Introduction

Product on Review: SteelSeries 7H
Manufacturer and Sponsor: SteelSeries
Street Price: 89



SteelSeries are ambassadors amongst the gaming elite, not only do they focus on gaming mice, keyboards and pads but they also have a rich product-line in the audio field. In the past we have had the pleasure of dealing with the Siberia series of headsets that SteelSeries brought to the market last year.

Back in March we went over to CeBIT and had an exclusive look at the upcoming SteelSeries 7H. Since then we have been eagerly waiting to get our hands on the 7H because as you can see from the video, not only can you disassemble the headset and take it with you to events a lot easier but its sound quality is said to be great for all-round usage both in entertainment and gaming scenarios. The 7H will offer gamers an interchangeable ear-cup featuring a closed memory foam solution or a soft-cloth solution that will allow certain sounds through (ideal for gaming teams specifically). The headset takes advantage of a 50mm driver giving your ears rich low, mid and high tones. Similar to the Siberia series, the microphone on the 7H is retractable, easy to conceal and braided with a volume control console.



SteelSeries Take:
The SteelSeries headset features 50mm drivers with a remarkably wide frequency response that delivers rich and detailed audio reproduction. The headset delivers a clean and clear soundscape from mood setting music to critical 3D positional sounds and alerts. The headset offers two interchangeable ear-cushions that provide long-lasting comfort: Open-type cloth covered foam ear-cushions with hear-through functionality and closed-type leather ear-cushions with noise dampening foam that increases passive noise isolation.
