Razer is releasing a new headset that looks promising. The venoumous green, Razer Orca is targeted at gamers and music enthusiasts alike. It features a small braided cable for listening to music on the go, but includes a 2 meter extension cable for an easier transition into gaming mode.
The headset’s drivers have been, “optimized for gaming action and thumping bass of your favorite artists, the Razer Orca excels in providing a dual-purpose solution for gamers and music lovers.” I am going to go out on a limb and say these are going to over emphasize bass frequencies. The sweet deal here has to be the price point, at $59.99 I will likely give the Orcas a review.
