Steelseries Headsets

Introduction

Introduction

SteelSeries have quickly gained a reputation as a great company for gaming hardware with their mice, pads and headphones proving very popular. From their humble beginnings as a two man team in Copenhagen in 2001, they are now recognised throughout the world as a producer of high quality gaming products that meet the demands of the whole gaming community from the small amateur to the professional team.

With their goal being to neither follow the mainstream trends, nor to add features solely for the sake of adding them, it is great interest that greets any new product launch.

Today we're going to take a look at three of their audio solutions, the 5H v2 USB Headset and soundcard, the Xbox 360 compatible Siberia Neckband Headset and the Siberia In-Ear Headset with passive noise reduction.

All three products are available in either black or white, but for that crisp winter look OC3D has all three in the very attractive white.

Firstly we'll take a look at them all separately, before testing them together. So without further ado let's delve right in and see what is on offer today.

We shall start with the top of the range SteelSeries 5H v2 USB.

Completely agree with the verdict on the 5H v2 headset. When I had a set for testing I just couldn't get used to the lack of bass and would go as far as to call them tinny. I tried to compensate with varied audio settings but they just couldn't manage it.

They were good in game in terms of clarity but when it comes to games like CS, if one was willing to sacrifice ace bass for accuracy they would opt for 5.1 headphones. They're slick and very handy for LAN as said. They struck me as a jack of all trades and a master of none.

Great review too, very difficult to describe sound quality as you did
