The guys at Razer must never rest, constantly coming out with new high quality gaming supplies. This time, they graced yours truly with a pair of their brand new Barracuda HP-1 Gaming Headphones.
Actually, they must have been reading my mind. My gaming headphones had disappeared, and I was thinking about getting some new ones (though I probably wouldn't have gotten something this nice).
The headphones are packaged in a very attractive box with the black and green Razer motif inside of a blister pack. They are part of the Barracuda Integrated Audio System (IAS), which consists of the HP-1 headphones and the AC-1 Gaming Soundcard. The soundcard is not quite ready for release, but hopefully they will soon will allow me to give you a review of the whole system. The headphones, though designed to be used with the AC-1 to get "the best gaming audio experience in the world today", can also be used with any soundcard, either integrated in the motherboard or PCI.
