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.;)
