What's Hot

The SteelSeries Arctis Pro + DAC combination is a slick headset that comes with a great looking DAC that backs up all of its aesthetic features with more than adequate performance.

What's Not

The SteelSeries Arctis Pro + DAC comes with very little downside, but if I had to mention some of the aspects I didn't like or would change it would be this; main headset port be relocated to the back of the DAC, longer cables for PS4 users, deeper base, and the adoption of micro-USB instead of the USB Mini B 8-pin cable. I'd also like to see the volume wheel on the left earcup have some added tension.

Final Thoughts

All in all, SteelSeries has done a fantastic job with the Arctis Pro + DAC. I truly believe that the company's goal of bringing out a headset that is capable of playing audiophile-level music, while also being good in-game has definitely been achieved.

So, is the SteelSeries Arctis Pro + DAC worth the $279.99? Yes, and no. I would say 'yes' if you are after a gaming headset that has kick-ass in-game audio, and also doesn't drop off at all once you chuck on some high-quality music. This headset is multi-use case, meaning that is versatility comes with a significant price hike. That price hike is only worth it if you are going to be using all of its features.

So, that means if you are after just a gaming headset and nothing else, then there are other options out there that can provide a similar experience in-game and be more bang for your buck. Ultimately, SteelSeries has released a product that buyers won't be disappointed with if they buy it, and I can personally say that the SteelSeries Arctis Pro + DAC is that good it's now become my daily driver headset. Lovely work here, SteelSeries.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
