Razer introduced a new competitive gaming headset today that features THX Spatial Audio technology to deliver pinpoint positional accuracy greater than what 7.1 surround sound is capable of.
The Razer Kraken Ultimate is powered by custom-tuned 50mm drivers, which produce a more natural sound curve. A realistic and immersive soundscape captures every auditory detail, allowing users to pick up even the slightest nuance in sound and use it to their advantage. The Kraken Ultimate’s active noise canceling microphone offers clear team communication, completing a winning combination that gives gamers a competitive edge.
The Razer Kraken Ultimate comes equipped with THX Spatial Audio technology – an advanced positional audio solution that delivers pinpoint accuracy. Producing sound in a 360-degree sphere allows for better awareness and heightened immersion during competitive gameplay, allowing gamers to locate sneaking enemies, avoid whizzing bullets, and detect nearby threats before anyone else.
THX Spatial Audio optimizes the unique sound design and engineering of every game and delivers a natural listening experience by adjusting its virtual speakers to match the audio source’s actual distance and location in-game. This can help to reduce brain and ear fatigue, as users are able to decipher where every sound is coming from instinctively, letting them stay focused longer.
The Kraken Ultimate also features a new, Discord-certified, active noise canceling microphone, assuring gamers they will experience flawless team communication, even at crowded tournaments. With this active noise canceling technology, the Razer Kraken Ultimate’s microphone detects and nullifies background noise as players speak, ensuring crystal-clear communication
Team chat is essential to any multi-player game, and with the new Discord-certified, active noise canceling microphone on the Kraken Ultimate, gamers can be assured of flawless team communication, even at crowded tournaments. Competitive gaming headsets rely on the ability to chat clearly and discern even the subtlest sounds moment-to-moment. By adding active noise canceling technology, the Razer Kraken Ultimate’s highly-tuned mic detects and nullifies background noise as you speak, making their voice distinct, and ensuring crystal-clear communication between teammates.
“We have built the Kraken Ultimate to address the needs of gaming audio at its roots,” said Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Peripherals business unit. “Powered by THX Spatial Audio, its custom-tuned drivers deliver superior sound, housed in signature Kraken comfort. Combined with an active noise canceling microphone for crystal-clear team comms, this headset has the winning edge that gamers are looking for.”
The Kraken Ultimate also features highly visible backlit earcups powered by Razer Chroma, supporting 16.8 million colors and a suite of lighting effects controlled from within Razer Synapse 3, for endless customization possibilities.
