No one asked for rumble tech on their ears, but Razer delivered it with their Kraken V3 HyperSense gaming headset. These boxes will push the vibrations to match the bass of any audio you listen to. Now you can have gunshots in CS:GO or bass drops in music reverberating in your ears for a record low price.
The Razer Kraken V3 launched late last year at $129.99, and now Amazon has them for $99.99. That’s the lowest price for these headphones since their debut, and it makes their somewhat whimsical nature much easier to swallow if you don’t particularly like them.
In our review of the headset, Reece Birthrey said, “While [the HyperSense technology] is a cool addition and makes things feel more realistic, the novelty can wear off a bit quickly.” Birthrey tested the feature in both games and music and found it to be a bit inconsistent. clear and crisp audio .
“The Kraken V3 HyperSense is a wonderful headset and is quite an intriguing addition to Razer’s long Kraken line,” Birthrey wrote.
The Kraken V3 HyperSense comes with a Razer HyperClear cardioid microphone which Birthrey also praised for its sound isolation quality, and they said its memory foam ear cushions kept it comfortable for long periods of time.
RGB fans will appreciate that the Kraken V3 HyperSense has LEDs on both earcups, which you can control through Razer’s Synapse software. There are also built-in EQ settings in there if you want to play around with the sound signature on them.
