THX Certification – The gold standard in entertainment experiences

Razer Headphones

THX Certified Razer headphones, earbuds and in-ear monitors pass hundreds of tests to ensure the highest audio standards possible. Developed to define a reference headphone listening experience, the THX Headphone Certification Program gives special attention to frequency response and its consistency, low distortion and exceptional noise isolation. This ensures that:

  • High frequencies, vocals, and bass levels are well balanced in relation to each other. This allows you to hear all the details in high-resolution tracks, ensures dialog in movies and vocals in music are clear, while maintaining deep, impactful bass output that doesn’t overpower the listening experience
  • Audio output levels between the left and right channels are well balanced to provide a clear central image and to accurately localize specific sounds and effects where they should be
  • Content can easily be played back at increased volumes without introducing unwanted noise
  • The headphones/earbuds are able to both seal in audio and block out external sounds.

Razer Monitors

THX Certified PC monitors undergo more than 400 individual tests to ensure color, tone and images reproduce the creator’s intentions accurately in stunning picture quality on the monitor. While THX has certified hundreds of products, including televisions, the Razer Raptor 27 is the world’s first PC monitor to achieve THX Certification, expanding the robust display certification program to test PC monitors with the same rigorous performance criteria as 4K TVs. Whether playing your favorite games, or watching movies on your computer, this THX Certified monitor ensures sharp picture and accurate colors with no motion blur or light bleed.

Examples of THX Certification testing for PC monitors include:

  • Color Accuracy: Displays are tested to ensure all images match the color, luminance, and black detail as found in the original source, and all primary and blended colors are reproduced exactly as they were in the studio.
  • Gamma: Shadows and dark details are important to good image quality. THX requires adherence to the gamma curve used in game and movie production.
  • Panel Performance: Not all display panels are uniformly backlit. To ensure consistent image quality across the entire screen, THX Certified monitors are tested for light leakage and hot spots to confirm that the edges of the image are not washed out.

Both PC loudspeakers and headphone audio have been optimized by THX to deliver maximal acoustic performance, custom-tuned to the device’s unique hardware architecture. The built-in loudspeakers are measured for near-field as well as far-field acoustic response, and a corrective tuning profile containing both EQ + dynamics is generated for integration into the Windows audio subsystem. This means the user should experience a balanced acoustic response when sitting near to the laptop, as well as when seated in the same room.
