The Razer Kraken V2 is a USB headset designed for PC, using a USB interface. As a result, it sadly cannot be used with Xbox or PlayStation, but it makes up for it with powerful PC features for gamers who want a little more elegance from their accessories. The soundscape on the Kraken V2 is impressive, elevated with THX 7.1 surround for a cinematic touch that delivers impressive bass and crisp highs. Its large ovular earcups are generously infused with coolant gel too, making them comfortable across lengthy gameplay sessions.
The real reason you'll want this headset, though, is the kawaii factor, owing to its "kitty edition" branding and unique Razer Chroma RGB integration.
Using the Razer Synapse app on PC, you can configure the lights to flash and react to your games in real-time, making it a great headset for anyone creating or aspiring to create content on platforms like Twitch, TikTok, and YouTube. It's also pretty cool as a novelty gift for that fan of all things cutesy in your life, with a powerful sound experience and solid retractable noise-canceling microphone for good measure.
For Amazon Prime Day, the Razer Kraken V2 is enjoying a pretty hefty $50 off the typical asking price, making it certainly one of the best PC headset deals of the week.
