      Answer

      All headsets have the ability to playback voice. It's just a setting in your OS

        No, it's wired analog. It comes with a long cable with dual 3.5mm for desktop PCs and a short 4-pole 3.5mm plug for laptops, consoles, mobile...etc. But it does include 7.1 surround sound and other audio DSP in their SteelSeries Engine software.

            Answer

            I wanted a headset comfortable for this reason as others were squeaky or too tight etc. I find it great, the material doesn't stick or anything to my frames and it's not tight to cause pain like others have. Highly recommend!

          What's the difference between the arctis 5 and the arctis 3   (4 Answers)

            Answer

            Hey Trueman, The Arctis 3 and Arctis 5 have a few key differences. While both offer virtual 7.1 surround sound, the Arctis 3 uses SteelSeries 7.1 and the Arctis 5 uses DTS Headphone:X 7.1. The Arctis 3 is purely analog (3.5mm connections), and the Arctis 5 has adapters for both USB and 3.5mm connections. Both are compatible with SteelSeries Engine 3, which gives you a ton of audio customization options. They also both have the same 40mm audio drivers and bidirectional mic, so you're not losing any sound or voice quality when you switch between the two. Because of the extra power provided by the USB, the Arctis 5 has customizable RGB lighting on both earcups. This will only work with the USB plugged in. The 5 also includes an inline ChatMix dial, which lets you balance between game chat (skype, discord, whatever) and the in-game audio. This is surprisingly useful when you've got that annoying guy either screaming or basically whispering during a match.

              When I spoke to the company reps they said they're identical apart from the colors on the 5, but the box says there's a chat feature on the 5 I believe.
