SteelSeries 7H 3.5mm/ USB Connector Circumaural Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Fantastic excluding the latest software 04/14/2014

This review is from: SteelSeries 7H 3.5mm/ USB Connector Circumaural Headset

Pros: Okay so first off this bought at a low price that is just awesome, and was bought to replace the Platronics Gamecon 780 that is just far too uncomfortable for having great sound. I will say this headset has fantastic sound quality for the price 30 usd. Now, the fit is definitely snug when first wearing this headset, but it loosens up relatively quickly and becomes quite comfortable for someone with even a larger head. Both stereo and surround sound are great quality, also this thing can blast music very well with those 50mm drivers. I overall very happy with this headset and other than the few hiccups I had with the sound card driver it has been great and hasssle free.

Cons: Software that is downloaded from the steelseries site is not going to work well with the surround sound of this headset being that you cannot turn the frequency from 48hz to 44.1, and that you cannot turn off the S/PDIF out causing this unbearable beeping in the background. Only way to get away from this problem is either to use this headset in stereo and or find the 1.2 version of the driver and download it over the 1.0.4 version that is out right now. I was having a very hard time finding it until I recalled my siberia v2 headset that this was replacing had the software and found it after some prodding around in the room. It is working great now.

Other Thoughts: Great headset overall after fixing up the software.

SteelSeries 61051SS 7H USB Headset
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great sound quality and nice aesthetics 04/13/2014

This review is from: SteelSeries 61051SS 7H USB Headset

Pros: So far the sound quality of this headset has been fantastic, and the price that I got it for has been even better. I have to say both the stereo and the virtual surround sound in of this headset sounds great from lowest volume to highest, to lows through highs. I am not an audio hardware expert, but have started to take the time now that my rig is fully customized to the point I am happy with as far as main components to focus on things like nice quality headsets for gaming, music, and movies. Which this headset sounds great for all 3 so far. I also ordered a sound card and have recently installed a two set 2.0 T20's and this headset has been a great edition to the group.

Cons: Main problem with this headset stemmed from the sound card software, being the 1.0.4 driver which has no options to change frequency and in not being able to do this when you use the 7.1 card with the headset and mic you get a constant beeping in the back round. The other problem is that no where on the internet including steelseries do they have the 1.2 driver for download. I went through hell to get it and was able to find my old siberia v2 software and install it over the newer version. It was then able to turn of the spf/out and change frequency to 44.1 instead of the normal 48hz. This will make the beeping in the surround sound go away, and make one realize what an awesome headset this is.

Other Thoughts: After the driver version fix this headset is just fantastic for a gaming headset that can be used for music and not fail at it. lol. So, if you can find one for 80 and or under it makes it that much sweeter. I was able to pick up a refurbished one for 30 $ on sale. It looks new and works great so far(knock on wood)

Plantronics GameCom 780 Stereo Corded Headset Recreational Comfortable Design
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Okay first off this is the first time I have gone with this brand, and I will say as far as sound quality on both stereo and dolby surround sound goes it is fantastic. As soon as I plugged it in and started listening to it on stereo I knew that it was good headset for the money, especially the sale that I got it for. Now, after downloading the sound card driver and hitting the faint blue button on the left speaker turns on dolby digital and the surround sound is fantastic on this headset. I have had other virtual 7.1 headsets and this one as far as sound quality and volume definitely wins in my experience. I would take in to account there was not all pros that I have experienced with this particular headset

Cons: One of the biggest and most immediate cons for me and which basically broke the deal with these for myself was the comfort level of this headset. Now, I have a larger sized skull so I know that perhaps other people may be fine with this headset, and am not in any way trying to persuade someone from trying this great sound quality head set. Just know both myself and my wife is definitely average head size had a hard time wearing this headset. I also feel that the plastic feel cheaper than many other head sets I have fooled with at this price range. Now it does not feel overly cheap and the sound quality alone would have me buy this a second time if only the comfort was there. I wore it for a few days, and honestly it does get better but not enough to the point of not feeling a sharp pain in the ears and or jaw. I am sure that the longer worn the more well fitted it becomes. I say if you are average head size and smaller you should be alright after the initial first couple days. I say give it a chance because if the comfort is not an issue then chances are you will really love this headset.

Other Thoughts: Great sound quality, affordable, comfort may be an issue, and finally wish they would of done more with the software options and giving maybe more options to the headset.
