SteelSeries Guild Wars 2 Gaming Headset Review

User Experience and Conclusion

The Guild Wars 2 headset from SteelSeries is based on their popular Flux headset and despite being more compact model than some of their other ranges, such as the Siberia, it packs a big punch in a small package. The design of the headset is very good with the white and red finish fitting in well with the Guild Wars 2 theme. Additionally the headset is finished to a very high standard, and the build quality is excellent.

Using the headset to play games we found that the quality of the audio was excellent. The soundscape created by the headset is very good and it is very easy to clearly identify audio, even when the action is fast and frantic on screen. The headset also does an excellent job of filtering out any background noise with the SNDBlock ear cushions both very comfortable also… even up to 8-10 hour gaming sessions.

We also tested the headset with a combination of different audio and video sources, from streaming media to high definition content and found that the headset performed well and gave us excellent sound playback from all these sources. The crispness and clarity of the sound was very evident in each area.

The in-line microphone is perhaps the only weak point of this headset. For serious voice communications an in-line mic, even as good as the one on this headset, isn’t as effective as a directional boom mic. We found that the microphone had to be secured to our shirt to get the best out of it but having said this, the performance of the mic was as good as we have seen from an in-line model.

The Guild Wars 2 headset from SteelSeries delivers a compact gaming headset with excellent portability. It has some nice features, such as the SNDBlock ear cushions, and delivers high quality sound reproduction with a good level of build quality.
