RAZER HAMMERHEAD DUO BRINGS DUAL DRIVER TECHNOLOGY TO EVERYDAY MOBILE ENTERTAINMENT
The new Hammerhead Duo line features two separate drivers per earpiece for full-range sound and a more immersive entertainment experience on the go.
SINGAPORE – Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the Razer Hammerhead Duo, a dual driver in-ear headset delivering clear and powerful audio for all forms of mobile entertainment like music, movies, and games.
The Razer Hammerhead Duo takes its name from the custom-tuned dual drivers housed in each earpiece. Dual Driver technology functions by having two audio drivers work in harmony to deliver perfectly balanced sound – with deep bass from the Dynamic Driver and bright, high-frequency details from the Balanced Armature Driver.
Compared to single driver headphones, dual drivers allow for more effective sound separation and produce clearer and louder audio that is free from distortion – resulting in a crisper, more precise audio experience whether you are catching up on your favourite TV series or music playlist on the go.
To make it suitable for daily commute and travel, the Razer Hammerhead Duo was also designed to be slim and light-weight, while maintaining an aluminium frame and braided cables to make it comfortable, durable and fuss-free. It also comes with three silicon tip sizes for a comfortable and secure fit that effectively reduces unwanted outside noise. Its analog 3.5mm jack allows the Razer Hammerhead Duo to work cross-platform, with smartphones, PC, Mac, console, and more.
“The Hammerhead Duo primes dual driver technology to become a standard for mobile audio users,” said Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “It delivers a clear and precise audio experience in a comfortable form factor that perfectly meets the demands of daily use no matter where you are.”
The Razer Hammerhead Duo comes in two versions: The Razer Hammerhead Duo, which features an inline control with volume and play/pause control plus microphone, and the Razer Hammerhead Duo – Compatible with the Nintendo Switch™. Built specifically with Nintendo Switch users in mind, this variant sports an inline microphone with mute switch that allows for convenient communication across games and calls, a silver Razer logo on each earpiece, and a carry case for easy storage – keeping the in-ears organized to avoid cluttering bags and pockets in-between gaming sessions.
