Razer’s Hammerhead True Wireless X delivers low-latency audio at £ 70
Razer is back with its latest product, the Hammerhead True Wireless X. As you can probably tell by the name, these are a true pair of wireless headphones and they are part of Razer’s current lineup.
Who understands the original Hammerhead True Wireless which was released in 2019, as well as the Professional model which was launched last year. These new headphones are quite similar to the original model, but there are a few changes.
They come with the new charging case you get with the Pros, and they don’t have the same water resistance as the Pros or the originals. And that’s probably why they come at a cheaper price. It should be noted, however, that these only appear to be available in the UK at the moment.
If you are looking to get your hands on a pair, you can purchase them directly from Razer UK website for £ 69.99, and they should also be heading to Amazon UK at some point, as there are a lot of Razer products that end up on Amazon.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X features custom LEDs and drivers
Another big change that wasn’t on Razer’s first pair of wireless headphones are the LEDs. LED-lit three-snake logos are on almost every Razer product these days. Although the company does offer a few things that try to be more subtle and have ditched this particular feature.
The Hammerhead True Wireless X comes with the LED illuminated logo, present on each ear cup. This is also where you’ll find the sofa controls, which should be exactly the same as on the other two pairs of headphones. This includes activating the game mode by pressing the touch control three times and holding it down for two seconds on the last tap.
It is also possible to activate game mode from the Razer app, although this may be less convenient. These new headphones will not have the ambient mode offered by the pros, nor will they have other benefits. Then again, the Pros cost over £ 160 (they cost $ 199.99 in the US), so it’s understandable that Razer chose to leave a few features outside of the Model X.
It is not yet clear whether these will launch in the United States or other regions. But Razer would be unlikely to launch a more mainstream product like this in a single country. Excluding the special Pikachu Hammerhead True Wireless of course, which was only officially launched in China and Singapore.
