A CLOSER LOOK
Impression and Comfort
The SteelSeries is probably one of the most comfortable headset that I have used. The cushioned ear cups and head band make this headset really comfortable even after hours of use. Since I wear glasses, often I will feel some discomforts for those headphones that press tightly against the head but the soft cushion and the fact that the ear cups are not directly pressed against my ear really take away such discomfort. Furthermore, the ear cups completely cover the ears so they block the interference from environmental noises.
For the extremely comfort and good sound reproduction, the SteelSound 4H will earn a score of 8.5 out of 10 and receive Bjorn3D’s Seal of Approval.
