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.

2 out of 5 eggsCustomer service experience ruined an otherwise decent product.

Pros: -Hot swappable batteries are definitely nice.
-No interference problems

Cons: -Microphone quality is just okay. Not as crisp as other headsets but people could understand me.
-Range isn't nearly as advertised, One wall seems to be enough to cause issues sometimes.
-Joints are plastic and foam is thin. It's not terrible quality, but it's never going to last as long as I would expect a 300$ headset to last.
-Which leads to the real problem. Absolutely terrible customer service. Speaking with 5 different employees several different times and had to wait for a response for over 2 weeks before I was told they simple won't do any repairs outside the RMA process. Judging by the other reviews I've read even if you do go through the RMA process it can take months to go through that process as well.

Other Thoughts: My headset had a tiny little crack in it that expanded to become a big problem. So now my 300$ headset is not comfortably usable, and apparently steel series does not have any possible way to fix that. That coupled with exceptionally slow response times means I will not be continuing to try their products.

5 out of 5 eggsBest headset I ever had

Pros: 5/5 on sound quality
4.5/5 mic quality
5/5 battery life (the one headset that you LITERALLY never have to plug into anything
4/5 comfort

I wear it 8-12 hours a day, with school and work both online. It works amazing with my PC, Phone, and PS4.
the only time id replace this headset is with a newer version, IF SteelSeries made one in the future

Cons: a little more padding on the top would make this flawless.
It has an amazing mic already, I HAVE had better. but still far better than most

Other Thoughts: There are headsets in the same price range, that have a LITTLE better quality hearing and mic. but the interchangable battery and the fact that you litteraly never plug it in far outweigh those specs.

3 out of 5 eggsAwesome Sound Poor Execution

Pros: Outstanding Audio Quality, Wireless, includes all cables, lies flat on desk when not in use, comfortable to wear

Cons: Customer service, no sidetone / mic monitor, no software, no manual, doesn't really work right out of the box, terrible microphone, included optical cable is too short to be useful.

Other Thoughts: There are two outstanding features of this headset: Audio Quality and Wireless. The set is adjustable and can be bent for a perfect fit so they are comfy as well. An adjustable sidetone would be easy to add but Steelseries does not have it so shouting into the mic can become a problem. The mic itself is a horrible sounding afterthought of a microphone. It's not just terrible, it's advanced terrible and for a $300 headset it's a downright insult to the customer. Out of the box the maximum audio volume is unacceptably low but adjusting the chatmix fixes that. As far as I can tell Livemix doesn't do anything. There is no PC software or manual so figuring anything out is up to you and Google. I almost returned them because I couldn't hear the game so they really should set the default so that there is at least a good amount of volume out of the box. I actually only stumbled on the chatmix setting and found out that improves the volume. After emailing back and forth with customer service, I'm convinced that Steelseries is counting on their audio quality to maintain sales. Most professional reviews, unfortunately, put too much emphasis on audio quality and not enough on features. After doing a little research I found that most gamers appear to prefer sidetone. Steelseries says they don't think their customers use it so they didn't include it even though they could have easily. Well they include it but it doesn't work and you can't adjust it. It's super simple to implement, even $30 headphones have it, Steelseries doesn't think for your $300 that you deserve the choice. So in all, for your $300 you get a barebones headset, no instructions, no sidetone, a garbage mic and you support a company that doesn't really care about their customers if it means they can make one dollar more profit. What you do get is great audio quality, albeit other $300 headsets also offer that, all the cables you need, although the optical cable won't reach your desktop if you keep your tower on the floor, and a comfy fit. You can decide for yourself if $300 is worth it. I'm keeping mine because they do sound great and it's too much trouble to return them. Now that it's all set up, I can live with the lack of features that SHOULD be included with a high end headset. If the lack of sidetone or the other shortcomings don't bother you, they are a good headset. However, if you haven't already purchased them, it might be a good idea to look closely at the competition before making your final choice.

1 out of 5 eggsHeadset eventually stops working

Pros: OK Sound, good mic, comfortable.

Cons: The batteries stopped being chargeable, charging can be buggy. Light on features. SteelSeries customer service is pretty bad, it's basicly set up to hope you don't reply in time, then they'll cancel your RMA. They didn't accept my newegg receipt as proof as purchase and they made me take pictures of my headset with a QR code they made me print out. There is no customer service number to call that I can easily find.

Other Thoughts: Horrible RMA process. They don't recognize NewEgg receipts as proof of purchase. They make you take pictures of product and close your RMA in an unreasonably short time frame. It's a shame the customer service is so bad, because they do design interesting products that are very tempting to buy. SteelSeries should realize that I would have been a loyal customer if they increased their product quality and customer service.

