The SteelSeries Arctis 7P uses 40-millimeter neodymium drivers that packed a punch while gaming. The cans were great at highlighting voices over other tracks, but balanced music and sound effects so everything meshed well. In Watch Dogs: Legion, the headset was excellent at highlighting the low suspenseful beat during cutscenes.

The SteelSeries Arctis 7X headset has a steel band wrapped in a black and green elastic, making it match the Xbox's aesthetic. The elastic band makes for a comfortable experience, as it puts little pressure on the top of my head instead of tightly squeezing down. I love a deep bass response in my headsets — for that thumping feeling you get in your chest.

The SteelSeries Arctis 7P Wireless is available now for $149 (£159, about AU$210) It's compatible with Sony's Tempest 3D Audio Tech and offers 24 hours of battery life. The ski goggle adjustments aren't ideal for activities outside of stationary gaming. Music quality is serviceable but a bit on the flat end.

SteelSeries Arctis 7 2019 Edition hits the sweet spot between price and performance. It has a ski-goggle-style headband that keeps the weight of the unit from digging into your delicate cranium. The chat mix wheel at the rear of the left earcup is a revelation, saving you from delving into in-game volume settings.
