The Kraken Ultimate is the new headset from the Razer family of devices.

As the main reasons for upgrading to this headset, the brand finishes off with its tuned 50mm speakers to produce a more natural and realistic sound curve, and THX space audio technology, which provides a better perception of the direction of sound.

In competitive games, communication with the team is also essential. For that very reason, the Kraken Ultimate has a microphone with active noise cancellation, canceling out unwanted background sounds so that your companions can hear your voice better.

Comfort for long gaming sessions is ensured by the aluminum and steel structure, which supports the two large gel-infused pillows to offer players durability, lightness and well-being. The cushions also have passage areas for the spectacle rods.

The Kraken Ultimate makes use of Razer’s Chroma RGB system, but it has something new. The lighting, which supports 16.8 million colors, appears under a metal frame.

The price of the Kraken Ultimate is € 149.99, and is already available in the Razer online store and in authorized resellers. For those who do not want to spend so much on a headset, there is the most economical version Kraken X USB, which costs 69.99 €.

The Kraken X USB version has 7.1 surround sound on the PC, an adjustable cardioid microphone, leatherette cushions, and 40mm speakers.
