The new Kraken Tournament Edition headset sports some killer features, including THX Spatial Audio, as well as extreme comfort with cooling gel ear cushions for those extended gaming sessions. The headset comes rocking a similar design to that of other Razer gear, so others will know you're representing the brand.

To fine-tune your experience, an audio controller is hooked up via USB, allowing you to adjust bass levels, game and chat mix, and more. Combining the THX Spatial Audio support with 50mm drivers makes for quite the audio delivery system and with games requiring absolute attention to minor visual details and audio cues, the Kraken Tournament Edition headset is ideal for games like PUBG.

There's even a 3.5 mm combo audio jack, supporting use with PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and a whole host of other devices. The Kraken Tournament Edition headset will set you back $99.99 and is set to be released in September.

BlackWidow Elite keyboard

Razer Blackwidow

The BlackWidow Elite is an awesome keyboard with some excellent switches, but the company decided to refresh its popular gaming keyboard with full support for Synapse 3. With an 80 million keystroke lifespan and dual sidewalls for enhanced stability, it's the same BlackWidow you know and love but better.

What sets this model apart from the rest of the family is the inclusion of onboard memory and cloud storage, allowing the creation of up to five profile configurations that can be loaded anywhere. A USB 2.0 and audio passthrough also make it an excellent choice for LAN events and desks where space is a luxury.

This kind of quality in a keyboard doesn't come cheap, requiring you to part with $169.99. The new BlackWidow Elite is available right now.
