Gaming accessories maker, Razer has announced their first pair of wireless headphones with the Razer Opus.
“Even with our many years of experience in creating headsets for one of the most demanding audiences in the world, the design of the Razer Opus required us to rethink every detail,” said Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Peripherals Business Unit. “With the Razer Opus headphones, we are able to deliver a listening experience that will satisfy even the most discerning audiophile, in any environment.”
The Razer Opus offers Advanced Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation which can easily block out external noise with four dedicated ANC microphones.
These headphones are the first that are THX Certified, which is meant to have the highest possible audio standards.
“Through close collaboration with the Opus design team, we were able to provide input throughout the development process,” said Peter Vasay, Head of THX Certification. “The result is a high-performance wireless headphone that delivers a rich, balanced soundstage, clear vocals, and deep impactful bass optimized for music, games, and movies.”
The headphones offer low weight and plush leatherette foam ear cushions and headband. Battery life is around 25 hours with ANC on and there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack for wider compatibility. There’s also a USB-C port on the Opus headphones but no quick charging support.
In the box, you’ll get the headphones, a carrying case, 3.5mm audio cable and charging cable.
The Razer Opus headphones are available now from the company’s website for $269 CAD ($199 USD). The headphones are available in North America, Europe, China, and Asia Pacific.
