SteelSound 4H headset

Besides mousepads SteelSeries also has lots of other products for gamers. In this review I'm taking a look at the SteelSound 4H headset which has been optimized for gamers. SteelSeries claims the 4H is ideal for FPS and RTS gamers because of optimizations for specific sounds found in gaming like gunfire, weapon reloads, footsteps and other crucial in-game sounds.

The SteelSeries 4H headset is a cheaper version of the SteelSound 5H v2. The 4H has many of the same features but has a slightly less advanced design and can't be dismantled into three separate pieces.

Here's a look at the features:
  • Lightweight gaming headset with XL-sized earcushions
  • Developed in cooperation with professional gamers
  • Retractable uni-directional microphone system
  • Volume control, featuring 3 microphone settings
  • Full-size earcups for maximum individual comfort
  • Strong and deep resonating in-game sound projection
  • 40mm SteelSound SunDancer(Sd) Units
  • And here's a look at the specifications of the headphone and micro:

    Headphone specifications:
  • Frequency response: 16 - 28.000 Hz
  • Impedance: 40 Ohm
  • SPL@ 1kHz, 1 Vrms: 110 dB
  • Cable length: 1.8 meters (6 feet)
  • Microphone specifications:
  • Frequency response: 75 - 16.000 Hz
  • Pick up pattern: Uni-directional
  • Sensitivity: -38dB
  • Impedance: 2k Ohm
  • The product ships in the following plastic package:

    Here's a first look at the 4H headset.

    The headset is made out of black plastic and has cushioned ear cups and a cushioned headband. As you can see on the photos the earcups can be swivelled left/right and up/down.
