Razer has been making high-quality gaming gear for years, but only recently did it turn its attention to PC audio with the Nommo line of desktop speakers. The Razer Nommo V2 Pro speakers are the company’s latest and highest-end 2.1 channel speaker system, featuring discrete left and right satellite speakers as well as a wireless subwoofer for deep, rumbling bass. For $450, the Nommo V2 Pro brings premium build quality, RGB lighting, and fully customizable sound with Razer’s Synapse software. If you want a high-powered PC speaker setup and don’t mind paying for quality, the Razer Nommo V2 Pro should be at the top of your list.
The Razer Nommo V2 Pro speakers exude a premium feel from the moment you unbox them. The all-black satellite speakers have a cylindrical design with a matte finish that attracts virtually no fingerprints. They connect to your PC via the included USB-C to USB-A cable, with one speaker housing the port and volume adjustment dial. The wireless subwoofer is fairly compact but dense, providing powerful bass in a relatively small package.
The included Razer Wireless Control Pod acts as a multifunction volume dial. You can use it to power the speakers on and off, adjust the volume, toggle inputs, and mute the sound. It has a rechargeable battery that Razer claims will last up to 8 months per charge. In practice, you’ll probably only need to charge it a few times a year. The control pod is a nice inclusion but not essential, as you can also control most functions directly through the Synapse software or volume via Windows directly if you don’t want to adjust settings.

The Nommo V2 Pro features Razer Chroma RGB lighting on the rear of the satellite speakers, projecting onto your wall. To match your setup, you can customize the lighting patterns and colours through Razer Synapse. The lighting is neat, though it would’ve been nice to get additional zones on the front of the speakers.
As you’d hope from a premium gaming speaker set, the Razer Nommo V2 Pro sounds fantastic. The satellite speakers deliver crisp highs and tight mids, while the subwoofer provides powerful, rumbling lows that you can feel. The sound quality is good out of the box but benefits greatly from customizing the EQ in Razer Synapse. I bumped up the low and high end for a warmer, more immersive sound.
The Nommo V2 Pro supports virtual 7.1 surround sound through Razer’s THX Spatial Audio technology. This does an impressive job of creating an enveloping sense of space, with sounds seeming to come from all around you. The surround effect works for both games and movies, and you can enable THX Spatial Audio on a per-application basis using Razer Synapse. The Nommo V2 Pro can also get extremely loud, so you’ll want to be mindful of the volume, especially in an apartment or condo.
The Razer Nommo V2 Pro speakers connect directly to your PC using the included USB-A to USB-C cable. It also supports Bluetooth 5.3 for connecting mobile devices or wirelessly hooking up your PC. The Synapse 3 software allows you to update firmware, adjust EQ and sound settings, customize lighting, set volume levels, and enable THX Spatial Audio on a per-app basis.
The Synapse software is extensive but can be cumbersome to navigate, with so many options and profiles to set up. Still, for power users who want full control over their audio experience, the level of customization Razer provides is hard to beat. And if you just want to adjust a few simple settings, Synapse also makes that straightforward.
The Razer Nommo V2 Pro requires AC power to operate, but the control pod is rechargeable. The speakers work with PC, Mac, PlayStation 4 and 5, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices over Bluetooth. However, to get the most out of the Nommo V2 Pro, including THX Spatial Audio, EQ customization and firmware updates, you’ll want to connect to a Windows PC with the Synapse 3 software installed.
Pricing and Value:
At $450, the Razer Nommo V2 Pro is not cheap, but you get what you pay for. These are high-quality, fully-featured desktop speakers designed for discerning PC audio enthusiasts and gamers. For casual listening or basic computer sounds, you can definitely spend less. But if premium, customizable sound with robust connectivity and software options is important, the Razer Nommo V2 Pro speakers are worth the investment.
The included wireless subwoofer and control pod, along with Razer’s build quality and feature set, also help justify the cost here compared to cheaper alternatives. The original Razer Nommo Pro is still available for a bit less if you don’t need the latest tech, but the newer V2 Pro is superior in almost every way.
The Razer Nommo V2 Pro is an outstanding high-end PC speaker system for gamers and audio enthusiasts. It offers powerful, customizable sound, premium design, and handy extra features like wireless connectivity and THX Spatial Audio. While expensive, the Razer Nommo V2 Pro delivers a premium audio experience that’s hard to beat. If you want the absolute best in gaming audio and don’t mind paying for quality, the Razer Nommo V2 Pro should be at the top of your list.
