If you prefer in-ear headphones (AKA earphones) over headphones while gaming on mobile or Nintendo Switch, then you may want to check out the new Razer Hammerhead Duo. As the product name hints, this latest iteration of Hammerhead has a double custom-tuned drivers on each earbuds that work in harmony to delivery perfectly balanced sound.
It has a Dynamic Driver for deep bass and a Balanced Armature Driver to deliver “bright, high-frequency details.” Razer said its Dual Driver technology allows for “more effective sound separation” and therefore “produce clearer and louder audio” less the distortion. The Razer Hammerhead Duo inherits the aluminum frame and braided cables from its predecessor, and comes bundled with three silicone tip sizes for comfortable and secure fit.
It will work across multiple platforms, including smartphones, PC, Mac, console, and more, as long as the device accepts 3.5 mm audio jack. There are actually two versions of the Razer Hammerhead Duo. One with an inline control with volume and play/pause control and a built-in microphone and one that’s compatible with Nintendo Switch.
Unique to the Nintendo Switch version are an inline microphone with mute switch to allow for convenient communication across games and calls. The Nintendo Switch variant further features a silver Razer logo on each earbud, and a carry case for storage.
Both the standard Razer Hammerhead Duo and the Nintendo Switch model sells for $59.99. While the former is available now, the latter will only available starting June 1st.
