowing his sister’s Beats for gaming. I was first expecting to pay $100, but was pleasantly surprised by the pricing and reviews for these.I just now tested these, and to me, they don’t seem too bad. The audio quality is lesser than the Beats he was using, but to me, that’s OK. They are not as comfortable as the Beats either, but they’re still fine for wearing for hours on end.Unfortunately, they were not acceptable for my teenage son. This was just one gift of the many for his birthday. We tend to go overboard, even before Christmas. He wasn’t overly thrilled, but used them immediately. Later, in a fit of rage over his other gifts, he shouts “Thanks for the $10 scratchy headset Dad!”.So, if you’re a middle age person looking for good value, I think these are a good fit. Though, if you’re a spoiled brat teenage boy who wants to hear what others will do to his mom in the best sound quality and comfortability, these may not be the best purchase.

  7. I bought these for my boyfriend because I could not stand hearing the constant shooting noise coming from the Call of Duty game. The dog and I have our peaceful little house back, and do not feel that we under attack by the german army.

  8. Had this product for just over 2 months and the mic stopped working- a replacement was sent out within a week of me writing my first review extremely impressed new one works perfectly very grateful for the quick response

  10. My son loves this headset. He hasn’t been outside in 4 1/2 months and when i threw the football to him, he took it to the face – didnt know to put his hands up. Sad state of affairs… but very nice headset.

  11. I got this in a rush when I needed a new headset. In hindsight a bit more research would have had me getting something else. As a precursor to the review I feel that it is worth noting that I am very rough on audio peripherals. I don’t know why, but they usually last me about 6 months regardless of the quality and price. This is why I choose to buy at a cheaper price point more frequently rather than high-end less frequently.Pros:Price for the quality is greatDecent speaker/mic soundGood quality cable that is at least 6′ longSits comfortably on the headStereo/mic to separate stereo and mic connector includedIn-line mic mute switch and audio volume adjustmentCons:The USB is only a power source for the blue lights on the headset (it is a bit misleading in its uses, but if I had researched it a bit more I would have found this out before purchase)The in-line mute and volume knob would be better with a mic gain knob as wellIt tends to make my head a bit sweaty (I have long hair and live in South Texas, US. So it is hard to find headsets that don’t do that, but still something to keep in mind)The headset only goes on one way (The traditional right and left side is enforced by the mic only being usable one way. I know I am in the minority, but I like the mic being on the right side of my head)So this is absolutely worth the money, but if you are looking for a high-end headset this is not it. I know my cons were a bit nit picky, and I don’t want anyone to think that I regret this purchase. I knew I was getting a quick solution to needing a headset, and I honestly got more than I was looking for. The USB lighting, while completely useless, is a cool addition. The only reason it didn’t make it into the pros section is because unless you want to look cool on stream it is wasted resources.So, yea. If you want a good quality headset for a good price this is great for you.

  13. First off, the headsets are very comfortable. I could wear them all day. They sound good and all, but there’s a catch for Xbox users: you can’t use the 7.1 Surround Sound USB card. After a brief talk with the customer service (who was very nice), I found out that this piece is “incompatible” with the Xbox. It would have been nice to know that beforehand! The description says, “Compatible with PC, PS4, Xbox One, etc…” No! It does not work the same at all! The headphones will still function, but not at the same level as expected.

  14. Yeah, you read the headline correct; a cable that if lost/damaged/broken will send you on a witch hunt through realms you thought not yet existed in your mind. Steelseries decided it was a ethical business idea to create some strange usb cable offspring of a USB-Micro & USB-Mini… The result is something you will not find anywhere, not even on Steelseries’ website; as it is SOLD OUT. ($10 for cable, $10 more for shipping of said cable) The only reasonable conclusion I have come to is that the company Steelseries wanted to make an extra buck and design their own cable. Without this thin, easily breakable cable; the headset is rendered useless. Good luck finding a replacement anywhere, I found my own way but I dare not reveal that here lol. Other than that, the headset is amazing; 9/10. (I also have the GameDAC with it for PC, it’s also amazing)

Thanks for my order

  19. I really like this little chat headset. I purchased it to use on my Xbox One because I wanted to stop buying the standard chat headset made for the Xbox since I have had them stop working soon after using them. After trying out these guys I’m super happy because they’re even more comfortable than the ones I was using before and they feel like they are a lot more customizable with the orientation of the Mic. I am very happy with these headsets.

  20. Re revised review.Kraken Tournament EditionXbox one ps4 wii u and pc tested.Nice clear speech bothwaysGood volumes nice and loud.No distortion when you crank up your fav shooter and nice quality on adventure games.The THX dongle for pc (does work on ps4 as a amped headphone) so a little louder than just plugging in the controller, although that’s loud anyway.Good all rounder tested with dolby atmos and worked a treat on xbox and Netflix atmos supported movies.Many times in online multiplayer shooters I have spun round and killed players because this headset allowed me to hear them coming. Always a plus.Comfort.Light, comfy cool gel earphones, glasses wearers these are excellent to, over head band you forget is there no over sweat issues either.Durability these will last as long as you look after them, a lot of metals in the build quality, shame the cable isn’t removable incase the wire was ever damaged but not an issue here.On pc you may find the mic doesn’t work when you plug in your USB THX dongle,Please install razers synapse software to control the headsets volumes and features and all is perfect.Hope that’s helps, anyone that reads my reviews know I’m harsh on items and know what I’m on about, I’ve been in the electronics game years and know quality wise what’s good.These are good. I give overall 8/10 as always room for improvement. A good solid buy.

  21. The media could not be loaded.  A straight forward great headset, the red lights on this are really coolQuality wise these feel solid, I especially like the braided cable as this makes it feel a lot stronger.The in line control include 1 for volume (a scrolling button) and 1 for muting on or off making it easier to quickly adjust during game play

  22. The media could not be loaded.  These headphones are amazing! I love them so much they are SUPER comfortable and the mic sound is the best. These headphones are only 10 pounds but they have 50-100 pound quality. Very comfy padding on the ears and on top of the head

  23. I wanted something that was closer to the original PS4 headset that comes with the console because I don’t have the luxury (nor the desire) to tune-out my surroundings with an over-the-ear headset when I’m gaming. This headset works great. Fits big heads well. No one on the other end has complained.There’s an inline volume control with mute (mutes you) switch. The plug secures firmly to the controller. That was actually an issue with another brand. I used to have to keep holding it in so I wouldn’t disconnect or get variable volume/communication problems.Edit: after using it for a month, the stem that holds the mic has started getting loose, causing the mic to drop. I have to keep forcing it back into the hole it secures to.

  24. As someone who’s been using the g930 then g933 for the past few years, I cannot recommended DTS 2.0 in this headset (the only option) over the past versions which have Dolby Surround Sound 7.1. It just sounds.. off to me and I have a MUCH harder time locating enemies with DTS 2.0. Logitech probably didn’t want to keep paying for the licensing rights. The music sounds good, but that’s not what you’re buying this headset for.Also after using this headset for a couple days, I’ve felt the premium leatherette (although comfortable) holds more heat and might cause more sweat than the G933 sports mesh that has breathable fabric.I was excited for an upgrade but the removal of Dolby Surround Sound 7.1 is a deal breaker for me, I’ve returned this headset.

  25. Bought this for my sons PlayStation and pc. Usb connection to ps4. there’s a seperate 3.5mm input on the headset he also plugs into his pc. Out of the box there’s no way of sending your own voice back to your headset for feedback but we figures out if you download the steel series software on your pc – plug your headset into your pc temporarily – then you can make a multitude of personalisations to the headset like voice feedback, graphic equaliser and even customizer the colours of the headset. He’s altered the colour cycling to match his led lighting. He’s very happy with these and says they are loads more comfortable than his previous turtle beach. I will buy a pair when my turtles eventually fail!

  27. **EDITED**So I have been using a pair of Astro A40 TR’s for the last year or so and although the sound quality is amazing, they were very heavy and were very uncomfortable after longer gaming sessions.So I thought let me give these a try as all my other peripherals are made by Razer, and let’s just say I was not let down!First of all these headphones are a lot lighter than I expected, which helps for longer sessions of gaming or work. They come with a usb adaptor for the PC which works well, but also has the potential to work on consoles without this separate adaptor. I have tried these on my PS4 and was very impressed with the sound and mic quality. The mic as mentioned is retractable and when retracted automatically mutes the mic. There is a separate remote on the headphone wire that allows to adjust volume and to mute the mic for when using without the usb adaptor. The usb adaptor has those functions too.The wire of the headphones is made of a fabric type material and is very good at not tangling, unlike traditional plastic coated wiring.The ear/head cushions are a tad bulky in size/looks but they are so comfortable, like actual pillows for your ear and head.Only thing I wish is that the sides of these headphones had the razer logo light up, like the other razer products :PIf you are into PC gaming and play for long hours, definitely buy these headphones 5/5 ^__^——–Unfortunately since writing this review, I have had the mic on these headphones stop working, I then ordered a replacement which then a month later had the same issue, because of this I will have to lower it to 3/5 stars because it might just be my luck or a serious issue with these headphones

  28. In a word I find these are meh.. the software had consistent issues with audio effects and eq turning off when I launch a game.the sound itself is great until you start trying to push the low end and the mids and highs can’t be pushed particularly either, I would definitely not consider these if your wanting to listen to music on these.for a closed back headphone the sound stage also feels quiet open compared to most I’ve tryed.i will say it’s 1 of the best possitinal audio devices I’ve heard especially for rear channels which most headsets I’ve tried seem to never get right.the mic was ok but far from what is expect at this price point. the battery life is terrible the battery seems to last around 6-8hrs depending on lighting on or off. The build quality is super plasticy the earcup hing constantly felt stressed everytime I pulled it off my head I felt like I was going to snap the cup off.id rather they put money in to the build quality than the lighting.i am returning them due to the gsoftware issues and the fact I don’t believe these will last all that long before they break.i mostly use Logitech products with my pc I can strongly recommend their mice,keyboards and speakers but these are dissapointing Logitech can do so much better.

