Dino PC Team Verdict
The original Razer Kraken was the first gaming headset that I ever owned in what can only be described as Razers iconic very green. It was a great headset back then cementing itself as a classic in the peripherals space and has only gotten better since.
The things I loved about the original hold up in the latest iteration of the Kraken. It’s well-padded on both the ears and the top of the head, with memory foam and a cooling gel layer, meaning it’s comfortable even when worn for hours on end. The cardioid microphone picks your voice up clearly and is retractable, meaning the Kraken doubles up as a regular pair of headphones. The overall sound quality is good especially for a gaming headset. The Kraken shining particularly in games such as CSGO where the virtual 7.1 surround sound positional audio is shines, allowing you to pinpoint incoming opponents easily.
Overall, the Kraken remains a great middle of the pack headset and is a good offering for its price.
