This is a note directly to my friends, family, and anyone else that might be looking for a gift for me this holiday season. The Razer Kaira Pro Dual Wireless Headset with Haptics is coming out for PlayStation 5 this holiday season. Pre-orders begin on 30th November.
This headset comes packed with force feedback for your head, big sound from titanium speakers, RGB lighting, a detachable microphone, and the dual wireless name comes from the ability to either connect via Bluetooth or 2.4GHz wireless through a USB-C dongle. The ear pads are “Plush Leatherette Memory Foam” and the battery life will last anywhere between 11 to 50 hours depending on what features are used.
A ‘headset with haptics’ is an interesting idea, and it’s all thanks to Razer HyperSense. The sensation of feeling the sounds on your head reportedly comes from audio cues to “deliver rich, lifelike touch sensory feedback,” which is combined with Razer’s TriForce titanium 50mm drivers to deliver the sound. The top of the line will cost around $199.99 USD or €219.99 MSRP when it releases in December this year.
Knowing the folks at Razer and the line of products they have out there, this is sure to be another quality item. Through the multitude of reviews online for the existing Xbox edition of the same headset, it ranks on average at 4 out of 5 stars. Just about a year and two weeks ago, Razer announced the Kaira Pro wireless headset for Xbox Series X and S players. That headset also works with Windows 10 PC and Android users thanks to Bluetooth 5.0.
Now PlayStation 5 users will be able to get in on the Kaira Pro fun with their own specified edition.
There also exists a PlayStation edition of the Razer Kaira headset for just about half the price, and it’s available now. The differences between the two models are the lack of HyperSense, the lack of Chroma RBG, and the mic isn’t detachable. Also, the speakers aren’t titanium and the exterior of the headset lacks metal accents.
Still, coming in at $99.99 USD / €109.99 MSRP, the Kaira will provide 30 hours of gameplay before needing a charge. In reality, if you don’t need all of the bells and whistles from the Pro, the regular looks to do just fine.
