RAZER LAUNCHES THRESHER ULTIMATE GAMING HEADSET FOR XBOX ONE AND PLAYSTATION 4

Premium console headset focuses on sound quality, comfort and wireless reliability

 

LOS ANGELES (E3 2017) – Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the Razer Thresher Ultimate wireless headsets for Xbox One and PlayStation® 4. Both models are PC compatible.

The Razer Thresher Ultimate delivers wireless Dolby 7.1 surround sound for the most immersive audio experience possible on console. The headset is capable of the highest audio bandwidth on console, delivering the highest highs and the lowest lows. 

Large 50 mm drivers pump directional audio into each leatherette ear cup, cushioned with memory foam for state-of-the-art comfort, sound quality and noise isolation. Also available are cooling-gel infused ear cushions designed for even longer hours of comfortable gameplay.

The Razer Thresher Ultimate is also the most reliable wireless console headset designed with a connection range up to 40 feet.

The headset comes with a retractable digital microphone for clear voice communication thanks to a unidirectional mic boom design. On-headset controls for mic volume, game and voice chat balance (on Xbox One) and master volume (on PlayStation 4) allow for quick access to every important audio setting.

“We are taking our expertise in designing the very best PC gaming hardware into the console arena,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “These are the most reliable and best-sounding wireless console headsets ever made.”

Razer’s rich history in hardware continues to extend into console. The Thresher Ultimate is joined by Razer’s tournament-grade Wildcat and Raiju controllers, while the company’s Atrox and Panthera fightsticks are used by the most renowned professional fighting game players.

The Razer Thresher Ultimate is an officially licensed accessory designed for the Xbox One family of devices, compatible with Xbox One, Xbox One S and Xbox One X. Both the Xbox One version and the PlayStation 4 version are shipping in June.