  29. Logitech after investigation confirmed that my headset was faulty and has to be replaced.But guess what ?They’ve asked me to first DESTROY IT before APPROVING !!! Without any certainty that they would approve !!!It took like 2 weeks, ~ 10 emails, 8 photos, 2 videos and ~ 3 hours of wasted time (so I’ve wasted around £240 already !!!!)One of their emails:Thank you for your reply and advised that you don’t want to make another video showing that you have permanently disabled the product. We understand your frustration about the process. Please be advised that in order for us to process a replacement to your defective one, you need to satisfy our approval team certain requirements that you need to provide in order for them to validate and approve such replacement. Without these requirements, our approval team would certainly reject the request as you cannot satisy any of the highly important requirement which is the video showing the proof of destruction.WIth that said, we are unable to assist you and continue further, thus we are going to close this case as solved. If you decide to submit another video showing that you have destroyed the product, kindly reply with the video attached, you may also upload the video in a secured site and provide us the link so we can validate. Once we received your video showing Proof Destruction together with the printed serial number on it along with your handwritten case number written on white paper, then we will evaluate and update you on your case within 24-48 hours.———————–What was wrong ?- Battery life was a mixed bag (without leds)- All settings were resetting every now and then- Connecting issues (the headphones weren’t turning on, I was able to flip the switch and nothing would happen, not sure if software/hardware but very annoying)Otherwise very comfortable, quality of a sound far from i.e. SONY wireless headphones, but overall comfortable to play games. (not so to listen the music due to very short battery life (i.e. 5-6 hours vs 35-40hours on SONY).

  30. I read all the reviews and looked around online for some reviews and YouTube and what have you. I was a bit wary as I had come from the Razer Kraken originals, got quite attached to them but they were falling apart after six years of use – anyway, these seemed like a good choice overall and these were the 2019 edition, meaning most of the problems that the legacy pair had, have been addressed, which bought a lot of comfort. So I took the plunge and made the purchase.I wasn’t disappointed; they are extremely comfortable for long periods of time, for that special WoW or LoL sesh, the sound quality is fantastic straight out of the box, however, it does improve if you install the software for them.**POINT OF NOTICE** – when I bought these, the microphone was muffled and made me sound like Sean Connery, this is normal behaviour for these headphones straight out of the box. Simply go the sound setting, recording devices and set the quality to 48000HZ (studion quality), clear the quality up to perfection. Hope this helps someone.Buy the headphones!

  32. After ordering and using this headset for a few weeks, I am very happy to have it. This is NOT a headset you use to play competitively. It’s NOT something you would generally want as your main headset.That said, I have some amazing Turtle Beaches and after a few hours of competitive gaming, they get a bit uncomfortable. When I switch games to something not as intense, I immediately switch to this headset to give my ears a rest and still bs with friends. It’s very comfortable imo and my friends have actually said I sound better than when I’m using my much more expensive headset. For the price it’s a great pick up for when you just want to talk to friends or it isnt very responsible to block out the world with a big headset (such as when you’re watching the kids or waiting for an important call).I use this for my Xbox One X and have zero issues.

  33. Mic is to short, also low quality. You have to turn mic monitoring up all the way to hear yourself which creates buzzing sound. No wind sock so you here wind feedback. Headphones work good though. Returning

  34. I bought the Arctis 1 for my son who is getting into gaming and I didn’t want to go overboard with his headset (I am a gamer and have more expensive equipment but not about to have him start on that!). I was really surprised with the Arctis 1. It is very comfortable and light weight. The head strap padding is pretty good and the fit works both on my head and my sons head (12 years old). He really likes the detachable mic (personally I don’t care as I just use it for gaming, but he likes that he can connect it to different devices that don’t use the mic and therefore doesn’t have a large mic in his face). I was a little skeptical as SteelSeries makes great products, but hasn’t done that well at this price point. However, after using it and seeing my son’s response as well, would highly recommend.

  36. If you are buying this mid-July and have chosen this specifically because the Blue Mic sounds so good think twice. Logitech still has not released the proper software for this to work. Whereas they will work as normal headset and mic, there are no drivers or software support to take advantage of the microphone. Watching some reviews on youtube you will see that reviewers have the software and I had confirmed that Logitech provided that to them in a sort of beta version not to be shared with anyone, so normal consumers like you and me just sit here with a sort of useless headset,Contacted logitech but the only thing I got back was them saying it was still not out and they didn’t have a clue when it was going to be out. Great…

  38. I’ve spent much time researching gaming headsets: reading the many reviews; watching the numerous video reviews, touting how wonderful a certain product is, followed by the comments not exactly corroborating the reviewer’s enthusiastic commentary. I bought one headset based on the adulation thrown down on it by a number of positive reviews only to return them in disgust wishing I’d adhered to the negative feedback. Thankfully, Amazon is wonderful at accepting returns…I’ll be honest; Logitech hadn’t figured highly in my hotlist of gaming headset manufacturers. Don’t get me wrong; I love their products, and I own a superb webcam, mouse and keyboard. It was on the off-chance that I looked at these, based on a friend’s recommendation of his experience of Logitech gaming headsets (he owned a different model, but pointed me in the right direction, thankfully). Satisfied by the praise and largely positive/5 out-of-5 reviews, I took the plunge and purchased these from Amazon.The item arrived much sooner than anticipated (thanks, Amazon!), and I was curious, if not, a little indifferent about what I would expect to find and hear.The packaging and presentation of the headset inspired confidence that what was enclosed was of a high quality. With the contents fully unpacked, it was clear that Logitech had produced something truly exceptional and worth the modest price tag.The headset feels of a very high build quality, definitely surpassing what you’d expect for this price bracket. There are several attachments, and ear pads, accompanied by a nice bag to ferry the headset and said accessories in. The clamping force is reassuring and comfortable, and I didn’t have to worry about the headset slipping off. The headset was very comfortable and I can imagine long gaming sessions not to be marred by a sore cranium. The headset doesn’t have any functional switches on the ear cups, enforcing the desired minimalistic design, other than the inline volume control dial, and mute switch. I find this design very pleasing and it means not having to scramble around with your hands looking to flick a switch, or adjust a dial mounted on an ear cup – this can be so distracting in-game.Now in a state of excitement, but still reserving my judgement, I plugged the headset in to my PlayStation 4 Pro. I didn’t make any adjustments to the audio quality using Logitech’s software, which by the way, offers a myriad of customisation to both sound and mic. The out-of-the-box audio was stunning! I could tell from the off that this headset meant business and I was in for an audible feast. The sound is extremely well balanced, the soundstage vibrant, the bass punchy and present. I played CoD: Modern Warfare Remastered, and the headset breathed a new dimension into the game for me. As cliche as it sounds, I really could hear details not heard before, and I felt I was at an advantage now.I am someone with very high expectations, and I can honestly say that this product meets and surpasses them in many respects. If you’re a little put off by the price, I’d say, take the plunge and invest in a high-quality, worth-every-penny product. I doubt you’ll regret it.

  39. I’ve spent much time researching gaming headsets: reading the many reviews; watching the numerous video reviews, touting how wonderful a certain product is, followed by the comments not exactly corroborating the reviewer’s enthusiastic commentary. I bought one headset based on the adulation thrown down on it by a number of positive reviews only to return them in disgust wishing I’d adhered to the negative feedback. Thankfully, Amazon is wonderful at accepting returns…I’ll be honest; Logitech hadn’t figured highly in my hotlist of gaming headset manufacturers. Don’t get me wrong; I love their products, and I own a superb webcam, mouse and keyboard. It was on the off-chance that I looked at these, based on a friend’s recommendation of his experience of Logitech gaming headsets (he owned a different model, but pointed me in the right direction, thankfully). Satisfied by the praise and largely positive/5 out-of-5 reviews, I took the plunge and purchased these from Amazon.The item arrived much sooner than anticipated (thanks, Amazon!), and I was curious, if not, a little indifferent about what I would expect to find and hear.The packaging and presentation of the headset inspired confidence that what was enclosed was of a high quality. With the contents fully unpacked, it was clear that Logitech had produced something truly exceptional and worth the modest price tag.The headset feels of a very high build quality, definitely surpassing what you’d expect for this price bracket. There are several attachments, and ear pads, accompanied by a nice bag to ferry the headset and said accessories in. The clamping force is reassuring and comfortable, and I didn’t have to worry about the headset slipping off. The headset was very comfortable and I can imagine long gaming sessions not to be marred by a sore cranium. The headset doesn’t have any functional switches on the ear cups, enforcing the desired minimalistic design, other than the inline volume control dial, and mute switch. I find this design very pleasing and it means not having to scramble around with your hands looking to flick a switch, or adjust a dial mounted on an ear cup – this can be so distracting in-game.Now in a state of excitement, but still reserving my judgement, I plugged the headset in to my PlayStation 4 Pro.

  40. I bought these as a replacement for the one that comes with my PS4 as I wanted something a little bigger.These are very comfortable to wear for hours at a time. Nice thick, cushioned ear pads.The sound is nice and clear – a lot better because of the 2 speakers. Stereo sound with a nice tone and just the right amount of bass. Microphone is clear too – had no complaints while using it.The cable is a good length too – around 1.3 meters. There is also an extra wire included, but this was not required for the PS4.If you’re looking to upgrade the earphone and microphone from the one you get with the console, then I would highly recommend this one. Great budget gaming headset.

