Steelseries Arctis 7 gaming headset review

Hardcore PC gamers are well acquainted with Danish manufacturer SteelSeries: it makes mice, keyboards and gaming headsets that are perennially popular with the e-sports brigade.

The latest addition to its line-up is the Arctis 7, a mid-priced $149 (£159.99 / AU$259) wireless headset that boasts DTS Headphone: X surround-sound and some very neat design touches indeed.


The Arctis 7 makes a fine first impression: physically, it oozes class. It’s surprisingly light, and comes with what SteelSeries describes as a ski-goggle band (which it isn’t, since it sits on top of your head rather going around the back of it), with  natty Dazzle Ships-style camouflage print.

That design both provides a huge amount of adjustability for gamers with unusually large or small heads and ensures that the Arctis 7 is top of the class in the comfort stakes. It’s a headset you could happily wear all day.
