Blizzard Entertainment has launched Diablo III SteelSeries headset as a precursor to the eagerly awaited Diablo III game that could be still be a few months down the line. This was launched along with the really sinister looking Diablo III gaming mouse.
SteelSeries Diablo III looks cool and performs well too. Diablo fans would particularly love this as it is targeted at them though Diablo III is an offshoot of the Siberia V2 SteelSeries USB headset. Designed with gamers in mind, Diablo III is equipped with 50mm drivers on both ears.
Potential users can expect a complete sound – one with clear and sharp high end and deep and rich low end, which is quite unlike some of the other headsets around. A still richer sound can be obtained by tweaking the five band equalizer after downloading the software. With only eight presets, the software is simple enough even for the non-technical minded who just want to quickly change the sound.
In terms of external design Diablo III is unique among the SteelSeries headsets. It is black in color with red accents. Giving it more aesthetic bite are the LEDs on each of the headphones. Whether you’re a gamer or not, the looks would more than entertain you, like a Diablo game itself! It’s also extremely light making it really comfortable on the ears and easy to carry around. The retractable microphone is a piece of real ingenuity, as are the inline volume control and microphone. These compact features make it one of the most portable laptops around. You only need to slide in the microphone when you carry it around and not be worried about it being snatched off your headset. The incredibly light weight of SteelSeries Diablo III means you don’t feel it’s on your ears even after hours of use.
Getting the Diablo III headset running isn’t difficult by any means. All you need to do is plug it in to your laptop or desktop (PC or Mac), since these are USB headphones. There is an extra USB extension offered for connecting to a desktop.
SteelSeries Diablo III headset is a truly impressive product thanks to its rich audio, great lightweight design incorporating features such as the retractable microphone, and the Diablo theme pervading the external form. More updates are sure to come with the now simple software likely to get more features to satisfy the hardcore gamers.
SteelSeries Diablo III headset is internationally priced at the range of Rs. 4,800 to Rs. 6,000 depending upon the online stores and regions. SteelSeries products are available to be shipped to India through the online retailers available such as Flipkart.com, Letsbuy.com, Nextworld.in and Infibeam.com
