Słuchawki są bardzo wygodne, miłe w dotyku. Dobrze zaprojektowane i wykonane. Co do mikrofonu jest problem, bo nie tłumi i słychać wentylatory komputera. Dźwięk przestrzenny sprawia, że słyszymy w grze odgłosy chodzenia i otoczenia (Counter Strike). Dzieci od 7 lat mogą śmiało brać słuchawki, bo są lekkie i wygodne. Polecam! :))

Pros

  • Wygodne
  • Dobrze wykonane
  • Lekkie
  • Dżwięk przestrzenny

Cons

  • Mikrofon, który słabo tłumi dźwięki z otoczenia

Sound was nice Crisp, Clear, Loud, and has bass. It's really comfortable and breathability is nice, while canceling out the noise around you. The mic is honestly the best mic I've seen in a headset in a long time. It picks up almost nothing, not the AC behind me not my brothers typing, barley his voice! My voice can be heard clearly and all my buddies noticed instantly I had a different mic that it was better. Went from the Kaira Pro, honestly best thing I could have done.

Pros

  • Feels nice
  • Amazing Mic
  • Detachable cord
  • Aux port
  • Noise canceling mic
  • Good bass

Cons

  • The 2 metal clip for the headstrap

Design

1.has a detachable cable
SteelSeries Arctis 3
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
3.has an over-the-ear form
SteelSeries Arctis 3
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
5.has RGB lighting
SteelSeries Arctis 3
RGB lighting allows you to choose between millions of colors and customize the look of your PC components.
6.can be folded
SteelSeries Arctis 3
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
7.has an earbud form
SteelSeries Arctis 3
The earbud form is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. For some people it is more comfortable than in-ear form.
8.has an in-ear form
SteelSeries Arctis 3
The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.
9.has an on-ear form
SteelSeries Arctis 3
This device comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.

Sound quality

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
7.has a neodymium magnet
SteelSeries Arctis 3
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
8.has passive noise reduction
SteelSeries Arctis 3
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. More drivers may result in better sound quality.

Microphone

1.has a noise-canceling microphone
SteelSeries Arctis 3
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
The lowest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording bass.
The highest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording treble.
4.has a removable microphone
SteelSeries Arctis 3
The microphone can be attached or detached if necessary.
5.has a mute function
SteelSeries Arctis 3
The device has an option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device.
It's the 'loudness' of the sound that the microphone can pick up.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
