Razer is one of the top brands for gaming accessories and gear -- including a range of gaming headphones. So a set of wireless earbuds is a natural fit in their lineup. They come at a top-tier price; do they have top-tier features?
Razer prides itself upon its designs. The earbuds feature a fairly substantial stem on the bottom of the earbuds, making it easier to insert and remove the buds.
However, reviewers stated that this was both good and bad. These stems did make the buds easy to remove, but they also got caught on things easily, such as hair, masks, and clothing.
The case bothered reviewers the most. Its glossy finish was slippery, making it near impossible to open without using both hands.
Razer’s Hammerhead True Wireless Pro earbuds have comfort on their side because of a collaboration with an ear tip manufacturer. They come with several different tip options, including a grippier version for active movement and a memory foam option for extreme comfort and seal.
Reviewers found the THX-certified audio from these earbuds outstanding. If you’re not happy with the sound out of the box, the companion app makes it easy to adjust the sound with an equalizer or choose from a few pre-programmed modes.
Razer offers a gaming mode that promises to alleviate the lag frequently associated with Bluetooth audio. Reviewers considered it very hit or miss but added there wasn’t much latency to begin with. Reviewers also found the lack of gesture controls frustrating given the price of the earbuds.
According to reviewers, the battery life is dismal. Razer promises 3 hours of continuous listening. There is also no wireless charging. You’ll have to keep cables around to top off your earbuds throughout the day.
The noise cancellation left a lot to be desired by reviewers. Depending on the tips used, the seal wasn’t always enough to keep the sound out. Given that sound isolation was one of the main selling points for these earbuds, it’s a big letdown.
You get seven different ear tip options out of the box, standard silicone, a rougher textured style for exercise and high activity, and a medium set of Comply foam tips. Reviewers found the Comply tips best for seal and noise cancellation.
In standard Razer fashion, the design is both nice looking and functional. But things go downhill when you look at the price. Top brands from other companies offer a lot more for the same price. Reviewers agree that with a lower price tag, the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro buds would be a steal, but that at their current price they fall flat.
The Verge says, “They sound quite good across all sorts of music, Razer goes above and beyond with ear tips, and I didn’t mention other bonuses like a two-year warranty. They’re a big improvement over the original Hammerhead True Wireless buds. But they’re outshined in the $200 category that they live in right now. Middle-of-the-road ANC and battery life on the short side drag them down to a point where it’s hard to reconcile performance and cost.”
SoundGuys stated, “Razer didn’t remedy all the issues that afflict the original Hammerhead True Wireless, though; the plastic still feels cheap and the case is very slippery, but the company learned from its previous true wireless venture, and that’s promising. True wireless earbuds at large still struggle to maintain a solid connection, especially when outside, but Razer did a great job with the Hammerhead True Wireless Pro, which never skipped a beat.”
