I came from a turtle beach 800X as new consoles dropped the Optical Port.
And wow the ease to use these headset was just the start, when I put them on my head and realised just how light they are was outstanding! They are so comfortable and so light their is no discomfort and it's quite easy to forget they are on.
The sound is fantastic and compatible with Atmos, And windows Sonic absolutely love my pair
Range is great and allows me to roam around rooms, and I have had great feedback on the quality of the microphone.
For gaming the sound quality is spot on. Gun fire is crisp, and footsteps are heard well in advanced so you wont be caught out.
On the plus side, they are very comfortable and easy to set up and use.
Took a while to be delivered but likely a result of the pandemic.

Als Vergleichsprodukt habe ich noch das Arctis 7 ausprobiert.
Was ich am Artics 1 gut finde - Es besitzt einen USB-C Dongle den man einfach an ein Handy, Nintendo Switch und allen anderen Geräten die über USB-C audiofähig sind, anstecken kann.
Zudem gibt es Adapterkabel auf Klinke und USB.
Die Audioqualität steht dem des Arctis 7 in nichts nach und ist damit sehr gut. Auch konnte ich durch die ganze Wohnung rennen ohne einen Verbindungsabbruch zu haben.
Was mir nicht so gut gefallen hat:
Das Arctis 1 besitzt nur einen normalen Lautstärke Regler, während das Arctis 7 einen zusätzlichen Balance-Regler zwischen Spielsound und Party hat. Gerade in Shootern ist es Gold wert einfach die Umgebungsgeräusche leiser zu stellen.
Weiterhin bin ich sehr empfindlich was langes tragen von Kopfhöhrern angeht. Das Arctis 1 war anfänglich sehr bequem aber schon nach 1-2 Stunden ungemütlich. Hier punktet das Arctis 7 wieder.
Da ich ein Headset primär für lange Sessions an PC/PS4 gesucht habe, ist das Arctis 1 nichts für meine Zwecke. Für jemanden der das Headset auch gern als Handykopfhörer oder Switch-Kopfhörer nutzt und nicht so empfindlich auf langes Tragen reagiert, ist es optimal.
BUILD QUALITY & AESTHETICS
So I looked at Steelseries. Various products and many reviews later I opted for the 9x. For my first steel series headset must say very impressed with it. Build quality is excellent, A metal headband frame, with a velcro adjusted elastic support band (this comes into contact directly with your head). Almost like a ski goggle band. I think these can be swapped out for other designs if you like to change things up.
The ear cups are closed cup design (I'm used to the soundstage of open back) I prefer open back but these are great at reducing sound bleed so if playing in a room with other people it prevents others hearing them. The microweave cushion is very very soft and so comfortable long gaming sessions and no ear-ache from headphones pressing on your ears (you can buy velour or pleather replacements) . I imagine that depends on the size of your ears. But as a whole my ears fit within the ear cups. As per the headband you can change up the design on the outer part of the cups (purchased separately). Closed cup also prevent external sound getting in, not completely but enough. The earcups swivel so they can be laid flat on a table/shelf when packed away, which is a nice design feature.
The battery life states 20 hours which is pretty accurate. I do have quite long gaming sessions at weekends, 3-4 hours during the day and possibly another 5/6 in the evening. So a single charge will hold. However you will need to keep on top of it. The XBXOX dash has an icon on battery along with the controller.
The sound itself, at least to me is very good. I'm no audiophile but for gaming they work well. I use DOLBY ATMOS (sonic works just as well) with them and no complaints. There are 4 presets; Flat, Bass Boost, Smiley, Performance. I tweaked these to my liking, as we all look for something different in sound. A lot of people say the sound is poor on these until they tweak the profiles. In all honesty the 'Smiley setting' is a happy medium. You will however need to plug these into a Laptop or a Computer to adjust EQ within the 'Steelseries Engine software'. If you don't have a computer to do so the smiley setting is the all round setting. Nice clarity and not too muddy bass. I have sensitive ears from years of diving so keep the bass quite neutral. Which is also why I prefer open back headphones.
MICROPHONE & EAR CUP CONTROLS
The Microphone has an adjustable wire neck which coils up into the ear cups. Unlike other gaming sets where you flip the MIC boom up to mute the mic you have a button on this set. The mic has a red LED which illuminates once muted. If I am totally honest the MIC works and is very sensitive. However I think it could do with a foam microphone cover as it can be a little too sensitive. You can adjust this in the Software as well as the side tone. The sidetone allows you to hear yourself through the MIC, this is great so you don't end up shouting whilst using the MIC. As mentioned close cup headphones reduce the sound around you this includes your own voice.
The Headphone volume is a small dial on the right earcup. The layout of the dials is clear and after a few uses you will navigate to them with ease. It is functional and works but from a design point of view, the actual dials could be bigger and less sensitive. More like click on each volume level would be better. Every time I take off the headset it is always at a different volume. So it is easy to move it by accident. A minor gripe but a gripe none the less. The EQ presets are on the right ear cup these are a single click of a button. You get a clear beep in the ear ranging from one to four to indicate the appropriate profile.
