Steelseries Arctis 7 review

Avid gamers are always looking to upgrade their devices. There are various kinds of headphones available in the market that a gamer would set their eyes upon but if you are looking for something that provides you with complete comfort then you need to read this Steelseries Arctis 7 review (2019 edition). These headphones are highly versatile and very comfortable for you to invest in because they are everything that gamers need and much more.

When we first reviewed these headphones, we were a little skeptical about whether or not these were the right headphones to invest in considering they are a little expensive in terms of a gaming headphone. The reason being most gamers would hesitate spending such kind of money on a pair of headphones. However, once we started reviewing the headphones we realized that they are the best headphones that you can find in the world of gaming. When you have these headphones on, you manage to enjoy your game a lot better without any disruptions whatsoever.

Budget

 

Although gaming headphones do not cost as much as an audiophile headphone would cost you, it does tend to increase the value of the headphone in the gaming area. Gamers don’t pay much attention to the price. We would recommend checking the price before investing in a device. We won’t deny that these headphones are slightly expensive.

The price of the headphones does not take away from the fact that it manages to live up to the expectations of an avid gamer and will manage to make them a fan in no time. If you are ready to spend a good amount of money on wireless headsets then we would recommend this headphone because they are comfortable and when you are playing games you could spend hours in front of the screen.

Design

 

One of the major reasons why we really love these headphones is because it comes in a stylish, sleek and sophisticated design that makes it look a lot more expensive than you actually pay for them. It comes with an adjustable headband so I would suggest figuring out exactly what your comfort level with the headband is before you decide on using the headphones.
They could be a little difficult to balance at the start but with time you will get used to them. Once the headband fits comfortably around your head, you will realize just how amazing these headphones are in terms of comfort.

You can pick between the black or white headphone. There is not much of a difference with the features and it’s just the color that differs. We chose the black because we use it between multiple people and did not want to dirty it.

Another thing we would like to mention in this 2019 edition review is that these headphones are really durable and you don’t need to worry about keeping them safely. Gamers tend to toss their headphones everywhere when they are not in use or when they lose in a game and these headphones have been built to withstand the wear and tear.

The ear cups of these headphones are comfortable and they do not cause any sort of irritability when you take the headphones off. We don’t suggest wearing the headphones when you step outside because you may find it a little too hot and you may end up sweating a lot.

Sound

 

While the Steelseries is known as a gaming headphone the music that these headphones deliver is not subpar. The sound quality is a perfect fit for avid gamers and since these headphones are compatible with all gaming consoles, you will be able to enjoy supreme quality sound irrespective of what gadget you want to use it with.

While they are wireless, they also come with a 3.5 mm chord for you to use them as wired headphones as well. This comes handy when there is no Bluetooth available for wireless connectivity.

We have to admit that the sound quality with the wire is better than without. It has 7.1 digital surround sound for gaming which helps you experience the game a lot better. From footsteps to gun fire to even the character voices in the games, you are sure to enjoy it a lot better with these headphones.

Gaming means explosion of a number of sounds, some more prominent than the others and this headphone manages to differentiate between these sounds perfectly. While you may not be able to enjoy music a lot on these headphones, the sound of these headphones is perfect for gaming. These headphones also come with a noise isolation feature and this ensures that no one will disturb you while you are playing a game.

Features

 

This is a wireless headphone so all you need to do is plug the USB port into your computer and you will manage to use it conveniently in no time. The pairing is a bit of an issue which is why we would not suggest switching from one device to another.
Since these headphones are designed for gaming, we would recommend pairing it with your gaming console and using it individually instead of sharing the headphone. They are easy to operate once they have been connected and you can control the volumes of the game using the ear cup itself.

We have used various headphones before these and we usually ended up with a stiff neck or a headache because the headphones were too tight. However, with these headphones we had neither of these complaints once we adjusted the headband.

Pros

  • Superior quality gaming headphone
  • Comfortable
  • Wireless

Cons

  • Connection difficulties
  • Not the most budget friendly device you will find
  • Music quality is average

Verdict

There are a number of gaming headphones you will find in the market that are available at lower prices. However, this headphone will deliver some important features that can help enhance your game. When it comes to gaming, even the fraction of a second plays a huge role in determining whether or not you will win that game. If you are looking to up your gaming experience with good quality headphones, there is no doubt that these are a great investment if you have the budget.

We hope this review has helped you make a decision. This is a headphone that will help take your gaming experience to the next level. The reason we would suggest investing in this headphone is because they not only provide you with decent audio quality they also ensure that the game doesn’t lag. We know enthusiastic gamers that have used these headphones for a long time and we can confirm that these headphones will last you a really long time without the performance being affected.
