Razer Has Announced A Set Of $370 THX-Certified Gaming Earbuds

Fix up, look shark,

As someone who uses a set of the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless on the regular for video calls and the like, they’ve quickly become a favourite of mine – and that’s coming from someone who rarely gels with in-ear buds.

Still, even the just-announced Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed might give me pause at a whole $369.95 AUD.

For that money, you’re getting a pretty impressive set of buds though, updating the Hammerhead form factor with a massive feature set including a cross-platform HyperSpeed Wireless Dongle delivery 2.4GHz connectivity across a number of devices with a latency of less than 40ms, as well as Bluetooth 5.3, adjustable hybrid active noise cancellation, THX Certified audio and of course – Razer Chroma RGB.

The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless earbuds will have up to a 6.5 hour battery life and an additional 24 hours from the charging case, dependant on the RGB/noise cancelling/connection features being used.

These will be coming to Australia “soon” but you can already order now for early June delivery from the Razer website.
