Take your Xbox 360 gameplay to an entirely new audio level! The SteelSeries Spectrum 7xb is equipped with advanced wireless technology and 50mm drivers for premium wireless audio quality. Five powerful buttons (on/off, volume +, volume -, LiveMix and ExactSND) on the left earcup improve the way you control your audio and hear the game. The LiveMix button allows you to activate LiveMix feature for improved balance and mixing of Xbox LIVE chat and in-game audio with the a press of a button. The ExactSND button allows you to switch between three settings that have been preconfigured for three very different uses.
The SteelSeries Spectrum 7xb also comes with some of SteelSeries’ signature features like interchangeable earcups, a retractable mic system, and even a four piece travel-friendly breakdown. You can connect up to four SteelSeries Spectrum headsets to your TV/Xbox 360 at one time for group game playing. After prolonged inactivity (approx. 5 minutes), the SteelSeries 7xb will automatically shut down, ensuring that you get the most out of your 20+ hours of battery juice from the two AAA batteries powering the headset.
ADVANCED SOUND The rich and detailed sound that the Spectrum 7xb delivers is powered by 50mm drivers for a superior reproduced soundscape that delivers clear sound from footsteps and grenade drops to team communication and a game's soundtrack. Perfected for both Xbox 360 and PC gaming, the Spectrum 7xb was tested by professional gaming teams to achieve great sound for all ears.
INTELLIGENT WIRELESS The Spectrum 7xb operates with wireless 4Mbit/s bandwidth for true “lossless” digital audio. It was designed to avoid interference from other devices, using intelligent frequency hopping up to 344 times/second to offer crystal clear audio. The headset will operate up to 32 feet away from the Xbox 360 transmitter and features a smart LED to notify when the headset is connected.
INTERCHANGEABLE EAR CUSHIONS It’s important to have options. The Spectrum 7xb is equipped with leather ear cushions that are interchangeable with cloth earcups which can easily be swapped out for a completely different audio experience. Regardless of what type of sound you prefer, both ear options surround the outside of the ear, making them very comfortable to use (sold separately).
PERFECT FOR TRAVEL The SteelSeries Spectrum 7xb is ideal for traveling, as it disassembles into four pieces at each earcup, the headband, and the cord.
HEADSET & HEADPHONE The Spectrum 7xb is specifically designed for Xbox 360 game play. Its full roster of communication features including the unidirectional microphone, independent volume controls, and LiveMix, are fully supported when using your Xbox 360. Though it’s designed as an Xbox-specific headset, the 7xb can also operate as a headphone (meaning audio-in only) with your PC, Mac, or any system that can connect through the RCA /USB cables on the wireless transmitter.
RETRACTABLE MICROPHONE SYSTEM The uni-directional microphone is only compatible with Xbox 360 and can be retracted and hidden in the left ear cup. This signature and durable SteelSeries headset feature allows users to operate the headset in any type of environment, whether in your own home or out in public. The easy and safe mic storage makes traveling worry-free.
This review is from: SteelSeries Spectrum 7XB Xbox 360 Headset
Pros: Outstanding sound from these set of cans; the noise isolation is great. Battery level doesn't affect the quality until the batteries completely die. The wireless functionality is amazingly far, I am able to go to another room with them on and still hear clearly.
Cons: EATS BATTERIES LIKE CRAZY!!! While yes it does have the same quality of sound even at low battery levels, I find myself changing into new batteries every 1.5 days! These are not able to be powered by USB, therefore only way to use them is to have 2AAA Batteries inside at all times.
Comfortable for the first few hours, but if you are a gaming for a long period of time you will find yourself having to massage your ears back to health.
If you choose to use this headset for your computer, the microphone doesn't function at all. If you want to use the headset for the Xbox, you must be corded to your controller.
Advertised as portable...Dismantling saves very little space and there is no included carrying case to support the idea of portability.
Other Thoughts: The LiveMix and the Exact SND features are nice but are honestly useless unless you are one of those AudioPhiles..
Plastic is hard but not really durable in my opinion. I wouldn't throw these around like you would other headsets. Especially for this price tag...
