There are so many desirable headphones – Razer's Kraken has just gone very much more upmarket with a Forged edition machined out of aircraft grade aluminium - cool.

Min-Liang Tan, Razer’s ambitious, driven, co-founder, CEO, and creative director explains in his most indomitable way - “These are the best headphones on the market for both music and gaming, period. We’ve made some incredible audio products in our time, and I’m proud to say that we have taken another huge step forward in terms of audio quality in a pair of headphones with phenomenal fit and finish - so there!”

Adjectives aside the Kraken were amongst the best cans to start with and the fine-tuning shows - the 40 mm bass-heavy neodymium drivers work in unison with the headphone’s acoustic chambers and isolated closed ear cup design to deliver booming bass, clear mids, and crisp highs for sound that’s optimized for music and pitch-perfect for gaming.

It has plush leatherette ear cushions that line the ear cups, a fully adjustable headband, a lightweight, foldable design and hard carry case. It comes with dual swappable cables – one for gaming and one for music.
