In-Line Controls

An integrated volume controller on the double braided cable cord of the 5Hv3 offers a microphone mute switch for instant control without having to navigate through software settings.

Retractable Microphone

The retractable microphone in the left earcup makes this headset perfect for gaming without having the microphone being an annoying device hanging out all the time. Pull it out when you need it, hide it in the earcup when you don’t.

Easy to Carry

The SteelSeries 5Hv3 gaming headset is especially popular and loved at LAN-events and internet cafés around the world. The ability to dismantle the headset into 3 pieces for easy carrying and transportation makes it the first choice headset for many gamers.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My first impression on unpacking these headphones was that they were very light- too light, I thought, to deliver good sound and extended bass. And so I was pleasantly surprised to discovered that these 'phones deliver really excellent extended bass response. It's not the thumpa-thumpa one-note boombox resonance some headphones deliver, either; it's an exceptionally clear and accurate reproduction. I listened to a wide range of music through these phones, and I can say that I would have no problem using these for music listening, apart from their utility for gaming and communications.

As I noted, they're extremely lightweight, which means you can almost (but not quite) forget you're wearing them. The cushions are very comfortable, and made of a material that breathes, so you don't find yourself with sweaty ears after a long session. The microphone can be instantly adjusted for length and position, or retracted into the headset at the touch of a finger. SOund quality from the microphone is very good as well. The cords are fabric covered, which should protect the wires from abrasion, and the twin stereo plugs can be swapped for an an Apple iOS style four-contact microphone so you can plug them into your iPad (as I did) or iPhone. In addition to gaming, they're also excellent for Skype or other communications use.

All in all, a very nice package that delivers first rate sound and ease of use at a fair price.

One year update: Last week, while putting these on, the headband snapped in two at what looks like a weak point. They still work, so they were taped up and continue to soldier on.

I have only owned these for one day one day, so keep that in mind. I got these for $50 on sale, for that price this is a very good headset. Right out of the box though, and this is still my main concern, is that these are just cheaply made plastic headphones...what isn't made out of plastic these days though? Unless you feel like spending 5x the amount....The thing is they really cheaped out on the build for these. All that needs to be done is to make some of the sections a couple millimeters thicker in diameter. Since they made them so thin just giving this headset a lite shake makes me afraid they're going to fall apart. I'm really worried that one of the earmuffs is going to break off over time.

Other than that I love this headset. The sound quality will leave the audiophile in you disappointed, at the same time the sound of these is almost refreshing. This headset isn't leveled out to have the modern sound of mixes you hear on songs today, and they don't sound like Beats. Both those make these worth buying. They'll give you a decent level of audio quality (especially for $50) and they didn't mess up the EQ on them by cranking up the high and low end. You can actually listen to a song and not just hear BASS BASS BASS. Again- that isn't to say they couldn't be better.

The mic I haven't really tested in full extent. Just me going into a recording program and doing a test, then a couple rounds in CS:GO. It sounded fine when I was listening to playback, and everyone seemed to be hearing me without problem in game. I love that it's retractable, takes away a lot of the awkwardness of wearing a headset like this. Plus the mic is extremely easy to adjust and holds its position.

I truly do love using this headset. At first I thought the mic was detachable as well as retractable and what not. I wasn't disappointed at all though. The mic is clearly out of view and the mic is crystal clear when talking with teammates. I won't find use for using the mic on public while using my phone since I'll look freaking ridiculous. The sound quality was awesome. I didn't start gaming right away with this set. I went straight to iTunes and listened to a couple of songs that I liked. There was just enough bass and everything. It was like a dream. I fired away CSGO and found myself in a casual match. Let me tell you right now, that there were so many times with my previous headphones where I didn't pick up footsteps which killed me. With this, I did 180 degree spin kills when someone was behind me. I survived for quite a while. This is truly tournament grade, but amazing for music as well.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These are fairly light weight and comfortable to wear for extended periods. They also don't pinch my temples like some other headsets I've tried, which end up giving me a headache after a half hour or so. The ear pieces fit around my ears, making them more comfortable over longer periods of time as well as helping to block out ambient noises.

My biggest disappointment, though, is the sound. The sound is clear and should be perfectly fine for voice communications and things like that, but music sounds dull, lacking richness and depth. There's not much bass in them.

Sure, these things break down for easy transport by disconnecting the top middle piece, but why? I'd rather just have collapsible headphones. The ear pieces themselves don't swivel, so you're stuck with a fairly rigid fit. In all fairness, most headphones are like this, but I've gotten spoiled with those that at least conform a little bit to the shape of my head.

These headphones come with an audio extension cord that adds a few more feet to its rich, which is nice if you're plugged into a gaming system--but I'd rather just spend a little bit more and go with wireless headphones for that.

So, they're not bad but definitely not my favorite. Not sure they're worth the price compared to alternatives for the same or slightly higher price.
