SteelSeries Arctis 3 All-Platform Review

SteelSeries gaming headset review. Updated 2020 Amazon pricing, audio specs, and review - using scores built around ratings such as volume control, material quality, sound quality, battery life and noise cancellation. Are these SteelSeries headphones right for a PC gamer?

Should you buy the SteelSeries Arctis 3 All-Platform?

PCGameBenchmark has reviewed pretty much every PC gaming headset available on Amazon. We've ignored some of the smaller and generic brands. We've filtered to only show the best gaming headsets wireless and wired available to buy right now - this SteelSeries gaming headset made our 2020 list.

Now's a great time to buy a new PC gaming headset. So many games are enhanced with great audio, there are always SteelSeries deals to be had (no need to wait for Black Friday 2020) and there's a massive range to chose from. High quality sound is super important when you’re playing and the speakers built into gaming monitors are pretty rubbish. If you’re looking to hear someone creep up on you in Fortnite or love the bass on Apex Legends, you need a proper immersive audio experience and the privacy that brings.

This black headset weighs 0.6 lb (0.27 kg).

PCGameBenchmark ratings are built up from the scores the Amazon community give the most important aspects of a PC gaming headset. We merge those scores to create a percentage rating.

Noise cancellation rates at 4.4 stars.

Battery life is 4.3 stars.

Build quality is important - you will want your headphones to last - these score a 4.0. Put all that together and we have our final percentage score.

The SteelSeries Arctis 3 All-Platform gaming headset delivers performance and style without compromise to every gamer who owns more than one platform, whether that’s PC, PlayStation, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, VR or mobile, via detachable 3.5mm cables. The highly rated ClearCast microphone delivers studio quality voice clarity as well as background noise cancellation, while the S1 speaker drivers have been engineered to produce ultra low distortion audio. This performance is wrapped in AirWeave ear cushions, which keep players’ ears cool and dry, even during extended play.

Look out for a SteelSeries Arctis 3 All-Platform Amazon discount deal in the Black Friday 2020 sale.
