Razer Ferox portable gaming speakers

Razer Ferox portable gaming speakers




Razer sent us these pretty little speakers they called Ferox all the way from Singapore. Razer is very well known for creating kick-ass gaming accessories like keyboards and mice so I thought this portable gaming speakers would follow the same genetic make-up.

The speakers come with a simple packaging but once you take it out of the box, you’ll definitely notice the good build quality, design and craftsmanship that was put in to make one of these (definitely not just like your typical X-Mini speakers).

Razer Ferox
Frequency Response: 150Hz – 20kHz
Drivers: 30mm Neodymium magnets
2 x 3watt loudspeakers
470mAh rechargeable batteries

Each piece is shaped like an inverted coffee cup with the bottom part serving as a base that lights up (with a blue color) when the speakers are powered on. The smooth and mostly matte surface is accented with dark glossy bands around the top and bottom ends.


 

The diaphragm is located at the top end where you can press down to open or close (when stowing them away). The two pieces are joined by a meter-long threaded cable attached from one end by mini-USB ports and a 3.5mm jack on the other end along with a full USB plug for re-charging the built-in batteries (just plug it into ny USB port of your laptop or PC).

The speakers are designed to be omni-directional so you get maximum output however you position the pieces. Relative to its size, the Ferox speakers produce really great sound quality — it’s got a wide volume range, clear and crisp audio at the low and mid levels, and does not sound tin-ny at maximum volume.

There’s enough bass to it but not very much (I must admit I have very high expectations considering this is Razer) but you’ll feel the oomph when it’s called for. And since the the speakers are omni-directional, you get a good and clear reception at any angle or position.

Razer claims up to 12 hours of playback on a single full charge and we’re getting a little under that depending on the volume level.

The Razer Ferox sells for $59.99 in the Razer online store but you should be able to grab one of these in local stores for similar price (comes with a carrying case, trying to get the SRP from local distributor). The Razer Ferox was made for gaming enthusiasts (if you have an Alienware gaming laptop, this could be a great addition) but you can practically just use it for music or movie playback as a companion to your laptop or iPad.

    Abe, can you do a subjective comparison of how it sounds versus the common desktop (but smaller) speaker models available? ex. any 2.0 Creative/Altec/Logitech/Edifier

  10. It’s my first time to see this gadget. Looks great, but hope that it does in output.

  12. ty says:

    which is louder? this one? or the X minimax 2?

  13. yuga says:

    @ty – x-miimax2 is like 2 watts ata while this one is 3watts. so technically, this one should be louder.

  14. GMV says:

    Sir, which local store sells this?

  15. eZMe says:

    i think altec BXR1220 is better than this

  16. erickkk says:

    150Hz

    Specs-wise, the low-end must be sounding bad.

  17. qwertyqaz says:

    hmm…minimax2 still trumps this in the bass and over-all audio

    form goes to ferox and the razer name
