COMFORT/ISOLATION

The compact dongle is great, and it seems like it’s most of what you’re paying for. Photo taken by Alex Rowe.

WIRELESS DONGLE AND BATTERY

SteelSeries Engine offers a few tweaks for this headset on a PC, a nice touch! Screenshot taken by Alex Rowe.
These two pieces no longer sit flush due to the headband bending, just one of several fit and finish issues on this headset. Photo taken by Alex Rowe.

DESIGN AND BUILD

This sharp plastic corner easily scratches the pad every time I rotate the cup flat. Not great! Photo taken by Alex Rowe.
I still like the sleek design of this headband pad. Photo taken by Alex Rowe.

MICROPHONE

These seal well even around my glasses and my current amount of hair. Photo taken by Alex Rowe.
