Hardware brand Razer has teamed up with Ubisoft to announce the BlackShark V2 Pro – Six Siege Special Edition, the official esports headset for the Rainbow Six Siege.
The device is a reskinned version of the BlackShark V2 Pro with a Six Siege design and highlighted with orange stitching and accents.
It features all the existing features of the V2 Pro esports headset, with Razer TriForce Titanium 50mm drivers, THX Spatial Audio with advanced 7.1 surround sound and a Discord-certified removable Razer HyperClear Supercardioid Microphone.
The BlackShark V2 Pro – Six Siege Special Edition also includes Razer HyperSpeed Wireless technology that aims to deliver a fast and reliable connection, and delivers up to 24 hours of battery life.
It’s designed for competitive gaming and features closed earcups and clamping force, offering passive noise cancellation, while its plush breathable memory foam ear cushions are designed for comfort.
The Six Siege Special Edition version of the BlackShark V2 Pro headset is priced slightly higher than the standard version at £199.99 on the Razer UK website, with the usual version costing £179.99.
The headset is currently a Razer.com exclusive product, meaning it’s only available to buy at the moment on the Razer website.
Rainbow Six Siege first launched in late 2015 and has gone on to build a broad esports ecosystem over the years. Siege has a host of UK talent, from players to casters, hosts and more.
Riot Games and ESL have recently been snapping up some of the UK’s top Siege talent to help broadcast Valorant tournaments too. For example, the Valorant UK & Ireland Skirmish broadcast talent line-up includes the UK’s Geo, Fluke, XRTROIKA, SkrivCasts and also South African caster NaoriMizuki.
Back in March, Navi won the Rainbow Six Siege UK Ireland Nationals Season 2.
