Razer launches hammerhead True Wireless Pro

 


Razer has proven to be capable of designing powerful, wire-free earbuds by launching Hammerhead True Wireless. These $99 headphones follow in the footsteps of Apple's AirPods, but they stand out at a lower price and a design that cares more about players.

After Apple launched the AirPods Pro, Razer decided to re-launch hammerhead True Wireless Pro, a $199.99 pair of headphones. This pair adds other features such as the provision of hoods installed on the speaker's head, and the active noise cancellation feature (called ANC). These features may seem amazing to you, but they actually share the same similar vulnerabilities with their affordable counterparts, for example, anANC property is not worth the extra price we pay for these headphones.

Hammerhead True Wireless Pro design:


Hammerhead True Wireless headphones mimic the same AirPods design that consists not only of head and body, but also the new version of the Pro, as Apple did in AirPods Pro.

These covers are very useful for raising sound quality, because the headers of regular Hammerhead speakers do not contain these covers, which may result in blurred and static sound (the same applies to regular AirPods).

Razer offers three pairs of SecureSeal covers made of transparent silicone, and these covers come in three different sizes made to close the ear canal completely, so it has better sound quality. The headphones, too, come with three different pairs of SmoothComfort black silicone covers, to give you more comfort when worn for long periods, as well as a pair of Comply Spongia covers, which completely close your ear canal.

Although Razer offers seven pairs of headcoverings with these headphones, it doesn't offer fin-shaped earphones or headphone stabilizers. Headcoverings help keep the earphones in place, but they can move easily. This problem can be solved by purchasing fin-shaped earbuds that are installed in the ear, which are very useful, especially if you want to wear headphones while exercising.

Speaking of exercise, it's worth noting that these headphones are classified as IPX4 compliant, which means they are fairly water resistant and sweat tolerant, but that doesn't mean they're submerged in water and made wet.

Alien controls:


Each headset on its back has a sensitive touch panel, etched on this green Razer logo back. Click on this panel with one click to answer and end calls, or turn the media on and off, two clicks to go to the following media, click three clicks to turn back, and press a long two-second tap to go to active noise cancellation mode, turn on speakers manually, or activate your phone's voice assistance service. You can also tap the board with three clicks and make your last click a two-second push to play game mode, which Razer says reduces the delay time that occurs when the speakers are connected to the device.

 


 The panels are weird to use, sometimes they don't record clicks, and sometimes they record clicks you didn't mean in the first place when you tried to install the speaker in the ear or adjust it. Each headset has the same functions, so, for example, the speakers lack volume controls, so you have to use your phone or any other device that connects the speaker to adjust the volume. Because of these inaccurate touchboards and the lack of volume controls, this speaker design is the worst of the recently released wireless speakers.

Charging case and battery life:


The charging case is a fairly round rectangular charger, with an LED indicator at the front, and a USB-C port at the bottom. Headphones are placed in their designated areas, which makes it a bit difficult to remove from the clipboard, especially if your fingers are large. I got stuck more than once trying to get the speakers out of the clipboard, and often accidentally pressed the touch controls.

Razer says the speakers can hold you four hours outside the clipboard, and the charging clipboard can provide you with an extra 16 hours at a time, but this will vary depending on the volume you'll set and activate the ANC mode.

Noise cancellation and sound performance:


Noise cancellation technology is not the best, although the speakers are expensive. The speakers emit a light shafwhen the music is not playing, and don't isolate you too much from external noise. AirPods Pro is superior to it, it blocks sound, and even the cheaper Panasonic RZ-S500W and Sony WF-SP800N are superior to them in noise-blocking and hum. Razer

Hammerhead True Wireless Pro isn't the perfect speaker for those who want the best noise-cancelling performance, but if you can choose the most appropriate pair of head for your ear size (and take advantage of the Comply pair) you'll find that their noise-blocking performance is better than adjusting the speakers to ANC mode.

When it comes to bass, the speakers will provide you with powerful and stunning performance. The speakers passed our bass test, the songs of The Knife's Silent Shout album, in this test adjusting the sound to the highest level and the sound appeared without any distortion, as well as testing it on the sound of the drumming, and the sound was great.

We also tested the opening sound of music in "Roundabout" for the "Yes" guitar band, and found that the sound appears in Hammerhead Pro speakers with good resonance at low to medium frequencies, but the sound appears strong at high to medium frequencies.

The resolution is not high at the higher frequencies, and that's not what we like to hear in clear strong tones, yet the resolution in the sound is still good. When we start playing songs, the deep bass sounds begin to appear, the guitar sounds and drums can be clearly discerned in the mix, and the vocal sounds are clear, too, so that the overall acoustic output is clear and balanced.
