Khoa Tran says:

Alexandru Dumitru says:

Please dont buy this crap headset. It’s only marketing. Crap piss of garbige, i will take my money back. I got Siberia v2 and compare to Arctis 5, Siberia v2 is way more powerfull and have more mid-low. Arctis 5 feels like you got a auto tweeter in your ears. The software is good but dont do nothing. Crap, crap crap omgg so crap that my FLuX is way more good then this shit. Ok the mic si good, better them FLEX KRAKEN v2 Siberia v2, but i dont fucking care. I dont hear myself in game. Its a piss of 20 $ garbige headset. BTW : i got then with a promotion with 55 $ from 130 $ and i want my money back. even 55 $ is expensive for this crap.

I have it, Got it this past Christmas, and now it isn’t working as well… I love it, but the Audio cuts out at times. I will be picking up a new pair at some point hopefully.

I think this channel is a bit underrated.
The reviews are solid, spot on without all the jabber and videos arent too long.
Good solid reviews always, thank you! 🙂

Hi I got a quick question does the RGB lightening work on the xbox one ?

Dekto says:

the problem is, that the Arctis 3 is 80 euro and the Arctis 5 is 120 euro… which one is the better option?

Émilia Tokes says:

Really helpful ! I compared your video with the 7 and yeah, the 5 does sound crisp-er and clearer

Jake Boger says:

Hi BoredatWork, first of all, what a great video. Both informative and engaging. I wanted to ask about this headset as well as two others that I have been considering and that is the Arctis 5 from steelseries, the hyper X cloud II’s from Kingston and the GSP 300’S from Sennheiser. I own a pair of steelseries V3’s that are just starting to get worn out and if possible I would love to have your thoughts on whether or not you would recommend the Arctis 5’s, Hyper X cloud II’s, the Sennheiser GSP 300s (or possibly something else). The ones mentioned are primarily the 3 headsets that I am stuck between buying as they are all right around my $100 benchmark. Thanks!

maxwell hardy says:

awesome well made review. Sold me on the cans

TheFruitsClan says:

the – point, absolutely NO bass in the mic… like NONE… i hate people who uses mics with no low or mid tones

Rolando Vega says:

Is this headset 7.1 surround sound on PS4? The only other gaming headset I know that does that is a few Razer headsets and they do a pretty good job of that.

justin johnson says:

On Xbox the rgb doesn’t work because you have to use the 3.5 jack but other wise your good I was disappointed t tho

Mr.MustacheTako says:

what is everybody’s deal with the mic on this thing!?!? look up mic tests of the turtlebeach p11, the mic is MILES better than the arctis mic. and the p11 headset is only 40 bucks

Cole Robinson says:
