Review: Razer BlackShark gaming headset

 

Razer military-style gaming headset

Very clear sound ; Strong construction ; Distinctive style

Heavy weight ; Microphone lacks sensitivity

When gamers want more from their experience, they typically go one of two directions. Those wanting to improve their chances will go for high-end equipment in the hope that it will help them react faster than their opponents, usually through gaming k

Cool looking and well built

 

-4 to -6 Bass on my Yamaha RX-V663 receiver's headphone amp shows a different side of these. They can go much higher without distortion, and are far less fatiguing to listen to. Some kind of EQ is almost essential with these headphones. My Creative...

Really good construction quality. Solidly made headset. Very aviation-esque with a great mic boom. Little bit of extra immersion for flight sims :) Good mic quality as told by my friends listening on Skype and Steam. Headband is steel with a stitched...

Very skinny cord. This is a little worrying on such an otherwise well-built product. Baby it though, and it should be okay for a long time. With stouter wiring it would be a better product, and I can't imagine it would hurt audio quality either. Sound...

A Go-To Buy

 

They have very good amplification not just onboard but as 32ohm cans by themselves. Razer surround helps out a lot even with its already booming base.

Treble heavy music isn't ideal with these but they can still hold their own.

What an amazing headset

 

Another amazing product from Razor, Best headset i have ever used and owned and that's saying a lot being i have 2 sets of beats. Price is perfect and well worth it. Bought a second set for my friend and he can't stop talking about how great these are.

Keeps all the sound in (Can not hear anything going on around you with this headset on (Awesome) Lightweight and durable Very comfortable and snug Sound is amazing. I have beats from Dr Dre and these sound just as good Looks are awesome

Everything I Hoped For

 

I'm going to start out this review being completely honest. You are either interested in this headset or you aren't. For the money there are probably many other headsets that gaming wise do a much better job because they are 5.1 or even 7.1 for a...

- Great Sound - Good Microphone - Extremely Comfortable - Amazing Sound Insulation - Solid, Metal Construction - Nice design

- Expensive for only being a stereo headset - Mic boom filler piece doesn't fit perfectly, see below for explanation - No inline control, but I'm fine without one - Tricky packaging

Well Loved and Still Alive

 

Small dining sounds from a few metal pieces that prevent the cups from rotating 180 degrees. Stick a piece of paper in there or something thicker and they don't do it anymore. KEEP AWAY FROM RODENTS THAT LIKE TO CHEW ON THINGS.

Bass is great, reaches anywhere with the adapter and I love the design. It's durable to the point where I'm pretty sure they've been stepped on several times and haven't been broken. The mic boom doesn't interfere with anything nor get in my field of...

Wish the cord was at least braided. I would've paid an extra ten bucks just for that since bunnies love the cable. I've had to replace my headset because they chewed through the cable. They don't like braided stuff, though, and it would also make less...

Better than you might think.

 

When using some basic EQ changes, these Headphones are a far superior product. Great clarity and power. The price is about right considering what a REAL pair of audiophile cans cost. These are the poor man's alternative and they look awesome doing it!...

Awesome construction quality. Really solidly made set of cans. Very aviation-esque with a great mic boom. Lots of fun for flight sims :) Good mic quality as told by my friends listening. Headband is steel with a stitched pleather cushion. Material on...

Very skinny cord. This is a little worrying on such an otherwise well-built product. Baby it though, and it should be okay for a long time. With stouter wiring it would be an amazing product, and I can't imagine it'll hurt audio quality either. Sound...

Razer BlackShark

 

If you move your head from shoulder to shoulder you can head a slight tink noise. It's the stop that keeps the headphones from fully rotating around full circle. Just something to consider. Price is well worth it in my opinion. If you don't buy this...

Firstly, this is my first review I've ever done on newegg after years and thousands of dollars spent. I mainly chose this headset because I will admit I am a Razer fanboy. I have had many other brands of headsets including Razer in the past and they...

No inline volume control can get annoying but that's the part I broke on my last Razer headset and the reason I had to get a new one. So it might save me in the long run.
