Razer's Hammerhead in-ears now come in Type-C and Lightning

No 3.5mm jack? No problem with these in-ear headphones

Razer has announced the latest update to its Hammerhead in-ears. Now they come in both Lightning and USB Type-C versions, perfect for people embracing the slow death of the headphone jack.

No dongles for you

Razer also eschewed the 3.55mm audio jack with its phone and surprisingly has not received quite as much of a backlash for that unlike, say, Apple and Google.

The new in-ears are pricey but offer a fair number of features - an aluminium chassis, 10mm dynamic drivers, flat cables, passive noise isolation via bi-flange ear tips and an inline remote.

The Type-C version will come with a custom-tuned DAC converter while the iOS Mercury edition relies on the Lightning digital output, which Razer says will be handled "without processing".

These don't come cheap though. Think US$79.99 (S$108) for the Android version and US$99.99 (S$135) for the iOS Mercury.

The headphones are already available on the Razer online store and will be pushed to retail stores by Q1 2018.
