Open-back headset from Razer?

  1. Hi all, does Razer have any open-back headsets? I can't seem to find any information on it, but all of them that I look at seem to be closed-back. I have a special circumstance that requires open-back. If they do, and they have multiple, can anyone point me to all their open-back headset names so I can compare from there? Thanks in advance.

    I don't think they have any, definitely something I'd be interested in as well.
    Why do you want open back headphones in the first place though? just curious.
  3. I've had issues with my ears my entire life, I'm much more prone to ear infections than most people (I get about 5-10 per year). Because of this I have tubes permanently left in my ear drums to ease the symptoms, but it also requires that I be more careful (wear special ear plugs if I go swimming, get ZERO water in ears during showers, etc.). My hearing is also diminished because of this, I can still hear fine but I need the volume to be a bit higher than what would be considered normal.

    In the past I've mostly used speaker setups as I lived alone, so the volume being higher didn't matter. I would only use headsets if I was playing something requiring a mic setup. Now I live with multiple people - I have my own room but a speaker setup would still be heard through the room walls. I switched to a permanent headset setup so I didn't bother others but it's causing constant ear infections due to the closed-back setup, the air warms up and causes a small amount of sweat build up which then goes through the tubes and in to my inner ear wreaking havoc.

    Supposedly open-back sound more realistic, so I'd like to give that a try. But mostly it's to allow my ears to ventilate and not sweat. The sound from them being open shouldn't be enough to go through the room walls, so it's a much better choice than speakers for my current household.

    It's a bummer, I'm a huge fan of Razer products. Hopefully they release one down the line so I can look in to it for my next headset, but for now I'll probably snag the Sennheiser GSP550, they seem to be the most in-line with what I'd be looking for from Razer but they are open-back. Thanks for your help confirming Razer does not currently have them.

    right! thanks a lot for sharing your reason. I think its realistic to think that razer could come up with a pair of open ear headphones at some point if it really provides a more premium sound experience, but for now getting some from another company sounds like a better idea than waiting and having to cope with infections.
    I wish you luck with your "condition", hoping other headphones will aid in making it better for you.
