SteelSeries SteelSound 4H 5

SteelSeries SteelSound 4H Review

Closer Examination »


The SteelSeries started off with just the simple SteelPad line of gaming surface products. These were a great success and therefore created a fuzz about SteelSeries as a "Gamers Brand". A while after the initial success, the SteelSeries product line was expanded to include both mouse mats and headsets optimized for gaming.

Last year SteelSound introduced the 5H headset, which was a fairly large headset compared to most on the market at the time. The headset was an instant success due to the quality of the design and the decent audio performance. Ever since the release of the original 5H there has been a a lot of talk about the SteelSound products. Everybody could agree on them being quality gaming headsets but for the non-hardcore gamer they were simply too expensive.

But then late last year SteelSound decided to put a brand new series of headset on the market, which were more compact and cheaper than the 5H flagship line. There are currently two small cousins of the 5H, the 4H which I will be reviewing today and the 3H which is a tiny multi purpose headset.


As with all of the SteelSound headsets the 4H comes in a transparent plastic box, which is made of some thick heavy duty plastic. This allows the user to inspect the headset for any external damages before opening the box.

As with all of the SteelSound gaming headset products this 4H is made in cooperation with some of the top gaming teams around the world.

The headset comes with a small bundle. It consist of a commercial for other SteelSeries products and a trial for their SteelSecurity. Of course there is also a little notice about not wearing the headset while playing loud music and stuff like that.
