Last year, Razer entered the fully wireless headphone market with the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless. Now the manufacturer has announced the release of a second model – Hammerhead True Wireless Pro.
Unlike the original Hammerhead True Wireless earbuds, the new model with the Pro prefix, by analogy with Apple AirPods Pro, Huawei FreeBuds Pro and other competitors, is already made in the form factor of in-ear plugs.
Among the key features of the new model are Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), supplemented by an intelligent system that, depending on the situation, enhances or suppresses the “penetration” of ambient sounds (there is a special “quick attention mode” if you need to hear what is happening nearby), and support THX technology. For better isolation from external sounds, two microphones are built into the headphones to detect the noise level.
In addition, the manufacturer has made a number of design improvements over the original and offers a variety of replacement ear pads – along with the regular silicone (six different sizes), a set of Comply memory foam mid-ear cushions are included to help you find the best fit.
Hammerhead True Wireless Pro headphones are equipped with 10 mm dynamic emitters, and for connection to a sound source is a Bluetooth 5.1 interface. Separately, the manufacturer allocates a special game mode (activated by pressing a button) with a low latency of up to 60 ms – half that of competing models with support for SBC and AAC codecs, Razer emphasizes.
The headphone protection is still IPX4. The case has become larger and the fit has changed – now the headphones are placed in it vertically, rather than horizontally.
Hammerhead True Wireless Pro battery life is up to 4 hours with noise canceling on. Together with the supplied case with a built-in battery, you can get up to 20 hours. And according to this indicator, the new Razer loses to competitors. For comparison, the AirPods Pro has a 24 hour rate.
Another clear drawback of the Hammerhead True Wireless Pro is the lack of support for wireless charging technology.
The earbuds support gesture control (touch pads with the Razer logo on the back of each earbud) and voice control.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro is already available for purchase on the company’s official website for $ 200. That is, the Pro version turned out to be exactly twice as expensive as the original model.
