THX SPATIAL AUDIO | Be Immersed in the Game

    The software I got (for free) with my Kraken X Lite (Razer 7.1 surround sound) does exactly that as far as I can understand -- the headset was advertised as "coming with a software that simulates 7.1 surround sound". Now it's asking me whether I want to upgrade and buy THX Spatial Audio at half price.

    Does anybody know what is the difference between the 'default' 7.1 surround sound "simulator" (for which I got the code with my headset) and this new THX spatial audio, and is it worth buying on top of the provided 7.1 software for Kraken X Lite?

    If not, I wonder if its time to upgrade to Kraken Kitty .

    No option to purchase this in Asia Pacific region so far. Very disappointing since it is just software where the trial version can be downloaded, but can't be upgraded at all.

    Could someone please take the accessibility of this app in mind? I am using it and liking it sofar but I cannot change the eq and the game mode is to much base so at the moment the only thing I can do is turn off the base boost. would like to have more control though. I am using the nvda (nv-access) open source software to access the application.

    If you have a THX enabled headset that unlocks the feature in Synapse 3, then you don't need to buy this standalone software. This software bring the THX thing to ANY audio device (usb, onboard jack, etc...) and any headset then.
    It's an upgrade of the 7.1 Surround software we were given free with a 2019 Kraken, which was already an upgrade of the Razer Surround (synapse2 era). Buy it if you want to have THX (it would mean that you are happy with it) on any system that doesn't have a Synapse3/THX enabled device (like the Kraken TE or the Nari).

    Just a scam. It's the old razer surround software (which was free and was broke by razer just before the "new" THX release) with a new user interface. Pitiful...

    How is the 7.1 surround sound broken? I guess I bought my headset just days before the THX release, so I never saw the "old" user interface. I've been using the "default" 7.1 surround sound software wtih no issues since I installed it.

    I can also "wrap" my 7.1 Surround software around any audio devide (usb, onboard jack) so I really don't see how what you describe there is much different (well, I guess the sound quality, but I haven't actually tried out the THX demo yet). And, are you saying THX is free with Kraken headphones? Coz with my Kraken X Lite headphones (which do have 7.1 support; I got a free key for 7.1 Surround software with them), it is still asking me to pay for the upgrade to THX.

    I don't know the quality difference between 7.1 and THX software in terms of quality nor if it is worth upgrading. I haven't tried the THX software demo either. My point was that the standalone software for THX is running like the 7.1 separate software, so yes, you can use it with any audio device. And yes, the Kraken TE (through the USB dongle) and the Nari headsets (I have the Essential) unlocks the THX but WITHIN Synapse 3. They do not give a free key for the THX software. So my other point is that if you want THX with any audio outputs, then you need to purchase the standalone software. If you don't, then in Synapse 3, the THX tab will be unlocked when a THX certified headset is detected by Synapse (the kraken TE usb DAC and the Nari usb transmitter - the wireless headset has to be on and paired). See picture attached.
    And yes, the 7.1 software is not broken, I got a free key - by registering a Kraken 2019 headset - and activated it the very last week.

    sounds amazing on my Blackshark V2, but I want to disable it automatically when using chrome for example (watching YT videos)
    Music sounds worse with it enabled.

    Hi, I recently bought the Razer Kraken TE that comes with the THX Spatial audio. I have a mac and want to run the software in order to use the THX Spatial audio, but the software is only supported for windows. I have tried downloading the 7.1 Surround Sound and both Razer Synapse 2 and 3 using wine, but being unable to run either of them. I was wondering what other way is there to run these softwares while still having a Mac OSX.

    I've had the V2s for 2 years at this point and I can only recommend them soundwise! The Chroma implementation still works with Synapse 2 tho, so if you're looking for a full Synapse 3 Chroma Setup maybe check something else.
