    SteelSeries SteelSound 5H v2

    (Page 1 of 5 )

    For a hardcore gamer, there is almost nothing better than a pair of high quality gaming headphones, except of course a high quality gaming headset with retractable microphone. Today weíll be taking a look at the SteelSound 5H v2 from SteelSeries, to see how it measures up.

    My years of being a DJ have left me very picky when it comes to audio equipment.  Whether Iím gaming or just listening to some tunes on my computer, I expect the highest quality out of my headphones.  This is why, when SteelSeries sent us the SteelSound 5Hv2 for review, I immediately volunteered myself to review them.

    SteelSeries has a reputation in the gaming community as a manufacturer of high quality gaming gear.  Hopefully this headset will live up to its expectations.

    Before digging into the box, letís take a look at the features and specifications.


    • Custom-engineered soundscape designed specifically to enhance performance and immersion in gaming. This headset was developed and optimized for in-game sound frequencies, which makes in-game sounds like footsteps, alerts and gunfire especially clear. You will be able to hear and pinpoint the location of your opponents, often before they hear you.
    • Full-size headphones gently fit around the ears and reduce background noise, while providing maximum wearing comfort.
    • Bringing the headset with you has never been easier or safer. The SteelSound 5H v2 can be easily dismantled into three separate parts, which makes transportation a breeze. The pieces will easily fit into a bag or a carrying case.
    • SteelSound 5H v2 also features a pull-out microphone system. The retractable microphone is practically invisible when not in use. The microphone cord is covered in high quality transparent plastic to ensure long-lasting durability.
