Razer Barracuda X (2022) Review

 

Strong audio performance ; Clear mic quality ; Comfortable fit ; Plenty of connectivity options with Bluetooth, USB-C transmitter, and 3.5mm

7.1-channel simulated surround sound isn't the most accurate ; Doesn't come with a carrying bag or case

The 2022 Razer Barracuda X is one of the best wireless gaming headsets you can buy for $100, with strong performance, a comfortable fit, and lots of connectivity options, including Bluetooth.

Razer Barracuda Wireless Review

 

The Razer Barracuda Wireless are the mid-range model of the Barracuda lineup, which are hybrid-use headphones. Sitting in between the budget-friendly Razer Barra...

Comfortable and well-built design. Companion app and software offer a myriad of sound customization features. Low latency via USB dongle. Supports multi-device pairing. Over 46-hour continuous battery life.

Won't block out any vehicle-related noise. Closed-off, in-head passive soundstage. Not stable enough for physical activity. Integrated mic offers mediocre overall mic performance. Don't come with a carrying case.

The Razer Barracuda aren't designed for neutral sound. Their warm sound profile is designed to help emphasize sound effects like footsteps in gameplay, but it can muddy and bloat vocals and instruments a bit. There's also some overemphasis from the...

Razer Barracuda X Wireless 2021 Review

 

The Razer Barracuda X Wireless 2021 are budget-friendly headphones with a gaming-oriented design. They come with a detachable boom microphone that can transmit y...

Good noise handling performance. Low latency. Excellent imaging performance. Comfortable fit. Over 24-hour continuous battery life.

No carrying case included. No companion app. No sound customization features. Leak some noise. Bulky design. Poor noise isolation.

The Razer Barracuda X are satisfactory for neutral sound. Out-of-the-box, they have a fairly neutral, though slightly warm sound profile that adds a little extra thump and punch in the bass range. However, higher frequencies of vocals and lead...

Razer Barracuda Headset

 

Razer has been in the enthusiast game for a quite some time now offering quality mice aimed towards the gamer. Using the momentum they have gained from such products as the Diamondback and the Copperhead, Razer has just released the Barracuda HP-1....

Surround like sound ; High Quality build ; Killer Looks ; Ear pods are soft ; Mic is accurate and picks up voices well ; Can be used with any sound card

Slightly uncomfortable for those with large heads like myself ; Proprietary connection pointless for most ; Disappointing bass performance ; Expensive

To test out the HP-1, I started off by playing a few rounds of BF2 and Counter Strike: Source. In CS:S, while the game play is top notch, the sound lacks a bit. Even though, with the 'surround sound' feel of the headphones, I was able to get a good...

The Razer Barracuda is truly versatile, but at what cost?

Razer Barracuda HP-1 5.1 Headphones

 

A perfect headset for gamers, with heavy bias towards gunshots, crisp sword clangs and explosions.

Razer HP-1 Barracuda 8-Channel Gaming Headphones review

 

Razer is well-known for its myriad gaming mice, but the company has recently branched out in an attempt to capture other areas of the PC gaming market. In addition to the Tarantula keyboard, this year has also seen the company introduce the $130...

The Razer Barracuda HP-1 Gaming Headphones provide excellent 5.1 surround sound for games. The removable microphone is great for online multiplayer and VoIP applications. The built-in amp is powered by a USB connection, rather than the AC power found...

The headphones don't sound as good with movies and music as they do with games. You must buy Razer's sound card to truly optimize audio.

The Razer Barracuda HP-1 Gaming Headphones are great for gameplay, but there are better options for music and movies.
