Razer Kraken Forged Edition 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 http://www.razerzone.com/store/gaming-accessories , but we are unable to supply any internal parts or repair guides.|
|Where can I find the serial number on my Kraken Headset?|
|You will find the serial number located under the left ear pad of the headset. (The side where the microphone is if your version of the Kraken has one).
To view the serial number carefully peel back the foam cover of the ear pad. You will then be able to see the serial number as in this photo.
The serial number should start with two Alpha characters and be followed by 13 characters. You can also find the serial number on the bottom panel of the original retail box.
|Does the Razer Kraken Forged Edition come with a microphone?|
|Yes. The Razer Kraken Forged Edition comes supplied with two interchangeable 3.5mm audio cables. One has an inline microphone; the other is purely for audio only.
Here is how it works:
- Audio Usage: Devices with 3.5mm audio jack
- Audio + Microphone Usage: Devices with 3.5mm audio + mic combined jack (works with all portable audio/mobile/computing devices inccluding the iPod, iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire, Android phones, Razer Blade, Macbook Pro, or today's newer Ultrabooks.)
|If I wanted to use the inline microphone on my PC do I just plug the inline mic cable into the line-in jack on my PC?|
|The inline microphone will only work if your PC has a single combined audio-out/line-in 3.5mm jack. If your PC does not have such a jack you will need to purchase a splitter adapter at your local electronics dealer.|
|What is the included 1/4 inch connector used for?|
|It allows you to connect to recording instruments, DJ consoles, amplifiers or any hardware with a 1/4 inch port.|
|I hear echo/feedback when using my Razer Kraken Forged Edition. How can I solve this?|
|Here are a few suggestions that may help.
- Be sure the microphone is fully extended when in use. If you try to use the mic in the stored position you will pick up sounds from your speakers.
- Ensure that "Listen to this device" is not selected under Control Panel >Sound > Recording > Properties > Listen
- Check that your sensitivity levels are not set to max or boosted too much under Control Panel >Sound > Recording > Properties > Levels
- Ensure that only one voice chat application is in use while in-game
- Check that you are configured to use the proper microphone under Control Panel >Sound > Recording > Select proper Microphone > Set Default Device/Communications Device
- Ensure your computer supports the combined audio jack. If not, please use the included audio/mic splitter cable.
|The microphone is overly sensitive and picks up sounds other than my voice. How can I fix this?|

|The microphone isn't sensitive enough. It will only pick up my voice when I turn up the microphone to max sensitivity through windows. And when I do that, it adds static and distorts my voice. How can I fix this?|

|Why does Razer require a proof of purchase?|
|Razer must verify that the product is within the specified warranty period and that it was purchased from an authorized reseller. Products purchased from unauthorized dealers are often used, counterfeit, re-boxed, defective or gray market goods. These units may also not be designed and packaged to work in your country and may not meet all legal and safety requirements. Razer will not be able to honor a warranty on products purchased from an unauthorized dealer or that are out of the warranty period. If you purchased product from an unauthorized reseller, all support and warranty issues should be directed to that reseller.|
