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.

Summary: The Razer Barracuda HP-1 gaming headphones are a solid surround sound option for PC gaming. The sound quality is fairly good and the overall experience of the eight drivers was, if nothing else, a lot of fun.
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
