Up Close - The Headset

Most of the 7H is made of very high quality plastic. Anyone who has experienced a high-end item will be aware of the difference between the kind of plastic that frozen food comes in and the type used in a Mercedes or similar. The 7H definitely is of the superior type. The headband has the SteelSeries logo embossed in the top. Comfort for the top of your head is handled by a soft leather bar which really handles what little weight there is with aplomb.

The hingest between the cups and the headband are again of a high calibre. There is a lot of movement to ensure the cups themselves fit perfectly on a variety of head shapes, without it ever being wobbly or similar undesirable traits.

The left ear piece certainly has a lot going on. As always the microphone is on the left hand side and typically for SteelSeries its recessed in nice so it's unobtrusive when not in use, but easy to grab when you have to make/answer a call.

At the lower end is the connector for the remote control cable. Whilst it might initially seem strange to not have the cable hard-wired, it means that if some accident should befall the cable it's a very quick replacement without needing to return, or even purchase, the whole unit. The devil is in the details.

Quality has always been high with SteelSeries microphones and so it's understandable that this, the highest of their range, continues their adherence to excellence. Because it folds away so neatly you haven't got a giant lump stuck to your head when not in use, and when extended it is flexible enough to go wherever you place it, but sturdy enough to stay there.

We say that is a very good headphones. I'm just afraid when I see the microphone extended... I seem to see the eye of an alien.
