Razer is known for their top-notch gaming gear, and surely a brand to rely on when you are picking your mouse, keyboard, or, in this case, your headset. The Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma is very good, and very popular headset among the gamers.

They come with bunch of interesting and useful customization options, great sound experience with 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound, and, of course, acceptable comfort for extended usage. The most impressive thing on this headset however, for me, is the perfect microphone. The Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma has a digital microphone which is beyond perfect, if we take in perspective that this is a gaming headset, not a professional studio-grade ones.

If you are looking for a gaming headsets for around 75$ (while they are on discount, otherwise 99$), which are offering you great comfort, audio experience and good looking design, Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma would be a good choice. Also they come with 16.8M color-illumination options, which is great little aesthetic detail to have.
