The Razer Barracuda X Wireless 2021 are budget-friendly gaming headphones. They have a detachable boom microphone and a USB dongle that provides a wireless connection with PlayStation consoles and PCs. It has a USB-C connection, so you can connect with devices like an Android phone or Nintendo Switch. Otherwise, they're light on features since they don't have any companion software or sound customization features. The 2021 model also doesn't support Bluetooth, but Razer released an updated 2022 model to offer this feature.

Our Verdict

7.4 Neutral Sound

The Razer Barracuda X are satisfactory for neutral sound. Out-of-the-box, they have a fairly neutral, though slightly warm sound profile that adds a little extra thump and punch in the bass range. However, higher frequencies of vocals and lead instruments may be dark or dull. Unfortunately, no sound customization features are available to help you adjust their sound to your liking.

Pros
  • Excellent imaging performance.
Cons
  • No sound customization features.
5.7 Commute/Travel

The Razer Barracuda X are sub-par for commuting and travel. While these headphones are comfortable enough for long days on the go, they aren't very portable and don't come with a case to help protect them. Also, they have poor noise isolation, meaning you can hear ambient noises like bus and plane engines and people chatting nearby. That said, they have a long battery life that's suitable for long flights, and you can use them wired if you prefer.

Pros
  • Over 24-hour continuous battery life.
  • Comfortable fit.
Cons
  • No carrying case included.
  • Bulky design.
  • Poor noise isolation.
6.2 Sports/Fitness

The Razer Barracuda X are mediocre for sports use. While they're very comfortable, the manufacturer didn't design them for this purpose. They aren't stable enough to stay on your head during your workouts. Also, you have to use their wireless USB-C dongle to get them to work wirelessly, which isn't very suitable for bringing them on the go.

Pros
  • Comfortable fit.
Cons
  • Bulky design.
6.8 Office

The Razer Barracuda X are fair for office use. Thanks to their over 24-hour continuous battery life, they can easily last through your 9-5 workday. They're also very comfortable, so you won't feel fatigued after long listening sessions. Unfortunately, they have poor noise isolation, so you can still hear coworkers talking nearby, which can be distracting.

Pros
  • Over 24-hour continuous battery life.
  • Comfortable fit.
Cons
  • Poor noise isolation.
  • Leak some noise.
7.2 Wireless Gaming

The Razer Barracuda X are satisfactory for wireless gaming. Thanks to their wireless USB dongle, they support non-Bluetooth wireless gaming with low latency. They have a comfortable fit and come with a detachable mic that transmits your voice clearly to your teammates on the other end of the line. While they're compatible with your PC, PS4, and PS5, unfortunately, you can't use them wirelessly with Xbox consoles, and they don't have companion software.

Pros
  • Comfortable fit.
  • Low latency.
Cons
  • No sound customization features.
  • Poor noise isolation.
7.3 Wired Gaming

The Razer Barracuda X are decent for wired gaming. They come with a 1/8" TRRS cable to connect them to your PC, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles for full audio and microphone compatibility. Over a wired connection, they have negligible latency. Also, their boom microphone can transmit your voice clearly, even in noisy settings. Unfortunately, they don't offer any sound customization features.

Pros
  • Comfortable fit.
  • Low latency.
Cons
  • No sound customization features.
  • No companion app.
6.9 Phone Calls

The Razer Barracuda X are reasonable for phone calls. They have a detachable boom microphone that offers satisfactory recording quality, so your voice is clear and natural but also a bit thin. The mic has good noise handling, so your voice isn't drowned out by background noises, even if you're calling from a noisy place. Unfortunately, they have poor noise isolation, meaning you can be distracted by ambient noise during your calls.

Pros
  • Good noise handling performance.
Cons
  • Poor noise isolation.
  • 7.4 Neutral Sound
  • 5.7 Commute/Travel
  • 6.2 Sports/Fitness
  • 6.8 Office
  • 7.2 Wireless Gaming
  • 7.3 Wired Gaming
  • 6.9 Phone Calls

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Razer Barracuda X 2021 variant comes in Black, Quartz (or Quartz Pink), and Mercury (or White). We tested them in 'Black', and you can see the label for the model we tested here. These headphones have also been updated by Razer in 2022. The Razer Barracuda X Wireless 2022 have slightly different features than the 2021 model we tested: they support Bluetooth and have longer battery life.

