    Hi,
    I am looking for a the best headset for PC gaming. It can be wired or wireless that doesn't matter to me. I have looked into all Razer headsets and cant decide which is the best for me. I don't know which is the best for each price. I don't have a budget but I don't want to spend more money when I can spend less and get a product that is still really good.

    Any suggestions?

    I was looking at these. Other than bass how is the overall sound quality? Also how is the mic quality?

    man o' war is my choice.
    its really comfortable and its mic is super clear, retractable, and its very flexible. its also comfortable wearing it too.
    i really can't compare it to other headsets (since its the only razer headset i own), but i do recommend buying it.

    The mic's pretty good for a headset & the sound isn't bad at all once you play with the setting a little & it's extremely comfortable. I'd say the Kraken 7.1 v2 is the best overall headset. For more money the Thresher have the same drivers & specs but are wireless.

    I switched from a Kraken to a Man O' War for very specific personal reason. I have a super short neck and bump on my left shoulder from a (twice) broken collarbone which made the cord under the left cup bend when I wore it, eventually fraying the rubber connector at the connection of the cord and the headset (diy glue was a decent temporary fix but I recognized the eventuality - I was going to ruin them). It's not a problem I'd expect many people to have so please don't take this as a criticism. On the contrary, I loved my Kraken. I don't have great aural range but in my amateur opinion the sound was slightly better on the Kraken than my MOW, but the MOW has a major positive I wasn't expecting: its really lightweight. Lighter than my old Kraken. I'd say that makes the MOW more comfortable for long-term use, at least in my experience.

    I hope I've thoroughly confused you and helped not all in making a decision...

    If you want wireless 7.1 headset gaming on the cheaper price but amazing quality, get there. If you have 250+ dollars, maybe get the Thresher for XBOX 1 or PS4 (I know that the XBOX 1 is PC compatible, not sure about the PS4 version)
    The mic is great, the lighting is nice, and yes the base is great (Tried them at a friends house, I'm saving for these or the Man o' War wireless.)

    I will take this into consideration @bcompanda

    Yeah I think the Razer Tiamath is the best one, I had the opportunity to try it out since one of my friends bought it and it's literally the best one so far in my opinion.

    I have never tried these, but I have watched the video, and if you want bass....These are literally designed for it. They look great, but I have no experience with them though, so take his word for it

    I suggest you to take it cause they are better too on ps4 controller and the sound it looks like very very aggressive

    That would be the bass part then. They look awesome!!!!! (What do you mean in your comment. Grammar is a little weird.)

    I think if you are not on a budget you should go for the Razer Tiamath and it also depends on use.
    Do you want it primarily for music or gaming?
    What games do you play?
    If you play FPS(first person shooter) games such as Overwatch, CSGO, COD, Battlefield, ...
    You should go for a 7.1 surround headset such as the Razer Taimath 7.1 or (what I have) the Razer ManO'War 7.1.
    The Razer ManO'War 7.1 has a wired and a wireless version and they are both really good, the only thing that's a really obvious difference is that surprisingly there is no Chroma lighting on the wired version while it does cost you around $120.
    For this price I would expect Chroma but that's the only "bad thing" about it because it's the best headset I've used!
    The mic is perfect for anything except singing ;) but also for youtube videos because there is no noise on the mic.
    You just have to find the right settings because it isn't the best out-of-the-box but with some tweaking in Razer Synapse, you couldn't wish for more!
    The wireless version is great too! No loss of quality and if you want to go further wireless, you have a 10m (I think?) wire with an extender so you can go even further!

    So yeah, you can't go wrong with the ManO'War 7.1, wired or wireless!!!

    The ManO'War's are great. I use my wireless ones every day and they work well and are comfy.

    Kraken Pro V2 for wired.
    ManO'War for Wireless.
