Razer is well-known for its gaming peripherals from gaming mice to keyboards, and even gaming audio devices. The company has a brand new addition in the Kraken lineup – the Razer Kraken X.
The company is claiming the Kraken X as the lightest gaming headset, measuring 250g. It also comes with a feature that first appeared on the Razer Nari, which is a channel for glasses to be built into the ear cushions.
What’s different with the Razer Kraken X is that it features virtual 7.1 surround sound when used with a Windows 10 64-bit PC. Razer has also announced that this feature will be a standard feature moving forward for all future Razer headsets priced under $99 (approx. RM410).
Headsets above $99 will instead get THX Spatial Audio as standard. For fans who already own an older model Razer Kraken, you can get virtual 7.1 surround sound by registering your serial numbers here.
The Razer Kraken X is priced at RM269 and is already available on the Razer Store. You can choose from Classic Black or the version with blue highlights which is called the Razer Kraken X for Console.
