Steel Series™ New 5H Headset Promises Gamers Enemies They’ve Never Heard Before

Newport Beach, CA .... Those distant footsteps you're hearing behind you might have been there in the past. You just couldn't hear them. Until now.

Top-European manufacturer Soft Trading announces their Steel SeriesTM Steel Sound 5H Headset, promising a startling new level of audio clarity for professional gamers and gaming fans alike.

Co-researched and co- designed by pro gamers Emil "HeatoN" Christensen [NIP], Tommy "Potti" Ingemarsson [NIP], and Jonas "WhiMp" Svendsen [SK-gaming], the 5H Headset features a new level of sound clarity coupled with an increased capacity to hear team members critical commentary.

Tommy "Potti" Ingemarsson was pleased with the final product.

"This headset will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. You won't want to ever stop playing your favourite game."

The team spent more than six months developing the 5H.

"When I tried out the headset for the first time, I got really scared," says Emil "HeatoN" Christensen. "I suddenly heard enemies all around me, I couldn't really believe how good the sound was."

The popularity of Electronic Sports - or eSports - is exploding, and along with it the demand for gaming equipment to satisfy the increasingly sophisticated and downright picky gaming community. The 5H addresses this demand head on.

"This headset doesn't just sound good," says Jonas "whiMp" Svendsen. "It actually enhances your performance because the sound is has been seriously optimized for gaming."

The Steel Sound 5H is part of the Steel Series, which includes a wide range of professional gaming products. Like the 5H, every Steel Series product is developed in co-operation with professional gamers to ensure killer results under fire.

Soft Trading's Steel Series, -- along with the Ice Mat and Siberia Series -- are used by more professional gamers than any other manufacturer. Soft Trading manufactures the most quality gear at its price level.

The footsteps are getting more audible. Like that critical bullet being loaded in a gun, the Copenhagen-based company plans to storm North America with the 5H - along with three of their top-sponsored pro gaming teams - when they arrive next week at the E3 Expo at Los Angeles Convention Center.
