Razer is having a 50% off sale on all of their peripherals in 20 hours.

Tell me why I shouldn't buy any of their headsets.
>>
They're shit.
>>
>>52412539
Yeah, that's what I hear a lot. So why are they shit? I would like a good explanation, please.
>>
I remember last time there was a exploit during this kind of sale. Got a bunch of free stuff. What's the chances of a another bug hmmmm
>>
They're shit.
>>
>>52412556
It's very tacky and ugly too

I'm fine with looking like a huge faggot, I just want to know if the hardware is any good.
>>
>>52412556
They basically get low end hardware that sounds worse than low-midrange decent gear, market it to gamer kids with shitty plastic build quality and aesthetics, then sell it at a great premium.
>>
>>52412528
Does anybody own the Ouroboros? Is it any good?
>>
>>52412585
Have some standards man, or are you 15?
>>
>>52412589
Okay that's cool, do you have any statistics though? That would be very useful.

I have had bad experiences with both razer products I owned, keyboard and mouse, breaking just after the warranty. I have tried their headphones in the past, they feel pretty cheap and don't sound especially good.
>>
>>52412608
Statistics about what? Build quality? Prices? Audio quality?
>>
>>52412644
Build and audio quality, yeah. I am going to be spending my hard earned money on this stuff.
>>
>>52412652
>hard earned money
>razer

God damn, people like you deserve to be parted with their money as soon as possible, don't let me or anyone else here stop you from making your purchase.
>>
>>52412665
Well my good friend was telling me that Razer is shit so I figured you guys would know best. Helps to get a second opinion, I guess.
>>
>>52412528

Buy it m8. Made by gamers, for gamers. Everyone will acknowledge you if you go to a lan.

[spoiler]If you can afford it, get a top range Plantronics unit, had a listen once, reference quality sound.[/spoiler]

No one has posted anything helpful. What a joke. You all just shit talk. It's all just stereotypes.

All I've heard about Razer is quality and longevity from a lot of people I know. So I'm just going to base my decision more from that than all your condescending shit talk.

You got a problem with virgins, anon-san?

It is my aim to help people in need. With a razer product you're flashing to girls you're not suitable to mate.

I own pic related, they cost me $40, sound is good, they are not the best looking, but comfy as fuck, I mostly use them to play with my handhelds and listen shit at home.

>>52412818
Facts work better than insults and scoffs.
>>
>>52412818
I'm not OP but only one post had been close to a good review but that didn't have any citeable facts to back it up
>>
should i get the RAZER SEIRÄ’N microphone? it looks pretty sweet. wait...will it be able to go 50% off?
maybe i can go for their headsets
>>
Not OP but is the Blackwidow a decent mech keyboard at $40? I might get one considering how cheap it is at that price compared to almost any other mechanical keyboard.
>>
>>52412833
This anon >>52412589 specifically said that they buy low end shite and mark it up for a retarded price yet you blew it off as nothing.

Also fuck off to the headphone general, it's there for a reason.
>>
>>52412874
I've yet to see any facts or statistics so like I said, it's merely shit talking.
>>
>>52412818
>>52412884


There's probably no one around here who could adress this objectively. Since I doubt Razor has disclosed what sort of drivers and materials they're actually using. Altho, one could possibly suspect they're a bit overpriced seeing they'll probably still turn a profit on these things even with 50% off, and considering the price one could possibly suspect they're not extremely high quality parts. But it's nothing we can say for sure, those chinese factories produce exactly what the customer specifies, so what OP needs to do is to leave this shitty thread and actually go try a pair for himself somewhere, have a feel, have a listen, are they comfy on longer sessions etc.
>>
>>52412884
Their headsets aren't the best, probably a decent buy at 50% off. Anyone who tells you everything Razer makes is retarded though.
>>
>>52412884
Buy one of their shitty headsets for yourself then and find out why everyone shit talks them when they're fucked in a few months.
>>
I was given a pair of the Razer Kraken 7.1 headsets. The audio is decent, surround is nice while gaming. the mic is fucking garbage and do not use their software, shit mines your data hard as fuck.

