If Steelseries could fix their quality control they would have some really good products. But I have had their RIval 310 mouse for 7 months and already having double clicking issues or miss clicks (This could have been fixed I think with making their left and right click not so loose and floating feeling), and the silicon sides are starting to peel off because they used a really cheap glue for sticking them to the plastic hull of the mouse. Also the glue is not very resistant to any amount of heat, even heat from your hands after longer gaming sessions.

My broken SteelSeries headphones completely agree with you, as do I.
I almost forgot, but my sensei mouse wheel has few things to say also... but it can't because it doesn't work

They cut too many corners, and then try and sell it as a positive feature. They marketted the silicon side grips as being amazing, but they really suck once some hand oils get on them. They are very slippery. Im done with their products.

+1. First time I got SS product was a Kinzu Pro v2 . I loved the shape of the mouse, but the left click was gone so fast....and for so much money....seriously. I really like the Danish design, but they have to fix their QQ and also when will they release an affordable wireless mouse?

Who cares about quality? Isn't advertised big brand name all that matters?:rolleyes:

Advertising is legalized lying.
-H. G. Wells

If advertisers spent the same amount of money on improving their products as they do on advertising then they wouldn't have to advertise them.
-Will Rogers

But why improve products when you can just sell any garbage with enough marketing...

Suspect it was already broken by design in the first place.

All the biggest hype brands Asus, Corsair, Razer, Roccat and SteelSeries belong to those with worst frequency responses!
Even older than game fashion brands Turtle Beach has pretty total turd as Z60...

When getting chance to test it that made 30€ Superlux HD-330 sound like top quality headphone in comparison.
Binaural sound is ultimate headphone test and what should be important for gaming headphones.
So naturally almost all gaming headphones use closed design whose acoustics is extreme challenge/drag for soundstage...
