A good product that falls short of greatness.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The SteelSeries 7H USB gaming headset provides very good sound quality, along with convenient features like a retractable mic and the ability to be disassembled for easy portability, all at a price under $100. But reviews are mixed on comfort and build quality, with some users and critics raising concerns about fit and durability. Our advice: given their good audio quality, these could be worth considering, but you should find a retailer (or friend who has a set) who will let you try them on, and see how they fit your head. And save your receipt, in case you need to get them repaired under SteelSeries' one-year warranty.
