Razer Announces Redesigned Kraken Headset

Razer, the leading lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the all-new Razer Kraken Pro V2 and Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 gaming headsets. They bring a comprehensive list of new updates to the original design to meet the increased demands of eSports athletes and enthusiast gamers today.

50 mm audio drivers for balanced in-game audio and communications

Improved audio performance in the Razer Kraken V2 headsets center around two custom-tuned 50 mm drivers. These are larger than those found in previous generation Kraken headsets, delivering a wider frequency range that is perfectly balanced between in-game audio and team communications.

The Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 also features an advanced 7.1 virtual surround sound engine that allows complete customization to pinpoint positional audio specific to an individual gamer.

Unibody aluminum frame for extended durability

The Razer Kraken V2 headsets are constructed with an all-new unibody aluminum frame that is more durable and flexible than other commonly used headset materials.

It has been tested extensively to withstand drops, bending out of shape, added weight, rough handling, and more. The result is a headset that is truly ready for all the rigors of pro-gaming.

Designed for maximum comfort and zero fatigue

The headband was designed for balanced weight distribution and reduced clamping force to maximize comfort during lengthy gaming sessions.

The ear cushions are larger, softer, and better sound-isolating than before. In addition, they are easily interchangeable, with a choice between circular or oval shaped-designs* allowing for a personalized fit.

In addition, the new ear cushions feature special inmold channels which enable specs-wearing gamers to wear the headset free of strain after extended game play.

*Oval shaped ear cushions sold separately.
Crystal-clear communication

The microphones on both the Razer Kraken Pro V2 and Kraken 7.1 V2 offer a unidirectional recording pattern and convenient retractable design.

Unique to the Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 is an active noise-cancelling digital microphone, activated via Razer Synapse, which lets gamers cut through the noise at LAN events to deliver crisp, clear communication to teammates.

“We designed the Razer Kraken V2 headsets to deliver the best eSports-focused experience, Pro-gaming athletes of today will excel thanks to the Razer Kraken V2’s powerful 50mm custom-tuned drivers, highly durable unibody aluminum frame and redesigned ergonomics for maximum comfort.” –  Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO.
