Razer has announced its latest audio product, the Razer Kraken 7.1 Surround Sound USB gaming headset.

The Razer Kraken 7.1 comes equipped with an advanced virtual surround sound engine capable of ultra-low latency audio processing that simulates a 360-degree surround sound experience that is usually achievable only by incorporating more than one positional speaker driver in each ear cup.

Driven through Razer's Synapse 2.0 unified configuration software, the engine is capable of a high degree of customization, allowing gamers to tweak and specifically position each surround sound channel, boost bass levels and even balance incoming voice audio for astounding aural precision, the vendor said.

The omnidirectional digital microphone on the Razer Kraken 7.1 comes equipped with an optimized algorithm, offering better frequency response, sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio than a standard analog microphone, the vendor said. It also has a mic mute button and an LED indicator on the tip to indicate when the mic is active.

The headset is priced at US$99.99.
