Razer BlackShark V2 Pro Headset

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is one of the best wireless gaming headsets on the market, delivering both high-quality, balanced audio and an excellent broadcast style microphone. The headset is made of lightweight but durable materials, and comes with simulated 7.1 surround sound for those looking for that feature. This is a truly marvelous gaming headset that justifies its price by being one of the best options out there.

Our Score

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is one of the best wireless gaming headsets on the market, delivering both high-quality, balanced audio and an excellent broadcast style microphone. The headset is made of lightweight but durable materials, and comes with simulated 7.1 surround sound for those looking for that feature. This is a truly marvelous gaming headset that justifies its price by being one of the best options out there.

Pros

  • High quality audio
  • Above average microphone
  • Great battery life
  • Wireless

Cons

  • Expensive
  • No Bluetooth
  • Microphone is too compressed

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is a wireless version of the BlackShark V2 headset. It is an esports-focused headset designed specifically for high-level online gaming, where precise and clear audio are key. It is worth its high price tag for gamers who are looking for a well-built wireless headset with top-tier features and excellent audio quality for both the headphones and the microphone.

The Razer™ TriForce Titanium drivers featured in this headset are quite decent, for both gaming and general purpose audio. They produce a very balanced sound, with roughly equal emphasis on the bass, mids, and highs. This is a nice change of pace compared to other headsets and headphones that put an overemphasis on the bass. The flat frequency response makes this headset delightful to use for a variety of purposes.

The headphones feature THX technology via THX Spatial Audio with 7.1 surround sound emulated using Razer’s Synapse 3 software. While spatial audio is little more than a gimmick for video games, where stereo audio will do just fine, the emulated surround sound feature can add some extra atmosphere to movies.

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro comes with the detachable HyperClear Supercardioid Mic. This microphone has a very compressed sound that won’t compete with a dedicated studio mic, but it is still well above average for a gaming headset microphone. One of the biggest advantages of this mic is its supercardioid pickup pattern, which helps eliminate unwanted background noise.  It’s perfect for in-game communication purposes, it just won’t be the best for voiceover or streaming work.

This headset can work in a wireless and a wired mode. For the wireless mode, you will need to use the included 2.4 GHz USB transmitter. You can also use a 3.5mm jack to connect this to a device. The battery life for this headset is about 24 hours, which is pretty decent for a headset this powerful. One of the downsides you will have to put up with, however, is that it charges using outdated micro USB plug. This isn’t the end of the world, but it’s 2021, when will we be rid of the cursed micro USB technology?

Build quality wise, this headset is pretty impressive. It manages to be flexible and light, while also remaining well-built and durable. Weighing in at only 320 grams, this headset can remain comfortable for extended periods of use. It features large memory foam ear cups, that while not particularly special, get the job done and are decently breathable.

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is a superb wireless headset that comes with all the features you might want in a professional grade gaming headset. They missed the mark in a couple of areas by forgoing Bluetooth connectivity and featuring an overly compressed microphone, but overall this headset gets high marks from me.
