When it comes to reliable and comfortable headsets for gaming the Razer Kraken series is definitely up there - as seen across the current Razer Kraken and the Razer Kraken Tournament Edition. With a new lightweight build, focus on surround and friendly AUD $89.95 pricepoint - the Razer Kraken X aims to bring that Razer sound mainstream.

Perhaps the biggest change comes with the aforementioned lightweight build - with the Razer Kraken X being 250grams. There will be two models one for PC and a Razer Kraken X for Console edition. 7.1 Surround Sound is limited to the PC version and will be software based using the impressive THX Spatial Audio tech and requires a Windows 10 64-bit OS install. Surround Sound will be adopted by all Razer headsets moving forward too.