  41. Jan 2021 Update (original review removed):I can no longer recommend these due to questionalble build quality. Such a shame because everything else about them was pretty much perfect and I was set for these to be my daily driver for years to come!After around 18 months of pretty much daily usage, the right ear cup has snapped off. Not due to mistreatment or bad handling. I removed and replaced these carefully as I would treat any of my gaming equipment. However one day I noticed there was rattling from a loose piece of plastic in the right ear cup. A few weeks later the right ear cup snapped off completely when I removed them.I can see another reviewer has had the same issue and it appears to be well documented on Reddit. The rigid metal headband seems to transfer the twisting load to the ear cup mounts, which is just made of weak plastic. A design flaw which means I cannot recommend the Arctis Pro or any Steelseries headset with the same design.

  42. I decided to get this Kraken headset after getting really tired of using a crappy old turtle beach from my previous Xbox for my PC/Hackintosh. They felt like they cracked the top of my skull open after 2-3hrs of use and my ears were sore. I also wanted a headset with a mic integrated for Zoom and for gaming, rather than using a headset AND the Blue Snowball at the same time, even though the acoustics are amazing on the Snowball.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.Pros:-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 endCons:-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.Summary: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.

  43. Really satisfied with this headset. It is quite comfortable and the design is clean. For such a low price it works well and the audio is clear and easily adjusted. The mic is a little short but that’s a minor concern. Used for PS4 and it worked well, would recommend.

  44. My first headset and i love it! got the attachable kitty ears to go with it. Had some problems at first figuring out some audio issues cuz at first only the left side was working but i think it was a combination of drivers and making sure all my settings were right and make sure to plug it in the back. Had them for a few months now and still holding up well! Not the most comfortable but overall great quality! Would recommend ^^

  45. Love these! I have a tiny head so buying a headset was a stressful experience. My old headset used to ache after a while as they’d press my glasses against my ears or squash my piercings. However, these have completely removed this problem from gaming for me. The extendable mic is also a nice touch as it means you can move it away from your face when you’re not in a party. The comfort and sound quality are both high quality 🙂

  46. This headset will hurt your ears and head after a few hours of useThis headset mic is not noise canceling, it in-fact picks up the sound from the headset speakers itself! So, you get reverb through voip which makes it a requirement to use push to talk.For almost $60 and a brand name you would expect some better padding on the ears, would fix the issue of noise going to mic as well.Overall this headset fails in comfort and functionality with a premium price.

  48. First of all, this headset is the best I’ve ever owned, by far. The sound is high quality, the microphone works perfectly and comes with a free windscreen, and it has very comfortable ear pads with an extra set of velvet ones included. BUT, the microphone WILL BE DEFECTIVE upon arrival, and you need to do something to solve the problem and restore the headset to functionality. By default, the headset comes with firmware version 0030, which contains a microphone-breaking glitch. To use the microphone on this headset, you will need to go to the official HyperX download page for the Cloud II headset and get the latest version, 0010. I’m not sure why the number is lower, or why they don’t ship them with this preinstalled, but this was an IMMEDIATE solution for me, so make sure to keep that in mind before buying these.

  49. The set’s mic died in about a month, two days after Amazon return window closed. I spent 25 min with useless Amazon tech support, that took all that time to redirect me to Razer, told me they would call in an hour to see if the issue was resolved. Never did – Erth’s most customer centric company???. Then I had to answer dumb questions from Razer rep (are you sure you did not mute the mic? did you download software? ) to be told in the end that I already knew – the set falls under warranty. But now I need to wait for another 72 hours from Razer to tell me the next step… wt…And the update from August: after we replaced the first set in March, the second ser’s mic dies again in July. Same horror story customer service from Razer multiplied by all covid complications- customer service unaavailable, send us email – nobody replies, call again- connected to some Razer rep working from him with bad connection… Never ending…Replaced the second faulty set under the Amazon umbrella warranty, sold it and bought a different brand. Bottom line:Sound, look, design is nice, but make is poor. The Razer headsets just won’t last. Then, the Razer customer service is an insult to the service itself. Not worth spending your money and time.

  50. At first this headset worked like a dream, sound quality was great apparently the quality from the mic was crystal clear & I had no other complaints. This was until I put the headset on a few days ago & was suddenly greeted to the left ear cup going deaf. I’ve tried everything to get the sound back & it returns for a few seconds before going deaf again. I’ve been as gentle as can be with this headset, my old HyperX Cloud Stinger I spent £35 on still works now 3 years later but this £100 Logitech headset breaks in 4 months? Ridiculous for the amount of money paid for this, even if I just happened to get a defective headset this is just stupid for the money I paid for this product.

    I got these as a recommendation from some glass-wearing friends. My head is small (I’m petite and a female, I have the whole combo) and on top of that I’m prone to having headaches and I wear glasses. This means that I’ve never managed to wear a headset for over an hour without having a massive headache that usually lasts 2-3 hours.Ever since the lockdown started (I’m in UK) I’ve had to attend meetings and lectures online which meant I would be using a headset for over 4-5 hours a day, so it was URGENT to get a proper headset and this does it.I have been wearing it and the ski-type headband is the best idea I’ve ever seen. I can feel how the weight is nicely distributed and the padding on the cups is the perfect amount for me. It doesn’t press too much against my glasses and even though I need to do some tiny adjustment from time to time, I am overall happy and have not suffered from a single headache since I started using them (amazing).Sound-wise, I am a bass-head and I normally would listen to music through my SkullCandy Crushers with bass enhancement, so this ones being more real, pure sound, do sound weird to me, not in a bad way but simply different. However, the sound is quite involving thanks to the virtual 7.1 sound system so if you’re not a sound purist (or if you just wanna hear the music / sound of your game sharply, these will do nicely.I do like the pick-up range of the mic, because it will pick up my voice even if I decide to mutter, but it won’t pick up other loud noises occurring nearby such as strikes of my mechanic keyboard (which is quite loud) nor my dog barking next to me (as long as it is not a very loud bark). My classmates have reported to hear me sharply and comfortably.The Game-Chat system seems a bit pointless to me but just because I don’t give it much use (I prefer single-player games where chatting ain’t that important and I usually don’t speak while playing), so I cannot say much about it.I would like it to have a longer Jack 3.5 cable extension as it is surprisingly shorter than the USB one, and I dislike having such a short cable wondering around. Losing this bit will probably be unavoidable long term if you’re slightly messy as am I.The external design of the headset has me mesmerized. The feeling is sturdy even though it’s plastic, but also smooth and the matte finish makes it look elegant while still having a nice gaming touch with those RGB circles. There are buttons on the left ear cup, but as I have disappointingly realised, the mute unmute button does not sync with Zoom (it doesn’t even recognize it as a key if you try and modify it from settings). I haven’t tried it with discord yet though. The other thing that could be nice is an option to turn the RGB off if you feel like it, but this is not vital and I don’t even have a huge preference for it, but it would be nice to have the option anyways.The little wheel below the mute button on the left ear cup is smooth, but doesn’t run on her own. It regulates the volume as well as the Game-Chat wheel that comes attached to the USB connection cable. The wheel itself feels a bit more plasticky than the rest of the set, but it runs smooth, although a tad too smoothly imo, I’ve accidentally lowered the voice because the cable moved and I touched it with my arm.Last comment: the retractable mic is comfortable, but I am sceptical and I feel it a tad soft, making me think that maybe I would not fiddle too much with it if I want it to last long. I hope that time proves me wrong!Overall, I recommend this, particularly, if you have issues with headsets due to glasses or due to pressure feeling on the top of your head because of the weight of it. I also recommend it if you look for a nice involving sound that it is not too bass deep.

  54. I hated this headset so much, First of all its really uncomfortable after an hour of wearing it, it was causing me to have breakouts in my skin around my ears and my neck maybe an allergic reaction to the horrible material on the ear cuffs, The mic is crap everyone was complaining about how quiet i am so i had to turn everything up full. the mic has to be basically in your mouth to pic up sound its the worst headset i’ve owned. which is sad because every other Razer product ive owned has been great. I have recently replaced this headset with the HyperX cloud II which are amazing and well worth spending the extra money on.

  55. Overall the headset is great and I like the sound quality better than my hyper x cloud. There are a lot of options to tweak the sound settings to get it how you like but I find the surround sound is clearer which is great in fps games.The sound quality has a nice richness to it and makes listening to music very enjoyable. A nice deep base that doesn’t drown out the rest of the sounds.Based on sound quality alone I’d recommend.The downsides, I wouldn’t say I have a big head but my god this thing clamps down hard. One thing I hated about the hyper x was it felt so weird and loose on my head and now these ones are the complete opposite. I find that long gaming sessions are uncomfortable due to the way it sits on my ears and head. I did have a similar issue with some logitech headset in the past but overtime it got better so I’m hoping the same happens here.The mic is retractable into the headset, although you do have to have it quite close to your mouth when in use, but apparently the quality is pretty good.I like the dial that comes with it, it’s not a volume dial but a mixer (not sure if that’s the right word for it) it allows you to hear more of the game or more of the chat for example like discord. I find it really useful when playing games that require teamwork but also listening for audio clues. I use it all the time.It’s a fantastic headset but a little uncomfortable for people with larger heads.Pros+ great sound quality+ lots of tweaks+ sound priority dialCons- uncomfortable out of the box- lighting options are a little on the scarce side- requires some work initially to get the sound how you like it

  56. I bought this (Arctis Pro Wired) to replace my old Arctis 5 which my partner could use.They sound great, slightly better than the Arctis 5. They’re also really comfy, the earpads feel a lot thicker on these and it feels like a higher build quality. The volume wheel on the headset protrudes more and feels nicer to use, haven’t accidentally moved it with weeks of use.Only a few minor cons:- Still comes with the (in my opinion) useless volume dial on the cable- Mute for the mic on the headset is super easy to press without meaning to- Cable is slightly shorter

  57. Updated: 6/20/2020, added 2 stars. Got the replacement today. To be fair, rated 3 stars. Minus a star for the durability and a star for customer service that failed to keep me updated.Updated: 6/19/2020Contacted the seller on 5/23/2020, was promised a replacement in 3 weeks due to the Covid-19. That is understandable. 6/17/2020 contacted again as no replacement received. Promised that I will get it today, but no tracking information and I did not get any notification from USPS, UPS or Fedex for delivery today… Rated the product 2 stars. Deducting one for missed promise.Original: 5/23/2020 actually did not submitBought the headset for my son to replace the last one that lasted 5 years. When he tried it out for about 30 minutes, he came out of his room and said “Full disclosure, it is like 3D sound and complete silent, I can’t hear out of the headset. So, If I can’t hear you calling me, it is not my fault, you bought it.” I tried it, the sound is excellent and quite. You can hear the foot-steps in the game. However, that only lasted about 5 weeks. The headset is losing sound on the left ear randomly. Every so often, both ears are gone. It is sometimes a fraction of second and other times lasts a couple of seconds before it comes back. Tried on my laptop, happens the same. The device does not need USB to operate just for lighting. Just emailed the vendor, we will see what they can do for me on the warranty. I will update then. A good product is only good when the seller backs it up.

