SAN FRANCISCO – Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, announced the Razer Nari Ultimate wireless gaming headset with Razer HyperSense, an advanced haptic technology that delivers an added dimension of touch to gaming, movie and music experiences.
Razer HyperSense was developed together with Lofelt, a German engineering firm that specialises in creating haptic technologies for immersive, natural, lifelike experiences.
Chief Executive Officer of Lofelt, Daniel Buttner said:
“Lofelt is committed to raising the standard for haptic feedback to match the high-quality audio and video we’re used to in today’s devices. Teaming up with Razer is an incredible opportunity for us to demonstrate the value of the cutting-edge technology we developed. I’m thrilled we are at the forefront of realising the true potential of advanced haptics and can’t wait for gamers to level up their gameplay with the Razer Nari Ultimate featuring Lofelt’s haptic technology.”
Razer HyperSense utilises haptic drivers that generate multidimensional haptic feedback, enhancing positional awareness with stereo capabilities. The technology works across all formats of gaming, music and movies without specific integration by converting audio signals into tactile feedback in real time.
The Nari Ultimate was also engineered with innovative comfort technology that includes an auto-adjusting headband for a fuss-free fit, swivelling ear cups to fit every head shape and cooling gel ear cushions that keep gamers feeling cooler for more extended periods of time compared to traditional memory foam ear cups. The cooling gel ear cushions feature hidden indented eyewear channels for a more comfortable fit with eyewear, as well.
The Razer Nari Ultimate also utilises THX Spatial Audio which was introduced with the Kraken Tournament Edition. This feature creates realistic depth and immersion by simulating 360- degree sound with pinpoint accuracy for greater awareness during gameplay. The headset has game/chat balance, and it works in both wired and wireless mode for added compatibility across PC, Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan said:
“Razer consistently creates products with innovative technology to give gamers the best gaming experience possible. With the Razer Nari Ultimate, we are championing a whole new way for gamers to feel their games through Razer HyperSense.”
