SteelSeries Arctis Pro hits lowest price ever on Prime Day
If you want to buy great gaming gear at a great price, one tip is to look to last year’s model. Older gaming accessories often work just fine with the latest PCs and consoles, but with fewer bells and whistles. This is the case of the SteelSeries Arctis Pro, which makes the difference between a gaming headset and an audiophile headset. The Arctis Pro is one of the most capable headsets SteelSeries has ever released, and it’s currently available at a steep discount thanks to a Prime Day sale.
The SteelSeries Arctis Pro is now $113 on Amazon (opens in a new tab), which is the lowest price we have ever seen for the product. The device typically costs $179, and it’s arguably worth the premium.
In November 2019, the Arctis Pro hit $119 for a few days, but has been hovering between $124 and $179 ever since. If you’ve always dreamed of a high-end wired gaming headset, this may be as good as things get until the holiday season.
The main reason the SteelSeries Arctis Pro price dropped so precipitously is that SteelSeries recently came out with a replacement. The SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro features an all-new design, an included digital audio converter (DAC), and a slightly more robust soundscape. However, the Arctis Nova Pro also costs $250, and that extra $100 could buy a whole lot more games, especially if you take advantage of some Prime Day video game deals.
Besides, the Arctis Pro has a lot to offer on its own merits, as we pointed out when we reviewed its wireless counterpart, the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless. With a durable design, subtle RGB lighting, USB chatmix dial, and Hi-Res Audio capabilities, this device should appeal to competitive and solo gamers, as well as anyone who just wants a good everyday headset for music. and productivity. It’s not the newest model, and by today’s standards, it’s no longer the fanciest. But at $113, it’s a fantastic deal.