  58. This is the headset recommended by friends for gaming. As I am a content creator, it is a very important addition to my setup. However, after spending an entire day trying to get them to function because support in the UK DOES NOT EXIST because whomever coded their website will not allow for 5 digit area codes, as we have in the UK, and if you live outside of the US and Canada, online support tickets are your ONLY source of help. So I had to send the entire day researching the internet. I found the same issue I had, microphone not working in Minecraft had been reported by 377 other people on the Microsoft website. So at this point I spoke to a Microsoft adviser, who told me, “We are well aware of this issue, we are still trying to fix it so you will have to wait until our next update (no date given) for your headphones to work.So Razor blew it, and then Microsoft blew it too! Tat is why, I am currently giving them only one star, as I have just spent £50 on hardware that I cannot even use, and the company that sold them to me has set up a perfect website system where they are not contactable. Very shading business dealings by both Razer and Microsoft. This is my first experience of a Razer product, so far I would not recommend to anyone, because these are pretty much specifically built for windows 10 64 bit (if you want the virtual 7.1 to work at all) and currently they will not work on that operating system, except as mere headphones, but NOT as a headset!In my book that is an old fashioned swindle!Additional. I was told by Microsoft that this issue would be fixed with their next update, it was not, now my computer will not recognise the headphones at all, and they do weird things to my computer when I plug them in like stopping videos from playing and generally killing audio on my computer. Even though the company offers zero support for the UK because their website is incorrectly coded, they have a facebook page, but they are ignoring my repeated requests for help on there.Eventually they got back to me on the facebook page ad gave me incorrect information on how to fix the headphones. They will not reply again, so not only is this dodgy company trying to sell a device that they say is built for windows 10, but does not work on windows 10 at all, and they do not care if their product works or not.TERRIBLE PRODUCT THT DOES NOT WORKTERRIBLE COMPANY WHO IGNORE YOUZERO CUSTOMER SERVICERIP OFF MERCHANTSHOW THIS GOT AMAZONS CHOICE WHEN IT DOES NOT WORK SERIOUSLY MAKES ME THINK AMAZONS CHOICE IS NOT BASED ON ACTUAL RESEARCH, BUT A BRIBE FROM THE COMPANY MOST LIKELY BECAUSE HOW CAN YOU RECOMMEND A PRODUCT THAT DOES NOT WORK?So, DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT WORK AT ALL!

  59. If you are looking for a gaming headset with a bit of everything.- The light frame(cushion on top) without access to clamping force.- Comfortable ear cushions with proper internal padding and am really happy with that because I don’t like when my ears are smashed.- Multiplatform compatibility with extra dongle available. The sound quality will be satisfied with, even I can write that for the game like call of duty(warzone), I can hear 3D sound what I mean is easy I can notice from which direction the steps coming, or glass is breaking all that kind of things that gamers find useful when they play their favourite games.- The headset has also USB but I think is only to light them up, you cannot use it for USB sound.- The mic is not removable but you have a mute button which is better because I always lose things like that.- The cable is really long I think is about 2 meters(even more).I can recommend the headset because for this price you get a headset that can compare with the expensive budget headset that cost a fortune.

  60. For what it costs, I had relatively low expectations of this headset. I came from a Corsair Virtuoso SE wireless headset that had a great mic and very good sound, but the connection with my PS4 was never very solid and I would notice relatively frequent dropouts in audio. Friends with PS4s swore by using the 3.5mm jack on the controller and I decided to use this to test.Build QualityWhen you pick up the headset the first thing you notice is just how light it is. It feels somewhat solid, but also it’s clear that this is not a headset that prioritized premium materials. It’s also extremely comfortable because of how light it is. Although I’ve never had issues with heavier headsets and neck pain, if that is a consideration the light materials should be great for long term sessions.The pads are faux leather on the interior ring and exterior ring. The part that rests against your head feels like something a little more breathable. I don’t think I will have any issues wearing these for long sessions. The clamping force is a good moderate level where they won’t fall off accidentally, but I don’t feel like I am in a death grip.Mic QualityI made some calls using the mic and, I believe this to be a great compliment to the quality of the mic, no one thought I was on a headset. “It’s like you were actually talking through your phone.” Although they have a gamer vibe, I could definitely see using these on conference calls (as long as the video was off.) Basically, the mic is great.Audio QualityHere’s where I was expecting things to fall apart, but they really didn’t. I decided to make a completely unfair comparison between these and my pair of Sennheiser HD600s run off of an AudioQuest DragonFly Black DAC/AMP. There was clearly no contest between the two headphones in terms of vocals or detail retrieval, but the Razer wasn’t a bad headphone by any means. It had a clear and present bass, without being muddy. I do feel like the Corsair Virtuoso had a more full sound, but the spotty connection ruined it.Gaming tends to be, I think, more forgiving than listening to music … so I ran through a couple of games as a test. I tried a game that I feel focuses on background music (Unravel), which sounded great. I also tried something with more exploding (Borderlands 3) and the headset felt equally competent.Flaws (But Not Deal Breakers)The volume knob goes the opposite of the way my mind treats every other volume knob in my life. Clockwise turns the sound down?! WHY?!I would have loved an LED to remind me that I’m muted. My first attempted call failed because the mute was engaged.ConclusionThe Razer Blackshark V2 X might have a terrible name, but it’s an amazing product at the price point. I don’t play as many games online as I used to and I listen to a lot more music. For me, it makes sense to have a great pair of headphones for music and solo play as well as a cheap headset for online play with friends and conference calls. This works for me.

  61. When I first got my G432 headset and plugged it in, I have to be honest, my first impression was not great as I was not impressed with the sound quality at all. Eventually I managed to get it to a state where I am happy with it, but it took some work…First off, I would recommend avoiding the aux cables and going with the USB adapter wherever possible, otherwise you’re just looking at a pretty underwhelming stereo headset. The 7.1 features are essential if you want to get your money’s worth out of your G432s, but they only work if you use the USB adapter and download Logitech’s G Hub software.Just installing G Hub wasn’t enough to get my headset performing the way I wanted it though; after enabling surround sound in G Hub you’re given a variety of Equalizer pre-sets to chose from, however none of them sounded quite right to me so I had to take some time to set up a custom Equalizer and only then was I able to get the sound quality to where I wanted it.Unfortunately, my woes with setting up the headset didn’t end there though, as the microphone was not registering any sound while using the USB adapter, so I had to do a google search to troubleshoot the issue (going by the number of results it’s a common issue) and it took a fair bit of digging around in Control Panel, testing various settings and options before I was finally able to get the microphone working through the USB adapter. I haven’t tested the mic too extensively but it seems fairly high quality and the flip up to mute feature is very convenient.Now that I finally have everything up and running the way I want it, I must say I am quite happy with the overall performance of my G432s. I got them to replace a mid-range Sennheiser headset which unfortunately lost sound in one ear, and I’ve found the audio quality of the G432s to be at least comparable to the Sennheisers in most areas, and they even outperform them in some regards, particularly when it comes to bass and lower frequency sounds. I will say I’m not overly convinced by the surround sound aspect of the 7.1 features though; even in the test in their own software it’s not easy to differentiate between whether a sound is supposed to be coming from say, the front or the back right for example.The build quality of the headset seems solid. The materials are nice quality and it feels sturdy without being overly heavy. The headset is comfortable to wear (though the swivelling ear cups take some getting used to) and the noise cancellation seems a lot better than my Sennheisers, with less audio leaking out if you have other people in the same room with you as well.Overall I am happy with my G432s now, and I hope they last me a good few years… but it’s hard to say whether I would actually recommend them given the amount of hoops I had to jump through just to get them working the way I wanted. It’s definitely not the best option for less tech-savvy users, but if you have the patience and the know-how to set them up properly, I think the G432s are a decent headset for their price range.

