Razer has launched the Barracuda Pro as its latest THX-enhanced gaming headphones. The brand also asserts that it is also ideal for use outdoors, thanks to its design and specs. It is rated for hybrid active noise cancellation (ANC) and beam-forming dual mics for call quality. The Barracuda Pro has an estimated 40 hours of battery life per charge, but lacks a wired mode.

Razer has added a new member to its Barracuda series of gaming audio accessories. Its new Pro variant has "TriForce Bio-Cellulose" 50mm drivers, covered with "pressure-relieving" memory foam ear-cushions. They also have a new THX Achromatic Audio Amplifier (or AAA...of course) feature, as well as Spatial Audio for virtual surround, as if to back its gaming credentials up.

Then again, Razer backs the Barracuda Pro as an all-round headset, with "world-class noise cancelling technology" (albeit that of a hybrid variety) that supports an ambient mode. It revolves around a cut-out eerily like those of the Sony WH-1000XM3s or XM4s; on that note, they also fold flat and have padding around a stainless-steel headband.

Despite their pro-versatility marketing, the Barracuda Pro headphones can only connect via either 2.4GHz Wi-Fi (via a type-C dongle) or Bluetooth 5.2, selectable via the set's Razer SmartSwitch toggle. They are available on their OEM's website from now for US$249.99.
