The folks at SteelSeries have decided to take on the norm, and have released three new multi-platform gaming headsets in their Arctis product lineup.  Each of the models (Arctis 3, 5 & 7) will share some common traits but all three will have some unique characteristics.  Based on the release, it appears that SteelSeries is trying to focus on the comfort, microphone quality and audio performance, which are probably the three most important aspects of any gaming headset.

Per Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO, the “Arctis is not a gaming headset. It is a headset line for gamers.  That is how we approached the new audio line-up – with a fresh perspective as to who our customers really are and what they want. Brands have been distracting gamers for far too long with meaningless specification races and options that encourage spending more in order to get gaming-level quality. Arctis changes that.”

The key appears that all three models will feature the same speakers as SteelSeries flagship $300 headset along with the features below:

If you are interested, the Arctis lineup is available exclusively at Best Buy for $79.99, $99.99 and $149.99 respectively or you can check out the lineup in more detail over at
