Save your money and buy something better

Isaac F., Newegg
28 July 2014
  • Summary: I bought these because I was in a pinch. I had metered my expectations because these were cheap, yet I still came out disappointed. Just save up more money and buy something worthwhile.
  • Pros: They deliver sound, I guess. They fold up to be pretty small for compact storage. All the better to stuff them away in a drawer to never use them again.
  • Cons: Very uncomfortable. I have small ears and these still didn't sit comfortably on them Weak sound. I've bought other headphones for the same price that sounded much better (and louder).

Make sure this will work for you.

  • Summary: This headset does come in analog but NEEDS a Powered mic input! It will not work for most laptops unless you purchase a usb soundcard. Otherwise it is a decent product.

Very uncomfortable

Isaac F., Newegg
22 May 2014
  • Pros: They produce sound. That is about all they have going for them. They haven't broken yet even after almost a year (mostly because I stopped using them).
  • Cons: These headphones are *extremely* uncomfortable! They don't fit around the ear despite being called "circumaural". I don't have large ears and even mine don't fit. The cushioning is stiff and does little to actually cushion the ears. The sound is poor at best. Bass is practically non-existent. The set isn't very loud even at the loudest volume. The ear pieces do not swivel forward or backward at all, meaning they won't sit flush on your ears. The cups are very shallow ...

Broken mic, bad sound quality

  • Summary: The mic doesn't work, and the headphones sound awful anyways. The microphone worked fine for a few hours, but then it just completely stopped picking up any sound at all.

For medium to small gamers ONLY

Phillip L. Battista, Amazon
25 February 2014
  • Summary: Thinking it was from Steel made me assume they were a much nicer set of headphones but after getting them I found my rather large head could barely fit them and then the earcuffs were extremely small and put pressure on my ears after a few hours of wear. If you have a big head do yourself a favor and get the Turtlebeach X series for the consoles. It eats up a USB port but the size and sound is unbeatable.

Broke on first use

Jordan s. Pfautz, Amazon
24 January 2013
  • Summary: I took it out of the package, settled in for a gaming session and one of the hinges broke on the top of the head band. Definitively a bit small for even a normal sized head. And pretty flimsy. Might be good for a child.

Awesome... while it lasted

Amazon
1 June 2008
  • Summary: These are fantastic headphones! Great sound, great mic quality, and after some use are very comfortable. Problem is, less than a year after my purchase the microphone no longer works. I am a freak when it comes to being careful with my things. Absolutely no durability! I expected more from a quality brand like SteelSeries.

Not for long sessions of gaming.

Ethan, Amazon
7 December 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this headset as I was looking for a reasonably cheap option to replace my previous headset. I bought the 3H as I assumed that as it was from SteelSeries it would be a very good buy, however I was very disappointed. The sound quality of the headset is good both in-game and whilst listening to music and I have never had any problems with the quality of the mic, where this headset falls is its comfort.
