Console-gamers want great sound as well as PC users and for them Razer have announced the latest addition to their arsenal of Xbox One peripherals with the release of the Razer Kraken Stereo Gaming Headset for Xbox One. The headset is ergonomically designed with plush circumaural padding and 40 mm neodymium magnet drivers.
