Razer BlackShark V2 Gaming Headset Review

Razer is no stranger to gaming headsets, their Kraken line of headsets are very popular and some of the most well recognized headsets out there. While those headsets are great, they might be a little too big for some people. We’ve seen more midrange and lightweight headsets become more and more popular. I am honestly a huge fan of midrange headsets, they still offer great sound that you find in larger headsets, but they a much lighter and seem to be more comfortable for longer gaming sessions. Today I will be taking a look at the Razer BlackShark V2. The headset weighs in at only 262g, features 50 mm Titanium drivers, THX Spatial Audio, and much more! At only $99.99 is this the perfect gaming headset? Read on as we find out!
