Why did Razer stop designing strong headsets?

    Seriously why? Let me list a few problems i have with each headset that they have
    Tiamat v2 - exposed cable on the sides (broke for me returning it to the store tomorrow)
    Kraken v2 - exposed cable on the sides
    Man o War - headband holders are plastic so it breaks in just a few months
    Electra v2 - exposed cable again

    I really need a headset that wont break on me in around 5-6 months so here are some fixes
    Exposed cable - just simply don't expose them make the aluminium a bit ticker and run it thru that if it doesn't move at all it cant break that easly
    Weak headband holders - Just make them out of aluminium seriously how did you not figure that out

    Go for Krakens, they are the most resistant pair i know.

    i will probably go for the man o war then just fix the headband with some aluminium wire when it breaks

    I don't know....I had Razer Kraken and cracked on left side. Razer has the best headset sound but they must stop making them only from plastics.

    I'm just about to buy some man o wars, I want wireless and heard they're pretty great besides the headband issue, heard it was reinforced/fixed in newer models, is this true or still just need to be slightly more gentle with these than other headsets?

    Do you want them to use PVC, wood, or something?

    More aluminum parts would help, to be fair

    They design them to break so you will have to buy a new one. $$$
    I own a razer blackshark headset from years ago. It has a stainless-steel head ban and an aluminum mic boom, and it still works. My brother managed to destroy his though. The design still has several vulnerable parts that could have been designed out if they wanted to or had a proper product engineer.

    I don't think they want to lose customers. However, I do own several Razer products and that seems to be the case.

    What products? Haven't had any issues with mine, except the headband material peeling off my old Krakens.

    i have had a set of krakens for a couple years and no problems...theyve survived 2 moves and a whole lot of traveling...not sure what you guys do to your headsets, but i bring my krakens on trips instead of my actual audio headset just cuz they're more durable :sweat_smile:
