The all-new THX Certified Razer Opus
Razer has announced the arrival of their new THX Certified headphones, the Razer Opus. The Opus focuses on delivering music the way the artist intended – pure, crisp and clear, by combining unparalleled audio quality with advanced hybrid Active Noise Cancellation.
“Through close collaboration with the Opus design team, we were able to provide input throughout the development process,” said Peter Vasay, Head of THX Certification. “The result is a high-performance wireless headphone that delivers a rich, balanced soundstage, clear vocals, and deep impactful bass optimised for music, games, and movies.”
The Razer Opus features four dedicated ANC microphones that accurately filter out external ambient noise, allowing the user to experience the Razer Opus’ THX Certified audio quality. THX certification is not a tick-and-flick process; it requires a substanial amount of research and development into frequency range, response, with the goal of the product being able to produce clear, detailed vocals and impactful bass with absolutely zero distortion at high levels. The results speak for themselves — Crystal clear audio that is able to produce a broad, perfectly balanced soundscape and thus, THX Certification.
“Even with our many years of experience in creating headsets for one of the most demanding audiences in the world, the design of the Razer Opus required us to rethink every detail,” said Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Peripherals Business Unit. “With the Razer Opus headphones, we are able to deliver a listening experience that will satisfy even the most discerning audiophile, in any environment.”
The Razer Opus features Bluetooth and your traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, with 40mm dynamic drivers that produce a frequency response of 20Hz to 20,000Hz. Its impressive 25 hour battery life with ANC on ensure thats users will always have enough charge for ‘one last song’, no matter where you are. Its plush leatherette foam ear cushions and lighweight form factor (265grams) means that the Opus meets Razer’s high standards in regards to comfort.
The Razer Opus is available now from Razer Store and authorised online retails for $199.95 USD ($299.99 AUD).
