  1. Joseph D. Land

    Me encantó el material, se sienten bastante bien y creo que podría decir que de alta gama, el cancelamiento de ruido es muy bueno, y son cómodos, en un inicio sentí como que me apretaban un poco, y después de 3 horas me los tuve que quitar, pero haciendo pausas son mucho más llevaderos.

    La batería les dura bastante, al menos unos 3 días de uso constante, y el rango wireless es de unos 3-4 m con muros.

    El sonido thx en la juegos me gustó mucho, yo los recomiendo bastante.

    Y en color blanco contrastan muy bien con mi setup.

    First I want to preface by saying I just tested this for an hour at time of writing, but I will update after 30 days. This is my first Razor headset ever as I steered clear because of build quality, but this headset won me over…

    Pros:
    -Best sound I have had on a wireless (gaming) headset and I have plenty, this is right under the steelseries arctis pro wireless which I did have for a test.
    -Good build quality and the metal hinges are super tight, some have had loose fitting ones, mine did not have those.
    -comfort, this is comparable to my arctis 7 2019 with brainwavz. I am going to mod some brainwavz on these too. The earpads are fine for most people stock though.
    -mic quality is very good, maybe the best I have heard on a wireless set, but this also leads to a small con as well which I will cover below.
    -razor synapse is good, I jumped in and set a v eq and then tested the gaming preset which was good also. Very good customizing here, gotta have an adjustable eq for me before I’m buying it.
    -battery life, TBD but it is very loud and advertises 20+ hours. No problems with it being quiet on pc and Ps5.
    -clarity is superb and thx is very good for my purposes.
    Cons
    -it did not clip sound (distort) until I pre-amped it, but it really isn’t needed. It did clip sound on ps5 if I maxed the USB up, but leave it at 90% and you should be good.
    -mic is a huge one, it’s a cardioid style mic and it is pretty big, but it does have very good quality once dialed in with Synapse.
    -no THX on ps5, but 3d sound works just fine. On PC this is very high end sound imo as this can hit some really good kHz 28k and is near Hifi.
    -no USB C and is only micro USB, just a small gripe, not deducting from what this headset does.
    -will work on Xbox only if wired, but the 3.5mm cable Razor supplied is a nice braided L cable.
    -volume knob is huge, but that’s aesthitics which is fine for most.

    Overall: If you have the money to spend a little more than 100 I would get this if your primary use is Pc/Ps5. This headset stomps the pulse 3d wireless and is better than my Arctis 7 2019 for my purposes of use. This will work wired as well, but I have not tested on Xbox. I will update after 30 days of use. Razor has made an exceptional headset here and this is going to be between Arctis 7 and this being my daily driver. Btw, I have large ears and this is still over the ear for me and is super comfy.

    Update Feb 4th: battery life, sound and comfort is still great. It sounds great wired on my series X using DTS sound unbound. The drivers have broke in a little bit and battery life is around 24 to 25 hours at about 65% volume. These get as loud as my gen3 A50’s. Build quality should be fine as I don’t see any failure points for my use and I baby these and keep them on a headset holder. These are still 5 star for me.
    Update 03/09/2021:
    The Blackshark V2 Pro is still working fine and I have used this on my Series X (wired), PS5 (wired and wireless), and pc (wired and wireless). Battery life has been around 23 to 24 hours as the volume is kept around 70%. Mic has been fine when used on all platforms and the comfort after these have broken in is second only to my Arctis 7, which both are close in comfort. Nothing faulty and build has held up very well. I will say that it is a pain to change earpads, but other than that it’s still a very good headset.

    I’m writing this review from the perspective of somebody who loved the Hyper X Cloud II’s, unfortunately my pair had stopped working during a gaming session one night, I had the pair for a good 5 years before this happened so I can say I definitely got my money’s worth, if it weren’t for them dying I never would have made the switch to the Blackshark v2 Pro in all honestly.

    What I was looking for in a pair of headphones:

    When I was shopping for a new pair I was looking for a wireless pair, the one thing the Hyper X Cloud II’s doesn’t provide. The cord on the Cloud II’s is very long, it would often get tangled in my chair which I believe ultimately ended up causing the pair to die in the long run, so with my new pair I wanted to eliminate the cord without sacrificing anything crucial.

