SteelSeries 9H Gaming Headset Video Review

 

DaveChaos takes a look at a stalwart of the eSPORTS arena, find out his thoughts in todays video review from HardwareHeaven.

Consumer review by:

Very good headset, but probably worth closer to 100$

 

If you can get them on sale for not more than 120$, then I highly recommend them.

This thing is great, definitely delivers great sound, and feels quite high quality, from the headset itself, to the cords. The mic goes into the headset which I love

160 seems quite high, if I were to guess the price of these after using them for a couple of months, my guess would be 100

SteelSeries 9H

 

Sound quality - The sound is on this headset is good and about what you would expect from a $160 product except the bass is a little heavy for my taste (easily fixed with an equalizer program). I don't think the sound quality is good enough to move it...

Build – The headset is built well. Nothing about it is loose or squeaky ; Cords – The cords are very nice and proper lengths, no complaints there. And of course they give you the various connectors ; Comfort – It is a very comfortable headset. I had no...

Volume – Like others I am listing volume in cons because this headset is not loud enough. However, I don’t think it is as big a problem as others have made it out to be. When I usaed it with my phone, it did have enough volume. The only time it was not...

SteelSeries 9H Gaming Headset

 

After spending a little time with these headsets I give them a 4 out of 5. Over all these are good headset for gaming and very comparable to my A40s as far as the sound goes. With them hooked up to the "sound card" that comes with it the volume leaves...

very decent sound quality ; light weight ; easy to wear (comfortable) ; very decent sound quality (for gaming) ; braided cables ; volume control on the headset cord ; mic sounds good

probably should be in a little lower price range ; USB sound card is kind of worthless ; not very loud (with out a good sound card and amp) ; ears get sweaty from leather after a while of gaming

Consumer review by:

Good, except connection flaw

 

Although I built my own gaming computer and game a fair amount, I have never used an over the ear headset for gaming until I got these. Most of my experience with headphones is from fairly cheap earbuds – this headset obviously sounds much better and...

Great looking headset – they look like they cost over a hundred dollars ; Retractable mouthpiece - it feels pretty sturdy and I like that it can be hidden (if you wanted to use them in public for music) ; I think that this headset doesn’t accentuate...

Despite the headset looking nice, the construction may be somewhat lacking. My connector where the cord plugs into the headphones was slightly askew. At first, I thought this new headset was not functional because the cord’s plug would not fully...

Decent Sound Quality, Way Too Quiet

 

While not really pertaining to the quality of the headset, apparently newegg does not consider the "SteelSeries 9H Gaming Headset" to be a headset. Good to know if you have a headset coupon from newegg.

Comfortable ; Decent Sound Quality ; Light ; Modular Cables ; I purchased the SteelSeries 9H headset as a replacement for a broken Logitech G35 which I have used for a few years. I mainly chose the 9H because of the USB soundcard and the modular cables...

Sounds are quiet even at max volume, with or without sound card ; Mic was broken upon arrival ; Does NOT block out sound well ; First off, the microphone was defective. I tried it with and without the USB soundcard, messing with the SteelSeries...

solid comfort

 

One piece design. Very comfortable to wear. sometimes you forget that you have it on. Excellent fit and finish. No qualms about workmanship ; Creamy rich bass and good midrange for music ; I compared these with my old fatality creative headset and it...

There is some leak when gaming, so you may hear outside interference from your enviroment and home. It is not total isolation that many gamers prefer, but at this price range it is a worthwhile exchange. For next level headset, you'd have to pay...

I love this headset!

 

I actually like this headset a lot, despite any negatives. Its worth 5 stars in my opinion, for me anyways. In its software it even allows you to set custom game profiles so that it will automatically change the sound based off of what game/exe file...

Very nice looking headset. I really like the matte black look it has with the orange stitching and liner for the ear pieces ; The padding on the ears is an inch thick and very soft and comfortable to wear for long periods of time. I wear glasses also...

Using just the USB connection with the built in sound card, the maximum volume is not nearly as loud as when connected to a sound card with a built in amp. Although it still sounds very good, and at 100% its just the right volume for me actually. I...

Good for Gaming

 

My overall thought on this headset is it is a great product, it does what it was designed to do let you game without much outside noise interference, be comfortable aside from a little bit sweaty ears, and hear all the sounds you need to in the game by...

This is a nice headset, the sound quality is good you are able to hear sounds that you wouldn't normally hear with your standard day to day headset. Includes plenty of cable length, so you are able to use at a distance from your pc if you were to sit...

I do have a couple cons that tie together, the sound on this headset could be louder with windows volume at 100% and the volume control on the headset turned all the way up its to me still low. With the usb soundcard still the same issue volume is too...
