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.
The Arctis 9 is available now globally for $199.99/€199.99/$199.99 at steelseries.com/gaming-headsets/arctis-9.
