So I came from turtle beach’s which was great I loved them for my Xbox not for my pc. These are great it has a control where you can pick if you want to hear the game or your chat more. It also has a led ring around each headset so that’s dope. A little on the heavy side if your use to smaller headset but over all it’s a go
When I first got these, I thought they seemed too quiet. After downloading the EQ software and making some adjustments, I found it super easy, and I’m super happy with the product. This is the BEST headset on the market for an affordable price. The only “bad” thing about these is that they don’t have as much bass as my old Razer Nari essentials. If I could give them 6/5 stars, I would.
i have a Steelseries bluetooth controller. and just like the controller, this headsets quality. ease of use are top notch. very comfortable to wear. retractable mic when not using it. an on headset mute button that illuminates a red light just within peripheral so that you dont forget you are muted. but does not distract from gaming. it also has a game/voice chat audio mixer so that you can get just the right amount of video into the headset if you so choose.
I love the design of Steel series and love the retractable mic. I even love the felt adjustment band, but I have a bit of a weight issue on the ears. Not a drastic issue but i think the felt adjustment just isn't holding the most of the weight.
Mic can slide in and out of headset (giggity)
RGB and equalizer are addressable in app.
Works on Xbox and PS4 or anything with 3.5mm aux but only bad thing: RGB no-worky unless used on PC (which you plug headset into via USB)
Knob can easily adjust volume of game or chat. Turn knob to chat to hear people better / turn knob to other side to shut-up everyone else and focus on game.
Is not fireproof - don't roast marshmallows with it.
RGB might or might not increase FPS - Probably not but you should still get every component and peripheral you possibly can get that has RGB!

Quality is really good, been seeing a lot of Steel series and thought I'd give them a try, they're very good for when I'm playing a racing game and want my music or playing stealth but most importantly, it's almost illegal on how well allows me to tell which direction my enemies are coming from. But every headset is with its flaws. Starting off small, they use a special type of cord, I have a box of different ones already, they just added one to it. There's a knob that's optional to control audio between game audio and chat audio, but I personally like it, some may not. The mic is retractable and I have fears of the longevity of that, but it actually feels reliable and sturdy. On the headband there's this almost non adjustable band so if I have my braids up above my head I don't think it'll fit comfortably but with the quality, of the item and sound, worth it. The headphones actually turn so they will always sit flush on your desk. 5/5 but if it was of ten I'd give it a 9/10 solely because they use a special cord and I already have a box dedicated to different ones. This item really was the decider for me to plan to give their other products a try. In the pictures the cord from the knob goes into the conversion cord to 3.5mm jack. Put up to PS button for size reference.
Honestly these are the nicest headphones I've ever owned. The build quality is solid and the audio sounds pretty good. Most games I just use the attached mic over my blue yeti as it's pretty good sounding. Would highly recommend if you're a gamer looking for a solid headset at the 100$ price point. Had it for over a year and the only issue was occasionally unplugging it by accident.
I would have given this higher but, maybe this is just my pair of headphones acting up, but the RGB lights absolutely refuse to sync with my preferences or with the combined Prism Sync settings. Other than that, these headphones have awesome sound & surround quality while feeling very comfortable to wear, all for less than $100. Also, these headphones have awesome material quality and the look absolutely stunning.
