The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ Wireless are the updated sibling of the SteelSeries Arctis 7P+ Wireless. While they have a similar design to other headphones in this lineup, what sets them apart is their chat mix wheel that allows you to adjust the amount of music and chat audio you hear. They also support Sonar, beta software that offers even more robust sound customization features than SteelSeries GG software, including a parametric EQ and a 7.1 Virtual Surround feature for a more immersive audio experience. Overall, they have long-lasting continuous battery life and decent mic performance. They also have low non-Bluetooth wireless latency thanks to their USB-C dongle, and their fit is comfortable enough for long gaming sessions.

Our Verdict

7.2 Neutral Sound

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ are decent for neutral sound. Out of the box, they have a very boomy sound that muddies vocals and lead instruments. They also have inconsistent audio delivery, and if you have thick hair or wear glasses, you may especially notice a drop in bass. That said, you can tweak their sound to your liking using their companion app's graphic and parametric EQs as well as EQ presets.

Pros
  • Well-built and comfortable design.
Cons
  • Disappointing frequency response consistency.
6.0 Commute/Travel

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ are passable for commute and travel. They're not designed for this purpose as they're bulky, and you need to use their USB dongle if you want to use them wirelessly. They also don't block out the low rumble of bus and plane engines and don't come with a case to help protect them when you're on the go. However, they have long-lasting continuous battery life and are well-built.

Pros
  • Well-built and comfortable design.
  • Over 60 hours of continuous playback time.
Cons
  • Disappointing frequency response consistency.
  • Poor noise isolation performance.
6.3 Sports/Fitness

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ are mediocre for sports and fitness. They're not designed for this purpose as they're bulky and only support wireless via their USB dongle. They can also fall off your head with moderate head movements. Luckily, their wireless design helps eliminate the chances of something snagging the headphones and pulling them off of your head.

Pros
  • Well-built and comfortable design.
Cons
  • Can fall off your head with moderate head movements.
7.0 Office

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ are satisfactory for office use. They have a comfortable and well-built fit suitable for long days at the office. They also have a long-lasting continuous battery life, so you don't have to worry about charging them back up during your workday. That said, they struggle to block out office chatter, and they leak audio at high volumes, which can bother others around you.

Pros
  • Well-built and comfortable design.
  • Over 60 hours of continuous playback time.
Cons
  • Poor noise isolation performance.
  • Leak some audio at high volumes.
7.7 Wireless Gaming

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ are good for wireless gaming. They have a highly customizable performance, thanks to their companion software, which includes a graphic as well as parametric EQ, noise gate, and virtual surround. Their USB dongle also ensures low latency, so your audio and visuals stay in sync while gaming. They have a comfortable fit, and their battery delivers over 60 hours of continuous playback time. If you like to game with others, their boom mic has a decent overall performance, ensuring you're heard clearly, even in a moderately noisy environment.

Pros
  • Well-built and comfortable design.
  • Decent overall microphone performance.
  • Robust sound customization features.
Cons
  • Disappointing frequency response consistency.
7.8 Wired Gaming

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ are very good for wired gaming. These headphones can be used with their mini B 8-Pin to 1/8" TRRS cable with full mic and audio compatibility. Their mic has a decent overall performance, ensuring that teammates hear you clearly, even if you're talking in a moderately noisy environment. These headphones have a comfortable fit for long gaming sessions, and their companion software offers a lot of customization features to help you adjust their performance to your liking.

Pros
  • Well-built and comfortable design.
  • Decent overall microphone performance.
  • Robust sound customization features.
Cons
  • Disappointing frequency response consistency.
6.9 Phone Calls

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ are alright for phone calls. Their retractable boom mic does a good job of capturing your voice, even in moderately noisy environments. If you're taking a call from a busy street, you should be heard clearly. However, the headphones have a poor noise isolation performance, and they struggle to block out background noise, so if you're taking a call, you should do so from a quieter environment to ensure that you hear your conversation well.

Pros
  • Well-built and comfortable design.
  • Decent overall microphone performance.
Cons
  • Disappointing frequency response consistency.
  • Poor noise isolation performance.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ come in two color variations: 'Black' and 'White'. We tested the 'Black' variant, and you can see our model's label here. If you come across another variant of these headphones, please let us know in the discussions.

Compared To Other Headphones

 The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ are wireless gaming headphones with low latency and robust customization features, thanks to their companion software, SteelSeries GG, and beta software called Sonar. Unlike the SteelSeries Arctis 7P+ Wireless, they also have a dedicated channel mixing wheel instead of sidetone, which is handy if you like to chat with others while you game. However, they can't be used wirelessly on Xbox consoles, so if you have this console, it's worth checking out the Xbox-oriented SteelSeries Arctis 7X Wireless instead.

