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.

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...

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...

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...

A very high quality gaming headset

 

Something to think about is that in my experience, each battery seems to last somewhere in the realm of 8 hours. You get 2 batteries and the idea of this headset is that you'll swap one out as soon as it's getting low or dead. This is a nice idea...

Pros ; Sturdy build quality ; Very comfortable during long periods of use ; Sound quality is outstanding and easily rivals that of wired headsets ; Unique hot-swappable battery tech ; Mic quality seems fine. I do live stream, and online game a lot and...

The advertised wireless range is 40ft. Well, I haven't taken this into an open field to find out if this is true, but your house most likely has doors and hallways and things that might obscure line of sight. The more realistic wireless range is like...

POOR QUALITY

 

Don't waste your time buying this headset based on other reviews or from the popular Linus tip video. I'm fairly certain he was paid to make these headphones appear godly, it certainly gained my interests. So I bought both these headphones and the...

It's wireless

Poor quality sound compared to other $300 wireless headsets ; Has WEAK bass even when tweaking equalizer to max ; Feels like cheap plastic and cheap pleather earphones ; It's bound to break and the headphones are going to disintegrate in time without a...
