SteelSeries Arctis 7X is the cheapest it’s EVER been

Gaming headset has price slashed for Boxing Day

If you were lucky enough to come downstairs to a brand new Xbox Series X or PS5 on Christmas morning, you might want to consider picking up an accompanying headset to get the most out of your gaming experience.

You could do a lot worse than the SteelSeries Arctis 7X, which was released in August and is one of the most versatile headsets currently on the market, compatible with a range of consoles and gaming PCs.

Back in August, the Arctis 7X was released to the UK market at an RRP of £175, but it has recently been slashed to just £140 at both Amazon and Argos just in time for the Boxing Day sales – we’ve done the sums and that’s a healthy saving of 20%!

Though the black and green design lends the Arctis 7X a distinctly Xbox feel, this headset works across all major consoles, PCs and Android phones – all you need is the USB-C integration commonly found across these devices. A USB-C dongle makes connectivity to different devices a simple process, and a USB-A adaptor is even included to support devices that aren’t equipped with a USB-C port.

Weighing in at a relatively lightweight 340g, the SteelSeries model doesn’t compromise on feature set, either. Battery life stands at an impressive 24 hours, and the lossless 2.4 GHz audio makes for a genuinely immersive gaming experience, though the Arctis 7X does struggle a bit when used to listen to music.

Though it’s not the cheapest gaming headset on the market, at £140 the Arctis 7X is hardly a bank breaker given its versatility and feature set. If you’re looking for a new headset for any of the major consoles then this is definitely one of the best options on the market right now.
