Razer Opus THX ANC Headphones Released

Razer has announced its Opus THX Certified active noise-cancelling headphones.

Perhaps more familiar to gamers than audiophiles, Razer is a brand better known for its predominantly PC peripherals. However, today it has unleashed the Razer Opus (€209.99) wireless headphones.

Boasting THX Certified audio and advanced hybrid active noise cancellation, the Razer Opus sports a pair of 40mm dynamic drivers resulting in a claimed frequency response of 20 Hz – 20 kHz. However, coming from a decidedly tech-oriented arena, that's not all.

As well as playing nice with AC and APTX, 4.2, A2DP, AVRCP, HFP codecs, the Razer Opus uses an advanced hybrid active noise cancelling (ANC) system to cancel out external noise. Utilising four dedicated microphones, these are designed to accurately tune out a broad range of external frequencies. Additionally, these Bluetooth 4.2 headphones have apparently undergone hundreds of tests to win its THX certification. We are told that to achieve the stringent requirements for THX certification, fine details such as a frequency range and response must be capable of delivering clear, detailed vocals and deep, impactful bass with zero distortion at high volumes.

Peter Vasay, Head of THX Certification, told StereoNET:

Through close collaboration with the Opus design team, we were able to provide input throughout the development process. The result is a high-performance wireless headphone that delivers a rich, balanced soundstage, clear vocals, and deep, impactful bass optimised for music, games, and movies.

The Razer Opus weighs just 265g and, thanks to the leatherette foam ear cushions and headband, Razer promises a comfortable, pressure-point free fit for long periods of use.

Each battery charge lasts up to 25 hours with ANC on. Also, when you need to hear what's happening, just use the Quick Attention Mode. Finally, there is an optional 3.5mm analogue input for maximum device compatibility.

The Razer Opus are available now for €209.99.
