The SteelSeries Arctis Prime is a stripped down, pro gaming-grade headset with a curious mix of features.
Landing in the middle of SteelSeries’ Arctis headset lineup with a $100 MSRP, the SteelSeries Arctis Prime is built for eSports gamers who want a finely tuned experience they don’t have to mess with. It boasts the same cozy fit and Hi-Res audio capabilities found in their higher end headset in the lineup, like the SteelSeries Arctis Pro ($180 MSRP), and please players seeking something premium, yet uncomplicated.
However, many features that are familiar to gamers who know the Arctis line well have been left on the cutting room floor in favor of a more streamlined experience. That includes bonuses like a ChatMix dial or the option to connect to your PC via USB.
