Based on last year’s Razer Barracuda X Wireless headset, the company has released new models focused on wireless connection and use with various devices for relevant tasks. Now the line consists of three headsets.
The new Barracuda and Barracuda Pro models can be connected via Bluetooth and 2.4 GHz, which allows you to use headsets with a mobile phone to listen to music and then switch to a computer for gaming sessions. This hybrid usage scheme even involves “smart” switching between channels. For example, during a game, you can answer a call and then return to the game without removing the headphones. Of course, the Do Not Disturb mode is also provided so that the call does not interfere with an inappropriate moment in the game. Barracuda, like Barracuda X, can also be connected with a standard cable with a 3.5 mm connector, and for radio contact, it has a USB-C receiver.
Both are equipped with larger 50mm drivers (Razer TriForce Titanium in Barracuda and Razer TriForce Bio-Cellulose in Barracuda Pro), support for proprietary THX Spatial Audio technology, and have built-in microphones. The “older” model has active noise cancellation with a separate Ambient Mode. You can control the settings through the mobile application, and individual modes and sound source can be selected with the buttons on the headset.
The battery life of new models is designed for 40 hours without charging. This is 10 hours less than last year’s Barracuda X but is still enough to meet the needs of gamers.
