Pros and cons

According to our gaming headset expert
  • The Arctis 7 features the same high-end 40mm drivers as the much more expensive Siberia 800 series.
  • Thanks to DTS:X surround sound on PC, you hear sounds exactly as the game developers have placed the sound in the room.
  • The adjustable headband is interchangeable, useful if you want to personalize the headset.
  • The headset only works wirelessly via the USB receiver on PS4, PS5, and PC.
  • The tuning software is extensive, but adjusting it to your liking takes time.

Description

The SteelSeries Arctis 7 2019 is a wireless gaming headset with which you'll hear in-game sounds exactly as the developers intended. On a PC, the headset makes use of DTS:X technology, with which developers can determine ingame sounds accurately and spatially in the game. On the PC, PS5, and PS4, you'll have wireless sound via the USB receiver. On the Xbox One, the XBox Series S/X, and mobile devices, you have stereo sound. Playing for hours is no problem, as the adjustable headband is also suitable for larger heads. The ear cushions are made from special breathable material that you normally find in professional gym clothes. The headband can also be replaced with a headband with another pattern, so you can always play in your own style.

    Best headset after 2x bad buy

    Jo Kumpen | 17 February 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Ergonomic wearing comfort
    • Top quality sound
    • nice design
    • very good value for money
    • limited manual

    In the end, this was my 3rd choice after I first bought the Trust GXT 383 Dion 7.1 Bass Vibration Headset and as 2nd the Turtle Beach Stealth 700 PS4. The Trust sounded fine and comfortable to wear, but the connection options were not optimal for me personally for the PS4. The Turtle Beach, on the other hand, was a disappointment. Both wearing comfort and sound quality were below average. Especially the exaggerated bass bothered me. I was able to exchange both at Coolblue without any problems and opted for the Steelseries Arctis 7 on the advice of the specialist at Coolblue. Wow, what a great product. I'm glad I traded the previous one for this Arctis 7.

    Leave the packaging intact as much as possible. This way you can easily exchange it if it does not meet your expectations and the next owner also has an item as good as new via 'second chance'.

    Also a thank you to the Coolblue employees. Real top service! Absolutely satisfied customer!

    The best wireless gaming headset I've ever owned!

    Robert | 9 October 2017 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • wearing comfort
    • Build quality
    • No RGB lighting
    • Battery life
    • wireless
    • Options within software are limited
    • Default sound setting is not good

    The headset is really nice. The "ski goggles" headband is surprisingly comfortable and easy to adjust.
    Even after a few (game) hours I had little trouble with a pressing feeling around my ears or on my head. Especially when I compare this with my old Logitech G633 headset, which I could not bear after an hour.

    The battery lasts a very long time. Around 20 to 24(!) hours on 1 charge. This is also partly because Steelseries has omitted the fairground lighting.

    The range of the headset is also very good. I can effortlessly go through the entire house without losing the connection.

    The microphone sounds clear and clean (if I am to believe other people on Teamspeak and Discord).

    The big downside of this headset is the standard sound configuration. The sound is very faint out of the box.
    After some messing around with the equalizer, the sound is still very good. It is also advisable to use a third party equalizer to tweak the sound, because the options within the Steelseries software are very limited (Google is your friend).

    After some fine-tuning a great headset

    GW Mensink | 11 November 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Headphones are comfortable
    • Ability to mute voice chat
    • Battery lasts a long time
    • Build quality
    • Controls are on the earcup
    • Standard sound profile leaves something to be desired

    I am very happy with these headphones. After using Razer Kraken 7.1 headphones for two years, the wearing comfort of the Arctis was a relief. The Razer Kraken clamps quite a bit on the ears, which becomes annoying during longer sessions. The Arctis does not suffer from this thanks to the fabric strap.

    The software has some default sound profiles that I'm not fond of, especially when compared to the Razer Kraken 7.1. There are good descriptions online on how to configure the equalizer (using the Equalizer APO and the Peace Equalizer UI). In my opinion, this is a must if you are considering buying this product.

