Razer Leviathan V2 Pro review: This crazy tech creates cinema-grade sound for your gaming PC

Soundbars might not seem like a very exciting category these days. They’ve been around for over a decade now, starting as a helpful replacement for weak speakers in skinny televisions or as a simple way to bolster a home cinema setup. For desktop computers, the appeal is broader since constantly using headphones all day isn’t exactly recommended for gaming, even if I’m guilty of that.

A decent set of surround-sound speakers often appeals to PC gamers to enhance immersion and offer a relaxing break from headsets. Still, it’s usually a pain to set up if you don’t have suitable space for satellite speakers and trailing cables. Anything capable of replicating the effect should attract some intrigue. Razer offers all that and more with an extra-special head-tracking feature in its Leviathan V2 Pro soundbar, but does it live up to the hype?
