Processing and first impression:
The first thing I noticed about the speaker was its exceptionally good workmanship. The headset consists of a sturdy steel head strap with PVD coating and the ComfortMAX System for an adjustable fit. The ear cups (over the ear) are made of plastic, lined with super soft foam and have a sleek design with the Steelseries logo (replaceable). The microphone is flexibly adjustable and can be lowered into the headset if necessary.
Sound and technology:
But the most important thing in a gaming headset is, of course, the sound. Here this got me Arctic Nova 7 Really blown away. High-fidelity drivers deliver clear, powerful sound with crystal clear highs, precise mids, and rich bass. Thanks to the Sonar Audio suite of software from Steel Series You can also customize the sound with a parametric equalizer and take advantage of presets developed by esports professionals. But the best thing is the 360-degree spatial audio, which gives you the feeling that you’re in the middle of a game. With this feature, you can locate opponents exactly and react quickly. Spatial Audio also works with Tempest 3D Audio for PS5 or Microsoft Spatial Sound on PC and Xbox. The headphone microphone is also higher.
