SteelSeries Upgrades Arctis Line of Headsets

SteelSeries has announced the availability of the GameDAC gaming audio system to be purchased standalone and unveils updates of its award-winning Arctis line of headsets. The GameDAC, from the  Arctis Pro + GameDAC and the only ESS Sabre DAC in the market, is now compatible with all headphones and gaming headsets.

The SteelSeries GameDAC

The SteelSeries GameDAC is an audiophile-grade, dedicated high-fidelity USB DAC and amplifier specifically made for gaming.  Combined with the flagship Arctis Pro headset, the GameDAC was a part of gaming’s first complete high-fidelity audio system. Now, whether used with an Arctis, a separate pair of audiophile headphones, or any other gaming headset, the GameDAC enhances the experience with powerful, high-fidelity audio.

The GameDAC is powered by ESS Sabre DAC and amplifier with unsurpassed audio quality with 121dB of dynamic range and -115dB Total Harmonic Distortion + Noise. As gaming’s certified first Hi-Res Audio DAC, it ensures users hear high-fidelity 96 kHz / 24-bit audio at its purest full resolution with no downsampling. The power of the ESS Sabre chip inside makes bass sound tighter, individual sound effects more distinct and with the support of DTS Headphone:X 2.0, creates pin-point accurate positional cues.

The GameDAC does work with the Xbox One, but you will have to use a separate app (e.g. Xbox One App for mobile or tablet) for voice chat

The GameDAC is available now globally for $129.99.

The New Arctis 3, 5 and 7

The new Arctis 3, 5 and 7 still use all the best features of the original Arctis line including the Discord-certified ClearCast microphone; low-distortion S1 speaker drivers for high-quality audio; the iconic ski-goggle headband design and exclusive AirWeave earcups. With the new generation, SteelSeries has taken the feedback received from gamers and refined the award-winning design.

The new line features a variety of new aesthetic changes compared to the original Arctis line. All new models feature added memory foam for enhanced comfort, and the headband on the Arctis 7 has been redesigned to closer resemble that of the Arctis Pro for an improved fit for heads of all sizes.

In addition to the aesthetic changes, the new Arctis 5 and Arctis 7 will receive several performance upgrades. The soundscape has been updated to support an extended bass response and the Arctis 5 and Arctis 7 will both receive an upgrade to DTS Headphone: X v2.0. Existing customers with the original Arctis 5 and Arctis 7 will also receive the performance upgrades through SteelSeries Engine.

So, there you have it gamers, some great news from Steelseries.
