Razer Kraken Gaming Headset (2019) Unboxing

Razer seems to have simplified its naming system when it comes to the new peripherals being released today. The new Razer Kraken is in fact the successor to the Kraken Pro V2, and comes with the same MSRP of £79.99. A lot of features have carried over to this new model, but Razer has also made improvements to the ear cushions, headband padding and microphone – making it similar to the more expensive Kraken TE.
