Razer Offers New Models in BlackWidow, Kraken and Basilisk Line
Razer is bolstering the company’s lineup with three new gaming peripherals. The company announced a new BlackWidow keyboard, Kraken headset, and Basilisk Essential mouse this week, offering new models at a lower price point.
You can check out the current line, and previous models that are now on sale, on Razer’s official page right here on Amazon.
The new Razer BlackWidow keyboard offers many of the same functions found on the flagship BlackWidow Elite including the green mechanical switches. Razer’s switches provide a tactile bump and distinctive click sound, and they have become a favorite among some users over the years. Using Razer’s improved dual-side wall switch design, key wobble is minimized while increasing accuracy and responsiveness. Each key is rated to last up to 80M keystrokes according to the company, allowing users to pound away in the toughest of battles. If you enjoy all things RGB, the BlackWidow model offers Razer Chroma with individual key lighting of 16.8M colors controllable through the Razer Synapse 3 application.
With Razer Hypershift, every key can be a macro key, or be assigned secondary functions through the app. The Razer BlackWidow also features onboard hybrid memory and cloud storage, allowing users to preserve their personalized settings when used with different computers. Now you can bring your customized settings and color layout with you when you hit that LAN party. The keyboard started shipping from Razer on March 14th for $119.
If you’re looking to pick up the new Razer Kraken headset, the new model offers 50 mm drivers and an improved retractable microphone. Customers will also find thicker headband padding and all-ear gel cooling cushions on the device. The ear cup padding features moisture-wicking breathable fabric on the contact surface and a cooling gel layer. The headset also offers inline mute and volume controls. The Kraken is also available in a Quartz Pink edition, and as the Razer Kraken for Console, featuring a new color variant of black with blue highlights. The new model is available for $79.
The Razer Basilisk Essential offers a unique right-handed ergonomic form factor of the original Razer Basilisk and has a total of 7 configurable buttons utilizing Razer’s Mechanical Mouse Switches, with durability of up to 20M clicks. The thumb-operated Multi-Function Paddle can be programmed for any function the gamer needs; a quick-shift DPI clutch for sniping, shortcut for a weapon or spell slot, push-to-talk comms or Press and Hold for sprinting, healing or crouching. The device is powered by a native 6400 DPI optical sensor and features Razer Chroma with customizability of 16.8M colors. The Razer Basilisk Essential is avaiable for $49.
