Excerpt: Razer , one of the biggest names in the gaming scene. Their gaming mice are considered to be the best or shall I say, the creme de la creme. Razer's newest gaming oriented peripheral is the Ferox which are portable speakers for gaming and music listening. Razer calls these "tiny but mighty", and I can tell you one thing, these are very tiny but are they really mighty? Find out in the full review right after the break.
Excerpt: Okay, we’ll come clean. Technically these speakers are marketed for portable gaming. They’ll actually work with any device with a 3.5mm jack to deliver decent room-filling sound, though, thanks to their 360-degree omnidirectional speakers. More importantly, each speaker can pump out beats for 12 hours straight from the built-in rechargeable batteries.
Conclusion: Inside each Ferox speaker is a 30mm neodymium magnet driver, coupled with the “Expanded Resonance Chamber” and the omni-directional sound, you end up with an exceptional set of mobile speakers. The aforementioned Expanded Resonance Chamber is basically extending the height of the speakers by pushing down on the top part. While closed, the sound is ever so slightly muffled, but the speakers must be closed in order to fit in the carry pouch.
Conclusion: In our rating, factors like performance, value, quality, features and innovation are taken into consideration in order to assess the overall quality of the item. Performance of this item was fairly impressive in comparison to the size of the speaker, but does lack in quality in comparison to a larger driver speakers. As we noted in the very beginning the quality of the sound is overall very likely to decline with the decrease in the speaker driver.
Summary: The new Ferox portable speakers from Razer are ideal for both normal users that want to get a better sound out of their laptop or gamers that are mostly on the go. The sound that these speakers deliver is clear even at high volumes, but they lack a good bass reproduction. The internal rechargeable batteries allow them to be used for about 12 hours and they can be also used while recharging.

25 July 2011
Summary: One of the largest 3rd-party peripheral manufacturers in the game, Razer has built a reputation for stylish products that improve both our performance in games and the overall experience outside of them. Razer's Ferox is a compact speaker system that you can take with you wherever you go.
Pros: Compact, rechargeable power source, decent sound for the size
Cons: Bass response is weak, really only appropriate for portable applications, proprietary cord
Conclusion: At the end of the day, don’t expect the Razer Ferox to completely replace your 5.1 desktop speakers or a high-end gaming headset like the Razer Megalodon .
Pros: Brilliant design, sleek looking, Tiny in size, yet powerful, Loud, clear, good audio quality, Up to 12 hours on-battery, Rechargeable battery, Can be used while recharged via USB, Carrying case included, Can be hooked to portable media devices
Cons: Bass is not powerful despite of the tech spec, Shouldn’t be treated to replace your desktop system
Summary: Hvad kan så konkluderes ud fra dette? Der kan i hvert fald, som det første, siges at dette på ingen måde kan agerer substitut for dit normale anlæg. Det spiller de hverken godt nok, eller højt nok til. Men de kan, uden tvivl give dig en bedre lydoplevelse, end din bærbare computer eller smartphone kan leverer.
Pros: • Små og handy, • Størrelsen taget i betragtning, leverer de god lyd, • Batterilevetiden
Cons: • Havde de droppet kegleformen, og brugt en cylinderform i stedet, havde der været plads til en større enhed = lidt dybere lyd., • Kablet er for kort, • Relativt høj pris
