The Razer Seiren V2 X represents a fairly drastic visual overhaul of the Razer microphone series. The first-generation cylindrical microphones have been ditched in favor of an egg-cup/pillow design that’s more reminiscent of the current Razer Seiren Mini. Physically, it’s still about the same size as the original Seiren X, though the microphone itself now starts further up the device. It’s a familiar style that’s more modern to my sensibilities. It’s what I have on my Blue Yeti microphone, and basically looks like a scaled down version of that device. The V2 X doesn’t have any additional controls, so aside from the software, you’re limited to the mic’s mute button and gain knob. However, there is a 3.5 mm headphone jack on the back of the microphone for in-ear monitoring. Like its predecessor, the Razer Seiren V2 X comes pre-mounted on a fairly sturdy plastic stand that allows you to tilt the microphone 45 degrees in any direction. You can also unscrew the microphone from the stand by simply turning it counterclockwise. This is necessary if you want to use the Seiren V2 X with a boom arm, so it’s good to have that option here. The Razer Seiren V2 X sees a slight improvement in specs over the first generation Razer Seiren. The drivers are still 25mm, the supercardioid is still the only pickup system, and the sampling rate is still 48kHz. However, the bit rate has been increased to 24 bits. The frequency response is still 20 – 20,000 kHz, and the sensitivity is still 35 dB, although the maximum sound pressure level can now reach 120 dB. Also, the signal-to-noise ratio is now 105 dB instead of 85 dB. That’s a lot of numbers to say that it’s essentially the same microphone capsule as the first generation, but the signal sent to your device should now be cleaner and more accurate. If you had to focus on one feature here, it would be the higher SPL, which means you can be louder than with the first-gen Razer Seiren X without fear of distortion.
