Razer Barracuda X offers 4-in-1 wireless audio and wide-ranging device compatibility

Today, Razer is announcing its latest gaming headset, targeting multi-platform gamers who like to bring their headset across PC, console and mobile. The Razer Barracuda X is a 4-in-1 wireless headset with TriForce drivers, Discord-certification and low-latency wireless audio. 

The Razer Barracuda X was developed from the ground-up to be versatile. This is shown through the various audio technologies in use, including Razer’s HyperClear microphone, Discord-certification, ultra-low latency wireless via a HyperSpeed USB-C dongle, surround sound (PC only) and compatibility across PC, Android devices, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation. The headset can also be used in wired mode with a USB-C cable or 3.5mm headphone jack, making them compatible with pretty much any device.

Under the ear cups, you will find Razer’s 40mm ‘TriForce’ drivers for audio. The ear cups have a low-profile design and are angled to fit every ear shape. They can be adjusted and swivelled for a more personalised fit. The ear cushions use a thick memory foam to keep pressure from forming on your head too. All of this, combined with the 250g weight, ensures comfort during long gaming sessions.

Thanks to the USB-C HyperSpeed dongle, the headset can be paired to a PC, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch or Android device without any need for pairing and creating a plug-and-play experience. When used in wireless mode, the Barracuda X can last up to 20 hours of continuous use.
