Razer has announced three new Barracuda headsets in the form of the Barracuda, Barracuda Pro, and Barracuda X. All of these new models support Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity in addition to Razer HyperSpeed Wireless (2.4 GHz), allowing them to work with virtually any phone or PC, as well as Razer SmartSwitch for connecting to and switching between two devices seamlessly. Users will also find nearly twice the battery life, with up to 50 hours for the Barracuda X and up to 40 hours for the Pro and standard models. Razer’s Barracuda Pro with THX Achromatic Audio Amplifier and Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation Technology (ANC) is available beginning today from Razer.com and authorized retailers for $249.99, while the Barracuda and Barracuda X can also be purchased for $159.99 and $99.99, respectively.

“The Barracuda Pro is the hybrid headset that does it all,” said Chris Mitchell, Head of the PC Gaming Division at Razer. “Whether it’s your main gaming setup at home or your favorite music playlists on the go, the Barracuda Pro combines the fuss-free convenience of lifestyle headphones along with the high-performance gaming features you’d expect in a Razer gaming headset, to create a no-compromise experience, packaged in a sleek, premium design.”

Whether calling shots in-game or checking in with family and friends on the phone, the Barracuda Pro gives crystal clear voice communication thanks to its dual integrated beamforming noise-cancelling microphones, that have been fine-tuned for peak vocal pick-up. This is further supported by three levels of active noise-suppression, selectable through the companion Razer Audio App.

The new Razer TriForce Bio-Cellulose 50mm drivers featured in the Barracuda Pro deliver a rich, natural and detailed soundscape. For pure, undiluted sound, the headset features its own built-in amplifier, the world-class THX Achromatic Audio Amplifier (THX AAATM), to ensure ultra-low distortion, improved signal-to-noise ratio, a greater dynamic range, better power output, and more detail and clarity for music lovers.
