To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Looks good. And you can customize the lights if you're into that sort of thing. However, after 2 days of use, my right earphone ear was louder than my left earphone. Apparently this is an on going issue since early releases that no one cared about fixing. I selected the Arctis 5 game as my "main device" and the Arctis 5 chat as "communication device" even though it sounded better using the arctis 5 chat as the main channel. But sound is so flat and bland and made the left earphone louder than the right earphone. Even though you get a knob, might as well not have it as it makes no difference. Pretty disappointed. I've tried the multiple fixes suggested in forums and reddit but nothing works.
Couldn't get microphone working on first one, second one was purchased from Amazon Warehouse, a return that has been supposedly checked. This one also didn't work. Sound control box light was on when plugged into machine, but went out when headphones were plugged in. RGB lights on headphones didn't work at all. Wouldn't connect to computer, device discovery light kept circling
When I first bought this headset back in December 2019 I had no problems, and they were great quality. Now I just got a new pair recently and they are horrible the sound and everything else is great, but I often get a buzzing noise in the background of my game, and recently it’s started making a new noise wich kinda sounds like bones cracking together from a cartoon or something? Eventually it will go away but, it takes about 10-20 mins to go away. Now obviously I’m no expert on headset manufacturing or anything, but I know that’s not supposed to happen so steel series, if your seeing this, get is sorted please.
Second time I will be returning these headphones, and I won't be buying them again. Bought them branded as "very new" but the driver that controls the audio equalizing and RGB lighting never seems to work! Always stuck at "Reconnect headset". The default audio was underwhelming, without the driver these headphones are not worth the time or money. Shouldnt have re-ordered...
