SteelSeries has today announced two brand new pro headsets. The SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless is a wireless gaming headset with a DAC that works with both Xbox Series X|S, PS5/PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch and also has Bluetooth connectivity for your phone. It also has Active Noise Cancelling to block out external noise whilst gaming and it has two batteries so that one can always be charging in your DAC. Each battery also lasts 22 hours, so you’ll literally never run out. The Arctis Nova Pro Wireless will set you back $650 when it launches in Australia, but you can grab it for $513 when you purchase from the official SteelSeries headset using code DUKE.
SteelSeries also announced the Arctis Nova Pro which is a wired version of the same headset without Active Noise Cancelling and obviously it doesn’t have two batteries/Bluetooth, but it does have the same great audio quality and can also be used with all consoles as well as PC. The Arctis Nova Pro will set you back $499 when it launches in Australia, but it’s currently available from the SteelSeries website for $389 when using code DUKE.
It’s worth mentioning that there’s two versions of each, an Xbox specific version and a standard version. If you’ve got both a PS5/PS4 as well as an Xbox Series X, you’ll want the Xbox branded version as only this model can be used with both the Xbox and PlayStation at once, whilst the standard one can be connected to the PS5/PS4/Switch/PC, but not an Xbox. It’s very hard to find a headset that works with literally any and every console in your cabinet, let alone one that lets you connect two at once and easily go between the two, but this does it and does it well.
