Razer Designs Hammerhead Ultra-Low-Latency True Wireless Earbuds for Gaming Audio

October 30 2019, 00:20
Razer, the lifestyle brand for gamers, announced the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless earbuds, using a customized Bluetooth 5.0 design that, according to the company, delivers ultra-low latency, high quality audio and extended battery life. Featuring an ergonomic loose-fit design akin to the AirPods, Razer believes the Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds will not only eliminate audio lag but can be also more convenient.

This is certainly a first, since low-latency is not normally associated with true wireless, and gaming headphones that provide an advantage to gamers have been traditionally over-ear designs that provide an immersive experience to the user. The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless earbuds have been purposely designed for immersive audio for games, movies and music, without the annoying lag, stutter and sync problems that plagues other Bluetooth devices. Using a customized ultra-low latency Bluetooth 5.0 connection, the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless delivers clear audio with a Gaming Mode reducing latency to just 60ms.

“The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless earbuds are the perfect wireless audio solution for mobile users,” says Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer's peripherals business unit. “Users will have rich, immersive lag-free sound for their movies, music and gaming, without wires to get tangled or snagged as they go.”

With a 13mm driver and a 20-20kHz frequency response, the Razer Hammerhead TWS deliver a broad soundscape with beefy bass through to top-end clarity to get the maximum out of music, films and games. With the ultra-low latency Gaming Mode enabled, the users’ sound and video will stay perfectly synched for a completely immersive experience.

The earbuds have a 3-hour battery life, with up to 4 charges from the included battery/carry case, for 15 hours in total. Charged via USB-C, the carry case will automatically charge the earbuds when not in use. Bluetooth wireless use range is up to 10m / 30 ft.

An easy-to-use mobile app for iOS and Android allows users to pair and customize the Hammerhead True Wireless earbuds, change the voice prompt language or learn to use the touch gestures. Once paired, the Hammerhead True Wireless will automatically connect to the paired device each time they are taken from the case, thanks to Bluetooth 5.0 auto pairing. The earbus also offer touch controls and voice assistant compatibility, and are IPX4 rated for sweat/splash protection.

The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless earbuds are available now for just $99.99 USD MSRP
