It is also designed as an open device, giving developers the opportunity to build integrations with existing and new mobile applications. The Nabu was first announced in January at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 in Las Vegas, where it was voted the Best of CES “People’s Choice” winner.

Fans will find the Kraken Neon Series is outfitted with powerful drivers that pack deep and heavy bass tones to compliment acutely tuned mids and highs optimized for gaming and music listening.
 
A Pro version of the Razer Kraken Neon Series will feature a fully retractable microphone built into the headset for seamless connectivity to smart phones, tablets and other voice-enabled devices. Additionally, the Razer Kraken Neon Series marks the first time that Razer has released a full colourway for a product.
