Razer Barracuda HP-1 Support

How do I clean my Razer headset?
We cannot say with certainty what type of dirt and debris may be on your product, or how certain cleaning products may react with it, but we have had good luck cleaning Razer products using commonly available monitor cleaning wipes. To clean the body of your Razer headset please take a monitor wipe and use gentle wiping motions. Do not scrub the surface of your Razer headset.

When cleaning the earpads on your headset, take extra care to not get any liquids inside the earcup and onto the speaker itself, as this may damage your headset.

My Razer headset is out of warranty. Is there any way it can be repaired?
Razer products are designed to work well beyond when the warranty has expired. However, If you feel your headset is having issues we first suggest trying the headset on another computer/source to insure the issue is with the headset and not something within the computer system or source. If you have narrowed the issue to the headset itself there is not really a cost effective repair center that would be able to assist you. Razer does make available some basic external spare parts at , but we are unable to supply any internal parts or repair guides.
Do you have spare parts available?
We do not carry internal parts such as mouse sensors. However we do have certain spare parts available for purchase from the Razerstore: here
