Practicality is the main selling point offered by a wireless earphone. But the absence of the cable often leads to miss sync while being used for gaming sessions. Because the audio presented is often out of sync with what appears on the screen.
The struggle is what Razer wants to tackle by releasing the Hammerhead True Wireless to the market. This device comes with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity that has been specifically modified.
Combined with a feature called Gaming Mode, True Wireless Hammerhead can deliver latencies as low as 60 milliseconds, so the audio won’t sound too late from what appears on the screen.
Not just for playing games, Gaming Mode will also be very useful when users are watching movies. Long story short, latency, which is classified as very low, will always ensure audio runs in sync with the video.
Bluetooth earphones generally have a latency of 200ms so when compared, True Wireless Hammerhead Latency is low. Razer also uses a Custom 13mm driver to produce better audio overall with clear treble & mids and satisfying bass.
By design, Razer Hammerhead True Wireless has many similarities to the AirPods but it is slightly superior because it has IPX4 water resistance certification. Just like AirPods, its operation also relies on touch controls on the outside of each unit, and it can also be used to call voice assistants on mobile phones.
Besides, Hammerhead True Wireless also has a touch panel on the back to control playback. In one charge, Hammerhead True Wireless can only last for 3 hours of use, while the charging case can supply 12 hours of extra power.
The main attraction of the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds is the price. Razer marketed their product for only $ 99.99. The price is cheaper than the Amazon Echo, which costs $ 130 or Apple AirPods, which starts at $ 159.
