Specific for Gaming

The SteelSeries 5Hv2 USB is the first headset ever, to focus on enhancing certain gaming related sounds for optimal information to the wearer. Pitch sounds like footsteps and reloading are carefully enhanced to give you the information you need to win.

USB Soundcard

The USB 2.0 sound card that is featured with the 5Hv2 USB has a 12-channel equalizer and 7.1 Virtual Surround sound. This device really makes a difference in terms of the USB sound card, giving you the sound you are used to, independent of any other sound card or other computers or devices.

Easy to Carry

The SteelSeries 5Hv2 USB is especially popular and loved at LAN-events and internet cafés around the world. With the ability to dismantle the headset into 3 pieces for easy carrying and transportation makes it the first choice headset for many gamers.

Serious Comfort

The 5Hv2 USB has XL cloth padded ear cups for maximum comfort when gaming for a long period of time. Aside from being comfortable, the ear cups also serve as noise reducers so that you’re able to focus on your game.

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.

Volume Control

The braided cord gives the 5Hv2 USB increased durability and also features an integrated manual volume control. This is especially handy when you don’t have access to regulating volume with software settings.
