The Review of the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless (Gen 2)
Razer has carved a niche for itself in gaming laptop market (check out our favorable Razer Blade 15 Advance review for reference) and has done the same with its popular wireless gaming earbuds. Two years after releasing the very first model, the decision was made to update the original creation, giving us the all-new Razer Hammerhead True Wireless (2nd generation).
So, what’s new about this follow-up? A more traditional in-ear design, active noise cancellation (ANC), Bluetooth 5.2, Google Fast Pair and RBG lighting. These earbuds also offer THX-certified sound, which was introduced on the more premium Hammerhead True Wireless Pro, while retaining series features such as low-latency gaming mode and IPX4 certification.
Our expert picks for the best wireless earbuds, by budget and style Check out our Apple AirPods Pro review…and our Sony WF-1000XM4 review Not every category (e.g. touch controls, battery life) sees a noticeable improvement, but it’s the audio experience and special features which make the Hammerhead True Wireless 2021 well worth their attainable price.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless at Razer for $129 Razer Hammerhead True Wireless review: Availability and price The second-generation Razer Hammerhead True Wireless currently retails for $129.99 at Amazon or directly from Razer. Unlike the original, this version is sold in only one color: Black. Included with purchase is a charging case, USB-A to USB-C cable, users guide, and three different ear sizes tips.
In comparison, the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless goes for less than other popular wireless ANC earbuds in its price range, like the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 ($149) and Beats Studio Buds ($149). It’s also priced lower than category leaders like the AirPods Pro ($249) and Sony WF-1000XM4 ($279), as well as its high-end sibling, the Hammerhead True Wireless Pro ($179). If you are looking for something cheaper and with more features, the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro is a solid alternative available at the time of publication for just $84.99 at Best Buy.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless review: Design From a design standpoint, the Hammerhead True Wireless has more in common with the Pro version than the original. The long-stem silhouette and all-black finish remain intact, as the Pro has a more matte finish and a large mic inlet for enhanced ANC. Build quality is legit with sturdy plastic covering each button, along with IPX4 certification for sweat and water resistance.
What you’re really curious about is the light show, which is powered by Razer’s Chroma RBG system. This feature presents a unique way to personalize the buttons, adding flair to your look by choosing from 16.8 million colors and various effects represented through the snake logo. We’ll go into more detail on this later.
The charging case looks no different than the charging case of the Pro. It is made entirely of plastic, comes with a matte finish, has the brand etched on the top of the lid and displays the buttons inside nicely. The magnets are also strong, keeping the lid tightly closed and keeping the buttons safe during commuting.
Weighing only 1.86 grams, you get some pleasant comfort from the Hammerhead True Wireless, something that fervent mobile gamers who want to play for several hours every day. The angled sound port slides easily into the channel and rests gently on the concha.
Despite not coming with Comply foam tips, exclusive to the Pro, Razer’s silicone tips create a nice seal to minimize slippage.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless review: Controls and Digital Assistant A full suite of media controls is at your disposal, including playback, call management, digital assistance, volume and listening mode activation. Unfortunately, they weren’t as reliable as I would have liked, and I felt the company was getting a little too ambitious with its audit schedule.
Most input methods are standard, split between multiple tap and hold gestures, but some are odd choices. For example, the Hammerhead True Wireless requires a single press to play/pause rather than a single tap. Meanwhile, other playback controls, such as skip/previous track, require just a double/triple tap. Then there’s the double tap and hold gesture to manage the volume, which seems out of place and annoying to use. What makes operating the controls even more frustrating is the inaccuracy of the touchpads. Many times I had to repeat two and three tap gestures to enable the assigned functions.
