For the same cost as Nintendo's Wii U, gamers can now get Razer's new top-of-the-line headphones: the Razer Kraken Forged Edition. 

The new gaming headset is hand assembled and has ear cups that are machined out of aircraft-grade aluminum and finished with a matte texture.  Furthermore, the ear cushions lining the ear cups are made of a plush leatherette.

Inside the ear cups are 40mm bass-heavy drivers.  The neodymium pair work along with the headphone´s acoustic chambers and isolated closed ear cup resulting in booming bass, clear mids, and crisp highs for sound that Razer says is optimized for music and "pitch-perfect" for gaming. 

"These are the best headphones on the market for both music and gaming, period," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. "We´ve made some incredible audio products in our time, and I´m proud to say that we have taken another huge step forward in terms of audio quality in a pair of headphones with phenomenal fit and finish." 

The Razer Kraken Forged Edition also includes a swappable cable with an in-line microphone, giving users the versatility to easily convert it into a headset for gaming or telephony. 

The 0.85lb heavy folding gaming headset carries a retail price of $299.99 USD.
