This headset offers immersive audio like I’ve never experienced before, THX Spatial sound paired with HyperSense Technology (Haptics) is another level of enjoyment when it comes to gaming, watching movies or whatever you want to use this headset for. Unfortunately, the Kraken V3 PRO is let down by the sub-par microphone, which is a problem especially at the $200 price-point.
Coming in with the most effective and enjoyable haptics we’ve experienced in a headset, the Kraken V3 Pro certainly makes a splash. The excellent build quality, agreeable sound, and great comfort wins even more points. However the buggy software experience and sub-par mic left a bitter taste in our mouths. These issues shouldn’t be present in a $200 gaming headset.
The Razer Kraken V3 Pro is the best of the bunch, retaining everything that made previous models great and improving on what held other models back. But the price may not be worth the additional features for some.
The Razer Kraken V3 Pro is a premium gaming headset with high-quality sound and plenty of programmable features. But the haptic feedback can get old fast.
The Razer Kraken V3 Pro is an excellent headset that’s comfortable to wear while delivering rich audio. Having a wireless option that’s compatible with PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch places it clearly in the realm of gaming headsets, and the haptics adds a level of immersion that serves as the cherry on top of the already robust piece of gaming gear.
While it may be one of the most comfortable headsets on the market, the audio quality is a bit lacking if you don’t take the time to adjust it to each specific scenario and even then, requiring THX Spatial Audio in some capacity if you want to be on an even playing field with other more competitive devices. If you’re looking to just try out the HyperSense feature, the cheaper Razer Kraken V3 HyperSense should be perfectly fine for your needs. And if neither that nor the wireless features are something you’re interested in, then the standard Kraken V3 will give you the best value for your money.
The Kraken V3 Pro is a terrific, game experience-enhancing headset that mixes Razer's audio pedigree with some fancy new haptics. A couple of caveats hold it back from being a true world-beater, but this is a triumph of a headset for PC gamers.
