“IPhone” from the world of gaming headsets. SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless Review

We understand whether these wireless headphones are worth their considerable money
SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless is one of the most expensive wireless gaming headsets. Is it worth the money and for whom is it intended? Let’s figure it out!

Wireless headphones will not surprise anyone, but is there any sense to overpay only for the lack of a cord, given that you will still be sitting exactly in the same chair at the monitor? I’ll tell you right away: if you can afford it, take it without hesitation. SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless is an iPhone 11 Pro from the world of headsets that combines high-quality surround sound and a convenient and durable design, with two batteries (while one is working, the second is charged on the base), as well as compatibility with PC and PS4 over the air and with everything else-via a 3.5-inch connector. Moreover, the connection goes through the base via the 2.4 G channel, so you can simultaneously connect your smartphone via bluetooth.

I’ve been using them for a month now, and so far their only drawback is the size. With my big head, they generally cope, but end-to-end, I would like to have a stock. But wearing them, covering only part of the ear to hear what is happening around (because there is also excellent sound insulation) will already be uncomfortable. For such cases, headsets with an adjustable rim length are more suitable, here it is monolithic and made of an alloy of steel and aluminum, and the “size” can only be changed with an additional Velcro strap made of premium fabric, usually used in the construction of ski goggles.

Neodymium speakers are covered with a very pleasant breathable material, so that the ears do not sweat, and given the fairly light weight of the headset, you can sit without removing it for at least a whole day. Both bowls have many functional buttons and ports.

On the left is a button to turn the microphone (and the microphone conveniently slide out from the housing), wheel volume control, micro USB for charging on the go, mini-USB to connect a 3.5 mm cord to use the headset with any don’t support the format of wireless devices and a 3.5 mm output to connect a second headphone circuit if you play with someone for one console together or watching a movie and don’t want to disturb anyone.

On the right side of the bowl is the bluetooth power button and the headset power button as a whole (it also turns on / stops playback and switches tracks if you are connected to a smartphone). Also, in the right bowl, under a convenient magnetic lid, there is a removable battery-you can handle the replacement with one hand in five seconds, while the charge is enough for the whole day (about 10 hours of continuous operation).

As it is clear from the above, the headset comes with many different cords and a transmitter that connects to a PC or console via USB. It also serves as a base for charging the second battery — a convenient recess on the side for this purpose — and does it in just an hour. Competitors can’t boast of such durability and charging speed. The database also contains many settings, an equalizer and a convenient volume control.

By the way, you can also connect to PC and PS4 simultaneously — one via USB, the other via optical wire. However, to use voyschat, you still have to sacrifice one of the connections (it is unlikely that you will watch something on the second monitor while playing on the main one, communicating with teammates).

By the way, the microphone on the headset is also worthy — recognized by many as the best microphone for games ClearCast perfectly suppresses noise and has a good quality comparable to the quality of the headset from the iPhone.

In terms of sound, SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless will please both ordinary gamers and connoisseurs of high art. Despite being wireless, the headset’s Hi-Res speakers support lossless formats and have a huge range from 10 Hertz to 40 kilohertz (the human ear can hear up to 20 kilohertz in the air, but the rest of the range will be welcomed by the bones of your skull, at least while the headset is on your head). That when listening to music, that when watching movies-the bass is juicy, not rattling, and the top is clean and without distortion.

In games, the headset (not for nothing it is a game) is revealed even steeper-surround sound will not only help you hear the slightest rustle, but also to understand from what specific angle it comes, and we all know that in shooters, the one who focuses primarily on sound gets the advantage.
