  1. Willy y.

    I’ve tried a lot of different headset/IEMs and none has sound so good. decently comfortable, bypasses a cheap computer audio driver making the sound really good and clear also eq very customizable on the software. music of all genre sounds great, I can hear footsteps crystal clear and pinpoint the exact location of enemies like I’m cheating.

  2. Jim G

    Not perfect but darn good. Really comfortable. The interface for the DAC is clunky and annoying.

  3. Tim

    Pros: These sound great in games. Very detailed and immersive. The microphone is excellent, I was told I sound super crisp like I was using a condenser mic. Controls in Sonar are fairly robust aside from the noise suppression and noise gate.

    Cons: Music sounds decent, but the frequency response at the high end gets a bit weird and I could get the sound just where I wanted it. You can’t get the 96 KHz 24 bit audio if you are using Sonar. Sonar requires a login for all the features. Only includes one type of earcups even though I don’t have issues with them.

    It would be nice to have some extra features like Bluetooth support on the DAC at this price point. What you get is really good but the price still seems high, all things considered.

    Buenisima calidad de sonido, el sonido del microfono es aceptable, pero no de los mejores, pero donde realmente se aprovechan son con la aplicacion GG de steelseries, que se puede utilizar gratis para otros dispositivos. Los ecualizadores predeterminados son buenos, pero al ir ajustando las frecuencias encuentras el sonido perfecto, y con el DAC aumenta el volumen sin hacerlo molesto, simplemente muy buenos, igual los uso en mi celular y, no se les saca el mismo provecho, pero son igual decentes, pero mejores solo para PC.

    I bought this headset as an upgrade from some hyper x soundclouds. First of all, I enjoy the fact that I don’t have to have the headset at 100% to actually here the game like a lot of high ends headsets. Moreover, if you do buy this headset and are pc user, definitely download the sonar app. Not only does this enable you to switch between pre-adjusted audio setting depending on the game, but also allows changes for how you want your microphone output to soundlike. I’m no audiophile, but I can genuinely say this is a great headset, with many features that you aren’t probably going to use. Finally, the sonar surround sound feature does take some getting used to if, it is just a different type of experience (definitely not in a bad way!)

    Setting the DAC to 96khz and 24bit in Windows 10 audio settings, wow what a difference with everything (music, games, video, etc.)… They also ditched their gen 1 proprietary headset cable for a 3.5mm, while also ditching the poorly designed micro-usb for the far superior usb-c… Got it on sale and would highly recommend for the price.
    P.S. Also make sure the 3.5mm cable is inserted in the headset or DAC the correct way, follow instruction manual… I failed to do this and it worked but the microphone did not work until I reversed the cable… Hope this helps somebody…

    Replaced Astro A40 TR + Mixamp with these. Very noticeable improvement to sound quality in Warzone and other games. Music was decent if you switched profiles but I wish there was an easier way to switch profiles in the software, it’s a bit tedious.

  8. AlexM

    I had got these headphones for COD and I can hear footsteps all the way across the map… these headphones are a really good investment if you wanna take gaming a lot more seriously… and not only that the mic sounds amazing as what my teammates told me I sound more like myself

    You guys gotta buy it

  9. Max Parenti

    Upgrading from a cheap pair of wired steelseries headphones, you can 100% notice a difference in build quality and sound quality. I do like the leather ear cups as well but, I was a big fan of the air weave ear cups from previous generations. But, these are still amazing headphones!

  10. Giulia

    this headset is completely worth it, you pay for arguably the best headset on the market right now, the only complaint is the mic quality could definitely be better, however the audio is fantastic, the game Dac really does bring out the full potential of the headset, I f your speculation about it is bad, I can assure after 3 weeks of use that it’s actually a great buy.

    Los audífonos suenan bien pero siento que no hacen bien el espaciado entre los sonidos y no sabes distinguir direcciones, les falta bajo y el amplificador puede solucionar estos problemitas pero para el precio hay mejores cosas aunque no son mala compra, en comodidad apretaban mucho la cabeza pero creo que con el tiempo se irán aflojando.

  12. Apple Frenzy

    I bought this product on impulse as i was originally going to buy a cheaper alternative. Once it got here i expected it to be pretty good, it astounded me with the amount of audio customization and clarity these give, I dont use the microphone but from what i can tell its a pretty ok microphone quality, nothing to good but nothing horrible either. The only thing im unhappy about is the pleather ear pads, they shift around easily and sometimes rotate when moved slightly, the inside of the earpad looks and feels like it is about to peel of, and i feel as if you would to scratch or rub it a bit to hard it would peel the entire thing of. the outside is nothing out of the ordinary, although it is clear it will eventually peel after a bit, might buy replacements for the ear cups down the line. But this headset is a great comfortable option even with the mediocre ear pads, although the plastic feels a bit to lightweight in certain parts, its not bad enough to warrant not buying it. I just wish it had a better plastic quality. Also forgot to mention that for music its quite ok, and for gaming its absolutely amazing, you can pinpoint an enemys location just by sound queues, its saved me multiple times in valorant.

    The Arctis Nova Pro’s are definitely a treat for people looking for higher quality audio on PC.

    Off the bat, these headset’s sound and feel are amazing. Much better than 99% of gaming headphones commonly used.

    In terms of audio being 10/10.

    These bad boys hit a 10hz-40,000kHz frequency (99% of gaming headphones on average are 20hz-20,000kHz which is double the quality on both frequency ranges) and if connected to pc, can be maximized to 96KHz/24bit audio resolution which is the beginning standard to Hi Res audio. These headsets have great sounding highs and lows with more of a focus on highs. These headset’s can be turned up REALLY loud.
    My only complaint is I would wish the lows (bass) were much stronger feeling.

    Comfort is 9/10
    The headband and earcups are very lightweight so it sits on your head weightless and perfectly. The earcups definitely block out most of the outside sound when audio is playing. Only complaint is the headset’s material feels rather cheap since it’s mostly plastic.

    Features is 10/10

    You use a DAC that lets you control everything. You have custom EQ settings, Chatmix volume slider (can be used in PC with app), and mic settings like sidetone sensitivity as well as mic volume.

    Highly recommend for sure.
