    I have the Razer Kraken. However, they really hurt my head since it is larger than the headphones. Also, I have glasses and they squish my ears against my frames which hurts after about 30 minutes. What do you guys think the best headphones for larger heads and glasses are? I would love to hear what you guys think, even if it is not a Razer brand.

  3. For in-ears I'd say the Hammerhead pros are pretty awesome, I use them to game now and it works out really well. Plus none of the pain that comes with over-ear headphones.

    Yeah, with the Hammerheads you not only get great sound quality but you do not have to worry about issues like head size and stuff of that sorts. If you are set on over-ear then take a look at the Razer Blackshark. They are a stretchier than the Krakens so shouldn't be a problem for a "big head" and I have a friend who wears them with glasses and I have never heard him complain

    Just make sure that you like to wear in-ear ones. I for example can´t stand using in-ears for longer than half an hour.

    If you want a fairly inexpensive (<$100) decent Bluetooth headset I would recommend the LG Tone headset.
     
  7. Yeah that is a problem for some people but as a testimony in case you consider it I wore my Hammerheads for 7 hours last night while I was gaming so that is quite some extended wear.

    For myself, I have gotten LG tone pro, It is a really good pick.

    It connects to anything, anywhere and anytime. Only con there is the mic is a little iffy. but it's still good all in all.

    I was looking at the HammerHeads but I didn't know how they compare to the Adaro in ear or even over ear. I have no problem with in ear or over ear, I just can't have on ear headphones. How do the HammerHeads compare to the Adaro? I know the Adaro is 1mm bigger, but does it make a huge difference? Thank you all for the input!

    I know a lot of people like Krakens, but after 20 minutes they start to give me a headache due to the size and also my glasses. That is the only reason I am looking at an alternative.

    Klipsch s4I rugged earbuds are what I use at the gym and for my phone and tablet. Astro's are extremely comfy even with glasses. From what I have heard the Razer Tiamats are also good for glasses wearers.

    I just got the Kraken Forged Edition on sale for $149 they are the only Krakens I've used and they sound awesome I kinda wish it had a retractable mic insted of the inline mic but it's not a deal break i highly recommend these I let my friend use them and he purchased them soon after

    I use the tiamat 7.1. They are nice and have a good size range. I have a average head size and have the sizing set down pretty low. Plus they are nice and soft even if i wear my glasses. Plus the sound quality is amazing.

    I want the Tiamat 7.1 but they are so expensive compared to other brands that have a much better sound range. Sennheiser has headphones for $150 that have a range of 8-26000hz and all of Razer is 20-20k hz

    I just dont know what to do.

    Hammerhead is a bass-bud, so the bass is deeper compare to Adaro. Also Adara do not have mic but Hammerhead Pro does.

    I am currently using a Tiamat 7.1 and it is great. I have glasses too but the ear cushions of the Tiamat 7.1 is extremely soft and it is memory foam if I remember correctly. But you do need to take note that Tiamat 7.1 is heavier in weight compare to Kraken.

    Well now I am also looking at the new mic they released. What do you all think of that? I never have owned a desktop mic and I love the look of this one. Do you think it is worth it? Any input would be amazing!

    Even though the mic from Tiamat 7.1 is not extraordinary, but I think it is enough for me to communicate with my friends through Comms. So, I guess I will pass for the Sieren. If I am not wrong, the Sieren and Tiamat 7.1 should be same price. If you are short of cash, you might need to consider which one is more need/suitable for you right now.

    If you were someone already really dedicated to recording and streaming, absolutely, but for something entry level the blue snowball works just fine.
