Razer Kraken V3 and Razer Kraken V3 Pro I have been using this model for a long time. In this article, we’ll be looking at the details of Razer’s popular headphone family. But not only two models of the Kraken V3 family Razer Kraken V3X and Razer Kraken V3 Hypersens It is also worth mentioning that there are two other models in the name. The ones I reviewed are the Flat and Pro versions. Now let’s move on to the details of the review.
First, I would like to start with the most common and basic functionality of Kraken V3 and Kraken V3 Pro. The Kraken V3 family comes with renewed Razer drivers. Razer Triforce Titanium These new drivers, called 50mm Tri-Layer Dynamic Drivers, are eye-catching. Updated with titanium-coated diaphragms, these speakers aim to bring more clarity to vocals. This lets you hear conversations and vocalizations clearly during gameplay, even in the midst of noise. It also helps that it’s stiffer and stronger for better resonance, while being light enough to deliver lightning-fast response times and accurate sound reproduction.
In fact, Razer’s goal here “You can’t listen to music with a gaming headset” or “The gaming headset is not a music headset” I think he did it to destroy his perception. Because with Kraken V3 and Kraken V3 Pro, it is also very pleasant to listen to music and consume movies, TV series and video content. While we can’t say it’s as wonderful as a music-based headset, it’s not hard to say that I had the most enjoyable music experience among gaming headsets with this series. .
Already a cinematic experience in music and video content THX Spatial Audio He also reveals this difference by providing him with an attestation. THX, the company of George Lucas, stands out above all in cinematic sound experiences. Although the THX certificate of these two headphones shows us that they include support for 7.1 surround sound, they have also been excellent in making the sound in the point of play, which enemy is where, which side the opponent is on tries to outrun you.
Clean microphone experience
Razer Kraken V3 and Razer Kraken V3 Pro come with detachable microphones. While microphones equipped with HyperClear technology have a frequency of 100 Hz – 10 kHz and a sensitivity of -42 ± 3 dB, Kraken V3 has cardioid microphones and Kraken V3 Pro has super cardioid style microphones. This way, while giving your voice a clear focus, it can also even out outside sounds. In Kraken V3, this achievement is quite appropriate. The Kraken V3 Pro, on the other hand, is one of the best headphones I’ve tested with built-in boom microphones.
Of course, the Razer Kraken family is a series that’s been around for years. Kraken, which managed to become popular every time, had a stylish and iconic design on all sorts of platforms. The entire Kraken V3 family also clearly provides this. Seen from a distance, the headphones that make you say “It’s Razer Kraken” with their round design and Chroma RGB-supported Razer logos show us that they really are a gaming headset. But for many, its design can seem vulgar. Because we’re talking headphones that look really big on your head. The memory foam ear cushions provide a comfortable fit, while the headband part is neither too soft nor too hard. It causes no pain even when you use it exactly and for a long time. Kraken V3 and Kraken V3 Pro, whose height can be adjusted gradually, are not products that deteriorate and break easily because they are reinforced with metal.
I have to say, it promises a comfortable experience in the oval ear area, which includes an artificial leather cover and measures 62mm x 42mm, and I have no problem with sweating even in hot weather. However, it is possible to see spills on the surface of the skin after long use. But it also has a significant advantage in passive noise cancellation.
Benefits of Kraken V3 Pro: Hypersense and wireless experience
The details I mentioned above were the common denominators for Kraken V3 and Kraken V3 Pro. However, the Kraken V3 family also has an important feature in both models. It can even be called the hallmark of this series. It’s HyperSense. This technology, which will come to the fore especially to the point of stealing the hearts of bass lovers, technically includes haptic vibrations to bass sounds, clearly vibrating your ears and even your head. This is intended to add a physical feel to the body, for example when a bomb explodes in FPS games, and vehicle sounds in racing games. The technology developed by Lofelt works with intelligent digital signal processing. This is achieved by using a wide range of frequencies (20 – 200 Hz) to sound natural and realistic. The driver model used is the Lofelt L5. The fact that it offers a wider range shows that it is not just an earphone that vibrates.
This feedback, which you can adjust on three levels, can be disturbing for me on the 3rd level. Although it is very enjoyable when I use it for the first time, it can become tiring and uncomfortable in long gaming marathons. I can have a lot of fun playing Formula 1 2021 at its lowest level. It’s really nice to feel the noise in my head when I’m climbing the bumps on the edges of the track which are called curbs, because it kind of feels like I’m wearing a helmet. But I can’t say I like him very much in the TV series or the musical experience. It is a problem that it vibrates even during conversations, especially in contents whose sound part is not very good. Hi-Fi platforms like TIDAL, Deezer or Netflix etc. It can be nice when you use it in content from platforms that support Dolby Atmos or different high level sounds. But trying it on Spotify isn’t very pleasant.
The wireless experience is another detail that separates Kraken V3 and Kraken V3 Pro. Promising a wireless experience with its USB Type-A style receiver in the 2.4 GHz band, Kraken V3 Pro offers support for wireless use on PC, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch. Razer Kraken V3 Pro, which can be charged with a USB Type-C cable, offers an experience of more than 40 hours and promises an experience that can only reach 10 hours with HyperSense and RGB activated. However, it is an important advantage that it can be charged quickly and used while being charged. Of course, if you want, you can also use it by making a physical connection with a 3.5mm cable. Kraken V3 can be used with a fixed USB Type A connection. This allows it to be used with PC, PlatStation and Nintendo Switch, which can transmit audio with a Type A connection. The Pro model, on the other hand, can be easily used with Xbox products as well as smartphones, tablets and computers that offer a 3.5mm input with the benefit of a 3.5mm cable.
Razer has managed to perpetuate the Kraken legend with 4 models in the V3 family. Razer Kraken V3 offers renewed performance drivers, more comfortable structure and good sound and microphone performance, while Kraken V3 Pro presents Kraken V3 as if all keys are pressed, in addition to the features of Kraken V3, long battery life. wireless life, HyperSense function that will be adored by enthusiasts and 3.5mm analog use, it manages to be a true series sequel with its desirability. But the HyperSense thing is a little different. It can also be like wasting money if you don’t like getting it without trying it. Therefore, I advise you to take a look at this feature if you choose Kraken V3 HyperSense or Kraken V3 Pro. Otherwise, a regular Kraken V3 might be the logical choice to get a new Kraken.
