SteelSeries 5Hv2 Headset

29 September 2007
  • Summary: Like other headsets from SteelSeries, the 5Hv2 features a retractable microphone.  In my experience, this has proven to be very handy as you can store it internally when packing it around, or even when listening to music.  When you need to chat up your buddy, you can pull it out then.  This also helps alleviate the "geek" factor when you're just enjoying tunes on your computer.
  • Pros: Comfortable., Very good sound quality., Sturdy, durable design., In-Line Controls.
  • Cons: Microphone level switch causes momentary loud interference.

SteelSeries SteelSound 5H v2

27 November 2006
  • Summary: This headset performs really well in games where you need to hear small details such as footsteps. The only area where the SteelSound 5H v2 disappoints is when listening to music. If you just want to play CS and other FPS shooters this headset is a good buy, because it's relatively cheap and provides great comfort.
  • Pros: Comfort, Durability, Bang for the $, Gaming performance, Design (Can be split for safe transportation)
  • Cons: General audio performance

  • Excerpt: Before I opened the box I was hoping that SteelSound fixed everything and released a product that is worth the money of our readership and I am happy that I can say that time has come. It might have taken three tries, but it certainly wasn't three strike, you're out.

Endlich einheitliche Soundqualität?

15 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Schon lange wird die wilde Multiplayer-Schlachtplatte nicht mehr nur per Schreib-Chat bestritten. Sprachsoftware (Teamspeak, Ventrilo oder Skype) stellt sich vor allem bei Shootern, Online-Rollenspielen und Strategietiteln als unverzichtbares Tool heraus, könnt ihr doch hier Taktiken in Windeseile absprechen. Umso mehr rauft ihr euch das Haar und verflucht den heimischen Rechner, wenn das Headset ein hemmungsloses Eigenleben entwickelt.
  • Pros: gute Klangkulisse, hohe Kompatibilität, intelligentes Mikrofon, transportabel, ergonomisch
  • Cons: hoher Preis, tückische Verarbeitung, minimalistischer Auftritt, zu dezentes Design, keine Tragetasche
