Razer has released the BlackShark V2 Pro, a “upgrade” to its popular BlackShark eSports game headset. This new version is called a “upgrade.”
Razer releases new mice, keyboards, laptops, and other game hardware on a pretty regular schedule. The BlackShark V2 Pro wireless gaming headset, which is its newest product, follows this pattern by improving on the BlackShark V2 Special Edition, which was its predecessor.
Since these are headphones, Razer’s main goal was to improve the sound, which makes sense. For “pro-level voice quality,” the V2 Pro uses a detachable, unidirectional Super Wideband microphone with a frequency response rate (the range of sounds that can be played back) between 100 Hz and 10 kHz.
Also getting a lot of attention is the audio output. Razer’s 50mm audio drivers offer strong sound and a 2.4 GHz wireless link for faster response times. The ear pads are made of noise-isolating memory foam for comfort and quiet, and THX Spatial audio is supported for fake surround sound.
The BlackShark V2 Pro also says that it can run for up to 70 hours on a single charge. It can be charged with a USB-C cable. You don’t have to use the headset with your PC, either. It can connect to PlayStations, mobile devices, and Android or iOS devices using either Bluetooth 5.2 or Type A 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi.
Starting today, you can buy the BlackShark V2 Pro straight from Razer in either black or white for $199.99. Razer also sells a Six Siege Special Edition for the same price, but right now it is on sale for $129.99.
