SteelSeries 5HV3 Gaming Headset-2 The SteelSeries 5HV3 mars the first time I have reviewed a headset from SteelSeries H tournament line of gaming headphones. The new 5H now features the newest generation of SteelSeries audio drivers with a custom-engineered soundscape for clear and detailed sound without distortion.; and a a custom-engineered soundscape features a wide dynamic range, which makes it possible for 5Hv3 to deliver a balanced and linear. It shows, with the  5HV3 providing  crystal clear audio both for gaming and music playback is truly astonishing; especially when you start to consider its $79.99 price point. Other features to consider is the retractable microphone system, with a mobile end with a single 3-pole 3.5mm jack included. Pull it out when you need it. Hide it in the left earcup when you don’t. The ends of the 5Hv3 are swappable so that you can use your headset with your PC, Mac, phones, MP3 players and tablets.

The 5HV3 are super comfortable headset and they need to be if you are going to be gaming for several hours. these do the job. But what really strikes me the most about these headset is the fact that they cover all basis on cost, build & sound quality. Plus the sound great when listening to music. Over I do like them and I would recommend them to any gamer out.  Which is why I think they are pretty cool.
