PROFESSIONAL

Headset

PROFESSIONAL AUDIO WITHOUT COMPROMISE

H Wireless cuts the cord on our highly successful H Series headset line to deliver exceptional audio in a brilliantly designed wireless headset. Crystal clear audio and cutting edge performance on all your platforms. Don't settle. Go limitless.


Headset

LAG FREE

H Wireless is continuously frequency hopping to preempt and circumvent interference. The competition waits for interference to be detected to change channels. We just avoid it completely.


Headset

DOLBY® AUDIO

Immerse yourself in the incredible virtual 7.1 soundscape. While most headsets simply feature Dolby Headphone, we feature three different Dolby technologies: Dolby Headphone, Dolby Digital, and Dolby Pro Logic IIx.


Headset

LOW LATENCY

H Wireless delivers the lowest latency in the industry. Many wireless headsets have variable latency, where audio sometimes slows down or speeds up depending on the lag. Our audio stream is fixed, giving you consistent and smooth audio delivery.


MULTIPLATFORM

Headset

PERFORMANCE ON ANY PLATFORM

Why settle for listening to high end audio on just one device when you can have it throughout your entire life? We designed this headset to be as flexible as you are. Wherever and whatever your entertainment is, H Wireless has you covered.


Headset

VERSATILITY

We built a multiplatform headset and then threw in even more connection options just to be safe. H Wireless works on Xbox, PlayStation, PC, Mac, home entertainment systems, phones, and tablets. It also works wirelessly on the Playstation 4. We even threw in a Sound Share port for when a friend wants to join in on the experience.


Headset

COUCH CONTROL

The on-earcup controls make adjustments quick and intuitive. With the control wheel you can adjust volume and navigate the most commonly used settings right from your seat and see them change on the transmitter's clear, bright OLED screen. Adjust the mix, EQ, and more. You don't even have to get up.


Headset

TWO SWAPPABLE BATTERIES

Never lose power, never go wired. With so many possible sources of entertainment, we don't want you running out of battery mid-session. Knowing that, we included two 20-hour lithium-ion batteries, which can be changed mid-action without the hassle of any cables or wires. The spare battery charges inside the transmitter. Ready when you need it.


ELEGANCE

Headset

LIVING ROOM ELEGANCE

Looks aren't everything? Tell that to the ugly headsets. While we believe audio comes first and foremost, it doesn't hurt that H Wireless has a simple, yet striking design. Both the headset and the transmitter offer up a modern allure that assures it won't look out of place at home or on the go.


Headset

STUNNING DESIGN

The iconic H Series colors return with a stylish matte black look throughout most of the headset. A glossy finish adorns the sides of the ear cups while a touch of SteelSeries Orange highlights the inner ear cup and stitching. Memory foam padding on the headband and earcups provides enduring comfort for long sessions.


Headset

BEAUTIFUL DISPLAY

Our unique audio transmitter features a stunning OLED display. Profiles, audio sources, battery life, and volume are shown with crystal clear moving and still visuals. No tiny blinking lights to try and decipher. The large display makes it easy to see and operate from the comfort of your couch.


FEATURES

Headset

LIVEMIX

Don't want to miss out on the epic audio action when your friends aren't talking? LiveMix automates our ChatMix feature and automatically turns up chat and turns down the game audio when voice communication is detected.


Headset

CHATMIX

Allows you to control the audio level balance between the action in your game and the communication from your team. Simply turn up the chat audio to ensure hearing your friends over the explosions. Or turn down your friends if you want to focus on the action.


Headset

EQ

Fine-tune H Wireless's audio with its five-band equalizer. Tailor the sound to your preferences or style of play. And if you're not an audio whiz, just select from the built-in presets for all kinds of games and entertainment settings.

1 out of 5 eggsPOOR QUALITY

Pros: It's wireless?

Cons: Poor quality sound compared to other $300 wireless headsets.

Has WEAK bass even when tweaking equalizer to max.

Feels like cheap plastic and cheap pleather earphones.
It's bound to break and the headphones are going to disintegrate in time without a doubt.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your time buying this headset based on other reviews or from the popular Linus tip video. I'm fairly certain he was paid to make these headphones appear godly, it certainly gained my interests. So I bought both these headphones and the universal Astro A50s. The A50s blow these poor quality headphones out of the water in terms of bass, clarity and quality of materials used for long-term durability.

