Razer’s new Barracuda headsets work with any phone or PC

Last year’s Razer Barracuda X headset was fine if you wanted low-latency wireless audio for your console or Android phone, but it wasn’t very handy for much else. But this time it won’t be a problem. The enterprise has introduced the new Barracuda, Barracuda X and Barracuda Pro headsets, which (among other upgrades) add Bluetooth with Smart Device Switching. You can use them with iPhones and just about any other device, and you don’t have to switch connections manually if a phone call interrupts your gaming session.

You can also expect almost double the battery life, with up to 50 hours for the Barracuda X and 40 hours for the other two models. You still have Razer’s proprietary 2.4GHz wireless connection if lag is an issue.

The differences are mainly due to the audio quality. The Barracuda Pro (pictured above) tops the line with 50mm “TriForce Bio-Cellulose” drivers, a THX achromatic audio amplifier, THX Spatial Audio and hybrid active noise cancellation. The regular Barracuda opts for “plain” titanium 50mm drivers, while shedding the amp and ANC. The revamped Barracuda X (below), on the other hand, is now more of a traditional gaming headset. While it sticks to more modest 40mm drivers and lacks THX capabilities, you do get a detachable cardioid mic, a wired 3.5mm option and 7.1-channel surround audio.

All three headsets are available now. The Barracuda X starts at $100, while the standard Barracuda and Pro are $160 and $250, respectively. So Razer is clearly flipping the line – that’s fewer gaming accessories and more competition for traditional mid-range and budget headphones.
