    The Man'O'War headset does have some issues like the little top plastic piece getting loose and the tabs that hold it in place breaking off, then hurting your head.
    I am not big on the whole wireless thing, but I do not think wireless headsets are really worth it for gaming on PC, since you do sit right next to the PC in most cases and all it really does is clean up a bit of cable for over $100 more then the wired version.
    So, I would say it is not worth it, in fact most wireless headsets are not worth it unless you use it on console or something, where the cord could be an issue if it is too small. If you want a wired one though, I would defiantly recommend the Kraken 7.1 V2's, they are great, and they do make the Man'O'Wars in a wired format but I think they still have that issue with the top plastic piece, although they do look quite good.

    They are really useful if you own pets that demand you open the door to your room every few minutes, can be a pain in an Air Conditioned room to keep getting up and removing the headset to open the door and repeating it over and over again.

    But yeah unless a company somehow nails wireless headsets kind of like what Astro has done but for cheaper than $250 its not worth buying right now.

    Yeah, I was looking at them when I went to buy those Kraken 7.1 V2's. I would have considered the Man'O'Wars more if I know they never had issues, I didn't really want to go though that pain.
    The next wireless headset Razer Releases, Maybe a V2 of the Man'O'War's we have now I might consider buying if they have an okay price. I could see paying like $20 more for a wireless headset, not almost $100 CAD :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:.

    Yeah same. I would pay around $100 USD for a good wireless pair if it has no issues right out of the box and can last atleast 1 year (maybe a metal headband). Wouldnt pay over $150 for a wireless headset cause at that price just spend 50 more for a good pair of Astros. Atleast they will last longer and can be paired with any console just in case you want to switch, not to mention the included amp.

    I like the Man'O'War and Kraken 7.1 V2 because they are more recently added and more performing than the old ones. But i love my Kraken USB, especially the rubber head support that ties the speakers. As i seen many complaining about the plastic one from Man'O'War and Kraken V2, i wish a newer version of those will launch but with a more flexibile head support.

    The new kraken does not have the plastic headband, it has a nice cloth like one. I liked my old Kraken 7.1 V1's, but those ones are so much better. Thats the thing good about Razer right now, most of the first generation products are now being remastered for a generation 2, that fixes most of the issues that people had with them, so, now we just wait for a Man'O'War V2 :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:.

    The thing is that the Kraken V2 seems a bit too plumpy and fat to wear them on your head. The old Kraken is more skinny so to speak, and i'm talking about that head support. It's beggining to look like a helmet in the future, but the headphones are still the same size which is good. The point is that if you wear them during the summber your ears will probably stick to your head and eventually catch fire.

    They weigh around the same IMO, But the other ones are a bit more skinny because the padding on the ear cushions is not as thick and such. They do get a little bit warm when you are in a warm area, but it is nothing that bad. Something tells me they might bring the cooling-gel air cushions to the Kraken by stock when they go around to update the headset again.

    I really need to test a pair of those V2 to be able to tell the differences properly, but the design is not that bad, i'd gladly buy them.

    What do you think about Razer Thresher (if you can use it one PC)

    Jenjar Well-Known Member

    I hear it is pretty good, I think the Thresher TE is the one for PC, XBox and PS4, meanwhile the others are just for there own platforms (I don't know if one of the wireless ones work with PC).

    I more than enough of a variety of headsets, but the Thresher TE (it is wired) is one that I'd really LOVE to own.
    My goals are to have that one and to also get the new pink quartz Kraken with the kitty ears. (with all the matching peripherals. lol) :big_grin_::big_grin_:

    I'm not an expert about this but headset for xbox isn't compatible for pc?

    I don't think the wireless ones work with PC the best, since they are made for the consoles on there own. They might work on PC, but I am not sure if they have any kind of Synapse software for it.
