The Razer Kaira Pro headset offers good sound quality after fine-tuning, exceptional mic sound capture, and a long battery life. However, noise isolation performance is poor.

Product Snapshot

Overview

First launched in late 2021, the Razer Kaira Pro for Xbox headphones are a mid-tier option designed exclusively for the Xbox One, Series X, and Series S consoles. The wireless, over-ear headphones have a detachable boom mic and are capable of Bluetooth connectivity. Their customizable RGB lights also give them an edge over many of the best gaming headphones.

The headphones last up to 20 hours with RGB lighting off, and their volume, microphone, call, and music controls are located along both sides of their ear cups. The headphones boast custom-tuned 50mm Razer Triforce drivers, but they take a lengthy 3.7 hours to reach full power, similar to the Razer Kraken V3 Pro.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Razer Kaira Pro for Xbox Gaming Headset can be configured to deliver a well-balanced sound with even mids, highs, and good bass accuracy through its companion software. Its detachable microphone also offers impeccable recording quality and clarity, essential for in-game dialogue. The well-built headset allows for up to 20 hours of gaming, but if you want even more power, check out our Razer Blackshark V2 Pro review. Thanks to their padded earcups and headbands, users stay comfortable even when gaming for long hours.

A low 41ms latency through its non-BT connection keeps videos and audio completely in sync, but its noise isolation performance is sub-par, as ambient noise remains fairly audible.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Sound quality is highly configurable.
    • The Razer Kaira is great as a gaming headset and delivers a boomy sound profile with muddy mids and underemphasized treble out of the box. However, these can be fine-tuned through its companion app.

  • Exceptional microphone
    • Mic quality is excellent, as speech sounds clear and well-detailed during in-game dialogue and while chatting. Its high microphone quality places it above the 25th percentile compared to other alternatives in that category.

  • Very comfortable
    • Weighing only 332g, the headphones don’t hurt your head, and the earcups are padded with soft cloth.

Reason to Avoid

  • Poor noise isolation
    • Ambient sounds consisting of chatter or rumbling traffic noise are easily picked up, as the headphones don’t have a noise-canceling feature.

Unfortunately, the Razer Kaira Pro for Xbox headphones don’t ship with a case for carrying, but there is one that comes with the Razer BlackShark V2 X headphones. The V2 X headphones also have much better sound leakage performance, but they don’t have a companion app, which the Razer Kaira Pro Wireless headphones do. The wired nature of the V2 X headphones also makes them slightly less convenient to use compared to the Razer Kaira Pro for Xbox headphones, which are wireless. Get to learn more about the V2 X headphones in our Razer BlackShark V2 X review.

The Razer Kaira Pro for Xbox headphones are wireless, while the Razer Kaira Pro for PlayStation headphones are wired. Another significant difference is that the Kaira Pro for Xbox headphones have a companion app that allows for sound customization, but the Kaira X for PlayStation misses out on this. Also worth noting is that the Razer Kaira Pro’s boom mic is detachable, while the one on the Kaira X for PlayStation headphones is not. Read our Razer Kaira X for PlayStation review to see what else they have in store.

The Razer Kaira Pro Wireless for Xbox headphones have a slightly longer 3.7-hour charge time compared to the Corsair HS75 XB Wireless headphones, which take 2.3 hours to get to a full charge. The Razer Kaira Pro headphones also have a companion app for quick sound customization. Owners of the Corsair HS75 XB Wireless won’t be able to adjust their sound output since there’s no app to do so. If these headphones still sound interesting, feel free to check them out in our Corsair HS75 XB review.
