SteelSeries 5Hv3 Gaming Headset

Famed for its tournament and award-winning, gaming audio performance and portability, the 5Hv2 headset was one of the most talked-about headsets on the tournament circuit. The new 5Hv3 gaming headset features the next generation of SteelSeries audio drivers with a custom-engineered soundscape for clear and detailed sound without distortion.

Crystal Clear Communicaton

A custom-engineered soundscape features a wide dynamic range, which makes it possible for the 5Hv3 to deliver a balanced and linear tournament-grade advantage. Hear all levels of your audio: lows, mids, and highs. The custom-engineered soundscape was built by SteelSeries audio engineers to provide the best possible gaming experience. Advanced components, like high grade mylar film, further perfect the sound for added clarity with no distortion.

In-Line Controls

An integrated volume controller on the double braided cable cord of the 5Hv3 offers a microphone mute switch for instant control without having to navigate through software settings.

Retractable Microphone

The retractable microphone in the left earcup makes this headset perfect for gaming without having the microphone being an annoying device hanging out all the time. Pull it out when you need it, hide it in the earcup when you don’t.

Easy to Carry

The SteelSeries 5Hv3 gaming headset is especially popular and loved at LAN-events and internet cafés around the world. The ability to dismantle the headset into 3 pieces for easy carrying and transportation makes it the first choice headset for many gamers.

Swapple Cable System

The ends of the 5Hv3 are swappable so that you can use your headset with your PC, Mac, phones and tablets. A mobile end with a single 3-pole 3.5mm jack and a PC cable with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a 3.5mm microphone jack have both been included.
