Razer Kraken 2019 Ear Cups Too Large For Me

Kk so I doubt anyone else has this problem but basically I just got the new Razer Kraken 2019 headset and hadn’t even considered the size of the ear cushions as a concern for me but clearly I was wrong. I had previously been using the Razer Kraken 7.1 for like, 3 years but that got frilly and unreliable so I needed an upgrade. The cups on the 7.1 were very comfortable for me and fit my smol ears. The cups fit snug on my head tilted with the shape of my head as expected. Yet, with the Kraken 2019 the cups are pretty loose and move a lot with quick head turns etc. I believe it’s the 40mm drive size I’m looking for compared to the Kraken 2019’s 50mm drive (and probably a circular cup size). But I could be completely wrong there. So if anyone knows of a newer headset with Kraken 7.1 (or similar) ear cup sizes I would love to check them out. Or I suppose some smaller cups for the 2019 headset would do.

TLDR: Kraken 2019 ear cups are too big for my ears and I gotta find a newer headset with smaller, circular cups like the Kraken 7.1. And do drive sizes relate to cup sizes?

The Kraken 7.1 V2 and 7.1 both had circular ear cushions, however the newer Kraken 2019 and Kraken TE come with larger oval ear cushions. I think this might be your issue.

You can't buy smaller ear cushions from Razer now, and the only smaller Kraken headset is the Kraken X, but that is a bit more budget oriented and is a lot smaller in general.
I personally love the big earcups. I love that they envelop my entire head. I also love the cooling gel. it feels so cold and good when I put them on. I also don't have that many quick head turns while gaming so I don't really have that problem either. I don't like circular cups to much but that's just me. You could buy the Tiamat which has smaller rectangular cups. But it is an older headset but boy is it a goodie. My brother bought the better of the two Tiamat's. the one with chroma and a subwoofer in each ear. but that, you might like better...
