The History of SteelSeries Headsets

Headphones, meet mic, meet games. Learn about how we created the first headset specifically for gaming.



At SteelSeries, we solve problems. Not climate change level problems (sorry future generations). Video game problems.

Like when gamers communicated by taping microphones to their faces. So we had an idea: attach mic to headset. The gaming headset was born.

Sounds good right? Well yeah, but not as good as it could. So we brought high fidelity audio to gaming.

We didn’t do it for the awards, we did it so you could get immersed in your games, hear bad guys better, and sh*t yourself when you get shot at.

Innovation is in our blood. Always has been, always will be. Por la gloria.
