SteelSeries 5H v2 is one of the most popular gaming headsets on the planet. This headset has been used by talented gamers to win major international events like Electronic Sports World Cup, World e-Sport Games, World Series of Video Games, Kode 5, World Cyber Games, Samsung Euro Championship, ESL Extreme Masters and many others.
When wearing the SteelSeries 5H v2 you'll immediately notice the enormous full-size ear cushions which gently fit around your ears and reduce background noise. The comfort is something that has to be experienced first hand, either at a friends house or at one of the many LAN-centers and Internet cafées that offers the headset to their customers.
The headset features a custom-engineered soundscape designed to enhance performance and immersion in FPS games. This headset was developed and optimized specifically for in-game sound frequencies found in the most popular shooters - making in-game sounds like footsteps, alerts and gunfire especially clear. You will be able to hear and pinpoint the location of your opponents, often before they hear you.
The SteelSeries 5H v2 can easily be dismantled into 3 separate parts, that easily fit into a bag or a carrying case. This makes transportation of the headset both easy and safe. The pull-out microphone is practically invisible when not in use.
SteelSeries 5H v2 FAQ:
Q: What is the diffence between the SteelSeries 5H v2 and the SteelSeries 5H v2 USB?
A: The USB soundcard. This version does not include a soundcard.
Q: What's the difference between SteelSeries 5H v2 and the other "gaming headsets" out there?
A: SteelSeries 5H v2 was actually built for gaming, featuring a custom-engineered soundscape created specifically for in-game sounds. We isolated key sound frequencies used in the most popular eSport-titles and optimized the headset to produce these sounds especially clear. If we use Counter-Strike as an example we focused on sounds like footsteps, gunfire, reloads and grenades bouncing off a wall. The result is that key gaming sounds will sound clearer and it will be easier to hear and navigate your surroundings when playing - giving you an advantage over your opponents. SteelSound 5H v2 doesn't just reproduce sound, it actually enhances critical in-game sounds, you're playing to win - right?
Notice the lack of marketing gimmicks here? SteelSeries seems to really believe in their product - so much so that they seem to take a very laid back approach to the promotional side of the business (which I assume means they have more time to develop kick-ass kit!).
