Features

First, let's take a look at their frequency response which is 20 Hz - 20 kHz. Speaking of SteelSeries Arctis 7 specs I have to say that their sensitivity is 98 dB and impedance is 32 Ohm.

Using the wireless appliance, you can listen to music for about 24 hours which is a battery life of the Arctis 7. You will be warned when the headphones need charging since they are equipped with a battery level indicator. In addition, the device has a battery-free listening mode. To connect SteelSeries Arctis 7 with other appliances you have to use Wi-Fi.

Sound

The device provides an incredibly strong, crystal-clear mid-range, along with a well-balanced and quite precise treble. However, the bass is a bit weaker. With regard to gaming, SteelSeries Arctis 7 boasts 7.1 digital surround sound.

Noise cancelling

Unfortunately, these headphones do not have a noise-canceling function. It can block ambient noise only with the big ear cups.

Connectivity

The wire of the headphones is detachable and 120 cm/4 ft long. Additionally, you get a charging cable. These headphones do not support aptX. They have a charging port for micro USB and a 3.5 mm jack connection.

Comfort and design

The device SteelSeries Arctis 7 weighs 355 g/9.9 oz and has an adjustable headband. You should have a lot of space in your backpack for these headphones if you are going to travel with them since a carry case does not come with the Arctis 7. Moreover, the headphones do not fold.

A detachable microphone allows you to make phone calls and for control, you have to use built-in buttons. Also, this appliance has app control.
