“For gamers. By gamers.” – This is the most recent philosophy that Razer has adopted and seems to be fully embracing. With the 2023 update to their most popular esports headset, the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro, the gaming peripheral brand worked with not just one or two of the world’s top esports players but five of them, namely Hakis (Alliance), Shotzzy (OpTic Gaming), Dexter (MOUZ), Refsgaard (Ninjas in Pyjamas), and Stax (DRX).
The BlackShark V2 Pro is a wireless headset specifically designed for the most competitive gamer and for those who are deadset on making a name for themselves in the esports scene. These are the individuals who demand the best in terms of audio quality, noise isolation, performance and comfort, which Razer claims the multi-award-winning BlackShark V2 Pro can easily meet.
One of the major upgrades given to the BlackShark V2 Pro is the HyperClear Super Wideband Mic that provides high-definition and pro-level voice quality. This next-gen detachable mic is said to surpass the expectations for wireless headset mic performance and captures an astounding level of detail in gamers’ voices to ensure that every shot called is clear, rich and natural.
Secondly, by collaborating with the aforementioned esports players, gamers can now experience audio like the pros do with on-headset FPS audio profiles that provide maximum information for the ultimate competitive edge. Other than that, when paired with Razer’s Synapse app, you will be able to customise multiple profiles and save them directly to the headset so that you will always have your favourite settings with you wherever you go.
As a wireless headset, battery life is also incredibly important because no gamer wants to be interrupted midmatch by a low-battery warning. The 2023 BlackShark V2 Pro boasts up to triple the battery life of the last iteration, which translates to up to 70 hours of gameplay. Equipped with an updated Type-C connection, the headset will also get six hours of battery after just 15 minutes of charging.
Moreover, the build and comfort of the headset have also been improved. The headband and earcups are made with ultra-soft memory foam and breathable fabric to ensure optimal comfort even after long hours of use. Similar to all headsets in the BlackShark line, this headset features noise-isolating earcups that create an ideal seal to block out distractions.
Last but certainly not least, the BlackShark V2 Pro is equipped with Razer HyperSpeed Wireless technology that promises high-performance and low-latency 2.4 GHz wireless connection. To enhance and reinforce the wireless stability and range, the headphones come with a USB extender. The BlackShark V2 Pro also comes with Razer’s SmartSwitch on-device control that allows you to seamlessly switch between 2.4GHz or Bluetooth connections.
The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is available in a Black or White colourway and can be purchased via Razer.com, RazerStores and Authorised Resellers at a price of SGD324.90/MYR1,029 (USD199.99).
