Razer’s new range of top-shelf gaming headsets

02 Oct 2018

Razer is releasing a new range of wireless gaming headsets, the Nari Ultimate range, with Razer HyperSense, an advanced haptic technology.

Razer HyperSense was developed together with Lofelt, a German engineering firm that specialises in creating haptic technologies for immersive, natural, lifelike experiences.

“Lofelt is committed to raising the standard for haptic feedback to match the high-quality audio and video we’re used to in today’s devices,” says Lofelt CEO Daniel Büttner.

“Teaming up with Razer is an incredible opportunity for us to demonstrate the value of the cutting-edge technology we developed. I’m thrilled we are at the forefront of realising the true potential of advanced haptics and can’t wait for gamers to level up their gameplay with the Razer Nari Ultimate featuring Lofelt’s haptic technology.”

Razer HyperSense utilises haptic drivers that generate multidimensional haptic feedback, enhancing positional awareness with stereo capabilities.

The technology works across all formats of gaming, music and movies without specific integration by converting audio signals into tactile feedback in real time.

The Nari Ultimate was also engineered with comfort technology that includes an auto-adjusting headband, swivelling ear cups to fit every head shape, and cooling gel ear cushions.

The cooling gel ear cushions feature hidden indented eye-wear channels for a more comfortable fit with eye-wear.

The Razer Nari Ultimate also utilises THX Spatial Audio which was introduced with the Kraken Tournament Edition.

This feature creates realistic depth and immersion by simulating 360-degree sound with pinpoint accuracy for greater awareness during gameplay.

The headset has game/chat balance, and it works in both wired and wireless mode for added compatibility across PC, Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.

“Razer consistently creates products with innovative technology to give gamers the best gaming experience possible,” says Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan.

“With the Razer Nari Ultimate, we are championing a whole new way for gamers to feel their games through Razer HyperSense.”

The Razer Nari is available in three versions: Razer Nari Ultimate, Nari, and Nari Essential.

The Razer Nari Ultimate described above delivers the most gaming audio value for gamers at NZ$379.95 (AU$349.95).

The Razer Nari at NZ$279.95 (AU$249.95) omits Razer HyperSense while mirroring the Razer Nari Ultimate in comfort, sound technology and all other features.

The Razer Nari Essential focuses on core wireless gaming headset features with THX Spatial Audio, comfort with an auto-adjusting headband, and cooling gel ear cushions and lag-free performance at NZ$189.95 (AU$169.95).
