Where to buy

One of the key things that all of us use are gaming Headsets, with many of the frustrations that come with them. From cables being too short, too long, getting trapped under my chairs wheels, to dragging across my desk when I walk across the room.

One of the products that I have found that has surprisingly rocked is the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless. This headset alleviates some of the issues with Wireless headsets (forgetting to charge them) by including two hot-swappable Batteries.

The batteries can be slid into the slot on the right hand side of the transmitter base station, meaning you can play for hours on one battery and hot-swap them out in seconds if the one in the headset dies. I have had to do this a few times over the time I have been using this, and it takes about fifteen seconds to change them.

The headset is really comfortable with an adjustable band and aluminium frame to be almost un-noticeable when wearing it. The padding in the earcups is also far more comfortable than most other devices I have used in the past.

Setting up is also really simple. I have used my base station plugged in just with the USB cable, although this does mean the batteries take longer to charge. You can connect this to Consoles via Optical and USB.

I did use the mic on this as my daily mic for a few months. Its surprisingly good and it really does perform better than most other headset mics I have used.

All things considered I think these are by far the best headsets I have used. Although they are pricy (At about £330) they are worth the cost paid just in the convenience of never having to plug a cable directly into the headset.
