It’s really pretty, the new PlayStation 5 in its classy white. But how stupid does a black headset look? SteelSeries has the solution. The Arctis 7P Wireless is not only a wireless offshoot of the well-known headset series, but also comes in the matching colors for the PS5. Plus, it works on a variety of other platforms too, making it an attractive bite to eat.
Not a cheap bite, though, because at 179.99 dollars the Arctis 7P Wireless
Only Xbox owners look into the tube, but at least they can comfort themselves on the gamepad via the 3.5 mm jack. The Arctis 7P can even be used on the Google Stadia controller – a real all-rounder. In addition to the dongle and adapter, a micro-USB-to-USB charging cable (why not USB-C?) And a jack cable are also included. So everything is there that you need. For the variety of cables and the tiny dongle, a bag would have been a nice-to-have, but the lack of it is bearable.
This wonderfully balanced and dynamic sound ensures that the headset is not only a pure pleasure for crashing action games. Language-heavy titles such as role-playing games or adventures also sound really nice with it. The Arctis 7P even cuts a damn good figure when it comes to music, and it is no worse for films or videos. The Arctis 7P Wireless is a real multitasker that is ideally suited for pretty much all applications (and games) on almost all platforms. This means that the headset easily does justice to its high price.
A treat on the side: the Arctis 7P Wireless already supports the Tempest 3D AudioTech of the PlayStation 5. We’ll take a closer look as soon as we have a console in our editorial office.
