There's really a lot to like about Razer's newest PC soundbar. The Razer Leviathan V2 features a stylish look, compact footprint, and pretty good solid sound. And for those who like a little bling in their life, there's also Chroma support. All-in-all, it's a pretty good soundbar that's surprisingly competitively priced.
- Frequency response of 45Hz – 20kHz, THX Spatial Audio
- Drivers: 2x full-range, 2x tweeters, 2x passive radiators
- Bluetooth 5.2
The Leviathan V2 fits comfortably under a 24-inch monitor. Unfortunately, there's a sad lack of ports, with only one USB-C for connecting with your PC. The other ports are for power and the wired subwoofer. It's obvious Razer intends the soundbar for use with a PC, but you can also play music from a phone or Nintendo Switch thanks to Bluetooth connectivity. The volume controls are located on top of the soundbar, as well as the Bluetooth button as well as a button to switch sources.
Interestingly, the soundbar comes with removable raised feet. That makes it easy to route wires underneath. The feet are also removable, and you can swap them out for a pair that angles the speaker upwards and facing you. The soundbar features THX Spatial audio, but that only works when connected to a PC that's running Razer's Synapse 3. I'll be honest, I was hard-pressed to tell the difference with it turned on, even while trying tracks listed on the THX site. Strangely, the audio is just slightly different, and not noticeable if you're not paying attention. The Synapse 3 app also lets you change the light colours and patterns.
Even without THX Spatial Audio enabled, the Leviathan sounds fantastic. Mids and highs are clearly separated, while bass has plenty of oomph. In addition, there's a wide soundstage that feels like it's wrapping around you even without THX. It's also quite precise for games, though headphones such as the Razer Kraken V3 HyperSense will probably be better if you need pinpoint accuracy. I enjoyed the sound coming from the soundbar, that's for sure.
