For any real Pokémon fans out there, Razer has some really exciting news for you. The renowned global gaming hardware manufacturing company Razer Inc. is now giving all Pokémon fans a “one-in-a-lifetime” opportunity for them to show their real love for both music and the Japanese Pocket Monsters media franchise by letting them get their hands on a pair of its super limited special edition earphones, the brand-new Razer Pokémon Pikachu True Wireless Headphones.
Basically, Razer’s Pikachu True Wireless Headphones limited edition are simply the company’s recently announced Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds coated in yellow, and instead of coming stamped with Razer’s triple-headed snake logo on the touchpad, that same logo is replaced by Pikachu’s cute silhouette/backside.
Let’s take a more detailed look at Razer’s special edition of Pikachu wireless headphones and check everything that these earbuds have to offer.
DESIGN & SPECS
As mentioned before, the Razer Pokémon Pikachu True Wireless Headphones feature a complete yellow body with Pikachu’s backside silhouette stamped on each of the earbuds’ touchpads.
The Pikachu True Wireless Headphones feature a IPX4 water resistance design that makes them ideal for any Pokémon fans with an active lifestyle, allowing users to work out to their favorite tunes during gym sessions, free-running and jogging sessions, or any other outdoor activities that you can think of.
Furthermore, just like the Razer Hammerhead Earbuds, Razer’s brand-new Pikachu True Wireless Headphones come equipped with built-in dynamic custom-tuned 13mm sound drivers (one in each earbud), which ultimately allow the earbuds to provide users with a premium sound quality listening experience, pushing out exactly what you would expect from any Razer earbuds; crisp trebles and midrange tones accompanied by a deep and satisfying bass.
CONNECTIVITY & COMPATIBILITY
Once again, as this special and limited edition of Pikachu wireless headphones is based on the Razer Hammerhead Earbuds, the Pikachu True Wireless Headphones also support Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, featuring a Bluetooth wireless range that goes up to 30 ft. (10 m).
Razer’s new Pikachu wireless headphones also support both SBC and AAC codes and are compatible with most devices that feature Bluetooth audio capability, including Android devices that are running Android 8.0 Oreo and up, as well as any iOS devices running on iOS 11 or higher.
BATTERY AND BATTERY LIFE
Each Razer Pokémon Pikachu wireless earbud comes equipped with a small built-in 275mAh rechargeable Li-Po battery that can offer up to 4 hours of battery life.
However, what makes Razer’s brand-new Pokémon Pikachu wireless earbuds truly special is their proprietary Carrying/Charging Case.
You’ve guessed it; it’s none other than a perfect replica a Poké Ball from the Japanese anime series, with its front button lighting up whenever it is connected to its included power cable, thus easily informing users about its current battery level.
The earbuds’ Poké Ball Charging Case provides an additional 12 hours of battery life (for a total of 15 hours of battery life) and also allows users to recharge the earbuds after placing them inside their case, with a quick charging time of only 1.5 hours of waiting.
While the earbuds easily snap onto their magnetic charging ports, the product page asks users to not throw the Poké Ball at the earbuds to “capture” them like Poké Trainers would do with Pokémons in the Japanese anime series.
The earbuds’ Poké Ball Carrying/Charging Case also features a durable wrist strap that allows users to easily attach their cool looking Poké Ball earbuds case to anything they can think of, including their wrist, belt, backpack strap(s), and more, ultimately allowing them to show off their new toy in a stylish manner.
Low Latency Connection Mode
Just like the Razer Hammerhead Earbuds, the Pikachu True Wireless Headphones also feature an extremely low 60ms input latency.
This ultimately means that your audio will remain perfectly synced with your Bluetooth device and will never stutter, providing you with a high-quality and more immersive audio experience for music, videos, casual Smartphone games, and even competitive gaming.
Touch-Enabled And Voice-Assistant Compatible
And just like the Hammerhead Earbuds, the Pikachu wireless earbuds allow users to go back and forth (previous/next) between soundtracks, as well Play/Pause those same tracks, manage any phone calls, and even activate their smartphone’s Voice Assistant — all from the earbuds’ easy-to-access Quick-Touch Interface.
Lastly, the Pikachu wireless earbuds also offer the original Hammerhead Earbuds’ voice prompts, which in this case, are replaced by Pikachu’s adorable voice.
Razer’s Pikachu True Wireless Headphones feature a IPX4 water resistance design, making them great for an active lifestyle, and come equipped with dynamic 13mm sound drivers for a premium sound quality listening experience.
Furthermore, they feature support to Bluetooth 5.0, SBC and AAC codes, a total of 15 hours of battery life (when used together with their included Poké Ball Carrying/Charging Case), Low Latency Connection Mode for a flawless listening experience that’s great for competitive gaming and touch-controls and Voice Assistant voice commands.
It’s extremely sad to say, but the Razer Pokémon Pikachu True Wireless Headphones will only be available in China, getting sold online at Tmall and starting at 849 yuan (about $120) per pair. Online sales for the Pikachu Wireless Headphones will be opened at midnight (Chinese local time) on April 16th.
If by any chance you have any close friends living far away on that side of the world, and you’re interested in getting your hands on Razer’s brand-new limited edition of Pikachu True Wireless Headphones, then be quick and try to get a hold of them before it is too late, as these are bound to sell out as quickly as Pikachu can shoot a Lightning Strike from his cute thunder-shaped tail.
