Razer Introduces Nommo Speaker Line
Further expanding their reach into every corner of the PC gaming accessories market, Razer has just announced a new speaker line. Known as the Nommo series, the lineup is comprised of three models: Nommo Pro, Nommo Chroma, and Nommo.
While aesthetics were clearly a high priority, Razer claim that the Nommo speaker range was principally engineered to excel at positional audio; using left and right stereo imaging to help ensure gamers know where sounds are coming from.
The Nommo Pro is the highest-end model in the series. It is a 2.1 speaker system that has been THX Certified and that also features Dolby Virtual Speaker, which allows stereo speakers to mimic a virtual surround sound. This flagship model feature two 3-inch kevlar-coated drivers, two independent 0.8-inch silk dome tweeters, a standalone 6-inch downward firing subwoofer, and a control pod. The control pod not only serves as the volume knob, but it also houses the USB, Optical, Bluetooth, 3.5mm aux-in and 3.5mm headphone jack. Unsurprisingly, the speakers also features Razer's Chroma RGB LED lighting feature, which has 16.8 million customizable colour options.
The tweeters, subwoofer, control pod, and optical + Bluetooth connectivity are exclusive to the Nommo Pro model, which will retail for a not insignificant $499.99 USD.
The Nommo Chroma is a more basic 2.0 speaker system, but it does feature a built-in DAC. This model also features two 3-inch drivers but featuring woven glass instead of kevlar coating. Since it has to make due without the subwoofer, the Nommo Chroma has rear-firing bass ports to add a little extra low-end to the audio. While there is no control pod with this model, the volume knob and bass level adjustment is built right into the stand of the right-hand speaker. The Nommo Chroma features both 3.5mm and USB audio inputs, as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack.
As per its name, this model also features Razer's Chroma RGB LED lighting feature, which has 16.8 million customizable colour options. The Nommo Chroma will retail for $149.99 USD.
Lastly, we have the basic Nommo. This model features the same speakers and design as the Nommo Chroma, but does away with the Chroma RGB LED lighting and the USB connectivity. As a result, it only has 3.5mm input and outputs. On this plus side, this lower-end model retails for a more wallet-friendly $99.99 USD.
The Razer Nommo and Nommo Chroma will be available worldwide in January 2018, while the availability of the Nommo Pro is yet to be determined.
