Razer Hammerhead Pro
Ø9mm Dynamic Driver

Razer's Hammerhead Pro are great earphones, both in sound and build quality, but they need more bass and slightly less highs to perfect them.

Pros
Cons
  • A great clearity and sibilance.
  • The build quality is superb. That soft rubber cable is the perfect cable, after a soft braided cable, of course.
  • The packaging is the perfect presentation for earphones.
  • The bass needs to be more emphasized, as its lack also negatively affects the mids.
  • Sibilance is so high that it could cause fatigue and a headache.

Comfort & Fit

The only tips I could fit to my ears are the pre-applied double flange tips, which come in M size only. But even with them, it doesn't feel firm enough.

Lows / Bass

The bass is there, but it could be more emphasized, maybe that would warm up the painfully loud highs.

Mids / Vocals

The lack of proper bass levels, the mids are missing some very needed depth, and are just loud but not deep enough. It's especially noticeable with male vocals.

Highs / Treble

The highs are very crisp, but also too loud, and are usually painful to listen to.
