The biggest problem with the Steelseries Spectrum 7XB is the price tag. At AED 999, you could buy an Xbox 360 or PS3, or a graphics card, or even a good motherboard, or an entire set of hardware from Steelseries’ other lineup. Is it worth...

Overall, the Steelseries 7XB is a solid product; however there are a few glaring omissions to its feature set. First of all, the lack of a rechargeable battery is a strange choice, especially considering the headset’s high price point. Also, the...

SteelSeries showed off this Spectrum 7XB while at E3 and then sent one over afterward for us to check out. Since we love game audio here at GDN, I was very happy to see it because my main PC headset is a Sonar 5.1 Cyber Snipa, which is USB. Specturm...

Headsets. There are lots of them out there. At YARS we have reviewed a few, but have only scratched the surface so far! However, we have never had a wireless headset, until now. When I reviewed the last Xbox headset from Steelseries, the Spectrum...

The SteelSeries 7XB performs very well indeed.Audio reproduction is excellent. When we reviewed the 7H a fortnight ago we were astounded by the clarity of the audio across the whole range. Bass was tight and deep, mids were clear and the highs were...

Unfortunately this reasonably good pair of headphones is really going to be overshadowed by its out of proportion price tag. You can put some of this cost down to the wireless, but even the relatively average sounding Razer Chimaera is only £80....

Enkelt uttryckt består Spectrum 7xB av två enheter: lurarna och en liten dosa som du ansluter till Xboxens analoga ljud (det medföljer sladdar för att koppla in den mellan konsolen och teven), samt till en av konsolens usb-portar....
