Razer Barracuda X review


The Razer Barracuda X is a solid 4-in-1 wireless gaming headset with software stuck behind a paywall

Comfortable ear cups ; Solid gaming and music performance ; Works wirelessly with almost every system ; USB Type-C charging

Cheap plastic design ; No included audio software

The Razer Barracuda X features solid audio performance in a comfortable design, but its cheap materials and lack of free software are low points.

Razer Barracuda X review


The Razer Barracuda X is an inexpensive and versatile wireless gaming headset, which plays nicely with PC, PlayStation and Switch, but has few bells and whistles.

Works with PC, PlayStation and Switch ; Simple, intuitive controls ; Clear mic

No customization options ; Plain design ; Workmanlike sound quality

also costs $100, and lets you manipulate a variety of software options. The Arctis 1 Wireless is probably a better headset all around, but the Barracuda X is simpler to use. You’ll have to decide for yourself whether that simplicity is worth...
