After the Razer Blackshark V2 and V2 X review 6 months ago I've been using the V2 X ever since. But with so many stories about Razer gaming peripherals quality over the longer term, it's time to give a 6 month update and user review for the Blackshark V2 X. Was I wrong to call this the best gaming headset?

HOLY CRAP THE SEEMS ARE IMPORANT. I DIDNT NOTICE THE EAR MUFFS ROTATED, I MOVED THEM SO THE SEEMS ARE FACING UP AND IT FEELS WAY BETTER AND SEALS NICER HOLY CRAP.
The way the ear pieces are held, makes me feel like they would get so loose in a year and would get so annoying to deal with. Making me want to get another kraken even though it is less sound quality.
one quick question - hyper x cloud stinger 2 or blackshark v2 x ?
I got this Razer headset today.
I actually got it as a reward for.... Smoking cigarettes 😂😂
Given that fact, I am pretty happy with them. And my son, who uses the headset primarily, loves it.
I have yet to setup the 7.1 Surround Sound software. I am interested to see the difference it makes.
The microphone is a bummer. I was hoping our next headset would have a rotating, solid mic arm to prevent the loss of rigidity in the mic arm itself.
For me, this headset is an upgrade AND it was sort of free, and I have NO REASON to buy some high end headset... So I can live with it.
Thanks for the video, cool to see someone with more experience with this stuff, and knowledge on the brands and quality is really helpful.
I've bought a headphone called REMAX Gaming Headphone RM-810, it costs about RM109 or about 23 dollars. I thought the razer blackshark v2 x would have been an upgrade but no, the REMAX RM-810 had better build quality and better sound quality than the Razer BlackShark v2 x, tbh very disappointed.
better this or HyperX Cloud Stinger 2?
If anyone's wondering how long these can last, I've been using mine for almost 3 years now and have had no issue on a technical level nor have they lost any sound/mic quality over the years. These are absolutely great as long as you take care of them.
U can remove the v2 mic aswell, u just cant put it back xD
I bought these and find them very painful... I'm gonna try stretching them out
this v2x or gsp 300 regarding competitive gaming audio??
I suggest you start clarifying that you only game on pc on every video you do about music equipment, pc is not a preferred platform for all when it comes to gaming, heck if you buy just one console then there would be people who might believe your opinion and buy it but their choice of console could be different like ps or xbox or nintendo etc. and i just read somewhere that one of the blackshark model apparently do not work on xbox, so if you had rated that equipment based on your experience on your pc and ps console that would still not be true to all platforms, so you need to take those factors in as well, consoles do not allow software support for the various headphones unless it is first party and even then it is not a guarantee that it will have software support like the inzone series from sony do not have inzone hub software on ps5 console, and i suggest all viewers to not depend on a single reviewer and buy stuff on what they say and rate, expensive or not
one thing ive noticed is that after 2 years using it the mic arm becomes squeaky when trying to move it, might be just my pair but definitely wasnt there when bought new
on ear or over ear??
i have had these headphones for over 3years and they are still in good condition and working perfectly
What do you do about the volume knob causing static when adjusting it. Also adjust it so often that it started making the left side volume to cut off. Lose wiring or something or bad solders.
i had 50 bucks hadphones for over 6 years and they still work but i wanted to buy new ones so
razer blade pro 2019 - i7-9750h 2070 max q - bought it new 2021 june - since then had to remove battery after 6 months because it got bloated, laptop needs new terman pads every 6 months because it runs super hot, fans are always loud. i have the advanced version 240 hz screen but it has lines on the bottom of the screen :( appeared there after 1 year of use. also keyboard rgb is not working properly on some keys. also LAN cutting off 2-3 times a day so i have to restart the laptop not be on wifi :( been using it with external screen, mouse and keyboard. will never buy razer laptop again.
You can fix the splitter cord with electrical tape, you can also tape a pipe cleaner to the mic to make it stay up
