Does not last long

Ricky Parker, Amazon

  • Summary: They are decent headphones but everytime I buy a pair after about 4-5 months the sound in the right ear stops working. I AM VERY DISSATISFIED.

Too small

Dylan Ford, Amazon
23 July 2014
  • Summary: Most uncomfortable headset ever, do not get if you are an adult, should fit fine for children though, also the audio is not loud at all, they look great but perform bad and feel bad.

Decent sound, but small and cable is short.

James G., Amazon
5 April 2014
  • Summary: These headphones were designed for kids. That is the only reasoning I can think of for them being so small. They are very tight on the ear, small ear cups, and perhaps most annoying, a very short cable. The microphone that pulls out of the side is very flimsy.

Low Grade Headset

Andres Alvarez, Amazon
19 February 2014
  • Summary: you are probably here to find a affordable headset. Please do not get this. This headset will hurt your ears if it is on for long periods.

Probably ok for children and/or as a backup pair of headphones...

Senor Zoidbergo, Amazon
30 September 2013
  • Summary: I was disappointed after trying out the SteelSeries 3Hv2. The packaging looked very promising! While I liked the convenient and collapsible storage capability, these were the sole advantages. The ear cups were tiny and not at all comfortable for adult ears.

Really very small for an adult

Amazon Customer gracies mom, Amazon
25 September 2013
  • Summary: Although there are some good features for this headset it by no means lives up to the hype on the box. They are cosmetically nice and come with the y attachment to make them handy for use with a phone etc.

They fell apart

William A., Newegg
29 March 2013
  • Pros: OK sound, the collapsible option was nice.
  • Cons: The wires inside broke shortly after the warranty expired. My friend opened them up and the soldering was pretty poor on the very fine wires inside. We replaced all the wire inside them with heavier gauge and they work again.

3rd Steelseries 5H V2 i've owned..

gillian s., Newegg
6 March 2012
  • Summary: I don't usually write reviews, but this was so frustrating that I just wanted to warn the buyers. I'm seeing a lot of Newegg reviews that show 4~5stars(I was on the same boat when I liked it at first), but most likely you'll have the same problem as I had.
  • Pros: Nice mic(+1 to retractable), really comfortable, worked pretty well when it worked for over years.. long cables made it easy for me to move around the desk. Nice detachable Build-in Sound card
  • Cons: I've purchased the first set on 5/12/2008, replacement in 2009, and got the last replacement in 2011. ALL 3 of these had SAME problems with in-line volume/mic.. It worked fine for a couple of months until the controller became static and kept on losing sound either on the left or right ear pieces...

Filthy, and static above 60% output

Ryan H., Newegg
10 January 2012
  • Summary: Trying them for a few days before I RMA. The cleanliness or lack thereof is disappointing, but the sound issue is a real concern. Ventrilo chatter is causing distortion; need to try in Skyrim later.
  • Pros: Extremely comfortable, mic has good pick up.
  • Cons: Sounds are distorted, with a lot of static appearing above about 60% volume. Headphones came repackaged (which was expected) but utterly filthy. I'm talking dead skin caked into ear coverings, human hair stuck to them, and dry sky stuck in padding on the top. Had to thoroughly clean them before use.
