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.
