Razer Kraken Stormtrooper Edition Headset Complete Review: Nice Design and Perfect Sound in Games and Movies

The Kraken Stormtrooper Edition has been updated to the new Razer Kraken 7.1 for unique super surround sound for gaming and immersive movie experiences.

Does it make sense now, at the end of May, to write about the Razer Kraken Stormtrooper Edition headset released at the end of last year? Of course, yes, because the school year ends and the time for rest and entertainment comes, naturally after all exams at school and the institute have been successfully passed. The Razer’s Star War-themed version has leather trim and looks very attractive, especially for fans of the Star Wars saga and related series.

The Kraken Stormtrooper Edition gaming headset is an updated version of the Razer Kraken 7.1, providing similar features and equipment. In this summary, we will not dwell on the Razer Kraken Stormtrooper Edition’s technical characteristics but focus on the feel and experience of its use

.

The headphones are quite compact and lightweight – weighing only 322 g. The 1.3 m cable should be enough for almost any use scenario, including the connection on the back of a desktop PC. The ear cushions are covered with cooling gel-filled cushions, which are very comfortable to use.

The small control box has one analog volume control wheel and a switch to quickly mute the microphone. By the way, Razer headphones come with a retractable unidirectional microphone that can be folded in any direction. And most importantly, the headphones are compatible with devices with a 3.5 mm audio jack.

In terms of design, the Razer Kraken Stormtrooper Edition headphones look great. Star Wars fans will appreciate the style and color palette. Besides, they sit very comfortably on their heads even after very long gaming battles.

The headband is trimmed with very soft leather with the Star Wars logo stamped on it. Moreover, the words Storm Strooper is visible on both ends of the headband, and a stormtrooper head is drawn on each cup.

Now is the time to talk about sound. Razer has done a tremendous job of incorporating their latest audio technology into this model. These headphones sound exceptionally good with 7.1 surround sound (Windows 10 only). But it’s worth noting that they lack energy when it comes to bass. If you’re looking for a pair of headphones that excel in this area, it’s best to look for another headset. Plus, if you’re going to connect this headset to your PlayStation 4 console, you’ll get the highest quality sound without 7.1 surround sound.

We’ve tested many gaming headphones and say the Kraken Stormtrooper Edition’s microphone quality is top-notch. This is understandable because Razer makes devices for esports players.

But there is one thing we didn’t like very much. We are talking about the volume control located on the cord control panel. The wheel is not fixed, so whenever you touch it with clothes, you risk accidentally turning up or down the volume. Perhaps this only applies to our sample, but it’s worth mentioning.

Razer Kraken Stormtrooper Edition: Conclusion

The Kraken Stormtrooper Edition headphones are a great addition to Razer’s gaming headset lineup. The Star Wars-themed design and sound quality of these headphones can be recommended as some of the best in this price range. Of course, most of the company’s devices are very expensive, but in this case, we cannot call the Kraken Stormtrooper Edition headphones too expensive (about US$109.99). After all, this is a premium product and a special edition. If you’re looking for a gaming game with high-quality sound and sophisticated design, then Razer’s Kraken Stormtrooper Edition has everything you need and a little more.
