Razer Updates Carcharias Headset with Xbox 360 Support
05/12/2012 | Nicholas Griffin
Razer have just announced the release of its Razer Carcharias gaming headset which has been tailored to work with the Xbox 360.
The headset which was previously only compatible with the PC, has been designed with the same sort of specs and design as the previous version with full over-ear coverage, a fully adjustable padded head rail and superior sound quality.
The Carcharias has also been amplified for even richer and more powerful sound, with the new inline remote control you can now adjust bass and voice levels on the go, which can be adjusted alongside the game volume.
The new and improved Razer Carcharias will be available on Razerzone.com from today for $69.99 (US) or €69.99 in Europe, there’s no UK pricing just yet (as we know) but I would expect £69.99 judging by the rest of the pricing.
