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.
It's a good build, especially for smaller heads. I found it smaller than the Kraken, but the clamping force is also greater. I didn't have to adjust the size, but the hinges are it weak area. The BlackShark does feel very comfortable at first. After a couple of hours gaming, my ears started to hurt. I find both the Kraken and the Thresher more comfortable and they stay cool longer; however, the BlackShark is lightweight and has comfortable ear pads. I think the clamping force is what made it uncomfortable after awhile.
The sound is good, but nothing that really wowed me. In fact, I was disappointed because I didn't notice much of a difference from the Kraken other than volume. The BlackShark does get louder....much much louder; however, the sound isn't as rich or detailed as expected. In comparison to the Thresher 7.1, it fails miserably in my opinion.
The mic had annoying static/hiss when I was playing with friends. My friend even recorded it on his end so I could hear it. We tried Party Chat and the static/hiss went away, but this meant that I would be dependent on the Party Chat versus in-game chat. The plus was that the mic was super loud. I had to adjust the settings to way low...the static/hiss was still present though. Perhaps it was just a faulty BlackShark V2 X headset.
Why the 3 Stars?
The mic mute is almost hidden behind the ear cup cord. Not sure why they placed it where they did. The volume knob turns in the opposite direction that other knobs usually do although this wasn't a major negative. The volume gets loud, but begins to distort at louder volumes. It lacks bass as well. Also, the surround sound software is pretty much useless if you play on the PS4. The surround sound is really meant for PC use; however, it didn't really enhance the sound. It was okay. I would find a better pair for the PC. Maybe the non-X BlackShark is better.
Verdict: I was expecting more for the hype. Returning the headset and sticking to my Krakens 7.1, Corsair H70s, HyperX Stinger wireless, and the Thresher 7.1 which is the best sounding set for the PS4 in my experience.
