arctic3-top Holiday Wish List: SteelSeries Arctic 3 Bluetooth & Wired HeadsetThe Latest Arctic 3 Bluetooth Headset From SteelSeries Offers Unprecedented Audio Connectivity

Today gaming is becoming even more collaborative. Gamers are using all kinds of technology to immerse themselves in the experience even moreso than in the past. Gamers have been trying to find a way to incorporate the audio of a wired headset and a Bluetooth connection at the same time.

Why you may ask?
There are a lot of reasons. For starters, gamers may use a chat app on their phone via Bluetooth while still wanting to hear the games audio. That’s true for a lot of multiplayer online games. It’s also technology Nintendo Switch users have been craving since the console and companion apps release. The Arctic 3 allows the user to hear both, the audio from the switch, and chats in the mobile app at the same time.

The Arctis 3 Bluetooth also allows console gamers to connect with their friends and community on Discord’s mobile application over Bluetooth, while simultaneously listening to in-game audio from their Xbox One or PlayStation 4 over a wired connection. This connectivity allows gamers to take calls, join VoIP chat and stream music wirelessly over Bluetooth while hearing balanced and powerful game audio through the 3.5mm connection.

SteelSeries Audio Category Manager, Brian Fallon says, “This is the first time that you can simultaneously have wired gaming audio and wireless Bluetooth. Bluetooth is incredibly useful for connecting wirelessly to mobile devices for chat and music, but as most gamers know, Bluetooth has too much latency for gaming. That is why this is a wired headset for gaming and Bluetooth for everything else.”

“We’ve noticed gamers hacking away at blending console game audio and Discord voice for quite some time,” says Eros Resmini, CMO of Discord. “SteelSeries makes that whole process easy with this product and let’s more gamers use Discord with their friends.”

The Arctis 3 Bluetooth features SteelSeries’ low-distortion speakers to deliver incredible sound while gaming on PC, portable console and across mobile devices. Featuring the best microphone in gaming, the SteelSeries ClearCast mic is a retractable bi-directional system that delivers clear voice communication while acoustically eliminating all background and surrounding noise. The athletics-inspired AirWeave performance fabric ear cushions and exclusive ski goggle headband provide extreme and long-lasting comfort.

Intuitive SteelSeries Engine software allows for personalized audio settings, with an innovative, detachable and interchange cable system and a built-in share jack for multi-player listening to make Arctis 3 Bluetooth the best all-platform headset available.

The Arctis 3 Bluetooth is available now at https://steelseries.com/arctisbt for $129.99.
