Razer Kraken Pro Review

Introduction:

If you are into gaming and computer hardware and you don’t know about Razer then you are missing a lot. Razer is one of the leading peripherals manufacturers, famous for their gaming headsets, keyboards, mouse and other products. Recently, they’ve also started producing gaming tablets and laptops. But that’s not what we’ve on the review table today. At Gamescon 2012, Razer launched a few new products and one of them was their new Kraken and Kraken Pro gaming headsets.

Today, we have the Kraken Pro headset with us. It offers a comfortable design and great quality of sound. Over the years Razer has developed many great headsets like Orca and Carcharias. These offered excellent sound quality but never proved to be quite as ergonomically designed and comfortable as the critics wanted. However, this time Razer has put its headset through a meticulous design process and believes to have reached the pinnacle of comfort with this headset.
