Razer Moray In-Ear Monitors
Gamers worldwide know Razer for its gaming laptops, consoles, keyboards and more. Last year it rolled out new gear for streamers. And on Tuesday it ventured into new territory with the release of Razer Moray, its first IEM for both gamers’ and streamers’ “marathon sessions.”
“The launch of the Moray marks an exciting new chapter for Razer,” said Alvin Cheung, senior vice president of Razer Hardware. “It’s an evolution in gaming audio, designed to offer streamers high-definition sound and all-day comfort.”
“With the Razer Moray, we’re bringing the exceptional audio quality typically associated with in-ear monitors to not only streamers, but gamers as well,” he continued. “And we’re proud to announce this product has earned the coveted global gold standard mark of audio fidelity, THX Certification.”
THX Certified with hybrid dual driver
Razer noted THX Certification is a “globally recognized assurance of quality, consistency, and performance.”
Here’s how it described Razer Moray audio:
Tested and optimized by leading audio experts, the Moray delivers clear vocals and dialogue, a distortion-free experience, and superior noise isolation, ensuring the highest standards of audio for both gaming and streaming. This certification assures listeners that right out of the box, the Moray delivers the artist’s true vision, blending art, technology and the dynamics of real-world listening environments.
Moray features a hybrid dual-driver acoustic design. It pairs a balanced-armature driver for clear trebles with a dynamic driver for rich bass, the company added.
Ergonomically designed for comfort
Razer also claimed Moray’s low-profile, ergonomic shape “offers a snug fit that significantly surpasses traditional headsets, eliminating pressure on the head and ears to deliver a seamless, fatigue-free streaming experience.”
The company said the IEM passive noise isolation that can block up to 36 decibels of noise, cutting down on distractions.
