Can The Remake Outdo The Original?
The original BlackShark is a few years old now, an analogue stereo headset with noise cancellation and a unique looking microphone boom. Razer have renewed it with a second version, the BlackShark V2 for $100 which is $30 less than the original. It keeps the analogue connection, with a USB sound card added to this addition to give you more control over your mic and audio if you connect via USB. The mic boom has also been replaced with a more traditional one.
As far as the technical specifications go, it offers a frequency response range of 12 Hz–28 kHz and impedance of 32 Ω @ 1 kHz, customized 50mm drivers, and a unidirectional mic. They kept the Flowknit memory foam ear cushions, which are not just comfortable, but fit well enough to offer passive noise cancellations.
For testing KitGuru got their hands on the THX Game Profiles directly from Razer, they will be publicly available on August 6th if you are looking to pick up the headset. Pop by for a look at their full review.
Today we are back with a look at a brand new headset from Razer, the BlackShark V2. The original version released years ago and proved popular at the time, so the updated model certainly has big shoes to fill.
