As well as controlling items such as the LED lighting, BlasterX Acoustic Engine Pro lets us tweak our sound in a wide range of ways, whether that be simple options such as moving from Stereo to virtual 7.1 or more advanced settings such as enabling Scout mode (designed to help us hear enemies more clearly) or enabling profiles suited to game genres or media types.

Sound BlasterX H7 Review – Conclusion

Back when we reviewed the H5 we noted that as far as build quality and design were concerned it was a very impressive headset. As the H7 uses essentially the same design, the same hold true here. Every part of the device feels quality and we noted no issues with assembly. There is loads of flex in the headband and more than enough movement in the tilt of the cups. It is also a lightweight headset which remains comfortable over time. As before the removable mic is a bonus which makes the H7 ideal for listening to music on the move, as we don’t have a massive mic boom pointing out of our head. Multi-platform compatibility (PC, Xbox, PS4, mobile and tablet) is a real plus too.

For PC users Creative also offer their enhanced audio control panel with additional options over the H5. All the key configuration options we would need are there, plus some which are a bit more fun like the ability to alter our voice sound. The profiles are plentiful and there is a nice range of demo options to let us hear how our changes will impact the experience. We also like that Creative offer the cut down software option for those who want a more simple life.

On the audio quality front we were impressed again. The H7 offers a very balanced sound, not favouring any particular frequency when connected via 3.5mm cable. Using USB the experience is of course significantly different. Experience very much depends on the settings chosen in the app however we found that the built in profiles were all decent.  For gaming we noticed the benefits of Scout and virtual 7.1 modes in placing our competitors and the voice comms were a decent quality according to our teammates. Movie mode was decent, plenty of bass when needed and when we moved to music the H7 handled a wide range of genres with ease. Again a balanced sound with plenty of detail present.

Summary: Great compatibility, excellent sound quality and good build. An impressive headset with excellent configuration options.
