When you pick up the headset the first thing you notice is just how light it is. It feels somewhat solid, but also it's clear that this is not a headset that prioritized premium materials. It's also extremely comfortable because of how light it is. Although I've never had issues with heavier headsets and neck pain, if that is a consideration the light materials should be great for long term sessions.
The pads are faux leather on the interior ring and exterior ring. The part that rests against your head feels like something a little more breathable. I don't think I will have any issues wearing these for long sessions. The clamping force is a good moderate level where they won't fall off accidentally, but I don't feel like I am in a death grip.
I made some calls using the mic and, I believe this to be a great compliment to the quality of the mic, no one thought I was on a headset. "It's like you were actually talking through your phone." Although they have a gamer vibe, I could definitely see using these on conference calls (as long as the video was off.) Basically, the mic is great.
Here's where I was expecting things to fall apart, but they really didn't. I decided to make a completely unfair comparison between these and my pair of Sennheiser HD600s run off of an AudioQuest DragonFly Black DAC/AMP. There was clearly no contest between the two headphones in terms of vocals or detail retrieval, but the Razer wasn't a bad headphone by any means. It had a clear and present bass, without being muddy. I do feel like the Corsair Virtuoso had a more full sound, but the spotty connection ruined it.
Gaming tends to be, I think, more forgiving than listening to music ... so I ran through a couple of games as a test. I tried a game that I feel focuses on background music (Unravel), which sounded great. I also tried something with more exploding (Borderlands 3) and the headset felt equally competent.
Flaws (But Not Deal Breakers)
The volume knob goes the opposite of the way my mind treats every other volume knob in my life. Clockwise turns the sound down?! WHY?!
I would have loved an LED to remind me that I'm muted. My first attempted call failed because the mute was engaged.
The Razer Blackshark V2 X might have a terrible name, but it's an amazing product at the price point. I don't play as many games online as I used to and I listen to a lot more music. For me, it makes sense to have a great pair of headphones for music and solo play as well as a cheap headset for online play with friends and conference calls. This works for me.
Upon opening the box, the first thing you'll notice is a ONE TIME USE CODE for the 7.1 surround sound software. I read another review that said the software sucks, but I thought to myself, "Who uses the software for a basic mic anyway?" I went ahead to install the software and found out exactly what the other reviewer meant. The sound stuttered no matter what I did, no matter what application I was using. In fact, it rendered the sound useless as if I was lagging. I'm on a Ryzen 3950x with a RTX 2080ti with 64GB RAM, and nothing ever lags on this system. I tried to troubleshoot it a few times, but the only way to fix the sound was to uninstall the software. Before uninstalling, I restarted the computer to see if it makes a difference - nope. Restarted the computer, and found that I was no longer able to reinstall the software.
So I went ahead and played Destiny 2 with this headset, and found that this headset literally has no bass. It might be great for hearing footsteps at max volume, which surprisingly, was not very loud. The mic sounds tinny and muffled, as per my game mates, and worst of all, these ear pads are EXTREMELY hot. The way that the headphones seal to provide noise cancellation, which can't filter out the fans in my background, leaves your ears extremely hot after even just a few minutes of gaming.
I have tested a bunch of $30-50 gaming headsets, and I'm honestly not sure if this would be a great purchase for real gamers.

They are nice and low profiled, feel good on the ears even with glasses, have decent sound isolation, and no cord noise however they just sound cheap and bassy IMO.
I went off Hardware Canucks review of them and I am shocked Demitry, after usually wearing high end open backed Sens for his gaming rig, said these sounded great.
I had high hopes for an all in one headset to use on and off when I don't feel like using my Sens and boom mic but even after a break in there is no way these are going to develop more highs.
It's mostly mids and bass and for music and games they are just bland and lifeless.
