Razer unveils its Lycosa keyboard and Piranha headset today, adding to its lineup of gamer-specific peripherals such as its impressive 4000dpi Razer 3G mouse teased last summer and shipping this month. The wicked-looking Lycosa keyboard has illuminated nonslip rubber keys and a 1000Hz polling rate that the company says takes just 1ms to respond to your input. That's quick. Take a look at the badass Piranha headset, after the jump.

The Razr Piranha headset also carries on that illuminated theme with its eerie blue backlit muffs, making it a matched set with the Lycosa keyboard. The USB headset has a noise-canceling mic hanging off the left earcup, giving your voice clarity even in the noisiest frag session. There's also an in-line mute button for the mic as well as a volume control.

The Lycosa keyboard will ship next month for $79.99, while the Piranha headset rolls out this month, also for $79.99. [Razer]
