Before PAX West officially kicked off this year, we got a sneak peek at a couple new products from Razer on the way this year. All three of these are a part of the accessories lineup and will be available in stores this September, as we get an upgrade to a mouse, a keyboard, and a headset.
Starting with the keyboard, say hello to the Razer Blackwidow Elite. This one has been given a complete upgrade in every department from lighting to memory to durability. Aside from the hyper on-board memory and cloud service, and the attached wrist rest, this version comed with dedicated media keys int he upper right corner as requested by pro players.
The headset is the Razer Kraken Tournament Edition. This is basically an improvement on last year’s model as you’re getting some additional features to make the model operate the way an esports pro would like it to. Along with voice chat balancing so you can adjust what you hear, what other’s hear, and how much of it comes up over the game, you have an audio controller that operates separately from the headset to give you more freedom and control over the audio on a moment’s notice. We got to test it out with THX audio and it sounded splendid.
Finally, we have the new and improved Mamba Wireless, which is one of the lightest mouse units we’ve ever seen at a convention. The mouse has an extended battery life that will let you game for over 24 hours without a charge, an optical sensor with 16,000 DPI, on-board memory and cloud storage for your settings, and a boosted durability. This is basically meant to be the all-in-one gaming mouse for those who prefer to go wireless. You can check out all of these at PAX West this weekend.
