Razer ElectraV2 01

On October 19th, Razer announced two new gaming headsets for value-conscious gamers: the Razer Electra V2 and the Razer Electra V2 USB. Razer has designed this headset to offer great sound, fit and features at a budget price. The sound is generated by custom-tuned 40mm Neodymium drivers. The comfortable fit of the Electra V2 is achieved using a lightweight, flexible aluminum frame with a suspended headrest and plush leatherette ear cushions. Features include a 3.5 mm unified audio and mic connector (on the V2 headset) and a removable boom microphone for enhanced communication during gameplay or in phone conversations.

Removing the boom mic allows for streamlined use. The USB version allows users to activate Razer green back-lighting on the ear cups, and experience virtual 7.1 surround sound digital audio quality by Razer Synapse – Razer’s cloud-based configurator.
