Sunday, 26 May 2024

Steelseries recently launched the next gaming headset in their Nova lineup with the Arctis Nova 5 Wireless and paired it up with their new mobile app, the Companion App, bringing game-changing audio presets to your devices and consoles.

“Innovation is key, and we use it to unlock the power of imagination and push boundaries to provide gamers with premium audio experiences. The introduction of the Arctis Nova 5 and Companion App, with over 100 audio presets, is literally ‘game-changing’ and provides users with an epic audio advantage for console gaming.”
Ehtisham Rabbani, CEO, Steelseries.

For the newest member of the award-winning Arctis Nova line of headsets, the design and engineering team set out to craft something new with three innovative goals in mind; create the best audio experience to all gamers regardless which platform they are on; develop a premium yet accessible wireless gaming headset; and lastly, allow gamers to play with less downtime. The culmination of this idea resulted to the creation of the Arctis Nova 5, and the Nova 5 Companion App, the first of its kind app to give players access to over 100 audio presets at their fingertips, Quick Switch Wireless freedom with high-speed 2.4GHz or Bluetooth 5.3 at the tap of a button, and an extraordinary 60+ Hour Battery Life.
