Razer Opus announced, with THX certification and ANC
Razer is releasing a new pair of ANC wireless headphones with THX certification, the Razer Opus.
Uncharacteristically, Razer has kept a simpler design with the Opus, straying away from RGB lighting and their iconic three-snake logo. The earcups and headband cushion are lined with plush leatherette foam and are designed to provide a pressure-point free fit.
Audio is handled by two 40mm dynamic drivers paired with two mics for voice chat. The hybrid active noise cancellation, on the other hand, is handled by four dedicated mics.
According to Razer, “To achieve the stringent requirements for THX certification, fine details such as a frequency range and response must be capable of delivering clear, detailed vocals and deep impactful bass with zero distortion at high volumes. The result is a pair of headphones that delivers crystal clear audio with a broad, perfectly balanced soundscape.”
The Razer Opus can connect via Bluetooth 4.2, can last up to 25 hours with ANC turned, and via traditional 3.5mm audio jack.
The Razer Opus will be available through Razer’s website, Razer Stores, and other authorized retailers in North America, Europe, China, and the Asia Pacific for an MSRP of USD 199.99 or EUR 209.99.
