Fans of the quirky Razer Kraken Kitty V2 wired headset will be pleased to hear that a Pro version will soon be available. The Razer Kraken Kitty V2 Pro, modeled by popular streamer AriGameplays, was launched today at Razercon 2022 alongside some other new peripherals in the popular Quartz colorway. Included in the $199.99 price, the headset comes with not just the classic kitty ears but bears and bunnies for even more creature customization.
If you’re not a fan of the eye-catching baby pink design, you needn’t worry, as this headset also comes in the classic Razer black and green colorway. Not only does the headset look good, but it should also sound good as it boasts impressive specs. The soft hybrid fabric and leatherette cups house Razer TriForce Titanium 50mm drivers with 7.1 digital surround sound and natural noise isolation so you can fully focus on the game. The Razer Hyperclear cardioid microphone is detachable, as with the Razer Kraken V3 Pro model.
Razer has always made its headsets stand out aesthetically, and it will be no different with the Razer Kraken V2 Pro. All three interchangeable ears come with the ability to react in real-time to stream events, being powered by Razer Chroma RGB. The ears and earcup lighting can cycle through over 16.8 million possible colors to react to alerts, emotes, and other content-creator tools. Perhaps the most fun part of the marketing is the @Razer Instagram is running a Razer Kraken Kitty ear AR filter to try the headphones out for yourself and take snaps in your choice of ears.
