    Razer, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, software and systems, today announced the Razer Adaro series, a new line of headphones designed for personal entertainment. The new audio lineup will initially feature four models: bass-heavy earphones, analog stereo headphones, Bluetooth headphones and DJ-style headphones. Each member of the Razer Adaro family is designed with a heavy focus on durability, comfort and uncompromised sound quality for music listening.

    The Razer Adaro series marks the company's latest venture into the personal entertainment audio space. The Razer Kraken and Electra, two of Razer's best-selling headphones, were tuned for music, as well as gaming.

    "Making technically advanced headsets to meet the extraordinary requirements of professional gamers has been a primary focus for us for years, and applying that competency to the development of headphones designed for music lovers is a natural extension for the business and our fans," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. "For some time now, we've been asked to come out with a line of headphones that addresses the other interests of our community. The Razer Adaro lineup offers just that: high-quality, portable audio for kicking-back, traveling and training, and even for making music."

    And so it starts...everyone and their neighbor's dog coming out with csr8645 (BT4.0/aptx) and 8670 (if you like that capacitive earpiece-swiping nonsense or think you need more than 2 mics) cans. This really should have happened last year, at least to greater extent than it did, but happy it's upon us. $150 msrp is a fairly decent price if those don't suck for sound/construction quality and are comfortable, and I think it sets a nice benchmark for others to compete.

    Yaayyyyyy. I really wonder what will rise to the top in each price segment/style/driver size after CES. It really should be exciting for those that give a crap about wireless headphones, as it should bring better prices and variety to a market I think far too few take advantage because of past issues (with sound/material quality or battery life). Judging by the fact that portable (bluetooth) speakers and 'premium' (>$100) headphones are two of the largest growth markets of last year in electronics, I think that's going to change.

    I have a set of Razors and for gaming and movies they are great. Nice bass and highs. Where mine fall short are mids so they suck for music. Of course that might be my fault. My hearing isn't what you call great. To many years of being a "BAD ASS" and not wearing ear plugs at the range has cost me. Wish I could go back in time and slap myself. So I won't blame Razor for that. IMO so far also their construction is good. I've had better sounding headphones but they never last with my big head and meat paws.

    Wish these companies would just focus on making accurate sound and leave the "making the sound AWESOME" to the companies developing the sound.

    Cool headphones you might say but overpriced for just a tad bit. The design also is not that quite elegant unlike the Adaro DJs for example.
