Razer’s noise-cancelling wireless earbuds are coming to Xbox and PlayStation

To stand out from the many over-ear headsets that Razer has released for consoles, the company is bringing a new version of its Hammerhead wireless earbuds to PlayStation and Xbox in November for $149.99. Each console is getting its own colour treatment of the Hammerhead HyperSpeed (white with blue accents for PlayStation, black with green for Xbox). This model features active noise cancellation and Chroma RGB lighting effects. Included with each is a USB-C audio transmitter along with a USB-C-to-A adapter since the Series X / S consoles don’t have a USB-C port. As you might have anticipated, each version handles connectivity a little differently but both support 2.4GHz wireless and Bluetooth 5.2 for pairing with mobile devices. Razer’s PR lead, Will Powers, told that the Xbox version is the definitive model because it can connect to Xbox consoles plus PlayStation consoles. The Hammerhead HyperSpeed feature dual “environmental noise cancelling” microphones that the company says will provide clear vocals. Razer is no stranger to making gamer-friendly earbuds, particularly for people who game on mobile, but the Hammerhead HyperSpeed aim to deliver more features for console gamers.
