The SteelSeries Arctis 1 wired gaming headset is down to $34.99 on Amazon. That's an amazing low price for a headset that's already priced pretty well. It regularly sells for around $50. Today's deal matches the lowest price we've ever seen, a drop that has only happened once before during last year's Black Friday shopping season. This sale probably won't last much longer than that one did, so take advantage of it while you can.
This one on sale today is specifically designed for the Xbox in that it has green coloring on the ear cups. Unfortunately the other versions, like the one for PlayStation, are not on sale. So if you want the blue coloring instead you'll have to wait or pay regular price.
The Arctis 1 is a wired headset, but it's still powered by the excellent SteelSeries sound. The Arctis lineup has a soundstage that features subtle but critical sounds. You want to be able to hear every shot, every footstep, every instance of noise when you're playing games or immersing yourself in the latest movie. The Arctis 1 can provide that with its award-winning audio.
Since you'll most likely be using this while gaming, the headset also has a microphone. It is detachable in case you don't want it or don't need it. It also has ClearCast technology built in that helps reduce the background noise of your game so your teammates can hear you clearly every time. The mic can also work on third-party applications like Discord.
The headset is comfortable and lightweight. It uses an adjustable headband so you can find the perfect fit. Plus, its low-profile design and foldable earcups make it great for travel. Wherever you need a headset, take this one with you.
The Arctis 1 uses a 3.5mm connector, which is the universal headphone jack. That makes it compatible with pretty much everything, including the Xbox, the PlayStation, the Nintendo Switch, your PC or even your mobile device (assuming it somehow has access to a headphone jack).
