Razer introduces the Leviathan V2 X PC soundbar, which is less expensive and more compact
Razer’s new Leviathan V2 X PC soundbar is a scaled-down counterpart of its larger, full-featured sister, which was introduced earlier this year. The 15.7-inch soundbar is less expensive at $99.99, but it still has a good number of functions for the price.
In terms of audio, two full-range drivers and two passive radiators with a maximum volume output of 90dB while one meter away is expected. It lacks the subwoofer and THX Spatial Music that comes standard with the $249 Leviathan V2, so you may lose out on more immersive, bass-rich audio.
The Leviathan V2 X, like its more costly sibling, has adjustable RGB lighting effects – however, instead of 18 distinct lighting zones, you get 14. The Leviathan V2 X also features a USB-C connector for powering it through a computer, monitor, or power brick. It also supports Bluetooth 5.0 in case you wish to link it wirelessly to your phone or computer (if not, there’s a USB audio input).
Although the Leviathan V2 X misses some of the bells and whistles of the original Leviathan soundbar, it seems to be a cost-effective alternative if you’re looking for a small source of audio for your PC setup, but it’s difficult to say without actually putting our hands on it. The smartphone is now available for presale, with delivery beginning on September 28th.
