Today we received a headset from SteelSeries called the SteelSound 3H.
SteelSeries SteelSound 3H & 4H Headsets Video Review
7 December 2008
Summary: Both the SteelSound 3H and 4H headsets offer great bang for the buck. The 3H headset is targeted at the budget market, but great if you need an inexpensive, small, foldable headset for a LAN party. The 4H has a little better sound quality, larger earcups, and is more comfortable, but it's not foldable like the 3H. Watch the Video to find out more...
Conclusion: The SteelSeries Steelsound 3h Headphones are an excellent entry level gaming product for those looking for quality gaming sounds. They are portable and very well made, they should last through many a frag session. For gaming the Steelsound 3h headphones are great, for music, not so great, but then these are gaming headphones and not really sold for music.
Summary: Before we get into testing, I have to say that listening to audio is very subjective. What one person believes is "good quality" audio can be very different from what another person hears. I am no audiophile, but I do like to hear the full spectrum of sound without the bass being over-powering or the midrange and treble being too sharp and harsh. Please bear in mind that all of our observations are subjective.
Summary: The performance of this headset did really surprise me, I didn't expect such a relatively cheap headset to provide such excellent sound quality. One of the things that amazed me with this headset is just how small it is when you fold it, the ultra-transportable design is a definitive plus because it makes this headset ideal if you want to use it both with your PC and MP3 player. I really like the transportable design but it does come at the price of reduced durability.
Conclusion: SteelSeries has been making gaming peripherals and accessories for quite a while. Whether it's iconic gaming products such as headsets to mousepads, or other miscellaneous odd products, they've got it. While the company's SteelSound 5H V2 is still our favorite high end gamer's audio up until this point, there's one significant aspect that needs to be addressed: Price.
Conclusion: If you are looking for a compact gaming headset at a decent price (~$49 USD), look no further than the SteelSound 3H.The top-notch sound performance and comfortable fit make the headset a winner, and the compact size and portability are added bonuses not often seen in a good quality headset.Overall, the SteelSeries gaming headset deserves an editor�s choice award as one of the gold standards for all other gaming headsets to be measured against.
Excerpt: Well, given the price of the 3H I don't think you could ask for a better headset. This is definitely a solid entry-level product from SteelSound. The sound quality is amazing and the build quality is good. Just listening to a few music tracks was enough for me to fall in love with these Headphones and trust me when I say that's no easy thing to achieve.
Conclusion: After testing the 5H v2, 4H and the 3H, the perfect headset would be one as comfortable and as well designed as the 5H v2, while packing the 3H’s speakers. SteelSound have done themselves proud with this headset, blowing other headsets in this price range out of the water. The build quality is lower than the other headsets in the range that SteelSound offers, but this is to be expected; its a budget headset.
Pros: Comfortable, Readily transportable, GREAT bass, Mic works well
