Odds are, if you’re a video game fan, Razer is a brand on your radar. Whether it’s Laptops or mice, they’re a leader in gaming peripherals. Today, Razer looks to expand that lineup by announcing the Razer Hammerhead BT and the Razer Hammerhead for iOS Lightning.

The Hammerhead BT features Qualcomm aptX codec allowing low latency, but high-quality audio, featuring up to eight hours of battery life with a charge time of up to two hours. Packed into the Hammerhead BT is an in-line remote and microphone that works with both iOS and Android devices.

The Razer Hammerhead for iOS utilizes the Lightning Connector capabilities to deliver a digital audio through a custom-tunes, digital-to-analogue converter. In line controls allow for users to use Siri on top of taking calls or skipping music tracks. The Razer Hammerhead for iOS is larger than most earbuds in its class, but that space is used for an aluminium acoustic chamber that adds durability while increasing audio quality.
