Review of the SteelSeries Arctis Nova 7P headset: comfortable and high-quality.

Having one of the top PS5 headsets will elevate your gaming experience, despite the fact that it may not have occurred to you at first. I frequently relied on the TV’s built-in speakers to enjoy the features of the PS5, but after using the SteelSeries Arctis Nova 7P throughout my gaming sessions, I don’t think I will ever play without a headset ever more.

Although the SteelSeries Arctis Nova 7P headset is primarily intended to be used with the PS5, anyone who prefers to utilise their PC as their preferred platform should also take this headset into consideration. It functions flawlessly, offering the same high-quality audio that PS5 users are accustomed to, with the built-in compatibility with PS5’s existing audio capabilities being the only exception.

There are several reasons why the SteelSeries Arctis Nova 7P headset is well worth adding to your setup, including its comprehensive audio profile spanning every high to low note, its comfort, and its crystal-clear microphone.

Prices of the Nova 7P headset

Several stores are currently offering the SteelSeries Arctis Nova 7P for $179.99 / £174.99 (about AU$349). While customers in the US can purchase the headset via SteelSeries or merchants like Amazon and Best Buy, those in the UK can do so through the manufacturer’s website or retailers like Argos and Amazon.

The SteelSeries Arctis Nova 7P costs a tiny bit less than rival high-end gaming headsets like Razer’s Blackshark v2 Pro, which is now on sale for $199.99 / £179.99, despite the fact that it doesn’t compromise on any of the quality. Another excellent option in this price category is the Turtle Beach Stealth Pro headset, which costs a stunning $329 / £279. However, as we noted in our review, the Turtle Beach Stealth Pro headset’s microphone is where it falls short of the Arctis Nova 7P.

The Arctis Nova 7P is an excellent headset right out of the box. Its construction is highly robust and has a solid, metal form factor to help it feel high-end. For added comfort, it has a deep blue colored headband over the top, and the ear cups are constructed of a delightfully soft material. With the exception of its blue band, the product is entirely white and is designed to resemble the PS5.

In terms of functionality, the buttons are kept quite straightforward. On the right cup, you’ll find the power button and the Bluetooth button you’ll need to pair the headset with your device. On the left cup, you’ll find the mic mute button and a volume wheel for rapid in-game adjustments. Most of the time, these buttons are simple to press and placed in a way that is pleasant to press while wearing the headset.

The proximity of the Bluetooth and Power buttons, which occasionally leads to me pushing the wrong button when attempting to switch on the headset and wondering why it’s taking so long to connect, is one issue I would have. It’s a really simple setup for a high-end headset and having access to EQ presets on the actual device would have been helpful.

The SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro headset’s comfort during extended gaming sessions is a noteworthy aspect of its design. I frequently experience a dull ache or a feeling of abrasion behind my ears where the headset cups have rested for too long when wearing glasses while watching television, but this issue is completely avoided with the Arctis Nova 7P thanks to its soft cups.

Additionally, the microphone is tucked away in the left cup of the headset, so you won’t have to worry about it getting in the way while you’re just playing games alone. But when you do need it, it’s really easy to pull out and relocate to the right position because the mic arm is flexible rather being rigid and fixed in one place.

Performance and battery life of the Steelseries Arctis Nova 7P

Considering that it is a higher-end SteelSeries headset, the performance is excellent. With the bundled USB dongle, connecting to both a PC and a PS5 is straightforward. Even at low volume levels, you can clearly hear even the most delicate sound effects or noises in a game thanks to the extraordinarily clear sound profile. It will also appeal to people who enjoy a robust bass profile.

360 spatial audio is supported by the headset, making in-game listening far more engaging and immersive. Tempest 3D Audio on the PS5 is also compatible with the Arctis Nova 7P.

You will be able to hear even the subtlest sounds in games or the lowest notes in music thanks to the bespoke high-fidelity drivers inside the headset. This is perfect for any games, such as the best FPS, where you have to keep a close ear out for auditory clues like player footfall or far-off gunfire to indicate where your opponent is hiding.

Anyone who wants to get the most out of the greatest multiplayer PC games will find that this high calibre performance extends to the microphone. You can adjust noise cancelling’s efficacy to block out background noises thanks to AI-powered noise cancellation. The microphone continuously provides quality output over speech channels and calls so your teammates can always hear you well.

The SteelSeries Arctis Nova 7P is advertised as having a whopping 38 hours of battery life, and after taking it out of the package and using it for roughly three weeks on and off, I’ve only had to charge it once, so I can confidently say that claim is accurate.

Since you don’t want to have to worry about charging mid-game and you can use the headset for hours on end without being tethered to a charging cord, battery life is a crucial factor when it comes to the best wireless gaming headsets. The Arctis Nova 7P’s battery life was a comfort for me as someone who frequently forgets to charge their technology when I was hopping in and out of online games and Discord calls and simply did not have to deal with a depleting battery light or noise indication.

My overall experience with the SteelSeries Arctis Nova 7P has raised my bar for what I expect from gaming headsets to a whole new level. I would highly suggest this product to anyone searching for a reliable headset that is a guaranteed doorway to more immersive gaming and clearer communication for co-op sessions, even though it still has some drawbacks, such as the button placement.
