Razer lifted the veil on an all-new gaming headset at an online press conference.
The manufacturer has indeed unveiled its Barraduca X, a gaming headset that tries to meet all the needs of gamers, or almost.
A wireless headset that is as light as a feather
Razer is back with a new headset dedicated to gamers, the Barracuda X, a model that strives to be as light as possible. With a weight of only 250 grams on the scale, it is indeed positioned as a lighter alternative than most of its competitors, such as the Logitech G733 Lightspeed, or the HyperX Cloud II Wireless .
We also note that the ergonomics of this headset seems rather good, especially with the ear cups capable of rotating 90 ° on the vertical axis.
Despite the fact that it is ” designed to be as light as possible “, its main advantage lies rather in its versatility.
Finally a fully versatile helmet?
Compatibility with different gaming platforms is unfortunately not always very wide with wireless gaming headsets. Razer has however thought of everything with its Barracuda X, first by allowing wired operation via a 3.5 mm jack cable, but also thanks to a USB-C dongle that adapts equally well to smartphones , game consoles and PC gamer .
Finally, a USB-A to USB-C extension cable will be supplied with the headset for devices that do not have USB Type-C connectors. Bluetooth is not on the menu, however.
On the audio side, Razer here employs 40mm Triforce transducers with a frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz, while the detachable microphone is cardioid type and will benefit from the manufacturer’s Hyperclear technology. No surprise about the autonomy, it can go up to 20 hours of continuous use, it seems difficult to ask for more on this point given the weight of the helmet.
