Had the SteelSeries 5H for a couple or years, and I have really enjoyed them!

Now I just got the 7H version (7.1 virtual surround sound) as a Christmas present, which is awesome sauce! It has interchangeable ear-cushions for both hear-through cloth and noise dampening leather, the latter blocks out 95% of the outside noise. The headset itself delivers rich and detailed sound, and the actual design is very nice as well. It has a pull-out microphone and can be dismantled into 4 separate pieces.

SteelSeries 7H = thumbs up from me!

Opinions are like assholes - we all got 'em and they all stink!

Yup. My choice was between the 7H and the G35. Went for the G35 in the end because the microphone on the 7H recieved some bad criticism, since it can't really be positioned differently. Sometimes you'll need to be talking louder a bit because the mic isn't near your mouth or something. Otherwise it's a great headset too!

the G35 is especially awesome when you turn EAX on, though i found playing with this a surround sound headset in mumble makes some of the nice ingame sounds disappear

also the g35 sometimes you cant hear people talking to you in voip when you join a game (usually when coupled with ventrilo) so you need to minimize the game and run a sound test in vent then everything works, that and sometimes you get crackling on bad quality or very high frequency bass sounds when your near a chopper in game on max volume and you have the surround on.

i love how the mic gets muted and unmuted as you lift it up and down, its actually very nice.


lol this is turning into how much i love the g35 thread never knew so much people actually used it given its rather high price

P.S. i got much better sound quality in Win7 than in vista for some reason.

ok I bought the Steelseries 7H. What sound setting do you use to set it up? Do you use the usb sound card thing that come with it? All I have for sound is the mother board sound and a labtop sound, I use both to play. So no soundcards to speak of just the basics and the usb sound card it came with. So how do I know I;m getting the 7.1 features? What do I click to get it working

Best I ever had was the Speedlink Medusa 5.1 non USB set. Had mine for 2 years before I dropped them. Best gaming headset going as long as you hook them up to a high end soundcard. BF2 was made to use high end sound cards and not onboard crap.

I can only agree on the Medusa headset. I have the same combined with an X-fi card. The sound is amazing.
On smaller maps like Basrah and Fallujah, I can pinpoint cars and bikes down to an location within 50-100 meters anywhere on the map. The sound is that precise with X-fi and medusa.

Armour I can hear before anyone else in my sqd usually and can also pinpoint the direction perfectly across great distances.

Ive tried the "Virtual" Surround on ordinary headphones, and to be honest, that sucks compared to the Medusas.
