About a year ago we took a look at Razer’s Kraken Tournament Edition headset, which we really did enjoy. It was however designed for professional gamers, hence the name “Tournament Edition”. For those looking for a more polished home solution Razer has the new Kraken Ultimate Edition. This sits as their flagship Kraken gaming headset and brings along with it many of the features that we saw in the Tournament Edition, but also adds in an active noise-canceling microphone, RGB lighting on the earcups, a USB-only connection, and controls on the headset itself rather than on a controller on your desk. Is this the ultimate gaming headset? Read on as find out!
The Kraken Ultimate comes in Razer’s typical retail packaging. On the front we have a picture of the headset and some of the main features are listed. Flipping over to the back many of those features are detailed.
Getting everything out of the box all you have is the Kraken Ultimate headset, and user’s guide, and a small note from Razer.
