New and improved


On the slab today we have some new and improved cans from SteelSeries with some interesting updates to a functional and already proven design.




Most notably, the updates include a microphone boom built into the headset and a USB soundcard module.




Checking out the back of the pack, we can see that the frequency range is a wide band from 10 to 28,000Hz, which is more than adequate for gaming, movies and music on your computer.


32Ohms of impedance means it's an ideal choice for anything from portable low-power MP3 players to home stereo hi-fi systems.


Headphone sensitivity is measured in Sound Pressure Level (SPL) and I could spend pages explaining it, but all you need to know is that 112dB is adequate for this level of headphones. Unless you are a true audiophile, there is little chance you will notice the difference in these cans.




Out of the packaging there are the headphones in their glossy blackness and leather effect ear cups; a microphone mute switch and volume knob are inline on the cable, and there is an extension unit to give you the reach you need.


A USB audio device gives you virtual 7.1 surround sound which can provide better sound quality than some on-board devices.
