EXPLORE THE FEATURES
Inspired by athletics apparel, we invented AirWeave fabric ear cushions that are insanely cool and soft to the touch. Memory foam is wrapped in the breathable, moisture-wicking fabric coated with a special thermoplastic material that provides noise isolation. This breakthrough design keeps you cool and dry while providing the noise blocking needed to focus on the game.
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.
Every gaming headset has been using the wrong microphone. Even us. Until now, nobody ever went back to the beginning and challenged the status quo. All Arctis models feature a bidirectional ClearCast microphone. This re-engineered noise-canceling mic delivers incredibly clear voice communication, focusing on the user’s speech while acoustically eliminating virtually all background noise. ClearCast is setting a new bar in gaming microphones, against which all future headsets will be compared.
