Razer Barracuda HP-1 Gaming Headphones

6 December 2007
  • Summary: While this was Razer's first attempt at creating gaming headphones, let alone any audio products, they certainly put their best foot forward with the Barracuda HP-1. From the build quality to the audio performance, the Razer Barracuda HP-1 was able to satisfy our tastes in every form. Even after wearing the headphones for hours, we had run into no issues of the Barracuda HP-1 becoming uncomfortable or any other issues.

  • Summary: Before I even laid my hands on the headset, I was rather skeptical that a headset could provide true 5.1 sound. Although I knew it was a razer product, and I have yet to be disappointed by one of their products, I was still worried. Now I can say again that I am not disappointed by razer’s products. When listening to music on the RazerBarracuda HP-1, I felt myself slip away and emerge into a state of tranquility.

Razer Barracuda HP-1 Gaming Headphones

9 May 2006
  • Summary: While we were not able to test both the Barracuda AC-1 Gaming Audio Card in conjunction with the Barracuda HP-1 Gaming Headphones, our experience was still excellent with our analog sound card. Razer's digital solution promises even more sonic purity with both audio components used together, however the HP-1 Gaming Headphones perform excellent with our on-board audio sub-system of the motherboard we tested.
  • Pros: Excellent Design, Excellent Surround Reproduction, Lightweight for it's Class, Unique and Innovative Features, Easy Installation and Setup, Can be used right out of the Box, No Software Required, Craftsmanship
  • Cons: A bit Pricey

  • Cons: Tinny high notes

Razer Barracuda™ HP-1 5.1 Channel Gaming Headset

25 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Das Razer Barracuda™ HP-1 5.1 Channel Gaming Headset verlässt unseren Testparcour mit gemischten Gefühlen. Zum einen ist es ohne Mängel Qualitativ hochwertig hergestellt worden und zum anderen zeigt es sehr gute Sound Ausgangsqualitäten. Die Soundqualität ist als überragend bis Weltklasse zu bezeichnen. Der Tragekomfort ist sehr bequem, da sich das elastische Gummi an die Kopfform anpasst. Nachteilig und leider mit Mängeln behaftet ist das Sendeschwache Mikrofon.
  • Pros: Verarbeitungsqualität, Gute Soundausgangsqualität, Tragekomfort, Design, Lieferumfang, Beleuchtetes Logo
  • Cons: Mikrofon, Preis
