razer opus review

Razer has enter the world of noise-cancelling wireless headphones, with the clean design of the Razer Opus, minus the thress snake logo, going for a more main stream look.

With a strong resemblance to Sony WH-100Xm2, all the controls come via five buttons instead of the touch panels normally found on Razor headsets. These include your volume control, answer calls, ambient sound toggle, and turning on and off. It retains like most top of the range headsets the auto-pause and auto-play when you take the Opus off and on.

The Opus, though, have remarkably effective active noise cancellation at a price that makes them a tantalizing value.

Each can houses a 40mm driver along with two internal microphones for noise cancellation. The memory foam cushions help boost audio quality with a tighter seal around your ears. running on Bluetooth 4.2, support aptX plus AAC codecs, and a single charge lasting up to 25 hours (depending on how load you like it). The companion app lets you mess around with your audio settings, (more bass! more bass!)
