SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless Gaming Headset Review

SteelSeries has many of the absolute best all-round gaming headsets on the market today, and that’s been true for well over a decade, with the launch of their then extremely popular Siberia headsets, right through to the last few years with their Arctis lineup of products. However, today it’s all about their new flagship, the Arctis Nova Pro Wireless, a truly feature-rich gaming headset that’s sure to appeal to the enthusiast gamers out there. Well, at least for those with deeper pockets and fatter wallets, as at £329.99 MSRP it’s pretty expensive, however, it’s often on sale for around £250, which is a less bitter pill to swallow. I wrote that a week ago, and by the time I completed this review, the price dropped to a very reasonable £219.50!

Worn by Champions

eSports pros love this headset, and the likes of Faker (T1), Rain (FaZe), and James Baldwin (Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS) wear the Arctis Nova Pro Wireless when earning the biggest wins of their lifetimes. Will owning one make you a pro? It’s not bloody likely, but it’s good to know some big names are behind this product.

Features

It’s certainly well equipped, with active noise cancellation and side tone monitoring, premium drivers, an AI-powered noise cancelling microphone for flawless team chat, both 2.4GHz and Bluetooth connectivity so you can play your games but still use your phone for calls, music, discord chat, etc. However, the best feature is the unlimited battery life, well, sort of. It comes with a desktop amp/DAC unit with a battery recharging dock built in. The headset comes with two batteries, so when one gets low, just hot-swap in the new one, put the other back on charge, and you’re ready to rock those extremely long gaming sessions without wires.

  • Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) with hear-through option
  • Premium Hi-Res Capable Neodymium Magnetic Drivers
  • AI-powered noise-cancelling mic with stealth retractable design
  • Unlimited playing time with 2 hot-swap batteries + fast charging
  • Simultaneous 2.4GHz & Bluetooth mixes game & mobile audio
  • Dual USB connections support PC, Mac, PlayStation, Switch, VR, & more
  • 360 Spatial Audio for PC (Sonar Software) and PS5 (Tempest 3D audio)

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
