Razer, in the speaker business? Oh yeah! Razer
actually isn't a stranger to the speaker
world, and definitely not to the headphone world. The company has definitely focused more on keyboards and mice over the past few months, but today is a day for something different. The company's new Ferox Twin Speaker Set uses a design that emits omni-directional sound, expanding the sweet spot and using a expandable resonance chambers that provide stronger bass and optimized digital amplifiers for a fuller sound experience.
Razer, in typical fashion, has added a bit of style to these as well. With a single button press, the chambers raise up and pump out music, and there's even a rechargeable battery that can keep things flowing for up to 12 hours. Razer also throws in a carry case, making these great portable options for those who aren't content with their built-in laptop speakers.
These rely on just a simple 3.5mm connection, and they're priced at $59.99. They'll be on sale everywhere by the end of this month, and honestly, we're interested to see what'll compete. They're small, powerful, sleek, and use a rechargeable battery. Good stuff!
