What you need to know

  • Razer announced the Opus X headset today.
  • The headset features active noise cancellation technology and two built-in microphones.
  • The Razer Opus X launches today with a starting price of $100.

Razer announced its new Opus X headset today. The headset features active noise cancellation (ANC) technology and has a 60 ms low latency Gaming Mode. It also has two built-in microphones for in-game communication or video conferencing. The Opus X headset is available starting today for $100 in green, mercury (white), and quartz (pink).

The headphones feature 40 mm drivers, and Razer highlights that they're good for gaming as well as entertainment. If you're using the headphones on the go or just need to hear your surroundings, they have a Quick Attention Mode that brings in external noise.

The Opus X connects through Bluetooth 5.0, which allows it to use less power than previous Bluetooth connections such as Bluetooth 4.2. With noise cancellation on, the Opus X will get up to 30 hours of battery life. That bumps up to 40 hours of battery life if you turn off noise cancellation.

Razer already makes some of the best PC gaming headsets, according to our experts. Once we get our hands on the Opus X headset, we'll see if it deserves a spot on our list as well.

Last year's Razer Opus headset was the company's first pair of headphones not exclusively aimed at gaming. The new Opus X follows those same lines of versatility.
