If you’re in the market for new gaming headphones, SteelSeries is definitely no stranger to the gaming headset scene. In fact the company has recently taken the wraps off its latest series of gaming headsets in the form of the Arctis Pro which come with built-in mixing functionality, allowing gamers to tune the sound to how they like it.
Starting with the basic model USB + RGB, these are a standard pair of gaming headphones. It will feature an RGB-lit ring around the edges that works with SteelSeries’ Prism lighting system. There is also an in-line USB-controlled mixer called ChatMix that lets users control the volume mix between their chat and game audio.
Next up is the GameDAC + RGB which will be similar to the previous model, except that it has been upgraded where it will feature a full outboard sound card. This will allow gamers to playback Hi-Res Audio at 24-bit 96kHz audio. There is even a built-in display that lets users control ChatMix along with a 10-band equalizer.
Last but not least is the Wireless + Bluetooth model which is aimed at those who prefer going cable-free. One of the differences is that this particular model will not feature the GameDAC, but instead the GameDAC has been replaced with a wireless base station that acts as a battery charger. In terms of pricing, the base model is priced at $180, with the GameDAC model priced at $250, while the wireless model will go for $330.
