SteelSeries Arctis Nova might be the only gaming headset you need


If you’re someone who takes gaming audio seriously, chances are that you’ve come across SteelSeries before. From the Arctis Pro to the Arctis 9X, we’ve previously seen a range of high-quality gaming headsets. But SteelSeries’ newest headset, the SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro, could be a game-changer.

Available now, the Arctis Nova Pro comes in two main variants: wired, and wireless. However, it’s the wired option that’s caught our eye as SteelSeries is promising that’ll introduce “the Multi-System Connect hub,” which allows for USB switching between multiple devices at the same time. 

According to SteelSeries, you can plug two systems into this hub at once, letting you “seamlessly” swap between a PC, PS4/PS5, Nintendo Switch, or mobile device. All this requires is a button press, no cable swapping is necessary.

That all sounds pretty handy, but Arctis Nova Pro comes with one notable omission: Xbox. There are separate Xbox editions of the headset for Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. Curiously, the wired version claims compatibility with PC, PlayStation, Switch, and mobile but not Xbox. Unfortunately, the wireless option is both more expensive and restrictive, as you can only pick specific Xbox and PlayStation variants, though the latter also works on PC.
