The Razer Nari Ultimate wireless gaming headset has a secret weapon. It’s the first — and as far as I know, still the only — audio gear with built-in haptic drivers. What does that mean? This headset doesn’t simply reproduce sound when you’re playing games. It also vibrates, which adds an extra level of immersion as well as giving you positional cues in the 3D space around you. (Though I’m not 100% sold on the idea, so I should point out that you can turn this feature off.) The Nari Ultimate lists for about $200 and is currently selling for $150 on Amazon. But right now, Daily Steals is offering. Just apply promo code CNETRZNR at checkout.
I’m definitely intrigued by this deal. While I wouldn’t have bought the Nari Ultimate for $200 or even $170, when you get down to around $90, we’ve entered plausible splurge territory. It’s more than half off the list price and a solid $56 off.
Haptics aside, these headphones look to be solid audio gear. CNET took a gaming headphones.a few years ago and complimented the comfort and sound quality, while pointing out that it comes with THX spatial audio, another solid selling point for wireless
That said, the haptic capabilities have proven to be divisive, with some folks clearly not a fan of the concept. What do you think: haptic feedback? Around your ears? I’m genuinely curious to know if you want to try out the Nari Ultimate or worry that the haptic feature would soon wear out its welcome. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
