SteelSeries partnered with DTS Headphone: X to use an algorithm specifically designed for Arctis. DTS Headphone: X goes above and beyond any other surround sound solution. You can perfectly identify positional audio, including enemy location and environmental cues. The Arctis mic was designed to be as clear as a broadcast-quality microphone. Like a broadcast mic, ClearCast picks up and reproduces an ultra-wide range of high frequencies, making your voice sound remarkably natural.
The goal with Arctis was to create a lightweight headset so comfortable, you'll forget you're wearing it. All the unnecessary components were stripped down, leaving you with a minimalistic design that's more efficient at suspending the headset while being light. Inspired by fabrics found in athletic clothing, the incredibly soft AirWeave ear cushions keep you cool, dry, and comfy for hours of gaming.
