    There's so many different headsets from Razer and I've been thinking of getting a new one soon. What would be the best one to get?
    I really like chroma, but I would take sound quality over anything else.
    I'd prefer to have a headphone jack instead of a USB, which probably eliminates all chroma options.
    I don't care about color of headset, but I don't want wireless.
    I don't plan on using the headset for anything but my desktop PC.
    I'd like to have the best possible sound quality.

    I can't really figure out, in terms I can fully understand without trying to think too hard so late at night, what the differences and advantages are between the Kraken 7.1, Kraken 7.1 V2, and Kraken Pro V2. I also tend to see more expensive as somehow superior, so is there something better than the Kraken family?
    Again, if there's a sale any time soon, I want to be prepared and know exactly what I want to get and know that it's the best choice.
    Thanks for all the help.

    I use the kraken pros v1, they work better than my past 2 headsets and can be used on the go :D

    The Kraken Pro V2 is probably your best bet with what you're looking for. If you're not needing the microphone, the Adaro headsets are pretty amazing as well.

    Can the Pro V2 be used with an older system? I think I still only have a 35mm jack. Not totally sure though. I just know my computer is about 4 years old now.
    A headset microphone is not a necessity.

    The Pro V2 is a 3.5mm jack so it will work with anything that accepts it, since drivers are not necessary. The 7.1 Pro v2 uses USB and might not work with some older systems, however, a 4 year old system isn't that bad, so it will most likely work, but you said you wanted a 3.5mm jack.

    Ah, okay, sorry, I got a little confused there! I can't pick apart all the differences between the headsets and keep the names straight, lol.
    So 7.1 is surround sound, right?
    What's the sound quality difference between the Pro V2 and the 7.1 Pro V2?

    Depends on your dac, if you pc got a good dac or maybe you got an amplifier an aux connection will be better for you
    if not, they both will sound pretty much the same, maybe the 7.1 a bit better since it has a good range of eq settings and other options to improve the sound, so you can adjust it better to what you like, f.e. more bass, less bass etc

    If you want the ultimate, then get the Tiamat 7.1. It uses several 3.5mm jacks, which are at the back of your PC, and one USB for power. There are 5 drivers per cup, and there is a microphone too.

    I have no clue what my DAC is like or how to find out :/
    Yeah? I was also looking at the Blackshark because of sound isolation and removable mic etc... Is it 7.1 sound though?

    Well, after having bought the Kraken Pro (V1) and the Tiamat 7.1, tried the BlackShark and the Adaro DJ, My choice is clearly the Tiamat 7.1 but they cost a lot :')

    I have the Razer Man O War, and it is one of the best one's yet.
    after wearing, you start having a massive hate for wired headset. It's good for recording, gaming, and listening to music. and the best thing about it being wireless is that when you waiting to find a game, and you want to get food, you can just leave it on and go and get food, and you can listen if your game is ready, so you never miss an accept. :)

    What about the Man O' War!? Does anyone here have it? If someone does, what are your thoughts on it?

    DANGIT! I like that idea! But I HATE wireless things sometimes because I always seem to get interference in my place, as well as having to charge/replace batteries. But I love the idea of being able to walk away and still hear the dang game or music or whatever!

    Okay, new plan. Can I suggest a new headset idea to Razer? Can they make a chroma enabled headset, wirelessly connected to synapse, with 7.1 surround sound, with the sound isolation and detachable microphone of the Blackshark, with the ability to be a wired OR wireless headset? You know, you plug it in for wired, but can detach the wire any time without losing connection. As long as the USB is still plugged in. You gotta charge it somehow anyway.

    that is pretty much the man o war tho,

    there is a wire to charge the headset, and you can use it while charging. (the wire is not very long) and the connection is so good that I can walk out side my house and still here music, and that is like 10 Meters away... And it also has 7.1 surround sound as well as a microphone with really good customization in synapse and it feels great!

    Iol i just talked about it right on top of your post! anyway it's the best!!!!

    My cousin bought the Man O War headset, and he let me try them when I went over to his house and they were absolutely amazing. Its so comfortable and the fact that they are wireless with little to no latency makes them all the better.

    If chroma and surround sound doesn't bother you and you want 3.5mm audio jack then you clearly go with the PRO V2.

    Well, I do really like chroma and would prefer it, and I'd also like to have surround sound! I also kinda like the sound isolation of the Blackshark, but idk.
    I think it'll still be a little while before I actually get a new headset though.
