Razer unleashes the entry-level Kraken X

Razer has unveiled the latest addition to the Kraken family; Razer Kraken X. This entry-level and lightweight headset is designed for the average gamer and for all-day comfort.

Weighing in at only 250 grams, the Kraken X is seriously lightweight, but not where it counts; the sound.

Equipped with 7.1 surround sound, this Kraken from Razer should be perfect for most players looking to get into the headset game.

Razer is betting that players will be able to wear this new headset all day. In part due to the 250 gram weight and also thanks to the memory foam ear cushions, glasses-friendly design and adjustable headband.

All Razer headsets in 2019 feature 7.1 surround sound and the Kraken X is no exception.

Delivering a true competitive advantage, the 7.1 surround sound software provides accurate positional audio in the middle of battle. It is a critical gaming element that helps pinpoint where the danger is coming from. 7.1 surround sound is available with the Kraken X on Windows 10 64-bit.

The headset also includes a bendable cardioid mic that suppresses background noise so you always come through clearly. The Kraken X can be used with PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One through its 3.5mm jack.

It is available for $89.95 AUD and comes in black or black/blue.
