The Razer Blackshark V2 Pro has successfully placed vocals at the front of every track I've listened to. The headset can even get so loud that I often remove it, leave it on my desk and listen to music like it's a speaker. Using Razer Synapse, you can edit your microphone settings. It has options for mic volume, whether or not it inherently has a voice gate.

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is an excellent wireless headset based on an excellent wired headset. It offers strong audio performance, an incredibly clear mic, and THX Spatial Audio, plus wireless connectivity.

Reviewers from rtings have found the following[***]:
The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro are adequate for neutral sound. They're comfortable enough to wear for long periods, and their over 23-hour continuous battery life can get you through long days on the go. Unfortunately, their bulky design isn't very portable, and they struggle to block out background noises like bus and plane engines or voices.

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is a fantastic wireless headset that'll work well for general gaming or anyone with esports aspirations.

Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is fantastic for those seeking a great wireless headset. The sound quality of the Razer Triforce drivers is premium, but you'll need to tweak the settings for the cans to really come into their own. Razer touts 24 hours of service on a charge, which was about right in my testing.

  • Powerful audio performance
  • Premium build quality
  • Solid mic
  • No battery percentage reading in software
