Razer Unveil New Barracuda Gaming Headsets

Razer has announced the launch of its new Barracuda and Barracuda Pro headset, along with a refresh of the existing Barracuda X. The new family of street-styled gaming headsets comes packed with cutting edge technologies to bring gamers the purest sound whether at home or out and about. Featuring Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation Technology (ANC) the Barracuda Pro provides the user with an uninterrupted audio experience in all surroundings, ideal for intense gaming sessions requiring maximum focus, as well as for anyone wanting to enjoy their music outdoors while muting any distractions from the outside world.

Using Razer SmartSwitch Dual Wireless, the Barracuda Pro can be connected to two devices at the same time, switching seamlessly between the two as needed. This allows a user to game on their PC, and with a single button press, switch the Barracuda Pro to take a call without the need to unpair and pair between devices. All Barracuda models support both Razer HyperSpeed Wireless (2.4 GHz) and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, for high-speed gaming performance and mobile-friendly Bluetooth convenience.

Whether calling shots in-game or checking in with family and friends on the phone, the Barracuda Pro gives crystal clear voice communication thanks to its dual integrated beamforming noise-cancelling microphones, that have been fine-tuned for peak vocal pick-up. This is further supported by three levels of active noise suppression, selectable through the companion Razer Audio App.

The new Razer TriForce Bio-Cellulose 50 mm drivers featured in the Barracuda Pro deliver a rich, natural and detailed soundscape. For pure, undiluted sound, the headset features its own built-in amplifier, the world-class THX Achromatic Audio Amplifier (THX AAATM), to ensure ultra-low distortion, improved signal-to-noise ratio, a greater dynamic range, better power output, and more detail and clarity for music lovers. It also offers THX Spatial Audio, providing excellent in-game sound to give gamers a more immersive experience and lifelike audio for listening to music and movies as well.


Hybrid headset with high-end sound
Announced today alongside the Barracuda Pro is the new Razer Barracuda. Featuring Razer’s TriForce Titanium 50 mm drivers and THX Spatial Audio, the Barracuda delivers detailed and punchy sound, bringing movies and games to life. The FlowKnit Memory Foam headband and earcup padding allow for long-term comfortable wear, with the on-headset controls easily within reach for access to the headset functions.

The Barracuda also features Razer SmartSwitch Dual Wireless connectivity and an Integrated Beamforming microphone with noise cancellation, to give users a versatile, wireless headset, compatible with mulitple devices for up to 40 hours use on a single battery charge. For legacy devices, the Barracuda also supports 3.5 mm analog inputs.

The all-day contender for everyday use
Rounding out the new additions to the Barracuda family of products is the refreshed Barracuda X. Full Bluetooth support has been added through the inclusion of Razer SmartSwitch Dual Wireless, while battery life has been more than doubled and now delivers up to 50 hours of use on a single charge.

With a detachable HyperClear cardioid microphone, 40 mm Razer Triforce Drivers and support for 7.1 Surround Sound, the Barracuda X is the perfect lightweight all-round multi-platform gaming headset.

The Barracuda Pro, Barracuda and Barracuda X are the latest additions to Razers popular range of wireless headsets using the latest proprietary technologies such as SmartSwitch, and THX AAA, to offer a superior experience to users. With headsets that will let users enjoy music and games while being connected to multiple devices at once, the new Razer Barracuda range is the perfect companion for everyone who wants to bring their sound with them wherever they go.
