Originally unveiled as a part of the SteelSeries Cyberpunk Collection, the new headset takes the critically acclaimed Arctis 1 Wireless and adds wireless Xbox connectivity to the first-of-its-kind USB-C dongle
CHICAGO – May 19, 2020 – SteelSeries, the worldwide leader in gaming and esports peripherals, today announces the Arctis 1 Wireless for Xbox, a truly multiplatform wireless gaming headset, powered by an innovative USB-C dongle. The Arctis 1 Wireless for Xbox will also be fully compatible with the Xbox Series X.
The Arctis 1 Wireless for Xbox is a 4-in-1 wireless headset, featuring the same USB-C connectivity as the original Arctis 1 Wireless, but the new dongle has a switch that allows users to swap between Xbox One and other USB-enabled platforms. It uses SteelSeries’ proven lossless 2.4GHz wireless for ultra-low latency connectivity on Xbox, PS4, PC, Switch and Android. It also features the same high-performance speaker drivers as the critically acclaimed Arctis 9X, providing the Arctis signature sound that reveals every detail.
The Arctis 1 Wireless for Xbox also easily doubles as a stylish pair of on-the-go headphones. With a detachable microphone and sleek, low-profile design, gamers can enjoy the award-winning performance of Arctis no matter where they are. The Arctis 1 Wireless for Xbox also uses the same ClearCast microphone for natural-sounding clarity and noise cancellation, but instead of being retractable like the Arctis 3, 5, 7 and 9X, the microphone is detachable, so it can easily transition between a headset and headphones.
The Arctis 1 Wireless for Xbox also forgoes the iconic ski goggle suspension headband in favor of a lower profile solution that is optimized for use on the go, while still boasting excellent comfort with Airweave fabric ear cushions and a steel-reinforced headband for a perfect fit and lasting durability. It also provides additional flexibility with the inclusion of a 3.5mm cable to easily plug into any other devices with a 3.5mm connection.
The Arctis 1 Wireless for Xbox is available now for $109.99 at SteelSeries.com.
