Choosing a sound companion for our gaming marathon sessions can be tough, especially with the many brands offering a multitude of confusing options seemingly designed only to part us with our hard-earned cash.
So, let’s cut through the mumbo-jumbo and get down to basics – what exactly makes a gaming headset a gaming headset? Is it the eye-watering RGB lighting? The futuristic yet often-times tacky “gamer aesthetic”? The booming over-emphasised bass intent on popping a vein in our forehead?
Here’s a hint: it’s none of the above.
At Razer, we’ve spent more than a decade working with top esports athletes around the world to define just what exactly gamers look for in a high-performance gaming headset.
We think we’ve nailed it with our Kraken Pro series of headsets. In fact, the Kraken Pro V2 is the headset of choice of three-time League of Legends World Champion Faker, who is widely regarded as the best League of Legends player in the world.
Here are just a few reasons why:
It looks good
The Razer design language and our signature triple-headed snake with Chroma lighting is unmistakable in any setting, striking fear into the hearts of your opponents. The refined aesthetic tells people you’re more than just another basement dweller, and the cans comes in a variety of colours to showcase your personality, from serious black and to pure white to playful pink.
It sounds good
A loud and rich soundstage places you right in the center of all the gaming action, and the built-in retractable mic ensures that your team’s shotcalls are heard with crystal-clear clarity. The sound is perfectly balanced to provide an immersive experience, and your pick of either round or oval ear cushions blocks out ambient noises to isolate you in perfect focus.
It feels good
We’ve focused our attention to the tiny boring details such as clamping force and the density of ear cushions to improve your comfort. Made of Bauxite aluminum, the entire frame of the Razer Kraken Pro V2 is lightweight, flexible and incredibly durable. The ear cushions can even come layered with cooling gel, memory foam, and heat-transfer fabric so you can withstand the rigours of long gaming sessions.
It plays well with your style
The Kraken has something for everyone. Play in stereo or 7.1 surround, and rock it in stylish Razer green or Quartz pink. They’re compatible with consoles*, PCs, laptops, televisions, tablets, mobile phones and basically any device with a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, letting you own the game on every platform.
Whichever Kraken Pro you pick as your companion, you’ll step right into a world of immersive sound that pairs great with any game you care to throw at it, from games with cinematic audio quality such as Battlefield 1 and Witcher 3 to first-person shooters like Overwatch, PUBG, and Fortnite. Even racing games like Forza Motorsport 7 come alive and pull you right into the driver’s seat!
