The Razer Banshee is a high-end gaming headset designed specifically for use with the Starcraft II PC game. The Banshee features a circumaural ear-cup design with sound isolation/noise cancellation support; and also includes an integrated and fully detachable mic boom for communication with teammates and cohorts.

The Razer Banshee gaming headset is part of Razer's Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty gaming peripheral line which includes the Razer Spectre gaming mouse, the Razer Marauder Gaming keyboard, and the Razer Banshee audio Headset. All devices in the Razer Wings of Liberty line are adorned with the unique Starcraft 2 logo and light blue themed LED indicator lights. The Razer Banshee headset is equipped with a unique APM lighting system which allows the integrated LED lights to change colors in relation to certain in-game alerts. Razer claims this LED alert system improves both the overall aesthetic and mutual contribution of the device. This APM or Action Per Minute LED system is included in the matching keyboard (Marauder) and mouse (Spectre) gaming peripherals as well.

The Razer Banshee audio headset also includes integrated volume and mic level controls on the device, 8 preset equalizer settings, and a completely portable body design for easy travel.
