The 3 new H-Series headsets all feature custom-engineered soundscapes and the newest generation of SteelSeries audio drivers designed specifically to enhance audio performance and sound details. As with all the SteelSeries professional headsets, the H-Series are designed with solid construction for best-in-class durability. The line-up includes:
- The SteelSeries 9H with Dolby® Technology ($159.99 MSRP) features up to 7.1 surround sound and tournament-grade audio performance with new sound isolating double enclosure ear cup technology.
- The SteelSeries 5Hv3 Headset ($79.99 MSRP) upgrades the sought-after features found in its predecessor, the 5Hv2, including the 3-piece breakdown, new all-leather ear cushions, and new custom-engineered audio drivers.
- The SteelSeries 3Hv2 Headset ($39.99 MSRP) is built for gamers who are looking to experience SteelSeries audio for the first time or without having to make a large investment, the 3Hv2 encompasses the four components that set SteelSeries audio above the rest: performance, convenience, durability and comfort.
The SteelSeries H-Series will be available starting with the 5Hv3 and 3Hv2 headsets this summer and the 9H with Dolby® Technology coming this Fall in Q3.
“The H-Series Headset line was introduced to the competitive gaming world in early 2005 with first-to-market features like the retractable microphone system and a custom engineered soundscape that was so good that the world tagged them as the cheating headsets, ” said Bruce Hawver, SteelSeries CEO. “Twelve years ago we believed that eSports would see incredible growth and we designed entire product lines for this emerging market. Today, we introduce this next generation of competitive players to our new H-Series and believe that the audio experience, combined with the comfort and features, will set a new standard for today’s competitive gaming headsets.”
