  • Best gaming headset I have tried
    Reviewed by GeorgeR - October 14, 2016

    I have used both a Kraken Pro and Cloud II, and I thought I really liked them till I bought my new Arctis 5. First impression was that these don't look like the stereotypical gaming headsets. And then I put them on, adjusted the headband and fell in love with the materials they used. Super comfortable. The sound made me realize what I had been missing with the other headsets - clear and sharp highs, mid and low, so you truly hear everything. My final test was with the mic - I have to say that may be the best thing about the Arctis 5. It is truly miles ahead on clarity and noise cancellation. My only complaint is the length of the cord with the chat mix dial. Overall, I LOVE this headset.

  • Best mic of all time
    Verified BuyerReviewed by YeaYou - June 29, 2017

    The arctis 5 is the best headset I have ever had. It's a one size fits all, I have a big head with a lot of hair and it feels super comfortable with the suspension band keeping it t firm on your head. The ear padding is like breathable mesh and very comfortable for long gaming sessions. I've only tried this for PC and not any console. You can only get the 7.1 surround sound on PC. All my friends I talk to say my voice is much more clear and crisp. Best mic ever I would compare the mic to some high end seinhessers. Last but not least the RGB aspect is very nice although you can't see it cause it's on your head just a nice addition to a great sleek and simple headset. Best headset for the money

  • Superb
    Reviewed by CMoss - August 21, 2020

    I am a bit of a sound nut. I have been using my Grado set for music, and my Sennheiser for movies and gaming, but i was thinking maybe I should get something with a mic for gaming. So with the intention of using them for just gaming, i also tried listening to some music on Youtube/Jango/IHeartRadio. These beat both my other pairs by far in my opinion. So much so that i havent put either of my other sets on my head since I bought these like 6 months ago. They truly sound like I am listening to sounds in a studio live and with top of the line equipment. You cant possibly go wrong at this price point, as they sound better than more expensive sets. EZ

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Good sound
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Buck - May 17, 2021

    Sound is great, nice bass, and i wasnt really expecting it to light up and change color on the ear covers. The headband is also pretty comfortable and adjustable. However, the mic light can shine in your eyes, the light turns off when youre muted. So if you have a side conversation while streaming, its at least a good visual reminder that youre not muted.
