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

 

SteelSeries is getting next-gen capable and living room ready

Super-comfortable design ; Stellar sound quality ; Transmitter's OLED screen ; Two long-lasting batteries

Volume seemed underpowered ; It's expensive

At the £270 level, a gaming headset needs to not only be devoid of significant issues, but also be a really refined and awesome addition to your game-playing experience.

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...

Customer Support is terrible

 

for msrp 299 dollar price tag you think they could at least do something more than write you what almost seems like a mass generated scripted solution.

The sound is excellent. Range is great. Dual batteries are superb

Technical support is terrible. I've sent in two tickets (they have no phone number to contact) When I received my reply back it was vague and not pertaining to what I wrote. There is no warning for noobs that there are plastic covers on the tos link...

The batteries in my unit sporadically stop charging (and worse, sometimes even lose charge) while in the base. That's a pain since the major convenience of this unit is the way it charges. If my headset dies and I grab the other battery and it's also...

Follow up from my eggspert review

 

Please read my previous review for the pros

I had an incident a few months ago where I required to replace the headset. Tech support doesnt pay attention obviously, because they keep sending me a 9H headset replacement instead of the actual headset I need. Either their RMA staff is a robot, or...

Simply amazing

 

I would consider myself an audiophile and for being a gaming headset primarily they are wonderful ; Being able to connect both my playstation 4 and my computer at the same time and switch between inputs remotely from the headset is a HUGE advantage. I...

Ok the cons ; 1 con of the headset doesnt have anything to do with the headset itself but what comes with it. The length of the cords they give u is a joke. A 3 ft. usb cord is worthless to me. I had to go out and buy a 10 ft. extension at Radio Shack....
