Review: Razer Adaro Wireless
Editor’s Note: We reviewed the Razer Adaro Wireless and we think it’s a pretty neat piece of headphone to own.
Razer peripherals have gained popularity among gamers worldwide. This time around, Razer went back to the drawing board, focusing on products that enhance users’ lifestyles. Razer decided on three criteria to be incorporated in the Razer Adaro series – durability for everyday use, comfort and uncompromising audio. The Razer Adaro series consists of the Adaro In-Ear analog earphones, Adaro Stereo analog headphones, Adaro Wireless bluetooth headphones and Adaro DJ analog DJ headphones. We will be reviewing the Adaro Wireless Bluetooth Headphones in this post.
The Adaro Wireless comes in a nifty packaging like all Razer products do. Unboxing it reveals the Adaro Wireless and a micro-USB to USB charging cable. It is super lightweight, weighing a mere 197 gram and takes 2.5 hours to fully charge the unit. Standby time is 300 hours. The Adaro Wireless comes equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity with aptX technology for hassle-free wireless connection and ultra-low power consumption. The aptX codec standard ensures audio content is of CD-quality audio. Drivers used are custom-tuned 40mm Neodynium Magnets. This pair of headphones has a frequency response of 20 to 20kHz and an impedance of 32 Ohms at 1kHz similar to the Kraken Forged.
In the aspect of comfort, the Adaro Wireless uses comfortable plush leatherette ear cushions paired together with the lightness of the earphone; you can barely feel the weight on your head. The diameter of the ear cup measures 5cm and fits my ears nicely. However, someone with slightly larger ears would find wearing the headphones a little less comfortable. You can adjust the headband by sliding the ear cups up and down the slider.
The power button, volume control and charging port are located on the left-hand side of the ear cup. Powering the device on requires depressing the button for three seconds. The LED light located right above the power switch will start blinking red and blue alternatively. When the Adaro is connected to a device, the LED light will flash blue five times when it successfully connects to a device. You will then hear a voice message “Your device is connected”. When the device is being powered off you will hear another voice message saying “Goodbye” with two red flashes on LED.
The LED indicator also tells you the nature of your device. When its charging, the LED light will be solid red and when fully charged the light will be off. Two red flashes every three seconds indicate battery is depleting. Two red or blue flashes every three seconds indicates the device is in use and one blue flash every five seconds indicates standby mode.
The Adaro Wireless has an operating distance of up to 10 meters which means you can go around your room or out of your room and still be connected as long as you are in range. Though the headphones are comfortable to put on for long hours, it will heat up after some time of use, a good indicator to give your ears a good rest before proceeding with your music blasting feat.
The Adaro Wireless works well with music of every genre and is especially good to pair it with heavy bass music. The metal Razer logo design embossed on the side of the ear cups adds on points to the design aesthetics. Its also small enough to carry it around in your handbag or put it on during a workout. If you are looking for a pair of no-strings-attach headphones for every music genre, you should give this pair a try.
