Ergonomics wise, it fits my ears fully. The earcups opening are 6 cm by 4cm (inner part), earcups padding is 1.7 thick all round, earcup deep is 1.7cm deep (tip of my ear does touch little pose no discomfort). The headphone have an 2 axis swivel mechanism. The headbands are metal, you can bend and twist them and it still retains its shape. There is no height adjustment as it uses the auto-adjusting bands to conform to your head. The overall headphone grip is good, little tight than the plastic alternatives but pose no discomfort and if you shake your head vigorously it doesn’t fall off.

The sliders are located on the left side behind the ear cup, one to mutes the mic and another an analog style slider for your volume, I prefer this over buttons. Sound isolation is decent can be better with thicker pads.

The sliders instead of buttons, loving this method.

Powered by a pair 40mm neodynium dynamic driver. For additional 10 USD you can get the USB version that come built-in with DAC for little bump in audio quality and fancy glowing razer logo.

Because the version we have uses 3.5mm analog jack you can’t get the virtual 7.1 like on the USB version. If you insist to get it, you have to buy the software separately, kinda defeats the purpose of virtual 7.1 labelled on the packaging.

But Overwatch or any FPS for that matter, is really good, enemy position can be felt easily even at lower volume especially if you’re a Brigette looking out for Tracer’s blink or that Junkrat running over your head. So yes you still can hear you enemy just not that sharp without the virtual 7.1.

Audio quality

Pop/EDM:

Tiaan – Be Ok

  • The low bass frequency is well-bodied but doesn’t feel half-hearted just the bass fade little quickly.
  • The low bass frequency energy (air pressure) is good with no distortion.
  • The low bass frequency doesn’t eat into the vocal, clear separation between both.

Pia Mia – Do It Again

  • The bass body is good but fades quickly especially the 2.05 mark.
  • Bass feels balanced with the vocals

Vocals/Instrumentals:

Ed Sheeran – Touch and Go

  • Guitar tone feel okay with just adequate amount of sharpness. Can hear the subtle vibrations.
  • Vocals in general including voice deep, humming, echoing is superb.
  • Every diction and pronunciation is crystal clear.

Violinder – Raindrops

  • Violin/Piano has the right amount of shine, it not the warm sounding type more of the sharp crystal clear one. The type I like. Rare for a gaming headphone that emphasis bass all the time.
  • Violin/Piano slightly overpowers the bass/drum good indication of balance headphones.

The Electra V2 are balance type headphone with good mid to high frequency. I feel this is better than the Razer Kraken Pro V2 which is more bass heavy.
