Razer Upgrades Your Stereo Headphones to 7.1 Gaming Surround Sound

Razer has announced the latest member of its software family: Razer Surround.

Razer Surround is a state-of-the-art audio engine that provides 7.1 virtual surround sound with any set of stereo headphones. The current generation of virtual surround technology often provides inaccurate listening experiences because individuals perceive sound differently based on their distinct ear sizes and shapes. As such, virtual surround sound traditionally falls short compared to discrete surround sound setups.

With the patent-pending Razer Surround audio engine, users have the option to calibrate their personal surround sound settings through a series of listening tests to match their preferences, giving them far superior positional sound over traditional virtual solutions. Razer Surround gives gamers a truly individualized 7.1 surround sound and attuned 3D audio experience, allowing them to acoustically pinpoint exact locations of opponents in game, providing “the unfair advantage” in gameplay.

Razer Surround is available as a complementary software add-on, integrated within Razer’s Synapse 2.0 application, offering virtual 7.1 surround sound and storing individual audio signatures in the cloud. These settings can be accessed anytime and will automatically update new systems to previous calibrated settings.

Razer Surround gives gamers an enhanced virtual 7.1 channel surround sound experience with any set of stereo headphones.

Using state-of-the-art technology, the surround sound algorithms powering Razer Surround creates an unbelievably accurate surround sound environment and allows gamers to calibrate positional sound to match their own unique preferences. This level of calibration allows Razer Surround to provide an incredible level of precision in-game, allowing gamers to have the unfair advantage.

Features:

  • Calibrate to your individual preferences
  • Pre-configured calibrations for all Razer Audio products
  • Bass boost - For a thundering bass
  • Sound normalization - Reduce loudness variation
  • Voice clarity - For crystal clear incoming voice communication
  • Voice level - Adjust the level of incoming voice communication
  • Custom & 11 pre-set equalizer settings
  • Works with any stereo headset/headphones
