Razer Blackshark V2 Pro is the best combination of price, sound quality and flexibility available. Wireless connectivity means latency becomes a non issue, but it does come at the slight expense of flexibility. Memory foam cushioning on the cups both passively block out noise and ensure that the headset can be comfortably worn for extended periods – although it can get a bit hot in summer.

The Razer Blackshark V2 Pro is a solid headset boasting clear audio that gets loud without sacrificing sound quality. Although it possesses a sleek, comfortable design with a good microphone and volume knob, my experience with its USB connectivity has been less than perfect. Whenever I leave my small room, the headset beeps incessantly due to its low signal range.

Sentiment Score[*] 82%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is a PC headset, with a USB shaped receiver that works with Windows 10 PCs. The headset includes a fabric-wrapped 3.5mm cable for wired use, so it works with any current game console (or computer, or mobile device with a headphone jack) That said, the wired connection disables the THX surround sound and, obviously, removes any wireless convenience. We recommend serious users consider getting a dedicated USB microphone.

  • Comfortable fit
  • Supports Windows 10 PCs

  • Requires a wired connection

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro are passable for mixed usage. They have a bass-heavy sound profile, but you can easily customize them using Razer Synapse software. The V2 have a more neutral sound profile out-of-the-box, but both headphones come with a graphic EQ so you can customize the sound.
