RAZER EXPANDS THE RAZER HAMMERHEAD V2 IN-EAR AUDIO LINE WITH BLUETOOTH AND IOS LIGHTNING MODELS

For Release on April 18, 2017:

HAMBURG, Germany - Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today, unveiled two new headsets:  the Razer Hammerhead BT and the Razer Hammerhead for iOS Lightning.

Razer Hammerhead BT:

Engineered to deliver clear and cordless audio, the new Razer Hammerhead BT is a Bluetooth 4.1 in-ear headset that features the Qualcomm aptX® codec for low-latency, high-quality audio. Mobile users may enjoy uninterrupted listening and calls with a battery life of up to eight hours per charge.

The Razer Hammerhead BT comes with an in-line remote and microphone that is compatible with iOS or Android devices, providing easy call pick-up or music track navigation.

Razer Hammerhead for iOS:

Making full use of the Lightning Connector capabilities, the Razer Hammerhead for iOS delivers clean digital audio through a custom-tuned, digital-to-analog converter (DAC). Through the Razer Hammerhead iOS companion app, users can personalize listening experiences with customizable or pre-configured equalizer settings.

The Razer Hammerhead for iOS comes with an in-line control and mic that allows users to exploit Siri, as well as take calls or skip music tracks.

Both Razer Hammerhead models are outfitted with custom-tuned 10 mm dynamic audio drivers, which are larger than most earbuds in their class. An aluminum acoustic chamber enhances music reproduction while adding to durability. Each Razer Hammerhead comes with a carrying case that includes additional ear tip sizes to ensure fit and sound isolation.

“The Razer Hammerhead line of in-ear headphones and headsets are lauded for their big sound in a highly portable form factor,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “We are excited to expand our Hammerhead audio experience with a Bluetooth wireless option for increased mobility and a Lightning Connector version for iOS device users.”

The Razer Hammerhead BT and Razer Hammerhead for iOS are available on RazerStore.com and with other retailers. For more information, visit http://rzr.to/hammerheadbt & http://rzr.to/hammerheadios
