High-Performance Audio

We challenged everything to give gamers the speakers and microphones they deserve.

  • S1 Speaker Drivers

    S1 Speaker Drivers

    Our goal: create a soundscape that provides a natural and accurate reproduction of all sounds, not just explosions. We started with the same high performance, low-distortion driver from our best-selling $300 flagship headset. After a significant amount of time prototyping and tuning the Arctis soundscape, we created a headset that sounds amazing for all types of games, movies, music & everything else.

  • DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound

    DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound

ClearCast Microphone

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.

Frequently Asked Questions | Go To Our FAQ Page

How is the headband on the Arctis different from other gaming headsets?
The big problem we have seen in competitive headsets is the use of a fixed headband, which focuses a majority of the weight on a single point causing pressure points and discomfort. From our experience - there is nothing as comfortable and stable as suspending ear cups over the head with a textile band. We looked outside of the gaming industry and were heavily inspired by the stretchy, adjustable nature and breath-ability of ski goggles. The Ski Goggle Band automatically contours to every head shape and size, while evenly distributing the weight of the headset across the entire head.
What is the difference between a unidirectional mic and a bidirectional mic?
The Arctis line features a retractable bi-directional microphone that picks up sound in very narrow angles, which perfectly isolates one's voice and eliminates all background noise. To achieve this level of clarity, the position of the mic in relation to the gamer’s mouth is extremely important. We optimized the microphone design so that it pulls out to the exact location where it needs to be positioned at the corner of the mouth. It’s also physically flat to make it obvious which direction it should face.
What microphone options in SteelSeries Engine 3 are unique to Arctis?
There are several microphone options available in SteelSeries Engine 3 for the Arctis ClearCast Mic. Gamers can control the amount of side-tone, personalize their microphones noise reduction, as well as hear preview how their voice sounds with the mic preview.
How do I know the Arctis 7 is the right gaming headset for me?
Great question! Arctis changes everything you know about a gaming headset with completely overhauled audio, a new mic with unmatched clarity, and comfort through materials inspired by athletic clothing. Additionally, Arctis 7 features lag-free wireless audio, 15 hour battery life, a premium steel headband, On-ear Game/Chat audio balance, and DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround. Alternatively, you can use our interactive headset guide, and compare the Arctis 7 with our other gaming headsets here.
What is the Dual Source Audio Transmitter?
The Dual Source Audio Transmitter allows an additional analog audio source to be plugged into the wireless receiver. When the headset is on, the audio plays out of the headset. When you turn the headset off, the audio will automatically switch and play through the other connected device (like your speaker system for instance).
