Razer Kraken X Review – Beginner Headset with 7.1 Sound

They have already proven that Razer can do good headsets in several tests. As recently shown in our test for the Razer Kraken Tournament Edition. With the Kraken X there’s now a beginner’s headset that even offers 7.1 surround sound and costs only 60 Euros. But can this headset also be for this price?

Design and Features

The Razer Kraken X gets along without a lot of bells and whistles and pompous packaging with a lot of nonsense in it. On the box you can see only the headset and the features. Inside the headset is hidden including the Y-splitter, because the headset itself only has a combined 3.5 mm jack plug. At 1.3 meters, the cable isn’t exactly long either, so the splitter cable of 1.5 meters is almost obligatory for the PC. But it also includes an important piece of cardboard. Under the scratch field there is a code for Synapse 2.0 to be able to use the 7.1 surround sound at all.

With the Kraken X, Razer takes a minimalist path and even renounces his own recognition feature – the colour green. The headset is completely in plain black. Even the manufacturer’s logo on the ear cups is simply black. It is only accentuated by a mesh grid around it. But this is only for cosmetic purposes, because the headphones are completely closed.

The controls are located on the left earpiece. A switch for the microphone to mute it, and a volume control that could be bigger. Otherwise, the knob is easy to turn and has enough resistance. The mute switch also has clear feedback.
