Razer products are rarely modest. By offering excellent and sometimes unbelievable features their products always tend to reflect the philosophy of gamers. However, this time they have released a fairly simple plug & play gaming headset and claim it to be the most comfortable headset ever. Weighting only 0.65lbs, the Kraken Pro is optimized for extended usage and its targeted audience is professional gamers who play for several hours without any breaks.

If you are in market for a gaming headset, the Razer Kraken Pro is the one to be seriously considered. The blend of black and neon green color gives it a modern style which goes well with the gaming culture. With powerful Neodymium drivers and excellent bass response, its overall sound output is perfect for gaming. It is ergonomically designed and with an optimized weight, retractable microphone, good sound isolation, soft ear cushions and an adjustable headband it offers a good level of comfort.

For sound input, it uses a single 3.5mm auxiliary jack for audio and microphone making it compatible with most handheld gadgets. However, Razer has also bundled an audio/microphone splitter adapter to accommodate computers with separate microphone and headset jacks.

Razer Kraken costs $60 but the retractable microphone is missing from it along with the splitter adapter. The Pro with the added features costs an extra $20. It can be considered an expensive purchase especially when you compare its features with some of the other headsets available in this price range. It even lacks an inline volume control. If you are looking at the Kraken Pro as your next potential headset then I would suggest you to think again. If you rarely use your headset for communication then you might want to let go the Pro version and save $20.
