Razer Kraken Tournament Edition Headphone: Best-In-Class Gaming Peripheral

Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan said: “Since founding Razer, we’ve pushed to make products with unprecedented technology to give gamers the greatest advantage possible. At the same time, our long history working with the world’s top esports athletes gives us unique insight into what features work best and should be conserved or fine-tuned. Our newest Razer Kraken Tournament Edition headset, BlackWidow Elite keyboard and Mamba Wireless mouse are perfect examples of how leading-edge technology combines with time-honored design for the win.”

David Tse, Global Esports Director for Razer, added, “This next generation of Razer tournament gear enables our @TeamRazer esports athletes to even further dominate the competition through functional superiority. Each of these peripherals are at the top of their family, delivering extreme performance and customization for our most discerning gamers.”

Gamers with the Razer Kraken Tournament Edition can now experience pinpoint positional sound with THX Spatial Audio, and extreme comfort with cooling gel ear cushions for long gaming sessions.

The Razer Kraken with its signature Razer green headband has been a staple for gamers and esports professionals since 2012. This latest evolution is the complete competitive gaming solution for delivering full audio controls via a USB Audio Controller. The controller allows on-the-fly bass level adjustment, and a customized mix between game and team chat volume through Game/Chat Balance.

The headset has been designed with cooling gel-infused ear cushions, hidden eyewear channels, and an improved ultra-soft padded headband for complete comfort during long gaming sessions.

The Razer Kraken Tournament Edition is the world’s first gaming headset to support THX Spatial Audio – creating realistic depth and immersion by simulating 360° sound with pinpoint accuracy for greater awareness during gameplay. This technology combined with custom-tuned 50 mm drivers provide clarity, a punchy bass, and the promise of a remarkable competitive gaming edge. With its 3.5 mm combo audio jack, the Razer Kraken Tournament Edition is also cross-platform compatible, working with the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices alike.

All told, the Razer Kraken Tournament Edition provides better sound customization, unrivalled positional audio and long-lasting comfort.

THX Spatial Audio
THX Spatial Audio is an end-to-end positional audio solution that delivers improved support on stereo, 5.1 and 7.1 content, and is future-ready with support for ambisonics and object-based audio.
