The Arctis 1 Wireless headset is revered by my gamers. This award-winning device is a staple for gaming enthusiasts thanks to its excellent features and affordable price point. Consequently, when an heir is announced, the gaming industry sits up and pays attention! Accordingly, the Arctis Nova 4 plans to snatch the crown from its much-loved predecessor.
A collaboration between SteelSeries and GameStop has been formed for the console versions. As such, you’ll need to shop at GameStop if you live in any North American territory. However, everyone else can use a plethora of online retailers to pick up this device. Moreover, the PC version can be purchased exclusively via the Amazon website. Available for around $119.99, this top-end device aims to capitalise on the midrange price point. However, like its predecessor, the Arctis Nova 4 will not skimp on the bells and whistles.
What are the features of the Arctis Nova 4?
- Nova Acoustic System – Using a fusion of hardware and software (SteelSeries Sonar), the Arctis Nova 4 elevates the gaming and content consumption experience. By using custom-designed High Fidelity drivers it offers unmatched sound purity for truly immersive 360° Spatial Audio.
- Multi-Platform Quantum 2.0 High-Speed Wireless – A Quantum 2.0 Wireless USB-C dongle delivers 2.4 GHz gaming-grade wireless. Furthermore, the included USB-C dongle ensures a lag-free low latency gaming experience for multiple platforms.
- AI-Powered Noise Cancelling Mic – It utilises a powerful ClearCast AI algorithm. The onboard ClearCast Gen2 mic silences background noise to keep comms clean and clear. Moreover, the fully retractable microphone can reduce up to 25dB of ambient noise, perfect for work and play.
- ComfortMAX System – The Arctis Nova 4 features the ComfortMAX system, featuring 4 points of adjustment combined with rotating earcups. The lightweight 262g design and ComfortMAX system provide all-day comfort, whether at home or on the go.
Another market-leading product.
I haven’t got my hands on this device yet. However, I know this will be an impressive headset. With incredible build and sound quality, and the software to enhance every experience, this will not disappoint you. Furthermore, it uses Arctis 1 as a stable foundation for every element. Consequently, you are reassured that this will be feature-packed and excellent value for money.
