Razer has been manufacturing gaming peripherals since forever, but the company’s latest pair of headphones isn’t just made for the gaming crowd. The Razer Opus seems to be geared more towards general audio enjoyment too.
Boasting THX certification (a Razer subsidiary), the Razer Opus are a pair of wireless headphones that have active noise cancellation (ANC) capabilities. According to the company, the Opus is a premium device that is aimed to deliver crystal clear audio with a broad and balanced soundscape. That means you’ll get to enjoy high quality, regardless of the sound or music genre you’re listening to.
Packed with two 40mm drivers, the Razer Opus also comes equipped with the company’s Advanced Hybrid Active Noise Cancelling system. What this does is that it uses four ANC microphones to cancel out noise from the outside world. These headphones also come with memory foam leatherette ear cushions to further reduce outside noise and provide comfort.
Instead of Ambient Noise, Razer is calling their surrounding listening feature “Quick Attention”. This is a feature that lets the user listen to ambient noise surrounding them when activated. The headphones also has wear detection, so when the headphones are removed, the audio would pause and resume when the headphones are worn back on.
Being a headphone that is made for general audio enjoyment and not just gaming, the Razer Opus also comes with a 3.5mm audio jack (wired mode), an aeroplane adapter, as well as a carry case. The headphones also boast a battery life of up to 25 hours on a single charge.