    Footsteps:

    Most gamers will agree how important hearing footsteps in-game can be, that was the main thing I was worried about when I made the decision to buy this headset. The Hyper X Cloud II’s execute this perfectly, every foot step is heard and it’s crystal clear, there is no confusion of where the enemy is coming from and it’s not disorienting. Fortunately I have had no issue’s, confusion or disorientation well listening for footsteps with these headphones so far and I don’t think I’ve lost any ability to listen to enemies in game. This alone makes the purchase feel worth it for me personally.

    Bass:

    I’ve seen other reviewers stating that there is more emphasis and focus on bass and I do agree with this, it’s most evident when you play a game you’re very familiar with, for me that would be CS:GO. When I first loaded the game I could hear the difference just from the loading screen, at first I was slightly worried it would be overwhelming and to much bass that drowns out key elements of the game. I played a single game and can say that is not the case. It is more “bass focused” but it doesn’t drown out other elements of the game. For example, if somebody is shooting a gun you can really hear the bass in the gun shots, but when somebody runs up behind you it’s still very evident and clear where they are coming from and that they are approaching you. In terms of music and media, everything sounds good in my opinion, mids and highs don’t sound tinny. Simply just more emphasis on bass.

    Sound Isolation:

    Another element reviewers have been mentioning is that the sound isolation is poor, I understand where they’re coming from but I have to disagree. I think they do a great job with sound isolation with these headphones. When I first tried them on I could still hear myself typing, but the second you’re in-game, or have music playing it prevents you from hearing all the outside noise. The Hyper X Cloud II’s did a better job at sound isolation, but the difference from those headphones to the Blackshark V2’s is barely noticeable. You have to be really nit picking to notice that. In-game there is no distraction from outside sounds, listening to music I feel completely isolated, the only time I could notice a difference is well watching YouTube/Media where there is breaks in the sound, or low points where there isn’t much going on, but during a heated moment in game I can’t see myself or others getting distracted from outside noise due to “poor isolation”.

    Comfort:

    As for comfort I haven’t had them long enough to really determine if they keep up with the Cloud II’s in this department, but initial thoughts I think they will. I’ve used them for a few hours and there’s no soreness, or aching yet. These feel a lot more light weight than the Cloud II’s, build quality feels up to par with them as well, these feel like a solid pair of headphones that will last me many years, and many long night gaming sessions.

    Overall I think they’re good headphones so far. They ticked all my box’s/needs in a pair of headphones. I will say I don’t think they’re worth $250. If you are looking to purchase these headphones I’d recommend waiting for a sale of some sort. If you’re buying on a budget don’t get these, they are not worth $250 and I would HIGHLY recommend Hyper X Cloud II’s. If you’re looking for wireless headphones that will compete with your wired headphones then I do recommend these for you. I think it really depends what you’re looking for in headphones to determine if these are worth it or not. For me, it’s worth it. For others I can see why they’re disappointed or not pleased with their purchase. Really determine what you’re looking for before purchasing, as you might be left feeling disappointed with your decision.

    Another Update: If you are noticing that these headphones sound lousy on your PC, muddy mid tones and non crisp audio, simply uninstall Razer Synapse and they will sound SO much better. I spent hours fiddling around with the EQ settings and I could never get them right even though they sound fantastic on my PS5. By uninstalling Synapse and just running these direct from the USB dongle, they sound so much more clear and crisp.
    Also, if you’re using windows, download Dolby atmos and just keep it on the default settings. I found that gives the most crisp, full, 3d audio that sounds fantastic

    You can use Dolby Atmos through windows if you want to tweek the sound and get 3D audio and it even has an EQ so you have the best of both worlds. This should dramatically improve the audio quality

    Update: had these things for a few months and I still love them! They work great on my PS5 as well as my PC although it can get a little difficulty finding the right EQ settings and changes to them will drastically improve or degrade the sound. All in all, five out of five product
    —-
    These things are amazing! I was looking for a good pair of wireless headphones that were compatible with the 3D sound on my PS5. With the included dongle, these things are basically just plug and play; both my PS5 and PC effortless and quickly recognize the headphones when they are turned on.

