Razer reveals aviation-inspired BlackShark gaming headset

updated 01:48 pm EDT, Fri August 31, 2012

Razer-branded version of Battlefield 3 headset released earlier

Razer is bringing out another gaming headset, this time inspired by aviation. A stark contrast from the Kraken Pro Gaming Headset launched two weeks ago, the BlackShark Stereo Gaming Headset is designed to look like headphones worn by military helicopter pilots. A version of the headset designed from the ground up for Battlefield 3 was released during E3, with this edition losing the game-related branding.

The full circumaural ear cups are built with memory foam ear cushions for comfort and optimum sound isolation, and house the 40mm neodymium drivers with copper-clad aluminium voice coils. The added microphone boom can be detached, allowing the headset to be used in non-gaming applications such as in transit. A splitter cable separating audio and the microphone is also included.

The company hopes to start shipping the BlackShark in September for $120.
