Today we will be checking out the Arctis 5 gaming headset by SteelSeries. In my opinion SteelSeries is one of the leaders in manufacturing gaming headsets. I don’t think I am alone in that thinking either. For some time now SteelSeries has been sending me their headsets to review and share with you guys and not once have I ever been displeased with any of them. My favorite headset of all-time is the SteelSeries V3 Prism.
I have reviewed other headsets from SteelSeries and other alike but I have never been able to say the sound was better than my Prism headset. Has SteelSeries released the Arctis line to finally change my mind! Keep reading and find out all the little details about the Arctis 5 and in the conclusion I will reveal if my Prism headset was crushed by the new kid on the block.

It’s the end of compromise. Every Arctis headset comes with our flagship audio drivers, a ClearCast mic and extraordinary comfort. The rest is up to you.
