Razer, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end precision gaming and lifestyle peripherals, has joined forces with PAX 2009, a three-day game festival for tabletop, videogame and PC gamers, to release the limited edition PAX series Razer Moray+ mobile gaming communicator powered by Razer technology. The PAX series Razer Moray+ is an in-ear noise isolating earphone equipped with an omnidirectional inline microphone that provides a smart, portable solution for gamers on the go and will be available in PAX Blue. The PAX series Razer Moray+ will be available only at the merchandise booth on the fourth floor.
“We’re excited about continuing our relationship with PAX again, this time with the Razer Moray+, a superior mobile gaming communicator, to create a memorable, special edition quality product,” said Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, president, Razer. “This gives on-the-go gamers who travel to events like PAX a compact headset solution that is portable and lightweight. No need to lug around large headsets – this is an earphone that satisfies gamers’ audio, communication and gaming needs.”
