CREATIVE SOUND BLASTER X H7
The H7s offer more than their price tag suggests. Build quality is premium, with a retro look to the leatherette cups and headband. Controls are on the flexible cable that connects to the gamepad, meaning you’ll have to look away from on-screen gameplay to adjust them – not ideal. Chunky cups give great noise cancellation, with a rich surround experience, and whilst volume level is decent, it does fall short when you want things really loud. The mic is optional, detachable and extremely flexible, so top marks there.
