Razer has announced the Razer Leviathan V2 Pro which is a soundbar featuring head-tracking tech to beamform audio to the user. Razer states that the Leviathan V2 Pro is the world’s first PC Soundbar to feature an AI head-tracking solution that utilizes beamforming to deliver audio directly to the user.

“The Razer Leviathan V2 Pro represents the latest innovation in 3D audio, being the world’s first beamforming soundbar for desktop with head-tracking AI. In partnership with immersive audio pioneers, THX®, and leading 3D audio beamforming experts, Audioscenic, Razer’s new PC soundbar provides the best of both worlds, delivering a surround soundstage whilst ensuring users are always in the sweet spot for the optimal listening experience. All of this is packed into a compact, premium form factor with a simple setup, allowing for a clutter-free desktop.”

Specifications

The soundbar includes five full-range 2” drivers along with a 5.25″ downward-firing subwoofer and has a frequency response of 40 Hz – 20 kHz. Head-tracking is achieved via an IR camera mounted inside the top center of the soundbar. Other features include Razer’s Chroma RGB with 30 lighting zones, two 3D audio modes (THX Spatial Audio Virtual Headset and THX Spatial Audio Virtual Speakers), and the ability to control the soundbar’s audio (including volume slider, mute on/off, EQ, play/pause, previous and next track) and RGB (Chroma effects, on/off and brightness) settings via the Razer app on your phone.

“Powered by THX® Spatial Audio for the immersive experience, combined with Audioscenic user adaptive beamforming, the soundbar provides true-to-life 3D audio for all your entertainment needs. 3D audio can be experienced in two modes: THX® Spatial Audio Virtual Headset is for any stereo content, providing you with pinpoint positional audio previously only found in headsets, while THX® Spatial Audio Virtual Speakers is for any multi-channel content that provides a wide, room-filling soundstage that users would normally experience with a full home theatre system.”

“Along with the included subwoofer, the Leviathan V2 Pro multi-driver PC soundbar delivers crisp, clear treble and deep, punchy bass with support for Razer Chroma™ RGB, allowing for deeper immersion with 30 lighting zones, 16.8 million colors, and over 200 games integrated into the world’s largest lighting ecosystem for gaming devices.”

Connectivity options include Bluetooth 5.0, a 3.5mm headset jack, an optional subwoofer out port, and a USB Type-C port. Razer has said that the Leviathan V2 Pro is planned to launch this month for $399.99.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
