If you're seeking headphones for gaming and TV, the Razer Kraken V3 is the better option due to its superior soundstage and low latency; however, they are not as suitable for use during exercise or travel. On the other hand, the Soundcore Space One offers excellent noise isolation and active noise cancelling which makes them ideal for air travel and noisy environments, plus they provide wireless freedom with good battery life. Keep in mind that while both have good overall sound quality, the Kraken V3 lacks built-in controls and the Space One is not optimized with low latency for gaming. Give Feedback

Soundguys

Sam Smart | November 2022
"This Razer Kraken V3 is a great headset for gamers who want comfort, surround sound, and software customization for a reasonable price. It's primarily a headset for PC gamers since THX Spatial audio is only supported on Windows. If you want something more multifaceted for multiple systems, this won't be an ideal headset for you. Luckily, there are plenty of competent Kraken V3 alternatives available to you."

PC Magazine

Tim Gideon | September 2023
"The Anker Soundcore Space One noise-cancelling headphones are stylish, comfortable, and affordable. They offer better active noise cancellation than we expect for the price, and their sculpted audio impresses thanks to the adjustable EQ and support for the hi-res LDAC codec. Overall, they’re an excellent value and well worth your attention if you're on a budget."
