SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless is among the best products from this company. Black plastic chassis is a medium-sized, lightweight as well as plain unassuming. With the matte finish as well as no sharp edges, Arctis Pro Wireless is the joy to be able to wear either at the gaming station or when you are out as well as about. The large, as well as plush ear cups, does sit over ears as well as do not press down too tightly.
One of the most exciting physical features on this headset is; the “ski goggles,” which are elastic with style headband, which does help one to be able to get perfect fit without needing to micromanage tedious notches efficiently. One can be able to adjust overall tightness with the Velcro strap, but one can just put this headset on top of the dome as well as allow gravity to be able to do the rest. It is a beautiful thing, and you will be grateful to the manufacturers for coming up with this design.
As has been stated above, the Arctis line does represent some of the most comfortable headsets which are available in the market. Arctis Pro Wireless is no exception since it has been made easy to be able to find the perfect fit. This device sits lightly on the head as well as a tight but also uncomfortably tight- the seal around the ears. You can be able to wear it for many hours of gameplay, commuting as well as just sitting around, listening to the music with no ill effect.
As a result of the Arctis Pro Wireless having so many ports to the transmitters, you can be able to connect it to the gaming device in a wide variety of ways. To begin with, let us talk about quality on PS4 as well as PC since the SteelSeries got these two systems in mind when they were designing these systems. To begin with, while you connect the transmitter to the PC via the USB as well as to PS4 via the optical audio cable, sound quality is similar. Mainly, it has to do with how every system makes process linear PCM sound. Thanks to the transmitter, one can experience 7.1 surround sound on either the platform and adjust equalization options for the Immersion, Performance, entertainment, music, and more.
If you listen to the tracks from various artists as well as bands such as The Rolling Stones, Old Crown Medicine Show, as well as everything, does sound superb. The voices were sonorous; the instruments were crisp as well as the balance between two was like the workmanlike. But this headset doesn’t offer much when it comes to the low range unless you want to pump up the bass. It can be made difficult to be able to hear twanging bass in the Old crow medicine Show’s or even the lowest parts of the choir in Handel’s “Messiah.”
When it comes to the Arctis Pro’s frequency range, it is quite massive, and it does range from 10-40 kHz. It has announced itself as the world’s first hi-res super compatible wireless headset, a feature that does justify the price. Extra quality is prevalent in high end, where the compressed audio tends to the artifact as well as distort. Here, we can hear space between layers of the sound that is beautifully immersive quality.
When it comes to the hi-res capable headsets is the fact that demands of meeting such specs tend to drip down into excellent sound quality into the compressed audio sources. This is true about this handset. Like the other Arctis models, it does not overwhelm with the low end in the show of sheer power but instead does produce a natural sound. This does make it quite tremendous versatile across the games, music as well as films without the need to swap the EQ presets, although such things exist and they are easily accessible via the base station.
SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless can be able to last for up to 10 hours on a single charge that is in line with the experience of many. Since the transmitter is always going to charge the second battery, one can swap between indefinitely. There is also an option to be able to charge via the Micro-USB; hence it is hard to be able to imagine the situation in which you would ultimately be out of juice. One can be able to listen via the 3.5 mm audio jack, regardless of whether the device does have any power.
Features and software
Top-end Pro Wireless does have a lengthy feature set as well as a lot of it has been housed in transmitter base station. The visual design does remain the same since its implementation in Siberia 800, but it is the handy desktop companion all the same. With two controls; one of the buttons as well as the scroll wheel which can be depressed; one can cycle between the EQ presets; change output source, adjust the ChatMix, mic monitoring, the surround sound, volume and the numerous other granular details such as exact brightness of mic mute LED.
In conclusion, If you have ever owned the Arctis headset before, you may be familiar with the Arctis Pro’s basic design that is available in white or even black. Instead of the headband which does sit on top f the skull with the cushioning to be able to minimize discomfort. Contact point across the top of this headset, as well as other Arctis models, is the “ski goggle” elastic band. Band’s tension does keep heavier aluminum headband suspended above the head. It works when in practice, provides fit which does not feel as snug and comfortable as HyperX Cloud but also stayed put in such a way that one forgets you are wearing the headband as time goes by.
