Razer Hammerhead BT - First Look

May 16, 2017

Razer is a well known name among hardcore PC gamers. In the process of developing and innovating in the gaming mice and keyboards domain, they have also been constantly polishing products in the audio category. April 2017 saw the launch of the Razer Hammerhead BT, a wireless follow up to their Hammerhead Pro V2. Let's check out what this offers. 

Type - Wireless In-Ears 
Price - USD 99 / GBP 99 / SGD 169

Hammerhead BT vs Hammerhead Pro V2
Now before we check out what these wireless buds offer, we do a quick comparison with the Pro V2 to see a quick (and rough) summary of the differences. 

1. Wireless vs Wired
This is a no brainer but still necessitates a mention :) The 130cm cable of the Pro V2 is now a much shorter 63cm that now rests around your neck. 

2. Shirt Clip / Battery Unit
The battery unit lies in the middle of the cable connecting the buds. You can connect them with a shirt clip that you magnetically latch onto your shirt.

3. General Aesthetics
The cables are now striped green and black instead of pure green. And with the added power, the BT is marginally heftier at 28g while the wired Pro V2 weighs 20g.

In A Nutshell
Here are 3 points that tell summarize the Razer Hammerhead BT's capabilities:

1. Bassy Sound
The Razer Hammerhead BT boasts 10mm drivers that are aimed at 'Hammering In The Bass'. If its predecessor is anything to go by, you can expect an emphasis on low frequencies. Bassheads will likely love this.

2. Battery Unit (Where Is It?)
For wireless in-ears, many manufacturers usually implement the battery unit either in the earbud piece (like the Bose SoundSport Wireless) or on the in-line remote (such as the Jaybird Freedom Wireless). Razer has taken a different approach. As mentioned earlier, they actually placed the battery unit in the middle of the cable. When combined with the shirt clip, this potentially reduces the microphonics. Oh, and the battery lasts a very decent 8 hours. 

3. Signature Lights!
Razer's signature lighting glow found on their gaming mice can now be found on its in-ear earphones. There's a green pulsating glow from the Razer logo on the outer earbuds during usage and this turns red when charging. Very nice. Now where's the Chroma earphone variant?
