In our Razer Blackshark V2 review, we examined the excellent sound quality, comfortable design, and sturdy headset shape.
Blackshark V2 is by far the best headset ever made by Razer, offering similar models from Logitech and Steel Series.
Compatibility: PC, PS4, Switch (handheld), Xbox One
Drivers: 50 mm
Frequency Response: 12 Hz - 28 kHz
Hard to get a good fit
Not many THX-supported games
Razor Blackshark V2 packs brand-new tech, a lightweight design, and Razer quality and styling into a great value, exquisite PC offering.
I have used several Razer headsets, but Razer Blackshark V2 is the first headset I like. Although most Razer headphones are too bulky, inconvenient, too expensive, or a combination of the three, Blackshark V2 is a stylish and comfortable small peripheral that costs $100;of course, it is not cheap, but consider As far as it sounds, it’s not that expensive.
Blackshark V2 does almost everything well. Not only is it comfortable enough to wear for hours, but it also sounds great when playing games and listening to music. For selected games, Blackshark V2 even supports THX project profiles subtle3D and powerful soundscapes. As is the case with Razer hardware, the navigation of the software is a bit tricky, and I wish it were easier to get the headset to fit properly. But these are quibbles in what is otherwise one of the best gaming headsets you can buy.
Razer Blackshark V2: Features
The most prominent feature of Razer Blackshark V2 is the THX profile, but in addition to that, the headset has some benefits: First, it is a clear and precise microphone, and your filters out lots of noise. Please note that the microphone is silent by default, so you need to configure the pickup in the Razer Synapse software.
Blackshark V2 performed better than I expected. Although many gaming headsets make music dull and boring, the music soundscape has a certain depth. Both the Razer software and the THX protocol provide music modes and provide huge bass enhancement and a better balance between vocals and treble.
