An anti-fog coating is also applied. It also has a built-in microphone and amplifier to prevent your voice from being choked and difficult to hear.
In addition, the light inside the mask glows in the dark. Users can customize the lighting with the Razer Chroma RGB, which can illuminate suspiciously, including the perimeter of the fan.
