Improved ambidextrous ergonomics

Designed with extensive feedback from professional gamers, the Razer Taipan’s ambidextrous form suits a wide variety of grip styles and hand sizes. Whether you’re right-handed or a south-paw; use claw, palm or fingertip-grip, this mouse stays firmly in hand and comfortably so for extended periods of gaming.

8200dpi 4G Laser Sensor

The Razer Taipan is outfitted with the most advanced and configurable sensor yet, the all-new 8200dpi 4G laser sensor. It tracks so precisely, you always hit targets exactly where you need to. It can also be calibrated to your specific surface, and has adjustable cut-off to lift-off tracking, empowering you with more tournament-grade control than ever before.

Side buttons for more ways to kill

Whether you’re left- or right-handed, buttons have been strategically placed on either side of the Razer Taipan that can be easily programmed and actuated to execute any command, skill, macro to put you ahead of the competition.

It also is your one-stop destination to fine-tune your mouse to perfection, everything from lift-off tracking, to surface calibration, to enabling inter-device communication – any and every possible feature to tweak, is yours to play with. The Razer Taipan enables pro-gamers with competition-ready capabilities.



The Pro-Gamer's Choice

The Razer Taipan is the result of years of collaborative research with pro-gamers to pinpoint the optimal shape, weight, and balance for an ambidextrous mouse ready for the highest levels of tournament play.

Symmetry

Its symmetrical shape makes it viable for both right- and left-handers, comfortable and easily appealing to a wide range of gamers, of varying hand lengths, sizes, and grip-types. The narrow footprint and textured side grips makes it suitable for claw and fingertip users, while the arched back gives the necessary support for palm grip users.

Balance

Pick up a Razer Taipan and feel its light weight, perfect for low-sense gamers who need to execute fast, precise movements and lift their mouse often. The weight distribution of the mouse has also been optimized such that the centre of gravity works with the grip profiles of all the top eSports athletes.

Simplicity

You only need to take one look at the Razer Taipan's design to understand that this is the purest conception of a workhorse gaming mouse. It has no bells and whistles, its form feeds function - a device bred for one thing, and one thing only, winning.

How does the Razer
Taipan help?

I like so many different things about this mouse, from the reliable performance to the accurate tracking, but the comfort definitely takes the crown. I didn't think an ambidextrous mouse would be more comfortable than an ergonomic one, but Razer managed to nail it. The mouse is fairly light and I noticed my average score in games go up after switching. After daily use for several months, it still looks and performs like it is brand new.

ALL THE FEATURES

ARM 32-bit processor

 
 
The Razer Taipan is outfitted with a 32 bit ARM processor which means there’s a little computer onboard that is computing everything at an incredibly fast rate. The mouse is quite literally an extension of your hand when every movement you make, every function on the mouse you execute, is delivered instantaneously.

Scroll Wheel

 
 
Scroll wheels are just as important for going through lengthy websites and documents, as they are for gaming. Whether it is to scope, throw a grenade or zoom in on the battlefield, yours needs to be highly robust for heavy duty scrolling.

That’s why Razer mice scroll wheels can turn hundreds of millions of times in its lifespan, and be actuated with the exact same precision as a mouse button.
 

Hyperesponse buttons

 
 
From Razer’s very first gaming mouse to now, our mice buttons are designed to be hair-trigger sensitive. This means as soon as you think it, your finger has already mouse clicked it. Utilizing highly durable Omron switches, there is a pronounced tactile feedback to your fingertips with each actuation, so you get the absolute assurance that you’re winning with precision.
 

Green LED lighting

 
 
The Razer Taipan features bright green lighting on the mouse scroll wheel and Triple-Headed Snake logo.
 

Synapse 2.0

 
 
Synapse 2.0 is not just a standard mouse configurator. It’s packed with basic and advanced customizable features so your Razer Taipan works exactly the way you want it to.

Lift-off tracking

Low-sensitivity gamers who lift other mice may experience on-screen cursor jitter as mouse-to-surface tracking continues. This is a detriment to gamers who need absolute accuracy in their games, as the cursor being thrown off a target may mean the difference between winning and losing.

In the Razer Taipan, once the sensor has been calibrated to the surface, you can customize the height at which tracking is cut-off when the mouse is lifted. This ensures on-screen cursor jitter is reduced; so your aim stays dead-on target even as you move.

Surface calibration

By calibrating your Razer Taipan to a specific surface, it enables the sensor to record that surface’s color, topography, and other such properties. As variations on the surface are continuously detected as the mouse moves, it is compared to the original recording, allowing the sensor to react quicker and more accurately.

Unlimited profiles and other configurations

Every game is different and comes with its own set of control requirements. No longer limited by last generation onboard device memory, Razer Synapse 2.0 brings the brain of the Razer Taipan to the cloud, expanding the number of storable profiles and configurations to infinite, and allows for longer, more complex macros.

Inter-device communication

Pair two Razer peripherals for the ultimate gaming combo. You can temporarily change the sensitivity on your Razer mouse by holding down a button on your Razer keyboard, or quickly change keyboard profiles using the mouse scroll wheel, with customizable lighting reflecting these changes. Even create macros on your mouse and have it available on your keyboard, there is no limit to what you can do with the hive mind that is Razer Synapse 2.0.

What is Surround Sound?


Surround Sound describes the method of channelling sound that envelops the user in a 360 degree arc, positioning sound sources accurately in relation to the user. This is especially useful in multiplayer first person shooters where proper sound placement can help you identify friends, foes and situations within the environment. Audio devices produce two types of surround sound: Discrete or virtual.



Discrete


Using multiple speakers in a system or multiple audio drivers in each ear cup of the headset, positioned at different angles, discrete surround sound lets gamers hear audio in realistic 3-dimensions as they would in real life.

Discrete surround sound makes for immersive gameplay as it accurately represents how your character perceives the audio of the game world.

See Razer Tiamat 7.1

Virtual


Virtual surround sound can be found primarily in headphones that use only two drivers and complex audio processing algorithms to simulate the effect of having multiple audio drivers.

These headsets utilize internal or external amps and software engines to divide surround sound audio into distinct, separate segments, effectively reproducing a surround sound spectrum with just 2 drivers.