5 out of 5 eggsA very high quality gaming headset

Pros: Pros:
Sturdy build quality
Very comfortable during long periods of use
Sound quality is outstanding and easily rivals that of wired headsets
Unique hot-swappable battery tech
Mic quality seems fine. I do live stream, and online game a lot and I haven't heard any complaints.

Cons: The advertised wireless range is 40ft. Well, I haven't taken this into an open field to find out if this is true, but your house most likely has doors and hallways and things that might obscure line of sight. The more realistic wireless range is like 20 ft. I can't make it to the kitchen which is ~20 feet away on the same floor, without this losing connection. So take the claim of 40ft with a grain of salt...
Not worth an egg because the pros outweigh the con, but something to think about.

Other Thoughts: Something to think about is that in my experience, each battery seems to last somewhere in the realm of 8 hours. You get 2 batteries and the idea of this headset is that you'll swap one out as soon as it's getting low or dead. This is a nice idea because you don't have to remember to plug it in to charge overnight or if you are a binge gamer that sits and games for very extended periods of time. It will take some time to get used to, but I'm beginning to become fond of it.

I upgraded from a Steelseries Siberia v2, which I've had for several years, and so far I find this headset to be more comfortable, and the sound quality is at least as good as the siberia. Possible even better but I haven't sat down and really tried to compare the two.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid headset

Pros: Good sound quality, nice fit and finish, battery life is as stated 20+ hours, easy to set up. Haven't had them long but so far the games I've played through them sound amazing to the point where I find myself turning my head to see if the sounds I heard were actually behind me.

Cons: The plastic that the ear cups attach to was somewhat on the cheap side which was surprising. Also, It's fine for me but I could see how some people would want them to get a bit louder. I keep them at full volume most of the time and I have no problem hearing the most subtle nuances but I'm sure for some folks they could be louder

Other Thoughts: I was a bit nervous dropping $300 on a headset that has a ton of bad reviews regarding the customer support but they really do sound great. I'm praying I don't have to experience any of the customer support nightmares like some other users but so far so good. I've used them for games and movies on my ps4 and I truly believe as far as headsets go you can't buy a better pair. Hope it lasts!

3 out of 5 eggsNeeds improvement but passable...

Pros: - Wireless range and clarity very good.
- Mic sensitivity very good and clarity of recording very good.
- Setup easy.
- Base station options seem very rich although haven't experimented much with the features so I can't attest to whether they are practical or gimmicky. ie the "livechat" or "chatmix" features.

Cons: - Comfort. Specifically the compression/tension of the headset. I am far from being fat or on the large size head scale, and these things are tight. The pleather is also a minor annoyance and not my personal favorite. Hopefully this gets better over time... FYI, It should be noted I wear glasses with my headsets.
- Batteries. Many people list this as a pro however my personal view is this is a tedious maintenance task of swapping out batteries. I wish you could plug the headset into the base station and charge, but you can't. You have to swap out the batteries.

Other Thoughts: My review is based on having something to compare this headset against. I also own the Skullcandy Plyr 1 7.1 high end wireless headset for which i reviewed on newegg as well. I believe I gave the Skullcandy 2 eggs because of the cheap plastic construction and durability.

Personally I think the Skullcandy was more comfortable than the Steel H. The tension wasn't as constricting on the Skullcandy and the ear cups were cloth (my personal preference).

Also, just a personal preference of mine, but I think I prefer the boom mic over the retractable. I found the boom mic more convenient for taking a drink or eating something compared to the retractable as you can just flip the boom Mic to the up position. Every time you need to move the Steel H Mic out of the way you need to re-bend it back into proper position.... which i find to be a major pain. I am constantly fiddling with the Mic 3-4 times after a retraction to get perfect again. The best of both worlds for me would be a flip Mic that is bendable for perfect mouth placement.

The sound quality between both 7.1 headsets are fairly indistinguishable to my ears, so it's a toss up as far as I am concerned.

In the end, I can't really recommend either headset as they both have their annoyances when compared to the price. On comfort alone, I'd choose Skullcandy as I would favor comfort over features. For the novice youtuber/game recordings with voice... you'll get better quality with the Steel H but given the preface of "novice" both Mic's are audible in recordings. So if your not going for production quality, does this Mic difference really matter to you??? my vote would be no...

