Back in 2019, Singaporean-American multinational technology firm Razer debuted the “Hammerhead,” an ultra-low-latency true wireless earbud model made specifically for gamers. With the original model now several years old — and looking increasingly long in the tooth — Razer has opted to give its Hammerhead gaming earbuds a major update for 2021.
The 2021 Hammerhead model features a slew of updates and upgrades that collectively make for a markedly better and more high-performance pair of earbuds. While maintaining the original models IPX4-rating and lightning-fast 60-millisecond latency, the new version’s Bluetooth connectivity has been upgraded to 5.2, Google Fast Pairing has been added, and battery life has more than doubled from a collective 16 hours up to 32.5, with the earbuds themselves containing a 6.5-hour charge and the USB-C-rechargeable wireless charging case affording an additional 26 hours of playback time. Backed by a two-year warranty, the 2021-spec also now sports an in-ear configuration, rather than the 2019 model’s half-in-ear setup. The 2021 Hammerhead earbuds also benefit from a number of premium features that have trickled down from Razer’s more expensive $200 Pro-spec Hammerhead model, including active noise cancelation, and connectivity to Razer’s mobile app which includes a customizable EQ and Razer Chroma RGB lighting. Available now, the 2021 Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds have been priced at $130.
