What we think you should know:
Sundays were made for music. There is nothing quite like napping on the couch, wine in hand while playing some chilled music in the background and catching up on Snapchat.
When you hear someone bleat on about sound quality and you think “music is music” you clearly need to get your hands on the Razer Leviathan Sound Bar. Razer is a name synonymous with gaming but it also usually means quality is assured. If that annoying girl who always has to one up you comes over for wine she won’t be mocking that little blue tooth speaker that crackles through your Disney playlist (no judgies).
I wasn’t aware that Razer was dipping their toes into the sound supply pool. I knew about their Microphone offering but going head to head with the likes of Sennheiser, Bose and Onkyo requires far more than decent water wings.
I can safely say that Razer’s stroke easily keeps up with the best. It’s hard to hear the difference between the big sound heavyweights when you pit their offerings against the Razer Leviathan. How do you summarise good sound? Crisp. Clean. Deep. While it might sound like the same old, keep in mind I haven’t worn my headphones in weeks and my Sunday music sessions are now, pretty much, daily.
There is a con though. It’s pretty much standard for quality sound systems these days: price. You’re going to have to pay through your nose for this one. The Razer offering isn’t going to give you an understated ‘few speakers dotted here and there’ aesthetic appeal. It’s a single bar with a subwoofer that looks more like a deformed giant cube. I found the bar a bit clunky and big but it does make the issue of cabling running to each speaker mute (see what I did there?). You’re going to end up struggling to find a place for the subwoofer on your desk. It will sit on the floor.
For the uninitiated the Razer Leviathan Sound Bar is fantastic. For those who pride themselves on their good ears… it’s pretty good too. For gamers, an alternative to headphones is a must with this summer heat and the Razer Leviathan Sound Bar is a great entry level sound system. It also lights up green, which is fun when the lights go out.
The Sound Quality!
Makes us sad:
It’s big. You’re going to struggle to fit it on your PC desk.
