These speakers look more like webcams than speakers.

Razer has been full of announcements during CES. It has unveiled a new wirelessly-powered mouse, the prototype Project Linda and now, a announced a new trio of speakers.

The Nommo line of speakers includes the Nommo, Nommo Chroma and the Nommo Pro. The Nommo and Nommo Chroma are wind turbines raised speakers with 3-inch glass fibre drivers (one per speaker). The Nommo Pro also includes a subwoofer.

The base model has a 3.5mm headphone and aux import port and the Chroma and Pro models also offer USB audio input. The pro model is Bluetooth 4.2 enabled and also has an optical connection.

All versions of the Nommo require a free USB port on your device, Windows 7/Mac OSX 10.9 or higher, an Internet connection (for first-time setup) and 100MB of hard disk space. The Nommo comes with information guides, a 3.5mm audio cable and the speakers. The Nommo Pro includes a subwoofer.

The Nommo has a THX Premium Audio certification however, Razer owns THX and has given a surprising number of its own devices certification. Take that as you will.

Both the Nommo Chroma and Nommo Pro have Razer's Chroma RGB lighting and can be controlled using Razer Synapse.

The Nommo starts at US$99.99, the Nommo Chroma costs US$149.99 and the Nommo Pro sets you back a whopping US$499.99, a whole US$330 more than Logitech's top of the line Z625 system (and the Z625 also happens to be THX Certified). No word yet on Australian pricing, but worldwide release is set for January (apart from the Nommo Pro), so we won't have to wait long to find out.
