SteelSeries 7H Gaming Headset Review

Review Score:
206 Flares 206 Flares ×

Over the past few months KitGuru has looked at a number of SteelSeries’ gaming products from the Ferrari-red Siberia V2 headset to the more understated 7G keyboard.  We feel they are some of the best gaming peripherals on the market, combining top-notch quality with awesome performance, so it is no surprise that they have all won KitGuru awards.

Today we’re going to look at the latest addition to SteelSeries’ range, the 7H gaming headset, which is targeted at the most serious of gamers.

With the 7H, SteelSeries has used a completely different design to the popular Siberia V2 headset meaning it provides a different experience which may appeal more to different people.  There are commonalities between the two, though, including the 50mm driver units and pull-out microphone.

Features

  • Optimized soundscape for crystal clear high, low and mid-tones
  • Interchangeable ear-cushions for both hear-through cloth and noise dampening leather
  • 50 mm driver units provide rich and detailed audio reproduction
  • Pull-out, “invisible” microphone
  • Travel friendly and can be dismantled into 4 separate pieces

    Looks like a good set of phones, if rather expensive compared to some competitors

    Hell of a product from Steelseries – they are one of the gamers first choices on the market really even with hefty competition.

    Interesting and good review. I am not sure its worth selling my old Steelseries phones though, they are still great. might see how much I can get for them to get a cheap upgrade. but im not spending another 92 quid on these.

    Good review henry. Seems the wise option is to spend extra for the surround options.

    Are these really worth the extra money when compared to the Arctic cooling headphones you reviewed last week?

    @ Raymond, the difference in the prices is a result of adding an external USB sound card. Otherwise the headphones are identical.

    @ Garry, The 7H is only available in black for the moment

    @ Frank, Comared to the P531 the 7H is better built, and quite a lot lighter and more comfortable. The sound quality is also a bit better but it lacks proper surroundsound, even with the USB option.
