Razer, today announced the launch of the new Barracuda and Barracuda Pro, along with a refresh of the existing Barracuda X. The new family of street-styled gaming headsets comes packed with cutting edge technologies like Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation Technology (ANC).
You get hardware upgrades in the form of the new Razer TriForce Bio-Cellulose 50mm drivers, which deliver a rich, natural and detailed soundscape. For pure, undiluted sound, the headset features its own built-in amplifier, the world-class THX Achromatic Audio Amplifier (THX AAATM), to ensure ultra-low distortion, improved signal-to-noise ratio, a greater dynamic range, better power output, and more detail and clarity for music lovers. It also offers THX Spatial Audio.
For vocal clarity, Barracuda Pro employs dual integrated beamforming noise-cancelling microphones, that have been fine-tuned for peak vocal pick-up. This is further supported by three levels of active noise-suppression, selectable through the companion Razer Audio App.
Using Razer SmartSwitch Dual Wireless, the Barracuda Pro can be connected to two devices at the same time, switching seamlessly between the two as needed. This allows a user to game on their PC, and with a single button press, switch the Barracuda Pro to take a call without the need to unpair and pair between devices. All Barracuda models support both Razer HyperSpeed Wireless (2.4GHz) and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, for high-speed gaming performance and mobile-friendly Bluetooth convenience.
Announced today alongside the Barracuda Pro is the new Razer Barracuda. Featuring Razer’s TriForce Titanium 50mm drivers and THX Spatial Audio, the Barracuda delivers detailed and punchy sound, bringing movies and games to life. The FlowKnit Memory Foam headband and earcup padding allow for long-term comfortable wear, with the on-headset controls easily within reach for access to the headset functions.
It features the same Razer SmartSwitch Dual Wireless connectivity and Integrated Beamforming microphone unit with noise cancellation, like the Barracuda Pro. You get up to 40 hours of wireless use on a single battery charge. If you want more, you can always switch to the 3.5mm analog inputs.
Rounding out the new additions to the Barracuda family of products is the refreshed Barracuda X. Full Bluetooth support has been added through the inclusion of Razer SmartSwitch Dual Wireless, while battery life has been improved up to 50 hours of use on a single charge.
With a detachable HyperClear cardioid microphone, 40mm Razer Triforce Drivers and support for 7.1 Surround Sound, the Barracuda X is the perfect lightweight all-round multi-platform gaming headset.
The Barracuda Pro, Barracuda and Barracuda X are the latest additions to Razers popular range of wireless headsets using the latest proprietary technologies such as SmartSwitch, and THX AAA, to offer a superior experience to users. With headsets that will let users enjoy music and games while being connected to multiple devices at once, the new Razer Barracuda range is the perfect companion for everyone who wants to bring their sound with them wherever they go.
