Razer Kraken Tournament Edition: $55
If you want something a bit more high-end, the Razer Kraken Tournament Edition is on sale. It has the same 50mm neodymium dynamic drivers (32 Ohms, 12 Hz - 28 kHz) as the lower-priced Razer Kraken, but adds THX Spatial Audio, which Razer claims is more powerful than 7.1 surround sound. If you're able to spend a little more, this headset is worth considering over the Kraken.

The Kraken Tournament Edition has been selling for $75 since October and is now at its lowest price ever.

Razer Kraken - was $80, now $50 (opens in new tab).
The Razer Kraken offers 50mm neodymium dynamic drivers (32 Ohms, 12 Hz - 28 kHz) with a 3.5mm connection. It offers good sound for the price, but nitpickers may critique its treble and upper ranges. Make sure to get it in black or green for the lowest sale price.
In our Razer Kraken review (opens in new tab), we celebrated the value the 3.5mm headset offers. Of course, now that it's at its lowest price ever, the value just got even better. Sound quality is good for the price, whether you’re gaming or listening to movies or music. Important for long-time gaming, it also boasts a cozy fit with cooling gel in the ear pads, plus a nicely padded headband.
For $50, don’t except a lot of features. We also found the headset’s drivers (32 Ohms, 12 Hz - 28 kHz) to excel with bass but lack when it came to treble and upper ranges.
