SteelSeries 61050 7H Headset
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Avoid this company 03/20/2014

This review is from: SteelSeries 61050 7H Headset

Pros: Good positional audio
Decent overall sound quality

Cons: Bad build quality
Tech support is almost non existent

Other Thoughts: I have owned this headset for a little over a year now. After about 4 months I started to get a buzzing in the left ear of the headset, I contacted Steelseries support and after 3 emails and a week of waiting they finally got back to me. They said it would definitely the cord, so they said they would send me out a new cord. After a week of waiting and no tracking number I contacted them again and was told that somehow my information didn't get entered so they had to reenter it. So then I had to wait another week for the cord to finally arrive. Surprise surprise, cord came in, same buzzing noise. Contacted them again and waited... there was a lot of waiting going on... Long story shortened, we eventually got a RMA headset to me but it took almost 2 months to get it, again, a lot of waiting. On top of that, all shipping was paid for by myself since they couldn't send me print labels for some reason.

Anyway, it's now been almost a year from when I bought the original set, and 6 months since my RMA and while gaming a week or so ago the left earcup on my headset literally fell off. Like right off my head while playing. I was able to push it back together but there is some sort of cheap plastic snap that broke, this worked for a few days, pushing it back together every half hour or so, but now it's completely dead.

Anyway, I'm not going to ever buy Steelseries again after this whole experience. Their tech support and customer service is just awful, and they are the slowest in the industry. Their forgetfulness and lack of making it right by at least refunding my shipping during my extremely long RMA process has permanently left a sour taste in my mouth.

Pros: Picked up one of these as a temp replacement to my GTX295 while it was being RMA'd. This card was a wonderful replacement. It handled every game I own, maybe not at top detail, but medium-high on everything. It performed on par with normal 9800GT's which was surprising since its a Low Power model. Ran very cool, overclocked very high, and was very stable.

Cons: I had to take it back for a refund, I now miss this little beauty of a card. Wish I could have kept it.

Other Thoughts: I did not get this card at newegg. However I figured I would let everyone know that this is a wonderful cheaper alternative to a higher end GPU, it performed very well for the price.
