Next Generation of Audio

Arctis Nova 7X

The superior combination of hardware and software offers an unparalleled audio quality, packed with innovative wireless features and multi-platform capability.


Neodymium Magnetic Drivers

Hear everything with an ultra-detailed soundscape of crystal clear highs, pinpoint mids, and deep bass. The custom-designed neodymium magnet drivers ensure the prefect audio experience, whatever game or track you are playing.

Hear bad guys better with X-Ray Hearing, boosting critical sounds like footsteps and reloads just in time to beat them.

Multi-Platform Dual Wireless

Connect wirelessly to Xbox, PC, PlayStation, Switch, or tablet with a USB-C dongle. While gaming on the low-latency 2.4GHz connection, freely mix in Bluetooth audio or call from another device.

Rear view of a person sitting in green themed color room, focused on big screen with mobile on the table and PlayStation console next to tv, which implies multiple connection with all devices.


USB-C

A handy dongle wirelessly connects you to a variety of devices, bringing sublime, immersive audio with ease. USB-A connector is included for more compatibility.


38 Hour Battery Life

Stay in the action all day and all night long with our extensive battery. Be there for your squad.


Fast Charge

Get back into the fray quickly with the USB-C Fast Charge function, bringing 6 hours of use after just 15 minutes.


AI-Powered Noise Cancelling Microphone

No more keyboard clacking and sounds of loud snacking on either end of the call — Sonar Software's ClearCast AI algorithms filter out the worst from both incoming and outgoing audio so you can only hear the best. The broadcast-quality ClearCast Gen 2 mic reduces background noise by up to 25dB baseline on any platform.

ComfortMAX System

Finding the perfect fit is easier than ever, with expanded 4 points of adjustment. Height-adjustable rotating earcups, a stretchy overhead band to minimze stress on your head, and breathable AirWeave Memory Foam cushions work in unison to keep you comfy. Constructed around a PVD-coated steel headband, the all-new design is up to 14% lighter than previous generations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I listen to Bluetooth at the same time as my game?

Yes, the 2.4GHz gaming wireless and the Bluetooth audio mix together, providing tons of flexibility in combining audio sources. Bluetooth can be turned on/off independently using a secondary power button on the earcup and does not need the dongle to connect.

Can my chat hear me talking when I answer a phone call over Bluetooth?

No, when starting a call over Bluetooth the microphone automatically switches over, muting your mic to the chat.

Does the microphone still work when it's retracted?

The microphone will still pickup sound while retracted, but since it's a directional mic, it needs to be extended and in close proximity to your mouth to produce the best quality of sound.

How does the headset connect to the Xbox?

The headset connects wirelessly to the included dongle. This dongle connects to any USB port on the Xbox via the included USB-A cable. The same dongle can be switched from 'Xbox' to 'USB', allowing it to also be used on PC, PlayStation, Switch, Android, and Meta Quest.

Does the Nova 7X Chatmix dial work on both PC and Xbox?

The Chatmix dial works out of the box on Xbox, but for PC, SteelSeries Sonar Software (part of GG) is required for it to integrate with your game. Go to SteelSeries.com/sonar to download.

AI-Powered Noise Cancelling Microphone

No more keyboard clacking and sounds of loud snacking on either end of the call — Sonar Software's ClearCast AI algorithms filter out the worst from both incoming and outgoing audio so you can only hear the best. The broadcast-quality ClearCast Gen 2 mic reduces background noise by up to 25dB baseline on any platform.

ComfortMAX System

Finding the perfect fit is easier than ever, with expanded 4 points of adjustment. Height-adjustable rotating earcups, a stretchy overhead band to minimze stress on your head, and breathable AirWeave Memory Foam cushions work in unison to keep you comfy. Constructed around a PVD-coated steel headband, the all-new design is up to 14% lighter than previous generations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I listen to Bluetooth at the same time as my game?

Yes, the 2.4GHz gaming wireless and the Bluetooth audio mix together, providing tons of flexibility in combining audio sources. Bluetooth can be turned on/off independently using a secondary power button on the earcup and does not need the dongle to connect.

Can my chat hear me talking when I answer a phone call over Bluetooth?

No, when starting a call over Bluetooth the microphone automatically switches over, muting your mic to the chat.

Does the microphone still work when it's retracted?

The microphone will still pickup sound while retracted, but since it's a directional mic, it needs to be extended and in close proximity to your mouth to produce the best quality of sound.

How does the headset connect to the Xbox?

The headset connects wirelessly to the included dongle. This dongle connects to any USB port on the Xbox via the included USB-A cable. The same dongle can be switched from 'Xbox' to 'USB', allowing it to also be used on PC, PlayStation, Switch, Android, and Meta Quest.

Does the Nova 7X Chatmix dial work on both PC and Xbox?

The Chatmix dial works out of the box on Xbox, but for PC, SteelSeries Sonar Software (part of GG) is required for it to integrate with your game. Go to SteelSeries.com/sonar to download.
