If you expect a Nintendo Switch headset in this price range to be uncomfortable, the Razer Kraken X has a surprise up its sleeve. It remains comfortable to wear even after hours of gaming. The cushioning is much better than its appearance would suggest, and the lightweight design helps tremendously.
Plus, its audio system doesn’t fall short. The X isn’t the best of Razer’s headphones by any means, but it still manages to impress by balancing high-pitched treble with rumbling bass. It’s also easy to change the volume with the built-in controls (which are missing on the otherwise identical Kraken X Lite). While it’s a shame that 7.1 digital surround sound is only available on the PC, we can’t complain too much about the quality we get here.
The Kraken X’s compatibility with almost everything is another plus. It can be used with almost anything, and if you can get it on PC, you’ll have an even better experience.
