The Razer Electra V2 is a headset aimed at the more budgeted gamer who is looking for something that is decent while also being fairly priced. Quite a multi-functional headset the Electra V2 works with PC, PS4 and mobile devices while being able to replicate 7.1 with virtual surround sound.
Budget and Razer are normally quite wide apart, the word budget instils “cheap” and normally means subpar build quality and sound. Razer like to use good materials and internals which usually means more of a premium. It’s good to see though they are trying to drop the price on some of the devices so more gamers can get their hands on gaming gear. You might not get the greatest headset, but for the price, it could be worth a trade-off or two, more so if you already have a Razer set up in the works.
In terms of design, the Electra could pass for a more expensive headset with the mixture of metal and plastic being a fairly sturdy piece of kit. It’s a little more creaky than other headsets made of plastic but you have to keep remembering that price of £54.99 which I can see as an easy reason for it not to be exactly the same that costs £100+.
