Razer has always been known as a company that makes top-notch gaming gear. The company has always reinvented itself by adding new products to its portfolio, the recent being a device focused on audio aficionados. The new Hammerhead True Wireless X is a pair of truly wireless earbuds that come packed with 13mm custom-tuned drivers to offer good sound quality.
The earbuds and the charging case come neatly packed in a box that also includes a USB-C cable for charging the devices and a pair of ear tips for the earbuds. On each of the earbuds, you will find embedded LED lights, which light up Razer’s signature three-headed snake logo. They look really cool in a dimly lit or dark environment. The build quality of the charging case and the earbuds is quite good.
On the charging case, you will find an LED indicator and the USB-C port. The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X is a more affordable offering from the brand, coming in at a price point of £69.99, which translates roughly to AED 356. However, this price point is quite on the lower end, when compared with the Hammerhead True Wireless Pro and Hammerhead True Wireless headphones.
One of the reasons the pricing is lower is because these earbuds do not offer active noise cancellation feature. The earbuds themselves are quite comfortable to wear and they fit snuggly in the ears. They stayed in place even during some headbanging sessions. In addition, the earbuds are water-resistant – so those who sweat a lot, do not need to worry.
The earbuds get connected to devices through the Bluetooth 5.2 standard. Now, you may wonder why would somebody use the Hammerhead True Wireless X earbuds during gaming sessions, due to latency issues. Well, Razer thought about that, too. Hence these earbuds come packed with Game Mode that lowers the latency to just 60ms.
In terms of performance, the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X hits it straight out of the park. The Hammerheads are actually one of the best sounding wireless earbuds I’ve ever used in recent memory. The custom-tuned 13mm drivers deliver a hell of a punch with impressive clarity and sound stage. The Razer Audio app also comes with an equaliser that lets you personalise your hearing experience. With the Razer Audio app, you can also customise your lighting, remap any of the hands-free commands, and toggle on or off Smart Link for Android devices and Gaming Mode.
When it comes to battery life, the earbuds offer around 6 hours of battery life on a single charge. The charging case offers around 17 hours more, which brings the battery life to a total of 23 hours. This is not bad at all considering the audio quality it offers. The only shortcomings of the earbuds would be the exclusion of the Active Noise Cancellation feature.
However, the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X earbuds offer outstanding audio quality, great battery life, and Game Mode for low latency during gaming. This makes the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X, a true value for money pair of wireless earbuds.
