Razer Kraken Forged Edition
04 The Mobile Gamer
$400, RAZERZONE.COM/au-en If the future of gaming is mobile, then the Krakens are ready, as at home playing music from your phone as providing the soundtrack to your latest iOS and Android apps. No console support – next-gen or otherwise – but plug them in via 3.5mm and an in-line adaptor controls volume, while a mic handles chat.
Sound quality is decent, but there’s no active noise cancelling. The closed-ear design and 40mm neodymium drivers do a good job of blocking out the hum of the world, though. Our biggest complaint is their weight; they do fold up to fit into your bag, but at 390g you’ll sure know you’re carrying them. T3 Says Ideal for gaming commuters
