Razer Nari is the company's latest form of gaming headset. These products include the "advanced haptic technology" that the company clearly thinks gamers want in their headphones. It is to be known as Razer Hypersense, and was developed in conjunction with the German engineering group Lofelt. It worked on Nari with the aim of matching the quality of haptics to that of video and audio in gaming today.

Therefore, Razer Hypersense is intended to enhance immersion while playing. The Razer Nari line also exhibits a headband that adjusts to the user automatically, swiveling ear cups and cooling gel ear-cushions. This component also includes strategic cut-outs to accommodate eye-wear. This may make VR or spectacle use more comfortable while using a Nari set. Nari is also described as wired and wireless, but the specific connections involved are not detailed as yet.

The Nari series also offers THX Spatial Audio, which was only available in the Karken Tournament Edition devices previous to this. There are three SKUs available: the Nari Ultimate, Nari, and Nari Essential. They are priced at US$199.99, $149 and $99.99 respectively. The Nari Ultimate is the only model to feature Razer Hypersense., whereas the Nari has every other feature of the Ultimate. The Nari Essential lacks the eye-wear cut-outs, but does include THX Spatial Audio and the auto-fitting band. Therefore, gamers with differing budget ranges may have a decent choice for a new headset.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
