The Most Expensive Gaming Headset Ever! SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless Review.

by birtanpublished on September 13, 2020

what's up guys it's mark from silence tech and today we're checking out the most expensive gaming headset probably ever made the SteelSeries arctas pro priced at $249 or 249 UK pounds for the wired version and wait for it three

Hundred and twenty nine dollars or two hundred and ninety nine UK pounds for the wireless pro version over the past seven or eight months you may or may not know that I've been using logitech's artemus spectrum snow as my go-to

Headset for gaming can the artist Pro Wallis persuade me to switch let's face it I wouldn't have ever paid 299 pounds for a gaming headsets so I'm extremely happy and glad that SteelSeries sent this out because in the box you actually

Get a decent amount of KISS and of course the audio quality of this headset will make it or break it anyway let's open her up in the Box there's plenty of cables for using the headsets with a mobile device as well as a PlayStation 4

Pro checking out the DAC is minimalistic design could be considered a little bland although there's a sick OLED screen that relays all of the information you'll ever need the unit doesn't require any software either and

All the features are right there on the DAC which is awesome browsing through the menu you're able to change the EQ settings surround sound chat mix side tone and many many other settings the menu is also extremely easy to navigate

The screen makes changing any setting a breeze and that's not even the best part the way SteelSeries have implemented a charting slot into the side of the DAC is game-changing most wireless headsets need to be plugged in once they start to

Run out of juice with the artist Pro Wireless you never need to plug a cable into the headset ever this works so well because the headset comes with two batteries both rated for 10 hours of continuous use if the battery starts to

Run out you can simply swap it out for a fully charged one plus the battery information is right on that OLED screen the attack not only release how much juice for the battery is in the headsets but for the one

Charging in the DAC as well it's such a fantastic idea although you will have some downtime while you swap the batteries over the wireless range is on another level compared to all the other headsets I've ever used I can walk

Around my house without a single drop or loss of clarity thanks to the receiver being in the dark transmitting a lossless 2.4 gigahertz signal with zero latency that said the headset has randomly disconnected on a couple of

Occasions while I sat back on a lengthy youtube binge luckily that's never happened while gaming with the mic on and I guess the headsets Auto offsetting only uses the microphone to know if you're actually using the headset okay

So we've looked at everything else let's take a look at the actual headset again the design does look a little bland compared to some of the other RGB headsets on the market right now at the top the headband isnt adjustable as such

Instead you're only able to adjust a strap on the left side which doesn't do much the headset certainly isn't a one-size-fits-all the ear cups are padded with a soft memory foam that's comfortable but again nothing really

Feels premium about the headset especially when it costs so much the hinges are made of metal and feel robust and strong they can rotate up to 90 degrees for laying flat on your desk or around your neck and confidence they'll

Be able to take a fair amount of punishments although I wouldn't recommend bending these too much overall the headset is fairly light as well for a wireless power at least coming in at 375 grams with a good amount of buttons

And dials going through them on the left ear cup there's a mute button volume control two USB ports one microUSB port for charging the headset and lastly a 3.5 millimeter jack on the other side is a power button a bluetooth pairing

Button and both are easy to distinguish from another moving on to the audio quality how do these compare to my logitech Artemis spectrum snows while the artists Pro Wireless my Logitech headset out of the water for

Overall sound quality but they're extremely flat and they didn't find they have much base at all that said listening to music has been a real pleasure especially when the headset has two connections allowing me to connect

My phone via bluetooth 4.1 and a 2.4 gigahertz connection simultaneously you're able to take calls play music in the background from your phone while still hearing the audio signal coming from the 2.4 gigahertz wireless

Connection is pretty awesome especially if you want to use discord independently dedicated to just your phone if I compare these to my Sound Blaster x7 dark and AKG 702 headphones the artsy's Pro aren't as good sound

Quality wise although surprisingly close and I never thought I would see the day where I would be able to monitor my audio levels with a gaming headset while making a video okay guys you're now listening to the microphone from the

SteelSeries headset overall I do believe it sounds a little bit nasally compared to a lot of other headsets that I've tried in the past but it does have a very good noise cancellation plus the microphone quality is still

Good enough to rage at markers from PC centric when he gets you killed in pub G rounding off now guys SteelSeries have made possibly one of the greatest headsets ever but when the price is this high it's hard to recommend it to a

Casual gamer maybe an audiophile slash pro gamer even so this is definitely the best all-in-one solution money can buy they've nailed it especially when you take into account that awesome DAC that charges the battery that itself is

A game changer and if you're able to pick this up a little cheaper in the coming months I can highly recommend it my name's mark from silence tek goodbye you
