Seconded: Another thumbs up for SteelSeries' H Wireless photo



I know that we brought you a full review of the SteelSeries H Wireless headset a few days back, but after trying them out at CES today I wanted to say a bit more about them. Chris did a fine job, but I liked these so much that I wanted to hit home a few more points.

First, the fit and finish on these is top notch. These are built wonderfully, and they look like a premium audio product. Yes, they work wonderfully for gaming, but would be equally at home in a home theater, or for music listening. They're also crazy comfortable.

They sound great, too. If you've read my audio product reviews on this site, you'll know that I'm a stickler for sound quality. A lot of the budget gaming headsets sound pretty bad with their low cost drivers and poor quality control. Hell, even some of the competition range stuff disappoints. SteelSeries usually does a pretty nice job with audio, and they killed it with these. Call of Duty: Ghosts in Dolby Surround blew me away.

SteelSeries skipped over wireless audio in the past as they didn't feel that Bluetooth audio was up to par. But with the H Wireless, their dual-band wireless gets rid of the delay and other audio issues that Bluetooth suffers from.

And the range! Holy crap, these have outstanding wireless range. I was able to move anywhere in SteelSeries large hotel suite without issue, but what really impressed was that I was able to leave the hotel room, go out into the hall, and walk a fair distance down the hall before they began cutting out. The range on the H Wireless beats any headset I've ever tried.

Yes, $299 is a lot of money. It's eyes-bulge-out kind of money, right? I understand. But I think you're getting your money's worth with these. You can get a wireless gaming headset for cheaper, but you're going to have a hard time finding one that looks, sounds, and feels as nice as this one.
