Razer Kraken Pro V2 eSports Gaming Headset Review

Razer is one of the leading brands when it comes to PC peripherals, with a following so large and often so loyal some even joke that they’re a cult. This is no bad thing for Razer, and with a huge collection of award-winning products to their name, it’s easy to see how they’ve grown so much over the years. One of the key components in this growth was their popular Kraken headset, and now Razer is back with a new and improved model, the Kraken Pro V2!

Equipped with new larger and more powerful 50mm drivers, a bauxite aluminium frame, thicker padding, a new headband design and more, the Kraken Pro V2 promises to be bigger, better, louder, strong and more comfortable than the original, and that’s the kind of upgrade we love to see!

50mm audio drivers custom-tuned for balanced in-game audio and communications

“The Razer Kraken Pro V2 is outfitted with larger drivers than its predecessor to offer a louder and richer soundstage than ever before. You’ll feel like you’re right at the center of all the gaming action, while ensuring your team’s shotcalls are heard with absolute clarity.”


Unibody aluminum frame for extended durability

“Made of Bauxite aluminum, the entire frame of the Razer Kraken Pro V2 is lightweight, flexible and incredibly durable. It has been tested extensively to withstand the rigors of pro-gaming.”
