It’s that time of the year again!  It’s the season of new gadgets, peripherals, and hardware that gamers would love to see as gifts.  Today, I am looking at one such beauty, the Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset.  With it’s sleek new design, new software to get the most sound out of your games, and can be connected up to multiple devices, the Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset may be my new favorite headset for pretty much everything.

Design

The Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset has the basic same design as the H7 edition does, but sports a lot more red trim.  The wiring, the inside of the ear cups, and the cable are all red, compared to the stark blackness of the H7.  The Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset also features a brushed metal look to the ear cups.  The Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset is made up of the same materials as the H7 and is incredibly comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.  The reinforced steel headband and aluminum architecture gives the Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset a very solid feel to it, while still maintaining a light weight that does not wear you down.

The Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset is also designed with a tilt driver, which creates a mini acoustic chamber within the ear cup.  This really allows the Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset to separate sounds in game, to give you a much clearer and crisper sound experience overall.  But what really separates the Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset from the original H7 is what’s inside.

Audio Performance

The Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset has been completely redesigned to give you a much better audio experience then the H7.  Specifically, the new 50mm FullSpectrum drivers, deliver incredible sound.  Rated at 118dB/mW, the drivers delivers clearer, louder, and more accurate sound production than any other headset that I have used before.

The Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset comes with two ways to connect the headset to a device; USB or analog.  In USB mode, the Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset uses the X-Plus Sound Signature, which allows you to customize your profile to match the game you are playing, such as Overwatch, DOTA 2, or Call of Duty.  USB mode also allows you to customize your experience by using the BlasterX Acoustic Engine Pro software.  This software allows you to customize your profiles, provides an equalizer, and even has a voice modulator.  Analog mode is designed to be used with your music devices, such as your phone or Ipod.  The analog setup provides a solid, default profile that works great with music.  You are also able to connect your Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset to your Playstation 4 or Xbox One, making this really the only headset you need.

The detachable microphone has also been redesigned.  The microphone picks up your voice and cancels out surrounding noise, so that you can be clearly heard by everyone on the opposite end.  I used the Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset for our monthly Dungeons and Dragons game online, and was pleased just how well the microphone worked.

Final Thoughts

The Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset is an all-in-one headset that delivers a clear, clean, and crisp auditory experience no matter what you are doing.  With seamless connection between your gaming consoles, audio players, and PC, the Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset can be used for everything.  The newly designed aesthetic gives the Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset a cleaner look than the previous H7 Headset, and the updated and improved drivers and microphone gives the Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset the edge in performance as well.  My only knock on the Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset has nothing to do with the headset itself, but more of the way the Xbox One controller was designed.  Unless you have the Elite controller, you will need to buy the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter to be able to use the Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset on the Xbox One.  Other than that, the Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset is an excellent choice for an all-around headset.  The Sound Blaster X H7 Tournament Edition Headset is available now for $99.
