As tech grows, so too does price. And while there's a technophile in all of us, not all of us can afford the oft exorbitant prices that come with trying to stay ahead of the curve, or even be in the conversation. Thankfully bigger companies are seeing this and are readily offering up entry-level gear to get you started on your hardware journey, and there's no better place to start with a managed budget than in the headset sphere.
Today brings us to Razer
's foray into this entry-level space (admittedly not its first rodeo) with the Kraken V3 X
. Here's a snippet from our review:
Palatable audio comes across in a slightly bassier headset than adjustable options in-market with the Kraken V3 X. While Razer shouts from its rooftops that the V3 X supports 7.1 Surround Sound, this option is for PC only and requires Razer software, which is frustratingly EQ-less here and while it serves its purpose, we’d be lying if we said it was a head above other 7.1 options -- especially those not glued specifically to PC. Again, as an entry-level item, what you get is more than what you’ll fork out for the headset, and in its microphone department, which uses Razer’s HyperClear doodads for arguably its strongest feature, the Kraken V3 X makes up for a number of other shortcomings. In fact, it’s one of the key buying points we find hard to look past as voices go out crystal clear.Click here for our full Razer Kraken V3 X review
