Product on Review: Razer Leviathan Mini
Street Price: UK: £139.99, US: $179.99
Late summer last year, we had the chance to take a look at the Razer Leviathan, a gaming soundbar with virtual 5.1 surround rendering. Recently, we were informed that the Leviathan had babies in the form of a portable wireless speaker. Though I would have loved a name like 'Spawn of Leviathan', Razer felt that Leviathan Mini would suffice.
At just 550g, and dimensions of 54 x 185 x 55 mm (DxWxH), it is far more portable than the likes of say, the Creative ROAR. Though considering it is coming in at the same price with fewer features, the pair of 45mm drivers have a lot to live up to. Aiding those drivers to deliver a punch, Razer have also fitted 2x 40 x 70mm passive radiators. Supporting Bluetooth 4.0 devices that can be paired manually or via NFC, you can also connect devices through a more traditional 3.5mm jack. Bluetooth streaming supports A2DP/aptX as well as HFP1.5 hands free for mobile calls that will be supported by an integrated 4mm microphone featuring 'Clear Voice Capture Technology'.
One of the party pieces of the Razer Leviathan Mini is something that we would have loved to see implemented in the Creative Roar series (that is currently done so where there megastereo connection is supported), that is, wireless 'comboplay'. You can connect a pair of Leviathan Mini portable speakers wirelessly while connected to a Bluetooth source, amplifying your output and creating a true stereo experience.