  63. For what it costs, I had relatively low expectations of this headset. I came from a Corsair Virtuoso SE wireless headset that had a great mic and very good sound, but the connection with my PS4 was never very solid and I would notice relatively frequent dropouts in audio. Friends with PS4s swore by using the 3.5mm jack on the controller and I decided to use this to test.Build QualityWhen you pick up the headset the first thing you notice is just how light it is. It feels somewhat solid, but also it’s clear that this is not a headset that prioritized premium materials. It’s also extremely comfortable because of how light it is. Although I’ve never had issues with heavier headsets and neck pain, if that is a consideration the light materials should be great for long term sessions.The pads are faux leather on the interior ring and exterior ring. The part that rests against your head feels like something a little more breathable. I don’t think I will have any issues wearing these for long sessions. The clamping force is a good moderate level where they won’t fall off accidentally, but I don’t feel like I am in a death grip.Mic QualityI made some calls using the mic and, I believe this to be a great compliment to the quality of the mic, no one thought I was on a headset. “It’s like you were actually talking through your phone.” Although they have a gamer vibe, I could definitely see using these on conference calls (as long as the video was off.) Basically, the mic is great.Audio QualityHere’s where I was expecting things to fall apart, but they really didn’t. I decided to make a completely unfair comparison between these and my pair of Sennheiser HD600s run off of an AudioQuest DragonFly Black DAC/AMP. There was clearly no contest between the two headphones in terms of vocals or detail retrieval, but the Razer wasn’t a bad headphone by any means. It had a clear and present bass, without being muddy. I do feel like the Corsair Virtuoso had a more full sound, but the spotty connection ruined it.Gaming tends to be, I think, more forgiving than listening to music … so I ran through a couple of games as a test. I tried a game that I feel focuses on background music (Unravel), which sounded great. I also tried something with more exploding (Borderlands 3) and the headset felt equally competent.Flaws (But Not Deal Breakers)The volume knob goes the opposite of the way my mind treats every other volume knob in my life. Clockwise turns the sound down?! WHY?!I would have loved an LED to remind me that I’m muted. My first attempted call failed because the mute was engaged.ConclusionThe Razer Blackshark V2 X might have a terrible name, but it’s an amazing product at the price point. I don’t play as many games online as I used to and I listen to a lot more music. For me, it makes sense to have a great pair of headphones for music and solo play as well as a cheap headset for online play with friends and conference calls. This works for me.

  65. I’m a former semi-pro Overwatch player, and these headphones are almost better than the studio-grade sound-canceling ones we used for tournaments. 4 stars for sound quality since the ANC isn’t as good, but it still allows me to focus on the game and tune out everything else. The Surround is amazing on these, allowing for distinct and accurate noises even in a chaotic battlefield. Everything from music to movies to games is crisp and clear, and the cable is the perfect length. It’s lightweight and fits snugly on my head, and doesn’t put pressure on my glasses. I would pay 4x the price for headphones as good as these, highly recommended.

  67. First things first, the packaging is not too bad. It comes with the splitter for PC use, which is fairly important. The headset also comes with a nice carrying case, but since the headphones do not fold, it is not very travel friendly.Upon opening the box, the first thing you’ll notice is a ONE TIME USE CODE for the 7.1 surround sound software. I read another review that said the software sucks, but I thought to myself, “Who uses the software for a basic mic anyway?” I went ahead to install the software and found out exactly what the other reviewer meant. The sound stuttered no matter what I did, no matter what application I was using. In fact, it rendered the sound useless as if I was lagging. I’m on a Ryzen 3950x with a RTX 2080ti with 64GB RAM, and nothing ever lags on this system. I tried to troubleshoot it a few times, but the only way to fix the sound was to uninstall the software. Before uninstalling, I restarted the computer to see if it makes a difference – nope. Restarted the computer, and found that I was no longer able to reinstall the software.So I went ahead and played Destiny 2 with this headset, and found that this headset literally has no bass. It might be great for hearing footsteps at max volume, which surprisingly, was not very loud. The mic sounds tinny and muffled, as per my game mates, and worst of all, these ear pads are EXTREMELY hot. The way that the headphones seal to provide noise cancellation, which can’t filter out the fans in my background, leaves your ears extremely hot after even just a few minutes of gaming.I have tested a bunch of $30-50 gaming headsets, and I’m honestly not sure if this would be a great purchase for real gamers.

  69. These headphones are excellent. I’m currently using them to play Star Trek Online and they provide very detailed sounds that assist well in gameplay. Also, the microphone attached is very clear and easily put up when not in use as to not block your vision. I would highly recommend for value and quality.

  70. I’ve been using these headphones for work. I needed something that had a mic that wasn’t attached to the wire part of the headphones. I was using the Beats Solo3 and the mic on the wire would always rub against my shirt or hair and my coworkers would be able to hear that during zoom meetings. Also tried going wireless with the beats and my mic wasn’t as clear.First off, these headphones are REALLY comfortable. There’s no squeezing on my head at all and the memory foam ear pads are squishy. I’m able to wear these all day for work (around 8-10 hours a day) with no headache or neck aches. My head is also small and these fit perfectly when they aren’t extended, I was a little worried since they look huge in the listing. So these would be great for kids as well as small adults. They are able to extend for larger heads though. I like that these also are able to fold up so I can leave them neatly on the side when I’m not working. The earpads are magnetic and can be removed, not sure why anyone would remove them though unless it’s to change themThe best part for me is how simple it is to connect these to my computer. It’s just one cord vs. how some gaming headsets have an auxiliary and USB hookup. These come with an adapter but I’ve been fine using just the main input aux cord.The sound quality is what you’d expect from a $40 pair of headphones. Not as amazing as those $300 noise canceling Bose but decent enough where I can’t hear the AC running in the background if I have music playing. Also the bass on these is surprisingly clear and not distorted like most cheap headphones. I’m definitely happy with the sound quality for $40Pros:- Lightweight and portable- Extremely Comfortable- Cool design (they look like pilot headphones or something)- Simple plug in and play (one cord)- Decent sound quality and bassCons:- Wish the mic could swivel vs. bending the wire upward every time I want it out of the way. Curious how long the mic wire will last if I keep bending it upward when I’m not using it- There’s a knob on the left side that I don’t think does anything?

  72. I bought these headphones for use of gaming on my PS4. I was brought into buying these are they are cheaper than most gaming headphones out there and they promised to have “7.1 surround sound gaming for PC/PS4/XBOX One/Nintendo Switch”. Well I can happily confirm that this isn’t true. I plugged these into my PS4 controller as expected and it gave me stereo sound ONLY. No surround sound. I am returning these with a bad review as it was not clear from the start. There are better headsets out there for slightly more which would do a much better job. DO NOT BUY THESE FOR PS4 OR XBOX USE!I would like to also add that you do get surround sound on PC however you have to install loads of drivers and you have to manually add the surround sound to the headphones, they don’t do it automatically.

  75. My original review is below, and what i say in it still stands, the sound and quality feel of these headphones is very good… however… it seems their durability isn’t… the headband has snapped after only four months right at the center point. This means the headphones don’t sit tightly on my head anymore and sound quality is lost.I therefore change this review from a 5 star to a 2 star… for the money these should last a lot longer…I bought these headphones after having a generic gaming headset for a couple years… I really wish I had gotten these sooner. The sound is awesome, deep base, crisp vocals and everything in-between. The ear pads are soft to wear and block out background noise really well. My friends on discord say my mic sounds a lot better too. The synthesized 7.1 surround is great in games too, made playing destiny 2 a whole lot better.

  76. The media could not be loaded.  This is the second pair of SG500 headphones from Senzer that I’ve owned. I gifted the first pair to a family member and decided to grab another pair for myself. I love how light and comfortable they feel and the sound quality is pretty darn good!Pros:- Build quality- Comfort around the ears- Soft- Light weight- Foldable and easy to travel with- PC, consoles, iPhones, iPads, Android devices (Non-usb c or lightning port)Cons:- Microphone is permanent attachedOverall: Solid little headset, great band for the buck. 100% would recommend.

  77. So here is the thing, you wanna spend 300 dollar or you’re limited on budget? Yep how many people can just drop 300 atleast on any top branded headset regularly? So i read too many reviews on too many headsets on these price range and found this one more likely. Sound quality is so deep and really have a good base ability and also mic quality is really good too and even now when i wanna record my lectures i use this mic. This headset works perfect on my ps4 and PC.

  79. The media could not be loaded.  I am so glad I found these headphones on Amazon. I would give these headphones 10 Stars if I could. I base that assessment on the sound quality and the price. I DJ and I use very expensive Sony and Denon headphones. These headphones cost $200 retail. I can turn them up so loud that I have to take them off my head because it’s too loud and they won’t break. These headphones for $50 are very comparable but the sound quality is better. The drivers that are used in these produce super clear sound. Not only that the way that each headphone is made with a large cavity, they produce very good base. Then the comfort just takes these over the top. The cushions on these headphones are so soft and I could wear them for hours. The first thing I did to test them was plugged them into my PC and play some music through them. I was blown away with how clear the sound was and this is using the onboard video from my PC and not a sound card. I turn them up as loud as they would go with the volume on my PC and they did not distort one bit. I love that you can tilt the microphone up away from your face if you’re going to be using the headphones for music. It comes with the y splitters so that you could plug into your mic on a PC as well. The microphone quality is very good. He’s really add a lot of depth and quality to a gaming experience. I literally hid them in a cabinet because I don’t want my 16-year-old son to try them because then he’s going to want to pair because they smoke his pair I’ve had phones. I really like the retro nostalgic look of these headphones as well. Man, if you’re looking for a really good pair of headphones even just to play music on, I highly recommend these! Buy them now! He will be very happy that you did period trust me. I know that if I ever break my DJ headphones I will not buy another pair and just use these. I could buy four pairs of these for the price I paid for one of my DJ headphones.

  81. I imagine it’s a fine product, but it didn’t sync with the needs of my grandson on his Switch.

  82. The media could not be loaded.  Purchased this as gift for my nephew, and tried it to make sure all is well.The fluorescent changing colours on the earphone are very swish and modern. It is very comfortable to wear with glasses which was important as he wears them.I listened to music on my laptop and my Ipd, the sound quality is really good even for Bass and Jazz.The price is very reasonable. I recommend this.

