We’re no strangers to the gaming goodness that is RAZER products. After reviewing keyboards, headsets, mice, and speakers made by them, we’ve got a pretty good handle on how good their stuff is or can be. Today, we get a look and a listen at one of their new products made for the portable gaming market. The RAZER Moray In-Ear Noise Isolating Gaming Earphones are designed to give gamers rocking the PSP, Nintendo DS, or even a digital audio player of your choice “powerful bass-driven stereo sound and mid/high range clarity”. Let’s see how they score with us.
Features and SpecificationsThe RAZER Moray’s use a noise isolating design using replaceable earpieces that form to the ear canal. The seal that is achieved allows these earphones to give extended bass (down to 20Hz according to the specs) while isolating the listener from outside noise. This also means that you can use lower volumes, making it somewhat safer for your ears. Sensitivity of 110dB also makes them very suitable for portable devices that have lower powered headphone jacks like portable gaming systems and media players.
The earphones weigh a scant 10.7 grams and use a regular 3.5mm jack. They come in two colors, black and white (as reviewed). MSRP for these headphones run approximately $49.99 USD.
What’s Inside The Box?
Inside the box, you’ll find the headphones themselves, three seperate pairs of ear pieces, an airline headphone adapter, carrying pouch, some RAZER stickers and a quickstart guide. You’ll also find RAZER’s certificate of authenticity welcoming you to the “Cult of RAZER”.
The earphones themselves don’t seem that remarkable out of the box. Except for the earpieces themselves and the RAZER logo, they don’t look that different from a set of cheapie headphones you’d find for $10 bucks at a Chinese Night Market.
Different from most cheap headphones out there is of course the use of the noise isolating gaskets on the ear pieces. Three sizes come with the headphones for a custom fit.
The headphones come with a carrying case that is made to carry the extra earpieces and the airline adapter. With all the stuff packed inside, the case is just a little bigger than an Apple iPod Touch.
