    Technically all speaker drivers vibrate but these are different. The Razer Nari Ultimate headphones use technology from Lofelt (the company that brought you Basslet) to TRY and take haptic gaming tech to the next level…

    Might be benefitual for me as a deaf blind gamer. I been wanting to know if it would be good for me as I've been trying to look into this but no where sells it or me to test it. Not willing to shell out the hefty bucks for it til I can make it as a streamer. But I'm definitely keeping this in mind.

    Just get Skullcandy Crusher Wireless. For half the cost, you get a Bass slider, 40 hour battery life, wired and bluetooth. Oh, and 10 minutes of charging equals 1 hour of battery life.

    You guys are worried about audio quality while using wireless headphones.
    It’s like Ethernet, you’re WiFi is not likely to be faster, or cleaner than a direct connection

    • Tajj'iia
      Tajj'iia 6 days ago

      If you’re truly worried about receiving the best quality
      You should invest in a headphone amp, and some nice WIRED studio headphones. I.e. sennheiser, audiotechnica, shure
      They are miles better, won’t damage your hearing with boosted frequencies, and cost a significant amount less
      Anyways, if you’re worried about losing bass because studio headphones have a more true sound, some headphone amps have a built in equalizer. (Side note: don’t turn the bass up, turn everything else down)

  • Project Proxy

    I want this technology for games like Beatsaber, and other immersive VR games. I haven't finished the video yet, but I don't think the Razer ones would work since you have to set the audio device as the Vive headset to take advantage of the pass through, and I doubt Razer Synapse will like that. If this tech already exists in other headsets could someone link me some? That I could potentially use with the Vive?

    I wish they were a little slimmer, but this is their first go around with the tech. This could be a huge difference in FPS gaming for someone like myself who can't hear out of one of my ears and be able to feel the direction of foot steps or any other noises from game play. LTT- or anyone else that has tried these.. in FPS games can you feel the foot steps as someone might be getting closer or around a corner, behind walls, etc?

    I have been using the Skullcandy Crushers for years now. They do the bass vibration thing, and I love it for games. Not saying they are the best sounding headphones, but for $50 less than these, you get a similar effect. have yet to try them with spatial audio though.

    Hi LMG team. Recently I have learned more about better-quality headphones manufacturers (AKG, Audiotechnica, Audeze and co) and found that many of them actually have "gaming" lineups (like Audeze Mobius or Audiotechnica ATH-ADG1X). It would be very interesting to find out if they are any good and if they are a valid competitor for more usual gaming stuff from Razer, Logitech etc. Hope this reaches you!

    Sound is just as important as sight - Yes, it definitely is, clearly you haven't played many games, specially multiplayers/co-op. Sometimes I even have to pause whatever music I'm listening to due to games audio cues or to have a more accurate awareness sense.
    Edit: who the fuck plays Warframe in your company? :DDDDDDDDD great game, 3 years in and still love it.
