Razer Nari Wireless headphones will literally shake you

Razer has announced the Razer Nari Wireless family of gaming headsets that rumble; a first in gaming.

The headsets feature Razer HyperSense — an advanced haptic technology feedback that lets you feel the sound as you play. Basically, the headset physically vibrates along with the sound, just like your game controller. 

How’s that for next level immersion?

Razer worked with German engineering firm Lofelt™  to develop this pioneering technology. Lofelt specializes in haptic technologies for immersive, natural, lifelike experiences.

Each ear cup has proprietary Lofelt L5 Haptic drivers which can generate a maximum force of 4.3G. That’s similar to a high-g rollercoaster.

I’m no expert but that sounds like a hell of a lot of force to vibrate one’s head. Just imagine how in-game gunshots would feel?

With the Razer Nari Ultimate, we are championing a whole new way for gamers to feel their games through Razer HyperSense.— Min-Liang Tan, CEO & Co-founder Razer

The Razer Nari family comes in three flavours;

  • Razer Nari Ultimate with HyperSense — AUD$349.95
  • Razer Nari — AUD$249.95
  • Razer Nari Essential — AUD$169.95

The Ultimate is the headliner and is the only one with HyperSense. The mid-tier Razer Nari lacks HyperSense but matches the Ultimate for all other features.

These include wireless and wired modes, THX Spatial Audio, self-adjusting headband, Razer Chroma lighting and cooling gel ear cushions.

The Razer Nari Essential makes some sacrifices, coming with smaller 40mm drivers and no Razer Chroma but boast a great 16-hour battery life for wireless gaming.

The Razer Nari is available immediately on the RazerStore with the Ultimate and Essential coming later in the year.
