The Arctis 7 is a closed-back, wireless gaming headset. The sound it produces is not bassy, yet you do get detailed highs and good mids. This headset is great for gamers who prefer a more detailed sound rather than a powerful and boomy sound signature.
Pro On-ear cup controls
A myriad of headset functions are within easy reach, as there are buttons and dials on the ear cups. You get a mute button, the volume wheel, USB charging port and 3.5mm audio out on the left ear cup and on the right ear cup, you get a balance adjust wheel between game and chat audio.
Pro Should fit well on most heads
The Arctis 7’s headband adjusts to your head size. Instead of the usual one-piece headband design, the Arctis 7 features a two-piece setup. The top part is a thin piece of aluminum with thin padding, while a stretchable fabric strap is what comes into contact with the head.
Pro Great highs and mids
The highs are the highlight of the Arctis 7’s sound signature. They are slightly boosted, which gives the sound a lot of detail. It should be very easy for you to hear environmental audio effects like the wind and the rustling of leaves or grass. This also makes distant footsteps and gunshots easier to hear, and can give you an edge in competitive gaming. The mids sound natural and full, so game dialogue won’t easily get lost in the mix. The bass is not very powerful, though you still get a decent amount of punch from explosions and gunshots.
Con Not very comfortable
You may experience some discomfort when wearing this headset for extended periods of time. The padding on the ear cups is not very thick. Your ears may come into contact with the driver housing which may hurt. Also, if you have a larger sized head, the top portion may come into contact with the metal headband piece, which may cause pain.
