The Razer Blackshark v2 is the cheaper version of the Blackshark v2 Pro. The only difference between the two is that the v2 is wired while the v2 Pro is wireless. Also, the v2 is of course cheaper.
Razer is such an amazing brand and I couldn’t say it enough. I appreciate how they make the headset so that it satisfies all their customers. With the v2 everything is put together so delightfully that it feels like the headset was custom to me, and my likings. From the soft ear cushions to the magnificent sound that comes through everything was up and beyond my preferences.
The ear cushions alone sold me on the headset. They are plush and have a honeycomb design allowing air to pass through. The clamping force is low enough to prevent too much pressure but enough to keep the headsets on.
The sound came through smoothly along the way and there were no issues with it whatsoever. My only concern is that the durability is relying on four thin brackets that didn’t concern me at the time but later down the road it can make it seem a little skeptical.
The microphone stood out as it was bigger than any microphone I had ever seen. However, that made for one of the best microphones that I have ever used. This headset is unforgettable in the sense that if someone were to ask what was your favorite headset, or what headset would you recommend? I bet one of the first ones that would come to mind is this one.
Even though this headset sits right at the 100 Dollar mark I would still say that this is the best gaming headset under 100 dollars.
