The first thing you'll notice about the Kraken Pro is its garish appearance -- one color option is a bright neon green with black accents, the other black with green accents -- but place them on your head and you'll find the sound anything but garish. Destructoid said "the audio itself comes in both clear, and loud," while PC Mag noted it "handles bass very well." The microphone is just as good, with Gaming Shogun saying that "your teammates will be able to hear your chatter, loud and clear." However, a gaming headset is no good if you don't want to wear it. Fortunately, this is a gaming headset you'll want to wear, and wear for a long time, as Gaming Shogun calls it "one of the lightest and most comfortable I have ever worn." If you're working in an environment where you'd rather not draw attention to yourself -- like an office -- you might want to pass on these cans, but with good sound and a great price for a 2.1 headset, you'll be perfectly pleased to take these to your next gaming tournament or LAN party.
