Razer Kraken V2 review: Two headsets, one leap forward


Despite being as bulky as ever, the 2016 Kraken arrives packed with improvements—and is the best showing this line has had in a long time.

Sturdier aluminum chassis ; Finally ditches the streetpunk look of its predecessors ; Better audio than the old Kraken, especially after EQ adjustments

Bulky looking ; Out-of-the-box audio is flat and lifeless ; No volume controls

It’s a big year for Razer. Less than six months ago, I was ragging on the outclassed Kraken in my Man O’ War review. Now the Kraken’s folded in many of the Man O’ War’s improvements, but with a durable aluminum design and much more affordable $100...

Razer BlackShark V2 X Review


The Razer BlackShark V2 X are the Razer BlackShark V2's pared-down, budget-friendly sibling. Even though they don't offer a lot of features such as companion sof...

Downloadable virtual soundstage feature available. Comfortable and stable fit. Excellently-performing boom microphone.

Sub-par controls. Gamer-centric design. Non-detachable audio cable. Disappointing noise isolation. Inconsistent bass and treble delivery. No companion software.

The Razer BlackShark V2 X are disappointing for mixed use. Although they have a simple but bulky design, their boom microphone isn't detachable, which keeps them from looking like casual headphones. They also struggle to isolate noise, including bus...

Razer Basilisk V2 review


The Basilisk V2 isn't the last word in FPS mice, but it's worth checking out if competitive multiplayer is your thing.

Those who aren't married to FPS controls might be just as well served by the Razer DeathAdder V2, which costs $10 less. But $10 over the course of a gaming mouse's life span isn't that much, so whichever one feels more comfortable is probably the right...

Razer DeathAdder V2 review


The Razer DeathAdder V2 is a perfect example of everything that a gaming mouse should be, even if there's not much new.

. But if the DeathAdder V2 has any deal breakers, I couldn't find them. Here's to another 14 years.

Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 Review


The Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 is another excellent product, having some of the best audio quality we have seen out of any headset to date. It's very comfortable...

While the does have some drawbacks, notably the inconsistent microphone quality and being slightly less convenient to operate than some of the other products, but it is hard to argue with its superior audio quality if that is what you look for in a...

Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 Review: Monstrous Size, Mythic Sound


If you can get past the Kraken 7.1 V2's bulkiness and lack of versatility, you'll find a surprisingly comfortable headset that provides great sound for both games and music. An $100 price tag is definitely fair, given the high-quality audio. Whether...

Extremely comfortable ; Great sound ; Lots of music presets ; Good mic

No 3.5-mm options ; No gaming audio presets

Although it's hardly subtle, the Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 delivers top-notch sound with supreme comfort for both competitive and single-player gamers.

Razer DeathAdder V2 Mini Gaming Mouse Review: Smaller Specs for Smaller Hands


A lighter, lower-specced DeathAdder with powerful grip tape

Effective grip tape ; Drag-free cable ; Glides and flicks easily

Middling side buttons ; Grip tape comes as self-applied adhesives ; Lesser sensor specs than original ; Fewer programmable buttons than original

The Razer DeathAdder V2 Mini will make small hands happy with its stay-put grip. Its specs aren’t as robust as the bigger version and some rivals, but its accessible shape and ease of movement make it an easy choice for gamers seeking a lightweight mouse.

Razer Basilisk V2 Gaming Mouse Review: A Better DeathAdder


Razer Basilisk V2 does everything well--for a price.

Excellent tracking ; Ergonomic design ; Plenty of customization options

$80 for a wired mouse is hard to swallow

Razer brought the Basilisk into 2020 in the best possible way, thanks to a bevy of new features packed into an ergonomic design at a reasonable price considering what you get.

Razer DeathAdder V2 Gaming Mouse Review: Deadlier Than Ever


Simple mouse, solid performance.

Great performance ; Excellent USB cable ; Easy customization

Textured design can be uncomfortable during long gaming sessions ; Middling side buttons ; Somewhat unwieldy size

Razer updated the DeathAdder V2 with a Focus+ optical sensor that makes it a joy to use, even if it seems larger-than-usual at first. It’s a worthy option for right-handed gamers who don’t need a bunch of whiz-bang features to appreciate a...
