What you need to know

  • Razer has announced a new version of its Zephyr mask, the Razer Zephyr Pro.
  • The Zephyr Pro comes with everything that made the original Zephyr great, while also offering a voice amplifier feature.
  • The Razer Zephyr Pro is expected to cost over $150 and arrive later in 2022.

With the pandemic showing no signs of ending in 2022, it's crucial that plenty of quality protective masks are available so that people can use them to protect both themselves and others. Gaming-focused hardware manufacturer Razer aimed to contribute by launching the Razer Zephyr mask in 2021, which features N95 filters, two-way protection, a pair of air exchange chambers, two-way fans for cooling, and a transparent design with integrated LED lighting that allows others to see the wearer's facial expressions. There's customizable Chroma RGB lighting, too, if you're into that.

At CES 2022, Razer announced a new version of the Zephyr — the Razer Zephyr Pro — that adds voice amplification technology to the mask. This feature will help combat situations in which the mask muffles your voice, as the voice amplification will make it loud and clear.

It's unclear when the Zephyr Pro will become available, but we do know it will cost $150. We expect that the Zephyr Pro will launch later in 2022, similar to how the Zephyr did in October 2021. If it's as good as the standard Zephyr, it will no doubt be one of the best accessories for laptop owners (as well as for everyone else) to wear while out and about.
