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

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.

Project Christine Is The PC Gamer’s Dream Concept


The console vs. PC gaming war rages on, and Razer may have recently dealt a pretty serious blow to the console folk. Project Christine from Razer is an eye grabbing concept for a liquid cooled PC that features a bunch of swappable modules. Each component of this gaming rig (RAM, hard drives, graphics card, etc.) can be replaced by another, making the PC easily upgradeable and configurable. Every module features an input and output connection for the mineral oil liquid cooling solution, which not only will help keep the temperatures down but also significantly lower the noise levels. The pump for the oil is housed in the main unit, along with the heat exchangers that do the actual cooling.

The idea behind the project is to remove some of the complexity involved in building your own PC, while at the same time mating an attractive design to a powerful and convenient gaming solution. Project Christine is only a prototype at the moment and there is no firm release date or projected price. But don’t expect anything until at least 2015.

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.

Razer Naga Features A Dozen Extra Keys


By Chris Scott Barr

I’ve been a PC gamer for a long time, and while I find that having a few extra buttons on my mouse can be very helpful, more is not always better. After using a wide variety of gaming mice, I’ve discovered that 3-4 extra buttons is about perfect. Any more and it seems like you have to put extra effort into not accidentally hitting them, which makes it less comfortable to use. So needless to say, I’m not exactly getting excited about Razer’s latest mouse, dubbed the Naga.

The Razer Naga features a whopping 12-key grid on the side where your thumb should rest. This means that your thumb will almost always be pressing against these. I’m going to guess that they take a good little bit of pressure to register, but I’m still not comfortable resting my fingers on that many buttons. I also wonder how easy it will be to hit each of them as quickly as you need to. I suppose it’s one of those things that will just have to be tried out to really understand. If you need a dozen extra keys on your mouse, then the Naga will set you back about $80.

Razer Announces Megalodon Gaming Headphones

I am an avid PC gamer and when I play, I always use headphones. I use headphones because they don’t disturb the people in my home and it helps block out the noise in the environment that disturbs my play. Typically, when I play I use a set of Razer Barracuda headphones that provide very good surround sound audio quality.

Razer has introduced what may be my next set of headphones called the Megalodon 7.1 surround sound gaming headset. The headset uses Razer’s new Maelstrom Audio Engine to process positional audio cues 800% faster than comparable virtual surround sound systems according to Razer.
