"Awesome sound"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The sound really comes to life, I enjoy listening to spotify whilst playing my favourite ps4 games and the Mic sounds awesome. My wife never knows when my headphones are on either because there isnt any residual sound.

"Comfortable headset!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

First of all, I find that the black on the sides rubs off over time; this means that the light shines through where the black once was on either earcup. The headband is clever and very comfortable. Sound is good, software is easy enough to use. Chat/Game volume adjustment is an excellent idea, but the cables are messy for me, and I find myself disconnecting it by accident at least once or twice a week. It doesn't really stay in place well. The dial may need more resistance, it is easy to accidentally turn it all the way mid game, muting the game or chat. The mic is good! It isn't as good as a dedicated mic, but it does a fine job. I find the dual sided mic function to be meh; people can hear my keyboard easily.

"A fantastic product i'd recomend to anyone"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I purchased these headphones in 2017 after going through 2 pairs of headphones in two years and was left stunned at the difference in quality between the arctis 5 and the headphones i'd used previously (a razer pair I'm not sure which model exactly). The Arctis has beautiful sound quality and amazing control over the experience with the volume control wheel, the quality doesn't come in a bulky frame however and the headset is one of the lightest I've owned before, I can have them on for 5+ hours at a time without feeling any discomfort on the top of my head or ears. This pair of headphones have lasted me 3 years and the worst that has happened to them is a foam ring popping out that I got back into place in 5 minutes. The microphone isn't the best on the market but for a 2017 headset for 150 dollars it is exceptional quality like the rest of the headset.

SteelSeries Arctis 5 (2019 Edition) 7.1 Surround* RGB Gaming Headset.

Difference btw original Arctis 5 and the 2019 Edition?
We listened to customers and made our amazing gaming headset even better. We made the cable from the ChatMix dial to the headset longer, increased the thickness of the ear cushions for greater comfort, and tweaked the sound for deeper bass output. All Arctis 5s now also include DTS Headphone:X v2.0, the latest surround sound technology from DTS..
