DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound

DTS Headphone:X makes all this possible with an incredible technology that simulates the 3D environment of the audio's original mixing stage. And that means your movies, music and games sound exactly the way the artist intended.

  • Next-generation DTS Headphone:X v2.0 surround sound
  • Balance Game and Chat Audio with the USB ChatMix dial

Award-winning Arctis Sound Quality


Sound is your competitive advantage with the high quality S1 speaker drivers, engineered to produce ultra-low distortion audio so you hear every detail.

Lightweight Design

SS's goal was to create a lightweight headset so comfortable, you'll forget you're wearing them, even during marathon gaming sessions.

We went back to the drawing board and stripped down all the unnecessary components, leaving us with a minimalistic design that's more efficient at suspending the headset while being as light as possible.

Prism RGB Illumination

Personalize to perfection with 16.8 million colors to choose from. Create custom colorshifts and effects or link all your SteelSeries gear with Prism Sync.

Control your Headset's RGB LEDs with the Free SteelSeries Engine App. Choose your Lighting effect and the colors you want and let the world know you are ready for anything.


DTS Headphone:X v2.0

When we launched the Arctis Pro line, we introduced DTS Headphone:X v2.0, a significant upgrade to the surround sound tech. This new version is more immersive, more accurate, and overall provides a better surround sound experience for all types of games. We have now upgraded to DTS Headphone:X v2.0 in all Arctis 5 headsets, which is available through SteelSeries Engine for all old and new Arctis 5 users.

The next generation of DTS' renowned surround sound, Headphone:X v2.0 immerses you in the action by delivering incredibly accurate positional cues without sounding like you're in a tunnel. Lose yourself in the game as the audio comes to life all around you.


Ski Goggle Headband


The Ski Goggle suspension band, which effortlessly wraps itself around heads of all shapes and sizes and evenly distributes the light weight of the headset. Use the simple Velcro adjustments to dial in the perfect amount of stretch, and you'll soon forget you're even wearing a headset.

AirWeave Ear Cushions

Added additional foam to the ear cushions making them thicker and more comfortable. Inspired by fabrics found in athletic clothing, the incredibly soft AirWeave ear cushions keep you cool, dry, and comfy for hours of gaming.


Tweaked the soundscape to slightly increase the bass output, making it sound even better when gaming.

On-headset Controls - USB ChatMix Dial

Smaller and firmer on-ear controls for volume and ChatMix. Mix your perfect balance of game and chat audio without leaving your game with the tactile USB ChatMix dial
