Razer has launched a new wireless gaming headset for two of the most popular gaming consoles on the market. Razer’s new Thresher Ultimate headphones are available for both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. The versions for each console is decked out in color highlights that are representative of the consoles, so that’s blue for the PlayStation 4 and green for the Xbox One.

The Razer Thresher Ultimate headphones for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 don’t use Bluetooth to connect wirelessly to the console, they rely on 2.4GHz wireless instead. This enables them to provide a range of 150 feet as well as a direct line of sight of almost 70 feet if obstructions are getting in the way.

The range that the Thresher Ultimate provides will be good enough for most gaming setups. Unless you’ve got a freakishly big space to play games in, rest assured, you won’t face any issues with regards to the range.

The headset features a double headband design with the padded cushion providing a comfortable wearing experience while the aluminum band provides structural durability. The ear cushions even have indentations in them so that it’s easier for users with glasses to keep them on for longer periods of time.

A retractable microphone is onboard as well for those who like to communicate with their fellow players while they’re playing online. Volume and microphone controllers are located on the bottom of the ear cups.

Razer is going to start shipping the Thresher Ultimate later this month for $250.
