SteelSeries launches a ‘hi-res certified headset’ for gamers tired of crappy audio

Comes with a DAC this is tuned for gaming.

SteelSeries has added three new headsets to its lineup, one of which stands to the be the corporate’s flagship style. That will be the Arctis Professional + GameDAC, which was once ready to earn a Hello-Res brand ^( from the Jap Audio Society and is being billed as “gaming’s first whole hi-res audio device.”
We requested SteelSeries for rationalization on the place the hi-res certification comes from and the corporate informed us it was once issued by means of the Jap Audio Society. In line with our touch at SteelSeries, the certification is greater than only a licensing play: “they make you carefully turn out that the headset can produce hi-res frequencies and give a boost to that prime solution audio.” It is also it appears “tremendous difficult” to reach and calls for the seller to “supply heaps of knowledge.”
Roccat was once in fact first to marketplace with a hi-res qualified gaming headset (that we are conscious about), the Khan Professional ^( that was once presented ultimate yr. On the other hand, SteelSeries makes a difference between first to marketplace with a hi-res qualified headset and gaming’s first whole hi-res audio device, the latter of which the corporate lays declare to with the combination of the GameDAC and Arctis Professional headset itself.
The headset makes use of 40mm neodymium drivers to bang your eardrums with audio at as much as 40,000 Hz. It additionally helps hi-res 96 kHz, 24-bit audio without having for down-sampling. That is aided by means of an “audiophile-grade” ESS Sabre DAC and amp that make up the GameDAC part.
“With 121 decibels (dB) of dynamic vary and -95dB Overall Harmonic Distortion + Noise, the Arctis Professional + GameDAC plays in addition to high-end audiophile apparatus. For players, this implies they listen the cleanest and purest audio imaginable,” SteelSeries says ^(
We have not examined the brand new headset ourselves, however each Forbes ^( and Home windows Central ^( had most commonly just right issues to mention about it.
SteelSeries additionally presented two different variations, the common Arctis Professional and Arctis Professional Wi-fi. They use the similar drivers because the Arctis Professional + GameDAC, however lack the DAC and subsequently aren’t hi-res qualified. Curiously, the Arctic Professional Wi-fi is in fact the most costly of the bunch. It gives twin wi-fi give a boost to by the use of 2.4G lossless and Bluetooth. It additionally includes a swappable dual-battery device.
All three are to be had now. The Arctis Professional ^( sells for the $180, the Arctis Professional Wi-fi ^( is going for $330, and the Arctis Professional + GameDAC ^( is going for $250.

Thank you PC GAMER ^(
