    "Compatible with both Android and iOS devices"

    So no Windows phone then? Also no Windows laptop or desktop support?

    I must be misunderstanding what 'wireless' means

    Not sure what there is to misunderstand, they're wireless to the phone. But they have also made a wired Lightning version of them specifically for iOS.

    What is disappointing is the long charge vs use time, Battery technology still sucks

    Egh, actually I'd argue that it's the wireless tech that sucks in this case - wireless uses a lot of battery power in general. Lower power wifi would be great, it's not like these earphones should need 100 metres range or something.

    Battery tech does suck though.

    True, Wireless still requires quite a large amount of power to operate. Roll on the Nuclear Diamond Batteries, woo!

    ummm Bluetooth 5.0 ? the new standard that seems to be the solution tbh...

    Quadruple the range than the current BT 4.1 which the Razer Hammerhead BT is using :3

    although yeah... current known phone to have BT5.0 is the Galaxy S8

    I think you're picking the wrong feature to celebrate here...

    The only good thing is higher bandwidth meaning you could get higher sound quality with less compression.

    I don't believe the statement from the honourable gentleman was quite in celebration of the aforementioned feature...!!

    Re: Razer Hammerhead BT Bluetooth wireless in-ear headset launched

    Another product from a company that has scammed it's customers in Australia. They have advertised to improve sales and given out discount vouchers for the razer Core to unsuspecting customers in Australia, but not only is it not imported here, they have not even put the Core on their Australian website. The voucher is only usable in Australia, so there are a lot of disgruntled (to put it politely) people here.
    So another black mark on the razer brand.
