Razer may win the Internet with interchangeable ears on its new headset — oh, it has a handheld gaming console too

RazerCon 2022 is off and running today with the keynote for the third annual “celebration of gaming culture” from Razer showing off some of the latest hardware from the gaming giant. The Razer Edge 5G handheld console will be the highlight of the event for some; however, the updated Razer Kraken Kitty V2 Pro headset with its new interchangeable ears will steal the show for others.

Those two products would have been plenty for the ongoing live stream event that also features many special guests, musical performances, and a host of gaming-related giveaways. We’ll stick to the new products, though. Here’s a closer look at what Razer revealed.

Let’s not kid ourselves; the Razer Kraken Kitty V2 Pro headset with its new interchangeable ears is the real star of the show. The Chroma RGB wired headset takes what fans loved about the original and gives users bear and bunny ears in the box along with the kitty ears that give the headset its name. The ears are easily swappable, and of course, RGB lighting in the ears and the earcups can be customized to respond to emotes, alerts, and more. These are poised to be another huge hit with streamers.

It’s more than just the fun look, though. The Kraken Kitty V2 Pro features a detachable Razer HyperClear cardioid mic and Razer TriForce 50mm drivers with support for 7.1 digital surround sound. The hybrid fabric band and leatherette cushioning around the ears offer solid noise isolation and should keep you comfortably ensconced while gaming for hours on end.

Handheld gaming is having a moment. Look at the continued success of the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch OLED in the console’s 5th year on the market, while the Steam Deck is garnering considerable attention and praise since its launch earlier this year. Now, we have a new wave of cloud gaming-focused handhelds arriving this fall. The Logitech G Cloud was announced last month, and while we are a bit skeptical based on its $349 price point and middling specs, it could be an interesting test of how important hardware is for a cloud-based gaming handheld.
