The Razer BlackShark V2 has a retail price of US$99.99/€109.99 while the BlackShark V2 X retails for US$59.99/€69.99.

Razer has once again teamed up with THX and resurrected a name from the its past. First released back in 2012, the aviation-inspired BlackShark gaming headset is making a return. The Razer BlackShark V2 esports gaming headset comes in two variations and is targeting the esports gamers with all-new Razer TriForce 50mm drivers.

Both the Razer BlackShark V2 and the more affordable BlackShark V2 X also include leatherette memory foam ear cushions, plush headband padding, the Razer HyperClear Cardioid Mic, advanced passive noise cancellation, and cross-platform compatibility with its 3.5mm jack. The BlackShark V2, however, takes things up a notch with its USB Sound Card, THX Spatial Audio, and TriForce Titanium 50mm drivers.

Making its debut in the Razer BlackShark V2, the Razer™ TriForce Titanium 50mm drivers feature an all-new patented design that divides the audio driver into 3 distinct parts for the individual tuning of highs, mids, and lows. Traditional drivers tune across frequencies using the same section of the audio driver, which often results in muddy sound. Like having 3 drivers in 1, the dedicated tuning ports in the Razer™ TriForce Titanium 50mm drivers allow for brighter, clearer audio with richer trebles and more powerful bass.
