Razer Ifrit Headset Review




    The SM4RT T3CH Product of the day for 7/27/2020 is a great headset from Razer called the Ifrit. The headset utilizes earbuds and a comfortable neck band to keep it in place. The built in microphone has excellent clarity and reduces background noise. The headset plugs into your PC with a usb adapter that allows for a second microphone input for audio splitting, mixing, or even for interviews.

    This headset is primarily aimed at gamers/broadcasters, however, I currently use this headset for working from home. As a remote worker, conference calls are the new norm and zoom meetings haunt everyone's dreams. I struggled with clear audio for the meetings I run and attend, probably due to my ancient Logitech headset from 7 years ago. Upgrading to the Ifrit was seamless and easy. Just a simple USB plug and a single audio cable. Quality is much better and the external audio controller with a physical mute button is a nice to have.

    If you are in the market for a better headset/mic combo for work or gaming, this is a good choice. The price is higher than a standard gaming headset but the microphone quality easily makes up for that difference. I have a Razer Kraken headset and it's mic doesn't even compare to the Ifrit. The sound quality from the earbuds are fantastic as well. They lack a bit on the lower end but this isn't an expensive pair of audiophile-level headphones either. Music sounds good and voices in meetings are clear too.

    The one con I can see with the design is the neckband could be uncomfortable for some depending on size of your head, glasses wearers, etc. I however, have no issue wearing it with my blue light blocking glasses and a hat at the same time. It is comfortable for long sessions and is super light. I would recommend using caution when taking the earbuds off/on due to the cables being rather thin.

    Overall, the Ifrit sounds good and is a very low-key alternative to a big, over the ear headset. The mic quality is great and the setup is easy. A great win for anyone looking to up their Zoom meeting game. The Ifrit is available from Amazon with two day shipping to most of the country.
