SteelSeries Guild Wars 2 Gaming Headset – A Closer Look

Guild Wars 2 Headset Guild Wars 2 Headset cups
The Guild Wars 2 headset from SteelSeries is based on their popular Flux headset. It features a simple design with compact ear pads and a plastic headband. It also features a lie flat design where the ear pads can be twisted so that the headset can lie flat on a desktop.

In addition to the headset being able to be laid out flat it can also be collapsed for easy transport. To do this the arms of the ear pads can be folded up to the headband which tucks them away and makes the headset extremely compact.

The headset features two compact ear pads, which are finished in red to match the Guild Wars 2 theme. The ear cushions feature the unique SNDBlock design from SteelSeries which combine both leather and fabric to provide both sound isolation and comfort. The headset has a 3.5mm audio jack on both ear cups. This allows us to connect the headset on either ear, whichever is more suitable for the cable placement to our PC. In addition it allows us to daisy chain the headset with another headset, allowing a friend to listen in on the action.

The Guild Wars 2 logo is featured prominently on each of the ear pads. The headset uses 40mm drivers with a frequency response of 18Hz-28,000Hz with an impedance of 29 Ohms and a sensitivity of 118dB at 1kHz.

Guild Wars 2 Headset extendable

The headset is extendable from the headband allowing us to get the best fit for maximum comfort. The ear pads can also tilt on the vertical as well as twisting on the horizontal, which gives us lots of scope to find the best position to wear it for extended periods of time.

The headband is finished in white and is soft moulded plastic. Although it doesn’t have any padding we found that the due to the soft finish off the plastic and that the headset is very light it was very comfortable to wear.

Finally we have the detachable cable, which features an in-line microphone. The cable is 2m long and has two 3.5mm jacks for both the microphone and the headset. As we said previously the cable can be plugged into either the left or right ear pad and if we wanted we can just disconnect this cable and use a different cable to plug into a mobile device if we wanted to use the headset on the move.

The in-line microphone has a mute control and is omni-directional. It has a frequency response of 50Hz to 16,000Hz and has a sensitivity rating of -38dB.