  83. We have had these for a year. The first pair broke very soon after first using with the microphone stopping working, it then became loose. Amazon replaced them although there was a bit of confusion.With the second pair, the microphone just stopped working and became loose again. And now the sound has gone funny, with some of the internal speakers not working so only certain times are hard not giving a great experience.I’d expect this to happen to cheaper pairs of headphones not £40+ ones. Although our son has a cheaper pairs and they’ve lasted a lot better.I wouldn’t recommend.

    My 12 year old daughter’s review:I really love this headset!This is probably the best headset I’ve had so far because every single feature on it is great!The audio is impeccable, the sound stays within the headset and not all over the place (which usually happens in most headphones).The volume wheel is very easy to use and is great to move up and down smoothly.The cable that connects from your device to the headset is amazing – although a little long for me.I can’t express though how strong and durable the cable is. I have had headsets that have a very weak wire that always breaks after a little while but the wire on this devices looks like it will last a very long time.Last but not least, the microphone. According to my friends, I sounded much clearer when talking than my previous headsets.Overall, I really love this headset and I would definetly recommend it!

  87. The media could not be loaded.  Really can not fault these headphones I’ve been using them everyday for work and at night for gaming. They are perfect for online meetings and playing video games. The best thing about them is that they work across platforms so you can use them with your PC or Consoles. I’ve used mine on my Mac, PC and PS4 and on each device its as straight forward as plugging the head set in. All the wires needed are included in the box and there is even a USB extension wire. The sound of the headset both in terms of the earphones and microphone is fantastic and very clear, its also extremely comfortable to wear even after a long duration. It also has an inline remote control so you can adjust the volume and mic settings. I really like this headset, its great quality and it also lights up too. Great piece of kit.

  88. These headphones are certainly adequate for the price. They provide good sound for gaming purposes and are comfortable to wear. The mic boom seems to be solid and rotates up and down well. My issue around these is the fact that part of the cool factor is the lights. If you planned on using these primarily for a console (Switch) and iPad as I did, then just know that in order for the lights to work you must plug the usb portion of the significant wires into a power source somewhere. There’s a lot going on here with a long 3.5mm audio cable, a usb cable to power the lights and a plastic housing to control volume. So you now have a fairly significant couple wires hanging and in order to get it to light up at all you must find a usb source. I believe for the majority of PC gamers, these will work just fine and the usb lighting requirement will not be a big deal. PC gamers more often than not will be sitting at a desk with lots of usb option nearby. However if you plan on using these for an iPad or Switch these are not optimal as they simply are not the most portable….and good luck having a usb source with you if you plan on being mobile. I don’t think this was clearly enough explained in the description. Bottom line is – for PC gaming…these are great for the price…for anything else just be aware of the caveats.

  89. But, I found the cord and the various adapters kept disconnecting me. I have to use this with an apple adapter, and for whatever reason, it refuses to be snug, disconnecting me, when I try to use it. It does keep my ears warm when I walk outside, which I like. But the dangling adapter with the different plugs was annoying, and It just never stayed connected. I gave up and used a different headset.

  90. The media could not be loaded.  Sound is amazing! Tried these on playing on a PS4 and on multiple games and I am very impressed!The sound is great and the headset is incredibly comfortable, it is very soft and it cancels out the outside noise so you can really focus on the games you play.I absolutely loved them.. until my partner stole them from me! 😂😂😂I will definitely be buying a second pair!They’re great value for money and the sound is perfect.. we have previously purchased much more expensive headsets and they don’t compare to this one.I highly recommend them for yourself or as a gift.The changing led detail is also very sleek and they feel very well made, sturdy and quality materials.They are also compatible with different consoles and pc/tablets.The microphone is very flexible so you can position this as needed and the sound is reflected very clearly to other players.. no need to repeat over and over when playing team games or on a party chat!Honestly could not recommend this any more. 5*****

  91. These headphones have excellent aesthetics, outstanding sound quality, estimable ergonomics and a good microphone. Everything was as advertised, and exceeded my expectations. The only downside would be that the materials are not the highest of quality in terms of durability, but that is not a problem if you care about your headphones.I was just using standard Apple earphones for everything, and I would say that these were a definite upgrade. My friends could immediately tell that I had a better quality microphone.The sound quality is also excellent. I listen to a lot of classical music, so it had to play many different elements, but it has certainly pulled through with its crisp sound.For anyone out there who may be wondering if you can use this on Apple products without the traditional headphone jack, you can, as long as you have the adapter that can convert from the lightning cable to the 3.5mm plug.Overall, I’d say it is worth more than what you pay for, and as long as you know how to handle things with care (though it would still be able to take a few good hits). I would recommend to anyone looking for good quality but affordable headphones for not only gaming, but even general purpose. I hope this was helpful.

  92. Only lights up when plugged into computer. Wish I knew that before I bought them for my kid.

  93. Better sound quality from my 20 dollar pair.

  94. This was tested on a PC, so if you are looking to see how it might work on a console I can’t tell you.I did three tests of it. Comfort, Sound, and Microphone.Comfort, it fit fine on an adult. I don’t think younger kids would like this as it feels due to the size made for older users.Sound: I had some issues with the sound. I played various music files, youtube clips, and shows to see if I see a difference between them and my normal headset, and I did. It had a much lighter tone to it, and a bit hard harder for me to hear.Microphone: I asked a few people who played online with me if they noticed any difference. Most of them didn’t, but there were a couple people who said it sounded like I was in an open room and less focused on my voice.As a PC headset it will do the job. If you are looking for a mid range gaming headset, this might be something you would be interested in. If your looking for sound clarity, or a good microphone I would look for something else.

  95. RGB on the headset looks good, not too bright. All cables from switch to pc are included I use on an Xbox and pc. Sound quality isn’t bad either, especially for £15. Very comfortable even if you wear glasses like myself the earpads are extremely soft so they don’t push on your glasses too muchWell worth the money

  96. I like:- the sound quality- the 3.5mm connection so doesn’t take up a USB slot- it is very light- the flip to mute micI didn’t like:- it is too tight if you have a big head- the scratchy material on your ears

  98. To start with i have to say dont let the price fool you. These are really good sounding headphones. Ive never been a big fan of headphones when gaming because i found after a period they became cumbersome and heavy on the head but i spent 4 hours gaming with these and i didnt experience any of that. They are very lightweight and comfortable with nice chunky ear cushions. The mic also works nicely with clear audio (so im told) in the box you get everything you need to plug and play but most importantly you get an extension for the usb connection which i thought was handy. You have a mic switch and a volume reel on the cable which makes it easy for adjusting while gaming. Overall im extremely happy with this product and the build quality.

    As the title says, I never really used a headset before. It’s always been the earbuds for me for almost everything. Now I got something in my ear that I had to take care of and I was advised not to wear those…so here I come to try a headset for the first time.I always thought it looked uncomfortable wearing something over your head and ear…but oh boy I was wrong!But again I have no other experiences with any headset, so my review is solely based on how I feel compared to earbuds not other headset.First of all, while searching through options given to me, I thought the price of FIODIO would be an inexpensive alternative to those gaming headsets with a higher price tag, still giving you virtual 7.1 surround sound! I used it on my PC and I enjoyed quite good audio in terms of depth, clarity and definition!Now much more comfortable than earbuds, it is also quite stylish.So This headset has given me a great overall experience so far.Oh one thing to add, Mic works good but isn’t detachable (unless I missed how to do it in directions) so that might be a drawback for some?The bottom line: it’s quite a good deal giving you excellent 7.1 sound for such a low cost IMO.

    I’ve used these headphones for about a week so these aren’t just initial impressions.I know these are marked as “gaming” headphones. I got them to use with my Dell Windows-10 laptop for online meetings, generally over Microsoft Teams. As such, there are a few things that may not line up with typical “gaming” usage.PRO===Good sound qualityGenerally solid, well-madeCON===Too wide for a narrow or small headPadding is OK but not specialMissing documentation, drivers, no obvious manufacturer support*** No “side-channel” sound provided ***1. Comfort and WearabilityI have worn these headphones regularly over the last week, including a few long sessions measured in hours. They are fairly comfortable, but my ears do get warm and I can feel sweat developing under the earpads and the padding along the top. The memory-foam padding is soft and feels nice. The covering is a little “vinyl” to the touch, and while it’s described as “breathable” I’m not sure how well that stands up.The earpads make a good over-ear covering, nicely surrounding the entire ear and providing a fair amount of noise suppression. There is no active noise cancellation. With no audio playing, it is kind of like having cups over your ears.These headphones are made for a wider head. My head is narrow, and bottoms of the earpieces rest comfortably on my skin but the tops are not making solid contact. The headphones are adjustable, but keep mine at the smallest setting; any more and they would not fit correctly at all.I wear glasses to use the computer, and the earpieces of these headphones fit nicely without crushing my ears into the bows of my glasses. If you have a wider face, you may not have the same results. My glasses measure 13 centimeters or about 5 1/8 inches across at the temples. (See photos.)2. Sound QualityI compared these against the high-end Plantronics speakerphone I have been using for my online meetings. Everyone on the other end of my calls agrees that the sound from the microphone is superior. The microphone itself can be folded up and out of the way (very useful when you need to drink coffee or grab a quick bite without removing the headphones) and the pickup is good. I didn’t have any complaints about background noise.The incoming sound is quite good. I’ve listened to a number of different kinds of audio, from speech to music, and had no complaints. It’s fairly rich and definitely better than computer speakers. It’s certainly not concert-quality but for day-to-day functions, it’s fine.I specifically tested both right-channel and left-channel sounds, and they both work well and as expected; there was no cross-talk between them.3. MiscellaneousThe cable is high-quality and durable. The connector seems solid. There is an inline switch on the cable with 3 functions: (1) turn the LEDs on and off, (2) adjust the incoming volume with a dial, and (3) mute the microphone. For my regular work, I would never use these switches – I find it more convenient to use the computer’s soft-controls to control the audio, and I don’t care about the LED highlights – I immediately turned them off and forgot about them. On a gaming system, access to the soft-controls may not be quite as easy, so if you like them, they are functional. I did note a crackling sound when muting or unmuting the microphone with the inline switch, but it was not very annoying.I’ve include snapshots of the included “manual”. The “instructions” are really just a list of features. I was unable to find the referenced drivers to enable the “virtual 7.1 sound”. I did attempt to find the drivers but haven’t been able to locate the manufacturer website at all. There is an email on the “instructions”; the domain is registered through Alibaba but the website is entirely in Chinese, which I do not read.The headphones weigh in at about 266 grams or 9.5 ounces by themselves. The switch seems to add about 30 grams or 1 ounce. The specs say the headset weighs 390 grams, so my set is a bit light, though the cable may add a couple of ounces.When the LED highlights are on, you can see light through the foam padding inside the earpiece. It’s not a problem unless you have eyes where your ears should be, but it does suggest that there isn’t as much insulation or noise isolation as you might prefer.The biggest issue I had, and remembering that my use is as a standard communication headset instead of a gaming headset, is the lack of “side-channel” sound. That means, when you speak into the microphone you cannot hear yourself well. The headphones do a good job of blocking ambient sound, which includes your own voice. This means it is hard to tell whether you are speaking at a comfortable volume, and you may end up shouting or speaking loudly without intending to do so. I was unable to find a satisfactory work-around for this, but over the course of several days I did learn to modulate my voice better. This may not be a significant issue in a regular “gaming” use, but it is a problem if you think you’ll also use them for computer telephony. They’re functional, but definitely not perfect for that application.

