"The overall sound is very lively with loads of volume and regardless of the task we threw at the headset it performed well, including of course Diablo 3 where the soundtrack was recreated with plenty of detail, as were the in-game sound effects. "
"Our fellow players also noted that voice communications were exceptionally clear with no background noise evident. Finally, as always, we love the fact our microphone can be hidden inside the left ear cup when not in use, while offering maximum flexibility when extended."
"While there are headphones that do one thing such as music or movies better, it it hard to find a do it all headset like the Steelseries Diablo III headset. "
"It performs well at everything it does and looks very good while doing so. For fans of the Diablo series this headset is a must-buy to go with the much anticipated Diablo III game."
"The headset, is made of quality parts, is comfortable to wear and has great quality sound that just can’t be beat. The LED trigger pulse illumination, along with the graphic designs, makes this headset look absolutely awesome as well."
"In all, low and mid-frequency sounds are punchy, and highs are clear enough in game to keep all but the most picky of audiophile happy. I tested the D3 with World of Warcraft, Call of Duty 4 and Team Fortress 2. In every instance, I was well pleased with what I heard, and the audio lived up to what I’d expect from a headset in this price range."
"Add the comfort and sound quality to the features like that retractable microphone and OS X compatibility and the SteelSeries Diablo 3 Headset is a winner."
"Overall the SteelSeries Diablo III Headset is a very worthy gaming headset. SteelSeries continues to impress me with their products. The form and function of this headset are top-notch."
"Form the awesome Diablo theme of the headset to the full rich audio it pumps out, this is a perfect headset for any PC gamer."
"The headset is very light weight, yet does not sacrifice durability. When you look at the headset it is very well put together, and has steel screws keeping it together throughout."
"The sound quality input is probably some of the best I have used as well. When using the microphone I was actually complimented in vent to how well I sounded. You can hear it in my video as well. It is by no means a professional microphone for recording, but in terms of game-play it gets the point across clearly, and also has a superior sound cancellation of background noise."
"It does all of these things, and does them well, but the most attractive feature of the headset for me is how damn comfortable it is. It's surprisingly light for such an imposing product, and the extra-large ear cups, designed to minimize outside noise, actually cover my giant-sized ears. They're perfect for long-term wear. I hardly noticed them. I might still be wearing them now, and I would never know."
"I can guarantee you will not be disappointed. Any PC Gamer looking for a good set of gaming headphones could do much much worse, but not a whole lot better."
"I've come to really love this headset. All I can say is that if you want a great, long term, quality headset, this is where it's at. It'll rock and roll with you till we get Diablo 4, okay, maybe not that long lol!"
"The very first thing I noticed when I put the Diablo III headset on my head was that I could barely tell I had put it on. This is one featherweight headset!! The problems I had with my glasses were a thing of the past. The ear cups seem to be designed with glasses-wearing individuals in mind! The sound quality is quite astounding as well. The highs were nice and crisp, with a big boomy bottom that didn’t distract from the sounds in the game. "
"The headset size is impressive - it'll fit perfectly even the biggest heads with protruding ears. What’s more, they are well constructed, its material quality must also be praised, you won't notice any squeaks, cracks, or creaks (…) The sound of 50 mm drivers is surprisingly strong - deep bass and good highs will provide the thrill."
"As advertised I felt that the headset has indeed been fine tuned to deliver an extraordinary auditory experience that will immerse the player in the the Diablo 3 sanctuary environments. "
