Razer Barracuda: HP-1 Gaming Headset



Razer, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end precision gaming and lifestyle electronics peripherals, has given us the opportunity to review their Barracuda. The Razer Barracuda is a 5.1 channel surround sound headset. We have seen how well Razer has performed in the past with their superior technology, but how will they perform with their new gaming headset?

Razer's Take:

"The Razer Barracuda HP-1 Gaming Headphones features eight discrete audio drivers to enable pinpoint positional accuracy essential for gaming. It features advanced noise cancellation capabilities and a built-in microphone designed specifically for in-game communications — ideal for frenzied in-game communication."



The headset comes packaged in a rather stylish box. Located on the front of the box is a picture of the headset and the name on a reflective surface. The front panel of the box lifts open which allows you to see the headset itself. On the back there is a features and specifications list. Overall the box is very well designed and just by looking at it you can tell it is a high-end headset.
