Introducing Arctis Nova 5 Wireless

A new wireless gaming headset joins the Nova line, and a SteelSeries first, a Companion App designed to bring our game-changing audio presets to your consoles.


It's a new day, and another new groundbreaking step in the SteelSeries Nova headset line.

With Arctis Nova 5 Wireless and its Companion App, bring specialized EQ audio presets to your favorite games. Want to hear all the important details in Fortnite, like enemy movement, drink and other consumables, better? Need to identify footsteps when you're camped out in a building in Call of Duty? With over 100 presets on both PlayStation and Xbox, you can have the ultimate audio settings. Created in consultation with esport pros and game developers, you'll be able to switch those audio profiles on the fly, without ever leaving your game, all from the app.

That's just the tip of the headset-berg. Nova 5 Wireless also features Quick-Switch Wireless and our longest battery life on a wireless headset yet (not counting the Infinity Power System on the Nova Pro Wireless, at the least). Let's dive in with an overview of what can you expect with our newest entry.
