In the market for a new chat headset? One that will not just provide great noise-free team comms, but an ultra-lightweight design at the same time? Razer have got your back with the new Tetra headset.
When Razer come to market with a new product, you should instantly know that it’ll be of the very highest quality and that certainly looks to be the case with the new Razer Tetra, an ultra-lightweight console chat headset complete with cardioid microphone that provides noise-free team comms in any home entertainment audio environment
Working perfectly on all platforms including Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC and mobile devices. Running as a single-ear option, the Tetra has been designed for those wishing to enjoy the power of their own home audio set-up, whilst still being able to become immersed with their teammates across a variety of games. When you consider that the lightweight design comes complete with crystal clear team comms, yet again it looks like Razer have pulled one out of the bag, much like they have done previously with the Turret for Xbox One.
Communication in any gaming situation is key, and to be unhindered and able to chat freely with your squad mates with clear team comms is a huge part of what makes the Tetra so interesting, with the cardioid microphone tuned for a focused voice-pickup range, reducing ambient noises from the sides and back, giving superior voice clarity over traditional chat headsets.
Further to that you can expect to see an in-line volume control in place, with a volume slider and mic mute function easily available, whilst the low 70gram weight should ensure that the Tetra is comfortable to wear for hours on end. Throw in an adjustable headband slider, plush leatherette ear cushions and a 3.5mm jack, and all things are seemingly coming together for Razer once more.
“Lots of gamers have invested in a surround sound speaker system as part of their home entertainment set-up,” says Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s peripherals business unit. “With the Razer Tetra, players can enjoy their home cinema speaker set-up with the boom of explosions in battle or the rumble of the road in a race, but still keep in touch with their teammates to win the game.”
