STATES - Media OutReach - 13 July 2021 - Razer™, the leading global lifestyle
brand for gamers (Hong Kong Stock Code: 1337), is proud to introduce the new
Barracuda X Wireless Multi-platform Gaming and Mobile Headset. Designed for
gaming on multiple devices at home or outdoors, it offers true versatility and
freedom backed by long-lasting comfort, powerful drivers, and a crystal-clear
mic. The Barracuda X is an all-purpose, 4-in-1 wireless gaming headset
compatible with PC, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and Android devices.
Many modern wireless headsets are designed for
use either at home or on-the-go, and switching between devices can be a
time-consuming process, with unpairing and pairing over Bluetooth often leading
to connection issues. The Barracuda X is conceptualized for ease of use and
incredible versatility – its reliable ultra-low latency wireless connection
combined with a sleek ergonomic design, powerful Razer TriForce drivers and a
Razer HyperClear Cardioid microphone makes the headset the perfect all-in-one-solution
for multi-platform gaming.
"Many of the headsets out there that are marketed
for multi-platform use can only achieve this using a wired connection," says
Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer's Peripherals Business Unit. "The
Razer Barracuda X combines high-performance gaming features and true 4-in-1
wireless connectivity with the design and ease of use of lifestyle headphones.
The result is a single, multi-purpose headset, ideal for all-day-long gaming no
matter which platform you are using or where you are."
One design to
rule them all
The Barracuda X was developed from the ground-up
as a versatile, multi-platform headset with a strong focus on style and
comfort. Leveraging many years of engineering expertise, Razer has integrated
their proprietary industry-leading audio technologies in a comfortable wireless
gaming headset equally suited for indoor and outdoor
The Barracuda X has undergone an extensive design
process, dictated by fit, comfort, and simplicity, resulting in a concave
surface design for reduced bulk, clean lines, and a harmonious blend between
yoke and ear cup, for a sleek, stylish look. The low-profile ear cups are
angled to fit every ear shape and can be adjusted and swiveled for a
personalized fit. With plush memory foam ear cushions, and a thick, soft,
lightweight headband for a pressure-free fit, the Barracuda X weighs just 250g,
delivering all-day comfort.
The Barracuda X comes fully equipped with all
necessary accessories for the ultimate out-of-the-box multi-device experience.
At the heart of the multi-platform capability of this gaming headset is the
Razer HyperSpeed Wireless USB-C Dongle. It enables the Barracuda X to seamlessly connect to a PC, PlayStation,
Nintendo Switch or Android devices as a plug-and-play device, eliminating the
need for Bluetooth pairing and software/driver downloads.
For situations where a USB-C connection isn't
available, the Barracuda X is supplied with a USB-C to USB-A adapter cable,
ideal for PC or docked Nintendo Switch use. For further compatibility, a
4-pole, 3.5mm jack is also available when an analog connection is needed. The
Barracuda X also comes with a USB-C to USB-A charging cable - a full charge
lets the headset run for up to 20 hours of continuous use.
The Barracuda X features the latest in Razer's
audio technology. Using the Razer TriForce 40mm Drivers, the Barracuda X
provides high-end audio performance for bright and clear audio, with
individually tuned high, mid and low range frequencies for clearer trebles, a
rich midrange and powerful bass, promising an immersive audio experience.
Featuring a detachable Razer HyperClear Cardioid
Mic, the Razer Barracuda X supplies ultra-clear voice comms, regardless of the
platform you're gaming on. The microphone on the Barracuda X offers
improved voice isolation excluding more ambient noise from the back and sides,
increased sensitivity for greater low frequency response, and an optimized
housing for added clarity and accurate voice pick-up.
The Barracuda X wireless gaming headset is the
one headset to play them all, with versatility, a lightweight design and simple
plug-and-play wireless connection for seamless 4-in-1 use across PC,
PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and Android devices.
