The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless earbuds are a solid choice if you're looking for versatile earbuds with lower midrange pricing. They have a stemmed form factor with a closed enclosure, providing good noise isolation. With excellent scores for gaming due to a low latency game mode and very good build quality, they are durable and great for dynamic sound. However, they are poor for calls and meetings, indicating that the microphone quality may not be ideal in noisy environments. They have an app with equalizer and control customization features, which is a plus for sound personalization. These earbuds also have a decent battery life, are sweatproof certified, support the AAC codec, and are suitable for use during exercise. They are not the best option for listening to music or consuming book/podcast content as they scored fair and poor in those areas, respectively. If active noise canceling is important for you, these earbuds come equipped with that feature as well. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Gaming:
4.6
This score evaluates the product when used to play videogames. It takes into account wireless latency - the perceived delay between the action on screen and the sounds playing in your ears. The score also considers soundstage quality, whether they have a virtual surround feature, and overall comfort. Finally, the gaming score takes into account microphone quality for in-game voice chat. It’s important to note that the device paired with the earbuds heavily influences their performance in regards to latency or delay.
Air Travel:
4.5
This score evaluates the product for use on airplanes and other similar kinds of travel. It takes into account noise reduction and portability, including case shape, case size, and weight. It also incorporates the battery life of the product, long-haul comfort, noise reduction (both active and passive), and sound quality. We generally consider wireless products to be more suitable for air travel.
TV & Video:
4.4
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless is well-suited for watching TV and videos thanks to their low latency mode, which reduces audio delay, ensuring that the sound is well-synced with the visual content. They also have a solid overall sound quality that can enrich the viewing experience without the inconvenience of wires.
Portability:
4.4
The Portability score is based on an overall assessment that includes volume and maximum dimension of the product (and case, if relevant), and its weight. Special features like foldability for headphones are also taken into account.
Exercise:
4.1
This score evaluates the product when used for exercise and physical activity. It mainly takes into account comfort, whether or not the products are sweatproof and how secure are the earbuds or headphones while wearing them. We also consider products with wireless capabilities to be more suitable for this particular scenario
Battery Life:
4.0
The Battery Life rating is based on hours of typical, actual usage.
Music:
3.6
This evaluates the product when used solely to listen to music. It takes into account the sound quality, whether or not they support high quality codecs, their ability to reproduce soundstage, and whether or not it has any virtual surround capabilities.

The Verge

Chris Welch | August 2019
"This latest set is more “Pro” than not in both looks and features: they offer active noise cancellation, a low-latency gaming mode, and have switched to a in-ear design with silicone tips. Just like many of the company’s laptops and gaming accessories, the 2021 Hammerhead True Wireless include Razer’s full Chroma RGB system. It makes for what Razer calls “the ultimate wireless earbud flex.”"
