SteelSeries H Wireless Headset

 

Excellent sound quality for games. ChatMix and LiveMix features balance game sounds with clear voice audio

Expensive. Sound suffers a a bit with music outside of games

If you don't mind a high price for a device best-suited to a single task, the SteelSeries H Wireless Headset is one of the better wireless gaming headsets you can buy.

SteelSeries H Wireless Review (Page 1 of 4)

 

One time at church, a high school girl came up to me enthusiastically and asked, "Have you seen the new One Direction movie?" -- which, to her disappointment, was a resounding "no". For some reason, many people are quite convinced I am a big fan of...

Has SteelSeries finally perfected the art of creating the best headset for both gaming and music? Well, not exactly; but I am far from being disappointed by the H Wireless. In fact, I am very impressed by the fact it delivers on what it promises to do....

Verdict

 

The best way to describe the SteelSeries H Wireless headset is that as a package it is the best headset that I have tested, this comes courtesy of a great Gamer orientated sound signature, wireless connectivity and an amazing Transmitter packed with...

Labs Brief: Steelseries H Wireless gaming headset

 

Adding a microphone to any old headphones do not maketh them game cans. I think, and Steelseries apparently agrees, in that a separate control box for mixing voice and game audio is essential. This is the key big thing here, with these. Several...

Perfect for games.

SteelSeries H Wireless Headset

 

If you don't mind a high price for a device best-suited to a single task, the SteelSeries H Wireless Headset is one of the better wireless gaming headsets you can buy.

The H Wireless is built for gaming and that’s where it really shines. It comes with all the cables you’ll need to connect the receiver to any game console or PC and even supports higher-quality optical audio if you have a device that supports it. I...

Best headset I ever had

 

There are headsets in the same price range, that have a LITTLE better quality hearing and mic. but the interchangable battery and the fact that you litteraly never plug it in far outweigh those specs.

5/5 on sound quality 4.5/5 mic quality 5/5 battery life (the one headset that you LITERALLY never have to plug into anything 4/5 comfort I wear it 8-12 hours a day, with school and work both online. It works amazing with my PC, Phone, and PS4. the only...

a little more padding on the top would make this flawless. It has an amazing mic already, I HAVE had better. but still far better than most

Awesome Sound Poor Execution

 

There are two outstanding features of this headset: Audio Quality and Wireless. The set is adjustable and can be bent for a perfect fit so they are comfy as well. An adjustable sidetone would be easy to add but Steelseries does not have it so shouting...

Outstanding Audio Quality, Wireless, includes all cables, lies flat on desk when not in use, comfortable to wear

Customer service, no sidetone / mic monitor, no software, no manual, doesn't really work right out of the box, terrible microphone, included optical cable is too short to be useful.

Headset eventually stops working

 

Horrible RMA process. They don't recognize NewEgg receipts as proof of purchase. They make you take pictures of product and close your RMA in an unreasonably short time frame. It's a shame the customer service is so bad, because they do design...

OK Sound, good mic, comfortable.

The batteries stopped being chargeable, charging can be buggy. Light on features. SteelSeries customer service is pretty bad, it's basicly set up to hope you don't reply in time, then they'll cancel your RMA. They didn't accept my newegg receipt as...
