One of best gaming headsets with Hi-Res audio.
SteelSeries, a brand known for high-quality gaming peripherals, has a wide range of products on sale for Cyber Monday, including one of their flagship headsets, the 61453 Arctis Pro + GameDAC. Right now you can grab it on sale for just £139 at Amazon UK.
What’s great about the Arctis Pro is the dedicated hardware DAC and headphone amp which transforms any PS5, PS4 or PC into a high-performance audio source by bypassing the low fidelity, poor quality DACs found in typical console controllers, USB headsets, and PC sound cards. This DAC also supports High-Res audio, allowing you to play up to 96 kHz / 24-bit audio with no downsampling.
As for the headset itself, the Arctis Pro is a USB-powered headset (or optical if you have a PlayStation 4), with premium speaker drivers, a Discord-certified bi-directional noise-cancelling microphone, and of course the all-essential RGB lighting. SteelSeries headphones also provide access to DTS virtual surround sound on PC, letting you fully immerse yourself in games and maybe even a competitive edge in first-person shooters.
I personally own this headset, and in my view, the construction of the headset feels solid and well-built while also feeling light and comfortable on my head.
