American company Razor, founded in 1998 in California’s San Diego specializing in the production of gadgets and electronics for gamers has introduced new fully wireless headphones. The newly announced Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro build on the previous no Pro model.
Instead of classic earbuds, these have gotten in-ear tips and in addition to passive sound insulation, they now also have an active one. In addition to the ANC, they also have a ‘Quick attention mode’ that lets outside sound in to increase awareness of your surroundings (crossing the road, conversing with other people..).
Inside of each earphone, there is a 10mm transducer (converts the electronic signal to soundwaves), a proximity sensor and two microphones. In addition, one of the earphones also has a touch panel which gives you direct control over your the headphones (play, pause, skip, previous). It also features a third microphone on one of its leg, designed for voice chat or phone calls.
The new Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro is proud of its THX certification, which the Razer company has owned for four years. The manufacturer talks about a wide frequency range and clear sound even at high volumes.
Hammerhead Pro connects to a mobile phone or computer via Bluetooth 5.1, supports SBC and AAC codecs and has a control application for both Android and iOS. The manufacturer promises a low response time of 60 for a better gaming or watching videos experience.
The battery life is not the best, however. The headphones last up to four hours on one charge of the handset, with 16 more hours supplied by a charging case, which can be recharged via USB-C connector.
Each earbud weighs only 5g and the charging case 43g.
The body of the headphones is waterproof according to the IPX4 standard, and Razer comes with one pair of silicone plugs and a pair of foam in the box.
The Hammerhead True Wireless Pro Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price has been set at $199.99 USD / €209.99 and are available to purchase on the official Razer website.
