When most people think about Razer they think of high quality gaming peripherals. One area that Razer has been impressing in recently is game audio. Back in August they released their latest USB gaming headset, the Razer Kraken 7.1 Surround Sound, and also their Razer Surround software.
Now in collaboration with Eric “E-Panda” Hernandez they are introducing a new headset – the E-Panda Hooligan. The headset was tailor made for E-Panda who is the session and tour drummer for Bruno Mars and also Bruno’s brother. E-Panda started playing at the impressionable age of four and gigging professionally at the age of 10, booking shows six nights a week for nearly a decade. It was the unrelenting and diverse performance schedule that bred rock-steady consistency into the Hawaiian-raised percussionist’s playing, informing within his mind and limbs a mastery of all music styles. Whether it’s soul, funk, reggae or rock, E-Panda is a revered first-call player when filling pockets and laying grooves are the order of business.
In addition to his work with Bruno Mars, E-Panda backs Taio Cruz, and he has had the pleasure of sharing the stage on drums with Rihanna, Sting, Cee-Lo Green (Gnarls Barkley), Monica, Keri Hilson, K’Naan, B.o.B, Janelle Monae, Carmit Bachar (Pussy Cat Dolls), Tre Hardson (the Pharcyde), Kim Hill (Black Eyed Peas), Travie Mc Coy (Gym Class Heroes), Jeff Bhaskar (Kanye West) and the Far East Movement.

The construction of the Razer Kraken E-Panda Hooligan had multiple motivations: durability to withstand daily abuse on the go, comfort and fit to keep your head happy for hours on end, and sound quality to let your music move you like you want.
The headphones are outfitted with large 40 mm neodymium magnet drivers tuned for crystal clear music in the high-and mid-ranges and packing deep bass for powerful lows, making them really versatile.
The ear cups of the Razer Kraken E-Panda Hooligan Headphones are foldable, making the footprint of these full-sized headphones compact for maximum mobility so you can take them anywhere you go.
