Everyone will know that you mean business when they see the display coming from this mean looking device. In addition to the aesthetic advantages, the Razer Kraken also has a few other nifty tricks up its sleeves.
The high quality padding on the head strap and ear cushions means that gamers will experience zero fatigue and a strain free session. The headband itself was designed for balance and comfort, with the weighting configuration offering exactly that. The ear cushions are noticeably larger than earphones of a similar dimensional similarity, and this is to provide maximum comfort to the ears.
What’s more is the fact that the pads are also interchangeable, with circular and oval shapes being on offer for the discerning gamer to choose from. The personalized fir means that your experience will be customized to your exact specifications. The oval shaped ear cushions will help with any eye wear limitations, meaning that glasses can be paired quite easily with the Kraken.
The only limiting feature of this set is that they are a wire solution, but this is not necessarily a bad thing, as many pro players still favor the wired approach to their peripherals due the perceived lack of latency. An overall well-made product that will offer years of excellent sound quality, and the best in quality reproduction.
