How is the Quality of the latest Razer Kraken (Analog)?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I am new to buying peripherals such as headsets so I would like to know how good is the quality of the latest Razer Kraken (Analog)?

I thought I would get one as a premium while also budget solution for both gaming and communication in general.

Spoiler

It also says it has metallic sort of frame while it feels plastic-like which was kinda weird, I am not used to headsets though they felt tiring after a while on one ear usually oddly enough.

Pardon the abstract post.

Thanks in Advance.

Razer peripherals are usually low-end when it comes to quality, and their sound devices pair that with poor audio quality. There isn't a Razer headset I could recommend.

What's your price range?

I got it at around 60 euros, they do not accept returns so I was curious if I made a mistake, next big thing they had was some expensive headphones above 100 euros.

Last headset I had was a 20 euro headset that literally melted away overtime and did not work (while I dont really use them regularly).

I mean if you treat your product well, then it in return will treat you well. Sadly razer doesn’t believe in that.

 my friend you are wrong, Razer  for me is high/top end peripherals as for quality.

I have the Razer Naga  mouse for almost 6 years and i wouldn't change it for any other mouse in the market, as for the Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma the sound is decent as is the microphone 

The annoying thing is that after wearing them for more than 2 hours they become very uncomfortable..

I am not sure about anything other than I am uncomfortable with headsets in general but when wearing them for a while only one ear feels like squeezed, maybe thats normal with headsets? I dont know... Maybe I am sensitive in the air pressure? hmm... many possibilities.

I owned a Razer Kraken Analog version years ago and they were awful. I ended up returning them. Everything sounded so muddled and there was no detail in anything. To be blunt, it sounded like complete shit. Maybe the newer ones are "better", but I would highly avoid them.

The store does not accept returns sadly, for health reasons or something like that they said.

I also once treated Razer as my go-to for high end peripherals, but unfortunately I don't think that is true anymore. My first mouse was a used Razer Naga Molten I got off ebay and it served me well for 8+ years. I ended up replacing it because the MMB click started to stop working. I looked into replacing it with a new razer naga becuase I loved it so much, but the reviews for the new Nagas were pretty awful across the board. Most people complained about major software bugs and issues (which seems to be a problem across the board for all of their newer products). I ended up going with Logitech instead.

 

My second Razer product was the Kraken Chromas. The sounds quality was ok for the price, but not great either. And also yes, they were horrifically uncomfortable, so I got rid of those after like two years and replaced them with a pair of HyperX headphones which are better in every way.

 

My third Razer product was a blackwidow chroma keyboard. I liked this to start and had no issues after ~3-4 years of use. But then the key switches started failing, and it forced me to buy a replacement. IMO that's too soon for a $120+ keyboard, so I went with a different brand to get genuine cherry switches (ended up with a Corsair Strafe mk2) and I already have to say the Cherry switches have a much higher quality feel compared to my Razer orange switches. 

 

In general I feel like Razer has fallen quite far from what they were. They used to make some quality peripherals but they have become too much of a lifestyle brand that values form over function.
