SteelSeries 3H Gaming Headset

Conclusion

Conclusion

To start off, I must admit I did not hold a great deal of hope for the 3H headset. I am glad to say, however, that after using it for a few days, I have grown very fond of them indeed. The two main reasons for this are firstly my love of bass, and secondly the fit provided by the double over-head band system. The cups fit well, the plastic is solid, the sound is very respectable and the construction is lightweight and portable.

The microphone is not outstanding but through about 20 games of CS:S has not left me having to repeat myself once. Really my only two gripes with this headset is the looks and the lack of an in-line volume controller, but for a price of around £25 you really can't expect much more.


Pros

- Lightweight
- Excellent bass
- Retains quality at high volume
- Very portable
- Good fit
- Retractable Mic

Cons
- Average microphone construction and output quality
- No in-line controller
- Plain looks

I got sent the 5H V2's a while back, they had a great design but sadly i just cant use 2.1 Headsets.

Zalman Theatre 6 all the way, i've had two pairs of them for the last 4 or 5 years taken them everywhere from London to Singapore while playing CS Source.

Sadly you just cant find them in the UK anymore and im in desprate need of some more!
