    Razer’s Tiamat Headset Uses 10 Drivers To Produce 7.1 Sound

    Very few headsets out there are “true” surround sound. Most are traditional stereo headphones with “virtual surround sound” — a process that adds depth and directionality, but delivers it through two speakers. Headphones like Tritton’s and Psyko’s actually use multiple drivers to simulate being in a room with, say, five speaker channels and a subwoofer. Read More

  • Mouse Up And Roll Out With This Transformers-Themed Razer Gear

    The latest Transformers game hasn’t been getting very good reviews, but that doesn’t mean you can’t represent your Cybertron love with some Transformers gaming swag. Razer’s got a new line of Death Adders with Autobot and Decepticon logos and colors, along with a Prime-emblazoned Vespula mousepad and some serious-looking laptop sleeves. Personally I’m not a big… Read More

  • Razer's Old Republic Mouse, Headset, And Keyboard Are Sithy (With Hands-On)

    The Old Republic is, potentially, every Star Wars-loving gamer’s dream. Own your own ship, travel the galaxy, pick a side in an epic conflict… if they pull it off.

  • Razer Subtly Improves Their Goliathus Mouse Mats

    Mousepads haven’t really advanced much for a long time, but it’s worth noting when a nice one like Razer’s Goliathus gets a little tweak. They’ve added a little edge reinforcement to the things so they don’t fray. I found that the greater danger to cloth mats after a long time is dirt and oil soaking in and making it overly reflective (not all sensors are good… Read More

  • Razer's Hydra Motion Controller Gets Priced And Dated

    We first saw the Hydra, then called the Sixense (after the company that originally developed it) back at CES 2010 almost a year and a half ago. I was impressed with it then, as it felt more natural and responsive than a Wiimote (what doesn’t now?), and used a genuinely different and powerful technology. It’s based on magnetic detection of the controller, instead of optical, and it… Read More

  • Razer's Switchblade Gains Traction With Tencent/Intel Alliance

    When the Razer Switchblade first showed up at CES, I have to say I was pretty skeptical — and I’m still skeptical now. Not that they won’t put this thing out, but that they’ll be able to do so for any kind of affordable price. Still, it’s good to know they’re taking serious steps to make it a reality. Today they announced a partnership with Intel and… Read More

  • Review: Razer Ferox Portable Speakers

    Short version: These tiny speakers are more powerful than you’d think, but still not quite capable enough for anything but casual use around the house. Gamers at the very least will be disappointed, though they’re handy for the occasional TV show or spontaneous music-sharing moment. Read More

  • Razer's Chimaera Gaming Headset Shipping In April For $200

    Looking for a new headset for your 360 audio pleasures? You might have heard of the Chimaera when it was announced back at CES. They weren’t quite fully baked back then, but they’re ready for your dollar now. I just hope you’re well-provided with said dollars, because these wireless surround sound headphones ain’t cheap.
