The Headset, cont.


The 5H v2 has a very unorthodox, square shape. There are only a few size adjustments that can be made. The earcups rotate vertically a great deal, allowing for a variety of shapes of head. The cups also roll horizontally a small bit, as you can see in the second picture. Of course, the earcups can also be lowered for larger heads. My head is about average for a grown male, though, and I found the smallest setting to be the most comfortable.


One of the notable features of the 5H v2 is its retractable microphone. When hidden, the microphone is entirely out of the way and unnoticeable. Fully extended, however, the bending microphone will reach right out in front of the mouth. The mechanism is very well designed, and the microphone extends and retracts very smoothly, without kinks or clogs.


The earcups come with thick cloth padding, which surrounds even my excessively large ears. The top of the headset is decorated with the SteelSeries logo, while the padding under it is covered in plastic leather. The padding on the top is also quite thick, making long hours of gaming quite comfortable. Continue on as we take a closer look at the soundcard.
