Gaming specialist Razer has unveiled its latest audio system: the new Nommo V2 speaker and subwoofer combination. The new setup is designed specifically for gamers, with two 3-inch drivers designed to deliver high-quality audio for the ever-growing gaming market.
According to Razer, the Nommo V2 Pro can fire a maximum sound pressure level (SPL) of 99dB without distortion, a figure the company boasts is the “equivalent of a train approaching a subway platform”. Good news for your gaming experience, bad news for anyone who happens to be within a three-mile radius of your all-night Duty session.
One of the great features of the Nommo V2 is spatial audio thanks to THX. Razer claims this is the first 2.1 desktop speaker with THX Spatial, meaning you should receive an audio profile that’s more spatially aligned with what’s happening on screen.
The system’s wireless downward-firing subwoofer, meanwhile, has a 5.5-inch driver for powerful bass, though Razer recommends placing it ten feet from the right speaker for optimal audio transmission.
Control comes courtesy of the Razer wireless control pod which can adjust volume, mute/unmute, play/pause, skip to the next track, power on/off, as well as switch between audio sources and adjust EQ settings.
What about that much advertised RGB lighting? The Nommo V2 rear projection features an ambient awareness mode, which means the speaker’s lighting reacts in real time to what’s on screen and then mimics the colors accordingly. So suppose you are trekking through the jungle Far cry 6the V2 speakers project a leafy green onto your station for a more immersive tropical experience.
The new system features Bluetooth 5.3 and supports standard SBC and AAC formats. There’s also cross-platform compatibility for PC, PS5 and PS4 (via USB), though Xbox is conspicuously absent.
The V2 line launches with three different set-ups: the Nommo V2, the Nommo V2 Pro and the Nommo V2 X. The standard V2 has a wired subwoofer but no control pod, while the Nommo V2 X only includes speakers and does not include the subwoofer or control pod. The V2 Pro is the complete set, consisting of the wireless subwoofer, the wireless control unit and the main speakers themselves.
The Nommo V2 will be available from June 2023. The Nommo V2 X will cost £149.99 / $149.99 / AU$269.95, with the control pod available to purchase separately for $49.99. The V2 costs £249.99 / $299.99 / AU$439.95 and a standalone control pod can also be added for $49.99. Finally, the V2 Pro pack costs a total of £399.99 / $449.99 / AU$699.95.
