The Man O’ War is the latest headset from Razer, aiming to provide completely lag-free wireless audio using the company’s own gaming grade lag-free 2.4 GHz wireless technology. The headset promises precise audio reproduction thanks the high-performance 50mm Neodymium magnet drivers as well as 7.1 virtual surround sound.
The headset maintains Razer’s classic flair for design and features RGB logos on the ear cups, much like the new series of Kraken headsets. There is also a retractable microphone included so you can tuck it away when you aren’t in a call or playing games.
Being a wireless headset, battery life will be a big concern but Razer promises 20 hours of use with the RGB lights turned off and 14 hours with them switched on.

- Frequency response: 20 – 20 kHz
- Impedance: 32 Ω ¬ at 1 kHz

- Pick-up pattern: Unidirectional
The Man O’War beings shipping on the 29th of April and costs £154.99 here in the UK, so it sits at the higher end for gaming headsets.
KitGuru Says: I haven’t had much experience with Razer headsets myself but it would be interesting to see what the wireless performance is like. Are any of you currently looking to get a new gaming headset? How much are you willing to spend on one?
