Razer unveils Kraken Pro gaming headset

Razer has been producing gaming accessories for a long time including some of the best mice, keyboards, and headsets on the market. The company has unveiled its latest gaming headset called the Kraken Pro. Razer says that the Kraken Pro is focused on ergonomics for the head with weight, functionality, and performance being the key attributes targeted in the design.

Razer says that it optimized the weight of the headset specifically targeting the ability for the gamer to wear the headset comfortably for an extended period. The headset has a retractable microphone on the left ear cup that pulls out when you need it and tucks away when you don't. The goal was to allow the user to take advantage of the Kraken Pro at home for gaming and on the go for listening to music.

The headset uses 40 mm neodymium magnet drivers to deliver clear high and mid range sounds as well as deep bass. The headset design has closed ear cups and has plush padding to help isolate the user from external sounds. The Kraken Pro weighs 293 g, which is slightly more than half a pound. The cable that connects to the computer is 4.27 feet long and it ships with a 6.6-foot extension cable.

The headset is designed to fold for storage. The headset connects to any 3.5 mm audio device and has a separate mic connector as well. The Kraken Pro sells for $79.99 and a standard Kraken headset lacking the microphone is available for $59.99. Both versions of the headset will ship in September.
