Razer is a higher-end brand that makes gaming peripherals and computers. Their products are all designed well, with a slick finish. The headphones from Razer are good quality sonic devices that will set you into the gaming zone well. The prices of their collection range from the mid to top end.
The gaming market has some of the most high expectations from the devices and peripherals, Razer is a brand that delivers. It has produced some of the highest-rated laptops and also some of the best options when it comes to peripherals.
The brand borrows names from predatory animals and bladed objects for their own products; adding to the overall 'cool' feel of their image.
Addressing all the technical needs of gamers, the brand also has gaming headphones or headsets for customers.
Keeping in line with their great design aesthetic, the headphones from Razer are also about as sleek as it gets. The colours are mostly black, with the other options being quartz, mercury and green. Quartz is their version of light grey and mercury is their equivalent of white. The green headphones are a bright green, similar to the logos and trims the brand has across their collection.
Razer uses large-sized drivers, either at 40mm or 50mm which are custom tuned by them. These create the much-needed push for good sound. Certain models are designed to be ultra-light, while others have cooling gel infused in the padding.
There are also options for THX Spatial Audio or 7.1 Surround Sound, both these are there to create as complete a sonic space so the game is more than just left and right sounds. A high level of sonic space lets you pinpoint the location of the origin of the sound, which naturally lets you know where other players are placed, a lot better. This mixed in with some models that have Active Noise Cancelation makes the digital environment even clearer.
All the Razer headphones have microphones built into them, either a cardioid boom mic which is bendable or internal beamforming mics. Generally, the brand has more options for USB tethered headphones, but they also do have wireless headphones which can be run off a battery.
Another interesting feature is the Hypesense Intelligent Haptics. This combines some vibration with your sound so you can feel a lot more of the digital world in real-time. As interesting as this feature is, it may not be for everyone.
Only a few models feature RGB lights on them.
One can even opt for the Star Wars Stormtrooper design or the Overwatch Lucio Edition.
Overall the sound quality, design and build of Razer's headphone collection is top end. The prices range from mid to high.
