2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great audio and microphone when working.

Cons: When it works it's awesome. The problem is that it failed twice in 6 months. First time the headset second the audio mixer. Steelseries support is very good, it's covered for a year. The only problem is you have to pay for shipping to them every time. This will be the last headset I buy from them.

2 out of 5 eggsNice "concept"

Pros: Light, this headset is extremely light. Mic, retractable in ear cup is very handy and convenient. Sound gets loud, very loud.
Ability to break down mic for transport is nice.

Cons: Cord from mic to mixer is way to short. Mixer doesn't fit to controller snugly. Makes humming noise that never goes away. Live mix cuts too much game sound out when people speak making it extremely hard to hear anything in game. Mixer concept and live mix are good IDEAS! However they were not completed and properly tested here. Should have not been released with these problems.

Other Thoughts: It's a steel series!!! With my personal experiences with them I'm not pleased (mouse and headset). Both are cheap plastic that look good unboxing, yet lack quality and malfunction soon after use. Will NEVER buy another steel series product, they are just made so cheap!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat gaming headset often overlooked

Pros: Great sound(stereo not surround)
comfortable even after several hours of use
can take a beating(I dont abuse my headset, but it shows no signs of wear n tear).
microphone slides into headset for more compact use, like listening to music.
cost

Cons: wires!!! Yeah its to be expected when it comes to these headsets.

Other Thoughts: I got this for playing on the xbox 360. Love them! When I went looking most of the B&M stores only carried trittons and turtlebeach. While those are fine, I wanted something different.

Pros: It's a really comfortable headset, with great sound quality. The best thing about it is that it has a really good noise cancellation system. I also like the look of it, even better than the Siberia headset.

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: This is my favorite headset. I used to use the Siberia, but I switched and have not regretted the decision
