Razer blackshark v2 pro

Razerthink – When it comes to competitive gaming, the need for the best device is not only for the mouse or keyboard. A qualified audio product is equally important, considering that playing games is an activity that prioritizes not only a visual response but also an audio response. This time I will review one unit of the Razer Blackshark V2 Pro gaming headset. In your opinion, how good is this headset dubbed as “The Sound of Esports”?

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro offers several premium features alongside excellent build quality for the price.

Consumers who like competitive gaming or those looking for the highest level of audio quality for a more immersive experience. By offering a wireless version on the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro. It looks, feels, and sounds as good, if not slightly better, than the wired BlackShark V2, only cordless. However, at $179.99, it costs almost twice as much as the BlackShark V2.

No matter the price, quality always comes first – and frankly, the company has never disappointed in this massively. This trend continues with the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro, the product Razer has positioned as its definitive esports headset. It’s a bold claim, but one that is more than substantiated by what is, frankly, excellent gear for both hardcore and casual gamers.





The Razer Blackshark V2 Pro looks almost precisely like the Editor’s Choice award-winning Razer Blackshark V2, only without the cables. It has the same oval matte black plastic earmuffs connected to the headband via Y-shaped support made of rigid wire. With a cylindrical mount that allows each cup to slide freely up and down to adjust its fit.

It has the same memory foam earpads wrapped in breathable fabric. As well as the same memory foam-lined cushioning on the bottom of the headband with faux leather on the top. This results in a lightweight and comfortable garment that is easy to wear for extended gaming.

In terms of inputs and connections

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro maintains a minimalist feel. You’ll find the information for charging the headset via USB next to the two buttons for muting the microphone and turning the headset on or off. The microphone itself is detachable, meaning you can take it out when you’re not involved in online multiplayer for a better fit.

The boom microphone is a foam-coated capsule mounted on a flexible black metal arm and looks almost identical to the Razer BlackShark V2 microphone. Razer provides an upgrade, however, with the company’s 9.9mm HyperClear Supercardiod microphone. The headset has a larger capsule than the microphone on the Razer BlackShark V2 and rejects more outside noise, according to Razer.




Connectivity and Software

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is a PC headset with a USB-shaped receiver that works with Windows 10 PCs and above. Using Razer’s Synapse software enables THX Spatial Audio processing. It comes with a cloth-wrapped 3.5mm cable for cable use, so it works with today’s game consoles or computers, or mobile devices with headphone jacks.

The Razer Blackshark V2 Pro provides access to a 10-band EQ with several presets.

Along with separate, tweakable Bass Boost, Sound Normalization, and Voice Clarity features. The microphone gets its own EQ, along with other improvements like Volume Normalization, Vocal Clarity, and Ambient Noise Reduction. Synapse also enables THX Spatial Audio and lets you adjust the surround effect calibration by moving virtual speakers around your head. You can enable THX manually for every app and game you open that has sound, let the software automatically determine which mode to use, or disable THX Spatial Audio altogether. Even if there are no RGB lights to program, like on the Kraken Ultimate, the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro can last up to 24 hours on a charge and has a range of nearly 40 feet.

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro’s microphone is excellent; recordings sound crisp and clean, without the slightest bit of blur or noise, which works well for streaming, recording, and podcasting.



For music, the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro offers substantial power and a solid bass response. Bass notes come out with a definite bang, though not low enough to make you think you’ve got a subwoofer strapped to your head. Even at maximum (and unsafe) volume levels, the headset does not distort.

The opening acoustic guitar strum has a strong resonance and gets a bit of string texture, but not much finesse in the higher frequencies to bring out the plinking. When the track gets in the right, the bass gets a lot of presence, while the vocals and drums manage to share the spotlight right behind it.


Gaming with the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is just as good as its predecessor. The headset is a little heavier—because of the battery, no doubt—but even after hours of gameplay sessions, it’s still comfortable. Played on PC, the THX Spatial Audio option works fine.

In terms of drivers, this headset uses the same 50mm TriForce Titanium option found on the previous BlackShark V2 model, and as such, you can expect the same level of quality with a decent mix of treble and bass.

They pack a severe punch over all areas, trying to nail down enemy footsteps in a heated Call of Duty game: Warzone. A titanium-coated diaphragm has been implemented to improve vocal clarity. whether it’s coming from teammates in-game or essential characters in a sprawling RPG. Everything sounds crystal clear, and noise-canceling allows for sound elements that would otherwise be lost to distractions.

The sound that the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro produces.

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro generally features accurate audio output throughout the midrange, emphasizing bass response up to around 200Hz.

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro has average isolation for a gaming headset. It will do well in most home situations, but considering that its predecessor, the Razer Blackshark V2, was the best in its class in this regard, it isn’t enjoyable.

Razer Blackshark V2 Pro Battery

Razer claims the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro’s battery will last up to 24 hours on a single charge, and we found that to be mostly true. Many people have tested that the headset lasts 24 hours, 40 minutes on a single order with a consistent output of -75dB. Synapse also offers a sleep mode feature that will turn off the headset after a period of inactivity. More than 24 hours is already a great result, but you may find it lasts longer than that.
