Razer takes great care in the presentation of its products and this is another example of that. There are not too many things inside the box, but those that are there are very well placed and well cared for.

When we open the box we find the headset, the adapter cable for the audio input and output to travel through a single mini-jack and a section with the company’s slogan “For gamers, by gamers”.

Within this section we find a mini guide to the headset and a small and a small cover letter signed by Razer’s co-founder and CEO and creative director, Min-Lang creative director of Razer, Min-Lang Tan.

All this endows a presence and a sense of quality to our Kraken.


These gaming headsets come with custom 50mm drivers for powerful and clear sound with immersive bass, let’s take a look at the specific technical data of the audio input:

  • Frequency: 12 Hz – 28 kHz

  • Sensitivity (@ 1kHz): 109 dB
  • Input power: 30 mW

The headphones have an instant response of great sound quality, with enveloping bass and well-adjusted treble.

As for the microphone, we find a retractable system so that it does not bother us when we do not want to use it and a unidirectional audio output, so that we can be heard clearly.

As for the technical aspects of the microphone, we find the following:

  • Microphone response: 100 Hz – 10 kH<
  • Signal to noise ratio: > 60 dB
  • Sensitivity (@ 1 kH<): -45 +- 3 dB

This microphone comes with a noise cancellation system that makes it only activate with our voice to avoid lower sounds that could enter to disturb the conversation when we are not talking to our fellow players.

As for the sound quality of the microphone is an aspect that gives the size, replicating our voice with a high degree of fidelity.

Design and ergonomics

The design and ergonomics is one of the strong points of these helmets, as they come with cooling gel pads that help us not to raise the temperature of our ears in long gaming sessions.

In addition, the texture of the lining is quite comfortable and the pads cover our ears giving us a good margin of isolation from outside sound.

The headband is adjustable by means of a toothed system and it comes with an aluminum comes with a bauxite aluminum frame with thicker padding to increase durability and decrease the to increase durability and decrease weight.

For gamers with glasses , there is a pressure reduction system so that the temples do not disturb the headset when wearing the helmets.

Connectivity and buttons

The headset connects via a standard 3.5mm minijack audio cable with a length of 1.3 meters. It also comes coated with a protective mesh that greatly improves durability and also makes this peripheral more beautiful.

In terms of functions we find an analog volume wheel and a mute button and a mute button for the microphone.

My impressions of these headphones

If anything can be said about these helmets is that they have left me with good sensations and that the quality/price ratio is very good.

These helmets will not have all the specifications of the most expensive headsets on the market, but those that it has are very well implemented and cared for and makes me very happy with the Kraken for consoles.
