Razer has become a staple when it comes to peripherals as a whole. Being one of the first 'gamer orientated' brands to his the market, you can often see Razer products sneaking their way into almost any gamer's lifetime in one form or another. With casual and professional gamers alike claiming that the DeathAdder mouse is the best shape in the world, I got my hands-on a pair of their Adaro Stereos headphones to test for myself.
I'm going to be honest and say this is the first Razer product I have liked straight out of the box. As the DeathAdder shape isn't suitable for my grip and some of their keyboards not quite being my cup of tea, I was surprised by the plush, portable and lightweight feeling this pair of headphones gives you.
After reviewing the CM Storm Ceres 500 recently, alongside using my Tt eSPORTS Dracco Captain headset and the Tt eSPORTS Shock 3D 7.1 for a while, all of these offerings are quite similar in design - it's a nice change of pace to try out the Adaro. Read on for some more in-depth thoughts and analysis.
Delivered without a microphone, these headphones contain a simple quote on the top of their packaging which reads "the art of sound." This confirms my initial thoughts in the fact that these headphones are offered not only toward a hardcore gaming audience, but also to those who enjoy movies and music.
Featuring "custom tuned" 40mm dynamic drivers, plush leather on-ear cushions and a fully adjustable design, this headset is further-confirmed as something for lovers of music and travel.
The technicalities in their 40mm driver offering include a frequency response of 20 - 20,000 Hz, an impedance of 32 Ohms, alongside the sensitivity at 1KHz being rated at 104dB ± 3dB and the whole package features an input power of 50mW.
Weighing in at only 0.4 lbs, this audio accessory feels like a feather when compared to my previous CM Storm Ceres 500, which hits the scales at 1.06 lbs in total weight.
Pricing & Availability
The Razer Adaro Stereos is listed for a mid-range price point at $94.99 when seen on Amazon's US store. This is rated at a massive $100 lower when compared to the 'DJ edition' which comes in at $197.99 and it's far cheaper than the wireless option - listed for sale at $151.14.
What's in the box?
Featuring an extremely simple package, the Razer Adaro Stereos simply comes with the unit itself and a few different instruction and warranty booklets. Included also are the general-issue Razer stickers, extremely suitable to throw on your laptop lid or the back of your PC monitor, if you see fit.
As Razer talks about portability quite often throughout their online spiel, sales promotions and the box itself, I was surprised to see no carry case included with the product - this would greatly help the transport of the items as I use my Tt eSPORTS carry-pouches on the regular when attending LAN events, travelling abroad or heading around to a mates place.
