Razer Kraken Tournament Edition Review

Razer gaming headset review. Updated 2019 Amazon pricing, audio specs, and review - using scores built around ratings such as volume control, material quality, sound quality, battery life and noise cancellation. Are these Razer headphones right for a PC gamer?

Should you buy the Razer Kraken Tournament Edition?

PCGameBenchmark has reviewed pretty much every PC gaming headset available on Amazon. We've ignored some of the smaller and generic brands. We've filtered to only show the best gaming headsets wireless and wired available to buy right now - this Razer gaming headset made our 2019 list.

Now's a great time to buy a new PC gaming headset. So many games are enhanced with great audio, there are always Razer deals to be had (no need to wait for Black Friday 2019) and there's a massive range to chose from. High quality sound is super important when you’re playing and the speakers built into gaming monitors are pretty rubbish. If you’re looking to hear someone creep up on you in Fortnite or love the bass on Apex Legends, you need a proper immersive audio experience and the privacy that brings.

This kraken te - black headset weighs 0.9 lb (0.41 kg).
