Razer has made a great many headsets for gaming over the years and the Razer Kraken is one of its most popular, and right now there’s a deal on it over at Best Buy. You can currently pick up the wired version of this headset for just $50 when it’s normally $80.
Having used the Kraken in the past for many years, it’s a solid headset for gaming and the best part about it is that it doesn’t cost a whole lot. Even at full price. That being said Razer has made some updates to it since back then. The Kraken now comes with cooling gel infused ear cups. They were already nice and comfortable but they’re even better now because they help keep your ears cool. And trust me when I say that having cool ears while you wear your gaming headset for hours on end is an important factor if you value comfort.
There’s also a retractable microphone that you can tuck away in the headset. Then when you need to use it you can simply pull it back out. As a wired headset you can use this with pretty much any platform. Including PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch. Additionally Razer has updated the headband to have thicker padding for extra comfort. It has however kept using the bauxite aluminum frame. And that’s a good thing since it makes the headset more durable. Best Buy has the Kraken in both Black and Razer Green colors but only the Black model is available for the $49.99 price. The Razer Green color is also sold out.
If you’re looking for a new gaming headset that is both affordable and good quality, the Razer Kraken will suit your needs.
