In order to achieve maximum safety while using your Razer Kraken X USB, we suggest that you adopt the following guidelines:

Should you have trouble operating the device properly and troubleshooting does not work, unplug the device and contact the Razer hotline or go to support.razer.com for assistance.

Do not take apart the device (doing so will void your warranty) and do not attempt to operate it under abnormal current loads.

Keep the device away from liquid, humidity, or moisture. Operate the device only within the specific temperature range of 0°C (32°F) to 40°C (104°F). Should the temperature exceed this range, unplug and/or switch off the device in order to let the temperature stabilize to an optimal level.

The device isolates external ambient sounds even at low volumes, resulting in lowered awareness of your external surroundings. Please remove the device when engaging in any activity that requires active awareness of your surroundings.

Listening to excessively loud volume over an extended period of time can damage your hearing. Furthermore, legislation in certain countries permits only a maximum sound level of 86dB for 8 hours a day. We, therefore, recommend that you reduce the volume to a comfortable level when listening for prolonged periods of time. Please, take good care of your hearing.


The Razer Kraken X USB requires minimum maintenance to keep it in optimum condition. Once a month we recommend you unplug the device and clean it using a soft cloth or cotton swab to prevent dirt buildup. Do not use soap or harsh cleaning agents.
