The SteelSeries 7H USB 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. The headset can be dismantled in 3 separate pieces, which allows for compact and easy transportation. The right ear-cup features an “invisible” pull-out unidirectional microphone system, that can be discretely hidden when not in use. The durable braided cord features built-in volume and microphone controls.
From the Manufacturer
Hear the game like never before. The 7H USB 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 USB headset features 50 mm drivers with a remarkably wide frequency response that delivers rich and detailed audio reproduction. This USB 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 USB 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 USB 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 USB was tested and perfected by gaming professionals and musicians to achieve great sound for all ears.
The SteelSeries 7H USB 12 channel equalizer has preset optimized profiles for gaming, music, and environmental settings. The USB provides 7.1 virtual surround and ensures gamers the exact same sound and settings no matter where they are in the world or at what computer they are playing. These features allow the user to personlize their settings according to what they’re listening to and where they’re listening to it.
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 communicating 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 USB 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 USB 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.
What's in the Box
The SteelSeries 7H USB Headset, USB soundcard and a 2m extension cord.

+ Durable, Flexible braided cord with extension and inline mute.
+ Earpieces rotate slightly for better fit
- Doesn't feel sturdy
- Slips off my head constantly
- Epic problems with the USB soundcard
Overall this is a great headset for gaming! Playing Elder Scrolls Online, I can tell which direction a snake or mob even if it's no on screen. NPC's will whisper behind me. It's great immersion. It's comfy even for hours of gameplay. If you're looking for noise cancellation, this isn't your device, but I like that. I work on an ambulance, and I slept with these things on, but I'm also use to sleeping to the hum of a diesel, so let that speak to their comfort. I am a petite female, and I find these things slowly slipping off the back of my head constantly. How the ear pieces swivel is great for their fit and I can comfortably have one earpiece off.
The USB soundcard is useless for me. My friends on Skype will constantly complain of beeping. A Google search will tell you this is common with USB headsets, to download specific drivers that don't exist anymore. The latest SteelSeries driver's didn't even have the option that supposedly fixes this issue. With the extension that came with this item, it comfortably reaches my rear jacks, and I can disconnect them from the extension to take them with me. As far as their collapsability, I haven't tried it yet. These headphones seem of good quality, but the connectors don't feel that sturdy. The cord is great though! Overall, I don't think I'll purchase another Steelseries due to the driver/beeping issue, but I am satisfied overall with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone on a budget, especially if you're trying to find a minimalistic device with no fancy LED's.
- had to send them back to manufacturer every time and got a replacement
- after the warranty expired I used the square trade warranty and got a different brand.
- I have 4 headphones within one year, which says a lot for their quality system when they manufacture them
1st - some bearing was loose inside the right headpiece and was rolling around
2nd - loose connection
3rd - random crackling
4th - piece where the headset separates from the arch broke, even though I never separated the headset.
5th - plastic cracked
Also DO NOT BUY this product if you plan on using the microphone that comes with the headset. It will pick up ALL the sounds from your game and feed it back to the person you are talking to, which becomes VERY ANNOYING to your gaming friends.
What really bothers me is that this was almost the exact same problem I had with the steel series headphones I had before these. Before this I had the 4H usb model and again, while they worked they sounded great, but something went wrong with the volume control on that one too, that time causing the volume up button to somehow become stuck so the sound would randomly just leap up to max at any given moment. Nothing was touching the button and it wasn't pressed down or stuck at all, something was just broken or loose inside the control somehow and these little volume control boxes can't be opened without breaking them so there's not a thing you can do about it when this happens.
I take very good care of my electronics and in neither case was anything dropped or crushed or touched by anyone other than myself so this is not something that I am causing, and looking through some of these reviews it looks like it's not just me that this is happening to. It's unfortunate, because I really did enjoy both sets of headphones while they functioned, but I won't be wasting any more money on any more Steel Series products if I just have to keep getting a replacement every 6-12 months.
