The new wireless headset brings Dolby 7.1 surround sound to the console, giving players some of the most immersive wireless audio currently on the market. The 50 mm driver will deliver directional audio, and the leatherette ear cups, with memory foam, ensure there is limited audio leakage when playing your favourite games.
The Razer Thresher Ultimate come with a retractable unidirectional mic boom design microphone that will ensure your voice is crystal clear when communicating with teammates in online games. The on-headset controls give you easy access to levels along with game/ chat balance on the PlayStation 4, and master volume on Xbox One.

The Razer Thresher Ultimate is slated to give a range of around 40 feet, meaning you can listen to your music, game or keep in a chat as you step away from the console.
Continuing the iconic Razer look, the Razer, Headset, Razer Thresher Ultimate have a similar design aesthetic as the Man’OWar. The Razer Thresher Ultimate will also carry forward the light weight feel seen in the Man’OWar, with them coming in at only 408g, making it easy for players to wear them, even for longer gameplay or chat sessions.
While both versions of the headset will work on the PC, as well as their respective console, you will need to buy the headset to fit the console you wish to use them with, as they do have to work with the proprietary requirements of the specific platforms.
The Razer Thresher Ultimate will launch at a price of $249.99/€279.99 in July 2017. With both versions offering compatibility with the PC.
