Heads up! Gaming hardware manufacturer Razer has just announced the Opus, a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones priced at S$300.

Sporting THX certification (Razer owns THX, after all), the Opus also features twin 40mm dynamic drivers and supports active noise cancellation (ANC). Calling it hybrid ANC, it uses two microphones on each earcup (one internal, one external) to more effectively cancel out noise.

If you want to hear the surroundings without taking off the circumaural cans, you can press and hold the ANC button turn on Quick Attention mode to let in more noise.

Regarding construction, Razer says the 265g Opus uses ‘plush leatherette memory foam ear cushions’ and offers a ‘well-balanced weight and snug clamping force’ so that you can use it comfortably over an extended period of time. Audio also automatically pauses and resumes when you remove the headphones and put them back on your ears.

Finally, the Razer Opus has a rated battery life of up to 25 hours, but it’s unclear whether that’s with or without ANC. The Opus can also double as a pair of wired headphones via the onboard 3.5mm jack; and Razer has thoughtfully included an airplane adapter and carry case in the package.
