Razer Launch New Hammerhead USB-C Earbuds To Match The Razer Phone

 

Razer recently released Razer phone which doesn't have any headphone jack, but what it does have is Type-C port. Today, Razer is going into earbuds department with their Hammerhead earbuds with USB Type-C, aimed directly at buyers of the Razer Phone.




There are pre-existing versions of the Hammerhead buds that have a 3.5mm connector, but since the Razer Phone doesn’t have a dedicated headphone jack, these Hammerheads would make a good add-on. In fact, they’d probably make a good add-on for any Android device that doesn’t have a headphone jack, which is a lot of them these days.


According to the listing, these earbuds have a custom-tuned DAC for clean and unprocessed audio, in-line microphone and volume control, as well as flat cables for tangle-free storage.

As for raw specs, here's a look at what makes the Hammerhead USB-C tick:

  • Frequency response: 20 Hz – 20kHz 
  • Impedance: 32 ± 15% Ω 
  • Sensitivity: 102 ± 3 dB @ 1 kHz 
  • Max input power: 10 mW 
  • Drivers: 10 mm with Neodymium magnets 
  • Cable length: 1.3 m / 4.27 ft. 
  • Approximate weight: 0.06 lbs (28.0 g)


The Hammerheads are priced at $79.99 through Razer’s online store. They haven’t made their way to Amazon yet, but you can expect them to show up there, too, at some point.
