SteelSeries has been in the gaming… game… for a while now and has always put out some frankly underrated products — especially with its headphones. I think the company’s new headset might have a shot to get people talking even more about the brand.

In a press release, the company announced the Arctis Nova 5 gaming headset, its latest headset that it says attempts to hit the sweet spot of “affordable luxury.” I think, with all of the features and compatibility that come with the Nova 5, the company has hit that target well.

Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO, said in a statement that the headset is only part of the story, also pointing to the new companion app that offers over 100 presets that include presets that are tailor-made for a number of popular titles.

Innovation is key, and we use it to unlock the power of imagination and push boundaries to provide gamers with premium audio experiences. The introduction of the Arctis Nova 5 and Companion App, with over 100 audio presets, is literally ‘game-changing’ and provides users with an epic audio advantage for console gaming.

Some of the titles with presets include GTA V, Apex Legends, Battlefield 2042, Minecraft, Overwatch 2, and Rocket League.

In addition to the Nova 5 Companion App, the Arctis Nova 5 includes a ton of features, including Quick Switch Wireless which allows you to switch between games and phone calls, a new high-quality microphone, 60+ hours of battery life, and a USB-C dongle that the company says allows you to use the headset across Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, PC, Meta Quest, and any phones, tablets, or handhelds that have a USB-C port.
