Razer Balckshark V2

Razerthink – As a gaming headset, the Razer Balckshark V2 has a reasonably simple design. This is also not too different when compared to non-gaming headset designs. The gaming headset that will be reviewed here is the Razer Blackshark V2 which is equipped with a USB Sound Card so that it promises better sound when playing games when compared to a conventional 3.5 mm port. Read on to find out how it performs.

The overall impression of this gaming headset symbolizes Razer’s products. As a gaming headset, the Razer Blackshark V2 doesn’t have a design that’s too big. The Razer Blackshark V2 is also not too different when compared to non-gaming headset designs. The small pair of metal frame joints between the driver unit and the headband makes it look relatively compact.

However, the driver connecting wires on the left and right cups are not inside the little metal. This cable looks across to the driver unit.which is green, so it contrasts with the black colour of the headset. The metal connecting mechanism is adjustable in length, and the cable is flexible in size.

The mechanism is accessible enough to allow for adjusting the size of the head.

The sliding mechanism to change this is not too hard, so it’s easy to do. On the other hand, the sliding joint between the metal and the driver unit will not easily slide on its own when worn. The earpads feel comfortable to use. They are equipped with very soft and absorbent material. If you are a person who wears glasses, these earpads will adjust the stem of the glasses. Thus the forehead will not be too depressed and can avoid discomfort.

The headset’s more granular controls and additional features.like surround sound, are handled by Razer Synapse 3, the company’s universal (sort of) companion app. Synapse works well enough—the latest iteration of the app is better laid out than most gaming headset apps, but it’s still a little clunky, similar to pretty much every other app like it.

The software lets you customize your EQ and mic settings, and soon after launch, it will include a suite of THX-tuned game profiles to tailor your sound to games like Apex Legends, Valorant, and more. These features are nice to have, but you won’t miss much if you skip Synapse, especially if you’re not interested in games that use surround sound





From the outset, it’s clear that the Razer Balckshark V2 isn’t your typical gaming headset, opting for a more sophisticated look characterized by its matte black and wired metal construction. The Razer Blackshark V2 is lighter and a bit less bulky than Razer’s Kraken and Nari headsets.  The signature big, circular earcups are gone, replaced by more conventional oval earcups with black plastic shells. While it’s certainly sturdy and well built, I can’t help but think it’s missing the usual looks that gamers might crave.

Razer’s usual design cues of voluminous padding, RGB lighting, and the standard bulk that other headsets have (like their famed Kraken line) are notably absent from the Razer BlackShark V2, but this isn’t such a bad thing. The earpads are soft memory foam covered in breathable fabric, with matching fabric-covered padding on the headband’s underside (the headband’s top side is faux leather).

Because the headset is so light and breathable, it’s pretty comfortable to wear even on more oversized heads and is suitable for extended gameplay sessions. Going for a more straightforward design with minimalistic colouring means the Razer BlackShark V2 has been designed with not just the hardcore gamer in mind.

Compared to its competitors.

one of the first things to note about the Razer BlackShark V2 is the distinct lack of padding. The padding that is present makes them nice and soft, especially around the headband. But they feel a little bit lose – even with the headband on its tightest setting. Something a little bit snugger would’ve been better.

There’s only a couple of onboard media controls, which are certainly easy to access, given the size of the protruding volume knob out of the left earcup, and a small but tactile mute button. A six-foot, fabric-wrapped cable is permanently attached to the bottom of the left earcup and terminates in a 3.5mm plug. A port in front of the cable accepts the removable boom microphone, a foam-covered capsule on a flexible metal arm.

As is traditional with headsets these days. A mute mic button sits right behind the headset cable, and a large volume dial sits on the back panel of the earcup (the volume works separately from your device’s volume levels). Even with a more plastic construction than the headphones themselves, the mic’s build quality is still good. The permanently connected cable is a bit of a disappointment, as a removable cable is much easier to replace than an entire headset.

The Razer Blackshark V2 comes with a 7.1-channel USB sound card, which is downright tiny. The card is a 1.75-by-0.6-inch (HW) rectangular plastic module on a short, two-inch fabric-wrapped cable that terminates in a USB plug. A green LED on the module indicates when it’s plugged in and functioning, and a 3.5mm headset port sits on the end opposite the USB cable. The headset also comes with a black fabric drawstring carrying bag.

This headset connects wirelessly to a 2.4 GHz USB-C dongle that can be plugged into various devices. The dongle has a small black rectangular body perpendicular to the USB-C plug, letting it stay flush with your phone or Switch. It appears to be automatically paired with a headset.
