SteelSeries Arctis 3 Multi-Platform Gaming Headset Review
This is one of the more practical headsets in our review, and the athletic design is heavily influenced by gamer’s comfort requirements. There are different color options available as well, both black and white. The headband is inspired by ski mask fixtures, and due to the elasticized properties of this material gamers can be assured of a supremely comfortable experience.
The S1 speaker drivers provide ample sound amplification, and they offer superb sound reproduction. Headsets such as these are an option for gamers as comfort and high fidelity are good features for anyone looking to benefit from comfortable pads and exceptional sound quality. In addition to the sound and comfort advantages of owning one of these pairs of headphones is the staggering array of devices that it can be paired with. Some devices include but are not limited to: PC, Playstation, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, VR platforms and mobile phones.
The microphone is ceramic with a proprietary bidirectional design. This means that studio quality voice can be expected on the other end of your conversation, ensuring that your voice will always be clear and understood by your teammates. The SteelSeries also comes packed with features such as a 7.1 Surround Sound and echo cancellation. This is available on Mac, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. VR and mobile also utilize 7.1 Surround Sound and PCs with a Windows 7 Operatin System and above can also benefit from this sound technology.
Volume controls are easily reached on the ear cup housing, volume and microphone muting is just a button press away. This is one of the lightest headphones in our round up, and it has some strong materials that go into its construction. Black and white color examples are available, and each example looks good regardless of whichever one you decide to go with. Personalized controls are also standard within the headset’s driver control, so you can be assured of a customized experience depending on what you are doing, and at a price that you can afford.
