I suppose there isn’t a single gamer who hasn’t heard about the epic gaming peripherals brand SteelSeries by now. If you haven’t heard of them then you need to brush up your gaming peripherals knowledge.. It’s the brand who has made some epic mice like SteelSeries Rival 310.

Now SteelSeries is taking a leap with their new audioย  headset: The Arctis Pro

It’s being hyped up with it’s “beyond standards” audio capacity. I’m approaching generally skeptical to this kind of brand promotios but this one actually looks promising. It comes in two types which are “Wired” and “Wireless” as many other headets that other brands offer.

The wired one is capable of supporting 96kHz/24-bit audio – which means that it’s higher than the CD quality. That’s the main sellout strategy of SteelSeries through ths headset. The wireless headset can’t race up with the wireless one due to issues arrising from the need of compression for transmission.

The headset alone is not enough for the high quality sound experience, that’s why it comes with a digital-to-analog converter. Without the DAC it’s not operating on it’s peak performance, but it DEFINETELY promises some badss non-standard quality with the DAC integrated. SteelSeries promises achievment of extended sound quality from PC and PS4 games.

 

To be honest, the audio stuff is sometimes feinting people because the actual experience you get out of a headset or audio system is sometimes not %100 relative to the specs which write on the specifications paper. It aso depends on the human factor. At the end o the day, driver specs aren’t the ultimate reflection of audio gears performance. In my opinion, unless you’re a “sound fethisist”, the usability, practicality and overall sound quality is far more important than specific high-tech sound. But it’s always good to experience the mesmerizing sound waves through high-end gear.

 

As these models are meant for gaming, they have pull-out microphones and LED accents that can glare in different colors. The Arctis Pro can be yours for a price tag at $180 and it will become much more badass with the GameDAC for $250. Wireless goes for the price of $330.

    Nice review. I have been using Steelseries a few years back and I didn’t have any issues at all. I thought of buying this one but went with Razer headset itself. I heard that Artis Pro has some low volume issues and that you had to download an external program to up it up.

    Is that true?

      Thank you for your nice words Alex ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I haven’t had the chance to demonstrate the Artis Pro yet, but I’ve heard a rumour like that. I don’t think that there is a serious issue, but with any new hardware coming out, it requiress some time to troubleshoot issues. I will give the Arcti Pro some tme while I can recommend Corsair Void ๐Ÿ™‚
