The Review on Razer Anzu Smart Glasses

The Razer Anzu Smart Glasses double as earphones, but they don’t sound nearly as good as the real thing. US street price $199.99

Audio-focused smart glasses seem like a good idea in theory, so you can listen to music without earphones, just by running it through your glasses. However, we have yet to test a few that work really well, with the Amazon Echo Frames and Bose Frames Tempo offering relatively mediocre sound quality compared to a dedicated pair of earbuds. Unfortunately, the $199.99 Razer Anzu Smart Glasses fail to change this impression. They look good and their microphones pick up speech clearly, but the audio performance they deliver is just not what it should be for the price. Ultimately, it is better to combine a good pair of headphones with your standard glasses.

The Anzu Smart Glasses look like regular, albeit stylish, glasses or sunglasses (the lenses are interchangeable), at least from the front. The frames are glossy black plastic, available with rectangular or round lens shapes, in small and large sizes to suit any style. When viewed from the front, they appear virtually indistinguishable from traditional eyewear.

Viewed from the side, you can see that the temples thicken considerably, bending outwards before bending backwards up behind your ears. These thicker parts contain the electronics, including down-firing speaker drivers, wireless circuitry and a battery. Contacts for the included patented charger are located on the front of the temples, on the bottom. Small bumps on the outside of the temples in the same position indicate the touch-sensitive controls. You can tap to answer/end calls and play/pause songs, double tap to skip forward and triple tap to go back.

The glasses have an IPX4 rating and are therefore splash-proof, but not completely waterproof. Aside from the charger and two sets of lenses, they come with a leatherette carrying case and a microfiber cleaning cloth. Anzu battery life and app

According to Razer, the Anzu Smart Glasses can last a long time up up to five hours of audio playback. The glasses turn off automatically when folded.

The Razer Audio app for Android and iOS offers some limited customization options. You can reassign each of the tap gestures to different commands, although no volume controls are available. You can also change the equalizer presets between three modes: Standard, Enhanced Brightness, and Treble Boost. That’s about it for audio tweaking. The app can also toggle the low-latency game mode, but this is already controllable on the goggles themselves by tapping the touchscreen three times and then holding it for two seconds. Audio Performance

The glasses use downward-firing drivers that point at your ears when worn, directing sound into them. Since there is nothing but air between the drivers and your ears, you have to take into account certain limitations compared to conventional earphones or headphones. First, the angled drivers require you to wear the goggles close to your face to further direct the sound into your ears. In most cases this is not a problem, but if you place the glasses slightly forward on your nose to prevent fogging when wearing a face mask, the sound volume and quality will decrease noticeably.

There’s also no soundproofing to block out distractions, meaning ambient sounds could potentially interfere with or even obscure what you’re listening to. It’s not a problem for quiet rooms, but loud street noise and surrounding chatter are very easy to hear.

Likewise, sound leakage from the glasses is a risk, meaning anything you listen to can potentially be heard by those around you. That said, because the drivers are so directional and have such a small acoustic range, it’s very hard to choose up everything clear unless you wear the glasses.

Don’t expect much bass here in terms of sound quality. Again, the complete lack of noise isolation and the small, highly directional drivers means almost no low-frequency sound can hit your ears with any noticeable force. In our bass test track, The Knife’s “Silent Shout,” both the bass synth notes and kick drum hits sound like barely there pops, with little to no bass response. The weak bass is especially noticeable outdoors, where any noise can further get in the way of the lower frequencies.

See how we test headphones

Listening in a relatively quiet room, Yes’ “Roundabout” sounds good, but limited. The acoustic tufts in the beginning manage to get a bit of low-mid resonance, though there’s little high-frequency finesse to give a sense of string texture. When the number is dialed correctly up, the bassline and vocals sit at the front of the mix, with the former coming through in steady, poppy notes that stand out a bit, but still don’t produce much power in the lower frequencies. The guitar’s struts and cymbals lean back slightly, with a limited high-frequency response that makes them less present than the mids.

The “Born Too Slow” method of the Crystal method also suffers from similar limitations. The drums, synths and vocals are all squarely in the middle of the mix, with the most presence in the low mids to high mids. The backbeat sounds a bit more poppy than boomy, and doesn’t reach very low, while the riffs don’t cut through the mix as sharply as they usually do.

While the goggles don’t impress with their audio performance, their microphones work very well for phone calls. Test recordings sounded loud, clear, easy to understand despite a bit of Bluetooth artifacts. Audio glasses still don’t work at all

The Razer Anzu Smart Glasses are stylish, with interchangeable lenses and strong microphones, but like other audio-focused glasses we’ve tested, they just don’t sound good enough to justify their price. If you wear glasses that can play music, the Amazon Echo Frames are $20 less and minder feature hands-free Alexa voice support, while the Bose Frames Tempo costs $50 more but sounds the best. Still, we just recommend going à la carte with good wireless or wireless headphones.
