Gaming Headset Preference?


This is an extremely off topic subject as this game does not and never will require a mic, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to ask here. Does anyone know of any decent gaming headsets? The primary uses I will have are using it during MOBAs, gaming commentary during occasional streams and YouTube videos, and with Skype and other social programs. My budget is preferably $100 or less, but slightly more is fine if it is extremely durable.


My Razer Carcharias has lasted me at least 3-5 years. Proof of concept - I really can’t remember. Doing just fine for basically the same purposes as yours.


I also used a Razer Carcharias for several years before I got a Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma. At the office however I use a Logitech G430.


Use a Kraken pro for my parts, really great sound.
Kraken pro use jack port, Kraken 7.1 Chroma use USB port
a bit pricey but very good build quality and sustainable


Do this come in black too?


Okay, I just ordered the Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma for $86 (including shipping/tax) off their website. After seeing several reviews and the comments here it seems worth it. There were some “new” ones of it on Ebay for cheaper, but the last time I bought a “new” piece on technology on Ebay it ended up having complications within several moths with no warranty. If this headset has problems, I’ll just make sure it happens in 11 months before the 1 year warranty expires. :stuck_out_tongue:

I have yet to find the Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma in any other color than black. It seems like it is only made in black, which is fine because that is the color I need. It is the Pro version that comes in different colors, but it does have black as an option.
