The SteelSeries Spectrum 5xb is a pair of gaming headphones, released in late 2010. These over-the-ear headphones have XL-sized, hear-through cloth ear cushions that are designed for comfort. The Spectrum 5xb has been built for durability, with a headband that can be twisted a full 180 degrees. The cord is also built for longevity, with its double-braided nylon design. This headset comes with a retractable microphone as well as the SteelSeries AudioMixer, a device that plugs into the bottom of an Xbox 360 controller. The mixer takes audio from both the game and voice chat, and automatically balances levels to the user’s preferences. Individual volume dials are built-in for manual adjustments. The Spectrum 5xb breaks down into 3 separate components for storage or travel purposes.
