Good sound...for a little bit

Connie G., Newegg
30 May 2015
  • Summary: Would have given it five stars if it wasn't for the flaws. I hate to see this beautiful headset go in a drawer and to never be seen again.
  • Pros: Great sound. Loved the bass that it had.
  • Cons: The side where the mic comes out of apparently has a flaw where it can break the wire. This unfortunately happened to me and now the whole left speaker is done for :(

extremely Slow Customer Service

Randy P., Newegg
1 November 2014
  • Pros: It looks good and feels good as long as its in the winter and your rooms cold or a good AC if you don't have a good AC your ears will be dripping wet after a short game session. Also it is very light. Good headset with bad Customer Service.
  • Cons: The Customer Service was very bad it took way longer then it should have. I waited 3 months after shipping my headset to them before i got it back. It was so long I had forgot about it.

Excellent Buy!

Charles H., Newegg
25 February 2014
  • Summary: Very much worth it for gamers who have only a few hours at a time to devote to usage.
  • Pros: Very cool looking headset. The red was exactly what I was looking for in my set-up. The console is very cool to customize, and overall I am very pleased with my purchase.
  • Cons: While the headset looks very cool, it is slightly uncomfortable to wear after a few hours. I have bigger ears (lucky me) that seem to be irritated after prolonged use of the set. Also, the Steel Series console is pretty memory heavy in usage. On my PC is runs about 60~80k memory usage as a back-r...

Slow Customer Service

Roger P., Newegg
18 February 2014
  • Pros: It sounds good and works well when it is working. The appearance is also great and it appears to be a quality product.
  • Cons: The cord went bad after 2 months of relatively easy use. That can happen to any headset. My complaint is that the replacement process took almost 6 weeks. After they received my defective headset, it took them 4 weeks to ship a replacement. That is a unacceptable response time.

Excellent sound

Matt F., Newegg
8 February 2014
  • Summary: Overall the sound is the best I have ever seen on headset in this price range, but I cant recommend it because a lot of people are complaining of the mic breaking after 6 months or so.
  • Pros: - Really good sound quality - Awesome looking lights and overall design - Mic sound was good - Long cord with extension
  • Cons: - Mic broke after 6 months - Screw popped out of side and I lost it - Uncomfortable on head if worn for a long period of time

MARCUS T., Newegg
20 September 2013

  • Pros: The sound quality is good The mic is retractable I bought this during the 4th of july sale and have yet to notice any quality issues such as cracking, loss of audio, broken wires.
  • Cons: Short as hell cord The microphone quality is less than decent The headset feels like it could break under the slightest amount of pressure even though it won't.

Very fragile and delicate.

Ahsan S., Newegg
23 July 2013
  • Pros: Comfortable Decent audio Built in mic Colorful and looks nice
  • Cons: I purchased this on sale towards March of 2013. It worked fine and still works fine. Upon opening, I did note that it felt very cheap compared to the regular steelseries headsets. Specifically, it sits on your head using a strap attached to the speakers with two metal wires. Four months later, th...

Awesome headset, but low mic quality.

Joseph R., Newegg
8 July 2013
  • Summary: The long cord can get annoying if you aren't using it all; however I'm not good at cable management so I can't say it's really a con. It's awesome, and looks great. I only wish there was more setting to play around with like microphone sound frequency.
  • Pros: - Light & Durable - Sound quality it great - Drivers that let you change how audio sounds - The bass is nice! - I got it while it was on sale for $60! - The LED on it look freaking amazing.
  • Cons: - It didn't fit around my head as well as I expected the first few days, but after it wore in for a while, It fit nicely. - Microphone quality is terrible... The AGC (Auto Gain Control) is better off if you don't want your voice flickering, but even then it gives bad results in quality. Maybe it ...

Great Headset...kinda

Samuel P., Newegg
20 April 2013
  • Summary: Hopefully I have my warranty info around here somewhere cause this really upsets me that the mic would quit before even 1 year with a headset that cost <$100. I would expect this from a $20 headset
  • Pros: Excellent sound, clear mic, comfortable for long gaming sessions.
  • Cons: Mic just quit on me last week after only 8 months. Have tried everything to make sure it's not a settings problem, and it isn't. Windows sees the mic, but won't pick up any sound.

My Initial Thoughts

Harrison C., Newegg
10 March 2013
  • Summary: Other thoughts * When the headset goes on my head, the ear cups leave a small gap in between the bottom of the ear cup and the skin below my ear but that can be fixed by adjusting a little.
  • Pros: I am going to be honest and give all my impressions and opinions of this headset when I first put them on. I just got these today, they were a gift from my best friend for my birthday because he knew I always wanted Siberia V2s. However it was "I Love Blizzard" week and got these for 69.99 from S...
  • Cons: Cons - This has been said MANY times when I read 20+ reviews to kill time until my headset arrived. THE CORD IS SHORT AS HELL, I use a laptop because I am saving up for a gaming PC and it is right infront of me. However it is still short. I have to use the extension cable, which isn't braided lik...
