What customers say about "Headset"
SteelSeries Arctis 7 Lag-Free Wireless Gaming Headset with DTS Headphone
  • I wear the headset for several hours at a time and find it to be very comfortable on the head and ears.
  • The Arctis 7 audio is excellent during web conferences as is the mic. When hearing recordings of trainings I've produced, my voice is full and clear with no fuzz or background noise.
  • Arctis 7 works great for Nintendo Switch. I've used the headset wired with switch on airplane, and all good. I
  • The build quality of the Arctis 7 is AMAZING. They fit very snug and are comfortable.
  • Dedicated sound chip. These install with their own sound board. If you have an after market high end sound card these will bypass its sound chip.
  • A real pain to set up, not plug n' play
Corsair VOID Wireless RGB Gaming Headset, White
  • The surround-sound is VERY good, sounds kind be identified in all directions and I think even elevation (above/below you) The sound reproduction is slightly hollow, but overall pretty good.
  • I'm no audiophile, but I think the sound from this headset is really good.
  • Dolby 7.1 is great for fps titles and really makes you feel like you're in the game
  • The sound is good, with built in 7.1, playing games and watching movies is a blast.
  • The headset can get really uncomfortable during long gaming sessions (You won't even notice this if you don't play games for 4+ hours)

What customers say about "Microphone"
SteelSeries Arctis 7 Lag-Free Wireless Gaming Headset with DTS Headphone
  • The microphone is way better than the 800's (Important to me as I use these headphones to make calls for work from my PC)
  • Retracting mic that goes back into headset (protects the mic)
  • I really like the retractable microphone which stays out of the way when not in use.
  • Mic is the clearest I've had but, like others have said, at times has to be a bit close to your mouth to where I move it when I eat. I don't mind but some might.
Corsair VOID Wireless RGB Gaming Headset, White
  • Mic is very clear, but at first it falls right under your nose so people can hear you breathing if you use Team Speak or Discord.
  • The Mic performs wonderfully, my friends are constantly saying I sound like I am a podcast host due to how well the mic captures audio.
  • Mic quality is better than my razer krakens.
  • The mic is finicky, it's not that flexible and people have told me that my voice is very quiet over video calls.
  • Cheap plastic. The mic broke at the joint and now just dangles freely.

What customers say about "Features"
SteelSeries Arctis 7 Lag-Free Wireless Gaming Headset with DTS Headphone
  • The Arctis 7 has wireless capability. It also appears to have separate volume channels for both game and chat audio
  • The in-headset voice-game mixer works well - it's crazy how well it can boost voices (I tested in youtube and heard the narrations increase and the background music decrease)
  • I'm always a few feet from the usb transmitter and have never had any issue with lag or sound delay
  • Wireless is NOT compatible for Xbox One, so if you plan on using this for your Xbox only like myself, don't pay an extra $80 for a wireless feature that won't be put to use.
  • Sometimes, the processing that increases voice volumes using the chat mixer makes the voice very mid heavy - sounds processed
  • Software on PC could be a little better - allow for task bar icon to check battery life.
Corsair VOID Wireless RGB Gaming Headset, White
  • Great battery life (I keep the leds off and I'm able to get about 25 hours on a charge)
  • The battery life is good/OK however you can use these when plugged in, so no harm no foul.
  • Awesome RGB lighting with a lot of controls to change lighting patterns and colors.
  • Surround sound is awesome. I've been playing a lot of Overwatch, and this is crucial to knowing where enemies are coming from.
  • Black sides are a shiny plastic that attracts fingerprints. Not sure why they did this especially when the controls are there.
  • Not much bass. Not a great headset to listen to music with. Really high sounds can come off as "tinny"
