The Hypersense haptic feedback creates audio realism for in-game immersion and positional accuracy with THX Spatial surround sound. The auto-adjusting headband adapts to the shape of your head. Has cooling gel to reduce heat build up.

The haptic feedback is the most interesting feature on this headset, and it's probably the one you're most curious about. Razer's Hypersense feature is designed to fully immerse you in whatever game you're playing. The haptic feedback means you're getting more than just audio in your ears, you're feeling the audio through vibrations. When you're low on health and that heartbeat sound is thumping in your ears, you'll feel just how close you are to starting over.

More than that, though, the headset also has audio realism. Get positional accuracy so you know where that tank shell vibrating in your ears landed or when your enemies are sneaking up on you from behind. You can use the THX Spatial audio to get 7.1 surround sound.

The headset is lightweight and automatically adjusts to you. The headband will shape itself to your skull so it's always comfortable and will last for a long time. It also has a retractable mic that you can tune for a solid balance between your team's chat and the game's audio. It has built-in tools for adjusting the volume or muting the mic altogether.

This headset is compatible with pretty much any platform, including Xbox and PlayStation and your PC if you connect via the 3.5mm cable. If you go wireless, it will work with Windows 7 or newer and the PlayStation.
