SteelSeries has unveiled their Arctis line, a selection of three gaming headsets designed to shatter preconceived notions of what a gaming headset should sound, feel and look like. The Arctis lineup reimagines the gaming headset through a complete overhaul of traditional gaming designs and headset technologies. With Arctis, SteelSeries questioned everything about gaming headsets and challenged the features that have become gaming headset stereotypes. The company is taking a stand and making a promise to gamers that Arctis will always:

  • Deliver great audio quality for gaming, music, movies and more
  • Represent design-forward thinking and timeless style, instead of looking like a bulky toy
  • Include a microphone that delivers exceptionally clear and natural-sounding voice communication
  • Deliver the best technology in every model of the line, regardless of price

“Arctis is not a gaming headset. It is a headset line for gamers,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO. “That is how we approached the new audio line-up – with a fresh perspective as to who our customers really are and what they want. Brands have been distracting gamers for far too long with meaningless specification races and options that encourage spending more in order to get gaming-level quality. Arctis changes that.”

The Best Sound and Microphone in Gaming

Every headset in the Arctis family features SteelSeries’ award-winning speakers, which are also found in their $300 headsets. Powerful, low-distortion speakers combined with 7.1 surround sound deliver total immersion while gaming. All Arctis models feature a reengineered, retractable bi-directional microphone called ClearCast – a SteelSeries exclusive noise-canceling microphone that delivers incredibly clear voice communication, focusing on the user’s speech while acoustically eliminating virtually all background and surrounding noise.

Comfort Without Compromise

SteelSeries questioned everything when developing the Arctis line. The result is a new ski goggle suspension headband and ear cushions with exclusive athletics-inspired AirWeave fabric. Every Arctis headset comes with the new ski goggle suspension design, featuring an adjustable and removable headband that comfortably stretches to fit heads of all shapes and sizes. The patented headband design evenly distributes weight across the top of the head to prevent pressure points, even after prolonged use
Unique Selection

Arctis features three unique headsets with the same outstanding comfort and performance, allowing gamers to choose their model based on additional features. Arctis 3 outperforms all other headsets in its class. The analog wired headset is equipped with 7.1 surround sound and is fully compatible with PC, Mac, Xbox, PlayStation, VR and mobile devices.

The Arctis 5 is an illuminated wired headset with customizable Prism RGB illumination and a USB connector cable with a ChatMix Control dial for quick access to in-game chat volume. Featuring DTS Headphone:X 7.1 digital surround, the Arctis 5 is also multiplatform allowing gamers to switch effortlessly from the USB connection on their PC to a 3.5mm connection for laptops, tablets, mobile gaming listening to music and more.

The lag-free wireless Arctis 7 is also equipped with DTS Headphone:X, volume, mute mic and Chat Mix Control on the headset, and showcases a full-wrap ski-goggle suspension design to further highlight the headband. Its steady, low-latency wireless connectivity is engineered for gaming, while a rechargeable 15-hour battery and a 40ft range elevate the headsets prime wireless features.

The Arctis 3, Arctis 5, and Arctis 7 gaming headsets are now available exclusively at Best Buy for $79.99, $99.99 and $149.99 respectively. For more details about the Arctis or SteelSeries’ entire selection of gaming accessories, visit www.SteelSeries.com.
