This review is from: Razer Kraken 7.1 Surround Sound USB Over Ear Gaming Headset

Pros:

Clear Crisp Sound when Recording and
Razer Virtual surround sound works and works well
Stylish
Not very heavy

Cons:

Razer Synapse is required ( though this is not really a con so much as it is a notification to a potential buyer )

No inline volume control

Other Thoughts:

While mentioned in the Con section Razer synapse is a fairly lightweight suite that controls the volume and various functionalities of the headset I use a razer keyboard and mouse that both use synapse so it is nice to have all my peripherals managed by one program.

The lack of an inline volume control is bothersome but it really is not that difficult to adjust the volume even through the windows volume mixer.

Lastly Remember that the headset is a usb headset so it is likely that you will have to set it as your default playback and recording device. Easily done by right clicking the little volume control in your tskbar selecting playback devices and highlighting the razer headset and setting it as the default playback device.
