    Razer expands its multi-platform wireless headset variant, the Barracuda X with 2 new variants namely the Razer Barracuda and the Razer Barracuda Pro. Announced and launched quite recently, these trio of “street-styled” gaming headsets is sure to appease the multi-gamer in you as it comes packed with various new technological inclusions.

    One of which is the Razer SmartSwitch Dual Wireless (2.4GHz and BT), allowing you to pair your Razer Barracuda to two devices switching between one and the other instantaneously without the need to go through the process of pairing again. This is extremely useful if you’re gaming and you suddenly need to take a call. All Barracuda models support both Razer HyperSpeed Wireless (2.4GHz) and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, for high-speed gaming performance and mobile-friendly Bluetooth convenience.

    The Razer Barracuda Pro is the top-of-the-line wireless gaming headset among the series. Aside from having the Razer SmartSwitch, the Barracuda Pro is also equipped with Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation Technology (ANC) and Dual Integrated Noise-Cancelling Microphones which is further amplified by three levels of noise suppression through the companion Razer Audio App. This gives users clear audio without the distractions of your surroundings.
