Razer Announces Update to the Razer Hammerhead CNC Aluminum Chassis In-Ear Headset and Headphones

Razer's Popular In-Ear Audio Line Gets Major Upgrades of Extra-Large Drivers, In-Line Controls and Passive Noise Reduction, Delivering Unrivaled Versatility, Quality and Performance for Gaming and Music Enjoyment

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - April 05, 2016) - Razer™, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the release of the new Razer Hammerhead Pro V2 headset and Razer Hammerhead V2 in-ear headphones.

The new Razer Hammerhead Pro V2 and Razer Hammerhead V2 both have an enhanced chassis that is CNC milled out of aircraft-grade aluminum, and flat-style cables that are ideal for mobile gaming and music use. Engineered for improved acoustic clarity and more powerful bass for which the Razer Hammerhead series is known, the in-ear headset and headphone are equipped with extra-large 10 mm dynamic drivers -- a 20 percent increase from their forerunners.

The Razer Hammerhead Pro V2 comes with three quick-action control buttons on the in-line microphone, which is fully-compatible with both iOS and Android devices. Three ear tip sizes and an optional bi-flange attachment provide superior sound isolation, as well as customizable comfort for increased versatility. An included splitter cable allows it to be connected to devices with dedicated audio and microphone jacks.

Alternately, the Razer Hammerhead V2 was developed for users who want a streamlined mobile audio solution, possessing all the features of the Pro V2, minus the in-line mic and controls.

"The demanding requirements of on-the-go gaming inspired us to make the original Razer Hammerhead with uncompromised sound quality in a form factor that was comfortable and could take a beating," says Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. "This next evolution of the Hammerheads offers more power, sound quality, durability and portability than ever before."
