SteelSeries launched their new line of headsets with better battery life

SteelSeries’ new Arctis 7 Plus and 7P Plus wireless headsets have two key improvements over their predecessors: better battery life, going up to 30 hours per charge from 24 hours with three hours of use from a 15-minute fast charge, and USB-C charging. Most other major headset makers have used that connector for years now, but SteelSeries has been oddly slow to adopt it. With previous SteelSeries wireless headsets, you always needed to make sure that an archaic Micro USB cable was never too far away. SteelSeries also touts that both headsets are compatible with the Oculus Quest 2, adding another platform to the long list of devices they can work on wirelessly. That list includes the PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, macOS computers, Windows computers, any USB-C-equipped iPads, and Android. While each headset is essentially the same overall design as before, SteelSeries is charging a $20 premium for these improvements. The Arctis 7 Plus and Arctis 7P Plus will each cost $169.99. The key difference is that the dial along the right edge of the 7P Plus controls the mic sidetone, whereas on the Arctis 7 Plus it adjusts the game and chat audio mix.
