Razer Hammerhead USB-C ANC Review

Razer Hammerhead USB-C ANC In-Ear Headset



With so many Active Noise Cancelling options on the market lately, we were keen to see what Razer could do with their USB-C powered ANC In-Ear Headphones, the Razer Hammerhead.

My recent preference for noise-cancelling has been for over-ear headphones because I find them to have a more immersive sound experience and better noise-cancelling. Razer Hammerhead are the opposite of that with their subtle, sleek, in-ear design but they claim high-performance ANC due to their USB-C power. Dual driver technology means a rich and deep sound with no loss of high frequencies, which was surprising for such a small package. Because of the built-in Digital-to-Analogue conversion, the Razer Hammerhead produce 24bit / 96khz audio quality.

Unfortunately, I still couldn’t get along with a return to a wired headset. The audio quality is fantastic on these, but the USB-C connection is a sacrifice on comfort when using them. They seem well-built with a durable aluminium frame and braided cables which attempt to reduce cord tangles. Razer provide three sizes of silicone tips for their in-ear headphones, and you get a pair of foam Comply t-500 tips which are one of my favourite repeat purchases for in-ear headphones. The Comply tips do ensure a secure fit and improve the sound quality, so they are a nice extra to find in the box.

Beyond the impressive ANC capability of the Razer Hammerhead in-ear headphones, there’s not much else to set these apart except the price. For similar quality of sound in a wireless over-ear option, you’ll be upwards of double the price worse off. If you prefer in-line controls and a wired headset, or have a long trip coming up which your wireless headset battery won’t survive (we tested them on a four-hour flight), then you could do worse than the Razer Hammerhead.
