    I think it is a comfortable headset with good sound and mic

    Michaël van der Griendt | 9 May 2017 | Color: Black | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • It is very comfortable on your head because of the band and the soft ear pads
    • Very good sound, you can still adjust in the engine whether your 7.1 surround or not
    • A very good microphone for a gaming headset
    • Looks very nice and clean. It also feels luxurious and you can make it to your own style.
    • the ear pads are good for big ears (because I have big ears and fit well)
    • You need to bother with driver to be able to do some option like 7.1 surround
    • The headset is very large (not a problem for me, but for some it could be a problem)

    In the beginning I was very happy with the headset, when I put it on my head it felt super comfortable without pressure on your head and I did not expect that from a steelseries headset, I had seen it in other reviews but hadn't expected it to be so comfortable as steelseries sibreria wasn't that comfortable on your head at all. Only the headset is a bit big.

    When I went to connect it to my computer you had to make some effort, create an account on steelseries itself and fill in a code that comes with it, I already had the engine since I use more products from steelseries, but if you don't you also have to download that, in the program you can adjust whether or not you want 7.1 surround etc.

    Once that was done I tested sound and it was very good sound quality, but that's what steelseries is known for. The Microphone is very good for gaming and in my opinion is also one of the best gaming headset microphones.

    If you don't like soft ear pads, you can always learn to get it and you can also buy another headband so you can make the headset to your style.

    It is very convenient that it comes with dual 3.5mm extension cable and a 4-pole 3.5mm adapter, one is in my computer and the other is in my controller for the console.

    I hope I've informed you enough about my experience and that it can help your choices about whether or not to make it.

    Top quality and great design
    • Top sound while gaming
    • Microphone top quality
    • Is comfortable, even if you are gaming for a long time, you will not suffer from it
    • Design is beautifully finished
    • Very handy that you can push your microphone in, that keeps it good
    • No

    My experience with it is that it is great comfortable good sound you can easily adjust your sound from behind and if you suddenly someone comes in while gaming and you want to mute yourself only 1 button on the back of your headset very easy I recommend this headset to you and is not too expensive.

    This headset is at home in all markets - TOP product
    • Sound quality
    • Feels very sturdy and quality
    • Very handy microphone
    • Spare part for pc/ps4(or xbox)
    • The eye wants something too.. and he's nice lookin'

    I've been looking for a headset for my PS4 for a long time - one that I'd like to use on my laptop if I can. Target price was max. €100 and the eye wants something too, so it must also look trendy. I find all this and so much more in this Steelseries Arctis 3. The microphone slides smoothly into the headset for those moments when you want to go solo, and don't want to hear screaming teenagers in the game lobby. The control buttons are located at the back of the left earpiece and are very user-friendly. No this or that - just the essentials.

    Recommended!

    Excellent headset!
    • design
    • Audio and mic work on Mac
    • Pure sound mic
    • Not firm on head

    The first experience when setting up the headset was that I couldn't make the ski goggles small enough to allow the headset to fit optimally on my head. The headphones are quite loose. (It does not strain too hard, even after a few hours of gaming)

    The 7.1 surround software does not work with my Macbook, but the audio and the mic do work via the single jack. Registering on the site goes very smoothly.

    Furthermore, the sound of the microphone is very good and pure, you do not hear any peripheral and ambient noises. The sound is good and adjustable on the headphone shell itself.

    I have become a sick Fortnite Pro because of this headset.
    • Good sound damping from the outside through the mic
    • Also nice as regular headphones with the mobile
