SteelSound 5H V2

The box that houses the SteelSound 5H headset is a thin, clear plastic box with a cardboard backing and moulded plastic insert to support the headset. The headset is held to the insert with wire ties which stop them from falling forward into contact with the plastic, where they could get damaged.
The plastic insert is covered in a fine grey "flock". This leaves it feeling soft to the touch and gives it a matt beige finish. Unfortunately the static generated by the case plastic attracts any loose fibres, and after transit gave the box a slight haze.
Overall the packaging is sufficient to prevent damage from drops and knocks and is certainly perfect for the retail outlet, putting the headset well on show.
