Since its inception, the Razer Kraken has built a reputation as a cult classic within the gaming community. It made its mark as a staple at countless gaming events, conventions, and tournaments. We’ve now improved the features of this crowd favorite to not just give its audio quality a boost but also make it more comfortable so you can game all day with the headset you love. This is the new Razer Kraken.

The 3rd generation Razer Kraken is the wired headset for competitive gamers. Its large 50 mm drivers deliver powerful and clear sound. It’s engineered for long-lasting comfort with cooling-gel cushions. A retractable microphone ensures your shotcalls are always delivered in absolute clarity.

 

Features

  • Custom-tuned 50mm drivers - Enjoy superior sound clarity and deep, punchy bass for a wide soundscape. Listen to every detail from subtle footsteps sneaking up behind you to climatic explosions that blow you away.
  • Cooling gel-infused oval ear cushions - Cooling gel-infused ear cushions reduce heat build-up, while the leatherette rims provide superior sound isolation. The oval design ensures that they house your ears comfortably.
  • Retractable unidirectional microphone - The unidirectional microphone offers crystal-clear team communication. It is retractable and flexible, allowing you to pull it out of the ear cup when needed and adjust for proximity and position.
  • Hidden indented eyewear channels - A compression in both sides of the ear cushions allow the frames of your glasses to sink in, so no pressure is created on the sides of your head.
  • Bauxite aluminium frame with thicker padding - The Bauxite aluminum frame of the Razer Kraken is lightweight, flexible and extremely durable. A thicker headband padding relieves even more pressure on the head for long-lasting comfort.
  • 3.5mm audio cable with in-line controls - Control the volume or mute the mic so you can stay focused in-game. The extension splitter cable provides full audio and mic access for platforms requiring separate audio output and mic input ports.

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.
