Razer, the RGB-infused gaming hardware giant, has not gone all-in on manufacturing VR peripherals. However, it has released a few pieces of VR equipment. This time, Razer claims to be introducing a Quest-branded version of its noise-canceling Hammerhead HyperSpeed earphones.
Razer Earbuds for Quest 3 and Quest 2
The earphones for Quest 3 and Quest 2 were announced alongside pre-orders for Quest 3. They contain a USB-C dongle for a low-latency 2.4GHz wireless connection as well as Bluetooth 5.2 capability.
Compatibility and Availability of Razer Earbuds
Originally released in late 2022, Razer’s standard noise-canceling HammerHead HyperSpeed earbuds support a wide range of devices, including PS5, PS4, PC, MAC, smartphones, tablets, and handheld gaming devices with Bluetooth audio capability or USB-C/USB-A port. You can already have them in two flavors, branded either for Xbox or PlayStation.
Razer says the earbuds are slated to be released later this year. There is no pricing idea yet, although Razer’s standard Hammerhead Hyperspeed earbuds cost around $150. Considering this looks to be more of a brand licensing deal than the “Made for Meta” badging might suggest, you can probably bet on that pricing.
Other Compatible Earbuds
While we have not seen a list of supported USB-C headphones for Quest 3, Meta has a certified number of other earbuds, including the similar wireless Anker Soundcore VR P10 earbuds and wired USB-C Earbuds for Pixel, Samsung, and OnePlus.
