For a gaming company that manufactures products with RGB LEDs and the triple-snake logo, the Opus over-the-ear headphones come as a gulp of fresh air as Razer, for the first time, has gone with a clean and sophisticated look for its product, which really makes these cans all the more enticing.
The main highlight of these over-the-ear headphones is the THX Certification, which means these are certified for delivering theater-like sound quality. For this, Razer teamed up with THX and ran extensive tests on the Opus to help it earn its THX certification. “The result is a high-performance wireless headphone that delivers a rich, balanced soundstage, clear vocals, and deep impactful bass optimized for music, games, and movies,” says Peter Vasay, head of THX certification.
Apart from that, the Razer Opus feature 40mm drivers and an “Advanced Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation", which uses a total of four microphones to block the outside noise. The headphones use plush leatherette (faux-leather) ear cups along with a headband cushion for a comfortable fit.
The headphones are rated for 25 hours of playback with ANC and come with Bluetooth 4.2 support. There's also a dedicated 3.5mm headphone jack so that you can always plug the headphones directly if the battery runs out. The headphones also support AAC, APTX, A2DP, AVRCP, and HFP codecs.
The Razer Opus headphones are available in North America, Europe, China, and Asian Pacific markets starting today at either $199 or €210 (roughly ₹15,087) from Razer.com and Amazon. These are available in two shades - Midnight Blue and Black.
