    I had Razer Kraken 7.1's. Loved them. Decided to buy Razer Kraken Tournament Edition. They seemed to be an upgrade. I didn't like them at all. The sound was not as good as the 7.1's and the mic sounded awful. I could never get it to sound good. There is something wrong with the THX. I returned them and found a new pair of Razer Kraken 7.1 v2. These are amazing headsets. They sound much better, mic works great. Razer made a mistake discontinuing these IMO.

    Latest software update killed the THX channel, have restarted the USB module and various other things but the channel doesn't work.

    I have the Kraken TE but on the Synapse 3 it is called Razer USB Audio Controller but I've seen a video on Youtube and in the video it indicated Razer Kraken TE. My question is why is it called Razer USB Audio Controller on my Synapse 3? Is it because of an update? Other than that it works perfectly fine. Like the one posted by SrMurky on 3rd page. Why is mine listed as Razer USB Audio Controller?

    Mine says Razer USB Audio Controller as well.
    Just like you said, maybe it is to do with the update, or the way how Razer wants to display the product. I would also like a display name "Razer Kraken TE"

    On the synapse 3, it detects the rectangle usb audio controller. So technically synapse 3 is not detecting the headset. Try plugging the headset audio jack to the pc audio output.

    I'm not sure whether you have the usb audio controller, if you do, there is a throttle switch which allows Bass adjustment. On the Synapse 3 go to Audio - Equalizer and adjust the bass settings. Otherwise it might require some technical support.

    Synapse ist mittlerweile genau so überfüllt wie iTunes. Sehr träge und einfach komplett zu viel. Könnte man nicht eine abgespeckte Version machen? Z.B. eine nur für Peripherie Geräte von Razer. Diese hätte sicher nur die hälfte an Volumen, wäre deutlich schneller, besser auf die Hardware ausgelegt und bei Update könnte man schneller Nachbessern als wie das komplette Synapse Tool. In den letzten 3 Wochen kammen wie viele Update? 3-4? Entweder wurde meinen Kraken Tournament nicht mehr über USB erkannt, Chroma am Blade ändert selbst die Einstellungen und wechselte Farben, die ich gar nicht aktiviert hatte. Meine Deathadder zog immer ein wenig nach links oder kurze Unterbrechungen beim Micro vom Kraken Headset. Das sind nur einige Fehler gewesen. Im Moment geht es aber bestimmt nur bis zum nächsten Update.
    Daher wäre ich für eine "Auskopplung".

    Synapse is now just as crowded as iTunes. Very sluggish and just completely too much. Couldn't you make a slimmed-down version? For example, one for peripheral devices only from Razer. This would certainly only have half the volume, would be much faster, better designed for the hardware and with update you could improve faster than the complete synapse tool. How many updates came in the last 3 weeks? 3-4? Either my Kraken Tournament was no longer recognized via USB, Chroma on the blade itself changed the settings and changed colors that I hadn't activated at all. My Deathadder always pulled a little to the left or short interruptions at the micro from the kraken headset. These have been just a few mistakes. At the moment, however, it will certainly only go until the next update.
    Therefore, I would be in favour of a "decoupling".

    Well mine says "THX Spatial - Synapse" lol.

    And yeah, I'm having this infamous problem of everything sounding way too quiet. Youtube, videoclips from .avi etc, games - all. Even while everything maxed out from Windows 10 settings, even the little mic vs ingame audio slider.

    Not fun.

    Ok. Nun setzt meins auch bei Netflix aus. Synapse beendet dann auch alles. Keine Chroma Tastatur, und das Headset wird nicht mehr erkannt. Ich muss das komplette Notebook neu starten. Macht echt kein Spass mehr.

    Ok. Now mine is also on Netflix. Synapse then ends everything. No Chroma keyboard, and the headset is no longer recognized. I need to restart the entire notebook. Really no more fun.

    nah the headset itself is worse than the kraken 7.1 V2, i bought it yesterday and i cant wear it with my glasses on for more than 5 minuites, the sound is also considerably worse even with thx enabled and after playing around with the EQ for half an hour

    I wear quite thick glasses and after a while of getting use to the new headset, this Kraken TE feels really good. Try to adjust the headset, it may take some time until you find best setting for the "collar" going over your head.

    Go to the Synapse -> Razer USB Audio Controller -> Mixer (Where all the "apps" are like Chrome, VLC Player, some of your games etc) -> scroll down a bit and press the "set default" -button.

    This cured the problem I was having:

    -My problem was that when I chose "THX Spatial - Synapse" from the Sound Settings in Windows 10 there was no sound, no in Youtube, not in games etc. Sounds were only working when I chose "Razer Audio Controller - Game" but then the THX Surround feature was disabled. It was quite huge difference in FPS games like Battlefield etc.

    After I found this fix from Google, THX Spatial Synapse -setting began to work immediately!!

    jea idk it better today, but the sound is just clearly worse than the kraken 7.1 v2 even after playing with the EQ and every avilaible setting for hours, which i didnt have to do with the 7.1 v2 which sounded amazing out fo the box and only got better when working with synapse 2.0 EQ, synapse 3.0 really feels worse to use for me.

    Cant comment about the sound as I use mine only for casual FPS gaming like Battlefield and stuff. I'm not a HiFi guy what comes to the quality of the sound, I'm only interested about the "situational awareness" (foot steps etc.) in these FPS games.

    But yeah, after like 2 weeks of ownership now I can use this Kraken TE for hours in my head without any issues with my eyeglasses.
