It’s not Synapse compatible.

Hi JASPERbitGunmetal475, I can give you a little more information as I recently purchased the Razer Barracuda X Headphones myself and ran into this same issue.

While FiszPL is correct (and this info wasn’t anyplace obvious when you or I purchased these headphones) you can still get software from Razer to make EQ adjustments, if that is what you are looking for. Unfortunately, it will cost an extra $19.99, or $10.00 plus tax if you use the coupon on the bottom of the 7.1 app that comes free with the headphones. The software you need is Razer’s THX Spacial Audio.

I was not pleased to find out, after the fact, that this is the only solution. If you want to make adjustments to the audio settings for these headphones, you need to buy this software. Still the sound quality is comparable to (if not better than) the more expensive Barracuda Pro headphones and the microphone is significantly better in my opinion.

First, make sure that your Barracudas are properly charged and turned on. It may seem obvious, but sometimes the simplest solutions are the best.

Next, try resetting your Barracudas and the Synapse software. Unplug any cables or dongles, turn off the Barracudas, and close the Synapse software. Then, restart your computer, turn on your Barracudas, and open the Synapse software again.

If you're still having trouble, try updating your Synapse software and your Barracudas' firmware to the latest version. This can often resolve compatibility issues and other bugs.

It’s not Synapse compatible.

This needs to be labeled properly by Razer. Their other two Barracuda brands are compatible, but not this one. 

It will save alot of people alot of headache
