If it ain't got RGB lighting, then it ain't a Razer accessory. These second generation earbuds from Razer are compatible with Chroma and have built-in active noise cancellation alongside additional nifty features to justify the high $129 USD MSRP.

The first generation Razer Hammerhead earbuds were barebones in terms of features. They offered TWS, IPX4 water resistance, and low latency gaming mode, but they didn't do all that much more to distinguish themselves from much cheaper alternatives from lesser-known makers.

The second generation Hammerhead series adds a bunch more extras that Razer fans will certainly appreciate. Most notably, the Razer emblems on the individual earbuds are now compatible with the Chroma software for 16.8 million different colors to choose from. Users can customize the colors and effects to match their other Razer accessories.

Other than the superficial updates, the Hammerhead V2 includes active noise cancellation and Google Fast Pair which were not featured on the older model. The earbuds are now shipping for $129 USD or $30 more than the launch price of the original Hammerhead V1.

Key features:

  • Razer Chroma™ RGB lighting 
  • Active noise cancellation (ANC) with dual environmental noise cancelling (ENC) microphones 
  • Comfortable in-ear silicone tips 
  • 32.5 hours of battery life 
  • Low latency mode (60ms) for peak gaming performance.
