SteelSeries Arctis 7

 

SteelSeries Arctis 7 review: Can SteelSeries' wireless headset compete with the best?

Wide operational range ; Long battery life ; Outstanding build quality ; Clean and punchy audio

May be a little small for large heads ; Wired-only Xbox & Switch support ; Volume dials are a little fiddly

A near-flawless headset that delivers on every level.

SteelSeries Arctis 7 wireless gaming headset review

 

Sleek, lightweight design ; Flexible, collapsible, crystal-clear mic ; Excellent sound quality ; DTS Headphone:X virtual surround ; Works with any gaming system

Software and virtual 7.1 only available on PC

This Arctic 7 is by far the best choice for wireless PC headsets, and one of the best overall gaming headsets, period. While using it on a console narrows its functionality, it still outperforms most console headsets, while its comfort, style, and...

SteelSeries Arctis 7 review: This wireless headset provides incredible comfort

 

SteelSeries improves on the floating headband and also makes a play for the "affordable wireless" market with its latest Arctis 7 line.

Comfortable, sleek, and stylish ; Very inexpensive for wireless audio ; Built-in chatmix controls

Headset might not fit the largest of large heads ; Mute button is a bit too small and inconspicuous ; Audio quality is solidly middle-of-the-road

Steelseries Arctis 7 Wireless Gaming Headset

 

The Steelseries Arctis 7 wireless gaming headset combines solid audio quality, flexible connection options, and a comfortable fit at a reasonable price.

Balanced sound. Functions both wireless and wired. Customizable with different headbands and earpads.

Bass isn't particularly powerful.

The Steelseries Arctis 7 is an excellent wireless gaming headset for an impressive price. At $150, it comes in under the Logitech G933 Artemis, the Astro Gaming A50, and even the Skullcandy PLYR 1, all while offering very good audio performance across...

Steelseries Arctis 7 gaming headset review

 

Beautifully made and neutral-sounding, but not for everyone

Very comfortable to wear ; Good battery life ; Mic sounds good

No surround sound on consoles ; No wireless on Xbox One ; Slightly weak bass

Although Steelseries advertises that the Arctis 7 works across PS4, Xbox One and PC, in truth there are large differences in functionality between the three machines with some not supporting surround sound or wireless operation. Regardless, this is a...

SteelSeries Arctis 7 review: Gaming headphones with great sound, great features

 

Keep reading this SteelSeries Arctis 7 review to see why this gaming headset easily earns a Techaeris Top Pick for 2017.

Great design, with really good sound and loads of features. The ski-goggle headband and Airweave earcups are incredibly comfortable even for long gaming sessions. The overall design is one that can easily be worn outside of game time too.

The volume dials took a bit of getting used to so I wouldn't hit them every time I put on or took off the headphones.

If you’re looking for a pair of gaming headphones that are great not only for gaming but will fit nicely outside of your game time, give the SteelSeries Arctis 7 a look. They’ve been out of stock pretty frequently, but that just reaffirms what I’ve...

SteelSeries Arctis 7 Headset Review

 

A few weeks ago we reviewed SteelSeries' flagship mouse, the Rival 700, but today our attention turn SteelSeries' flagship headset – it's wireless, has virtual 7.1 and costs £129.95. Worth it?

My ears pressed against the drivers when in use which was very uncomfortable.

I would love to whole-heartedly recommend the Arctis 7 – and though it is still likely to do the job for many people out there, due to my issues with its comfort, and despite all the things I like about it, I just couldn’t use it for any prolonged...

SteelSeries Arctis 7 Review

 

SteelSeries has released its new Arctis range of headsets; we look at the wireless Arctis 7.

This is an expensive headset, but there's certainly a lot to like. The quality of the materials is immediately apparent, as the plastic is rigid and doesn't feel brittle, and the aluminium has a really nice finish too. The Arctis 7 is also one of the...

SteelSeries Arctis 7 Review

 

The Arctis 7 is SteelSeries' latest wireless gaming headset, featuring DTS Headphone X, lag-free audio up to 12m, and the clear-cast microphone, will this tempt you to lose the cables?

SteelSeries Arctis 7 Wireless Gaming Headset Review - FunkyKit

 

Today we will be covering the Arctis 7 Wireless Headset from SteelSeries. Big shout out to SteelSeries for providing us with all the great headsets in the past. The one on hand today is from the new Arctis line. We covered the Arctis 5 a while back and...

Very Lightweight ; Suspension Headband ; Many accessories available to customize your headset ; SteelSeries Engine ; Price ; Compatible with everything

Not-a-one

Well there we have it the Arctis 7 brought to us by SteelSeries. So I told you I would reveal my opinion and here it goes. The slight loss in quality is very minimal due to these being wireless. The headset still sounds great when compared to the wired...
