Gaming in discomfort most certainly won’t help you win the war, and definitely won’t help you achieve a new high score.  That’s why finding the perfect chair with the correct height and alignment to your TV or computer screen is paramount.  The same can be said for peripherals, including controllers, joysticks, and for the sake of this post, headsets.

Razer is billing the Kraken Pro as the world’s most comfortable gaming headset.  They don’t outright say that, but through comparison to their Carcharias they’re insinuating such a claim.  That being said, they’ve taken into account fit, weight, and balance when designing these headcans.  Included are a set of 40mm drivers with neodymium magnet drivers that “are tuned for clear high- and mid-ranges as well as deep bass for powerful lows.”  These are housed inside of a plush circumaural padding, which Razer says provides superior sound isolation.  And because it’s a “pro” version, they’ve included a fully retractable microphone with an omnidirectional mic that can work with both your smartphone and gaming PC.

The Razer Kraken Pro next month for $80. The non-pro version will sell for $60.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
