How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Razer's military-themed BlackShark headset is comfortable, provides great sound quality, and is stylish, if you're into its aviator-inspired look. The BlackShark's earcups include memory-foam cushions, the substantial boom mic is removable, and swappable cables are included to accommodate computers with separate mic and headset jacks. While the BlackShark is a great headset, its price is a little on the steep side, especially since you can get Razer's 7.1 surround sound Tiamat headset for about $50 more.
