"These cans are made to last. Built off a thick, hard-molded plastic frame that easily snaps into three pieces for packing, they’ll brush off drops, tumbles and errant carry-on smashings. And they’ve got that full, sweet signature SteelSeries sound; the best sound across games, music and movies.”"

"There are so many nice features on the 7H. It kind of makes it hard for me to pick my favourite one.

"Full size over the ear headsets are my favorite. Not only are they comfortable, but they also always seem to have a full rich sound. The 7H is no different. Their 18 - 28.000 Hz Frequency response covers well over what the human ear can pick up, basically you won?t miss a single sound."

"We have a true favorite in the 7H, even though we find it to be powerful than the Siberia v2. The comfort, isolation, quality and finish are simply perfect. The microphone, although sensitive to adjustments, is an excellent model. Everything is priced at 100 euros only and, despite some flaws, we assign five stars."
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 acheive. 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 acheive 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, with out feeling ridiculous with a microphone projecting out of their cans.
We also understand that it’s important to have the option, especially if it means communcating with your team during a tournament. The 7H is also equipped with interchangeable cloth ear cushions that can easily be swapped out for a completely different, hear-through audio experience. Regardless of what type of sound you prefer, both ear cushions surround the outside of your ear, making them comfortable to use.
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.
The feature to disassemble the 7H USB into 4 pieces including at each earcup, headband, and the cord, makes it ideal to travel with.
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.
SK Gaming’s QuakeLive legend, Shane “Rapha” Hendrixson, made use of an initial 7H prototype sample to grab $10,000 and 1st place at the IEM 4 World Championship Finals.
Not really a successor, however rather a revolutionary peripheral, the 7H is still natural step up the ladder from our previous H-line of headsets.
The worlds’ first give-away of SteelSeries 7H was initiated by HLTV and saw an whooping 1000+ entries to win the headset.
