Razer boasts a huge lineup of headsets — six different series, to be exact — to please its numerous fans. With only a few days to go until E3, the company announced an updated version of one of its Kraken headsets, the Kraken Pro.
In order to make the headset more convenient to users, the new model now features inline controls to adjust volume and mute the microphone. The volume control itself is a grooved wheel with the microphone on/off switch located beneath it.
Other than that, the Kraken Pro has the same features as before, including a retractable microphone and a closed ear cup design, and Razer claimed that the headset's weight has been optimized so that you can wear it comfortably for an extended period of time.
The inclusion of volume and mic controls is a bit late for the headset, as the feature is a must-have on most of today's headphones and earphones because it removes the need to adjust the volume via the taskbar. Additionally, some of today's keyboards feature media controls for music, which might include a knob to adjust the volume. Still, it's a feature that's better late than never.
The Kraken Pro comes in three colors: black, green and white. The updated version will be out this month for $79.99 — the same price as its predecessors.
