The Razer BlackShark V2 series just went official, with the BlackShark V2 and the BlackShark V2 X arriving in Malaysia. These two may look similar, but there are several differences to them that distinguish them from one another.
Razer BlackShark V2
No, this isn’t THAT Black Shark. The Razer BlackShark V2 series has a volume adjustment knob on the left side of the headphones. That is also where the boom microphone is located. For the drivers, they both have the Razer TriForce 50mm drivers, but only the Razer BlackShark V2 has the Titanium version. These headphones can also be used with any device that utilizes a 3.5mm audio jack.
What the BlackShark V2 has that the X variant doesn’t, is the inclusion of a USB sound card. This sound card enables THX spatial audio support, complete with virtual 7.1 surround sound. The microphone on the standard V2 is detachable, and its ear cushions use a breathable memory foam pad rather than a leathery textile on the X variant.
Aesthetics wise, the Razer logo on the standard V2 is green, whereas the X variant will have a shadow black Razer logo.
Pricing and Availability
The Razer BlackShark V2 and Razer BlackShark V2 X are now available in Malaysia, on the company’s official online store. The standard V2 will be priced at RM599, while the V2 X is priced at RM349, which is a great price, by the way.
