The original Kraken was a stable headset for many gamers but the mid-range headset designed for eSports was at an affordable price for the gamer who is looking above the budget headset line. The Kraken V2 as the name suggests improves upon its sibling with 50mm drivers and a move away from the plastic frame to an aluminium body.
Build wise, the Kraken Pro V2 is a pretty solid combination of materials, The Kraken Pro v1 was a little bit too plastic-y but when it was released most headsets were. Their latest variant is simple and sleek thanks to the aluminium frame which makes it not only light at 322g but sturdy, and if you were a fan of the varied colour offerings, there’s still bright green, black and white to choose from. Bulky and LEDs are common in gaming but these are only a little bulky but they’re not the sort of headphones you’ll probably wear in public but as a device designed for eSports, you can let them off.
At the top of the headset is a leathered type material for the headband with the Razer logo embossed into it and underneath is a small piece of foam for comfort. Sitting on top of my head for a while I failed to notice any discomfort from the headband, which is quite loose compared to other headsets. There are plenty of options for resizing the headband and you should be able to find the right degree of tightness, allowing you to game for extended periods.
