Headset Up Close
When you're basing you product on one of the most anticipated games on the planet, it's wise to write it large. The Diablo headset certainly ticks all the right boxes in grabbing your attention.
Flipping open the magnetic cover reveals some gorgeous Diablo III artwork as well as a sneak preview of the headset itself. On the inside we have the usual excellent SteelSeries quick-start guide as well as a very long USB extension cable to make sure you aren't forced to sit on top of your tower. If we were being extremely nit-picky we'd have liked to have seen a red variant of the standard SteelSeries sticker, just to tie in with the theme.
The demonic red theme extends to the furry plastic container for the headset. It's those little touches that really emphasise how this isn't just a V2 with some red trim but something that's had a lot of thought put into it.
The headband has the Diablo logo printed on the top. One of the things that demonstrates the design harmony is how this is an identical shade to that on the mouse (which we'll see soon). Harmonious.
The Diablo is a USB headset, so you can be sure it'll plug into anything handy and you'll be up and running in seconds. In keeping with the V2 base of the headset it is equipped with the excellent noise-cancelling flexible, retractable microphone.
