Razer Barracuda X wireless gaming headset review
In case you are a gamer, you must have heard about Razer Barracuda X wireless gaming headset. But what do you know about this flexible gaming headset? Well, in this article, we will take a look at Razer Barracuda X wireless gaming headset.
The Razer Barracuda X is a wireless flexible gaming headset. Because of its USB-C transmitter, this headset can easily work with anything. It can be plugged into your Android phone, PC, Nintendo Switch, or PlayStation, to get wireless sound. This flexible gaming headset can capture voice communication with loads of clarity and its sound is high-quality.
Razer Barracuda X can be suitable for:
Gamers who need a gaming headset to use with their PC, consoles, and smartphones.
Workers who are at home and want to have a light headset to wear in Zoom calls.
Light and clean
Razer Barracuda X wireless gaming headset is like the Blackshark V2 in being basic and black, but it has flat ear cups instead of rounded ones. The outside surface is made of matte black plastic, while the ear pads and headband padding are made of faux leather. The padding is not thick, but this flexible gaming headset is comfortable due to its light, 8. 8-ounce frame. Due to its featherweight nature, Razer Barracuda X is not as dense as Nari Essentia or Blackshark V2.
They have put the controls including mic mute button, volume wheel, power button, 3.5mm port for a wired connection, USB-C port for charging, and another 3.5mm port for the detachable boom mic on the left ear cup’s edge.
Razer Barracuda X battery
With a single charge, it will last up to 20 hours. Razer Barracuda X can be charged over USB-C in a couple of hours, but it can’t support fast charging of any kind. When the LED indicator turns green, it means that the battery is full.
Razer Barracuda X works with anything
You can connect the headset to a 2.4GHz USB-C dongle. This way, it will be plugged into numerous devices. The dongle is small and black which stays flat against your phone or Switch. It is paired with Razer Barracuda X.
Moreover, Razer Barracuda X includes a 3.5mm cable to use the headset wired, a male-USB-A-to-female-USB-C cable to connect the dongle to devices, and a male-USB-A-to-male-USB-C cable for charging. There is no carrying case or a cloth pouch included to hold the headset and all of the accessories. It is somehow weird because there is no space for the dongle to be stored.
The 3.5mm cable can be used for a passive and analog wired connection to any of your devices. This way, the headset can be used with an Xbox. It doesn’t have Bluetooth, so it should be used wirelessly with your phone by having the dongle sticking out of it.
Optional audio processing
Unlike some PC or console-dedicated headsets, the Barracuda X does not include any particular apps or integrated audio processing. It works as a stereo device. The Barracuda X works with all software-based audio processings like THX Spatial Audio, Dolby Atmos, and Pulse 3D.

Just like other Razer headsets, the Barracuda X’s microphone performs well. But one thing to remember is that you would better be far from any sources of humming or buzzing to get a clean and nice sound that can be good for voice chat, podcasting, and streaming. You may consider a dedicated USB mic.
Balanced, bass-forward sound
The Barracuda X provides reasonably strong bass. We can say that the overall sound signature on the Barracuda X is balanced. You should know that its sound moves towards bass frequencies instead of higher ones.
