Laptop-toting gamers need powerful speakers, too. And Razer has you covered with the Ferox, a pair of compact speakers you can comfortably carry around with the rest of your mobile gaming ensemble.
No longer will you have to settle for your laptop’s shoddy audio or shut out your environment with headphones when you’re playing on the road. With omni-directional sound, it can pipe the drama and violence of your favorite PC shooters in satisfying fashion.
The Razer Ferox is a pair of pod-like boxes that measure just over two inches tall, making them easy to slip into a bag for carrying around conveniently. Designed for mobile use, the speakers don’t require plugging into a power source to work. Instead, they come with built-in rechargeable batteries that can run for up to 12 hours on a single charge. Speaker features include 30mm drivers and 150Hz-20KHz frequency response, along with a 3.5 mm connector (sorry, no Bluetooth, so you’ll still have to deal with some wires).
When powered on, a cone pops out of the top of each speaker, making room for a bass-resonance chamber that replicates the sound generated with a subwoofer in tow. The pop-out effect, paired with glowing blue lights on the bottom of each unit, adds just enough geeky flavor to make it a perfect fit for anyone who bothers hauling a laptop around just to play with an FPS at the nearest Starbucks.
At $59.99, the Razer Ferox sounds like a great way to save yourself from your laptop’s nasty built-in sound system during LAN parties. It’s available now.
