Analysis:

The Audio-Technica ATH-PDG1 was loved by reviewers at Wirecutter (NYTimes), a highly trusted source that performs reliable in-depth testing. It did great in its "The Best Gaming Headsets" roundup where it was named its "Also great", which, in itself, makes it a product worth considering.

As for the Steelseries Arctis 7 (2016) analysis - it impressed reviewers at Techradar, a source that's known for its objective testing and well-thought-out methodology - it performed great in its "The 10 best PC peripherals to get your game on this Christmas" roundup and earned the "Ranked 1 out of 10" title.

We couldn't find any sources that tested both of these Gaming Headsets, so we only analyzed how they performed in reviews from different sites.

We first examined which sources rated each of these best and found that the Audio-Technica ATH-PDG1 got its highest, 8, rating from PC Gamer, while the Steelseries Arctis 7 (2016) earned its best, 9, score from PCmag.

Lastly, in order to better compare them to the rest of their competition, we averaged out their review scores. The Steelseries Arctis 7 (2016) managed to get 8.8 out of 10 - considerably better than the 7.2 review average of Gaming Headsets in general - whereas the Audio-Technica ATH-PDG1 earned 6.5 points.

It should be said that doing a direct Audio-Technica ATH-PDG1 vs. Steelseries Arctis 7 (2016) comparison might not be entirely fair due to the difference in their prices - some sources don't put much weight on value for money and thus tend to give better review scores to more expensive products.
