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.

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


Perfect for games.

As for the cans themselves, they’re bassy, mostly, with midrange absent and a tweaky treble. That’s great for games but not so much for music. The only downside is the comfort – there isn’t much of that. The cushions are lacking in padding, are too...

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...

OK headset, Horrible customer service


Great coverage, able to walk all over house without dropping sound even when going through multiple walls ; great at blocking out other sounds ; Better sound that other wireless headsets ie 930's a50's corsair 2000's

very high clamping force on larger heads, had to take them off every 45 mins because they were digging into my head due to the cheap ear pads that flatten out when used for longer periods of time ; mic has noticeably more "noise" than the modmic I used...

worst customer service/RMA


Headset is comfortable and i love how easy it is to connect to everything . The sound is great as well

It's a shame the company doesn't care about their customers after they have spent money. I have never had such a bad experience with a company in my life. I have put in 5 RMA request as well as posted on their social websites to get and answer on if...

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

Broke in 3 months, 2 months (still waiting) for RMA


Below is a concise version of my RMA experience with Steelseries trying to attain a replacement headset: (RMA ticket handled by "Russ B." 5/5/15: RMA ticket made 5/7/15: initial response, told to input address and select it for RMA to move forward....

Replaceable AND rechargeable batteries, 2 included with headset ; Good sound quality ; Very nice base station hardware/software ; these pros are the only thing stopping me from a 1 egg review

WAY TOO MUCH PLASTIC FOR A $300 HEADSET ; SteelSeries is known for decent quality in all their wired headsets so why does this thing have cheap *expletive deleted* plastic headband and plastic on plastic balljoint interface that allows for the angle...
