Razer's latest gaming headset is the BlackShark V2. Its 50 millimeter (mm) drivers feature the OEM's TriForce Titanium coating, as well as its SpeedFlex cable. It features THX Spatial Audio for an immersive experience and a removable cardioid mic with a USB sound card.

Razer's newest gaming headset is called, even in the face of a certain other sector of the gaming industry, the BlackShark V2. The peripheral features titanium-treated diaphragms for "TriForce" drivers that have separate zones to handle mids, trebles and bass, or so the OEM claims.

The BlackShark V2 also feature Razer's HyperClear cardioid mic, which is equipped with a USB sound card and can moreover be removed. Therefore, the headset has both a USB port and a 3.5mm audio jack. Its earcups are also possibly enhanced with "Ultra-soft FlowKnit memory foam". 

This new headset is now priced at US$99.99 on Razer's own store. Those with a little less of a budget for new gaming equipment may be relieved to learn there is a second variant of this device, the BlackShark V2 X. This version has the same 50mm drivers and TriForce technology as its more expensive sibling, although there is no titanium in evidence here.

The BlackShark V2 X set has 7.1 surround sound in place of THX; a cardioid mic but no USB card; and memory foam ear cushions but no fancy branding for them. This alternative costs $59.99 on Razer's website.
