Razer’s Kraken gaming headphones are not hard to miss. Sporting a neon-green finish, the distinctive and chunky £55 cans may look every bit the true booming headphones, but do they sound it? We put them to the test.
Out of the box you of course get the foldable headphones, complete with a generous detachable extension cable and the usual 3.5mm analog connection jack.
Despite being predominantly plastic, the Kraken’s build quality is assuringly sturdy and appears durable. The extendable headband can be adjusted to your preference, with confidence that the plastic won’t give. On a whole, the overall unit feels flexible enough to withstand plenty of day-to-day wear and tear.
Accessory maker Razer — known for its gaming mice, keyboards and headsets — has an ever growing array of mid-range products available, all hoping to tick the demanding boxes of PC gamers. Razer’s Arctosa Gaming Keyboard is one of company’s more economical products, catering to those with lower budgets and touted as a “bare essentials” device.
