Razer Introduces the Tetra Headset

Razer today released the Razer Tetra, an ultra-lightweight chat headset with pro-grade microphone for crystal-clear team communication on all platforms including PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and mobile devices.

The Razer Tetra is a single-ear console chat headset, designed for gamers wishing to enjoy their home audio set-up but still communicate with their teammates. Lots of gamers have an extensive surround sound speaker system set-up to enjoy immersive movie and game audio, and while many use a headset for game sound and communications, some prefer the big sound experience from their media systems. With today's multiplayer games, communication with teammates is key. The Razer Tetra delivers crystal-clear communications even in the loudest of audio set-ups. The cardioid microphone is tuned for a focused voice-pickup range, reducing ambient noises from the sides and back, giving superior voice clarity over traditional chat headsets. An in-line volume control gives gamers full access to all important settings during the battle at the touch of a finger, with a volume slider and mic-mute function to tune the audio during play.
Designed for long play-sessions, the Razer Tetra weighs in at a svelte 70 g, ideal for hours of comfortable, uninterrupted gameplay. With a reversible design, the microphone and ear-piece can be worn on either side of the head, for full comfort and flexibility. An adjustable headband slider allows the perfect fit, avoiding annoying head-clamping and ear pressure, backed up by plush leatherette ear cushions paired with soft foam. Featuring a 3.5 mm jack connection, the Razer Tetra is compatible with Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch as well as PC and mobile devices. The Razer Tetra will also be available in a dedicated PS4 version (EU only).

The only product ive ever been super happy with when it comes to razor would be the razor blackshark headphones. Those things were the best. Cut me off from the outside world, mic was great, audio was great. I had to replace them though because the faux leather ripped on both ears. And it's 3.5mm

Looks like the cheap ass $12 headsets that my last place of work used. They sucked and you got what you paid for.

If you want something cheap (though it's probably horribly overpriced) and breaks easily, look no further!

Looked up on razer.com (https://www.razer.com/gaming-audio/razer-tetra) and they're priced at $29.99. I wouldn't waste $30 on something that looks exactly like the headset from a tech-support call center.


When I first started working there, the headset they gave me was broken. The mic wouldn't stay up by my mouth and kept dropping down and the lock to keep the adjustable slider in place for the head peice was broken and the damn thing would just slide off my ear. I tried using it for about 30 minutes and finally asked the manager for a different one. She said these headsets were very expensive and to take better care of them (seriously? 30 minutes into the job and the busted POS I was given she's implying I broke it). Anyway, she gave me a brand new in the package headset. Cheap piece of crap it looked like, I looked up the part# online and you could by them for around $12....she tried telling me they were almost $100.

^^ A cheap phone headset is actually how I'd be most likely to use it, hopefully better quality than the $12 models you mentioned.

Oh yeah! An inline control that breaks and turns mono both channels into mono one channel for that ultimate screaching in everyones left ear!

Get a Sennheiser PC 2 CHAT instead, costs half, does the same.

Razer products with very low durability? no that's not possible! .........
