The weight (or lack of): This thing hits the scales at 0.3 lbs. That's almost one quarter of the weight of my old CM Storm Ceres 500, and less than half the weight of my Tt eSPORTS headsets, the Dracco Captain and the Shock 3D 7.1.
Portability: Largely related to the size and weight directly, this headset won't make any difference in weight as a permanent addition to your laptop bag or carry-on luggage.
Bass in your face: With extra bass support, the Adaro Stereos is great for movies, bass-heavy music and casual gaming sessions like World of Warcraft levelling, Battlefield 4 shenanigans and League of Legends drunk solo que.
Lack of folding: For a headset that's so portable, I really wish the ear cups would fold in.
Lack of structure: Because the headset is so light and small in size, it feels a little flimsy. Although it seems robust to the eye, my hands tell me that it might be easily crushed if it somehow makes its way to the bottom of your bag or if its sat on by the lovely passenger next to you on the flight.
On-ear design: Make the headband a little bigger, enlarge the ear-cups and you have yourself a winner here Razer.
As I said before, make the headband a little bigger, enlarge the ear-cups and this audio accessory will be a real winner. Besides this, it's certainly a very viable travel option if in-ear headphones are not for you.
Being fairly comfortable with lots of deep bass and a plush, expensive feel, the Razer Adaro Stereos is worth the $94.99 price tag, however, if they could lower this is around $80, I think we'd see them sell off the shelves in a crazy fashion.
I personally recommend this headset for anyone that LANs with a laptop, travels a lot for work or needs something to use on the run - congratulations Razer, you've made something that I genuinely do like - as long as it's used for its specific purpose.

The Bottom Line: A quality travel companion, this headset would make a great addition to your laptop bag or carry-on luggage. Bass is strong, it's light and comfortable, but the lack of treble may prove a bit of an issue for some gamers.
