Razer SW:TOR Edition Headset Review



/ 6 years ago

With a slogan of  ‘For Gamers, By Gamers’, Razer create a big image to live up to. This is something that they have done repeatedly for many years by releasing high quality, high performance peripherals aimed at the gaming market.

With the release of the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Old Republic (SW:TOR) which has been developed by RPG Power house BioWare, it is not surprising however, that they decided teamed up with the MMO to release some branded hardware. In total they have designed and released the SW:TOR Gaming Headset, MMO mouse, Gaming Surface and the Keyboard. As far as immersion is concerned in gaming, a headset can be the most important peripheral available, being able to completely immerse someone aurally into the game world.

As one would expect, being a branded product tie in, the price tag can be inflated accordingly as it’s a ‘licensed product’,  but can Razer deliver a product that not only looks good, but whose quality and performance can also be justified by the price tag?

This review will be focussing on the headset and answering just that.

    They look quite nice & probably deserve their award. Although a gamer myself I wouldn’t buy game branded accessories because quite frankly the novelty wears off (for me that is).
