- QuestionThe Steelseries website says that the Arctis 5 is compatible with PC, Mac, Mobile, PS4, Xbox One and VR. Your specifications seem to leave out the Xbox One. Why is that? (5 Answers)Answers
It is compatible with the Xbox One. The box comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack adapter to plug right up to the controller. However, you'll only be able to modify the RGB lighting and utilize DTS:X on a PC via the USB port.

- QuestionBesides the 7 being wireless what are the differences between the 5 and 7. Is the $50 more for the 7 worth it and are wireless gaming headsets worth it, like do they work just as well as the wired? (5 Answers)Answers
Yes, the Arctis 7 is wireless. It also has a metal headband instead of plastic, and the ski goggle band is longer and wraps completely around the headset. The 7 also has inputs and outputs on the transmitter. The input lets you hook up something like a phone for wireless audio, and the output can be used to connect speakers, which switch automatically when you turn the headset on and off.

- QuestionI currently have the x800 elites but get complaints about my voice being "too low" is it because they are built in? Would getting the 7s improve my voice volume? Don't want to spend 150 to replace my $300 headset over voice volume. Thanks for any help. (2 Answers)Answers
The TB's have an omni-directional mic on the earcup, which is awful for voice pickup (but is very good for picking up everything else going on in your room). These new Arctis headsets have a bidirectional boom mic that extends right next to your mouth, so it will be much better at picking up your voice!
- QuestionI bought the arctis 5 and I try to record the gameplay but it did not pick up my friends voices in skype. Why it did not pick up my friends voices but it did pick up my voice? (2 Answers)Answers
The way the headset works, if configured properly is that it creates two audio outputs for your system. In one you'll have your game and OS chimes and whatever else you want while on the other you should have only the chat voice audio out. The headset put them both together for you in the end, allowing you to control the volume between them. Simple technique applied cleverly for a great result. However, when recording, most recording solutions will only take ONE audio input. That is why it recorded the game (audio out 1) and your voice (mic), but your friend's voice (audio out 2) was not recorded. A simple solution is to configure your chat applications to use the same audio out (game) as the game and OS. You'll loose control over voice versus game volume, but your videos will record chat audio as well.
