Simple design in team style “green snake”
One thing has always made me appreciate our products Razer the design is somewhat minimalistic, an image of the people playing poise instead of the pit, colorful like other gaming village names. Hammerhead True Wireless Pro (in the article will be called Hammerhead Pro for short, differentiated from the regular version) still shows that style. The matte black tone covers from the charging box to the headset, the most striking detail comes from the brand’s logo, and is also the touch control area located on the housing part of the product.
I feel a bit lacking in the look of the charging case. The engraved Razer inscription on the lid does a good job of providing the information that this wireless headset is in the “green snake team” (if you take a hard look). I want the appearance of the logo of the three snakes, at least so that the product does not need to be pitiful but not to be trivial.
Hammerhead Pro headphones are in-ear forms complete from the same matte plastic material as the charging box. Shaping the housing part and the sound duct in an ergonomic direction, which easily fits into a variety of ear molds. Of course, the product still retains the characteristic of earphones in that it is necessary to choose the right pair of tips to get the best results from sound quality, wearing comfort and sound insulation.
Noise cancellation is decent, but low latency is the most valuable feature
Like many other true wireless headphones, Razer’s products also support controls by touching the housing. The point I appreciate is that you can easily customize them for your own habits in the Hammerhead True Wireless app. The default setting has some relatively complicated operations such as activating the Gaming Mode with 3 consecutive touches, then long press for 2 seconds.
The product’s main application allows you to customize touch gestures for maximum convenience
Touch touch on the headset (Razer logo) works not very quickly. For features to work as desired requires users to accurately touch the center area. I myself in the evaluation process have encountered many times of turning on / off the mode by pressing and holding for 2 seconds to perform until the second time the headset responds.
Hammerhead Pro has active noise cancellation and can be conveniently switched on and off through touch on the headset. I enjoy experiencing the presence of this feature because in a crowded, noisy space like a cafe, this will be what helps you get the necessary tranquility. Frankly speaking, the active noise cancellation of this product is quite good, ie about 70% reduction of the surrounding volume. You will still hear a fleeting sound of people, the music in the shop will enter your ears.
Although it is not enough to separate yourself into a separate world, but unless I am the one seeking absolute tranquility, that is enough for me to feel comfortable and concentrate better. The remaining 30% can be filled with tunes and sounds you love.
High latency (average 240 ms – 300 ms) appears in wireless headsets in general, true wireless in particular makes using them for gaming purposes, streaming content is often discouraged by the phenomenon. pre-run negative. So products from Razer possessing low latency at 60 ms can be considered as the solution for users who love the convenience of wireless headphones.
To enable low latency you need to enable Game Mode in Hammerhead Pro’s management app. In real-time testing with popular titles like League of Legends, PUBG Mobile, and World Of Tanks, I easily completed the level without having to deal with phase-difference sound.
As for shooting games, the sense of the enemy’s voice, the direction of the bullets to reach this headset model shows a round shoulder. Of course, I just play for entertainment purely, for professional gamers, the choice of wired headphones is still “true” thanks to the stability and latency of almost zero.
So the low latency feature on the Razer Hammerhead Pro is worth the money? For entry-level users like me who want to take advantage of the compact wireless headsets for gaming and entertainment and for those who stream content, this is clearly the option to consider. Partly because of the effectiveness it brings, partly because there are not many products on the market with similar features.
Balanced sound quality, easy to hear noise
Labeled THX, this wireless headset is tuned for sound quality to meet the standards set by this same-name audio solutions company under Razer. The Hammerhead Pro works in THX mode by default, but you can easily choose from another mode via a smartphone app like bass / vocal enhancement or equalizer adjustment.
HammerHead True Wireless application interface
In the sound quality assessment, I use THX mode because after trying some other modes such as bass enhancement, in addition to the product increasing the volume, the difference in performance is negligible.
At the price of 5 million VND, the Razer Hammerhead Pro owns a relatively balanced sound quality in all three bass – mid – treble bands. The bass (bass) hit has a neat bouncing force, less pulling the tail and not overwhelming the other two bands. Volume and bass may not be “high” for the basshead, but in general it is still enough for you to dance with exciting songs like Team Karik’s Ala Ela. For people who like to hear “noise” like me, the bass quality of the Razer home headphones is really ideal.
Not as exciting as the bass range, but overall the mid and treble of the HammerHead Pro have rounded up my shoulders. The midrange reproduces a slightly darker bias while the high notes lack a bit of shimmer and clarity.
The picture is the strong point of the product from Razer if compared to the Galaxy Buds + model I am using. Rich sound quality, rounded expression from vocals to musical instruments. Soundstage is still the common weakness of these in-ear headphones in this price range when they have not yet shown the 3D volume in complex concert tracks.
Average battery life
The Razer HammerHead Pro gives about 4 hours of continuous listening time. This is not an impressive number when compared to other wireless headphones. Of course, depending on your usage, this product can respond well or not. I myself have a habit of wearing continuously from morning until the end of a working day, so I have had a case in the middle of the afternoon when headphones had to be put in the box to charge the battery. If you use breaks during the day, you won’t have to worry about this.
The company said the charging box has enough battery life to fully charge the headset four more times, bringing the total usage time to 20 hours. It’s a bit regrettable that the price is more than 5 million, but the product only supports charging via USB-C port, there is no fast charging technology or wireless charging like some other products.
Charging the headset via USB-C is the only option in HammerHead Pro, instead of supporting wireless charging like some rival products.
Overall, the Razer HammerHead Pro is a quality wireless headset from form to sound quality. Especially with Gaming Mode, it reduces transmission latency to 60ms, making it ideal for playing games that require precise, responsive reflexes.
Who is the rival of the Razer HammerHead?
The latest product rival from Razer is the model Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro. The genuine price of 4.5 million VND with full features, new technology and sound quality is appreciated, this is definitely a more economical choice when compared to HammerHead Pro.
AirPods Pro Definitely the choice of the majority of the Apple devotees. Not only works best with iphone, macbook, but active noise cancellation, voice mic are all other strong points in this product.
Is the oldest product in the products here but Sony WF-1000XM3 still a formidable opponent. Good sound quality, impressive noise resistance and now you can buy genuine products at a very good price, making this a worthwhile option.
