The SteelSeries 7H is sure to appeal to those who frequent LAN events due to their portability for a headset of this size and quality. For LAN events we would recommend the fabric ear pads as they are more comfortable to use for long periods of time.
Like the Siberia V2 , the 7H features a retractable microphone .This features background noise cancellation which works well and the sound quality is quite reasonable for use with Ventrilo or Teamspeak. This microphone is ideal for people who want to use the headset for things other than gaming as it can be hidden away when its not needed. This improves the versatility of the headset.
During our movie and audio playback tests the 7H performed well, despite being slightly limited in volume. The only omission is surround sound which would make both movie and gaming performance much better.
The 7H is available for around £75 inc vat. This is a reasonably high price considering the lack of surround sound so we feel the USB version, costing around £92 is a better option if you can afford the £17 premium.
KitGuru says: A fantastic product for LAN gamers and a good option for those looking for a high-quality gaming headset.