You can find much better quality headphones and a separate mic for the same price
>>
>>52412528
because they are fucking beyond garbage.

seriously, i've bought 3 razer products and 3 have failed, 1 in the first week.
>>
>>52412528
>Buy some of this Xtreme(tm) gaming equipment good goy, of course it'll make your experience more enjoyable.

Take this shit to >>>/v/
>>
>>52412871
I think so. I've had mine for over a year and have experienced no problems. Though actual cherry mx switches are better. These aren't too bad
>>
depends

can you find anything more worth it than steel series Siberia v2's? They're pretty much the benchmark for gaming headsets

/g/ audiophiles probably wouldn't get that comfort and shit is important too

not defending Razer tho
They do have mad markup on a lot of products, like apple
They're not horribly shit tho
>>
>>52412871
It's better than a "normal" keyboard.

The mech keyboard guys seem to like the QuickFire Rapid, though - still has that g4m3r aesthetic if u want the grrl gamers on ur d but is a decent mech as well

but this stuff is going 50% off.
>>
>>52412871
Fucking love it, razer keyboards are really good IMO, mice aren't so much, rest I have yet to try.
>>
>>52413249
So it's still marked 50% over what it should
>>
>>52412528

theyre legitimately all complete shit. i had 3 of them before getting into audiophilism when i was young. guess how many broke. 3/3 within like 2 years and they were shit in addition.
>>
>>52412884
It's your money dude, do what you like with it.

But don't come back bitching if they break down, and be prepared to be told 'we told you so' if you do.
>>
>>52412528

Even with a discount, their headsets are pretty shite in terms of price->performance. I own a pair of original Krakens. To be fair, they're quite comfortable. And the flexible Mic actually came a little bit in handy at times. And the ability to store it was also pretty fucking fab. After many, many years, and plenty of abuse, they still work as well as they did originally.
Now, compared to a pair of Superlux HD668Bs I got for damn close to $40, they're awful. I had spent closer to $70 or $80 for the Kraken, and they're definitely not worth that price. The Mic isn't walmart-tier, but it isn't far off. It definitely sounds like some shit you bought at Best Buy. Good enough for Pubs or older games with shitty voice chat anyway, garbage for anything else. I don't regret buying the Kraken, but I wouldn't do it again, thats for sure. Their newer headphones, I hear, are built by the same OEM as Skullcandy, whom has also stepped up their quality game amiss complaints about shitty audio quality, but I wouldn't buy them for their quality, still. I'd buy them for convenience of features, if their features are actually convenient for you.

>>52412539
Low quality Chinese headset, speaker sounds like crap, microphone sounds worse than the ones built into a laptop camera

>>
Razer headphones are only good for Dubstep because you cant hear shit and it's only random toilet noise.
>>
Depends on the price after 50% off 2bh. Their headsets aren't bad, but they're kinda ugly. Considering you're just wearing it around your computer who cares tho.

For about 20-25 bucks it'd be a great deal if you can get it, but they're not nearly good enough to be worth 50 bucks.
>>
>>52412871
Razer uses horrible knock off switches, so no
>>
i looked at their store since 50% off is a great deal.

nothing sparked my interests. their keyboards either use shitty blues or their own "switches" let alone their keyboards are of basic quality. they don't offer double shot key caps for example.
>>
*crosses fingers*

please have salmosa

please have salmosa

Mine started misclicking after 4 years or so. I don't blame razer because it was really dirty when I took it apart. I have a steelseries kinzu v2 and it's just not as good.
>>
Have some open back steel series Siberia which clamp to my head an are comfy for short term use but hours on end the cushion bends my ear and the pain slowly rolls in. The audio quality is decent but make sure you test the headphones on for an hour before you decide.
