Razer is taking its new ‘life-style’ branding very severely, it appears. Contemporary off the again of its Mission Hazel face masks, the corporate has introduced its first ever pair of glasses: Razer Anzu.
Obtainable in two totally different types, Razer Anzu brings both blue mild safety for indoors or UVA/UVB safety for open air in a pair of surprisingly tame glasses for an organization famed for including RGB to all the pieces. However wait, there’s extra. That may be the onboard audio system with contact controls—constructed proper into the specs themselves.
The open-ear audio design is powered by an omnidirectional microphone and 16mm drivers constructed proper into the body, which Razer says are “almost imperceivable” on the in any other case slightly normal face fare. In the event that they’re something just like the open-ear audio system on the Valve Index then we might be very into this concept. If they are not, nicely, we’re simply going to have to seek out out aren’t we?
Intensive benchmarking is clearly required.
This audio operate is managed by way of contact controls on the outer body of the glasses, which affords play, pause, skip, and activate smartphone assistant performance. That is all related to your gadget by way of Bluetooth.
There’s additionally an “Activate gaming mode” possibility, which is both some gaming particular EQ (additionally controllable by way of an Android and iOS app), or a mode that renders the world in The Matrix-style code in entrance of your very eyeballs.
Razer say it ought to last as long as 5 hours with the interior battery, after which you may have to cost it up with the included USB cable.
The lenses are interchangeable for both indoor or outside use, and the Anzu can be splashproof, as much as IPX4. You will not need to get them soaked within the rain, nevertheless.
Notice: no RGB lighting this time. Razer found out a technique to get LEDs onto a face masks however these sensible glasses? No, that is one step too far.
I could not agree extra, both.
The Razer Anzu Sensible Glasses may be yours from immediately for $200 (£200, €210). So they do not come low cost, however sun shades hardly do.
