If you’re like me, you use your headphones a lot. Whether it’s for listening to music or podcasts while I work, or playing games on my computer, I rely on them daily. That’s why it’s important to have a set of headphones that can last all day long, and the Steelseries Arctis 7 headphones are perfect for that. But what happens when the battery runs out? In this blog post, I’ll show you how to charge the Steelseries Arctis 7 headphones so you don’t have to worry about running out of power.
Recharging the Steelseries Arctis 7 headphones requires a USB cable. Make sure you have one on hand before beginning your order process. While most devices come with at least one USB cable, it’s unlikely that they’ll be more than 6 feet in length, which won’t reach across a room. You can either purchase another cable from the manufacturer or from a third-party vendor, or you can use another cable and just replace the head.
Charge your Steelseries Arctis 7 headphones by plugging it into the USB port on your computer. If you have a wall outlet available, plug it in there instead of using your computer. The LED indicator light will turn off when the device is fully charged. Depending on how much battery life was left in your headphones, it might take between one and two hours to get a full charge.
If you’re not planning on using your Steelseries Arctis 7 headphones again for a while, turn them off so they conserve energy. If you don’t use your headphones for several days, it’s best to turn them off so they don’t drain while you aren’t using them.
You will need to collect the following materials in order to charge your steelseries arctis 7 headphone:
compatible micro USB cable (note: this is not what you would normally use to sync and/or charge your phone)
Step 1. Connect one end of the micro USB cable into the USB port on the back of the transmitter, and the other end into a USB power source such as a wall outlet.
Step 2. Now you need to hold the mute button for 5 seconds, once you see both green LEDs light up it should be in pairing mode, which means its ready to be paired with your phone.
Step 3. Open your Bluetooth settings on your phone, and scan for new devices, you should see “steelseries audio” pop up.
Step 4. Select this device after it pops up in order to pair it with the transmitter. Note: you will need to do this every time you plug the cable into the transmitter as well as when turning the transmitter on.
Step 5. Once your device is paired, open up the SteelSeries Engine 3 application and select “Arctis 7” under devices. You can also use this option to configure all of the options for the Arctis 7 such as custom EQ settings etc.
Step 6. Now you should see a battery bar at the top, along with other options. Depending on how low your batteries are, you can select which profile to use. You can choose between the default 7 or the Bass boost 10, I have found that this doesn’t affect sound quality however it does increase bass levels slightly.
Step 7. If you want to adjust the level for this profile, double tap on the Steelseries logo at the top left. You will see options for Volume in this menu allowing you to turn up or down the volume without having to go in your device settings.
Step 8. To turn off Bluetooth pairing with your phone, hold the power button for 5 seconds. Once you see both green lights go off, it should no longer be connected to your phone via Bluetooth.
Step 9. To turn on your Steelseries Arctis 7 headphones, plug in the USB cable to your transmitter and then press the power button on the back of the transmitter. If you have your headphones turned off, both green lights on the transmitter will blink until it pairs with the headphones.
Step 10. Once they are paired, turn your Arctis 7’s on by pressing the power button on the left headphone, you should see a setting that says “Connecting…” this means that it is now paired to the transmitter.
Step 11. To use your Arctis 7’s now, simply unplug the USB cable from the transmitter and plug it into the 3.5mm headphone jack on your computer or laptop.
Note: You can also turn off Bluetooth pairing with your phone if you want by holding down the power button for 5 seconds, and once you see both green lights go off it should no longer be connected to your phone via Bluetooth.
Now that you know how to charge the Steelseries Arctis 7 headphones, you can rest assured that you’ll never run out of power in the middle of a busy day. Whether you’re at work or on your way to a weekend getaway, these headphones will keep you entertained for hours on end. Thanks for reading!
