Steelseries 7H Cable Shot?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN,
The cable to my 7h, the sound stopped working right out of nowhere. It sounds muffled and distorted. If I unplug the plug halfway it works fine... Why is that, do I need a new one?

The same thing happened with mine. Steelseries sent me an entire replacement headset but after a few weeks the same thing happened with the new one. Seems to be a recurring problem with this product.

I've been doing a lot of looking around for a new headset and one of my top choices is the 7H, and this is one of the things that kept cropping up in my searching for reviews and comparisons of this headset to others. Seems to be a pretty prevalent problem, but from what I read, it's just an issue with the USB cable not with the headset.

Hope all works out for you. smile.gif

Buy something like this http://www.weltbild.ch/3/16859094-1/elektronik/hama-mobile-music-adapter-mini-fuer-micro-usb.html or analogue and something like this http://inspectusa.com/interconnect-cable-35mm-35mm-cbl7-stereo-pi-1154.html or analogue and it will be work again. Sound will be clear as before.
But there is will be no microphone. I dont use it anyway. Webcam's microphone is so much better.
There is inverse with my earphones with this so i wear them backwards.
But this **** for 3$+10$ so much better than bury at the backyard those awesome phones for 100$.
Thank you.
