Frequently Bought Together
The SteelSeries 7H 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 longlasting comfort. The first is open, cloth covered foam ear-cushions with hear-through functionality and the other is closed, leather ear-cushions with noise dampening foam that increases passive noise isolation. The 7H headset can be dismantled into 4 separate pieces, which allows for compact and easy transportation. The left ear-cup features an "invisible" retractable, unidirectional microphone system that can be discretely hidden when not in use. The durable braided cord includes built-in volume and microphone controls.
From the Manufacturer
Hear the game like never before. The 7H headset has an optimized soundscape for crystal clear high, low and mid-tones making it the ideal headset for the discerning audiophile as well as the serious gamer requiring the highest level of audio performance. The SteelSeries 7H 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 rich and detailed sound that the 7H delivers is powered by 50 mm drivers for a superior soundscape. It's crucial in gaming that sounds are both clear and recognizable. The sounds of footsteps in an FPS game or a notice in a MMORPG game can be the difference between winning and losing. The soundscape for the 7H was precarious to achieve. In order to be both an awesome headset for gaming as well as a powerful headphone for music, applications and VoIP, the 7H was tested and perfected by gaming professionals and musicians to achieve great sound for all ears.
The uni-directional microphone can be retracted and hidden in the left ear cup. This signature SteelSeries headset feature allows users to operate the headset in any type of environment, whether in your own home or out in public, without feeling ridiculous with a microphone projecting out of their cans.
Interchangeable Ear Cushions
It's important to have the option for interchangeable ear cushions, especially if it means communcating with your team during a tournament. The 7H comes equipped with leather ear cushions as well as cloth ear cushions that are interchangeable and can easily be swapped out for a completely different, hear-through or noise-cancelling audio experience. Regardless of what type of sound you prefer, both ear cushions surround the outside of your ear, making them comfortable to use.
The SteelSeries 7H features a durable, double braided, nylon cord with a built-in volume and microphone control. You can simply adjust sound levels manually instead of having to adjust it in your software settings.
It's no secret that concentration is essential for a great performance. Background noises can be disturbing when you're trying to aim at an opponent or complete a mission. The SteelSeries 7H headset is the solution you've been looking for with its optimized design and noise dampening leather ear cups. Drowning out the noise isn't the only way to maintain control.
Ideal for Travel
The ability to disassemble the 7H into 4 pieces (earcups, headband and cord) make it ideal for stashing in your bag and travel.

I really liked the way they looked, the black matte finish with the light chrome accents looked pretty sweet. I liked the detachable cable, and the fact that the headphone can be broken down into 3 pieces to travel with, although thats hardly a concern for me. And the 2 sets of earcups are another nice little feature.
The sound quality for gaming was quite good, I really appreciated how well they isolated outside noise so you can focus more on whats happening in the game. The bass was there but it seems to be less forward than the mids and the highs, but i believe it was done intentionally so you can hear footsteps and gunfire more clearly. No complaint there. Hooked up with the 7.1 virtual surround sound (if you're buying the usb version) they pinpoint direction noise quite well for a stereo headset.
My biggest issue, and ultimately the deal breaker on this headset is the build quality. At first they apear to be well built, great headphones, much higher build quality than siberias in my oppinion. However, there is a very common issue with the middle headpiece bridge. Basically the middle bridge piece was not built to handle the stress that is being put on the connector pieces, which are made of plastic. Overtime (usually around 1-5months) the middle piece starts the crack and breakdown due to the stress of having it stretch to fit your head while in use.Read more ›
The only down side is that I find the included cable is not long enough and since it is a custom cable you can't just go get another one.
After waiting over a week, this headset finally arrived on my doorstep. Unpackaging was simple, so I dived right into testing. This headset was tested on a X-Fi Titanium soundcard. I also used a 24-bit/96 KHz Burr-Brown DAC with dedicated headphone amp which I'll discuss later in the review. I used various source material, mainly uncompressed 16-bit/44 KHz PCM WAV files, 256 KBit encoded MP3's, some high-resolution 24-bit/96 KHz WAV's, and a few games (mostly FPS shooters).
First, the Pros of this headset:
- Packaging is very nice. Box is beautifully done, with multi-language layout. Velvet mold holding the headset in place. Wires, extra headphone cushions and advertisement pamphlets in separate bags.
- Headset is easily transportable. Can be broken down into 3 pieces. Headphone cusions snap off, allowing you to choose pleather cusions for isolated sound, or softer cloth cusions for a more open, airy sound. Cord is detachable from the left earcup via mini-usb input. Cord also comes with a 2 meter extension.
- Design wise, it is a nice looking headset. Chrome accents, rotatable cups, and pleather headpiece accompany the large earcups. Braided cord does not tangle, looks nice.
- The mic extends out of the left earcup and has unidirectional pickup. It can be bent in any which way and will stay in place. Quality was clear, overall good but not the best.
Now, the many Cons of this headset:
- As described by other users, the braided cord is a distraction. When rubbing against clothes, it makes a scratchy sound that vibrates and echos inside of the left earcup.Read more ›
Putting the headset on for the first time felt like putting on a pair of my favorite broken-in shoes. First off, compared to the Zowie - they are *amazingly* light, you won't believe it. They also come with a "Pleathery" earcup already on the speakers, but they offer a foam replacement. Let's talk about the Pleather though - this pleather is very uncommonly soft - something you can't see from the pictures. Even after hours of gaming, I didn't even notice they were there. The light weight and very high comfort means they fit and feel as snug as a hat. One final touch - even insignificant to most - is how the microphone works. When not being used, it can retract back into the headset as if it doesn't exist. *However* when it is in use, it comes out *just* far enough to get good sound, but not far enough to block your mouth. So; in late night gaming sessions you can drink your Mountain Dew totally unimpeded by the microphone.
Now let's talk about craftsmanship. Right out of the box you can tell they had the late night gamer in mind. In the past, half my earphones broke because they would get caught on my chair and they'd rip off my head. Steelseries 7h is completely *modular*.Read more ›
