ABOUT US: SteelSeries is a global leader in enhancing gamers’ experience through devices and software they need and want. We were founded to help e-sports pros win major tournaments.

We understand and share the passion for gaming better than anyone else because we too are dedicated gamers on a mission to cut through the flash and hype. We bring cutting edge products to life that meet real needs. We believe in creativity and imagination, in being true to gamers and ourselves and of displaying the same killer instinct in our work as we do when we game.
