Razer’s latest true wireless earbuds are AirPods Pros for gamers

Razer’s latest pair of true wireless in-ears are giving us serious Apple AirPods Pro 2 vibes, which could be good news for gamers. The Hammerhead Pro Hyperspeed, not to be confused with Razer’s Hammerhead Hyperspeed or Hammerhead True Wireless Pro, is the company’s fifth pair of true wireless earbuds, and they aim to take your gaming audio to the next level.

The Hammerhead Pro Hyperspeed has a 10mm driver in each bud and a frequency response of 20Hz – 20kHz, these are slightly smaller than the 11mm drivers found on the AirPods Pro 2. They also have the THX Certified Audio seal of approval which, according to Razer, means they’ve met a plethora of standards in “real-world listening environments” to achieve the “gold standard of all audio certifications”; However, given that Razer bought THX in 2016, we’d expect this to be the case.

Razer has packed these gaming buds with a host of features that should give you the edge over the competition, namely a near-lag-free, low-latency wireless connection via its namesake Hyperspeed 2.4 GHz dongle. Speaking of the dongle, it uses a USB-C connection, meaning you can connect to a PC, PS5, Nintendo Switch and most Android phones or tablets, or you can use Bluetooth 5.3 if you’re planning on connect it to an iPhone or iPad.
