SteelSeries Arctis 7 Review: Wireless Gaming Headset
Let’s check out what you get inside the box so inside along with the wireless headphone you get the manual and also the wireless transmitter, a micro USB charging cable and then a mobile and console audio cable. But anyways starting with the headband, you get a very sturdy steel frame with a ski goggle elastic strap that helps spread all of the white over your head equally.
Gadget Answer Team have to say this is an interesting new design at this moment. But it does work very well especially when you can adjust the head strap to fit your head size. But I personally for me the way this steel frame is bent it kind of looks a bit weird when it’s on your head. I guess you have to design a head say to fit literally any head size but don’t get me wrong with the hitch up is extremely comfortable and it is kind of a bit different which I like moving on to the ear cups which uses a closed back designed to keep everything you’re listening to yourself.
The ear crops are made out of plastic to keep it nice and light but it does feel extremely high quality the ear cups does also swivel a bit so it is mostly comfortable to sit on your ears and also turns inward so you can rest it on your neck if you’re not using it or you just want to move around a bit now it is a bit tiny around your neck. I just usually lift it on my head while moving around or listening to my music or just turn the volume down.
While I wants to do anything else and that work perfectly for me then on the back of the ear cups you get a bunch of controls and connection ports firstly the left side you get a micro USB charging ports to charge the wireless hates it next you get a 3.5 millimeter jacket that you can use to share what you are listening to to somebody else now I’m not too sure how many times you would actually use this but I have to say I really like it.
You never know when you might actually want to use this wireless gaming headset and more is always better. So you do have that option next to the audio jack. You get the mobile search console audio input where we can connect the included cable to connect the Artic 7 to any device with a 3.5 millimeter audio jack.
And you are not only limited to the wireless you can also use it on the go after that you get the volume control wheel that is extremely handy and perfectly positioned to easily adjust. The amount of balm you want to hear then also the button on the left ear cup is to mute your microphone.
Once you press it, you will hear a beep and the button will be pushed out. So you can feel that the mic is muted. Then moving to the right ear cap, you get that power on button that you have to press for 3 seconds to turn it on or off. The power icon also blinks a certain color to let you know the percentage of the battery.
This wireless gaming headset has a green flash is between hundred and fifty percent of battery life. While yellow is between forty nine to twenty percent while red is nineteen to ten percent and a fast thinking redis nine to one percent. Luckily you can still use the hit it while you are charging it with the micro USB cable and while charging the power icon will blink a lot slower. So you know that it is charging. Just don’t forget to unplug the cable before standing up.
You never know what can happen next you also get a volume channel wheel that allows you to adjust what you are hearing between two inputs. So you’re able to set up the chat input to something like discord or team speak and then you have the game channel for you know your gaming audio. Then you are able to scroll the wheel to the channel you would like to hear more of now. This is a super handy feature when you’re playing with friends online and want to have full control on what you hear.
On-headset Chat-Mix dial gives you the control to adjust the volume during chatting and gaming time (PC and Mac only). The headset is smooth and highly evolved, with streamlined appearance and an absolutely foolproof adjustable headband. Rather than having to monkey around with inflexible extendable rods, you can simply adjust two Velcro straps, and the bendable headband will go along with your head’s size and shape.
Comfort: Wireless Gaming Headset
This wireless gaming headset provides incredible comfort with soft and flexible elastic band. As you’d anticipate from ski goggle-style material, reinforced with a solid metal piece connecting the two ears.
