The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro are available for $199.99 at major online retailers, including Amazon and GameStop. On-ear detection is available and works accurately, meaning you'll be able to automatically pause playback when removing the buds and resume play when placing them back on the ear. Siri demonstrated solid speech recognition, picking up syllables and full sentences very well.

Sentiment Score[*] 45%
Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
Razer's Hammerhead True Wireless earphones mimic the bud-and-stem structure of the AirPods. The Pro model adds in-canal eartips and active noise cancellation circuitry. The earphones are rated IPX4, which means they're modestly water resistant. These aren't earphones for anyone looking for strong noise cancellation.

  • In-canal fit and active noise cancellation
  • Solid battery life
Cons[**]
  • In-ear eartips are awkward to use

Sentiment Score[*] 64%
Reviewers from rtings have found the following[***]:
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro are in-ears with an active noise cancelling (ANC) feature. They have a very bass-heavy sound profile, which is well-suited for boomy genres like EDM and hip-hop. The Apple AirPods Pro Truly Wireless are better headphones for most uses. They also have a more neutral sound profile and their active noise cancellation does a better job of isolating noise.

  • Good sound quality
  • Good battery life
  • Good noise isolation
Cons[**]
  • Mediocre noise isolation

Reviewers from theverge have found the following[***]:
Razer's Hammerhead True Wireless Pros are a major improvement over the company's first pair of true wireless earbuds. They've switched from an open-air design to a sealed fit; have better sound, thanks to that decision (and a partnership with THX); and they offer adequate active noise cancellation. Razer packages seven sets of ear tips in the box: there's standard silicone and a grippier version that's meant for active use cases like running.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent sound quality
  • Comply foam ear tips
  • Excellent active noise cancellation
  • Comfortable fit
Cons[**]
  • Poor ANC
  • Mediocre battery life
