Hello! Thanks for reading and for the question.

I agree with you that the Thresher has been strangely ignored by review outlets. It’s the same case with my local retailers. There’s one store a few towns from me that will, very occasionally, have the Thresher Ultimate in stock…and that’s it.

Strange, because most stores around me carry a wide range of their products.

I’m actually going to suggest you check out the Kraken Pro V2(my review at launch)! It also has nice big drivers with an even response, a good mic, and it starts at $80. It now ships by default with the oval ear cushions, which are very comfy, and according to this page if you scroll down, those Thresher cooling cushions will also work on the Kraken.

The Kraken V2 also includes a splitter cable in the box.

I also reviewed the USB version, which has an even better mic, as is the norm for Razer’s digital products.

At one point I considered writing a re-review of the Kraken with the newly included cushions, but I couldn’t quite justify it because it felt silly.

I like that Razer now has a wide variety of headband, ear pad, and design options in their headset line, and at reasonable prices too. They’ve really expanded their line in the last year or so.
