SteelSeries Arctis 7 Wireless DTS Headphone Gaming Headset for PC and PlayStation 4
Great sound quality for games, music & movies. Designed well. Battery last for a very long time. The mic is good. Noise cancelling is good. Very light weight. They dont get too hot or uncomfortable after long period of use.
Only thing I think could've been done differently is the ear cuffs. I feel like they could've used leather or even faux leather.
Very good choice for anyone willing to spend a moderate amount on a great headset. 5☆
After trying out 3 wireless headsets, the Steelseries Arctis 7 Wireless DTS is the winner! Love the quality of sounds and the most comfortable! Battery life is amazing as I forget to charge the headset and It's still going fine another 6 hour's without a charge.

Very comfortable headset. Easy to use and good sound/mic.
SteelSeries Arctis 7 Wireless DTS Headphone stopped charging after 6 months. While I will spare you the 3 month details, SteelSeries has no ability to speak to the company with support or RMA AT ALL....
I had three tickets in a span of 3 months. Not one was processed under the valid and proven RMA Process. This organization will demand so much proof including totally destroying the product, then tell you you didn't totally destroy it properly thus spending money to ship. No matter the efforts, they will find excuse after excuse to not trust the truth of you and pictures to get a coupon to order your replacement via their website....
Seriously stay away from this Product Line. I have ran into others via Social Media experiencing valid and proven RMA replacement with total failure of the organization to back their written warranty. Best Buy thru countless efforts would not assist. If you want to take a huge gamble, choice is yours but BUYER BEWARE.
First picture is during 4 weeks and three tickets after failure. Second was the request to destroy and I finally backed down a month later to just get it over with (how can you dispute destruction and demand product must still be shipped at consumer expense for validation plus I find it very unlawful to demand a product to be further destroyed beyond the RMA reported issues). From December 10th till now I am yet to get my replacement and multiple people are considering a Class Action Lawsuit against Steel Series....
The company placed the band so it would rub on the Serial Number. The mic died after 8 months. I tried to get it replaced. The company claimed that they can't do anything because the SERIAL NUMBER WAS RUBBED OFF FROM THE DESIGN OF THEIR BAND. FRAUD. The ware and tare was less than a year. Dishonest company. Dishonest policy's. But no worries they offered a 10% discount to buy another one! They are probably laughing pretty hard about saving the company another $150.
I originally had the Arctis 5, but decided to get these because they were wireless, you could control game and chat volumes, and I wanted to experience 7.1 surround sound. I was extremely happy with how comfortable these were as other headsets would hurt the crown of my head after an hour or two of use whereas these never did. The battery life was excellent and the button layout itself was easy to get use to. It wasn’t until I tried to raise game volume and lower chat volume that I realized it wasn’t working. I downloaded the Steelseries program and tried to updated the firmware for the headsets, but it wasn’t necessary. After reading the manual and going to the Steelseries website, it turns out that not only can you not adjust the volume for game and chat on PS4, but you also can’t enable 7.1 surround sound! This headset still got a 4 star because of how clear the sound is, comfortability and design. This item will be returned because it doesn’t provide the features I want, but if you’re not a PS4 user then perhaps it will be a better experience for you!
I work from a busy home with a fair amount of ambient noise. My company is spread out around the globe with many different accents and different levels of wifi connectivity. We use both MS Teams and Zoom to connect digitally on a daily basis. These headphones provide exceptionally good audio both for inbound sound and my outbound voice. I love the added mute button on the headset that assures me I am really on mute even if I have already hit mute on my computer. Plus, I am generally warm person and was at first concerned that the headphones would get sweaty if worn all day - luckily not at all, very comfortable in fact. They hold the charge all day even when I am on calls for hours and their range is about 25 feet which lets me move around the house when I need to. If you are not used to headphones it took me about a week to get used to the noise canceling which is a little strange if you leave them on outside of calls - but again these headphones are awesome! Oh and one other thing I plugged the wireless link into the USB port, clicked on the Power and they instantly worked - no loading of drivers - plug and play.
After a month of research, I narrowed my choices, including this SteelSeries Arctis 7. When I tested all the display/demo units, my heart sank and decided not to buy anything. Why? Because I found the sound in the store demo set up HORRIBLE, UGLY, and all the negative adjectives I can throw at it. Maybe it's just because I'm used to real audio gears. But I went back the next day anyway to pull the trigger on the Arctis 7 as I still needed a headset regardless, and the Arctis 7 has one of the best reviews.
I'm glad I did and was pleasantly surprised when I plugged this to my Razer laptop. The sound was fuller, more alive, and richer than when I listened to it in Best Buy. It is now a hundred times better than what I heard from the store demo set-up. Maybe it is also helped by the fact that I use a BONGIOVI DPS plug-in in my laptop, and it makes things sound so much better than stock, but my point being that this headset has potential to produce good sound.
Anyway, here are the positives:
1. Really nice build and just the perfect size and heft. Not too bulky. My set-up is 99% Razer but made an exception for this one. The Razer headsets are just too big and heavy for me.
2. Retractable microphone. I didn't really need a mic, so I'm happy that I can stow it away on this headset and overall it would look like it has no mic at all.
3. A dongle that let's you plug in both this headset and your desktop speakers 2-way. If the headset is off, the sound flows by default to the desk speakers. When you turn this headset on, sound is automatically re-routed to the headset and desk speakers get cut off. Turn this headset off and sound goes back to speakers. In 2 weeks of use, it has worked flawlessly without a hiccup.
3. I actually liked the way the headset adjusts to the head. It has no adjustable moving parts like conventional headphones, but more of an elastic band that adjusts to your head. You can tighten or loosen it, but the default setting worked for me out of the box. This ensures no matter how I handle the headset, the fit will always be the same and no constant re-adjusting.
4. I have yet to experience any disconnections in my 2 weeks of use, I would say reliability has been a solid 100% until now.
5. I Like the deep black minimalistic appearance. Light on logos or loud designs. Almost looks like a perfect pair to my Black 2019 Razer Blade 15 laptop, and the rest of my black accessories.
6. Instant pairing, no wait times. Just turn it on and you're good to go.
7. No RGB - I love RGB all my other accessories are Razer Chroma, but all of them are constantly plugged in. This being a wireless headset, the lack of lighting will prolong battery life.
And the negatives:
1. Don't trust the DEMO in the store. They sort of messed the set-up on that one and this will sound bad initially.
2. I somehow don't like the software that came with this, I think it's not yet mature. I also don't bother turning on the surround sound feature from the software as I generally don't like double amplification and enhancements and would still prefer the sound processing to be performed by my Bongiovi DPS.
3. Lastly, don't expect to get blown-away with the sound. They are definitely not audiophile grade, but I would say they sound pretty good for the purpose it was meant to be - a gaming headset.
4. And it has no RGB lighting - if you're the kind who wants to be all lit up.
Conclusion: One happy buy, and I would recommend this to a friend.

SteelSeries Arctis 7 Headset Review
A few weeks ago we reviewed SteelSeries' flagship mouse, the Rival 700, but today our attention turn SteelSeries' flagship headset – it's wireless, has virtual 7.1 and costs £129.95. Worth it?Full Review
A:AnswerThis has the best of both worlds. You have a Wireless Adapter that you plug into PC for Wireless, but if Battery gets low they provide you a USB to Micro USB Cable that you can plug in to charge Headset and continue to uses when Battery gets low. A lot of Headset don't have this option. Real plus. I uses for Work (Skype for Business) and Console Gaming and have zero complaints with audio.
