“SteelSound 3H is a compact and lightweight headset for gamers who frequently attend LAN events, and expect high quality sound. With it's foldable design the size of the SteelSound 3H makes for easy transportation, even in the most crammed situations. The small size also means that the headset is very light weight, which makes all the difference when it comes to wearing this comfortable headset. With pads that lightly press on top of the ears and a light headpiece that keeps the headset in place at all times, SteelSound 3H is hardly noticeable when the sound start playing.
A strong bass and crystal clear sound will help you determine where you can expect the next encounter with your enemy. At a very affordable price, everyone will now be able to buy a high quality gaming headset build for and by professional gamers.
The SteelSound 3H comes equipped with a retractable, uni-directional microphone that can be completely retracted into the headset, meaning the microphone will only have to be visible when in use. Featuring a 50 - 18.000 Hz pickup pattern your voice will be communicated to the recipients with perfect clarity, making it a excellent choice for both games and IP-telephony programs like Skype.”
A very impressive set of numbers for this level of product.
PRODUCT COMPOSITION & WALKTHROUGH
As you can see, the packaging is neat and really showcases the folding design of the 3H. All that is contained in the package is the 3H and a few bits of paper. What, you expected a cookie?
As you can see, the headset folds up and should fit into most gaming bags without any issues. I have included my hand in the shot to give you an idea of the size of the 3H. The unit is constructed of fairly sturdy combination of plastic and metal. Even with the metal components it's still a lightweight product that shouldn't leave you feeling like you've had an elephant sitting on your head when you've used them for a while.
