RAZER ANNOUNCES THE KAIRA PRO – THE ULTIMATE XBOX AND CLOUD GAMING HEADSET
The Kaira Pro Designed for Xbox brings Razer’s latest innovative audio technologies to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox Game Pass for amazing quality cross-platform, multi-device audio wherever and however you play
Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the Kaira Pro Designed for Xbox, a high-performance wireless gaming headset for Xbox Series X|S featuring Razer’s latest award-winning audio technologies, delivering a next level audio experience on the next generation of Xbox consoles. Using Razer’s TriForce Titanium 50mm Drivers and HyperClear Supercardioid Mic, and with Xbox Wireless and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, the Kaira Pro provides stunning audio and clear voice comms for both Xbox Series X|S and cloud gaming players.
Today, gamers can access more than 100 game titles on Xbox consoles, PCs and – with the advent of cloud gaming – Android devices with a membership to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. But a lack of cross-platform compatibility left gamers using different headsets to play the same game on different devices, often compromising on performance and features. With the Razer Kaira Pro, gamers can use the same high-quality, feature-rich headset on their Xbox Series X|S, PC and Android phone or tablet, to enjoy the rich, immersive sound and crackle free comms for that perfect gaming experience, whether at home or on the go.
“Now that gamers can play their favourite games almost anywhere they want, the need for a high-performance, multi-platform headset is greater than ever,” says Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s peripherals business unit. “With the Kaira Pro, gamers now have a single headset for use at home on their Xbox Series X|S or PC, which is also ideal when they’re out and playing on their Android phone or tablet. By pairing the Kaira Pro with a Razer Kishi and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, gamers can take the full console experience with them wherever they go.”
Next generation Xbox mobile gaming
The Kaira Pro is specifically designed for multi-device compatibility, capable of connecting to a variety of platforms and devices. Using Xbox Wireless and Bluetooth 5.0, the Kaira Pro can be connected to the new Xbox Series X|S without the need for a dongle, and to Windows 10 PC and Android phones or tablets via Bluetooth 5.0, allowing gamers to take their headset to as many places as they take their games.
Using an innovative dual microphone design, the Kaira Pro has a detachable Razer HyperClear Supercardioid Mic for crystal-clear voice chat. When out and about, the microphone can be removed, and a separate, built-in mobile microphone, concealed within the headset automatically takes over voice communication, keeping the look of the Kaira Pro clean and lightweight.
Powered by multi-award-winning audio technology
The Kaira Pro brings the latest in Razer’s audio technology to Xbox Series X|S. Using the same Razer TriForce Titanium 50mm Drivers that debuted in the multi-award-winning Razer BlackShark V2, the Kaira Pro provides even brighter, clearer audio, with individually tuned high, mid and low range frequencies for clearer trebles, a rich midrange and powerful bass, to deliver an immersive audio experience. Via the EQ preset button, Xbox gamers can toggle through four equaliser presets such as an FPS Mode to enhance in-game audio like enemy footsteps, or select Bass Mode for a more powerful, booming game sound.
Featuring the Razer HyperClear Supercardioid Mic, the Razer Kaira Pro delivers ultra-clear voice comms, even in the heat of battle. With improved voice isolation, excluding more ambient noise from the back and sides, increased sensitivity for greater low frequency response, and an optimised housing for added clarity and accurate voice pick-up, your teammates are sure to hear every word you say.
Highest comfort on the couch and on the go
Designed for long play sessions, the Kaira Pro uses an ultra-soft breathable memory foam, with ear cushions designed to minimise heat build-up and perspiration. A soft, well-padded headband over a lightweight stainless-steel frame ensures a flexible and extremely durable design.
The Kaira Pro Designed for Xbox is the ultimate audio solution for next-gen Xbox gaming. No matter if you play your favourite games on Xbox Series X|S or prefer to play on Android devices via cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, the Kaira Pro delivers a high-quality sound experience and crystal-clear chat communication in any situation.

The most efficient laptop from Razer to date puts productivity at the forefront with 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors with Intel® Evo™ platform verification, the world’s thinnest 13.4” display bezels, universal connectivity, and all-day battery
Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the all-new Razer Book 13, a new high-performing productivity laptop built for the go-getters, side-hustlers, and spirited entrepreneurs of today’s mobile world. With its ultra-mobile design, the world’s thinnest 13.4” display bezels, powerful 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics, and robust connectivity, the 13-inch ultraportable enables users to do more, faster.
