Expert reviews and ratings
The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro takes the BlackShark V2’s excellent performance and makes it wireless, for a hefty premium.
The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is one of the best wireless gaming headsets for the PC. While its isolation isn’t as good as the wired BlackShark V2, it’s microphone improvements and solid wireless performance make the extra expense easy to justify.
The Razer Blackshark V2 Pro offers excellent sound and a reasonable amount of versatility at a fair price.

While we usually find the corded gaming headsets to be superior to the cordless model, the Razer Black Shark V2 Pro has come the closest to proving us wrong yet. This headset is our favorite wireless model by far, offering solid audio and microphone quality while being one of the most comfortable to wear.
It is the most well-rounded headset I’ve tested, with no major performance hitches – it is extremely comfortable and comes with excellent audio and a decent mic. Wireless performance is flawless too, and battery life should last you up to a week with moderate use. Top that off with a tasteful, all-black design, and Razer has made what may be one of the best gaming headsets of 2020.
The BlackShark V2 Pro is an exceptional wireless gaming headset matching its premium price point. The build caliber, sound quality and battery life are all praiseworthy despite some small issues. THX Spatial Audio enhances the audio experience significantly, becoming a huge feature. Too bad the required app adds even more to the cost and isn’t readily compatible with major devices.
The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro are decent for wireless gaming. They’re compatible with PCs as well as PS4 and PS5 consoles over a non-Bluetooth connection, and they have low latency. They’re comfortable enough for long gaming sessions, too. Their bass-heavy sound profile adds thump and punch to action-packed scenes, and if you prefer a different sound, there are a lot of customization options in the Razer Synapse software.

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro takes everything good about the BlackShark V2 and cuts the cord. Synapse software means you can tweak the sound just how you like it, and the 2.4 GHz wireless connection lets you walk away from your game while still jamming to the soundtrack. This understated headset puts in the work, but non-premium materials could hamstring it in terms of the competition.
