Description

You hear exactly where the opponent is with the Razer Kraken X Gaming Headset, thanks to the 7.1 virtual surround sound. That is why you win every 1-vs-1 in shooters. The Kraken X only weighs 250 grams, so you often don't even realize that you have a headset on your head. You can talk to your friends via the flexible microphone, which you fold aside to take a well-earned sip of water after your effort. You can control functions such as the volume with the buttons on the headset. This way, you can adjust the headset while playing and you keep going.

    Very good quality gaming headset

    Guilherme Schwingel | 21 August 2020 | Connection type: 3.5mm jack - Black

    • Pros:
      Fair price
    • Pros:
      Good quality
    • Pros:
      Very comfortable and light

    The reason that I recommend this product it is because it has a good quality (sound, price, weight) comparing to the others gaming headsets in the same category.

    Decent gaming headset for the price

    Anna | 23 April 2020 | Connection type: 3.5mm jack - Black

    • Pros:
      Sound in games is good enough. You can hear everything you need to hear.
    • Pros:
      Comparably good microphone sound
    • Pros:
      Weight
    • Con:
      Poor build quality (microphones is not stable,it moves up and down). It doesn't bother me when I play ofc,but still it is unpleasant.
    • Con:
      Sound covers only gaming needs. It is

    As in original kraken, others can hear sound coming from the headset when you turn on mic. However,it should be fixable if you have a good audio chip in ur pc. The mic itself is better than in some of more expensive headsets (like hyperx cloud 2). Sound as usual in krakens has more bass than mids and highs. Satisfactory gaming experience, to be short.

    Microfoon is een deal killer

    Jeffrey Norder | 20 November 2020 | Connection type: 3.5mm jack - Black

    • Pros:
      Super licht
    • Pros:
      Mooi design
    • Pros:
      Goed geluid
    • Con:
      De kabel is erg kort, met een vervelend verleng onderdeel
    • Con:
      Super slechte microphone

    De microfoon is erg slecht, hij pikt geluid van de headset waardoor goed afstellen vrijwel onmogelijk is. De geluidskwaliteit hiervan is ook erg ongefilterd en haperend. Als je de mute knop indrukt horen mensen het geluid van je game/computer dus deze is vrij onbruikbaar. De microfoon was hier zelfs zo vervelend dat ik een andere headset haal. Als je veel met vrienden/online praat. Haal dan een andere headset. Het geluid is verder niks miss mee.

    Good value if on sale
    • Pros:
      Volume slider
    • Pros:
      Sturdy construction with thick padding
    • Con:
      Not much adjustibility

    The headphones are big with ample cushioning. The cable and microphone are stable. Sound pick-up appears to be good with reasonably good audio, although not full surround sound on Xbox one. Simple plug-and-play with additional cables.

    • Pros:
      Comfortable with glasses
    • Pros:
      Lightweight
    • Pros:
      Sleek design
    • Con:
      Microphone does not retract
    • Con:
      Volume and mic controls are in awkward locations
    • Con:
      Ear cups don't rotate

    Razer's Kraken X Gaming Headset is a fantastic entry-level gaming headset that has all the features and quality a gamer wants in a value-based headset.
