Steelsound 5H v2 Gaming Headset

Club Overclocker
19 October 2006
  • Conclusion: After several hours of listening to music, watching movies and gaming it was clear to me that the headset was lacking in its ability to reproduce bass.  Even playing with the equalizer, I could not get any real bass.  It sounded like I was listening to music with the bass set to 0 and the treble set to 10.  Giving a rating on a device that is very open to personal opinion is very difficult.  Steelseries has produced a very well constructed headset.

SteelSound 5H USB

12 July 2006
  • Summary: This headset performs exptionally well. And priced at €89.90/$119, it really gives you great value for money, considering both performance and that you get a USB soundcard. When it comes to sound quality this headset is right at the top along with Sennheiser PC 160. SteelSound really managed to create a headset that not only is durable, but also performs well.
  • Pros: Sound quality, Comfort, Durability, Bang for the $, USB soundcard included., Gaming performance, Design (Can be split for safe transportation)
  • Cons: Microphone's durability, Design (Isn't all that pretty to look at)

SteelSeries SteelSound 5H v2 USB Headset Video Review

19 June 2006
  • Summary: The SteelSound 5H v2 USB is an optimized version of the original SteelSound 5H USB headset. I reviewed the original headset in 2005 and thought it was an excellent product. V2 now has an improved microphone, larger and more comfortable ear cushions, additional frame pressure so it fits securely on your head, and a few more technical improvements.

SteelSeries SteelSound 5H v2

7 March 2007
  • Conclusion: Det finns gott om headset anpassade för spel ute på marknaden. De flesta är riktigt eländiga Clas Ohlson-varianter som har samma ljudmässiga finess som de där pappmuggarna och snöret man försökte leka telefon med i lekskolan. Nej, spelar man mycket så är det få saker som är så viktiga som ljudet. Spelar du mycket PC så är det oftast hörlurar som gäller och då är inte bara ljudkvalitén viktig utan också hörlurarnas komfort och ergonomi.
  • Pros: Lätta och mycket sköna, smart mikrofon och bra ljud
  • Cons: Fippligt liten fjärrkontroll och skarp diskant