Cons: Expensive

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality, worse service

Pros: I bought these for the swappable batteries and what was supposed to be a good experience

Cons: These headphones are quite uncomfortable after only a few hours. The batteries stopped charging in the transmitter so eventually they are unusable. I contacted steelseries support and they chose to ignore my RMA questions and said that I can send them back and if they are deemed not defective they will be discarded and no refund will be given. WHAT IS THAT?

Other Thoughts: still searching for the perfect wireless headset

2 out of 5 eggsOK headset, Horrible customer service

Pros: -Great coverage, able to walk all over house without dropping sound even when going through multiple walls
-great at blocking out other sounds
-Better sound that other wireless headsets ie 930's a50's corsair 2000's

Cons: -very high clamping force on larger heads, had to take them off every 45 mins because they were digging into my head due to the cheap ear pads that flatten out when used for longer periods of time.
- mic has noticeably more "noise" than the modmic I used for a long time. but that is a very high standard to put it against

- I have a big head and 25 days after purchase while just sliding them on my head the little bit of plastic holding the headband to the muffs just flat out broke in two. Now I have had this happen before with other brands and usually a simple RMA and It will get replaced.

NOT WITH STEELSERIES I opened a ticket and sent my my headset in right away. They received it almost 2 month ago now and I still haven't got the replacement they said they would send.

They also just closed the ticket I had opened with them with no updates. I am not on my fourth ticket and still haven't got a response from a rep since 6/26 they just close tickets over and over again. Also I am not alone the subreddit they have is full of people in the same boat as me, Others have started spamming their twitter and Facebook. I will updated this if this ever gets resolved but as of now I think I will never get the replacement they promised me and I am out the headset I paid for That I may have been able to find my own fix for too

2 out of 5 eggsworst customer service/RMA

Pros: Headset is comfortable and i love how easy it is to connect to everything . The sound is great as well

Cons: It's a shame the company doesn't care about their customers after they have spent money. I have never had such a bad experience with a company in my life. I have put in 5 RMA request as well as posted on their social websites to get and answer on if they had received my headset. I sent in the tracking number and the source i used for shipping. I still havent heard back from them. All they do is close my tickets with no phone call or any type of response.I feel helpless and very angry cause it looks like i have just lost a 300 dollar pair of headset. Do not trust this company because if you need them after your purchase you will not be able to contact them at all. Keep your money and go to another company that treats their customers right. I would have given this review a 1 star but the product i liked its the company that has turned me off. I will not be buying any other products from them ever. SO now i have no headsets and have to go buy another pair from a different company because of SteelSeries.

2 out of 5 eggsBroke in 3 months, 2 months (still waiting) for RMA

Pros: Replaceable AND rechargeable batteries, 2 included with headset.
Good sound quality.
Very nice base station hardware/software

these pros are the only thing stopping me from a 1 egg review.

Cons: WAY TOO MUCH PLASTIC FOR A $300 HEADSET.
SteelSeries is known for decent quality in all their wired headsets so why does this thing have cheap *expletive deleted* plastic headband and plastic on plastic balljoint interface that allows for the angle adjustment on the earpieces; I know this because that is what broke on my headset, right side broke completely leaving earpiece dangling from the wire, otherside showed signs of cracking and was near breaking.

All of this just from daily use and taking it on and off my head. Headset was always hung on armrest of chair when not in use and treated with respect (its a freaking $300 headset after all)

Other Thoughts: Below is a concise version of my RMA experience with Steelseries trying to attain a replacement headset:

(RMA ticket handled by "Russ B."

5/5/15: RMA ticket made
5/7/15: initial response, told to input address and select it for RMA to move forward. complied with request and responded in the ticket that i had done so.
5/14/15: No response from SteelSeries(SS), so i post another message in the ticket.
5/15/15: SS responds that address has been received, no further instructions.
5/17/15: I ask how we are going to proceed\
5/18/15: RMA has been approved, shipping instructions are given.
5/25/15: I post that it is shipped and include a tracking number.
6/1/15: SS posts that headset has been received.
6/2/15: Replacement authorized.
6/10/15: I post "hey its been over a week, whats up?"
6/21/15: SS states that they wont be sending a new headset and that i will instead be getting a coupon to buy something of equal or lesser value from the SS store.
6/22/15: I post that I really hope this is a fluke and that its been ALMOST A MONTH SINCE THEY RECEIVED MY HEADSET.
6/25/15: SS posts that they have run out of coupons and need to print more, they should get back to me in "a few days"
7/2/15: I post that I would like to speak to a supervisor.

So hear I stand, with no other option then to publicly shame a company I used to respect in an attempt to get my headset back.

I have so far received no compensation or even a return of my broken headset.

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.
