The Razer Nari Ultimate features RGB lighting on each ear cup, this lighting can be completely controlled through Razer's Synapse 3 software. 

In addition to the RGB lighting, it features a retractable microphone while features a lightweight design. This design is paired with the auto-adjusting headband which adapts to the shape of the user's head. 

As for audio quality, expect to find a nice balance of lows and mids, offering a departure from the brand's traditionally bass-heavy offerings.

You'll also find some intriguing haptic feedback with Razer's Hypersense tech allowing the Nari Ultimate to vibrate along with low-end eventful noises which adds an extra layer of immersion.

For those wanting a headset with both RGB and some rather clever tech, these look like a great choice.

This Razer Kraken X features an ultralightweight design which ensures a flexible frame while still providing good durability. It features a weight of 250 grams which is roughly 40% lighter than a lot of other budget headsets.

It features a bendable noise-cancelling cardioid microphone, this microphone reduces any background or ambient noise that ensures crystal-clear communication. 

You'll also find that the Razer Kraken X features custom-tuned 40 mm drivers that can provide incredible power and clear sound while producing an immersive bass.

The BlackShark V2 Pros look to be a great pick for immersive gaming given both their vast amounts of padding and their Triforce Titanium 50mm drivers providing smooth audio with plenty of punch.

You'll find plenty of configuration options through the included Razer Synapse 3 software where it's possible to fine-tune both audio profiles and also the detachable microphone.

The Triforce Titanium 50mm drivers are divided into three separate parts to have high-tones, mid-tones, and low-tones be entirely separate. 

Given that the BlackShark V2 Pros are also wireless, a 24-hour battery life also ensures you'll have plenty of playtime.

For those looking for a cracking Xbox Series X headset, look no further than the Razer Kaira Pro Wireless.

What you'll find is a minimalistic design that's reminiscent of the classic black and green Xbox colour scheme that means this headset looks the business.

Alongside this comes the fact the Kaira Pro Wireless offers up wire-free connectivity with a marvellous battery life of 15 hours with Chroma lighting on, and 20 hours with it off.

The audio here should be pretty decent with support for Windows Sonic surround sound ensuring some good immersion within AAA titles and some thumping bass, as is typical for Razer headsets.


You'll also find a handy cardioid microphone here which is great for voices and ensures your teammates will be able to hear you loud and clear.

Best Lightweight Razer Headset - Razer Ifrit

The Razer Ifrit offers a lightweight and rather unique in-ear design that allows gamers to wear it for hours on end.

Despite its small size, we think the audio quality on offer here should be pretty good, being characterised by an overall balanced sound with particular emphasis on the mids.

Its included DAC also features 2 audio jacks means that the Razer Ifrit can be used to capture audio from two headsets at once, which is interesting.

There's also a pretty decent condenser microphone included which should offer enough clarity for you to be heard by your teammates.