  103. Was looking for a product which wasn’t going to break the bank as I’m a casual gamer. I’m surprised at the quality of these. They fit really well, even with my tiny head, are adjustable, and the band is flexible too to make a more comfortable fit. The sound quality is brilliant on them. I’m not a tech expert to know the ins and outs but sounds like surround sound when you’re using them, loud, crisp, clear and bassy. The lights on the ear muffs and mic are an added bonus and they too are clear and bright. Cable long enough that you don’t feel tied down. Overall easy to use, good quality and really quick delivery

  106. The media could not be loaded.  If you’re looking for an affordable headset without a heavy price tag, this is definitely the one to buy. The crisp sound makes your gaming experience better. If you’re into first-person shooters like me hearing footsteps won’t be an issue with this headset. The gunshots sound immense through this headset. The design is great, the overall finish of this headset is not only attractive but provides the comfort you’d expect from an expensive headset. Strong and sturdy build.

    The media could not be loaded.  My reviews are detailed. If you want the short and thin, it’s a good product, but buckle up for a wild ride to get what you think you paid for. 7.1 surround is not easily obtainable.Now, I should start by explaining that I am very technical. I am a software developer who for ten years ran a custom to order computer company that catered to enthusiasts with hefty hardware and software needs to target specific gaming goals.The device is gorgeous, durable, sounds awesome, super comfy, has a very nice feel to the cord, and my favorite feature: the physical mute button when you squeeze the extendable, flexible microphone is super satisfying… and glows red when you’re on mute. The style and look is absolutely inspiring, and all this other stuff is awesome…yet I still can’t run this thing in 7.1.They say there’s a code to enter in the Synapse app. They say after you register the product you’ll get the code (your serial number is under one of your ear pads, BTW… You’re welcome). They also say that this is virtual 7.1 based off 5.1 technology, and most games only support 5.1 anyway. They ALSO say that if you want to you can pay for a new code to subscribe to the ability to use 7.1 features. I would sooner sell it than to pay a subscriber fee to use my own headphones.So after three days of messing with this thing I’ve totally given up on some email they claim to have sent, some code to enter into another software suite they want me to download, and expected software letdowns from the games I play that don’t support 7.1 anyway.I don’t see a need for all this hubbub… just pack the ability with the product and make the software run it… there’s no reason for this “enter a code to get another code to download a new bit of software to enter another code” crap. That may have been exciting for 12 yearolds in the 90’s but we just want it to work. For the love of all that is holy… for the prices we pay, just make it work!

  110. For $20 you can’t beat this thing. The sound quality is actually quite good. The microphone is ok. Keep in mind this is audio plugs, The USB is used for the lights only.

  111. Quality may not be the best broken after around 1 month of usage for work and some gaming lightly used.When they worked sound and comfort was great but expected them toLast longer than they have.Sadly I would not buy again.

  112. This headset is brilliant! Deep bass, crystal clear sound and a desent high volume limiter. For gaming, noise cancellation and volume control…. top notch. It has a cool, robust and quality design and very comfortable to wear. If you are playing on a console you will need a (3.5mm 4 Pole Y Splitter Cable) for the mic to work together with the sound, as shown in the pics.There is no splitter cable added with the headset.

  113. I have been looking at getting a new headset, looking at the Logitech or plantronics rig headsets than I saw this device. The build quality of the headset is great. It had a flexible plastic headband and a thick sponged lining for comfort. The ear cups are large enough to sit around my ears and don’t cause any pressure sores even after hours of use. The audio is great for both deep explosive percussions and crisp music. The mic is great for communicating with my team and I was told that my voice was more clear and isolated than my previous headset which they thought had good monitoring. Overall an excellent headset for budget prices. Highly recommend for all gamers

  114. Brilliant gaming headset with lovely sound quality. Would highly recommend.

  115. Initial impressions of this headset are good. Sound quality is impressive, the mic functions are clear and easy for other people who you are gaming with to hear what you say.It is comfortable, with plenty of adjustment for the head band part of the frame. The controls are easily accessible to mute the mic, or turn volume up on the ear pieces.Too early to tell on longevity and life of the product, but so far, it has been a happy purchase

  116. In these past two years I have moved 3 times, so I don’t know where much of my Vine stuff is stored (most of my belongings are in still in boxes in storage), thus is the reason it took me this long to review these buds by Asseso. I was delighted to come across them in one of the boxes. I remembered how good these buds sounded the brief moment I tested them out when I first received them.In the past two years, I have tested and own countless earbuds, most of them being wireless. They have ranged from $45 buds, to $350 buds.All I can say is that, in general, I don’t think wireless buds sound as good – by a long shot. Sure, the $350 buds sounds good, but they’re tons heavier, have to be charged, and I can still hear the compression. It’s always a treat to come across good sounding WIRED buds. I can really hear the difference in sound that I can actually ‘feel’ it.I’m more a fan of neutral/flat sound, as opposed to bass heavy sound many seem to be into. While I wouldn’t consider these buds to be neutral/flat, as they are tuned to be slightly on the “bass-y” side, I would totally listen to these. The HP1 has an exciting sound signature, and sound super smooth. I can’t put it into words, but I can tell these aren’t ‘wireless’.Bass is clean and pronounced, gets deep and is robust. The mids, while slightly subdued, is clear, and treble sparkles just enough not to hurt the ears. Though the bass does take center stage, it doesn’t overpower and muddy the rest of the sound.These Asseso HP1 buds are super light, and so comfortable that I forget that I’m wearing them, especially after having used wireless for so long.So, where do these stand in the army of buds I own in terms of sound quality? These sound better than all but one of the buds that fall in the $100 range that I own, and sound about as good as some buds I have that are in the $200 range. Some that I have in that price range don’t sound as good as these. The $350 pair I own do sound better only because the flat/neutral tune I prefer coming from superior drivers, as they are perfectly flat/neutral sounding, and I like that best. But still, I can sense the ‘compression’. And these get MUCH louder. That’s another thing. I absolutely hate that most wireless buds just don’t get loud, and that makes such a huge difference in the listening experience. In terms of sound, these out-rank all but a few wireless buds I own, and that’s a similar story with all my wired buds/headsets/headphones, with the best sounding among them being better sounding than any wireless thing I own by a country mile. ‘Wired’ stuff is in a class of their own.I seriously hope wired technology is never fully phased out of existence, as it’s clearly superior….and these are only $23. It makes you seriously wonder about the ‘wireless’ tech they’ve been trying to push on us at ridiculous prices. That’s not even considering that you turn your head into a receiver of EMR whenever you pop one of those wireless buds into your head. Sure, you get some EMR on even wired stuff (from the EMF generated by the magnets inside the buds/headphones), but not nearly as much as you do when add in the fact that you’re transmitting/receiving large data packets straight from your head.In the end, for many reasons, I still prefer everything to be ‘wired’ even in 2021. These buds by Asseso is one of many examples of why I do. At $23 they’re not going to be the best sounding anything, especially when you compare them with other wired buds/headphones that cost much more, but they certainly sound better than most wireless stuff I have even at $23 – the price of a decent meal these days. Get these. At $23 you won’t be disappointed.

  117. lovely and comfortable to wear, great noise cancelling quality and sound quality is superb, very sensitive volume controll adjustment.. Nice long cable

  118. Bought as a gift for the hubby.He was over the moon.Brilliant quality well made and worked perfect with his ps4.Would recommend to anyone.Plus you get peace whilst he’s wearing his headphones

  119. This is the 3rd one of these we’ve bought as they’re so good! Now all 3 of my boys have the same headset. Excellent at cancelling out outside noise great sound quality and the mic is brilliant. They are comfortable for any age, my 5-year old uses them sometimes too. The boys can sit in there separate rooms gaming playing against each other without shouting around the house. Considering the price of some of these gaming headsets is ridiculous, these are worth so much more than they cost as the quality is the same. Absolutely recommend to anyone and they’ve lasted so well with three boisterous boys, would definitely buy as a gift or purchase again if they break. Perfect bargain, very happy customer! 😁

  120. These work great got them for my son in law for when he playing video games, that his wife( my daughter) would quit complaining of the sound. Lol. He loves them, good quality, good sound, and she says she can’t hear the games at night anymore.. I give it 5 stars all around.

