Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

The new ear pads are great for glasses wearers.
- Medium
The all-black headset features huge, extra-cushy ear cups, which rest on an aluminum frame that feels surprisingly sturdy given the peripheral's light weight.
However, the mic is retractable, which makes them a bit more appealing for outdoor use.
It sounds excellent in-game, and the microphone is crystal clear.
The Kraken Pro V2 is a well built, great-sounding gaming headset at a price that seems just about right.
- IGN
It’s comfortable to wear, and the 322g weight never felt particularly heavy on my head.
Simple, sturdy design and Lightweight and comfortable.
Now the Kraken’s folded in many of the Man O’ War’s improvements, but with a durable aluminum design and much more affordable $100 price tag.

What reviewers didn't like

The new V2 is not as fun and stupidly bass-heavy as the old model.
- Medium
though it lacks the customizable ear-cup lighting of its pricier sibling.
The Razer Kraken V2 have a durable design that's a bit too bulky and cumbersome.
The ear cups are covered in faux leather and can make your ears sweat fast in a warm environment
They don't breath particularly well though, and after a short gaming session in a warm room I found the cushions were toasty and a bit sweaty.
- IGN
The degree of grip around the head is somewhat weak however, and while many people will thank Razer for this, I’d personally have preferred a tighter grip for less slippage when moving my head.
Ear cups take some adjustment and Low microphone volume.
No decorative ears, which is fine, but sadly no mute indicator, either.
