Manufacturer Steelplay has introduced three new peripherals in the audio segment that are supposed to convince with a successful price-performance ratio. The Steelplay HP-44 and HP-45 are two new headsets for the current PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles. They are joined by the USB streaming microphone no-pop kit.
Steelplay HP-44 and HP-45 introduced
With the HP-44 for PS5 and HP-45 for Xbox Series X/S gaming headsets, Steelplay, Pixminds’ hardware brand focused on affordable gaming peripherals, presents two new devices visually inspired by the colors of Sony and Microsoft’s consoles.
There are no technical differences between the two devices, which is why both headsets are fully compatible with PS5 / PS4, Xbox series X/S, Xbox One, PC, notebook and other devices with a 3.5 mm jack connector.
The manufacturer doesn’t provide an insane amount of details about the installed technology, but it does promise a high level of wearing comfort thanks to soft ear pads and a lightweight, adjustable headband. Both headsets are plug-and-play compatible and feature a braided cable, as well as an integrated remote control that can be used to adjust the volume and mute the microphone.

It covers a frequency band from 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz and offers a sensitivity of -38 dB + 2 dB. The manufacturer also promises clear and precise audio reproduction. The package also includes a rotating metal stand with butterfly clamp, as well as a pop filter that can be easily attached in front of the microphone.

When the new Steelplay peripherals will be available in stores is currently unclear. Known, however, are already the prices. For example, the two Steelplay HP-44 and HP-45 gaming headsets have an MSRP of 24.99 euros, while the Steelplay Stream Mic no-pop kit USB microphone will be offered at an MSRP of 34.99 euros.
