It's average.

Laura d., Newegg
27 March 2011
  • Summary: It's a great mic for $60. The quality is great if you have the livemixer adjusted/leaned in the right direction so it doesn't become "unplugged" On another note, You CANNOT use this headset on the Razer Onza. This headset has the 2 long prongs on the side which the Onza doesn't have.
  • Pros: -VERY Comfy -Your ears don't touch anything except for the padding -Lightweight -LiveMix works great -Loud (if you want it loud)
  • Cons: -Main cord w/ the audio/mic is like 1.5 ft long. -Main cord is flimsy. -The livemixer is HUGE -Doesn't really fit into your controller, you have to force it in -Can't move around the livemixer too much or else it'll almost cut out. -Sometimes cuts out (or becomes unplugged) -The livemixer is always on regardless if the controller/xbox is on or off. -The mic isn't very sensitive, so you kind of have to speak up more than you would using any other mic. The main con is t...

Hot headded

dusty g., Newegg
10 February 2011
  • Summary: Makes my ears and surrounding area very hot when worn too long. It was a long battle between these and Turtle Beach. I don't regret my choice, but I should have spent the extra money on the 5xb.
  • Pros: Great sound, easy set up, PC compatible.
  • Cons: Is PC compatible but the audio mic cables are way too short to just plug in, requires and extension cable for both. (Not worth taking off an egg sense they are primary XBOX headsets)

Good for the price

Eric R., Newegg
31 December 2010
  • Summary: Great buy for the price i didnt have the money to spend 150+ on headphones and these where a great buy for the price.
  • Pros: Good price compared to other xbox360 headsets headphone are comfortable sound is good for the price of the headphone(on the website they sell the puck itself for 30+bucks just buy itself).
  • Cons: the only flaw i can see is the puck is a tight tight fit and i was worried at first if i was gonna break it while forcing it on the first few times. and for this i have to drop one egg rating.

  • Pros: Clear, crisp sound quality. Allows you to hear someone sneaking up to you when you are playing multiplayer. I can play without disturbing the rest of the household.

Best Headset Ever! Must Buy!

Matt H., Newegg
10 December 2010
  • Pros: I really couldn't ask for anything more from a headset. I have had others, and this is by far the best yet. The sound is extraordinary, plus it has comfort at the same time. I wish I could wear this thing all day! Also, this thing is literally impossible to break so its great for children and teenagers. GET THIS HEADSET!
  • Cons: None.

Horrible

Michael Z., Newegg
7 December 2010
  • Summary: These are just awful.
  • Pros: Nothing really- When considering the cost.
  • Cons: The puck wont fit out of the box, with out force. This is even evident on the steelseries website video- the quality is poor, and over all the puck is oversized. The phones themselves are hollow sounding and feel like they are made hastily. The wires connecting the phones to the mic and headphone plugs feel as if any slight tug would shred them. My advice, buy headphones from headphone companies. Main pair of phones- HD650s, ShiitAsgard Amp, Dolby HK 254 Dac.

Als PC Headset unpraktikabel

J. H. S., Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: Das Headset wird als Xbox 360 kompatibel angeboten. Diese Formulierung lässt den Schluss zu, dass es sich eigentlich um ein normales Headset für den PC handelt, welches darüber hinaus auch für die Xbox 360 verwendet werden kann. Grundsätzlich ist das auch richtig. Das Headset funktioniert sowohl für PC, als auch für die Xbox 360... theoretisch. Denn wer das Headset für den PC nutzen möchte, wird ziemlich schnell feststellen müssen, dass die Klinkekabel viel zu kurz sind.

  • Excerpt: В общем, очень не советую данную модель.
  • Pros: Хорошее качество звучания, удобно выдвигается микрофон, да и сам он хорош. Отлично сидит на голове и не давит.
  • Cons: Всё еле держится на милипизерных болтиках. Очень, просто ДИКО хлипкая конструкция. Спустя полгода отвалились уши, причём в разных местах. Обратно присобачить никак. Починил кое-как синей изолентой. Очень короткий шнур – 1м. Для ПК не очень то подходит, ведь созданы они для XBOX. Также внезапно перестал работать микрофон...