The headsets works on the same tech as the XBOX X controller and pairs the same. It also powers the XBOX X on when the headset is powered up. The bluetooth works parallel to it so you can receive calls or listen to music via phone or ipad. This is a feature I didn't think I would use much but have actually really started to use it more with Lockdown. I stream music from my phone whilst training. Works really well, connection wise it is seamless and have no issues at all.
The Chat volume/Game volume ratio is on the left earcup and this is a great feature. You can adjust the balance of the two on the fly. So if you have someone in your chat who is really quiet you can increase the chat bias or vice versa.
Overall I would say this is a really good headset, now and then when powering on the connection can be a little funny. But nothing a headset restart doesn't fix. This isn't all the time maybe one every ten times I use it. The sound quality has a fair bit of depth and can be adjusted to your liking, coupled with Windows sonic or if you wish to buy ATMOS. There isn't much between them really. But they do make a difference and some games specifically support ATMOS. The price point, hmm I would say yeah maybe a little steep but they do have some decent features and wireless is great coupled with bluetooth. If you can pick them up for £150 even better,
Einige schreiben sie haben Probleme mit dem Empfang. Dies kann ich nicht bestätigen. Selbst wenn man mal in die Küche geht (8m mit 2 Wänden) wird er knapp aber bricht nicht sofort ab. So wie bei allen anderen Geräten auch. Mir war es wichtig ein Gerät ohne jegliche weitere Anschlüsse wie Mixamp anschließen zu müssen. Einfach anklicken koppeln fertig. Bisher sehr zufrieden. Update folgt nach längerer Nutzung.
Update 22.10.2019: Habe nun noch ein paar Spielstunden, ca. 40h, hinter mir und muss sagen ich bin immer noch verdammt begeistert. Der Tragekomfort sucht durch das Band seines gleiches. Es sitzt lockerer als alle anderen HS aber man bewegt sich in der Regel nicht. Es sitzt aber fest genug um damit hin und her zu laufen. Ich finde man setzt es auf und fühlt direkt die hochwertige Verarbeitung und den angenehmen Aufsitz.
Akkulaufzeit passt. Denke sind so 17-19 Stunden. Der Sound hat nach so paar Stunden nochmal zugelegt und ist noch intensiver geworden. Die Einstellung zwischen Micro Sound und Selbstverständnis sind genial gelöst und simpel einstellbar. Die Tasten sind alle an der richtigen Stelle und nach ein paar Minuten weiß man welche Taste man drücken muss.
Weiterhin das beste was ich bisher gehört und getragen habe. Gegenüber Astro A40 übrigens deutlich besserer Sound und dank der Einstellungen der verschiedenen Modis kann sich jeder seine eigenen Einstellungen so machen wie er möchte. Bis zu vier Einstellmöglichkeiten gibt es.
Update 22.02.2020: immer noch vollstens zufrieden. Es gab ein paar Versionsupdates die mir aber nicht vom Sound her aufgefallen sind. Ich kann es weiterhin uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Die Funktion mit telefonieren und Musik hören ist auch simpel und genial gelöst. Es passt einfach alles und man vermisst nichts. Mega bequemes Headset für lange Stunden.
Replacement headset has random disconnects from Xbox and sometimes turns itself off completely. Using the SteelSeries software I was able to stop Bluetooth turning on with headset power up which sort of fixed the no mic issue.
They are appalling.
Premium products should not have these problems. £35 you’d put up with it; £150... get f........
Sound good. Especially like the ‘Focus’ EQ setting to really get that sense of immersion in the game environment.
Only headset I’ve tried with Red Dead which accurately reports direction of animal sounds, gun fire.
Simple connection with no drop outs.
Mic is good. Doesn’t pick up ambient sounds, burps... or noises if you dare move in your seat.
If used whilst charging a constant hum is audible to other players but not you.
My ears get hot after an hour or so.
If used with other devices (iPad, phone, PC, etc,) turning the headphones on also turns Xbox on.
Edit - Day three...
There is an annoying static blip as if connection is briefly lost and restored every 15-20 seconds.
Sometimes the mic doesn’t work. Turning headset off and on again ‘fixes’ it but these are a premium product... it shouldn't happen.
The chat/game mixer dial is easily moved by putting headset down. Take a loo break, come back and wonder why no one is speaking to you anymore 😂
These annoyances should not exist on a premium headset especially now the price seems to have shot up £20.
Edit - .....
Having to turn the headset on twice each time for the mic to work is getting tedious.
The sound is great.
But the connection. That is terrible. Used mainly with phone (Huawei Mate 20 Pro). I am getting constant reconnects and beeps from the headset. After about 20 mins all audio is lost. The phone continues playing music but I get nothin. I have to turn the headset off and back on and reconnect the dongle to the phone (neither action alone fixes the issue).
My wired usb c earphones work flawlessly. Haven't tried more than 5 mins with the switch.
Can't speak about the mic, as I never tried it.
Pity as they are excellent when they work.
