Enough_Dance_956 shared on a Reddit post, “Hello to everyone who sees this. I’m trying to get a hold of someone at Razer to thank them with all my heart. Wednesday morning at 10:30 am a stray bullet went through my window and hit the Razer headphones on top of my head. If it wasn’t for the headphones made with good quality I would’ve been a dead kid at the age of 18. I couldn’t even imagine all the pain my family and friends would’ve been through.”

The Razer Community Team got in touch with the user and responded. “Your Razer fam is extremely glad to know that you’re safe! Sent you a message so we can take care of your concern. Let’s continue from there.”

Min Lian-Tan, Founder and CEO of Razer, also responded to the post, saying, “Whoa – that’s crazy. Glad you’re OK!”
