Cooler Master MasterPulse Pro vs Razer Nari Ultimate

The market for gaming headphones is the one that has been saturated to the point that you have so many options, they can easily end up confusing to a point that you might not even know which one to buy. The good thing, however, is that if you are being careful about what you are looking for in the market, and you are a bit more careful with the options available in the market, you can easily buy the best possible option without any mistakes that might come in the way.

Two of the best gaming headphones in the market currently happen to the Cooler Master MasterPulse Pro and the Razer Nari Ultimate. These headphones have been making waves for some time, and are offering great value.

As a matter of fact, if you are looking to buy the best gaming headsets in the market, these are definitely worth checking out thanks to how good they are.

So much so that a proper comparison was warranted, and that is what we are going to explore here.

Sound Quality

Whether you are gaming, listening to music, or watching a movie, having headphones with good sound quality is something that we all need to look for. Simply because if we do not, we might end up buying something that is simply not good enough.

Razer was always known as a company that headphones farthest from anything that had well-balanced sound quality. But the good thing about the Razer Nari Ultimate is that the sound quality on these headphones is among one of the most balanced we have seen. They sound full and balanced too. Which makes them a lot better.

On the other hand, you have the Cooler Master MasterPulse Pro; a headphone that actually comes with virtual sound surround as well as a dedicated sound card that is on your cord. There is some customization to the sound available just like there is on the Razer Nari Ultimate, but these headphones are not as balanced, which means that outside gaming, you might not be able to enjoy them all together.

Razer Nari Ultimate is actually definitive headphones and will serve you pretty much in every single aspect.

Winner: Razer Nari Ultimate.


Another thing that you are going to be looking for in a pair of headphones is the feature set. Being a gamer, I get it that it is actually one of the most important factors. I am not spending money on something that does not give me a good set of features that I can actually use.

The Razer Nari Ultimate is surprisingly not loaded with features, which is very strange considering how we are talking about Razer here, but there are two things that set this pair apart. For starters, the headphones have haptic motors built into them that allow you to actually allow you to feel vibrations on the area that is covered by headphones. At first, I thought it was a gimmick, but it works so well that you actually start missing it again. Next up, you have a lot of personalization options that are built into the headphones, making them such a good pair of headphones that are also extremely versatile.

The MasterPulse Pro, on the other hand, is no slouch either. They do come with a good set of features that you can use to have the best possible experience. However, you do need to know that these features are mostly like RGB lighting and virtual surround sound. Something that you are not really going to get a lot of benefit from.

The winner here is Razer again, and we cannot really deny that. Sure, it does not provide you with a bucket load of features, but the features it does come with are really good and work really well, too.

Winner: Razer Nari Ultimate.


There is no denying that we have stressed over the comfort time and again and that is what we need to know the most about. The thing is that if you do not buy a pair of headphones that is comfortable, you might end up with less than impressive experience, which never is a good thing to have.

Both the Razer Nari Ultimate and the Cooler Master MasterPulse Pro come with extremely good comfort. As a matter of fact, they are padded properly, and offer a lot of comforts, too. You really do not have to worry about having issues with comfort. However, the material is not breathable, so that is a really important factor that you need to keep in mind.

I don’t have to rephrase this at all but the comfort level on both headphones is extremely well done, and you will not have any issues whatsoever.

Winner: Both.


I believe that whenever we are looking at a gaming headphone, one of the most important factors happens to be a good microphone. This is something that many people always overlook because they are not sure if they will be playing online or not. Which is justified because if you want to play online, you don’t really need to have a good microphone or any microphone at all.

Still, Razer has actually done a great job with their unidirectional microphone; can easily go inside the holster and you can take it out when you need to. Otherwise, it just stays in place, heled firmly, as well. So, you are never really in a situation where you won’t be having issues with the microphone adjustment.

The microphone on the MasterPulse Pro is omnidirectional; the reasoning behind this is something we don’t understand simply because when you are gaming and communicating, you want to make sure that the sound is only coming from one direction so there are no issues. Additionally, you also need to know that the microphone performance overall is not as promising.

When it comes to the overall microphone performance, the Razer Nari Ultimate wins easily.

Winner: Razer Nari Ultimate


I have to be honest, this comparison has bought me great joy simply because there was a time when Razer’s products were less than impressive. Things have changed so much and Razer is only doing better, with a promising future ahead.

It should not come as a surprise but Razer does win as far as the overall battle is concerned. The Razer Nari Ultimate is the ultimate gaming headphone that you should be looking to get for yourself.
