Price check: $249.99 at Best Buy
✅Pros: Clear highs, mids, and lows. Comfortable and durable industrial design. Quad DAC on PC.
❌Cons: Much more expensive than other wireless headsets
That’s a great deal for a premium headset that, while compatible with Xbox, also provides 24-bit 96kHz audio for PC.
In fact, the SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro is so packed with features our editor Jez Corden said the wireless version was the best headset he had ever used in his review.
This is the much more reasonably priced wired version of the same headset, and it regularly receives rave reviews. Being wired gives this headset a performance advantage over its wireless counterpart, delivering much higher quality and refined audio, especially when used with a PC.
The Arctis Nova Pro is certainly one of the most expensive wired headsets out there for Xbox and PC gaming, but it's aimed at the premium audiophile market and delivers crisp and balanced audio in its sleek and style casing.
The microphone also performs exceptionally well with noise cancellation and sidetone control. If you want a headset that will impress in the sound department and don't mind being wired in, this headset is a quality choice, more so at the $200 price point.
Why we like this deal
I prefer a headset that can excel in both gaming and general music audio, so this deal is attractive as it’s not a typical gaming headset. It performs better than expected for a headset aimed at Xbox gamers and works flawlessly with other devices.
I often enjoy listening to both my game audio and my Spotify playlist, so I want a headset that will amaze me in both aspects and have some cross-compatibility. This is an expensive wired headset, but that means I don’t have to worry about charging or connection issues, so it’s a winner for me, and I believe that audio quality is a good place to invest money when it comes to gaming accessories.
