SteelSeries Arctis 3 Bluetooth Headset Unveiled For $130

SteelSeries has introduced a new Arctis gaming headset with a clever trick up its sleeve: the ability to hear audio from both a Bluetooth source and a wired connection at the same time.

The latest entry in the company's Arctis gaming headset range, SteelSeries Arctis 3 is created to offer dual simultaneously connectivity via a standard 3.5mm wired connection and an integrated Bluetooth radio - a first, the company claims. This includes PC, Mac, PlayStation, Xbox, VR, Mobile and perhaps most importantly, the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo Switch Online therefore created a division of audio coming through separate channels, with chat coming through mobile devices and in-game audio from the Switch emanating from the television. Usually you have to choose either one or the other, but the Arctis 3 Bluetooth allows you to do both meaning you can use the wired connection for gaming, while using the Bluetooth connection to take calls, listen to music, or join VoIP chat on their phones.

In an email to HEXUS, Brian Fallon, SteelSeries Audio Category Manager, said "This is the first time that you can simultaneously have wired gaming audio and wireless Bluetooth". 'Bluetooth is incredibly useful for connecting wirelessly to mobile devices for chat and music, but as most gamers know, Bluetooth has too much latency for gaming. It uses a lightweight ski goggle suspension design with "athletics-inspired fabrics", for long term gaming comfort.

The full specifications and purchasing options on the SteelSeries Arctis 3 Bluetooth headphones jump over to the official SteelSeries website by following the link below.

The Arctis 3 Bluetooth is available now at https://steelseries.com/arctisbt for $129.99. Every cable is interchangeable and detachable, with a share jack built-in for multi-player.

Priced at £135 or $130 the Bluetooth headset is equipped with distortion S1 speaker drivers, and ClearCast microphone technology as well as being available in a wide range of different finishes. If you don't need the dual audio connection feature the regular wired Actis 3 is relatively cheap at $79.99.
