    Hey everyone, brand new owner of Razer Kraken Pro here. I really like the sound and style of the headset, but my head starts hurting after wearing them for some time. It feels like the headset is too small for me, and I have it set as large as it can be. Do I need to grow into them, will they stop hurting eventually, might I have them set to big? I used to own the Carcharias (not the newest model, the one before) and don't remember ever having this issue.

    I've only ever worn the Hammerhead Pros myself (the in ear buds style) so I have no experience with this. However, you are not the first person I've heard mention this issue. I believe that after some use the people I've spoken to said that eventually they loosened up somewhat.

    Hopefully someone around here with far more experience than myself will speak up and offer personal experience. :)

    Be sure to extend it to a bigger size if you need. Also try playing with the way the headset sits on your head. I have the top band tilted forward on my head and I found it to be a LOT more comfortable than if it were just pointing straight up.

    It definitely felt like that at first for me, and I have a smaller head. However, after a few hours of intense gaming, I didn't notice it anymore and it didn't come back. So yeah, I guess it just loosens up.

    Any oversized over the ear I've ever owned required a 'sweet spot' for fitting comfortably for hours on end. My Kraken tends to sit between slightly back of straight up to almost off the top of my head.

    Just remember that this is a heavier set than many others and if it's sitting in a straight up and down line on your head, you're eventually going to feel it. Other than that, the flex in the plastic did relax just a little, but I only ever felt that over my ears ( #fatheadproblems ).

    It takes time to get used to. At first mine weren't comfortable at all but after I found that right place to put them, they were just fine.

    Thanks for the advice! So far the headset has loosened up a little and I found making it a couple notches smaller makes it more comfortable. Hope it will get more comfortable as I wear it more, I really like it!

    Hey, I own a Razer Kraken as well, you'll be able to get used to it after a couple of months, I've almost been wearing them for a year now. Just take in mind if you have a long gaming session, your ears might hurt a bit. Remember to adjust the bars also.

    I know the feeling. First time they felt really tight, but after a while you get used to them, and like you said really good headphones.

    It's basically like wearing in new shoes
