Razer has announced the release of its new PC wireless gaming headset, the Razer ManO’War, which offers high-fidelity, gaming-grade audio that features multiple wireless antennas, frequency channel scanning, and an advanced coding algorithm that is said to ensure a high-performance, lag-free 2.4GHz wireless experience.
The Razer ManO’War uses an ultra-compact wireless USB adapter that allows it to work from up to 39 feet, while those who need an even wider range can opt to use its additional extension dock for support of up to 46 feet. The headset supports 7.1 channel virtual surround sound supported by Razer’s Surround software engine. Its closed-style leatherette cushions helps enhance noise isolation as well as promises to keep the wearer comfortable for long gaming sessions.
Other features include 14 hours of battery life when Chroma lighting is active, or 20 hours without Chroma lighting, 16.8 million color support, volume and mic controls on the ear cups, and a mute LED indicator that helps the wearer know if they’re muted or not.
“The Razer ManO’War combines the perfect balance of wireless performance, comfort and durability in a gaming-grade headset,” says Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “The freedom to play without wires, uninterrupted, with the comfort, sound quality and incredible battery life of this headset is more than exciting for gamers—it’s critical.”
The Razer ManO’War will be available for sale on April 17 in limited quantities at BestBuy and Razerstore.com in the US, with a Worldwide release planned for May 2016. The ManO’War retails for $169.99.
