Razer’s Barracuda X offers excellent connectivity for multi-platform gamers, a tasteful and subtle design and admirable wireless sound quality. The microphone requires a little fiddling to get the best quality, and Xbox gamers will have to grab a cable to play along. Still, the lightweight Barracuda X offers excellent quality and flexibility for its price range.
Razer’s Barracuda X wireless gaming headset nails it in the areas of comfort, style and flexibility. With its USB-C wireless dongle, it works equally well with a PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 (PS5) / PS4 and Android phone. The option to use a detachable 3.5mm cable means it’s useful on other devices too. Critically, it offers excellent audio quality for a headset in its price range and across the spectrum of compatible devices.
At $100 (as of writing), the cans look to compete with the best gaming headsets with a long battery life and versatility. But if you’re after supreme virtual surround sound or don’t want to have to worry about your mic’s location when barking orders on the battlefield, you may want to reconsider.