  121. They are at the limit of expansion on my adult male head. I do have a largish cranium. Any bigger and they would be pointless as the top bit would rest against my scalp and become uncomfortable after a while. But they don’t, just.The volume control works fine but is too easy to knock accidentally. You put them back on and spend 10 secs wondering if you’ve muted things, but it’s just you’ve accidentally turned the volume down without noticing.Sound quality seems a little bit off. Not as good as my previous but adequate.Not bad but not great and a touch on the small side.

  122. These do what the listing says. I originally got them to keep the noise down when the wife is sleeping but it is better than expected. The sound is better than my bedroom stereo system ( 2 2-way speakers and a subwoofer) and I can isolate what direction in-game noises come from.Big in size where I would not get them for youngsters. Very light and comfortable for an adult or nearly adult.Volume and mic controls are in a convenient location that will be about center chest for most people. Noise cancelling mic is good. I have no use for the lights on the headset and have not used them. A velcro strip is supplied to tie the usb cord with the audio cord so it isn’t just dangling down if you’re not using it.Overall a great purchase in this price range.

  123. My grandson loved it!!

  124. Bought these to connect to the nintendo switch dock and use wireless. Just plug the usb in the side of dock and away you go. My son who is 7 totally loves them. And when away from the dock use the jack plug cable to carry on using as wired headphones. Definitely recommend these. It doesn’t mention switch compatible but work fine.

  125. I chose this brand on the strength of the reviews, which were generally positive.For: price, quality of sound, especially bass, and that it comes with the splitter lead necessary for PC gamers. If you use a console, then you remove that and plug it in to the single socket they have for sound and mic.Against: if you tap the lead or anywhere on the headset you get a plasticy noise in the head shells. Not a serious problem but be aware of it. More expensive sets have softer wires. You cannot adjust the fit over your head. I’m an adult and the set slides down on my ears so the fit is slightly uncomfortable. Even the cheapest sets usually have some way of adjusting the head band, not these.The lead is a generous length and the in-line volume control is good, and includes a mute switch for the mic.The mic stem seems short but it works very well, so that doesn’t really matter much.For the price, neither is a deal breaker and I would recommend them for the price, with slight reservations. Including the PC lead is a bonus, and the coloured LEDs are attractive but cosmetic only. Note that the USB lead is to power the lights, nothing else.

  126. So far I used it I could hear the music but have used ot to chat yet

  127. Bought just to fit with the rest of my Logitech stuff but just had a complaint with the mic, I use to use a condensing mic but just became a hassle for when I clean up keep getting in the way, so I bought these to replace it but having heard the mic I was not impressed. The speaker sound nice, their comfy, light, nice head fit. But for my use the mic is not the best and has feedback and can hear the other person talk adn it got quite annoying for them obviously and it also made them hear my music when playing anywhere past 50% volume.

  128. The media could not be loaded.  This wireless gaming headset is an upgrade to one of my kids wired gaming headsets. I think these wireless headphones are worth it in the long run as they actually last longer. My experience is that the constant tugging at the wired headsets eventually cause failure in either the sound or microphone capabilities. These wireless headsets, although cost more initially, don’t have these problems. I already use a wireless pair myself and after 6 months of regularly use are still working perfectly. The sound and microphone quality of this headset is very clear. Stable connection with no noticeable time delay from being wireless.

  129. Do not like the side lights. They are very distracting. Will have to buy replacement headphones.

  130. I bought this headset for my 10 year old son, to use with his PS4 & gaming chair. The headset is very well built & the microphone on the headset is positioned well & sturdy as I bought a cheaper version that snapped easily. Overall, the headset 8s very comfortable and the sound quality is excellent!Plenty of cables included to pair with pc, ps4 etc.Perfect choice!

  131. The media could not be loaded.  Plug and play with no installation required on Windows 10 PC. It is light and comfortable to wear for long gaming times. The ear cup is big enough for most sizes, could have better sound isolation but the headphone weight very little so I don’t expect must sound proofing etc.Music quality and voice com is above average, given it is digital and transmitted via the 2.4 channel it was as expected to be quality as source. The mic boom can be tucked away when not in use and there is a mute button along with volume up and down on the side of the left cup.Charging it is easy via the USBC socket, I use a magnetic cable as a add on so make it easier to plug in and out for charging.We have used it for music around the room and at less than 10m there is no cutting out or dropped signal, perfect if you need a toilet break and maintain team communication at raid !

  133. Does exactly what it says.

  134. I bought these headphones solely for gaming. They connect to consoles via a dongle which makes connectivity simple. If you don’t have any available USB slots there is the option to use a wired connection. I have used these for work meetings, the microphone and dedicated mute button make these great for meetings.The over ear speakers are very comfortable, and large enough which means ambient noises can be excluded, this is useful in noisy environments and games with dialogue. There is foam padding on the top of the headphones which makes these comfortable for prolonged use.

  135. Bought these for my son and he says they are very good for gaming and sound really good. He was surprised.

  136. I like the design, got nice blue lights.. really good headphones.. love them 🙂

  137. Good value for the priceGaming mode greatSound quality greatNoise cancellation great

  138. Good headphones can’t go wrong for the price but the picture shows them lighting up, they don’t it’s just blue plastic

  139. You cannot connect using just USB. That plug powers the RGB lights. Purely cosmetic and a bit of a waste of a USB port. This means you need to use the jack plug. Struggling to get Windows to recognise that the headset has a microphone. Compared to other plug-and-play devices this is a bit pants. Would not recommend for PC.

  140. It’s a good headset, led lights are great, only seems to pick up background noise, unless it’s being used wrong?, quite happy

  141. son loved it but after a couple if days the wire shredded that connects it to the controller so need to buy a different one 🙁

    My first version of the Kraken headset from Razer was the Kraken 7.1 V2 – got it back in 2016-2017ish, it died in January 2022 via short in the wire. Looking at newer version’s of the Kraken, this one stood out – this headset had the same qualities that my old headset had, but with newer hardware. I would have grabbed the newest Kraken V3 headset but it did not have the Retractable Mic that I love to have. I bought a BlackShark X, and couldn’t stand the mic being in my eye sight when gaming.I did have to install the new Synaps v3 for this headset, but that is fine. Wish Razer would have supported the older Kraken headset (Which used Synaps v2 to use) with Synaps v3, but the world isn’t prefect…Back to the headsets.PROS: Wired (because battery life is a joke), 7.1 surround sound, THX Spatial DAC (button on the headset), Lights up with RGB Razer Chroma, base boost (cause I love to rock out with music, while also having my head shake when something blows up in games), Ear cups are oval, and big (so it can fit my big pointy ears), with memory foam, and cool gel cushion. The headset uses metal (aluminum & steel frame) to connect the ear cups to the headband (which I love, plastic tends to break easily). Also it has the retractable mic (don’t have to worry is I take the mic off the headset cause it’s still attached).CONS: Since I love the Kraken 7.1 V2 headset since it didn’t have any controls connected to it in any way, The Kraken Ultimate does, which it has a THX enable/disable button, and a volume control (The mute mic button is on the mic it self, which isn’t a con for me), basically I’m not a fan of controls connected to the headset, but this isn’t a con per say, more like a pet peeve of mine. The headset is also 1.8 oz heavier than the Kraken 7.1 V2… Also I had to configure the mic’s audio settings, because people could hear the sound coming from my headset cause I leave the mic retracted into the headset, had to turn the mic’s audio level to 30 – over time it got better, and I have the volume up to 60ish, give or take – just got to get the settings right.On another note, the headset is Discord certified, which I could care less, but it does bring good audio quality on Discord when you have the settings selected to use on Discord.I would have grabbed the Kraken X, or Kraken V3 – or even grabbed another Kraken 7.1 V2 (But I couldn’t find any except now at GameStop but in a different color) – I got this headset, and I’m loving it. Had no real issues, except the one’s listed in the CONS… Razer, for the next Kraken headset, please bring back the Retractable Mic, I prefer it over detachable/non-detachable mic…

  143. When you want lights on USB cable is far to short you literally are face to face with console…. really not thought of

  144. The headset in itself was good, the comfort was decent and I liked the style. However, when I plugged it in to my PC, I noticed some misleading things.A. It does not glow as it states it does. In the photo, it shows the red trim as the part that glows. Reality is, those red bits are just plastic.B. The sound quality and volume are questionable, and not as high quality as stated in the product description.C. The comfort was alright, although they are a tad on the small side for myself at least!

  145. So we have tried a few earphones until now. Wired and unwired. These have finally pleased me and my son. On cheaper earphones you have to be careful as not all features are on all models. These one have a mic that can be turned on and off. They work with pc and ps4. They have good sound and charge easily. So finally we hit jack pot. I’m sure more expensive ones will have better sound but for the price I am pleased and more importantly so is my son. Birthday money we’ll spent.

  146. The reason why I went with this set of headphones is because quite simply they make decent peripherals of a reasonable standard. The other main factor in purchasing these was that they were for my 12-year-old son and he struggles when headphones are too large because he has a normal 12-year-old skull. These really do fit nicely and his comment so far has been that they are significantly more comfortable than his previous pair.

  147. Bought these as a replacement after my Grandsons old set suddenly stopped working.He plays on Nintendo Switch playing Fortnight against his school friends and translated I presume wicked simply means they work fine.
