When on sale it is the probably one of the best budget Wireless Headphones you can get for consumer gaming. The ear cups are soft and wrap the ear comfortably. The battery life is great and lasts for a long time at times I forget to charge it and it will usually be good to go for a week on a charge. Thankfully you can charge from dead and use the headphones.
Sound wise it is "Good" but I have found more times than I'd like where my team hears audio queues and I don't which I am not sure why. It might be software settings for the headphones or not but even then the razer software is kind of finicky. the THX sound is alright but sounds very flat. Also the volume wheel on the headphones are easy to turn but it so easy to turn that sometimes I catch myself leaning into my chair and the volume suddenly breaks my eardrums or I can't hear anything at important moments.
In terms of comfort and battery life you have found the right headphones. But for everything else that headphones are used for (sound) it is underwhelming and is out shined by cheaper wired alternatives. If wireless is a must I recommend saving a few more dollars for a better pair of wireless headphones.

Solid battery life. Charges quickly. Can use while charging. If you really work at it you can get them sounding pretty good. Mic sound quality is okay. They work with Linux. The ear cups are better, larger, and more comfortable than other brands or even previous Razer headphones.
They're not size adjustable so if you don't have a giant planetoid of a skull, maybe pass. The controls are right where you grab the headset when putting them on/off so the volume dials (there are two) are always getting knocked about. I will sometimes accidentally mute myself when putting them on. I can't see the red mute LED ring on the tip of the microphone when I have the headset on and mic fully extended. (I much prefer the mic's that you flip up and out of the way). Speaking of, you know what a gamer really needs? Even more volume controls and multiple more devices to troubleshoot in the Windows control panel, the Razer software, and your game / Zoom interface. It can take an hour to get these things working correctly for any game and then don't unplug, reboot or quit.
The THX spatial sound is pretty cool when it works, but it's not supported by all (most) games. If that's the selling feature you're most interested in then be sure to check if your favourite game is supported. If it is, you'll enjoy this feature. Did I mention that they're freakishly huge! This could be a pro or a con depending on how other headsets feel to you. Most other headsets feel really small to me. This one feels big, which I like, but you might not. I would rank them a full point higher if the buttons were placed almost anywhere else. Razer software isn't as bad as other competitors software. They create a separate voice device for your voice chat channel and the game volume channel. They have a separate volume blend knob to help manage the blend (like guitar pickups). It was an interesting idea, but it does create a much more complicated user experience. If you're looking for plug and play, these are definitely not that. If you love fine tuning options, these deliver - except on sizing for some reason. Do these come in S,M,L and XL or something? I must have the XL.

Ear cups are very comfortable and don't cause my ears to sweat as badly as previous models have with the Kraken series. Great sound and surround audio.
Battery life takes a bit of a hit if you have the LED logos enabled, but last much longer when turned off.
Aside from battery life when the logos are lit up, this is a fantastic wireless headset, perfect for the dedicated gamer looking to gain an advantage when relying on positional audio cues. Price is a little higher but the quality and durability make up for it.

Bass sound, comfort, wireless
battery length, feel a bit heavy
Nice sounding headphones. Wanted to try the wireless feature for first time and love it. Don't think I'll ever go back to wired headphones again. Ear pieces are huge....feel a bit weighty. Plus don't look in mirror...you get the princess lea look with these super huge speakers hanging off your noggin!
