SteelSeries introduces the Arctis 9 Wireless - a new gaming headset for the PC and PlayStation platforms. It offers 2.4GHz wireless operation as well as Bluetooth support so you can accept incoming calls from your phone. According to the firm, you can expect over 20 hours of operation on a single charge. The headset has a MSRP of $199.99 (199.99EUR).
SteelSeries, the worldwide leader in gaming and esports peripherals, today announces the newest member of the award-winning Arctis line – the Arctis 9, a high performance, dual wireless gaming headset for PC and PlayStation. The Arctis 9 will be compatible with the PlayStation 5 at launch.
The Arctis 9 features SteelSeries’ proven ultra-low latency 2.4GHz lossless wireless connection for high fidelity audio, so gamers can enjoy a lag-free gaming experience on both PC and PlayStation. Like the Arctis Pro Wireless and Arctis 9X, the Arctis 9 also features a simultaneous Bluetooth connection to mobile devices for calls, music and VoIP chat while listening to game audio with lossless 2.4GHz clarity.
The Arctis 9 continues the Arctis family tradition by using the same Discord-certified microphone and critically acclaimed signature Arctis soundscape as the rest of the Arctis line. The ClearCast microphone uses a bidirectional design for superior noise cancellation and natural-sounding clarity, while the signature Arctis soundscape emphasizes both subtle and critical in-game sounds, allowing gamers to hear every in-game detail.
The optimized battery of the Arctis 9 provides more than 20 hours of non-stop wireless usage on a single charge. The headset also uses the iconic ski goggle suspension headband for incredible comfort, paired with Airweave fabric ear cushions and a steel-reinforced headband for a perfect fit and lasting durability. The headset also features on-ear controls for ChatMix, so gamers can adjust game and chat audio on-the-fly directly from the headset, and uses DTS Headphone:X v2.0, for incredibly accurate surround sound positional cues on PC.
