In our Razer Kraken V3 X review content, we take a look at the design and general features of the company’s new player headset.
Razer Kraken V3 X review We are here with its content. As with all other player accessories, we can say that one of the lanes where Razer has been active for a long time is player headsets. Razer, which produces very different products according to different segments in this regard, comes up with products that focus on both entry and top performance in Kraken models. We need to state from the beginning Razer Kraken V3 X A headset that focuses on the middle segment in terms of both design features and technical features. We can say that it gives a clue to this with its price. Now let’s take a look at the design and general features of this headset.
Razer Kraken V3 X review
First of all, when we look at the design of the headset, we see that it carries the traces of the Kraken series. In this model, which is a wired headset, the cable length is 1.8 meters. A quality material is used in both plastic accents and sponge parts. Of course, I do not know if there is a peeling on the sponge part, it is necessary to test it for a long time to understand. But I can say that at least they did a good job in this regard, as I used another headset from the company for 1.5 years before. Already the headband part consists of a plastic material. Sponge structure is used for the inner accent, the part that corresponds to your head. At least here, I can say that this problem has been minimized with the minimum use of sponges. At the top of the headband is a slightly bright Razer script.

Of course, a sliding system is preferred to fit your head perfectly. There are 9 levels of skids and you can make this adjustment according to your head comfortably. I can say that the headset is ergonomically comfortable and does not give you a headache. The headset has a weight of 285 grams. Although I normally prefer in-ear headphones and use them for a long time, I did not feel any great discomfort in this regard.
There is a loophole design on the outer parts of the headset. The Razer logo with RGB lighting is placed on both the left and right sides of the earpieces. I can say that it has a very nice lighting especially in dim environments. Moreover, this lighting works synchronously with your other Razer products. So if you have a keyboard or a gaming mouse, you can adjust according to their lights. Again, it is possible to make all these adjustments via the Razer Synapse application.
There is only one button on the left earpiece of the Razer kraken V3 X model. With this button, you can turn your microphone on and off. Apart from this button, there is also a knurled wheel button where you can adjust the volume. Frankly, I am one of those who think that the more buttons on the headset, the more complex it is. Therefore, I can say that I like this simple structure. The microphone head is also located in the left earpiece accent. The microphone body is made of an adjustable plastic. However, I would expect the microphone part to be of a sliding structure, that is, to be inward or removable. This design can be a bit annoying if you don’t use the microphone often.
As I said at the beginning, the Razer Kraken V3 X model is a headset positioned in the middle. We have to wait for the sound quality accordingly. Although the volume is a click below in this 7.1 support headset, I can say that it does a very good job in terms of sound quality for its price.
The Razer Kraken V3 X model, which uses 40 mm drivers called Triforce by the company, has a frequency range of 12 Hz and 28 Khz. This model is also the first 40mm headset with the Triforce driver. We have encountered 50mm headphones for Triforce before. Likewise, there are 40 mm headphones that use different technology. On the microphone side, we see that this frequency range is 100 hz and 100 Khz. The microphone structure provides a clear communication without interference in the game. The headset, which has an internal resistance of 32 impedance, is very successful in 7.1 sound. As I said, the sound level is low, but it is possible to say that it is a few steps ahead in terms of both material quality and sound quality compared to the products I have tested at close prices.
In the tests we have done in games, we have seen that it makes the sound distribution very successfully. One voice does not overlap the other and you can fully control what is happening around you. It is possible to separate the sounds of the surroundings and to understand which sound is coming from. We can say that it is an ideal headset for sound gaining, especially in competitive games.
The headset has console support other than PC. Although the company listed it as PC and PS4 on paper, I had the chance to test this headset on the Playstation 5. I haven’t had a chance to test it, but I think it will probably work well on the Xbox Series X and S models. The most boring part on the console side is that the headset has a USB A connection. In other words, you cannot plug it into the 3.5 MM jack input on the controllers such as Dualsense or Dualshock. To use it, you need to plug it directly into the USB inputs on the console. This is not a problem if the console is on your computer desk due to the length of the cable. But if you use your console connected to the TV in the living room and play from a distance, it is a dream to use this headset on your console. possible.
As a result Razer Kraken V3 x It has become a successful headphone model with its lightweight design and sound quality for its price. It has some shortcomings that we have mentioned, but I can say that its performance is extremely good for its price in general. If you are looking for a model in this price range, it is one of the headphone models you should check out.
