    Do you do real life things alot whilr listen music? Easier carry Hammerheads with you.
    Krakens are more for gaming but you can also grab them to outside. Hope so this helps :)

    Cool! Thanks for your help. But since you said that Krakens are more for gaming, Can hammerheads do it too? But since your advice is good maybe ill buy a Kraken Pro. :D

    There is a big difference of a Headset and Earphones.

    Tell me on what/where do you want to use them? Gaming? Music? Etc

    Did your hammerheads broke too fast?

    Then get a Kraken. I watch some reviews in YT Hammerhead pro gets broke fast like the cheap earphones but the quality is awesome.

    Haven't had a problem with mr Hammerheads, I have had them for almost 2 years and they work like new. They have good sound for an earbud headphone, I use them all the time for University and at the gym.

    I have Kraken 7.1 and they are awesome for gaming but anything else and my Hammerheads are better. Music and movies sound a bit odd in Kraken sometimes.

    I've had my Hammerhead pro headphones for 8 months without any issues, and I too take them everywhere (the gym, university, work, gaming at home, etc.) and no issues yet. The only signs of wear are the black coating on the aluminium has been chafed off a little bit (can't see it unless you look really close) since I'm lazy and just throw them in my pockets/bag when I don't use it.
    Honestly, if you should get the Kraken if you don't have an active lifestyle, but if you plan on carrying headphones around with you everywhere, I'd suggest the hammerheads. Either way you go, I think you'll be fine. That's just my two cents, I hope I helped.
     
  11. I personally have both and it depends where you are using it. I like using my Hammerheads when I travel or when I go out and about because it's easy to carry around and they have great audio quality. I like to use my Razer Kraken Pros when I'm at home and i'm listening to music and gaming because they have better sound quality (in my opinion) and they're pretty comfortable and they also have more bass which i like.

    Can't really compare earphones with headphones... A better question would be Hammerhead or Adaro in-ear
     
  13. You can be like me and get both, Kraken for gaming and Hammerhead for on the go!

    I have had both and i would say the Hammerheads since they don't make you sweaty and they are still gaming quality

    My kraken pros 2012 model have lasted me a full year without any issue and can vouch on how durable they are. If you worry about the hammerheads, which I unfortunately cannot comment on since I do not yet own them, try getting the adaros or the kraken (non-pro version without the inline mic). As others have posted though, if you look to be mobile and need something portable, the hammerheads or adaro in-ears would probably suit such needs better.

    pretty much if you use a desktop computer at home or other location, the krakens. but if you game on a laptop , either if its at home, work, on the go, in class, then the hammerheads would be best for portability and less clutter than it would be to carry around the krakens.

    remember if getting the hammerheads,doble check if they are the pros. you don't want to order the other ones without the mic. unless if you have a professional mic already.

    HH can game too, but while not meant for it, Kraken will outpreform them in every single way (except of portability).
