Frequently Asked Questions

Is Arctis 5 a USB headset?

The Arctis 5 can be connected both through USB to a PC, Mac, or PS4 or with the included 3.5mm adapter for Xbox, Switch, and mobile devices. Some features such as ChatMix, surround sound, and illumination are only available when connected via USB.

What are the differences between the original Arctis 5 and the 2019 Edition?

We listened to customers and made our amazing gaming headset even better. We made the cable from the ChatMix dial to the headset longer, increased the thickness of the ear cushions for greater comfort, and tweaked the sound for deeper bass output. All Arctis 5s now also include DTS Headphone:X v2.0, the latest surround sound technology from DTS.

How does ChatMix work?

The Arctis 5 appears as two separate audio devices in Windows, one for game and one for chat. You assign Game as the default audio device and then assign Chat in Discord or whichever VoIP client you use. The ChatMix dial then allows you to balance the two audio streams on the fly without ever leaving your game.

Do I need to install software to use the headset?

For basic functionality no, but SteelSeries Engine software unlocks a ton of customization for the headset. The software allows you to personalize the dual-zone RGB illumination, tweak your audio settings, create per-game configurations, and enable DTS Headphone:X v2.0 surround sound.
