Razer’s latest, wireless headset for Xbox gamers – Razer Kaira Pro Review

Razer Kaira Pro Review – Razer Kaira Pro is Razer’s latest wireless headphone dedicated to the Xbox family (Xbox One and the new Series X / S).

And this is my seventh Razer product that I have so far (from Wolverine v1 & v2, Raiju Tournament, BlackWidow V3 Pro, Basilisk X, and Raion).

So, I certainly have high hopes for the Razer Kaira Pro wireless headphone! After two and half weeks of use, let’s see if it’s any good.

What are the main features?

  • Xbox Wireless and Bluetooth 5.0 for seamless, low-latency console and mobile gaming
  • Razer TriForce Titanium 50mm Drivers for high-end audio performance
  • Razer HyperClear Supercardioid Mic for ultra-clear voice quality
  • Dedicated mobile mic for convenient communication on the go
  • FlowKnit memory foam ear cushions for long-lasting comfort

And what do you get in the box?

  • Razer Kaira Pro Headphone
  • USB-C braided cable
  • Detachable mic

First impressions

When you first open the box, you’ll be asked to update the firmware via the given URL on the label. You then just download the firmware update file and plug your headphones to your PC (via the provided USB-C cable) to begin the update. 

The whole process only took me less than 10 minutes. Once it’s done, you can start pairing the headphones.

Is it easy to pair?

Yes, it’s pretty straight forward. All you gotta do is press the pairing button on both Xbox and the headphone. Voila, it’s paired!

You can also download the “Razer Headset Setup for Xbox” to customise the Chroma lighting and adjust the EQ sound settings.

Alternatively, should you want to pair to your PC via Bluetooth, just press and hold the Bluetooth button on the headphone, open the Bluetooth settings, then scan for nearby devices until it finds your headphone, then connect to it. That’s it.

How’s the comfort?

At first, it felt a little bit tight on my head, perhaps it’s because my head is slightly bigger than most people.

Over time, it’s started to feel comfortable to me. Thanks to the breathable memory foam cushions, it doesn’t get too hot on the ears.

How’s the battery?

So far, I’ve only fully charged it once during my two-week review. I believe it’s living up to its factory-claimed figure of 20 hours (without the Chroma lighting).

How about sound quality?

I’ve been using the headphones whilst playing DBZ Kakarot on Xbox Series X and Cyberpunk 2077 on PC, both sound crisp and bassy enough.

The mid is superb too for my taste.

Too bad, it doesn’t have active noise cancelling, but I reckon it doesn’t matter because Razer’s TriForce Titanium 50mm drivers are sound-proof enough.
