Razer launches Enki Pro HyperSense chair that vibrates for greater immersion

As part of the CES 2022 announcements, Razer launched the new Enki Pro HyperSense, the brand's most advanced gaming chair. As the name suggests, the novelty combines the features of the traditional Enki Pro with HyperSense technology, also present in some of the company's headsets, which promises greater immersion in a vast list of games, movies and series with highly accurate haptic feedback.

Enki Pro HyperSense Promises Immersion with Haptic Response

Razer's new gamer chair maintains the qualities seen in the Enki Pro, thus promising to offer comfort even for the longest gaming sessions or work. In addition to Alcantara fabric, the back has an accentuated 110° curvature and a built-in lumbar support, which promises to reduce stress on the spine and encourage good posture.

Other highlights include the reactive recline, which tilts the chair up to 152° in response to the player's movements, and the magnetic memory foam pad that adjusts to the shape of the user's head. Enki Pro HyperSense wants to go further, however, being the brand's "superpremium" solution.

The big news is the implementation of HyperSense technology, already present in the Kraken V3 headphone family, made possible by the inclusion of a haptic engine from the D-BOX, the same technology used in special seats in movie theaters like the Cinemark. Razer promises to deliver a new level of immersion with the feature, which is expected to be widely adopted by all indications.

According to the manufacturer, more than 2,200 games, movies and series will have dedicated working profiles with Enki Pro HyperSense. Games such as Assassin's Creed Valhalla, F1 2021 and Forza Horizon 5 were mentioned, while productions from platforms such as Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+, Disney+, HBO Max and Netflix will be compatible with the technology.

Bypassing a limitation of other company peripherals, such as the keyboard with analog buttons , HyperSense will also work in games not optimized for the resource — in this case, the chair will respond to the player's commands, either via keyboard and mouse or controller. Other than that, taking advantage of the use of electricity, Razer added its trademark to the launch by adopting RGB lighting in the logo of the backrest.

Razer Announces New Zephyr Pro with Voice Projection

Parallel to this, it was also announced the Razer Zephyr Pro, a new version of the company's gamer mask equipped with voice projection, a feature cut from the original model to reduce costs. Overall, the accessory maintains the characteristics of the traditional Zephyr , employing an aggressive look with RGB lighting and two N95 disposable filters to block up to 99% of viruses and bacteria.

The change is in the addition of two RGB zones, in addition to internal microphones that capture the user's voice to reproduce it on the two external speakers added to the front region of the device. The set is capable of amplifying the voice up to 60 dB, with a range of up to 1 meter.

Razer explains that the feature was present in Project Hazel, the concept that gave rise to Zephyr, but was removed so that the final price was kept at US$99 (R$999 in Brazil). Also according to the company, the Pro version is born from the way the concepts are treated — all are like "platforms", which result in different products to meet the most varied users.

Price and availability

To date, Razer Enki Pro has yet to reveal pricing and availability details. Meanwhile, the Razer Zephyr Pro is slated to debut in 2022, without a specific date, for $149.99 (~R$835). A kit with 33 N95 filters, which would last 99 days according to the company, will also be sold, for US$199.99 (~R$1,115).
