The new Razer Thresher Ultimate wireless headsets offer Dolby 7.1 surround sound

Both models will also be PC compatible.

Razer is adding to its growing gaming headset line with the Thresher Ultimate, a high-dollar option with distinct models for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 that differ in color. The Thresher Ultimate delivers wireless Dolby 7.1 surround sound for the most immersive audio experience possible on console.

Razer has a well-earned reputation among PC players for making some of the best gaming peripherals out there, as it boasts one of the best gaming laptops in the business. Razer estimates the battery life to be up to 16 hours, with a 4 hour charging time. And in a nice touch, the ear cushions have indentations to make them more comfortable for users with glasses, in a first for Razer's over-ear headphones. As you'd expect, these also help to cancel out any residual noise coming from the room around you, giving you a way to avoid loud interruptions from a passing siren or next-door neighbor and focus on the gaming in front of you. The base station connects to the console over an optical audio connection. In each leatherette ear cup, large 50mm drivers will pump directional audio as the cups are cushioned with memory foam for state-of-the-art comfort. The left ear cup features a retractable omnidirectional microphone.

The Thresher Ultimate is available for pre-order now for $249.99 Dollars, and will be available worldwide in July. The PS4 version works with PS4 and PS4 Pro and the Xbox One version works with Xbox One, One S and One X. As mentioned before, either version works with PC so you can choose whether you want it in green or blue if you are buying for the PC.
