  • Broke second day, drums sound washed out
    Reviewed by Mill J - September 2, 2020

    I purchased this during the pandemic and when headphone returns are frowned upon with an unclear return policy. It broke the second day I used the headset, with the right ear cup having no sound at all. As I didn't want to stress the frontline workers at Best Buy arguing for return of an "opened headphone", I repaired it myself. There was no glue and I could get at everything with a #0 Phillips screwdriver. The ear cup has 30AWG magnet wire (or thinner), and there was a cold solder joint attaching the wire that goes to the driver and the wire that goes across the head band. Therefore after some light usage, the wires disconnected and therefore I lost sound on that ear cup. I fixed it by resoldering the joint. Internally, the headset does have stress reducing ridges for wires to sit in, but all the wires are 30AWG or thinner, so enough twists will probably wear it out, especially because the earcups can rotate 90 degrees. The repair took me about 15 minutes, which is easily less time than masking up and arguing. After the repair I was able to use the headset. PROS: * Good mid level sound and vocals on the headphone * Comfortable for glasses and big head (e.g. I pick the biggest size for bicycle helmets) * The microphone is clear and has good levels (no artificial "mic boost" needed for iPhone or Realtek sound card); it would be passable for a game stream but slightly low quality for a podcast * Can open for repairs without destroying it CONS: * Thin wire that broke on me * No holder, bag, or clip to hold the detached microphone * Drums in music sound washed out I give it two stars because of the decent microphone and repairablility, but wires are not robust enough to take the stress from rotating the earcups over time.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Almost Great
    Reviewed by KAnderson - September 24, 2021

    These were almost perfect. It's just the sound quality. It has superb noise cancelation, great audio distinction and are sort of comfortable. It loses in sound quality though. The sound just sounds unnatural. It sounded like I was shooting inside of a metal container. Footsteps were great but explosions, gunfire and everything else sounded poor. The search for a good budget headset continues. This one was almost it.

  • Solid!
    Reviewed by Alexander - May 12, 2021

    I was a little skeptical before purchasing these headphones but I am glad I did. Great sound and mic is pretty good for the price! SteelSeries always comes through with some great products and they didn't disappoint this time either. I would definitely buy another pair of SteelSeries headphones/gaming products in the future.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
