Product Overview

The Razer THX Spatial Audio App features advanced 7.1 surround sound with adjustable virtual speakers and is compatible with all headphones and headsets, wired or wireless.
THX Spatial Audio enhances audio positioning, even from stereo sources. Traditionally, surround sound systems require a multi-channel audio source; THX's rendering engine is capable of producing a wider, accurately positioned soundscape from just two channels. The output from THX's rendering engine, combined with the unique virtual speaker system of the app, produces a natural three-dimensional sound field.
Everyone perceives sound differently and has their own preference for audio. Volume, frequency, and direction are unique to each individual. The Razer THX Spatial Audio App has a suite of customization options, including speaker positioning, volume, and distance, etc., so that each user can fine-tune the app for their own preference.

The Kraken Ultimate is a new flagship THX Spatial Audio-supporting model. It eschews an analog connection and in-line controls with game/chat balance options. The Kraken X USB also forgoes the analog jack of the Kraken X in favor of the digital connection. Both are available now.
