Razer is well known for its lineup of gaming accessories, including some feature-packed, high-end headsets. The problem, of course, is that most of Razer's headset lineup also comes with a pretty hefty price tag. However, the company is taking a slightly more affordable route, with its latest headset, the redesigned Electra V2, which starts at $59.99.
Compatible with PCs, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, the Razer Electra V2 is only available as a wired headset. It's also available in two flavors, either with a 3.5mm audio jack or a USB connector. Should you pick up the 3.5mm audio jack option, the headset can also be used to listen to music on your phone, or anything with a 3.5mm jack for that matter. The boom microphone can be removed to make the listening experience a little more comfortable.
The USB version of the headset does feature a couple of more premium touches over its 3.5mm sibling. "Optimized for PC-only use," the USB Electra V2 packs virtual 7.1 surround sound audio. The Razer logo on the ear cups can also glow with the company's signature green color. Other than that, both models feature the same aluminum frame, 40mm drivers, and integrated volume and mic controls.
The Electra V2 is available now starting at $59.99 for the 3.5mm audio jack version or $69.99 for the USB option.
