CONCLUSIONS & AFTERTHOUGHTS
Steelpad has made some quality products in the past, and I was excited to see what they could do to enhance the sound in a gamer's world. I was disappointed to say the least, by the lackluster sound quality that these headphones provide. I admit the thought was there, and the headphones are nicely designed, especially the microphone addition but design is not all there is.
The microphone had good quality, great quality actually but that isn't enough when you have to try to ignore the distortion to play even a regular FPS game. You need the clarity to hear where the footsteps and shotgun shells being fired are coming from. Even if the sound quality was there, the price tag is quite high at a MSRP US$139.99 for a pair of these bad boys.
- Sleek Design
- Excellent Microphone Clarity
- Price is large
- Bad sound quality
- Ventilation needs some work
