SteelSeries 7H USB Pro Gaming Headset
Article Publish Date:
Finding a headphone set with good audio quality has become quite easier but also quite more complicated over the years. You see 5-10 years ago we only had just a handful of PC oriented headphone sets promising virtual 3D Surround sound but now we have dozens manufactured by large and small companies alike. Of course this plethora of gaming headsets in the market may confuse people but it also has allowed for competitive pricing, something which is very good for all end users. SteelSeries is amongst these companies and have a perfect track record in the PC market (so far at least) so it's only natural for us to take their latest gaming oriented headset, the 7H USB for a ride.
From day one, SteelSeries has been focused on making professional gaming gear that provide meaningful benefits to gamers of all skill-level, with the most demanding being those gamers whose lively hood depends on the performance of our products. We believe, as most gamers do, in winning, not trying! What originally began as a small two-person operation in Copenhagen back in 2001 has become a global leader in professional gaming products. SteelSeries recognized the need for superior, high-quality professional gaming gear that would give players a competitive edge. Fast-forward to today, and we've come a long way since our first glass mousepad. We have global offices in North America, Europe, and Asia, providing an integrated portfolio of products designed specifically for gaming. Fueling our growth is you, the gamer!
The main difference between the 7H USB and the Siberia line of headphones is the new design which i have to say is not as impressive as the Siberia V2 line. However what is impressive is the build quality of the product which really outshines the one found in all of the previously released SteelSeries headsets and it goes without saying that this is one of the reasons you are paying a premium for this set. Another difference is the improved audio quality (and positioning audio) compared to the previous series thanks to the 32Ohm impedance of the 50mm drivers (although the frequency response range is tighter than what we found in the 5HV2 set). Worth mentioning is that SteelSeries is currently manufacturing two 7H headset versions, one comes with a USB sound card while the other only uses the regular 3.5mm mini-jack which you need to plug on the back of your case and into your sound card. So let's go and have a closer look at the new 7H USB Pro Gaming Headset by SteelSeries.