    What I personally find it difficult to get used to is that the controls are on the ear cups. When you wear the headphones you have to find the right button by touch. The volume knob turns very smoothly so it's easy to adjust it while feeling. As I wear the headphones more often, I notice that I am less bothered by this adjustment, but it does take some getting used to.

    The headphones have the ability to separate voice chat and in-game sounds. It is also possible to make one channel softer than the other, which can be useful if there are 'enthusiastic' people on Teamspeak...

    All in all I am very happy with this product. Affordable wireless headphones capable of good sound. Recommended for anyone who wants to invest some time in fine-tuning

    Definitely worth its price
    • good sound...
    • feels solid
    • fits well, even for longer periods
    • microphone gives good sound for others
    • wireless capabilities and supplied cables
    • ... after configuration
    • configuration only possible via steelseries software
    • search for a good balance of voice/game sounds

    The headset arrived on a Saturday,
    though the sound configuration was a hassle.
    After some fiddling in the software it was fine,
    so now I could game and chat with full courage.
    I called Eureka with my booty,
    and the others in the chat were startled by the clear sound.
    So you can say I'm happy
    buying the Arctic 7 was a good idea!

    Comfortable and nice sounding headset
    • Far Range / No Interference
    • Beautiful design
    • Retractable mic
    • Good software for Mac & PC
    • After setting super sound
    • Sound out of the box is flat
    • Hangs tight around the neck
    • No virtual surround on PS4

    A very good headset. I bought it for the PS4 and have no regrets. I had ordered the HyperX Cloud for this, but it was very disturbing, with the Arctis 7 I don't have any problems with this.
    The sound is a bit flat, but you can easily adjust it with the software from SteelSeries (SteelSeries Engine) after which it is in my opinion even better than the HyperX.
    For the surround sound fanatics, it is good to know that the headset only supports virtual surround sound on the PC, not on the PS4.

    Good headset with long battery life
    • good sound
    • long operating time
    • also charge while in use
    • not equally comfortable for every head

    A good headset for a lower price than the flagships of the common brands.
    The only downside is that the standard airweave ear pads are too shallow for my ears, so they hit the hard back. That gets annoying after a few hours of use.
    The Steelseries site offers replacement leather ear pads that are slightly stiffer and deeper, which solved my problem. The headset does sit a little tighter on the head and feels a little warmer.

    So far the steel series Arctis7 as best in use ps4
    • Light Headphones
    • Easy to connect
    • Battery lasts a long time
    • Volume can be quite loud
    • Bass doesn't always come into its own
    • No customization option in ps4
    • Not suitable for large ears

    Product arrived yesterday. So far there have been some positives and negatives
    Had the Razer Nari for this. That super nice sound only had a lot of echo in the party chat and was heard by my friends in the party chat. Having made the choice to switch to the steel series Arctis 7, no complaints so far. PS4 or the headsets should do something with voice canceling. Not applicable to many expensive game headsets while this is a must in the gamers world. They could also work more with the consoles so that not only the optimal sound is obtained from the PC but also from the console.

    A headset for everything.
    • Chat Dial
    • 7.1 surround sound
    • USB Dongle
    • No

    Because of the USB dongle you can easily connect your speakers. When you turn off your Headset, these boxes will turn on automatically. The Chat dial is also very useful if you are on discord and one is always talking through your game. Via this Chat dial you can also turn down discord and make the game audio louder. This also works with Teamspeak. Even if you mute your Mic, you will see a red light on your microphone that you have been muted.

    This headset is also highly recommended. I also tested these with my PS4 and also Xbox. It also works like it does on my PC. 1 Tip install Steelseries Engine and set the Headset profile to Performance for better quality in game.

    Great headset for a good price
    • Nice sleek design
    • Sturdy build quality and fits well, even for a long time
    • Easy to connect
    • Good stereo sound
    • Good microphone
    • No customization option in ps4

    After a quick and easy installation, it has now been in use for a few hours. Good stereo sound, so you get 'in the game' well and can hear where sounds are coming from. Headband is very comfortable because of the elastic band on your head.
