If you're wondering what Hall Effect Sticks are, the idea behind them is that they shouldn't be prone to drifting as they use "non-contact magnetic sensors" to ensure durability and reliability.
Here's a good explanation courtesy of HLPlanet:
"Hall effect sensors use the Hall effect phenomenon to detect the position of the joystick. A small magnet is attached to the joystick and a Hall effect sensor is used to measure the voltage generated by the magnetic field. Hall effect sensors are more durable and have a longer lifespan than potentiometer-based joysticks, and they are also more accurate and precise. They are also more resistant to harsh environments."
In addition to the special sticks, the G7 SE Wired Controller also features back button quick latches and a swappable paint-friendly faceplate, which GameSir says "adds an extra layer of individuality to the gaming experience".
