Arctis 5:
Arctis 7:

The Arctis 3 gaming headset from SteelSeries sets a new benchmark in affordable gaming headsets. Excellent build quality, fantastic sound quality, and amazing comfort make the Arctis headsets my current favorite. You will get the same great drivers, mic, and build in all of the Arctis headsets, jumping up to the Arctis 5 will give you RGB lighting and DTS Headphone X surround sound. The Arctis 7 is completely wireless. The Arctis 3 is compatible with PC, PS4, Xbox One, Mac, VR, and mobile devices. 7.1 Channel surround sound is available on the PC only using the SteelSeries Engine 3 software.

Can I just plug these in my xbox controller and play

DopeItsJeremey says:

After seeing your review I bought them. After plugging them into my PS4 the volume sucked and my game audio wasn’t loud even at the highest. Nothing I can do to fix it. So it was a waste of money and I shall return them.

Life gaming says:

this sounds really sponserd

Johny Text says:

Corsair ms50 or razer kraken pro v2?

Shaq Raptor says:

I’m sold on it! Nice review man! I’m a nomadic gamer who likes to play on console and PC, but I also like listening to music as I’m a guitarist. I got the HyperX Cloud Stinger, and while it’s great, it’s not 7.1, that and I ran over the jack with my rolling chair! Office chairs just love to eat up chords, don’t they? Anyway keep up the good work and thanks for including the small details such as the software and specs. The line where you said these were basically the 5 and above except without blue-tooth and/or RGB was a very important detail in letting me know these were the right ones!

Oscar Monge says:

Hi! Nice review! I’m looking for PS4 headsets that are under the price range of 70 dollars. I like headsets akin to this one, if that helps. What do you guys recommend?

Cbay27 says:

what about music with this headset, is it good? and comparing with ath m40x which one is better?

Rizky Ramadhan says:

this or kraken pro v2 ?

Warhawk76 says:

Very well done review!

Yumbo Jumbo says:

listening on my arctis 3s!

Alascala says:

The only problem I had with my Arctis 3 was that the metal piece that holds the strap in place popped off after six months. There’s a reason the Arctis 7 and pro have an over the top strap.

Bozer 172 says:

Very well made video!

Cdek Ibalio says:

Is this any good for music listening? I also game but I listen to music most of the time.

wickedout2010 says:

These headphones suck. Bought them from Amazon and the right ear bud didn’t work on my PS4 right out of the box. I don’t recommend these for anyone. Returned them immediately!
