Razer Announces D.Va Themed Headset and Mouse

Razer, the now major phone smartphone brand, has announced a headset and computer mouse in the style of D.Va from Overwatch at Blizzcon 2017. Now, don’t sit here and tell me you don’t play Overwatch, everyone plays this game, it’s the digital equivalent of heroin.

The headset, modeled after the one the mech pilot Hana Song wears, has a range of 20 Hz – 20 kHz, 40 mm drivers, Neodymium magnets and weighs a total of 322g. Remember, D.Va was a professional gamer in South Korea before signing up to fight for her country. Yea, this game really is for nerds.

The mouse is rated as being “tournament-grade”, and I’m sure it’s great, but let’s be real here, the headset is the real star of the show.

The headset will retail for $79, and will be available soon. Oh, and the mouse is available now for $59.

I want that headset, It’ll complete my D.Va cosplay. Now, I won’t cosplay outside, but I will wear it around the house and stare at myself in the mirror.

Razer Phone Announced With High End Screen And Speakers That Are Geared For Gamers

Photo by Vlad Savov / The Verge

Razer has officially announced their first phone simply titled the Razer Phone. The device comes just one year after Razer’s acquisition of Nextbit, which had previously stepped into the smartphone market with the Robin.

The Razer Phone is made with sharp corners and a metal finish, a design that Razer seems comfortable with on their laptops. The features include a 2K LCD display that runs at 120hz. No other smartphone has a display that fast, which provides buttery smooth animations, scrolling and will even make some games look super smooth. The phone also features stereo front-facing speakers with dedicated amplifiers and a THX-certified adapter that ensures high quality audio through the headphones.

Aside from its display and audio, The Razer Phone also features 6GB of RAM, the latest Snapdragon 835 processor and a dual 12MP rear shooter, much like the iPhone 8 Plus. The software is a fairly stock android experience, but Razer hopes that its high quality display and audio features can be enough to lure gamers to give it a shot.

Razer Made A Webcam With A Ring Light For Streamers

Razer knows there’s big potential in catering to streamers. Those with the largest audiences list their gaming setup and many of their fans will go out and buy the same gear as their favorite streamers. And while Razer already has some of the best peripherals, like gaming mice and mechanical keyboards, they’ve fallen short on other products such as quality microphones.

Now, they’ve hoping to change that with two new products, the Siren X, a zero-latency USB microphone built to dampen vibrations, and the Kiyo, a 1080p webcam with a ring of 12 LED’s for much better selfie lighting. The brightness of the lights can even be changed between 12 different levels.

I just love ring lights, they add so much to an image with so little effort, and the Kiyo could be a great camera for streamers who travel, because they’ll always have that great lighting. Both the Kyio and Siren X are $99 and are available now through Razer.

I guess the Kyio could also be used for porn streamers, just saying.

Razer May Unveil A Smartphone on November 1st

Razer, the company behind some of gaming’s best peripherals, has released a teaser image for their upcoming event on November 1st. In the image you can see a person (probably a gamer) holding a small phone sized device.

There’s almost no real information on what a Razer smartphone might do or look like, but given the event’s mantra of ‘Watch, Listen, Play’ Razer’s phone could focus around display and sound quality.

Now, while this device will probably end up being a phone, it could also end up being a sort of portable gaming unit like what we’ve seen with the Nvidia Shield. Razer’s never made a purely gaming unit like that, but seeing as the Shield wasn’t much of a success, I’d certainly lean more towards the device being a Android smartphone.

Would you ever buy (or want) a Razer Smartphone? Even hardcore gamers would need some killer gaming features to have this compete with Android phones like the Note 8 or Pixel 2.

CES 2014: Razer Nabu Smartwatch is Also a Fitness Tracker

Nabu Smart Fitness Band

 

There seems to be a huge influx of wearable tech on CES this year. The latest of these is Razer’s Nabu, which is a smartwatch-slash-fitness band that gives you the best of both worlds. As Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan explains, the Nabu is a “cross between a smartwatch and a fitness band,” adding that its “a wearable device focused on helping [people] live smarter.”

The Nabu comes with two displays: one which displays a watch face, and another which displays notifications from your smartphone, such as calls or messages. The latter display also shows fitness stats and wellness-related data, such as the number of steps walked and distance traveled.

Razer’s Nabu is currently available to developers for only $49. No word yet on the official release of the device for consumers.

Razer’s Tiamat Headset Packs 10 Drivers

By David Ponce

We’ve talked about Razer a bunch of times over the years. They make gaming accessories that are generally well received. Now they’re coming out with an alleged “world’s first” 10-driver circumaural 7.1 gaming headset (5 drivers per ear). They’re not going the usual route of virtual surround but rather true surround with precise control over each audio channel. There’s a separate controller through which you can customize levels to your liking and a precise, unidirectional noise-cancelling microphone.

Of course when it comes to audio equipment the proof is in the pudding and the Tiamat won’t hit shelves until Q4 of this year for $180. At that price, it better be some really good pudding.
