Great sound quality Good solid build quality Good clear mic Very comfortable on the ear and head - even after extended wear Good battery life Easy connection Simple & intuitive on-unit controls
Quite simply - Been using it regularly for about a month now and I have no complaints & can't find any flaws in this product - for the price I can't imagine getting a better headset...and in fact is honestly better than other more expensive headsets I have tried.
Would (and have) recommend this headset to anyone. Very happy with my purchase!
it works just fine and the dongle fits ~almost~ perfectly on my Dell G3 3779, but the edge of the dongle overlaps the HDMI port just slightly. i got this because almost every other wireless headset that uses a usb dongle has this big honking gumstick that hangs 2 inches off the side of the device that if i were to put it on a laptop would definitely get snapped off in the port if i wasn't careful and this one's less susceptible to that sort of damage. it does however overlap the hdmi port on my device so it's not quite what i was hoping for. the sound quality is adequate, but nothing to write home about, the construction quality is more durable than its lightweight cheap feel would make you think at first, but i'm firmly convinced it would be half the price or less if it didn't have a Steelseries logo stamped on it.
El audio y micrófono son prácticamente iguales en todos los Arctis, no están cerca de unos buenos audífonos pero para jugar y usar chat de voz van perfecto, el micrófono es muy claro y con un aislamiento decente pero que depende de la posición del mismo micrófono. Estos son un poco más tradicionales ya que no cuentan con ski-band, en lo personal hubiera preferido que la tuvieron porque es mucho más cómodo, son ligeros y se pueden traer mucho rato pero sí se siente la ligera molestia en la parte superior, a diferencia que con la banda elástica. El receptor es muy práctico para usar con celular y Switch, en computadoras no tanto por el ancho, se puede usar el cable adaptador pero es más limpio no tener que poner un cable extra, me hubiera encantado que tuviera los dos tipos, uno más largo y tradicional, pero entiendo que hubiera aumentado el costo. Lo que extraño con respecto a los Arctis 7 es el chatmix, en general sigo usando más los Arctis 7, que obviamente son una mejor gama y más costosos, pero para la portabilidad y consolas los Arctis 1 son más prácticos.
I purchased mine at "very good" condition on Amazon as the box was damaged only. The product itself was perfectly fine.
It was plug and play for me. My motherboard didn't have USB-C port so I used the dongle, didn't bother me as it hangs out in the back. It also works on my Galaxy S10 Plus for sound at least, haven't tried the mic on my phone. I bought this to use as a wireless pair when I roll around in my game room and don't have to worry about yanking the cable. I already own an external mic. The EQ is pretty useful and the quality is superb to me. Bass is there but not overpowering. Comfort wise it starts off clampy but cushioned enough for 3 hours+ use. Battery is good enough for my sessions.
The headset outputs the mic sound to both the game and the headset for some reason. I don't want to hear myself talk. I have reset the mic settings in each game I play on my phone and tablet. It's doesn't work the way headsets work out the box for some reason. Why do you have me talking into a mic that outputs the sound through the headset as well. It's not my friend or teammates mic echoing. When I play solo if I talk to someone nearby or beside it outputs into the headset too. I sure it's the headset not my games malfunctioning. I just got it delivered yesterday and opened it today. What a disappointment. I have used Steelseries products in the past and this is the first time I have had problems. Also the adaptor overheats and the port of the phone or tablet around that area get super hot. I don't want to damage my phones battery that way. Going to have to return.
The range was really bad for wireless, I could not do more then 20feet of line sight (dropping rapidly if there was a wall or anything) I tried various USB ports on my PC even the high powered ones and it made no difference. Bluetooth headphones I had at the same time could go around the house no problem.
For gaming it worked great, 0 noticeable latency between sound and image. Sound quality was good to me. I did not try the included mic since I already have a desk one. They were comfortable.
I also wanted to use them with my tv to watch movies at night but the usb adaptor made it impossible to connect to anything other then a PC or console. I never found a powered usb to stereo adaptor that would allow me inject the tv audio in the dongle while the usb getting the power to transmit.
They are closed back and really isolates you from the sound around, I had a very difficult time speaking with them as I could not hear myself speaking and I was always afraid that I would speak to loud and so spoke to low most the time. Also it REALLY annoyed the wife that I could not hear her speak from across the house and she had to yell (this is mostly a pros but you might end up paying child support ;) )
I know that I could have learned to voice chat with them eventually but I'm used to open back headphones and closed back do make your ears hot after a while. But at the end the poor range really killed it for me and I returned them.
If the range was as good as advertised and it had some sort of adaptor for the TV (even if sold seperatly) I would have kept them.
