Steelseries has most of their headsets on sale right now, but the Arctis 7 is the best value in my opinion. I just grabbed one of these at Best Buy a few days ago for $129 and then realized that steelseries started a sale yesterday that includes a free storage bag. So I added the leather earpads for another $15 for a total of $119. No tax charged.

There are also some 10% and 12% coupon codes in you look around, but they won't apply to the sale prices.

Really want to get these, but cant work with phone or xbone. Kind of a waste just to get them for PC.

Honest question, not a dumper:

Why go with a gaming headset vs dedicated headphones plus a mic?

I do some PC gaming but also enjoy hifi music, so I'm familiar with reputable headphone brands. It's hard for me to imagine using a pair made by a company known for mouse pads or budget PC speakers and mice (SteelSeries, Logitech, etc.) versus companies that focus exclusively on sound reproduction (Sennheiser, AKG, Grado, HifiMan, the list goes on ad infinitum) and adding an inexpensive clip-on mic. Admittedly a headphone amp might be necessary for some hifi options.

I understand the convenience of having the mic boom built in, but once your clip-on mic is attached, it's pretty low maintenance IME. Is it for compatibility with console systems?

Again, not dumping. Just wondering if there is a feature set with these headsets that I've missed.

Great headset. I got this 2 weeks ago for the same price using a Google express promo. The mic isn't bad and I can actually pinpoint players in Overwatch.

I have a huge head and have no issue with these at all. Maybe only if you have a tall head vs wide.

Well, the whole point of getting a wireless headset is mobility. So, sure, you can get a dedicated wireless headset/mic but they both need to be very low latency...so you can't go with bluetooth.

You would also have to make sure you can wear both together without interfering with each other.

First off they need to be wireless most of the time. So good luck finding a wireless battery usb dac, that also has a mic in. But they do have clip on mic kits for most of the high end wired cans.

You kind of stepped in the fact that these people are not making the cans. Most of the time they are using high end drivers etc, with lower cost backs and cabling. Creative is known for this, and its how you can get a $150 Sennheiser for $80, if you dont want the fancy outside.

But the main reason for these, no microphonic pickup from a wire, and the mic will only pick up you, not your scratching or other people in the room, or your horrible typing sound.

In my case I have my PC and PS4 hooked up to my tv in the living room. Since I'm sitting in a living room chair without a desk, dedicated mic isn't a good option, plus there would be cables running across the floor. If I used my PC at a desk then I'd probably use separate headphones and a mic since I already have much better dedicated headphones than Steelseries is capable of making and you can get an affordable mic that will give better audio than any headset. For consoles there's a lot less freedom there.

I wonder if they learned their lesson from the Bullyhunter series. Are these rebranded from the show's failure?

How these compare to Logitech G930 and are the ear pads replaceable?

edit: They do have replacement pads and looks like it exceeds the G930 in every way... ordered.

I tried these but found the max volume way too low compared to other headsets

They were definitely the most comfortable headset I'd ever put on though

Why do relevant sales need to come out just too late for me all the time? I just spent about a week researching the best PC headsets, and was torn between these, HyperX Cloud Alphas, or Sennheiser PC37X. If I hadn't ordered the PC37Xs literally two days ago, I'd be jumping on this.

A note on the mic- I bought these specifically for the limited sound pickup since I work from home and have kids. My kids can be screaming downstairs and my coworkers don't hear, but I come through great. My company paid for these for me, but I'd pay $104 easy now that I've used them. No going back.

The physical mute button is really convenient, and the boom lights up orange when I'm muted, so my wife knows she can talk to me even if I'm in a meeting.

Overall the quality of the drivers is quite good. I would definitely recommend using PEACE to fix the sound profile. There is a thread on /r/steelseries with someone's loadout that I use.

Only minor complaint is that since I work reclined, sometimes the knobs for controlling the volume and the fader get nudged. This would be a problem if you plan to use them in bed or something, but could probably be fixed with a piece of tape. Still the best option on the market for physical background noise reduction and a great set of headphones to boot.

I've been looking at these for a little while, want a new gaming headset for my laptop just struggling to make a choice, think $100 is about what I wanted to pay. Almost bought the g933s a while ago but these look a lot less cumbersome.

I saw a review where someone mentioned their volume was very quiet. On mine (used for PS4) I have PS4 output volume set at around 30-40% and at that volume the headset can get louder than I'm comfortable with. Maybe it's different with PC but I only used them on PC for a few minutes to set up the sound profile.

Briefly reviewed the comments and didn't see it mentioned. The Wireless Pro version is also on sale for $279.99 (normally $329.00) and also comes with the free carrying bag. Originally dismissed this post since I recently bought the pro version a few days ago but went back to check their site. Was happy to see the Pro on sale and save $50.00 on my recent purchase.

For quality, I have been using these non stop for the last few days. Excellent mid to high ranges although there is a little to be desired bass wise. The fact that the wireless pro does Bluetooth and PC audio is amazing. I can answer calls and watch content on my phone without interrupting my PC audio stream. Im hoping the Galaxy S8 gets the Pie update soon to get the built in Dolby equalizer.

Hope this helps! OP, I'd update the main post if possible to add that this is also on sale.
