New Razer Opus wireless headphones comes with ANC

Razer has launched the Razer Opus wireless headphones that features THX® Certified audio and advanced hybrid Active Noise Cancellation. It will be available at select retail outlets at a recommended retail price of SGD299.90 in September 2020.

With most streaming services now providing high quality audio, a set of headphones able to produce the detail and nuances of these high definition streams is essential. But the sounds of everyday life, from the background hum of the city to the hectic lifestyle of working from home with others around you, can intrude on the listening experience, spoiling your focus and the enjoyment of high-fidelity recordings.

Less noise, more clarity

The Razer Opus uses an Advanced Hybrid Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) system to cancel out external noise, with four dedicated ANC microphones designed to accurately tune out a broad range of external frequencies, resulting in a cleaner, uninterrupted listening experience.

The Razer Opus is THX Certified, ensuring the highest possible audio standards. To achieve the requirements for THX certification, fine details such as a frequency range and response must be capable of delivering clear, detailed vocals and deep impactful bass with zero distortion at high volumes. The result is a pair of headphones that delivers crystal clear audio with a broad, perfectly balanced soundscape.

“Even with our many years of experience in creating headsets for one of the most demanding audiences in the world, the design of the Razer Opus required us to rethink every detail,” said Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Peripherals Business Unit. “With the Razer Opus headphones, we are able to deliver a listening experience that will satisfy even the most discerning audiophile, in any environment.”

High comfort, maximum versatility

The Razer Opus’ low weight and plush leatherette foam ear cushions and headband provide a comfortable, pressure-point free fit for long periods of use. Each battery charge lasts up to 25 hours with ANC on, allowing users to enjoy a continued, uninterrupted high-quality sound experience while in a noisy environment.

With additional useful features such as the Quick Attention Mode when needing to hear the outside world and the optional 3.5mm analogue input for maximum device compatibility, the Razer Opus is one of the most versatile and adaptable ANC headphones available.

Review: Philips Fidelio NC1

It was a strange sensation – the background hum of the bus engine disappeared from my ears but I could still feel the engine vibrations from the seat. That was one of my first experience when trying out the Philips Fidelio NC1. It has been a nice pair of headphones to accompany me for the last couple of weeks while loaned on review. The Fidelio NC1 is Philip’s first pair of noise cancelling headphones, featuring 40mm drivers/closed-back on-ear, memory foam cushions, and folds to a compact size to fit neatly in my daily commute bag.
