  • The sound quality is generally highly competitive for this class of gaming headsets.
  • Like other Razer products, these headphones offer one-of-a-kind features such as foldable ear cups and a retractable microphone,

CONS

  • The Kraken Pro is showing its age. It lacks sound surround, active noise cancellation, and wireless options.

  • Some users might find the over-the-top design to be bulky or garish.
Razer's Kraken Pro gaming headset packs a lot of comfort into an affordably priced product. These headphones include features that are unique to Razer, including fold-up ear cups and a retractable microphone. Yet the product is beginning to show its age--it lacks capabilities such as wireless connectivity and active noise cancellation. Other aspects of the Kraken Pro, such as its audio prowess and aesthetics, are a matter of taste. Some critics praise the headphone's sound quality, while others find it to be weak at the mid and high ends.

As we've come to expect from many gaming headsets, the 40mm driver inside each ear cup has been heavily tuned for bass. Gunshots explode outwards and action sequences had huge presence, but when the chaos dies down it reveals a weakness in the high-end.

Headsets have come a long way over the past decade.
