Razer Barracuda headphones specifications and features
The design of these headphones is flush and easy on the ears thanks to the leatherette ear pads. To enable the production of more accurate sounds, these wireless headphones make use of a THX Achromatic amplifier. They also feature Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation, which blocks off any sounds from the outside world. Both the Barracuda and Barracuda Pro have a port to house the detachable hyper clear technology cardioid microphone.
A notable improvement from last year’s Barracuda X is the bigger drivers on this year’s Razer Barracuda headphones. The new entries feature 50mm drivers, as against 40mm drivers on last year’s model. Bigger drivers help to improve the quality of sound that a user receives while using this headset.

It also gives users the liberty to lock down on sound from any device they wish to focus on at a time. The battery life of these headsets promises 40 hours of usage on a single charge.
