Within the boutique gaming peripheral space, it's hard to find a device that's a jack-of-all-trades. Some manufacturers focus solely on style, while others focus more heavily on performance. The Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma headset comes close to achieving...

Hot on the heals of our recent Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Chroma keyboard review, we have our second product in the Chroma range, the Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma headset (you may want to keep an eye out for a third coming real soon). Although it is always...

The Kraken is a stereo headphone from Razer that offer the possibility to be used in a virtual 7.1 mode. The quality is on very good levels in perfect Razer's style. If you are curious to see how they behave, follow us in our review....

Alright, so wrapping this up, I think I'm not alone when I say that the Kraken 7.1 is one pretty good looking headset. The very modern design with the simple logo and the stealthy color scheme fits well with the rest of Razer's lineup and personally I'm...

Take two ears, a burning desire to win, an ability to go extended periods without sleep, and add the latest Razer Kraken USB headset for an unfair advantage.A little lesson – if your headset has a standard audio jack you are at a disadvantage. USB...

Das neue Kraken 7.1 Chroma punktet mit einem recht gelungenen Surround-Sound. Die klaren Höhen und der kräftige Bass motivieren zum Musikhören - lediglich der Mitteltonbereich könnte unserer Meinung nach etwas ausgeprägter sein. Die positiven Aspekte des...

As an established player in the gaming peripheral market, Razer has always intrigued me with its distinct style. You can thus imagine my glee when I got the chance to review the updated Kraken. Still, having recently reviewed the 7.1 surround sound...
