Razer’s new Leviathan V2 X PC soundbar is a smaller, slimmed down version of its full sibling that Razer released earlier this year. The 15.7-inch soundbar comes in at a cheaper price of $99.99, but still offers a decent amount of features for the price.
In terms of audio, you can expect two full-range speakers and two passive radiators with a maximum output volume of 90dB from one meter away. It lacks the subwoofer and THX Spatial Audio that comes with the standard $249 Leviathan V2, so you might miss the more immersive, bass-heavy sound that my colleague Cameron Faulkner said “sounds pretty fantastic” in his review.
Like its more expensive counterpart, the Leviathan V2 X comes with customizable RGB lighting effects – but instead of 18 different lighting zones, you get 14. The Leviathan V2 X also has a USB-C port which you can use to hook up your computer, however, this prevents you from using it with any other device, such as a TV. It also supports Bluetooth 5.0 in case you want to connect it wirelessly to your phone or computer.
Although the Leviathan V2 X lacks some of the bells and whistles of the standard Leviathan soundbar, it still seems like a budget option if you’re looking for a compact audio source for your PC setup, but it’s hard to say without it. get your hands on it. The device is available for pre-order now, with deliveries starting September 28.
