Razer has unveiled two new headsets with improved design and custom-tuned drivers that meet the high demands of game enthusiasts.
The Kraken Pro V2 and Kraken 7.1 V2 are Razer’s second generation gaming headsets equipped with 50mm drivers for balanced audio and communications.
The Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 also features an advanced 7.1 virtual surround sound engine that allows complete customization to pinpoint positional audio specific to an individual gamer.
Constructed with an all-new unibody aluminium frame, the new headsets have been tested to withstand drops, added weight, rough handling, and more.
To offer unparalleled comfort, the headband is designed for balanced weight distribution and reduced clamping force. The ear cushions are reportedly larger and softer than before. They are also interchangeable, with a choice between circular or oval shaped-designs.
“Pro-gaming athletes of today will excel thanks to the Razer Kraken V2’s powerful 50mm custom-tuned drivers, highly durable unibody aluminum frame and redesigned ergonomics for maximum comfort,” says Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan.
Besides the design and hardware, Razer has also enhanced the microphones on both the headsets to provide a “unidirectional recording pattern”. The Kraken 7.1 V2 has an active noise-cancelling digital microphone that lets gamers cut through the noise at LAN events to deliver clear communication to teammates.
The Kraken Pro V2 will retail for $80, while the 7.1 V2 will sell for $100.
The announcement of the new Kraken V2 headsets comes just two days after Razer introduced the DeathAdder Elite, a gaming mouse with top optical sensor. The DeathAdder Elite has the highest measured resolution accuracy (RA) at 99.4 percent, making it the fastest and accurate gaming mouse available in the market.
