Relative to other headsets, the Steel Sound 5H provides good sound and can be used to listen to music enjoyably, though it falls well short of audiophile standards.
A very good microphone for a gaming headset, it captures the voice clearly and delivers better, clearer communications to your friends and foes.
I’m rough with my headsets and headphones. That the Steel Sound 5H USB has lasted 6 months is an impressive feat. Let’s see if they make a year.
Price and Value
If the company behind the headset spent less on promotion and marketing, and transferred those savings onto the consumer, we’d be considerably more impressed. As it is, the 5H can be a good value – for an affluent hardcore gamer segment – but little else. Moreover, don’t expect these to sound like comparably-priced headphones dedicated to music.
