Mobile gamers looking for an improved audio experience will want to check out Razer’s latest offering the Razer Hammerhead Duo. The new headset, revealed yesterday, features two audio drivers that work together to create a balanced sound. The Dynamic Driver provides deep bass while the Balanced Armature Driver pushes bright, hi-frequency sounds.
This allows for better sound separation and the production of distortion-free audio that will show through no matter what kind of media is being listened to.
“The Hammerhead Duo primes dual driver technology to become a standard for mobile audio users,” said Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “It delivers a clear and precise audio experience in a comfortable form factor that perfectly meets the demands of daily use no matter where you are.”
Despite having dual drivers, the headset is designed to be light, slim, and comfortable to use. The body is made up of an aluminum frame and braided cables. It also comes with three different silicone tip sizes, allowing the user to find the perfect fit for their ear. It uses a standard 3.5mm jack that will work across most platforms and features an inline control volume and play/pause control.
For those wanting to use the headset with the Nintendo Switch, there’s a second version, the Razer Hammerhead Duo — Compatible with the Nintendo Switch. This version is built specifically for the Nintendo console and includes an inline microphone with a mute switch. It also comes with a carrying case.
Aside from the audio control options and case, both versions are effectively the same. The only other difference is that the Razer logo is green on the regular version while the logo on the Switch version is in silver.
While the regular version of the Hammerhead Duo is available on the Razer site now, those wanting the Switch version will need to wait until June. The good news is that both versions are the same price — $59.99 USD.
