Steelseries Spectrum 7XB Wireless Headset Review
3 December 2011
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is How do you review a AED 999 gaming headset that fully and completely works for only one system? Do you rate it higher for it’s stellar performance and innovative technology that only works, and well, on a particular setting? Or cut it down for its incompatibility with other environments for which it was never made for in the first place?
Excerpt: SteelSeries, a company that when you hear the name you think of gaming gear for professionals. With their large selection of mice, keyboards, accessories, and headsets it is not easy to come out with another …
Excerpt: When we saw SteelSeries at this year E3 Expo, they showed us a variety hardware that is coming for the year. We shared most of these new hardware announcements with our readers at the time, but there were some things the SteelSeries held back.
Summary: While on the expensive side and not offering surround sound, the Spectrum 7XB is still a solid performer with a lot of versatility. A future version would be nicer with both ear cups (leather and cloth) packed in, a rechargeable battery and mic capabilities on at least PC/Mac not to mention surround sound, all for the same price.
Excerpt: Freedom from wires at last! Headsets. There are lots of them out there. At YARS we have reviewed a few, but have only scratched the surface so far! However, we have never had a wireless headset, until now. When I reviewed the last Xbox headset from Steelseries, the Spectrum 5XB , I commented that whilst I loved the Spectrum mixer, I was a little disappointed that they had chosen to use the 5H headset with it.
SteelSeries Spectrum 7XB Gaming Headset for Xbox 360 hands-on
5 August 2011
Excerpt: We have to begin this hands-on by saying that the SteelSeries Spectrum 7XB is a set of headphones for bona fide hardcore gamers, those that are willing to pay that bit extra to lend their Call of Duty, Gears of War, or Halo sessions a professional edge. That's why they are around £164.99. They cost more than a 4GB Xbox 360 itself... and proudly so. If you want to play in the big leagues, these are the headphones for you. But, what makes them special?
SteelSeries Spectrum 7XB Wireless Xbox 360 Gaming Headset
21 June 2011
Excerpt: 2 Flares 2 Flares × Recently we looked at the Spectrum 5XB , SteelSeries’ first attempt at an Xbox 360 gaming headset …. essentially their 5H headset with a clever adapter which allowed you to plug it into an Xbox controller for Xbox Live chat. Not to rest on their laurels, the SteelSeries’ boffins have been working hard behind the scenes to develop a new Xbox headset with a number of exciting features.
Conclusion: Unfortunately this reasonably good pair of headphones is really going to be overshadowed by its out of proportion price tag. You can put some of this cost down to the wireless, but even the relatively average sounding Razer Chimaera is only £80. You might get wireless range, you might get a very comfortable paid of earcups, but none of this makes up for the price tag, the slightly lacklustre EQ and the sound quality which while pretty good, is not worth this price tag.
Pros: Comfortable, Reasonably good sound quality, Very comfortable, Wireless with good range, Great for gaming and movie watching
Cons: Very expensive for what you get, Needs more volume, EQ settings arn’t as utilised as they could be, Very, very annoying fabric cable for VOIP
Summary: SteelSeries Spectrum 7xb to przede wszystkim solidne wykonanie i dobra jakość dźwięku. Decydując się na zakup właśnie tego zestawu otrzymamy sprzęt dobry, któremu naprawdę warto zaufać. Co prawda miejscami pojawiają się zakłócenia i dziwne szmery, których pochodzenia nie udało mi się zidentyfikować, ale należy pamiętać, że to technologia bezprzewodowa. Mimo tego słuchawki bardzo szybko odzyskiwały równowagę i dobrze służyły.
