Seems like a kraken price for the non-lite variant of the Kraken X. Price is including delivery and NBP is based on Amazon where it is currently £49.99

Stay one step ahead of your opponents with the Razer Kraken X 7.1 Gaming Headset. 7.1 surround sound provides accurate positional audio, you'll hear exactly which direction your enemy is coming from.

From fiery explosions to character dialogue, everything sounds crisp and balanced on the custom-tuned 40 mm drivers. It doesn't matter if you're a console gamer or a PC fanatic - the headset is universally compatible so you can enjoy amazing sound on any platform.

Let your teammates know when to take the shot with the flexible integrated microphone. It uses a carboid pattern to minimises background noise, so the focus is on you and not the doorbell ringing.

Weighing at just 250 g, the Razer Kraken X is lightweight and comfortable to wear, even during long gaming sessions. With memory foam leather earcups and a soft, adjustable headband, nothing will distract you from eliminating the final boss.

Don't buy a gaming headset. Buy headphones and get a compatible mic. For example x2hr and vmoda mic

Also if buying hyperx only get the cloud II. Cloud X and other do not have noise cancelling and tend to echo on other players side.

OMG this!!! Gaming headsets are an abomination. Treat yourself to a decent pair of headphones and a separate mic and you'll never look back. Enable Windows sonic or get a dolby licence and use that for the surround sound emulation. It's the exact same thing as what the naff gamer headsets attempt to do. This way you'll have a good set of cans that will be more comfortable, sound better and last longer. Definitely look into the Philips X2HRs if you can.

Bought the Lite for £38 just the other week. Not sure of all the differences but a great deal
Only difference looks like this version has volume control and a mute button but is 20g heavier.

3.5mm vs USB too, I believe.

This is USB, your one should be 3.5mm connection? As in you can plug it into your console pads? Lighting in this too, not the X Lite.

Yeah good shout! Important info for those that may want these for Console.
You’d think mute and volume would be great features on a Console mic too?

It's mad, I keep looking at these thinking about replacing mine - I want a proper surround sound one..

But the one I use at the moment was literally 5 quid like 5 years ago, the NLA turtle beach Wii U headset, it has an adjustable mic so you can move it out the way (many of these its constantly there) and it has a really handly volume control and mute buttons on the cabling itself. 3.5mm so works on all my consoles, fully adjustable, its fine, just not 7.1..

Yet I'm not keen on spending silly money on a headset that doesn't even have a mute button, volume control or even 3.5mm jack. Madness, what a bargain this thing was.

Absolutely loved Commander Keen!

What headset would you recommend for around £100? Wireless, comfort and audio quality are my main priorities but I may go wired if it means better quality, don't care for RGB lighting, unsure about surround sound. I think I'm ready to be dissed in Norwegian on COD:MW.

It is worth paying just over £7 extra for the 3.5mm version from say Amazon? I can never really find any concrete detail regarding surround support on PS4 or Xbox One, hence I held off buying the Sony headset a few months back when on offer as didn't see the point of a stereo headset really.
Just ordered it. Will try it out ASAP.

Razer kraken all the way. I currently use a turtle beach elite pro audio adapter with mine with a “super human hearing mode” toggle on/off button. You can hear footsteps on the other side of the map

Steelseries arctis 7 for me. a little bit more than your budget but worth every penny: £150ish at most places

Corsair virtuoso are also very good. same £150 ish (amazon)

if its gotta be £100 then Corsair Void elite should 100 quid most places eg scan.

The razer kraken 7.1 v2 is a fantastic headset,I can highly recommend it.
Bought the 3.5mm version couple weeks back for £49.99 from Currys...not the lite version. Very very good headset and I'd definitely opt for this rather than the lite, just much easier muting and changing volume
Just ordered the HYPERX CloudX headphones, anyone know anything about them?
This was available for £34.99 today morning at currys. I delayed it as was waiting for some currys vouchers.
Note surround sound only works on PC
No noise cancellation.
I have Astro a50 gen 1 which battery life is next to nothing now, are these worth the purchase and switching to over the a50?
Just a heads up that these aren't "true" 7.1 surround sound i.e. the surround effect is produced at software level. True 7.1 surround headsets have 10 discrete drivers built into the cans. Which is brilliant for gaming, but naff for just about everything else.

HyperX Cloud.
Edited by: "nice-new" 3rd Jun
All Krakens have a nice build but my TE edition hurts my head a lot. Used to have the pro version too. Regret buying it. Wish I brought a HyperX product. For me personally, not worth a purchase. Sound is ok, mic is ok. Nothing that really stands out to me apart from the build which is awesome. Wouldn't recommend.

Apparently ‘true 7.1’ is all just gimmicks anyway.

What you want is good audio rather than lots of audio apparently. It’s exactly the software that achieves the surround sound, not having 10 drivers built into each ear.

HyperX cloud flight. Cracking good wireless headset. Good weight, good headband, decent long battery life, decent mic. Comfy, not too warm by good sound isolation. I can't fault it. It also doubles as a headset for work calls.
Edit, spotted you mentioned durability. I've dropped off the couch once or twice, it's survived but it is not super hardy. Would defo still be messed up if sat on, but I think that could be said for any headset. Headband construction is good overall. Good solid clicks to set fit.
Edit2 works perfectly with switch and ps4 as well as pc, if that matters to you.

Can't fault this approach either. I have a nice set of sennheiser mid level audiophile cans (458s I think) and a shotgun mic for seated pc gaming. Nice warmth out of the sennheiser that just aren't there in a gaming headset. A pleasure for music too. Love my wireless cloud flight for some couch gaming though. Totally depends on his use case I guess. Pros and cons

True7.1 likely means heavy and uncomfortable, many crappy cheap speakers. Not had good experiences with more recent razer products
Does Anyone know if this is a V1 or V2?
If only you could get this kind of thing using Bluetooth. Seems most of the decent headsets with a boom mic are always wired.

Heat for "Seems like a Kraken price" alone
Website is dead?!
Worth paying £15 more for the 50mm drivers.
