This new headset is built off the same platform as the Razer Kraken Pro headset, which has been called the most comfortable headset in the world. The Kraken 7.1's virtual surround sound engine is capable of ultra-low latency audio processing that simulates a 360-degree surround sound experience. Chances are that all you understood from that sentence was "surround sound" but that's really all you need to know. The Kraken 7.1 generates audio quality usually only achieved with multiple positional speaker drivers in each ear cup.
The Razer Kraken 7.1 is available now, worldwide, for $99 USD. Scroll down to check out the full press release, which is chock full of audiophile techno-babble.