Overall I am disappointed in the Wireless headset arena having purchase 2 of the top most expensive brands that have received somewhat positive reviews. The perfect headset seems to be an elusive dream for manufactures as you can't find reviews where people are in the 90+ percent happy column.

Hope this helps in your decision making as I feel you'd only be making this purchase if you had disposable income.

Pros: -Battery does last 20H+
-dual battery is an insanely effective concept

5 out of 5 eggsPretty great

Pros: -Great sound - Bass isn't overpowering, highs and mids aren't tinny, overall very satisfied with the sound of these cans.
-Great microphone - The microphone sounds great, and it's almost too -sensitive.
-Very comfortable to wear. Not too heavy, but sometimes I'll need to readjust.
-Wireless range is alright. I can go anywhere in my apartment, as well as my home back home with very little trouble with dead spots. I can even go outside, but not very far.
-Receiver works well.
-Ability to control EQ and volume from the headset is a GODSEND. I love this feature and will miss it if I ever get another headset.
-Battery life. I can go pretty much a full day on one battery, and the fact that you can easily charge one battery while using the other means you'll always have power. They're very quick to swap once you get the hang of it as well.
-Different sound input. I love that these have support for optical ports.
-Looks. These things are beautiful. A little big, but that's to be expected.

Cons: -Price. While this headset is amazing, 300 dollars is really steep, and makes you consider whether or not it's worth it.
-Build quality. These are mostly well constructed, but the headband feels like it could break somewhat easily, and the adhesive that connects the padding to the headband is starting to come off after a couple months of use.
-Mobile phone use. It says that this headset supports use of a mobile device, but I couldn't set it up right, or it just doesn't work. Not a huge deal, as I'm using these for PC.
-The boom for the microphone, while I like the fact that it retracts, it doesn't play too nicely with bending it to your liking. It'll bend in the general direction you want it to, but it doesn't offer complete control.

Other Thoughts: I haven't tested these on a console, but apparently they're supported.
Volume control is done completely through the receiver/headset. Windows Volume Mixer doesn't change the overall volume. Of course you can change the volume of specific programs as you normally would, but changing the master volume does nothing. Not a con necessarily, but you have to get used to it. This also means that a mute button or volume controls on your keyboard won't work.
It's slim pickings for wireless headphones with good sound, and most of the options are going to be around this price point. So if you need some wireless cans for chat and gaming, these are pretty hard to beat. I love this headset overall.

4 out of 5 eggsafter owning them a while

Pros: comfy on the ears
great sound

Cons: tight fit or large head
took a bit to wear them in but they fit comfy now

Other Thoughts: the plate you have to take off to change the battery is annoying, would have prefered to just pop it in like the charger stand

construction needs a bit of work

mine have started turning off randomly, probably due to loose wiring, might be because i leave em on my head 24/7 nearly x)

1 out of 5 eggsWorst customer service ever

Pros: It HAD great range, great quality of sound and great battery life.
The separate inputs on the base station allowed for easy volume control from simultaneous sources.

Cons: TL;DR
I bought a 300$+ headset, it was defective. I sent it in for replacement 5 months ago. They are out of stock.

Details:
When i received them, they had a white noise problem in the left earpiece.
I sent them in for replacement after moving to a new house. (to be sure they would be returned to the correct address)
They were received in their warehouse in July 2014.
It is now Nov 16, 2014, and still haven't gotten them back.
Their help desk is a nightmare. You cannot call, only create tickets. Getting a reply from them can take LONGER than 18 days, just to get a reply on asking a question.
I have the transcripts saved. (not joking)

They sent me the wrong headset on August 21, 2014. I tried to contact them through the "zen help desk", and couldn't get a reply until September 10, 2014.
I had to harass their facebook page and create 30+ extra tickets just to get SOME KIND of attention, and even still, it took days.

The reason they have not sent me a replacement headset yet is:
"<My name>,

The wireless is out of stock. We sent the 5h to help get you by until the wireless is back in stock. We will send it out automatically when it comes in.

Regard,
Russ
SteelSeries"

After this, they closed my ticket. I didn't even get an e-mail indicating why.

Apparently this is normal practice. If a ticket isn't updated, its automatically closed.
You read that correctly, if they ignore you, their system will close your ticket.

Needless to say, i will never buy one of their products again.

Other Thoughts: Stay away, get something from another company.
