SteelSeries Announces 5HV2 Medal of Honor Headset for PC and Xbox 360 Gamers

SteelSeries, the leading manufacturer of gaming peripherals today announced the availability of licensed headsets for Electronic Arts’ first person shooter game, Medal of Honor. The SteelSeries 5Hv2 Headset Medal of Honor Edition for PC and the SteelSeries Spectrum 5xb Medal of Honor Edition for Xbox 360 headsets are the latest addition to the family of SteelSeries branded peripherals co-developed with Electronic Arts for Medal of Honor gamers. The headsets deliver premium quality sound and comfort along with SteelSeries’ signature features including a retractable microphone system and the ability to dismantle into 3 pieces for safe travel.

“It was a pleasure to work with the EA team to optimize and create an amazing design for these new PC and Xbox 360 headsets,” said Bruce Hawver, SteelSeries CEO. “Medal of Honor players will enjoy comfort and incredible sound reproduction, improving their precision and performance in game.”
Both headsets feature the SteelSeries retractable microphone system that can be pulled out during game play and then easily stored in the left ear cup. The headsets also provide the ability to breakdown into three pieces for easy storage or travel. The SteelSeries 5Hv2 Medal of Honor Edition for PC has an optimized soundscape for gaming in a hear-through, cloth ear-cup design.

The SteelSeries Spectrum 5xb Medal of Honor Edition presents Xbox 360 players with an advanced soundscape that enables the player to pinpoint directional sounds of footsteps and weapon fire without being drowned out by the deep bass from explosions. To enhance the audio experience, the included AudioMixer provides easy access to independent audio and voice controls. The SteelSeries LiveMix feature, found within fingers reach on the AudioMixer, is the quick-button option that balances Xbox LIVE chat with in-game audio, so that voice communication is mixed perfectly with the sounds of gunfire and explosions, without having to increase the volume of the headset and risk hearing damage.

The SteelSeries Spectrum 5xb Medal of Honor Edition as well as the SteelSeries 5Hv2 Medal of Honor Edition will be available soon, in late Q2.

Surprising to see them brand such an old headset, too. You'd think they would put the money they're getting from EA for the partnership towards the 5HV3.

Other thoughts

@ Frequency response: 16 - 28.000 Hz is a little better than most but pretty crappy for what i like as i like more 5 - 28.000 Hz at least. And before some one says you cannot here the 5 that is true but you frigging feel it.

Yeah, I often do not buy game branded accessories, even if they are for a game I like. Save for mouse pads, even though I do not actually use them, I collect them. I much prefer my aluminum gaming pad. heh

Anyway, I like Steel Series products, but they simply charge too much in my opinion. There are other headsets out there of similar quality that often cost less. Even though I like Medal of Honor, I still don't like singular branding on my accessories, since I do not limit myself to any one game, ever.

Though the 5HV2 model in general is a fantastic product.

Last MOH was an absolute travesty of a game, steelseries need to get on the ball and promote their headsets with actual good games, BF3 would be a start, yeah it will be good.;)
