Razer Hammerhead BT Audio Delay?

    So, I find myself in an odd situation. I have just recently got myself a Razer Phone so I am in the market for a pair of Bluetooth earphones. However, I also watch a lot of Netflix and YouTube on my Ipad on my earphones. This seemed fine as I had wired earphones until they broke. So now I find myself needing a pair of good quality wireless earphones with little to no delay. At least delay that would not ruin my viewing experience. Through internet research, I have found that the Razer Hammerhead BTs are supposed to support the latest low-latency audio drivers but I have failed to get a straight answer as to just how much latency they have so I have come here. What sort of latency do these earphones have? How do they compare to other Bluetooth earphones at the same price and are they worth buying, or should I just get the regular V2's and use the Razer Phone's adapter? Thank you!

    So far to what I can see the low latency is optimised using the Qualcomm aptX® audio codec (if your phone is compatible)

    According to the APTX website https://www.aptx.com/aptx, to supports a latency of less than 130ms.

    I personally have these headphones and haven't noticed anything that I would notice that would consider to be out of sync.

    Thank you ReaperonYT. Everything seems good then, I'll buy these earphones when I get home tonight! I'll report my experience back to this page in a few weeks time.
