I switched to a Razor wired Blackshark V2. After 2 years, the charging got flakey and stopped entirely.
I needed to frequently reset the headphones with the pin-hole in one of the ears, because the charging light stopped blinking.

For the amount of money, to have it die in 2 years is super disappointing.
But I think the reviews are true on sound, good while it lasted.

YMMV on quality.

I have this headset, sound quality is great, the mic is fantastic but I do occasionally get wifi interference with it though. Love the chatmix feature too.

The 7X version is a tad better buy if you are a multi console gamer as it works on Switch, Xbox & PS

FYI SS customer support is atrocious. I took the leap when I found a 9x on sale through Amazon but I had preordered a 7x headset months before and I had to deal with their CS and it was bad. Just something to consider (google other people's experiences, it wasn't an isolated case).

Yeah for a small headset at that.. man I got 4 tires shipped to my aunt in the States.. tires won't be in stock in Canada until the new year (I called the distributor for all of Canada). They were delivered two days later, no charge for shipping and they ended up costing about half what they would in Canada.

I get population density must play some factor in bringing down the cost of shipping in the States.. but these companies must be losing money on shipping to compete with Amazon in the States and just not care about the Canadian market because it's such a small percentage of their business

Agreed. Good product, terrible company.

I tried to order the 7X at the start of the year, took several months, they never could deliver the product and weren't in a rush to refund my money and I had tried to order twice.

Bought a headset locally and if the first order I placed didn't show up.

Even after a free headset I wouldn't buy directly from them.

All rechargable accessories become trash after about 2 years because the Li-Ion battery degrades after about 500 full charges.

I had to contact Visa to get my account refunded, I still never ended up hearing from them directly.

They don't become trash after 2 years. A battery might only be rated for 500 full cycles....which is charging from 0 to 100. If you don't discharge completely, it counts as a partial cycle. 50 to 100 charge is a half cycle, so it would be good for 1000 days, or 3 years if you did half cycles every day.
And even then don't completely die after the rated number of cycles, after the rated cycles, the battery will still have capacity. Usually manufacturers will state something like: if you do 500 full cycles, the battery will still have 60% of its original capacity.

That's in the best case scenario.

Much of the time, the battery swells up between year 2 to 3.

Usually this breaks the surrounding casing and greatly reduces charge.

Pretty much happened to 70% of our work laptops and phones that were used close to 3 years.

Work machines take far more abuse than a typical home one, it’s why they often swap em out after a couple years and they go to the off lease laptop stores.

I don't know what you are doing to your phones or laptops but I've never had a battery swell up and lose a lot of capacity after 2 or 3 years. I've pulled cells from old phones, mice, keyboards, headphones, cameras, after years (because I wanted to recycle them) and they looked fine and still had a lot of their capacity

Heat is the number one killer of battery capacity. My friend mounted his phone on top of the dash in direct sunlight and I touched it once while it was mounted there and it was so hot I couldn't hold it comfortably, and that phone was plugged in and sitting at 100%. That is a recipe to kill your battery much faster than full charge cycles.

Maybe for some infrequent individuals.

For much of the current adult generation, people use their personal laptops more often and for more computing intensive purposes like gaming, video chats, youtube, etc, which generates more heat than typical productivity apps.

The typical workload on most office worker's laptops are MS Word and Outlook which the CPU mostly sits idle.
