    So, my overall audio preference is anything earbuds. I prefer earbuds to over-ear because I have hearing loss (significant in my right ear) and earbuds (thankfully) allow me to have as close to a "surround" or stereo sound experience as possible when gaming or listening to music.

    Trying to find a good pair of (non-iOS) earbuds to use on my PC has been rather challenging to say the least. I even ordered adapters to try to get from iOS lightning to regular USB (to try and use with my Beats while gaming on my computer, but apparently no one has put that two-and-two together, since Windows doesn't recognize it and there is no Windows driver or compatibility for iOS beats).

    When I discovered Razer's new Hammerheads (with noise cancelling), I knew my worries were over. Kudos to Razer for the Hammerheads! Thank you! These are THE BOMB!

    With all that said, and I understand that currently the Hammerhead does not appear as a compatible device listed for Chroma, but it should. Is there currently any possible development to integrate the Hammerhead for use with PC (i.e. Synapse, Chroma, etc.). Whether to change the green to another color or simply synch with the DeathAdder.

    Typically, when I crash-out at night, the first thing I do is reach for one of my mice, open up the apps, and dim all the lighting. Can't dim the lighting on my Hammerhead since there is currently no integration, so I had to get-up and unplug it. It would be also nice if the Hammerhead had a pure USB option (not simply USB-C). Just throwing all this out there...Thanks!

    While the Hammerhead USB-C ANC would likely work with USB-C ports on most computers (the beauty of USB), it was designed for use with mobile phones.

    It does not have the hardware nor firmware to support Chroma lighting or software controls through Synapse.
