Razer’s Ifrit headset is more concerned with streaming than gamingSeptember 21, 2018
Razer’s Ifrit is a new headset from the gaming brand that ditches the standard over-ear headphones for a pair of earbuds, which it combines with an arm-mounted microphone. The result is a more lightweight device that shouldn’t obscure your face as you stream – even if the condenser mic is still pretty chunky.
The Ifrit is natively compatible with the Xbox One and PC via its 3.5mm jack. If you want to use the headset with a PS4, you’ll need to use the included Razer USB Audio Enhancer to connect it to a spare USB port. This USB converter can also be used with the PC, where it can be used to plug two headsets into one machine. Given Razer’s pitch about the Ifrit being ideal for mobile broadcasting, it’s a shame to not see a USB Type-C adapter, especially given how many phones (including the Razer Phone) are ditching the analog headphone jack.
The Razer Ifrit is available worldwide now for $99.99 if you fancy slimming down your Twitch streaming setup. The USB Audio Enhancer is available to be purchased separately for $19.99 if you want to convert a separate 3.5mm headset to USB.