Check out our recommendations for the best gaming headsets, the best wireless gaming headsets, and the best headsets for PS5.

SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless

Depending on your preferences, you may want to check out either the SteelSeries Arctis 7+ Wireless or the SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless. The Arctis 7+ are more customizable headphones as they're compatible with Sonar, which is beta software that offers even more features than standard SteelSeries GG companion software. It offers a parametric EQ and presets as well as adjustable levels for microphone and chat control. These headphones are also compatible with PlayStation 5's Tempest 3D AudioTech, which can help create a more immersive audio experience. However, the Arctis 9 support Bluetooth, which is good if you want to stay connected to your console and smartphone at the same time. They have slightly less non-Bluetooth wireless latency and better microphone performance.

SteelSeries Arctis 7P+ Wireless

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ Wireless are a bit more customizable than the SteelSeries Arctis 7P+ Wireless. In addition to compatibility with SteelSeries GG software, you can use the Arctis 7+ with Sonar, which is beta software from this manufacturer. It offers a parametric EQ and presets as well as a variety of levels for chat and mic control. Unlike the Arctis 7P+, the Arctis 7+ have a channel mixing wheel instead of a sidetone wheel so you can adjust the level of in-game audio and chat audio. The Arctis 7P+ have slightly lower non-Bluetooth wireless latency.

SteelSeries Arctis 7 2019 Edition Wireless

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ Wireless have a slight edge over the SteelSeries Arctis 7 2019 Edition Wireless. While both headphones are comfortable and well-built, the Arctis 7+ have a better battery performance, more robust sound customization features in their companion software, and have lower non-Bluetooth wireless latency. However, the Arctis 7 2019 have a better overall boom mic performance.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless

The SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless are slightly better gaming headphones than SteelSeries Arctis 7+ Wireless. While both headphones are comfortable and well-built, the Arctis Pro come with a wireless dock that offers several connectivity options, as well as features like channel mixing and EQ presets that you can adjust on the fly. They have a more neutral default sound profile, support Bluetooth, and their boom mic offers better overall performance. However, the Arctis 7+ offer a lot more customization features as they're compatible with Sonar, which offers a parametric EQ among other robust customization features.

Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ Wireless are more versatile gaming headphones than the Logitech G PRO X WIRELESS LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset. The SteelSeries are better-built headphones that you can use wired or wirelessly. They have lower non-Bluetooth wireless latency and support Sonar, which is beta software that offers a parametric EQ plus presets and adjustment sliders for chat and microphone control. They also have a better battery performance. However, the Logitech are more comfortable and have a more neutral default sound profile, which some users may prefer over the SteelSeries' boomy sound. Their boom mic also offers a better recording quality.

Razer BlackShark V2 Pro Wireless

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ Wireless are better gaming headphones than the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro Wireless. While both headphones are comfortable, the SteelSeries are better built, their mic has a better recording quality, and they have a superior battery performance. They also have more customization features via their companion software, and they have lower latency. However, the Razer's boom mic has better noise handling.

Razer Barracuda Wireless

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ Wireless and the Razer Barracuda Wireless are similarly performing gaming headphones, and you'll be satisfied with either pair. While both headphones are comfortable, the SteelSeries are better built, have a better mic performance, and have longer continuous battery life. Their companion app also offers more customization features. However, the Razer support Bluetooth, meaning you can stay connected to your console and smartphone simultaneously, have a more neutral default sound profile, which some users may prefer, and they have lower non-Bluetooth wireless latency. They're also prone to fewer inconsistencies in audio delivery, so you won't need to fidget with their fit as often as with the SteelSeries.

HyperX Cloud Flight

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ Wireless are better gaming headphones than the HyperX Cloud Flight. While both headphones are comfortable, the SteelSeries are significantly better built, have a virtual soundstage feature, and have a better battery performance. They're more customizable thanks to their companion app and have lower latency. However, the HyperX have a better microphone performance.

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ have a similar look to other headphones from this manufacturer, like the SteelSeries Arctis 7P+ Wireless. They're mostly black with a ski band headband design and a retractable boom mic. They come in two color variants: 'Black' and 'White'.

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ have a comfortable fit. Like other SteelSeries headphones, their ski-band headband design helps distribute their weight on your head. The padding also feels soft, and the ear cups have a good range of motion. However, they have a bulky design, and the headband has a limited adjustment range that can't expand to fit larger heads.

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ have good controls. There's a volume wheel and mic mute button on the left ear cup. Unlike the SteelSeries Arctis 7P+ Wireless, the right ear cup has a power button and channel mixing wheel instead of a power button and sidetone wheel. That said, the power button controls audio playback depending on how many times you press it, so you can use the headphones more casually. On the downside, the channel mixing and volume wheels have no distinguishing features to help you tell them apart. There isn't a middle notch on the volume wheel either. However, there are min and max stops for both wheels. There's also feedback when you mute and unmute the mic, as well as a light that turns red when muted.

