Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 Headset Review

 

Today we are looking at the Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 headset. The '7.1' part of the name is obviously a r The Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 – a beautiful headset capable of 7.1 surround-sound. Is £99.95 a fair price?

Looks great.

Pricey when compared with the competition.

With just a few minor modifications, the Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 would be the perfect headset. It still comes well-recommended thanks to its strong sound quality, excellent comfort and attractive visuals, but there are cheaper options available.

Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 Review

 

Razer gives its virtual 7.1 gaming headset a refresh - for better or worse?

This is a clear improvement over the Kraken 7.1 Chroma in many important regards: Build quality, sound quality and comfort have all been tweaked for the better. The lack of a volume wheel is still a nuisance, though, as is the cable noise in quieter...

Razer Kraken V2 review: Two headsets, one leap forward

 

Despite being as bulky as ever, the 2016 Kraken arrives packed with improvements—and is the best showing this line has had in a long time.

Sturdier aluminum chassis ; Finally ditches the streetpunk look of its predecessors ; Better audio than the old Kraken, especially after EQ adjustments

Bulky looking ; Out-of-the-box audio is flat and lifeless ; No volume controls

It’s a big year for Razer. Less than six months ago, I was ragging on the outclassed Kraken in my Man O’ War review. Now the Kraken’s folded in many of the Man O’ War’s improvements, but with a durable aluminum design and much more affordable $100...

Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 Review

While the does have some drawbacks, notably the inconsistent microphone quality and being slightly less convenient to operate than some of the other products, but it is hard to argue with its superior audio quality if that is what you look for in a...

Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 Review: Monstrous Size, Mythic Sound

 

If you can get past the Kraken 7.1 V2's bulkiness and lack of versatility, you'll find a surprisingly comfortable headset that provides great sound for both games and music. An $100 price tag is definitely fair, given the high-quality audio. Whether...

Extremely comfortable ; Great sound ; Lots of music presets ; Good mic

No 3.5-mm options ; No gaming audio presets

Although it's hardly subtle, the Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 delivers top-notch sound with supreme comfort for both competitive and single-player gamers.

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Crisp sound

 

Every headset I have owned has always hurt my head, these are comfortable regardless of how long I wear them. Sound is exceptional across all sound types, bass is incredible. The only downside is that an inline volume/mic control doesn't exist and can...

Great upgrade

 

I previously has the version 1 of this headset and was unsure about which one to get next as the last one was great, a bit irritable to wear for long periods of time but overall a good product but when i received this product i could immediately tell...

Great headset

 

Sound is great, doesn't feel like I'm wearing them about from keeping my ears warm! Nice design. Only problem I've had is once my mic was coming throw fuzzy but I unplug and plugged back in and fix it. Hopefully it doesn't happen again. Apart from that...

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Very pleased!

 

Before these, I owned Steelseries' flagship Siberia 800 headset (much more expensive!)- but sold these as the microphone picked up every noise in the room (including the TV and kids whilst on work calls/gaming). The Razer Kraken v2 7.1 in comparison...

Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 Gaming Headset

 

Sound is excellent, microphone clear.

If wearing glasses it can get a little uncomfortable if wearing the headset for a reasonable length of time.