If you come across another version, let us know in the forums, and we'll update our review.

Compared To Other Headphones

The Razer Barracuda X are entry-level headphones in the Barracuda lineup. Unlike their mid-level sibling, the Razer Barracuda Wireless, they have a boom mic instead of an integrated one, ensuring that your voice sounds decent when talking to others. Their USB dongle connects to devices via USB-C, which lets you connect with a phone or Nintendo Switch, as well as PlayStation consoles via non-Bluetooth wireless. Unlike other wallet-friendly gaming headphones, they don't offer companion software, and they don't come with any sound customization features.

They also have a longer continuous battery life, support Bluetooth, are better built, and come with a carrying case to help protect them when you're on the go.

The Razer Barracuda X have a simple, sleek design. They come in different colors: 'Black', 'Quartz' (or 'Quartz Pink'), and 'Mercury' (or 'White').

The Razer Barracuda X are comfortable. The headband and ear cups are well-padded and don't clamp very tightly on your head. That said, it can be hard to get a good seal. If you're looking for lighter headphones with a smaller fit, try the Logitech G435 LIGHTSPEED Wireless instead.

They have decent controls. The power button on the left ear cup also lets you control audio playback. There's a separate volume wheel and mute microphone button. The wheel has limits when you reach min and max volume, which is nice. While the controls are easy to use, the manual says that some power button functions may not work with some devices.

They aren't very portable, like most over-ears. They won't easily fit into smaller bags, but that won't be an issue if you just plan to keep them next to your desk or couch. The ear cups swivel to lay flat, which makes them more comfortable to wear around your neck.

They have a decent build quality. Although they don't feel as well-built as the Razer Opus X Wireless, their mostly plastic design still feels solid and durable. The headband has faux leather padding, and the ear cups are cloth. Unfortunately, the headband padding glue came off slightly on our unit.

They have a slightly warm sound profile. A little extra emphasis in the bass range adds warmth and punch to your audio. However, the dip in the treble veils voices and instruments. Their sound profile is suitable for a variety of audio content, but unfortunately, they lack sound customization features.

These headphones have sub-par frequency response consistency. It's most noticeable in the bass range, and if you wear glasses or have thick hair, you may notice a drop in bass. There's also some difference in the headphones' treble delivery depending on the headphones' fit and positioning. To get the most consistent sound, you need to take time to adjust the headphones each time you use them.

They have very good bass accuracy. The range is slightly overemphasized, especially in the mid and high-bass ranges, so your audio has a little extra punch. This can help bring out sound effects in games, so if you're playing something like Escape from Tarkov, you can hear footsteps easily. This represents an average response, and your perception of their bass delivery can vary depending on their fit, seal, and positioning.

The Razer Barracuda X have decent peaks and dips performance. There's a peak across the bass range that adds punch and boom to your audio, though the mismatch between the L/R drivers means that this is more prominent in the right ear. Also, the uneven low-treble can make vocals and lead instruments alternately harsh and piercing or hard to hear. The peak in the mid-treble makes sibilants piercing.

They have excellent imaging performance. We've tested a few Razer products with poor imaging, but in general, most perform well, which indicates the brand's quality control and ergonomics. Weighted group delay falls mostly below the audibility threshold, resulting in a tight bass and transparent treble reproduction. Also, the L/R drivers of our unit are well-matched in phase, amplitude, and frequency, so sound objects like voices and game effects are accurately placed and localized within the stereo image.

They have a disappointing passive soundstage performance. The soundstage is perceived to be small, and sound seems to come from inside your head instead of speakers in the room around you.

That said, they perform better against higher-frequency ambient noise, so they can help block out a whining computer fan.

However, battery performance can vary depending on usage habits. If you want even longer battery life, it's worth noting that the manufacturer advertises a longer 50-hour continuous battery life for the 2022 model.