Power button:

  • Single press: Plays and pauses audio. Also answers and ends calls.
  • Double press: Skips to the next track.
  • Triple press: Returns to the previous track.

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ aren't very portable. While the ear cups can swivel to lay flat, they can't fold into a more compact form. In their default position, they take up space, which can make it hard to take them with you on the go. They don't come with a carrying case either, and since they don't support Bluetooth, you'll need to carry their USB dongle to use them wirelessly.

Build Quality

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ have a good build quality. They're mostly made of plastic with fabric padding and an elastic headband strap. The boom mic is also retractable. They feel like they should survive a couple of accidental drops without taking too much damage. However, their hinges and yokes seem to be weak in comparison.

Stability

The SteelSeries Arctis 7 Plus have decent stability. They're not designed for sports and can fall off your head with high-intensity head movements. However, if you're gaming from your couch or desk, they shouldn't fall off your head. Their wireless design also helps reduce the risk of something snagging the headphones and pulling them from your head.

Using the 'Default' EQ preset, which results in the flattest response, the SteelSeries Arctis 7+ have a boomy sound profile. It can help emphasize sound effects like footsteps while you're gaming. Dialogue and lead instruments are bright and sparkly. If you prefer a different sound, their companion software offers robust sound customization features like a graphic and parametric EQ plus presets to help you adjust them to your liking. However, they're prone to inconsistencies in bass and treble delivery due to their design, so it's important to take the time to get a good fit.

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+'s bass accuracy is alright. The response is overemphasized across the range, although the low-bass is fairly neutral, so your mixes have adequate thump and rumble. They also have intense punch and boom, which can help emphasize footsteps in first-person shooter games. That said, this overemphasis can sound very muddy.

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+'s peaks and dips performance is good. There's a peak in the high-bass that adds intense boom to mixes, which can also muddy vocals and lead instruments. A dip in the mid-mid affects the right driver more prominently than the left, nudging vocals and lead instruments to the back of the mix. Another dip in the low-treble affects the left driver, dulling the upper harmonics of these sounds, and a peak in the mid-treble makes sibilants like S and T sounds piercing.

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+'s imaging performance is satisfactory. The weighted group delay falls below the audibility threshold, resulting in tight bass and transparent treble reproduction. The L/R drivers are also well-matched in frequency response, which helps stabilize the stereo image. However, there is a mismatch in phase and amplitude, and it's audible with real-life content. Audio seems a bit off-centered, and the left driver is a little louder. However, it can be hard to hear with real-life content. That said, imaging can vary between units and can indicate a manufacturer's quality control and ergonomics.

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+'s passive soundstage performance is sub-par. The soundstage is somewhat wide, and audio seems to come from out in front of you rather than inside your head. However, it doesn't feel very natural, and since they're closed-back headphones, the soundstage doesn't feel as open or spacious as open-back headphones.

The noise isolation performance of the SteelSeries Arctis 7+ is poor.

They also struggle to cut down ambient chatter, although they do a much better job of isolating you from the high-pitched hum of an AC unit.

Update 04/06/2022: Users have reported white noise in our 'Recording Quality' and 'Noise Handling' audio tracks. After looking into this, we noticed that this noise isn't caused by the microphone but by our testing equipment. It seems that some headphones, like those with a boom mic, can pick up this sound produced by our equipment more prominently than headphones with an integrated mic. We are currently monitoring and investigating this issue. There hasn't been a change to the scoring of these tests.

The SteelSeries Arctis 7+ have an outstanding battery performance. Like the SteelSeries Arctis 7P+ Wireless, they're advertised to last 30 hours continuously. However, we measured over 60 hours, even after repeating the test. Other SteelSeries headphones like the SteelSeries 7P Wireless also far exceed the reported battery life. That said, battery life can vary depending on usage. Luckily, the headphones are equipped with an auto-off timer to help conserve battery life when you're not using them. You can also use them while they're charging or passively with the included audio cable.

The SteelSeries GG software is outstanding. Within this app, you can customize the headphones' sound to your liking using its graphic EQ and presets. However, there are more features available in Sonar, which is beta software that you'll find as a tab within SteelSeries GG. Sonar offers even more robust features like a parametric EQ plus presets. There are the following settings with adjustable levels: 'Bass Boost', 'Treble Boost', 'Voice Clarity', 'Smart Volume', and 'General Gain'. You can access their 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound feature. There's a chat tab that offers a 10-band EQ, noise reduction, noise gate, volume stabilizer, and impact noise reduction, all of which come with their own adjustable levels. The microphone tab has the same settings as the chat tab, but we didn't notice a difference in performance between both tabs.