“Since the launch of the first Razer Blade in 2011, Razer has built a legacy on delivering the highest performing gaming laptops to the delight of our fans worldwide. Today we are excited to announce Razer is breaking into the productivity space the same way we broke into laptop gaming: With a bang,” said Brad Wildes, Senior Vice President & General Manager of Razer’ Systems business unit. “The new Razer Book 13 is the culmination of a decade’s worth of experience in developing and crafting high-end gaming machines. Sleek, powerful, and compact, the Razer Book 13 breaks out from the boring crowd and delivers prosumers an experience not yet realised in a work laptop.”
Slim. Sleek. Mobile.
Built for mobility, the Razer Book 13 was carved from a single block of aluminum making it nimble yet durable, then anodised with a mercury white finish to give it a touch of class and an extra layer of scratch resistance. The Razer Book 13 is a compact companion, weighing in at under 3 lbs. and only .6” thin, it moves effortlessly from job to job. The keyboard features per-key Razer Chroma RGB backlighting that can be customised to highlight essential keys or to add a touch of personality.
Lining the sides of the keyboard are two booming speakers powered with smart amp technology and featuring with THX® Spatial Audio for rich immersive 360-degree sound. THX Spatial Audio is also available for listening over 3.5mm headphones. Up front and center is an expansive glass touchpad with Windows Precision Drivers to make every click and swipe, smooth and accurate.
Power to Produce
Inside the ultra-compact 13-inch notebook is the latest 11th Gen Intel Core processor, up to the Intel® Core™ i7-1165G7 in select models, capable of up to 4.7GHz clock speeds with Intel® Turbo Boost. The all-new processor is faster and more efficient than the previous generation, allowing users to get more done over longer periods of time without having to reach for a charger. With the new Intel Core processor comes the new and improved Iris™ Xe integrated graphics, capable of creating beautiful immersive worlds for users to sink their eyes into. To ensure the ultra-thin laptop stays cool and quiet under load, the processor is fitted with a unique vapour chamber cooling solution from Razer, that reduces ambient heat and noise emissions.
The Razer Book 13 comes with up to 16GB of memory for taking on heavy multitasking, managing dense productivity-based projects, and improving performance in creative applications. The 13-inch ultraportable is also equipped with up to 512GB of blazing fast SSD storage, enabling users to quickly access programs, files, and other media without having to wait.
While every model of Razer Book 13 has been designed with convenience and efficiency in mind, touch-enabled models will feature Intel® Evo™ platform verification, distinguishing them as the absolute best choice for mobile power users. Intel Evo™ verified laptops are an elite class of mobile devices that feature instant wake technology to quickly resume work in less than a second, consistent responsiveness on battery, no less than 9 hours of real-world battery life on designs with FHD displays to make it through the day, and 4 or more hours of battery life in a 30-minute charge¹.
“Enabled by intensive co-engineering support and verified to be the best thin and light laptops for getting things done, Intel Evo platforms set a higher bar for the experiences people should expect from their laptop,” said Joshua Newman, vice president, Intel Client Computing Group and general manager of Mobile Innovation, Intel. “Intel Evo verified designs like the new Razer Book 13 are engineered to help remove lag, distractions and dependency on battery chargers – ensuring exceptional experiences from anywhere.”
The Razer Book 13 features a custom calibrated 13.4” display with the world’s thinnest bezels on any 13.4” panel and a 16:10 aspect ratio to take full advantage of the Intel® Iris® Xe graphics. The near bezel-less display is available from a Full HD+ non-touch configuration up to a UHD+ touch configuration, each custom calibrated from the factory and each covering 100% of the SRGB color space for a truly remarkable viewing experience. The touch configurations of the Razer Book 13 feature Gorilla® Glass 6 with anti-reflective coating for increased durability and visibility. Lining the top of the display is an HD webcam with a 4-mic array and Windows Hello integration for fast and secure access as well as crystal clear video conferencing or remote learning.
Adapter Free Connectivity
Owners of the Razer Book 13 can leave their dongles at home as the ultraportable is lined with two Thunderbolt™ 4 ports (USB-C), a USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 port, a 3.5mm combo port, and a full-sized HDMI 2.0 port. Additionally, the ultraportable features a microSD card slot to quickly expand storage or transfer files from a camera or phone. Internally, the Razer Book 13 features the Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX 201 wireless card, with the latest wireless protocols including Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 for fast, reliable, and convenient wireless connectivity.
