eSports is a really big deal these days, with many different companies sponsoring teams as if they were football teams/franchises etc. On such company that does this is the Danish peripheral giant SteelSeries, who have big teams like Na’Vi, are bound to attract a lot of attention from aspiring gamers who look up to these elite gamers like they are gods. Saying that, SteelSeries do have a very large product line other than the team sponsored products which we have seen quite a few of in the past.
Today however, I will be taking a look at their 9H gaming headset which features Dolby Pro Logic IIx, in-line audio controls and a retractable noise cancelling microphone. With the gamer in mind, how well will it perform in not just gaming, but audio and general use also? I intend to find out so let’s get on with the review…
