The popular gaming hardware maker Razer, has announced the launch of Opus X, a new set of over-ear wireless headphones that employ active noise cancellation at prices as low as $99! This new set of headphones possess only minor differences when compared to the pricier Opus, previously introduced by Razer. So if you opt for spending a little lesser money on wireless headphones, then this is the right choice for you.
The Opus X comes with huge 40mm drivers in a circumaural design and much larger ear pads. Razer describes it to be designed exclusively for gaming, music, and video conferencing. It highlights active noise cancellation and blocks out external noise, putting out a challenge to premium-priced headphones of the tech giants likes Sony, Bose, and Apple. It also encompasses a “Quick Attention” mode that regulates your in-headphone sound and lets you hear more of your surroundings.
It also facilitates a Bluetooth 5.0 connection to your phone or computer, through 60-millisecond low-latency communication links, and it DOES NOT support wired mode. They hold two microphones for in-game conversations, videoconferences, and calls. They hold rotating ear cups that enable you to rest them comfortably around your neck.
Opus X comes in three bold colors – Green, Quartz (Pink), and Mercury(White) when compared to the duller black or midnight blue colors of the standard Opus. However, a few features are slashed out in Opus X along with its price. The entire button layout is jammed up into the right ear cup, instead of splitting functionalities into both left and right cups. Also, there is no THX branding as it is not certified by the THX. The rated battery life of 30 hours is also lower in comparison to the 32-hour battery life of Opus. One great drawback is that it does not automatically pause and play your content when removed and wearing it back.
Opus X stands as the best option for a low-priced premium set of headphones and is available for sale from Monday at the official Razer website.
