Razer BlackShark V2 Pro – The Sound of eSports. Unleashed.
The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro takes the game-changing advances in audio and microphone technology found in the recently released Razer BlackShark V2 and improves upon them with a new microphone housing and additional speaker chamber. Powered by Razer HyperSpeed Wireless technology, the headset delivers lossless immersive audio for low-latency wireless gaming, with up to 24 hours of battery life and 12 meters of wireless range.
This wireless gaming headset uses the same Razer TriForce Titanium 50mm Drivers found on the non-pro version. According to Razer, the BlackShark V2 Pro delivers even brighter and clearer audio thanks to the additional speaker chamber. They also individually tuned high, mid, and low range frequencies for clearer trebles; a rich midrange and powerful bass.
Razer also complimented the BlackShark V2 Pro with THX Spatial Audio technology with Game Profiles. It offers “360-degree immersive audio that delivers a competitive edge to gamers”. Aside from the 50mm driver, the BlackShark V2 Pro features Razer’s all-new 9.9mm HyperClear Supercardioid Mic. This new mic is said to deliver ultra-clear voice quality for team comms, even in the heat of battle.
The BlackShark V2 Pro’s mic offers improved voice isolation, rejecting more ambient noise from the back and sides; increased sensitivity for a greater low-frequency response; and optimized housing for added clarity and accurate voice pick-up; ensuring that your teammates will hear every word you say.
For long play sessions and uninterrupted immersion, the BlackShark V2 Pro is lightweight yet durable at just 320g and has a closed earcup design with plush leatherette-lined ear cushions for excellent passive noise cancellation to block out unwanted external sounds.
It is also built with an ultra-soft memory foam ear cushions to greatly reduce the headset’s clamping force. The ear cushions and headband use FlowKnit fabric, a breathable weave that reduces sweat and heat build-up at the contact points.
