Superior sound

The rich and detailed sound that the 7H delivers is powered by 50 mm drivers for a superior soundscape. It’s crucial in gaming that sounds are both clear and recognizable. The sounds of footsteps in an FPS game or a notice in a MMORPG game can be the difference between winning and losing. The soundscape for the 7H was precarious to acheive. In order to be both an awesome headset for gaming as well as a powerful headphone for music, applications and VoIP, the 7H was tested and perfected by gaming professionals and musicians to acheive great sound for all ears.
Pull-out Microphone
Retractable microphone

The uni-directional microphone can be retracted and hidden in the left ear cup. This signature SteelSeries headset feature allows users to operate the headset in any type of environment, whether in your own home or out in public, with out feeling ridiculous with a microphone projecting out of their cans.

Earcup
Interchangeable ear cushions

We also understand that it’s important to have the option, especially if it means communcating with your team during a tournament. The 7H is also equipped with interchangeable cloth ear cushions that can easily be swapped out for a completely different, hear-through audio experience. Regardless of what type of sound you prefer, both ear cushions surround the outside of your ear, making them comfortable to use.

Mute
Noise control

It’s no secret that concentration is essential for a great performance. Background noises can be disturbing when you’re trying to aim at an opponent or complete a mission. The SteelSeries 7H headset is the solution you’ve been looking for with its optimized design and noise dampening leather ear cups. Drowning out the noise isn’t the only way to maintain control.

Travel
Perfect for travel

The feature to disassemble the 7H USB into 4 pieces including at each earcup, headband, and the cord, makes it ideal to travel with.

Volume control

The SteelSeries 7H features a durable, double braided, nylon cord with a built-in volume and microphone control. You can simply adjust sound levels manually instead of having to adjust it in your software settings.

ROCCAT KAVE GAMING HEADSET

ROCCAT™ Kave – Solid 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset
360° Surround Storm for your ears

ROCCAT(TM) Tusko

ROCCAT(TM) Tusko


A Desert Eagle isn't worth its fancy name, if you don't know where to aim. Imagine your advantage within the heat of the battle when you exactly hear where your opponents are before you can actually see them. Knowing the position of your enemy is half the frag. Realistic 3D surround sound makes you locate your opponents easily by the noise they generate. The desktop control enables you to adjust to situations quickly with sound and microphone mute buttons and volume control for different channels.

"WHERE IS HE?"
Do you enjoy playing first person shooters with headphones?
Then sure enough you have asked yourself this very question before. But you won't have to, ever again.

Imagine a headphone, not with simulated, but with three very real 40mm speakers arranged at a 12° angle embedded into the earcups, plus 2 additional vibration units. A true advantage, because no matter which game you play, opponents coming from behind and from the side you can find in almost any game.

WITH ROCCAT YOU ALWAYS STAY IN CONTROL
That also goes for the ROCCAT Kave. With the Tip'n'Control Desktop Remote, you receive a tool with extraordinary functions. Designed for maximized comfort and functionality, it can be placed firmly on your desktop. Beside the over-all volume, you can separately control the center, front and rear volume as well as the bass. You can even switch between the sound-profiles.

Thanks to the microphone with mute LED, the times of accidently giving away information are over. Due to the illumination on the micro itself, you can tell whether the micro is muted. Easy as never before. Furthermore, you can switch between the sound-profiles. You can choose between game and movie sound.

Great attention has been paid to convenience while wearing the Kave. The headband contains 3 separately bedded pads, which guarantee an equal weight distribution. The generous earcups are hand-sewn and especially comfortable, featuring external noise cancelling. The Kave is foldable and of compact design, it's safe and easy to carry.

* REAL 5.1 SURROUND SOUND
with speakers aligned at a 12° angle

If you MUST choose from the above two, then the Steelseries is going to be the better choice. I didn't read all the specs, but I assume it has virtual surround sound, whereas the Kave has "real" surround sound. "Real" surround sound headphones are a joke, honestly. If you want more opinions on other headphones, i'm sure the people of this forum would be glad to help.
