Razer BlackShark V2 Overview
The Razer BlackShark V2 has a medium profile so it is not overly large, but also not super small either. It weighs in at 262 g so definitely on the lighter side, but not a super-light headset. Honestly to me it feels like it has the perfect size and weight. The headset sort of has that aviator style, which is actually refreshing to see.
Razer has gone with an all-black design with the neon Razer green being used on the logo on the earcups and cabling connecting the two earcups. I really like this more subtle look compared to their other more flashy headsets. Also the headset does not feature any RGB lighting.
The headband features memory foam that is covered by a breathable mesh fabric. The memory foam actually goes across the entire headband, typically we only see it towards the center of headbands on gaming headsets. There is a Razer logo on the top of the headband.
The headset uses a retractable metal wire design to adjust the size of the headset. I wouldn’t say this is the strongest solution as I could see these getting bent, but overall they don’t seem cheap.
On the left earcup you’ll find a large volume knob, microphone mute button, a connection for the detachable microphone, and the attached audio cable. A little bummer that the cable cannot be removed from the headset.
The detachable microphone easily plugs right into the earcup. It is adjustable so you can move it around to the best position for you. Also included with the headset is t he USB sound card. This is a simple little USB device that has a single 3.5 mm connection on it for the headset.
Each earcup features 50 mm Titanium drivers. The earcups have more of an oval design, which again I do prefer over a typical circle design. Just like the headband you have memory foam that is covered in breathable fabric.
