Steelseries 5Hv3 Gaming Headset Review

 

The SteelSeries 5Hv3 is the same's second best offering in terms of Tournament Headsets and at Amazon's price, its an absolute steal.

Overall, a very decent quality headphone but the price ($50 on Amazon, $79.99 listed) can be a serious deal breaker. Adding a few bucks ($20) more will net you the Sibera V2 which is far superior in terms of Audio performance overall (quite heavily in...

Good Price for Good Quality

 

Besides some simple flaws with the mic this is a great headset, especially if you have any discounts, so if your looking for a gaming headset under $50 o would highly recommend this one.

Sounds really good (sounds better than my speakers) Sounds like your actually in the game. About $40 which is great for people who don't want to spend $80+ for a decent gaming headset Disassembles into 3 parts Comes with 2 cords which allow it to...

Earmuffs could be bigger. Hurts your ears after wearing them for more than a 1-3 hrs. Mic is very small and thin and should reach out a little farther to get more in front of your mouth Mic quality is not the best. But gets the job done

Nice

 

If you're looking for microphone built into a headset then I would suggest buying this model.

Great sound and flexibility with the microphone protected in the headset itself.

Really can't find anything to gripe about.

Great Product

 

This is one of the best gaming headsets I ave bought for the price! As a gamer I could hear sounds I couldn't on my old headphones. Playing CSGO on these were great, could hear footsteps clearly and the gun shots are decent. I would recommend tweaking...

Great Sound ; Braided cable ; Included extension cable ; Retractable Mic ; Comfortable leather texture ear cups ; Included smartphone cable ; At the time I only got it for 18 dollars refurbished

Bass is kind of soft, (may only effect sound enthusiasts) ; Mic quality could be better, (but is totally still great quality and usable.) ; And the quality of the top cushion is not the leather texture, (but you don't really feel it because it is on...

For what they are, unbeatable.

 

The big thing you have to keep in mind here is what they are - they're cheap, refurbished headphones. Refurbished items vary more than new ones do, and you have to remember that hwne you purchase them. However, I got mine for $20. At that price, I...

Couldn't even tell they were refurbished ; Like-new condition ; Great sound quality (for price) ; Look neat ; Braided cable ; Extension cable and adapter to 4-pole ; Comfortable

Sound isolation isn't great
