Razer is well known for a wide range of gaming headsets, you’ll probably expect the last thing to have as a gaming headset is the Hammerhead Pros. These look like traditional in-ear headphones that you’d get with your mobile phone and these are exactly what they are meant for. Gaming on the go or listening to music is something you’ll be able to do with the Hammerheads for your Pixel 2, OnePlus 5 or other USB Type-C device.
At £79.99 it certainly looks like a product Razer but in the style of some of your usual in-ear headphones with an in-line microphone, flat cable design with a flare of fluorescent green wrapping. There’s a textured ring around the body of the earpiece which makes it easier to hold and gives it a nice look. Further down the line is the microphone and volume control which is contained in a plastic casing. Continuing down, you’ll find a small black ring that allows you to change the cable tightness so it fits better on the chin.
Compared to the first generation of Hammerhead headphones the V2 personally looks a lot sleeker. Along with this, each earpiece is made of metal and a smart design choice of having them magnetized so that the cables don’t get too uncontrollable. This combined with the flat cable makes it seem like it would be much harder to get tangled up in your bag, more so when it’s inside the included hard carry case.
