Kingston KHX-H2SS/WR


Good quality sound

Some feedback on the mic. The extension for the mic/headphone jack lasted less than a month before one lost function

Solid and Powerful!


A couple of my audiophile friends like to tell me my sound isn't flat enough, I think they're just jealous that I'm so satisfied with a product that didn't put me in a box under my local bridge.

These amp extremely well, I couldn't get them to distort without going far beyond my comfort threshold ; Bass is extremely powerful ; Overall sound quality is rock solid, these sound better to me than just about everything else I've heard, always...

They can be a bit on the quiet side ; They're too cheap for the quality

Kingston KHX-H2SS/WR


Bought these for my kids for gaming and for their music. These work well for both situations because the mic is retractable. The sound quality is amazing as an audiophile. Not perfect, but no distortion at normal listening levels. The look is...

Comfortable, I love the long cord/extension

I wish they were louder......I have them and my system options cranked. If anyone has another way to raise the volume so that it's loud enough to block out a whining girlfriend I would be very appreciative

Good for Gaming


USB version is probably better, but a lot more money. I was just trying to get a decent pair around $50 that were comfortable and sounded good. I'm very glad I bought these. A friend was at a small LAN with me 2 weeks ago and hated his. I had him try...

Very comfortable. This was one of the main reasons I went with these. I got them on sale for a good price also ; I sometimes wear glasses when gaming so I wanted a pair that were comfortable ; Sound is very clear for gaming. Music it is decent. I'm not...

Big and probably unattractive/geeky =)

Not bad


Great sound

I have a large head so these don't really fit well

Consumer review by: JeffTom3 (

just got these


For the money, especially if it's on sale there is no better wired headset for the money. And I have used Logitechs, Turtle beaches, Tritons, Plantronics, Corsair, and I have to say Steelseries is the best set I have owned so far. I only rated it 4...

I love the noise suppression, It doesn't completely nullify outside sound, but it does a darn good job of trying cancelling it. It easily adjusts to anyones head with no problems, and I have a big head and little ears lol. The retractable mic is also a...

Long cable 6 feet to be exact unless you have your own cord to plug into each socket for the headset (mic socket and headset socket). Other then that the only other con I have is that I have only had it one day and I am giving it 4 stars. Who knows...

Great Headset


Crystal clear sound, lightweight, pretty, and very clear voice on skype and other communication devices

None so far, maybe a bit too long with the chord but nothing big

Steelseries siberia but different color/name on headset


Mic switch does have a depression for grip when sliding it, besides that its smooth plastic.

Love the blue color. It's a steelseries siberia v2. Not usb. retractable mic. more than enough cable with the extension. light and comfortable. smooth ear pads. covers all of my ears which really dampens outside sound. Kingston and Steelseries are good...

Comes with extension, sticker, and ear damage warning. Would have liked a little booklet besides all the specs on the box. The mic on/off switch is a nice feature, but it can be slippery/slick which makes changing it hard. Would be nice if there was a...
