Razer has released a file The first set of true wireless earbuds In 2019, the main attraction was the low latency mode which made it more suitable for mobile games. Now, the company is ready with its second pair, Hammerhead True Wireless Pro, which will go on sale today for $ 199.99 and add active noise cancellation and THX audio certification to the mix. “Hammerhead True Wireless Pro uses hybrid ANC technology to cancel out unwanted, external internal noise by simultaneously generating opposite sound waves,” Razer wrote in his press release for New Shoots.

Passive noise isolation also helps there, and Razer has switched to a convenient in-ear design – in contrast to the open AirPods-esque style of the original Hammerhead True Wireless. (There is a “quick attention mode” for external audio streaming when you want to hear what’s happening near you. (Along with the usual silicone options)six Various sets of them), the company includes a set of Comply Medium Sponge Ear Tips in the box to help you get the most secure and possible fit to improve sound quality.

The Hammerhead True Wireless Pro is IPX4 rated for water and sweat resistance, and Razer says it lasts up to 20 hours in total given the condition; The earbuds can reach four hours of continuous listening, about an hour less than competitors such as AirPods Pro and Bose QuietComfort Earbuds. There is also no wireless charging, which is disappointing to see at this level. You can control the buds with the Razer’s touch-sensitive logo button on each one.

As for THX certification, Razer says, “Fine details like frequency range and response are evaluated, and the device should be able to deliver clear, detailed, and impactful deep bass without distortion at high volume levels.” Hammerhead True Wireless Pro features 10mm drivers and still includes a game mode that the company claims can cut latency in half “compared to other true wireless earphones that support SBC / AAC codecs.” Razer isn’t the only one offering the low latency mode; Samsung and OnePlus also reduce response time to gaming audio when using their earphones and phones together.

The Hammerhead True Wireless Pro has a decent price tag to its name of $ 199.99, which places it firmly in the upper tier of true wireless earbuds. That’s a little less than the usual cost of Sony’s 1000XM3 earphones or newer options like the Jabra Elite 85t, but the holiday deals and discounts will likely end up putting all of these at par. I’ll be checking them out over the coming days to see how they face the noise canceling competition for gaming purposes and everything else.
