Another day, another Bluetooth headset that has been unleashed on the market. What makes the SteelSeries Arctis 3 Bluetooth headset different from the other available models? For starters, this is a unique proposition as it offers a hybrid-like quality, allowing wired connectivity when it involves gaming, while a Bluetooth connection is called upon for just about everything else. This brand new headset is certainly revolutionary in such a technical make up, enabling chat or music connections via apps such as Discord over Bluetooth, at the same time receiving wired audio connections with PC or over a console like the PS4, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.
To be able to hear audio from both Bluetooth and wired sources simultaneously is certainly a unique feature for any headset. The thing is, will the person wearing it be able to make out all of the incoming audio cues? We do know that SteelSeries has specially designed the Arctis 3 Bluetooth to be your go-to pair of headphones when you game, as it offers remarkable sound quality, comfort and style regardless of the gaming platform that you are on, be it the PC, Mac, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, VR and yes, even mobile.
We like the fact that the Arctis 3 Bluetooth can be deemed to be perfect for the Nintendo Switch. With it, gamers are able to hook up their handsets via Bluetooth in order to take advantage of the Nintendo Switch Online chat mobile app. As for the wired connection, it will still be able to send game audio from the Nintendo Switch. Such flexible connectivity enables gamers to receive calls, join in on VoIP chats as well as stream music wirelessly via Bluetooth even when hearing balanced and powerful game audio using the 3.5mm connection. Expect the Arctis 3 Bluetooth headset to arrive with a recommended retail price of $129.99.
