Razer Kraken Forged Edition Headphones

Razer has introduced their new top-of-the-line headphones for music and gaming, the Kraken Forged Edition. Crafted with ear cups that are machined out of aircraft-grade aluminum and finished with a matte texture, the new over-ear headphones are carefully hand-assembled, ensuring the build quality matches the premium looks and guts.

Razer’s renowned audio engineers spent countless hours fine-tuning the Kraken Forged Edition’s 40 mm bass-heavy drivers to perfection. As a result, the neodymium pair 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.

With plush leatherette ear cushions lining the ear cups, a fully adjustable headband and a lightweight, foldable design, the Razer Kraken Forged Edition headphones are designed for extended use. The Razer Kraken Forged Edition also includes a swappable cable with an in-line microphone, giving users the versatility to easily convert it into a headset for gaming or telephony.

“These are the best headphones on the market for both music and gaming, period,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. “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.”

Price and Availability
The Razer Kraken Forged Edition Headphones will be released on December 6, 2013 in the U.S. and worldwide for $299.
