SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, announced the Razer Nari Ultimate wireless gaming headset with Razer HyperSense, featuring advanced haptics to deliver a deeper immersive experience for gaming, movies and music.
Razer HyperSense features haptics by Lofelt™, a leading German technology company that specializes in creating intelligent haptics for immersive, natural tactile experiences.
"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." said Daniel Büttner, chief executive officer at Lofelt. "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 realizing the true potential of advanced haptics and can't wait for gamers to level up their gameplay with the Razer Nari Ultimate featuring haptics by Lofelt."
Razer HyperSense utilizes special haptic drivers that generate multidimensional haptic feedback, featuring stereo capabilities for enhanced positional awareness. 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, swiveling ear cups to fit every head shape, and cooling gel ear cushions that keep gamers feeling cooler for longer 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 utilizes 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."
The Razer Nari is available in three versions: Razer Nari Ultimate, Nari, and Nari Essential. The Razer Nari Ultimate described above delivers the most gaming audio value for gamers at $199.99. The Razer Nari at $149 omits Razer HyperSense while mirroring the Razer Nari Ultimate in comfort, sound technology and all other features. The Razer Nari Essential focuses on core wireless gaming headset features with THX Spatial Audio, comfort with an auto adjusting headband, and cooling gel ear cushions and lag-free performance at $99.99.
