SteelSeries Arctis 7X

(1/1)

It's high-end, but a step or two down from the company’s flagship models (the Bluetooth-enabled Arctis 9 and the dual-battery Arctis Pro Wireless, both a few years old). It feels good, sounds good, and can wirelessly connect to a wide variety of devices besides PCs, including the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and 5, and Android phones with USB-C ports. It faces stiff competition from above and below, though, with the Razer Barracuda X, an Editors' Choice pick, providing strong mic performance and the same wireless connectivity options for much less money, and the slightly pricier JBL Quantum 800 adding RGB lighting, Bluetooth, and active noise cancellation to the mix. Still, the SteelSeries Arctic 7+ is worth a purchase, especially if you're using it on PC

Noise Cancellation

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/1)

Love this headset! I have a newborn at home and these are perfect for work calls since I am working from home. it is noise cancelling enough and I love that the microphone mutes automatically when you lift it up so if i need to yell something out at home, no one on the call can hear. Would highly recommend

SteelSeries Arctis 7X

(1/1)

The comfort level will vary person to person depending on your features such as ear/head size. They are slightly adjustable, fit my young teen well, are too large for my ten year old and most uncomfortable on my husband who is a very large guy. Your ears will get hot, which isn't uncommon with headsets, and I don't have experience with anything higher priced to know if this can be much better when you are going for noise cancellation. The mic is fine for a young gamer but not impressive

Fit

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/2)

Comfortable headset for larger head, falls off of smaller heads. The ear cuffs rotate so you can lay the headset flat on the table. The ear cuffs are comfortable and not hot. Decent quality audio and mic

SteelSeries Arctis 7X

(1/2)

I found that the factory ear cushions weren't providing a proper seal which was another reason I decided to swap them out with a pair of Wicked Cushions. The hybrid velour cooling gel cushions made a huge difference with the seal, as well as improving the bass and overall sound response from the headset. On top of that, I also purchased Dolby Atmos for Headphones on my Xbox Series X through the Dolby app. Enabling Dolby Atmos in my Series X sound output and using the "Performance" EQ preset on the Steelseries Engine app along with the "Balanced" setting in the Dolby app substantially improved the sound quality

SteelSeries Arctis 7X

(1/1)

You'll barely feel it on your head, no matter how long you wear it for. The stock ear cushions are ok, but I ended up swapping them out with some cooling gel Wicked Cushions for comfort and another reason I'll get into in a minute. Out of the box, the default sound is rather flat and disappointing. If you download the Steelseries Engine app onto your computer, you'll be able to tweak the sound using a customizable EQ or choose from multiple different presets

Sound Quality

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/2)

I am returning these and going for the Sennheiser set and hopefully the sound quality, setup and design will be better with those, even though the reviews are kind of terrible too. Also, they took forever to get here. I ordered them on the 9th and they got here on the 14th. Not as quick as advertised when buying

SteelSeries’ Arctis 7+ ($169.99) is a quality wireless gaming headset.

Price Point

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/1)

These are not worth the price at all. I typically buy headphones that I can switch between gaming and recording audio on, and I can already tell that trying to record music with these is going to be useless. I am returning these and going for the Sennheiser set and hopefully the sound quality, setup and design will be better with those, even though the reviews are kind of terrible too. Also, they took forever to get here

SteelSeries Arctis 7X

(1/1)

Battery life was definitely above average and you'll easily get a few days (or one REALLYYYY long gaming session) out of the battery until having to recharge. Although I did experience a few minor wireless disconnections early on in ownership, the wireless performance was stable and it never gave me any problems on updated firmware. I ended up letting go of my Arctis 7X headset after a year of ownership, swapping them out for the Audeze Penrose X in favor of having a headset with Bluetooth integration and better sound quality. Lately I've seen more Arctis 7X price gouging than when they were first released, so I mainly wanted to write this review as a sort-of warning for potential buyers trying to decide whether or not they should pay $250 for a $150 headset that has the quality of a $130 headset

Battery Life

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/1)

This is the third Corsair product I've encountered issues with, either within a very short amount of time using or out of the box. The wireless function of the headset is nice and convenient, the headset is comfortable, and the audio quality is good AFTER installing iCUE and setting your preferences. The battery life is abysmal. My product had issues out of the box, where it will not charge beyond 78% regardless of how long it is charging, and the battery drains at what seems like a very quick pace (two hours and half that 78% charge is gone)

The ability to use the headset with both my xbox and phone was nice. Connecting the headset to my xbox was easy! The battery life is super! It's also a fairly quick charge.

Durability

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/1)

I can unplug them in the morning and be absolutely certain they will get me through a full work day. If I forget to charge them at night, they will still be fine for at least a few hours the next morning. Their connectivity has been rock solid - never disconnected unless I disconnect them by walking too far away, and then reconnecting instantly. I also love the flip-up micr acting as a mute switch not visible to others on a Zoom call

SteelSeries Arctis 7X

(1/2)

When I asked, everyone in my part chats told me I sounded fine during my testing. Build quality on the Arctis 7X also really surprised me with how good it was. During my research, I read through plenty of complaints about issues with the Arctis 9X earcups having the tendency to loosen and become detached from the swivel sockets attached to the headband. The Arctis 7X felt rock-solid and I never ended up worrying about that ever happening
