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

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

Great Headset


all in a run on sentence these headphones are great had them for over a year now and still working like if i just unboxed them i mainly got them because they are made of metal which is stronger and less chance of cracking and eventually snapping like...

non,but since its been a year,one of the ear cups leather lining has opened up at the seam so the memory foam/cushion is exposed but not affecting me negatively

Razer BlackShark


I think this is the best headset I've had so far, I had driver issues with usb headset before and that steered me away from them, when I'm gaming I want as little running in the background as possible as bugs do seem to occur from sound drivers and games.

Comfortable ; Noise cancelling ; Adjustable ; Can be used as a computer headset or unplugged from the splitter and Used with my ipod ; Removable mic ; Awesome design ; I don't even feel this headset on once I adjusted to my head it has the most...

The only thing I can think of is the short cord but it's not really short my box is on the floor so that's part of it

Great until it wears out


Comfortable for long (LONG) wear, good sound quality from the mic and speakers. I like the break away cable/splitter, it makes untangling cables very convenient

Though I was super careful with it, the mic has stopped working. (Bought it in 2013, it's now 2015). There's no spare parts available and no repair services are offered. It's a pity I really like this headset but don't feel like spending another...

Solid headset


Snagged these badboys off Refurb for 39.99!

Sound amazing. Downloaded Razer Synapse for Naga mouse and found that there is also software for the headset! the software has so many options to customize your sound and also includes surround sound customization ; Razer Synapse Surround Pro lets you...

If I don't have it sitting correctly on my head, the headset will push on my "Antihelical fold"(had to look that up)AKA the outer hard part of ear, and after an hour or two it will start to hurt. Maybe i just have weird dumbo ears ; If the mic is...

RAZER BlackShark


a pretty good headset, but not at this price.

I love the detachable microphone ; comfortable for long sessions ; decent sound quality (I have since started using audiophile headphones) ; The bright green accent of the wire is super cool ; rigid, solid build

Shortest lived headset I've ever owned. (the microphone started crackling out after about 6 months.) ; The extension with the splitter for separate audio/mic jacks kept popping off during games

For this price you cannot lose!


All in all I would say that this is a great headset, other then the bias to the bass and the compatibility with the PS4 controller, I am completely satisfied with this product.

The cuffs on this headset seal very well around your ears, the material of the head strap is very comfortable, and after hours of continual use, it still felt great, the mic/headset adapter can be removed and works great with Android devices

This headset is very overbearing in the lower frequencies, It is very bass heavy, and although that may be good for kids playing games the really feel the explosions, I found I had to EQ this headset to get a more flat response out of them, the 4...
