SOUND QUALITY

The Opus uses four microphones in a Hybrid ANC approach, similar to more-expensive models. Official asset provided by Razer.

ANC QUALITY

The pads offer just enough space inside that they shouldn’t hurt your ears, though Bose’s openings are still a little larger. Photo taken by the author.

COMFORT

It takes a little sunlight to fully appreciate the Blue in the “Midnight Blue” color, which is just a few steps above a true black. I think it’s nice. Photo taken by the author.

BUILD/DESIGN

The buttons are easy to distinguish and have a satisfying click to them. Photo taken by the author.

FEATURES/EXTRAS

The Opus app offers five EQ modes to choose from, but the default THX mode is by far my favorite. Screenshot captured by the author.
The case is rather nice, and just as compact as those included with Bose and Sony’s flagships. Photo taken by the author.