-Empezaré por decir que la calidad es estupenda y son muy estéticos a mi gusto
-El tacto y acabado de los audífonos los hace sentir de calidad premium a un precio relativamente barato
-El software para darlos de alta en computadora es automático, funciona muy bien, rápidamente la computadora los detecto e instalo el controlador de tarjeta de sonido para su uso y así ha sido ya en dos dispositivos diferentes, sin problema alguno para compatibilizarlos.
-Sabes cuando están prendidos porque se ilumina un led de color verde en la tarjeta de sonido que contiene el empaque por defecto (no integrada dentro de los propios audífonos, si no que es un dispositivo independiente con entrada jack de 3.5 mm) que no molesta en lo absoluto y ni estorba para nada pero sirve para que sepas cuando los dejas conectados.
-No pesan mucho y son muy muy cómodos, cubren todo el oído y no apachurran o lastiman la oreja por lo que los puedes tener mucho tiempo puestos sin problema, yo los uso alrededor de 8 horas diarias para mis clases virtuales.
-Son amortiguados eso ayuda a la comodidad.
-Se oyen increíblemente bien tanto en recepción como el micrófono, que de hecho no detecta para nada la estática de fondo como hacían otros de mis audífonos al charlar por videoconferencias o en simples juegos, literalmente te los pones y te olvidas de ruidos exteriores molestos y que distraigan, claro que si lo que quieres es estar pendiente de tu entorno solo tienes que usar el regulador de volumen incluido en los audífonos así como su silenciador de micrófono manual en la parte trasera inferior del mismo sin tener que hacerlo pro medio de software.
-Una cosa similar a la anterior es que tienen sobre el auricular un control de volumen independiente al de la computadora en su mezclador de volumen, por lo que, si hay alguien no tiene bien ajustado el audio o el sonido es muy estridente para diversos programas , puedes bajar el volumen fácilmente sin mover el de la computadora.
Costaron unos 500 pesos mexicanos mas que los demás de la red con especificaciones similares, pero de verdad que estos audífonos merecen la inversión.
-El cable es un poco largo para mi y el hecho de tener que enrollarlo a veces me molesta ya que no se cuando necesitare un cable tan grande o tan pequeño.
-Son demasiado llamativos para los gatos (lo digo por experiencia), así que si tienes alguno en casa, es mejor dejarlos fuera de su alcance
Si soy sincero, para un usuario promedio como yo, que disfruta de escuchar música, jugar FPS tanto en Xbox como en PC y necesita de vez en cuando asistir a alguna videoconferencia, los considero unos audífonos perfectos para su PRECIO y en comparación a la competencia que se encuentran rondando los 2500 a 3500 pesos mexicanos, mas que nada por el nivel de software que manejan. Si alguien sabe donde puedo encontrar el codigo de activación de Razer 7.1 surround sound o si siquiera viene incluido con este modelo de audífonos, hagamelo saber comentando aquí mismo, por favor.
Sound quality is good; very balanced and natural sounding, with little audio processing and compression. The bass is okay, but good for a gaming headset. Very immersive sound experience overall, even without the 7.1 surround sound.
Microphone quality is great; crisp and clear without much compression on higher frequencies, and in my opinion on par with much more expensive gaming headsets.
The headset is very light, you can wear it for hours on end, It has no pressure points and the clamping force is just right in my opinion.
Build quality is okay, the rail system for the head band extension may take some getting used too, and feels albeit fragile as it is literally just two thin metal rails. I would be a little cautious when handling the headset over time.
The V2 X might be one of the best gaming headset for its price range. Gotta give it to Razer with this one, rarely do you hear budget and Razer in the same sentence...
Been using a week in office, very comfortable on the ears for video conferencing over hours. Mic clarity is great. For music, it's not overly bass so I don't mind balanced sound. Overall, awesome gaming headset.
- audio and surround sound is fine
- mic is ok it's what u expect from headset mics
- cable length shoulnr be an issue
- has mute and volume dial
- gets hot after a while
- uncomfortable for me personally too tight and hurt ears
Overall it's a decent headset. I only has to return
it mainly because it wasn't comfortable but it could be just be me.
