    Alright, so I am wanting to get a new headset and seeing as I have developed "Razer Fan Boy Syndrome" a very contagious.... syndrome. I want a razer headset.

    So which headset should I choose? I have a Blue Yeti so my main search criteria are, color (my set up is black and blue) audio quality, and price 100$ or less.

    I was looking at the Kraken Chroma, I am a big fan of Chroma, but are there any other headsets I should look at?

    I really want good audio quality above all, but color is also super important.

    I think you should get the Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma, it has the best sound quality in my opinion and you can change the colors I believe for looks

    You may want to look at the entire Kraken lineup.

    Anyways, the only two options you have in terms of "headset" and "no microphone" would be the Razer Kraken or Razer Adaro Stereo.

    Some earbud choices would be the Razer Hammerhead (2 models, one has in-line mic, other doesn't), and Razer Adaro In-ear (no mic).

    An awesome in-between choice would be the newly released Razer Kraken Mobile. It has an in-line microphone, and is designed for mobile usage. You can easily transfer your gaming headset with you on the road.

    Some choices with a microphone:
    Razer Kraken Pro (2012 version, Neon version)
    • Most basic version of the Krakens. Has a retractable microphone. Connects via 3.5mm jack (can connect to phone).
    Razer Kraken USB
    • Essentially the most basic digital (connects via USB, thus, cannot connect to phone) version. Doesn't have retractable mic, but still has mic
    Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma (Here's the Classic (lights are only capable of blue, not Chroma)).
    • Essentially the best digital Kraken. Has a retractable microphone.

    As for color, I would recommend gong with either the Blue Razer Kraken Neon, Razer Kraken 7.1 Classic, or the Razer Kraken Chroma.

    Here's a little comparison of each:
    Blue Razer Kraken Neon - Analog headset, can connect to phone.
    Kraken 7.1 Classic - Digital (USB connection). Essentially the Kraken 7.1 Chroma, but limited to only blue lighting (perfect for your situation).
    Kraken 7.1 Chroma - Digital. Capable of 16.8 million colors. This way if you ever want to change your setup's lighting scheme in the future, you have 16.8 million color choices :D.

    TL;DR (I don't blame you): Go for one of these:
    I think you'll really like the blue in the Neon Krakens.

    Would definitely recommend the 7.1! The mic is awesome compared to the Kraken Neons.

    Oh yeah the mic is one of the greatest headset mics I have heard.

    If you got the USB ports for it I highly recommend the Kraken Pro 7.1, chroma if you like colors. Just my personal recommendation but @Lafar 's post is pretty in-depth on the breakdown of the Kraken line up.

    I have a Razer Blackshark and have really enjoyed it. If you increase your max price of a $100 by a bit, you might want to consider this headset. you can sometimes save a bit of money by purchasing razor products from amazon.
