Razer Announces the Hammerhead Duo Earbuds for Mobile Gaming

This week, Razer unveiled their brand new Hammerhead Duo in-ear headset featuring dual driver technology focused more on mobile gaming. The dual driver tech is in reference to the two audio drivers within the headset that are working together to bring a much more vibrant sound than your standard earbuds would. The company has made two versions of the headset, one for regular mobile use with phones and tablets which features an inline control with volume and play/pause control and a microphone. The other version, however, is a Nintendo Switch version that has an inline microphone with a mute switch that allows for communication across games and calls if you use it for your mobile device as well. We have some of the stats below for those curious of the specs. The regular version for mobile devices is available now on Razer’s website for $60, while the Nintendo Switch version will be available in early June for the same price.
