Kitguru: So the SteelSeries Spectrum 5XB headset performs well and is a very good quality product on the whole. The only thing that lets it down is the slightly cheap looking finish which we wouldn’t usually associate with SteelSeries. But the flexibility of being able to dismantle the headset when travelling is welcomed and comfort is as good as the rest of their range.
As with all SteelSeries’ products though, the 5XB doesn’t exactly come cheap. At a shade over £60 at Lambda-tek, it is certainly in a different price bracket to other alternatives but we feel that it provides quite reasonable value for money at this price, especially considering the AudioMixer unit alone costs around £20.
