Gaming hardware company Razer has announced the launch of its new premium headphones, the Kraken Forged Edition. Optimized for music and gaming, and designed for comfort and portability, the top-of-the-range closed earcup cans feature custom-tuned, bass-heavy drivers in brushed metal housing, and swappable audio cables.

Fashioned from machine aircraft-grade aluminum, each pair of Kraken Forged Edition headphones is assembled by hand and feature 40 mm Neodymium drivers that have been custom tuned to provide booming bass with clear mids and highs.

The frequency response is reported to be between 20 Hz and 20 kHz, the headphones have a 32 ohm impedance at 1 kHz and a sensitivity of 100 dB (± 3 dB at 1 kHz), and gamers and music lovers can choose to use a cable packing an inline microphone for game commentary or VOIP, or one without the mic.

The omnidirectional microphone has a frequency response of 50 Hz to 10 kHz, a signal-to-noise ratio of 60 dB and a sensitivity of -38 dB (± 3 dB at 1 kHz, 1 V/Pa).
