We searched the world to create the most comfortable materials found in gaming.
Ski Goggle Headband
The elastic fabric perfectly contours across your head, evenly distributing the weight, eliminating all pressure points. Easily adjust the tension of the band for a perfect fit and comfort for even the longest gaming sessions.
AIRWEAVE EAR CUSHIONS
Inspired by athletics apparel, we invented AirWeave fabric ear cushions that are insanely cool and soft to the touch. Memory foam is wrapped in the breathable, moisture-wicking fabric coated with a special thermoplastic material that provides noise isolation. This breakthrough design keeps you cool and dry while providing the noise blocking needed to focus on the game.
Our goal with Arctis was to create a lightweight headset so comfortable, you'll forget you’re wearing it. We went back to the drawing board and stripped down all the unnecessary components, leaving us with a minimalistic design that’s more efficient at suspending the headset while being as light as possible.
We challenged everything to give gamers the speakers and microphones they deserve.
S1 Speaker Drivers
Our goal: create a soundscape that provides a natural and accurate reproduction of all sounds, not just explosions. We started with the same high performance, low-distortion driver from our best-selling $300 flagship headset. After a significant amount of time prototyping and tuning the Arctis soundscape, we created a headset that sounds amazing for all types of games, movies, music & everything else.
￼￼DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound
We partnered with DTS Headphone:X to use an entirely new 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.
*DTS Headphone:X Surround Sound available only in Windows
Every gaming headset has been using the wrong microphone. Even us. Until now, nobody ever went back to the beginning and challenged the status quo. All Arctis models feature a bidirectional ClearCast microphone. This re-engineered noise-canceling mic delivers incredibly clear voice communication, focusing on the user’s speech while acoustically eliminating virtually all background noise. ClearCast is setting a new bar in gaming microphones, against which all future headsets will be compared.
Balance and adjust the volume between your game and chat audio.
