Razer Unveils New Razer BlackShark V2 Pro for PlayStation and Xbox

Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers and the #1 PC Gaming Headset Brand in the US, today announced the expansion of its most celebrated esports headset line to the console realm with the introduction of the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro for PlayStation and Razer BlackShark V2 Pro for Xbox. Building upon the legendary reputation of the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro for PC, these re-engineered console editions are tailored to meet the demands of PlayStation and Xbox esports, offering unparalleled audio precision, vocal clarity, marathon-ready battery life, and enduring comfort.

“The BlackShark headset is an icon among esports pros and hardcore gamers for a reason,” said Nick Bourne, Head of Razer’s Console, Mobile& Streaming Division. “Leveraging our position as the top gaming headset brand, we tuned these headsets for Xbox and PlayStation, working closely with pro gamers to refine the fundamentals of an esports class headset while introducing upgrades that we know highly competitive gamers are seeking.”

In collaboration with elite esports pros such as Hakis (Alliance) and Shotzzy (OpTic Gaming), the console editions of the BlackShark V2 Pro are fine-tuned to meet the rigorous demands of top-tier competitive console gaming.

Best-in-Class Audio Featuring the Razer HyperClear Super Wideband Mic
Featuring the Razer HyperClear Super Wideband Mic, the console editions maintain the acclaimed high-definition, pro-level voice quality of its PC counterpart. Surpassing the expectations for wireless headset mic performance, this next-gen detachable mic captures an astounding level of detail in gamers’ voices through a wider frequency range of sound. As a result, every shotcall with teammates comes through clearly, with rich, natural tones.

“This headset’s a game-changer: super light, insanely comfortable, and competition-ready—plus, the mic clarity is unbeatable; truly the definitive console headset for esports.” said Brandon “Dashy” Otell, Professional Call of Duty player for OpTic.

Complementing the industry-leading microphone, is the BlackShark V2 Pro’s cutting-edge, proprietary designed TriForce Titanium 50 mm Drivers. Combining these titanium-coated diaphragms with esports players’ perfectly tuned and selectable onboard audio profiles allows gamers to experience unmatched audio clarity and pinpoint sound cues, creating a competitive edge.

Pro-Tuned FPS Audio Profiles and Flawless Reliability

Tuned in collaboration with some of the top esports’ athletes in the world, gamers can experience the same audio as the pros do in competitive play. The BlackShark V2 Pro for PlayStation and for Xbox comes pre-loaded with onboard sound profiles tuned for Apex Legends, Call of Duty, and Fortnite. Xbox Gamers can also adjust their game/chat audio balance directly on the headset, with no additional software required.

The headset is equipped with Razer HyperSpeed Wireless, an industry-leading 2.4 GHz wireless connection that ensures high-performance, low-latency competitive play with sound that is perfectly synced to the game. With built-in Bluetooth and Razer’s SmartSwitch on-device control, gamers can seamlessly switch between a 2.4 GHz or Bluetooth connection on their headset.

Ultra-Light Design and Luxurious Comfort
The BlackShark V2 Pro defies expectations with its ultra-light design, weighing in at a mere 320 grams (about 11.29 oz). This lightweight build ensures fatigue-free gaming sessions, allowing players to focus on what truly matters: victory.

But it’s not just about weight—the headband features a soft, pressure-free cushion meticulously crafted to provide optimal support without compromising comfort, even on marathon gaming nights. Thanks to the passive noise cancellation of the plush memory foam ear cushions, gamers will be cocooned in a world of immersive sound, free from distractions.

Raising the Bar in Console Gaming with Industry-Leading Features
The BlackShark V2 Pro for console narrows the gap between console and PC gaming excellence by amplifying the best competitive features for pro gamers. With its long-lasting battery life (ranging from up to 48 hours on console and up to 70 hours on PC), groundbreaking microphone, crystal-clear audio, and exceptional comfort, not only does it follow in the footsteps of its PC counterpart but also sets a new benchmark for esports headsets within the console gaming landscape.
