LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA | Razer recently announced the Razer Thresher Ultimate wireless headsets for Xbox One, PlayStation 4. They will be offering versions for both the PS4 and the Xbox gaming systems, with a color scheme to match those consoles trademark colors.

The Thresher Ultimate delivers wireless Dolby 7.1 surround sound for the most immersive audio experience possible on console. The headset is capable of the highest audio bandwidth on console, delivering the highest highs and the lowest lows.

Its large 50 mm drivers pump directional audio into each leatherette ear cup, cushioned with memory foam for state-of-the-art comfort, sound quality and noise isolation. Also available are cooling-gel infused ear cushions designed for even longer hours of comfortable gameplay.

“We are taking our expertise in designing the very best PC gaming hardware into the console arena,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “These are the most reliable and best-sounding wireless console headsets ever made.”
