S1 Speaker Drivers

Gaming audio is not just one type of sound. This is why we engineered Arctis to deliver an amazing audio experience no matter what you play. Every Arctis headset includes the same speaker drivers we use in our $300 flagship headset to create a realistic and detailed sound with ultra-low distortion that rivals headphones that cost triple the price.

ClearCast - The Best Mic In Gaming

We designed the Arctis mic to be as clear as a broadcast-quality microphone. Like a broadcast mic, ClearCast picks up and reproduces an ultra-wide range of high frequencies, making your voice sound remarkably natural.

Lightweight Design

Our goal with Arctis was to create a lightweight headset so comfortable, you'll forget you’re wearing it. We went back to the drawing board and stripped down all the unnecessary components, leaving us with a minimalistic design that’s more efficient at suspending the headset while being as light as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the Arctis 3 Console Edition different from the standard Arctis 3?

The Arctis 3 Console Edition is the exact same headset as the standard Arctis 3 but has been streamlined to include the features that are most important to console gamers. Whereas the standard Arctis 3 features a modular cable with both 4-pole and dual 3.5mm plugs, the Console Edition includes a single 4-pole 3.5mm detachable cable. The Console Edition also does not include Steelseries Engine support or Steelseries 7.1 surround, which are both PC-only features of the standard Arctis 3.

By streamlining the feature set, the Arctis 3 Console Edition is offered at a lower price than the standard Arctis 3.

Which gaming systems is the Arctis 3 Console Edition compatible with?

The Arctis 3 Console Edition includes a 4-pole, 3.5mm cable, making it compatible with all major consoles including PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox ONE (via a controller adapter or newer controller with 3.5mm jack).

Is the microphone on the Arctis 3 Console edition fixed or detachable?

Neither. All Arctis headsets feature the retractable ClearCast microphone. This gives the best of both worlds, meaning that your microphone is always on the headset and won't get lost, but can be almost completely hidden away when not in use.

Can the headset be worn for long gaming sessions without hurting?

Most definitely! The Arctis 3 Console Edition features a very lightweight yet durable design. The innovative ski goggle suspension headband consists of elastic fabric that stretches as you put on the headset, evenly distributing the already low weight across your entire head. The result is no pressure points. The ear cushions are athletics-inspired Airweave fabric that wicks away moisture and keeps your ears cool while still providing the noise isolation that you need.
