SteelSeries Arctis 7 Headset Review

Rating: 7.0.

A few weeks ago we reviewed SteelSeries’ flagship mouse, the Rival 700, but today our attention turns to gaming headsets, and the Arctis 7. A wireless headset, the Arctis 7 has a metric ton of features including virtual 7.1 surround-sound, ChatMix support and on-ear volume controls to name just 3. It will set you back a fair bit, though, as it is currently priced at £129.95.

While £130 may sound like a lot of money for a gaming headset, the SteelSeries Arctis 7 is widely considered to be one of the best gaming headsets out there. We’ll take a look at the build quality, features and performance before giving our final verdict.

    I have the Arctis 5, and my ears do make contact with the drivers, but I wouldn’t say it’s one way or the other as far as comfort goes. I mean, I would prefer that they didn’t, but it doesn’t cause me any noticeable discomfort. Definitely none of the pinching or overheating that you describe.

    Overall good review, and it definitely opened me to the concept of jumping up a model if it meant I could get rid of the wire, which is the only thing I can say I dislike about the 5.
