Currently being sold directly on the SteelSeries website, the Arctis 7X is a great wireless headset for Xbox consoles. The big draw here is that it can also work wirelessly on several other devices, including PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Android devices. Using this headset wirelessly is very easy, as all you need to do is plug in the included USB-C adapter and your console will automatically sync up with it.
For its hardware, you’re getting a lossless 2.4 GHz wireless audio, a Discord-certified ClearCast bidirectional microphone, and the same high-quality speaker drivers as the pricier Arctis 7. That means that you’ll be able to pick up on more subtle and nuanced sounds in your games, perfect for when you need a tactical advantage in battle royales or you just feel like spiking your heart rate in a horror game.
Great performance is complemented by superb comfort provided by the adjustable, steel-reinforced headband and plush, memory foam earcups. As for battery life, the Arctis 7X runs for approximately 24 hours on a full charge, so it can easily last a few gaming marathon sessions.
The Arctis 7X isn’t the newest model in SteelSeries’ premium headset lineup, but it’s still a top performer that is definitely worth considering if you’re looking for a universal headset. Its successor, the Arctis Nova 7X, goes for $180, so the $100 price for this similarly great headset is an excellent deal.
