SteelSeries announced two licensed gaming headsets for Electronic Arts' first person shooter game, Medal of Honor:
- SteelSeries 5Hv2 Medal of Honor Edition for PC
- SteelSeries Spectrum 5xb Medal of Honor Edition for Xbox 360
The SteelSeries branded headphones were co-developed with Electronic Arts for Medal of Honor gamers. The headsets deliver premium quality sound and comfort along with SteelSeries' signature features including a retractable microphone system and the ability to dismantle into 3 pieces for safe travel.
Both headsets feature the SteelSeries retractable microphone system that can be pulled out during game play and then easily stored in the left ear cup. The headsets also provide the ability to breakdown into three pieces for easy storage or travel. The SteelSeries 5Hv2 Medal of Honor Edition for PC has an optimized soundscape for gaming in a hear-through, cloth ear-cup design.
The SteelSeries Spectrum 5xb Medal of Honor Edition presents Xbox 360 players with an advanced soundscape that enables the player to pinpoint directional sounds of footsteps and weapon fire without being drowned out by the deep bass from explosions. To enhance the audio experience, the included AudioMixer provides easy access to independent audio and voice controls. The SteelSeries LiveMix feature, found within fingers reach on the AudioMixer, is the quick-button option that balances Xbox LIVE chat with in-game audio, so that voice communication is mixed perfectly with the sounds of gunfire and explosions, without having to increase the volume of the headset and risk hearing damage.
The SteelSeries Spectrum 5xb Medal of Honor Edition as well as the SteelSeries 5Hv2 Medal of Honor Edition will be available soon, in late Q2 2011.