    I’m not an audiophile, but audio in music and games is important to me. These things really shine especially at this price point and the fact that they are wireless. When I first tested them on my PS5, I wasn’t blown away with the 3D audio, until I switched by to my old but high quality sanheauser headphones. WOW what a difference in audio quality and spatial awareness.

    As with any good headphones, you’re not getting the most out of them if you’re not properly equalizing them. The headphones come with decent presets (on the synapse PC app) but I’ve included a better equalization in the picture. Switch between the default preset and this and you will really hear how well these headphones can shine with proper equalization. Very clear tones with rich bass!

    The headphones are high quality. They do have a light grip on your head and and they will move around on your head, but for a person who wears glasses this is a good thing since they dramatically increase the comfort level and reduce the change of your glasses causing pressure points. The material on the headphones is a little spongy to finger prints but not a big deal.

    The only thing that makes me nervous is the USB dongle situation. I would really like to order an extra dongle since I hope to take these between my PC and my PS5, so I worry if i lose this I will be out of luck. I bought a third party usb dongle but I can’t connect them, so I think you are stuck with the factory Razer dongle that doesn’t seem easy to replace. Not a negative, just a small drawback. I would feel much better if I could either buy a replacement dongle on razers website (you can’t at the moment) or have the ability to connect to a third party dongle

    For 170, these seem like a screaming deal. It’s so much nicer playing on my PC now with fewer wires and they sound as good if not better than my wired headphones. I’d highly recommend these

    Tras 9 meses de uso puedo decir que son de los mejores audifonos que existen, son comodos y tienen un buen audio, en cuanto al THX SPATIAL AUDIO no puedo decir que sea la gran cosa porque solo es un filtro de audio que aumenta o disminuye el sonido de los deciveles con el que se escucha y el audio 3D es muy bueno, si bien solo juego CSGO y Minecraft en PC puedo saber todo lo que ocurre. Se logra escuchar una pequeña estatica cuando el sonido de los audifonos esta al minimo en la rueda de los mismos asi como tambien si esta al maximo, por ello recomendaria utilizarlos con la rueda a la mitad a menos de que no puedan subir el volumen de otra manera. Con el tiempo y los meses el bajar y subir las orejeras se vuelve mas ligero y eso no es muy bueno, las almohadillas se gastan con el tiempo y se vuelven mas suaves pero no se da cuenta uno hasta que ve uno que tenga almohadillas nuevas.
    El microfono solo lo he utilizado en caso de emergencia y se agradece bastante que sea remobible debido a que de esa forma es demasiado facil comer sin ensuciar nada.
    La bateria si dura aproximadamente las 18 horas que RAZER promete, aunque yo recomendaria cargar los audifonos cada que se pueda y configurarlos para que se apaguen de manera automatica despues de 15 minutos. El software no es necesario usarlo debido a que se guarda en la memoria de los audifonos a no ser de que se quiera utilizar THX SPATIAL AUDIO pero yo no lo recomiendo.
    La conectividad si es un tema a mejorar debido a que despues de un tiempo los audifonos se empiezan a desconectar automaticamente si no esta colocado el USB en la manera correcta y los audifonos esten cerca, de igual forma se desconecta pero uno se puede acostumbrar con el tiempo.
    En consola no los he usado demasiado pero funcionan a la perfeccion y los problemas de conectividad desaparecen.
    Lo unico que si no me agrada en nada es que al conectar los audifonos en otro puerto USB diferente al que se conecto aparecen como otro sistema de audio y se configuran con un 100% de volumen. Esto no desaparece si se coloca un multipuertos.
    En cuanto a los cables que tiene, cuenta con un USB para cargarlo y un 3.5mm que es demasiado corto, personalmente pienso que es demasiado corto a diferencia de su version cableada

    Big upgrade over my previous headset. Great for just about anything including gaming and listening to music.
