Gaming with headphones posed a major challenge of identifying the distance and position of say, rustling of vegetation, where the shots are from and whatnot. A challenge which the Razer Kraken Ultimate gaming headphones aims to eliminate with THX Spatial Audio technology.
The advanced positional audio solution promised pinpoint accuracy and “greater than 7.1 surround sound.” It delivers sound in a 360-degree sphere and adjusting the virtual speakers to match the audio source’s actual distance and location in-game.
It should be a much welcomed feature for every gamers, except for me because, I have absolutely no sense of distance and direction whatsoever.
In addition to THX Spatial Audio, Razer Kraken Ultimate further features custom-tuned 50 mm drivers, pro-grade active noise canceling microphone, cooling gel-infused oval ear cushions with hidden eyewear channels, highly visible backlit ear cups powered by Razer Chroma, USB digital connection, and a sturdy aluminum and steel construction, featuring a padded bauxite aluminum frame headband.
Razer Kraken Ultimate gaming headphones can be had, as we speak, for $129.99.
Razer Kraken X USB features custom-tuned 40 mm drivers, 7.1 virtual surround sound, USB connection, bendable cardioid microphone, green ear cup lighting, oval leatherette cushions, and weighs in at mere 275g (9.7 ounces). Razer Kraken X USB is available now and it retails for $59.99.
