SteelSeries 7H Pro Gaming Headset Video Review

Introduction

Today, we have the SteelSeries 7H Headset to review. It boasts a pull out microphone, is travel friendly (by being able to dismantle into 4 pieces), features rich clean sound and has interchangeable ear cushions. Let’s take a closer look at the 7H.

Features / Specifications

Superior sound

The rich and detailed sound that the 7H delivers is powered by 50 mm drivers for a superior soundscape. It’s crucial in gaming that sounds are both clear and recognizable. The sounds of footsteps in an FPS game or a notice in a MMORPG game can be the difference between winning and losing. The soundscape for the 7H was precarious to acheive. In order to be both an awesome headset for gaming as well as a powerful headphone for music, applications and VoIP, the 7H was tested and perfected by gaming professionals and musicians to acheive great sound for all ears

Retractable microphone

The uni-directional microphone can be retracted and hidden in the left ear cup. This signature SteelSeries headset feature allows users to operate the headset in any type of environment, whether in your own home or out in public, with out feeling ridiculous with a microphone projecting out of their cans.

Interchangeable ear cushions

We also understand that it’s important to have the option, especially if it means communcating with your team during a tournament. The 7H is also equipped with interchangeable cloth ear cushions that can easily be swapped out for a completely different, hear-through audio experience. Regardless of what type of sound you prefer, both ear cushions surround the outside of your ear, making them comfortable to use.

Noise control

It’s no secret that concentration is essential for a great performance. Background noises can be disturbing when you’re trying to aim at an opponent or complete a mission. The SteelSeries 7H headset is the solution you’ve been looking for with its optimized design and noise dampening leather ear cups. Drowning out the noise isn’t the only way to maintain control.

Perfect for travel

The feature to disassemble the 7H USB into 4 pieces including at each earcup, headband, and the cord, makes it ideal to travel with.

Volume control

The SteelSeries 7H features a durable, double braided, nylon cord with a built-in volume and microphone control. You can simply adjust sound levels manually instead of having to adjust it in your software settings.
