Sony wh-1000 series have amazing noice cancelation and music quality. These razor look like sony design. I'll go definitely for sony :)
with 50$ more you get Surface Headphone 2 which you can use wireless/wired, 13 steps noise cancelling and touch control.
imparanoic, 21 May 2020the H1 chip in the second-generation AirPods and airpods pro supports Bluetooth 5.0 which has ... moreWrong. BT5 doesn't guarantee or mean high bit rates.
All apple products support only AAC, just 1 grade better than SBC codec. Apt X is better than AAC, and this Opus supports it.
imparanoic, 20 May 2020shame, no high bitrate wireless audio, only bluetooth 4.2 which uses same bitrate as 20 year ... moreI read on other website this Opus supports Apt X. Should be pretty good sound quality for USD200 headphones.
The Sony 1000XM2 and XM3 supports the better LDAC, but they are not USD200.
Geralb, 20 May 2020No aptx hd wtf?! Whom ever wrote this article missed the APTx. It's on the website

Without that gamery RGB accent, this might be good decision, although with thatdesign plus cheap looking semi-gloss plastic body makes it looks like another cheap Sony knockoff headphone.
Thank you for the good design Razer. It's a major step in the right direction.
looks almost identical to Sony's WH-1000 series, but without support for higher quality codecs. just buy a pair of Sonys instead, doesn't have to be the newest model
Anonymous, 20 May 2020Why only BT4.2? 5.0 has been out long enough.Well, there's the Sony XM4's to look forward to. However the Razer might just offer better call quality because they're garbage on the XM3, especially the Bluetooth protocol used which for some reason has a separate profile for calls.
