Arctis 7P+

Arctis 7P+

Know someone who loves games but hates using the same old decrepit headset? The new Arctis 7P+ is a veritable showstopper, and an excellent option for any gamer. Designed for PlayStation 5 (but compatible with PS4, Switch, PC, Android, USB-C iPads, and more), it's one of our favorite offerings yet. It's wireless, using a multi-platform USB-C dongle that lets you swap effortlessly between systems for low-latency 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity. Charge it up via USB-C, and charge for 15 minutes for a 3 hour power boost. Its fully-charged 30-hour battery life can get players up and through those lengthy gaming sessions, too. But it sounds even better than the battery lasts, with a Discord-certified ClearCast mic and stunning detail with our award-winning Arctis sound. Plus, it's available in black or white.
