Razer has launched the Razer BlackShark V2, a new esports headset featuring the all-new Razer TriForce Titanium 50mm Drivers, Razer HyperClear Cardioid Mic with USB Sound Card, advanced passive noise cancellation, and with THX Spatial Audio’s new Game Profiles.
Designed and tested in conjunction with some of the world’s top esports athletes, the Razer BlackShark V2 aims to address key areas identified by pros where esports headsets needed to improve – positional audio, clarity of communications and noise cancellation.
The Razer BlackShark V2 is equipped with an all-new, patented 50mm driver, the Razer TriForce Titanium. Using titanium-coated diaphragms, the TriForce Titanium drivers separate the audio frequencies and allow for the individual tuning of the high, mid and low ranges.
The TriForce Drivers are complemented by THX Spatial Audio – a positional audio solution for pinpoint accuracy and lifelike, immersive in-game sound that is compatible with stereo, 5.1 and 7.1 sources.
The THX spatial algorithms and world modelling technology, combined with user-customization options, deliver a 360-degree soundscape tuned to each player’s ears.
clear communications in the heat of battle are the key to victory, so for the BlackShark V2, Razer developed the HyperClear Cardioid Microphone with USB Sound Card.
The HyperClear Cardioid Mic has been tuned for a more focused voice pick-up area, eliminating sounds from the back and sides for speech clarity. The open housing design of the removable microphone offers minimal pick-up interference for a more accurate capture and recreation of your voice.
The additional USB Sound Card provides advanced microphone controls for even further tuning. It also has features such as Mic Boost, Voice Gate, Volume Normalization, Microphone Equalizer and Ambient Noise Reduction, which will allow players to customize their voice output to minimize the noise from their surroundings interfering with crucial team communications.
The BlackShark V2’s full-ear enclosing design of the oval ear cups, surrounded by a plush leatherette-lined foam cushion, is designed to form a consistent seal between the headset and the wearer’s head, providing passive noise-cancellation and minimizing intrusive external sounds.
Using an ultra-soft breathable memory foam, the ear cushions also minimize heat build-up and perspiration, for comfort even in long, intense play sessions.
A soft, well-padded headband over a lightweight stainless-steel frame ensures a flexible and extremely durable design with minimal head clamping at just 262g.
With its wired 3.5mm audio jack connection, the Razer BlackShark V2 is compatible with any 3.5mm jack enabled device, including PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and many mobile devices. However, the additional USB Sound Card is compatible with Windows 10 PCs only.
The Razer BlackShark V2 is now available from Razer.com and authorized resellers for $99.99 USD / €109.99 MSRP.
