SteelSeries Arctis 9X

Best answer: The only place you can purchase the SteelSeries Arctis 9X from right now is SteelSeries or GameStop in the U.S. and Argos in the U.K. Retail partners like Amazon will have inventory and listings available at a later date.

Limited exclusivity in the U.S. and UK

SteelSeries signed a deal with GameStop in the U.S. and Argos in the U.K. for both retail partners to stock the Arctis 9X for a month or so from launch. Should you wish to buy one right now, you'll need to pop down to your local outlet or shop online. Other retailers like Amazon are expected to have listings live once the exclusive deal has come to an end.

You could theoretically buy it directly from the manufacturer but it's currently out of stock.

It's not all bad news, especially if you use a Nectar Card in the U.K. for collecting points since shopping online at Argos will allow you to collect some by purchasing the Arctis 9X. The same goes for GameStop in the U.S., which will enable you to use any reward programs you happen to be subscribed to.

We'll be sure to update you when more information becomes available.

Amazing Arctis audio

I'm never a fan of exclusive deals, but the SteelSeries Arctis 9X is worth considering for Xbox gaming. Not only are you able to enjoy SteelSeries' excellent audio drivers for a fantastic immersive experience, but also the tried and tested ski-band for ultimate comfort.

It truly is that good.
