Being a gamer my husband was thrilled when I asked if he wanted to review Steel Series 7H USB headset.
This headset is unlike any he’s used before and he’s very pleased with the durability, quality added features of the headset. I also tried these headsets and can honestly say the sound quality is awesome and the features you can control on via the software is amazing. There’s a graphics equalizer, atmosphere selector and so much more that we were blown away.
- Fit well around the ears. With the leatherette ear cups they really block out noise. He has some noise canceling headsets and they take batteries and there’s the white noise to block out the sound but these are just as efficient with no batteries and no white noise buzzing in the background. There’s also a cloth earcup that allows sound through which might come in handy if you’re needing to listen to your wife once in a while or hear the kids. The cloth is also a bit cooler since they allow air to travel through them.
- Braided cord. This is wonderful as the cord doesn’t get tangled and twisted plus it disconnects from the headset which is great for travel.
- Microphone is retractable into one of the earpieces so it’s not in the way
- Breaks down into 4 pieces for travel. Other portable or foldable headsets have weak points in the joints that increase the risk of them breaking. These actually pull apart and they’re sturdy enough it’s harder to get them apart than it is putting them back together.
- A bit tight across the head. It’s padded and it may be his head size but there was a little discomfort at first. I’m sure it’s something that can be gotten use to. The good thing with the snug fit they don’t slide off when you move your head
- No software disc included. USB Soundcard drivers and software has to be downloaded from SteelSeries website
