Razer Kraken Tournament Edition Gaming Headset Review

Razer’s Kraken line of gaming headsets have been around for a very long time, we actually took a look a the original Kraken Pro way back in 2013. Quite a lot has changed since then, but one thing remains the same, as gamers we want a headset that not only sounds good, but is very comfortable to wear for long gaming sessions. Today we are checking out the latest Razer gaming headset, which is the Kraken Tournament Edition. This comes as an upgrade to the Kraken 7.1 V2, which came out in late 2016. This headset brings with it 50 mm drivers, a USB controller, retractable microphone, cooling-gel ear cups, and of course that Razer style we all know and love. This is actually the first consumer product to feature THX Spatial Audio, which we will dive into as well. Razer has this headset priced at $99, which is a very crowded price-point for gaming headsets. Can it stand out? Read on as we find out…

Special thanks to Razer for providing us with the Kraken Tournament Edition Gaming Headset to review.
