Razer Issues Limited Edition PAX Moray+ Headset

Razer has been branching out on their products for quite some time, with the company's audio range being its go-to line when the mice and keyboard grows tired. With the PAX 2009 conference in full swing out on the west coast of America, Razer is joining forces in order to issue a limited edition PAX series of its Moray+ mobile gaming communicator.

Tailored specifically for gamers, the device is an in-ear noise isolating earphone equipped with an omnidirectional inline microphone. There doesn't seem to be much difference between the original Moray+ and this one, but we suspect the hardcore gaming crowd will have an easier time buying in to something with a PAX logo on there. Robert "Razerguy" Krakoff, president, Razer, had this to say about his newly-branded kit:

"We're excited about continuing our relationship with PAX again, this time with the Razer Moray+, a superior mobile gaming communicator, to create a memorable, special edition quality product. This gives on-the-go gamers who travel to events like PAX a compact headset solution that is portable and lightweight. No need to lug around large headsets - this is an earphone that satisfies gamers' audio, communication and gaming needs."

The device will be made available in PAX Blue, with the omnidirectional pickup pattern capturing sound input from any direction when used with VoIP/chat apps like Skpe, Ventrilo, etc. Razer also throws in adapters in order to make this compatible with Apple's iPhone and the average PC, and there is also three adapters that make it play nice with the Nintendo DS Lite/DSi, netbooks, laptops, and Sony's PSP. The only way you're getting one is if you drop by Razer's PAX booth and hand over $60, but we're sure someone on the floor would gladly ship you once for a small premium.
