Tech Review: Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds (Quartz Version)

It’s been a little while since I’ve done a tech review, but felt it was time to write down my thoughts about the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds. I’ve had these for around three months now and absolutely love them! I had been on the fence about getting a pair of wireless headphones for a while, but just couldn’t part with my trust old Happy Plugs headphones that I had been using for several years.

I actually saw the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds advertised on Facebook one evening, and they happened to be on sale at the time, too. I mention them in passing to my partner, who then secretly ordered them for me as a surprise and to replace my slowly breaking headphones. You can only imagine how surprised I was when I answered the door to the delivery courier and then spotting that the package said Razer on them.

From the Razer website, the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds are described to have low latency connection, are water resistant, and you can custom-tune the 13mm drivers.

Here’s the full technical specifications from Razer’s website!

I use these earbuds on pretty much a daily basis. Whether I’m walking to or from work, on my break, when I’m out and about or just in the evening if I’m watching something on my iPad.

The box that the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds comes with has everything that you need. It contains the earbuds themselves, a charging/carry case, USB-C charging lead, optional strap for the charging/carry case as well as the instructions and of course a couple of stickers!

When they first arrived, they were incredibly easy to pair with my phone. I simply downloaded the Razer Audio app, paired them with my Bluetooth, and I was set. They did come partially charger and after checking that they worked all okay, I gave them a good first charge. Even though the earbuds inform you when they are getting low on power, having the Razer Audio app to check the remaining battery life and change any sound settings in the Equalizer.

While I’ve mentioned the Razer Audio app, you can also turn on Game Mode and also remap the touch controls of the earbuds.

I’ll be honest, I forget about the touch controls so often, but they do come in handy when you don’t want to get your phone out of your pocket or have your hands full.

I would have to say that I use my earbuds for at about two hours every day. By the time I’ve walked to and from work and while on my break, that seems about right. Some days it’s more and some days it’s less. As the case does recharge the earbuds while they are not being used, I only really plug them in around once a week using the USB Charger.

As I mentioned at the start, I’ve been using the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds for about three months though, and I have to say I love them. I love the Pink Quartz colour, they are incredibly easy to use, battery life is brilliant and the sound quality for me is spot on. Having the option to make changes if needed is great although, as I’ve mentioned earlier in this post, I haven’t really used the touch controls much, but they have come in handy on a few occasions.

I can’t truly comment on the price as such, since these were gifted to me, but they seem to be along the same line as many other wireless headphones that are available out there. Currently, the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds are retailing at $99.99 on the Razer Store.

Compared to my old Happy Plugs headphones, there is definitely a difference in quality sound wise and overall. Everything sounds so much clearer and crisps regardless of if I’m listening to music or a podcast when I’m out and about.

If you are considering purchasing wireless earphones, whether it is your first pair or a replacement pair, I would definitely recommend checking out the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds as a possible option!

The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds can be purchased from the Razer Store here. They are currently available in Black, Mercury (White) and Quartz.
