Razer has announced its latest pair of the over-ear headphones, the Opus. Sporting 40 mm drivers, the Opus is THX-certified, supports aptX, ANC and is rated for up to 25 hours of battery life.
Alex Alderson,

Razer has announced the Opus, its latest pair of wireless over-ear headphones. The Opus is not another pair of gaming headphones though, with Razer focusing on delivering "pure, high-fidelity sound with zero distractions". The design of the headphones reflects that intention in our opinion, with the Opus baring a closer resemblance to the Sony WH-1000XM3 than other Razer headphones like the Nari Ultimate.

To that end, the Opus is THX-certified. Razer has owned THX since 2016, but stresses that it does not influence the THX Headphone Certification Program. The Opus features two 40 mm dynamic drivers that deliver a frequency response of between 20 Hz and 20 kHz. The Opus weighs 265 g and supports auto play/pause functionality for when you remove the headphones from your head. Additionally, Razer has included four microphones for active noise cancellation (ANC) and another two for voice calls.

Razer promises that the Opus should last up to 25 hours between charges with ANC on. The Opus also supports AAC, aptX and up to Bluetooth 4.2. Razer has developed an accompanying app for Android and iOS too. 

Available in Midnight Blue or Black, the Opus is available to order from Razer now for US$199.99 or £199.99. Razer also includes the following accessories in the box: 

  • Carry case
  • Airplane adapter
  • 3.5 mm analogue cable - 1.5 m
  • USB Type-C to USB Type-C cable - 30 cm
  • USB Type-A to USB Type-C adapter
