Can the Xbox Series S handle this?

Yes. Just plug in the USB dongle, access the Xbox’s settings, and look for the Bluetooth dongle to complete the connection.

I have a second meta-quest. I don’t attach it to a computer (standalone only.) Is there a chance that the second meta-quest will support hypersense?

I’d consult Razer. Well, USB to C functions. I’m not aware of anyone who has attempted USB to 3.5mm. I am aware that the haptics requires 5 volts to function.

Does this function on consoles?

From the Razer website, the Kraken V3 HyperSense headset is compatible with PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.

Do they function on the PS4?

From the Razer website, the Kraken V3 HyperSense headset is compatible with PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.

Will Hypersense run on the PS4?

On the Razer website, the Kraken V3 HyperSense headset is described as compatible with PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.

Dolby Atmos spatial audio mixing is possible with these headphones?

It does, however when using these headphones, I’ve heard great things about THX vs. Atmos. Dolby Atmos does not allow you to calibrate any virtual speakers; however, it does come with THX Spatial Audio. Try THX as well.

How much of the audio does the headphone project into the space?

My previous Kraken was so loud that it could have served as a little speaker. depending on how loud your volume is; for me, 50% is enough loud. the only time I believe people can hear things is during a very noisy game, but other than that, I believe it is loud enough.

Do they also function when wired?

They do function wired. If you plug them in, no electricity will be provided. These sound okay. But I have no idea how to hook them up to a computer. I can use my phone and PlayStation. For wired applications, it would be preferable to utilize the 2019 Krakens, unless I’m missing something.

Would it work if I connected this headset to a USB to 3.5 mm jack?

Yes! You can notice that it also includes a 3.5mm cable if you read the product description that lists everything that is included in the package. so that you may, for instance, connect to a phone or a game console. Well, that is, if your phone has a 2.5mm jack.

The ability to switch off RGB lighting doesn’t appeal to me.

I don’t think they have lights, but you can download the razer synapse app, which is what it wants you to do, and turn off the RGB in chroma-key movies. That said, razer also offers decent headphones without lights.
