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.
I'm fine with looking like a huge faggot, I just want to know if the hardware is any good.
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.
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.
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.
>ask for input
>act like a snotty little prick when its not the answer you wanted
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Why are you even here? Just go back to >>>/v/ where you belong.
