Unleash the Kraken! Well, I always wanted to say that. Razer has been extremely kind and sent us their one of a kind audiophile headset for review. The company has a reputation of making the best gaming peripherals and there are hardly any disappointments when it comes to performance and aesthetics.
The Kraken Forged Edition is Razer’s attempt to make the best headset for audiophiles. A company which is dedicated towards gamers has slightly shifted its course with this headset. We already have big names in the audiophile headset market such as Sennheiser and Pioneer. The competition is tough but Razer is known for innovation so let’s see what we have in our hands.
Razer Kraken Forged Edition headset gives a premium look at first glance with sleek packaging and the huge carrying case protecting the $300 headset from all kinds of damages. The use of brushed aluminum is becoming a tradition for Razer and Kraken Forged Edition is no different. The ultra-premium and sleek finish on the headset distinguishes it from the rest. On the other hand, custom tuned 40 mm neodymium drivers produce crisp sound with booming bass.
The versatile design of Kraken Forged Edition allows it to be used for any need. The headset comes with a swappable cable system with and without the omni-directional microphone. When it comes to comfort, Kraken Forged Edition packs premium leather padding inside the closed ear cups and on the adjustable headband.
The neodymium drivers of the headset deliver a frequency response ranging from 20 to 20000 Hz on impedance of 32 Ohm with sensitivity of 100 dB at 1 KHz. The omni-directional mic features a frequency response ranging from 50 to 10000 Hz with -38 dB sensitivity.
