Experience: 5 Years


Near perfect 3d soundscape, amazing sound for a headset and better sound than a lot of the headphones at the same price range, Usb soundcard offers great options specified for the headset, all parts are removable for travel or customized cord length, VERY sturdy design.
Drivers are not often updated which isn't a problem as I have never had an issue with them.
I have owned these headphones for over 5 years and still absolutely love them. The design is insanely sturdy as I drop  my headset an average of twice a night for the past 5 years and other than some scrapes it is perfect. The sound is excellent for a headset and the virtual 7.1 available through the usb sound card makes for a near perfect 3d soundscape in game. I dare you to use these in an fps and not be accused of hacking. No one will ever sneak up behind you ever again. Tip top recommendation for a serious gamer. I have converted all my friends to steelseries and they have never been happier. Do not pass these up! Check out steelseries.com and find great gamer gear that fits your needs.

Experience: 6 Months


- Great bass and quality.
- Nice long extension cord included.
- Cord has a nice feel to it, not the standard plastic-ish coating.
- Had to RMA my first set because the left channel stopped working.
I've used the headset with the included sound card (virtual 7.1 is pretty cool to play around with) and with a Auzentech Forte (amplified headphone plug) and it sounds good all the time. However after several hours of usage it does start to hurt the back of my ears a bit, but this changes from person to person.

Experience: 2 Months


excellent performance in CS
not so good at movie and mp3
I bought this about 5 month ago, it has an excellent performance in CS, when i used it in CS, the foot steps sound so clear that my enemies thought i was cheating....,however when it is used in movie, i dont feel good, then give it to my sister who was in a clan and then change to siberia.if you want to buy a gaming headphone, this is the perfect choice, however, you shall never expect its performance in mp3 and movie

Experience: 2 Days


looks (subjective)
mic is decent
can take them apart for easy transport? (is this really necessary?)
horrible sound, just terrible..
cost to performance ratio
I purchased these last Thursday and had the opportunity to test them at a friends' place over the weekend (he had raved to me about these headphones a few times over the past few months)... they were on sale so I thought I would jump at the chance to get them at a good price (later I checked a local place, i.e. no shipping, and they were only $3 more than NCIX's sale price)... anyway, these sound HORRIBLE!! We tried them out on the Left 4 Dead 2 demo using my own cans (which are a piece of crap) and these... onboard sound with the original cans sounded WAY better.. plugging the original ones into the USB dongle from these gave sound that was vastly superior to the 5H V2's. For reference, we tested against Plantronics .Audio 365's .. which I would not recommend to anyone either. But they sounded so incredibly bad that I'm absolutely astonished.. various sound settings were used as I thought it was just a configuration problem but nothing could make them sound even remotely decent.

Experience: 1 Years


Very durable, well built headset. I have dropped this thing countless times, tugged the cord out of its attachment and everything else you could think of with no problems occuring. The headset doesnt touch my ears at all without making my ears overly hot. I can wear the headphones for up to 6 hours without even noticing they're on. Sound is amazing in games and pretty good for music. You could find better headphones if your an audiophile but then you wouldn't really be looking for a headset anyways. Mic is clear, and retractable option is very nice. I could not recommend any other headset in this price range better than this.
The driver is annoying when first setting up but I got through it quickly either way. There was also this problem with ventrillo where people could hear a beeping when i talked. I could not find a solution anywhere and finally found out all you have to do is change the frequency of the mic in the driver from 48 to 44 and blamo, its fixed.
I am very very glad I got this headset and would definitely buy it again. If your looking for great gaming headphones and crystal clear mic, this is for you.

Retractable microphone
Easy on the ears
Not the best to listen to movies/tv(low volume)
Overall, I'm pretty satisfied with this unit as a headset. Played a few hours with it on the PS3 and it worked perfectly and most importantly, they were very comfortable to wear. The only negative I would say with these headphones are, if you are using just the analog headphone jack and not the usb connection, you'll notice the volume on them is quite low.

Experience: 1 Years


Good sound
The usb sound card is better then my ac97 onboard soundcard
nice microphone
really really comfortable
not enough bass
I bought this to compete online at counter-strike source
the headset is doing his job giving a nice quality sound and ability to hear footstep. The sound lack of bass but I got used to it after a while. The usb microphone has a huge difference of sound quality compare to my onboard ac97 audio card.

The good thing about this headset is that it is really comfortable for your ear wont hurt at all.

I recommand this or check out the hd 555 from sennheiser it's good as well combine with a good sound card.

Experience: 1 Years


-pretty good sound
-extremely comfortable.
-decent for games
-no base
-can hear everything, may or may not be a good thing
-usb sound card is trash
i've had these for about a year now and its pretty good, people say its not sturdy but it has no damages whatsoever and the cables are nicely intact because of the sleeving. these are also the most comfortable headset ever.

Experience: 1 Years


Very comfortable
Mouse can be brought back into the headphone
Doesn't fall off
looks sick
Microphone beeps when using the usb card
steelseries usb soundcard is terrible
Great headset, works good for long period gaming. Will not hurt your ears after 8-9 hours of constant play. Nice headset was better than my siberias

Experience: 5 Days


retractable mic
decent sound quality
usb sound card
As many would expect, the usb sound card is nothing compared to dedicated sound cards. I bought it for a friend and right now he is very satisfied. He mainly plays CS and he likes the sound quality. Not the best headphones around this price point for music and games, I personally got the HD555s and they are a charm with a dedicated sound card. Overall these aren't bad headphones.
