SteelSeries Spectrum 5xB Xbox 360 Gaming Headset Review
17 May 2011
Conclusion: In conclusion the SteelSeries Spectrum 5xB is a great headset, one that would be very hard to beat if you are an Xbox gamer and even one that I wouldÂ recommendÂ to any PC gamer as well. In fact if it wasn’t for the Â£59 price tag I wouldÂ recommendÂ it to even non gamers it has really impressed me that much.
Excerpt: Most of us, despite our adoration of the personal computer as a gaming platform, also own a console or two. There are many things that a console does well that it's difficult to find with a home computer.
Excerpt: 2 Flares 2 Flares × We have been very impressed with SteelSeries’ products in the past and we’re not alone; some of the most highly rated gaming teams only use their products when competing professionally. So we’re always excited when they offer us their new hardware to review.
Excerpt: The quality of Steelseries headsets finally given a chance to have an impact on the XBOX Readers of this site will know I am quite partial to the headsets that Steelseries sell. This is because they tend to bridge the gap between price, quality and performance very well. However, until now I have only been able to experience these headsets with my PC. Enter the Spectrum 5XB. The Spectrum 5XB is 2 products in one. The first is the Headset (the actual 5XB).
Pros: Good sound quality. LiveMix is great.
Cons: Needs a lead from the controller to a free USB port AND your TV. 5XB headset is not best that Steelseries do.
Summary: Качество самого звука можно оценить на твердую «четверку». Работа микрофона достойна всяческих похвал: он честно фильтрует все внешние шумы, и твой собеседник вряд ли услышит что-либо, кроме твоего голоса. Плюсы Эта гарнитура во многом схожа со своей младшей соратницей от SteelSeries. К примеру, в комплект поставки входит микшер и провод для подключения к Хbох 360. Длины его хватит для комфортного размещения на диване напротив экрана.
