"We have to begin this hands-on by saying that the SteelSeries Spectrum 7XB is a set of headphones for bona fide hardcore gamers, those that are willing to pay that bit extra to lend their Call of Duty, Gears of War, or Halo sessions a professional edge."

"If you want to play in the big leagues, these are the headphones for you. But, what makes them special? The answer: Everything."

Meet the Spectrum 7xb

The SteelSeries Spectrum 7xb combines advanced wireless technology with Steel-Series’ signature features like interchangeable earcups, a retractable mic system and a 4piece travel-friendly breakdown. We’ve added a few new features that will take Xbox 360® gameplay to an entirely new audio level. Wireless never looked (and sounded) so good.


Sound

Advanced Sound

The Spectrum 7xb is powered by 50mm drivers for a superior reproduced soundscape. Perfected for both Xbox 360® and PC gaming,the Spectrum 7xb was tested by professional gaming teams in order to achieve great sound for all ears. The 7xb can also be used as a wireless headphone to enjoy music, TV and movies.


Earcup

Interchangeable Ear Cushions

It’s important to have options. The Spectrum 7xb is equipped with leather ear cushions that are interchangeable with cloth earcups that can easily be swapped out for a completely different audio experience. Regardless of what type of sound you prefer, both ear options surround the outside of the ear, making them comfortable to use. The cloth ear cushions are sold separately.

Button

Five Powerful Buttons

All found on the left earcup, 7xb wearers can access 5 important buttons that will ultimately improve the way they control their audio and hear their game:

  • On/Off: Obviously turns the 7xb on/off
  • Volume + : Turns the in-game audio up
  • Volume – : Turns the in-game audio down
  • LiveMix: Improves the balance and mixing of Xbox LIVE™ chat and in-game audio, so that voice communication is mixed perfectly and is clearer than ever before over the sounds of gunfire and explosions, without having to increase the volume of the headset and risk hearing damage.
  • ExactSND: Provides pre-set equalizer settings that can be quickly switched between to improve directional sounds, environmental sound, and entertainment.

HEADSET & HEADPHONE

The Spectrum 7xb is specifically designed for Xbox 360 game play. Its full roster of communication features including the unidirectional microphone, independent volume controls and LiveMix™ are fully supported when using your Xbox 360. Though it’s designed as a Xbox-specific headset, the 7xb can also operate as a headphone (meaning audio in only) with your PC, Mac®, and any system that can connect through the RCA /USB cables on the wireless transmitter.


Pull-out Microphone

Retractable Microphone System

The uni-directional microphone is only compatible with Xbox 360® and can be retracted and hidden in the left ear cup. This signature and durable SteelSeries headset feature allows users to operate the headset in any type of environment, whether in your own home or out in public. The easy and safe mic storage makes travel to tournaments or to a friend’s house worry-free.

Wireless

The Spectrum Transmitter

Operating up to 9 meters (32 ft.) away, the Spectrum Xbox 360 transmitter connects the headset to your Xbox. The headset features a smart LED to notify when the headset is connected.

Automatic Power Off

After prolonged inactivity (approx. 5 minutes) the SteelSeries 7xb will automatically shut down ensuring that you get the most out of your 20+ hours of battery juice from the two AAA batteries powering the headset.


Multiple Users

Multiple Headset Connections

Now, because gaming is usually more fun when you play with others, you can connect up to 4 SteelSeries Spectrum headsets to your TV/Xbox 360 at a time.

Equalizer

LiveMix

SteelSeries LiveMix allows you to hear everything that matters in team-based games; you simply click one button to activate this feature. We will balance the levels between Xbox LIVE® chat and in-game audio on-the-fly, as the game develops around you, making it easier than ever before for you to hear your teammates.
