SteelSeries Arctis Pro is one of the best-sounding headphones you can buy. As such, it’s worth double consideration if you use your PlayStation 4 to watch movies and listen to music, in addition to gaming.

Why buy this?

Because the Arctis Pro has the same on-ear controls as other models. A volume knob, retractable mic, mute button, and proprietary 3.5mm audio jacks rest on the left cup, and they’re all fairly easy to reach.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro Gaming Headset Review 2021


  • Audio clarity and balance are much better than most of the other sets here. Both the Arctic Pro Wireless and GameDAC versions will work with a PlayStation 4 console, but the vanilla wired version is for PC only, so be sure to choose the correct game before purchasing.
  • The GameDAC model has an external box with high-quality high-resolution audio converters. However, it must be connected, so this may not be the best option if you play a few feet from your PS4. The wireless version may be a better option.
  • SteelSeries Arctis Pro does not repair what is not broken. Like previous Arctis headphones, the Pro has a sleek, understated, all-black look, and they’re the rare gaming headset that you’ll really feel good about wearing outside of your game room.
  • Additional benefits aside, the mute button is bigger and more textured this time around, making it easier to find in the middle of a heated gaming session.
  • With its large OLED screen and intuitive menus, the GameDAC is a breeze to navigate with the volume knob.
  • The DAC’s display provides a quick glance at your volume and you can balance game and chat levels, as well as toggle DTS surround sound, with just one touch.
  • Like previous versions of Arctis, the Arctis Pro is a joy to wear. The headset once again features SteelSeries exclusive ski goggle headband design, automatically conforming to your dome for a snug yet cozy fit.

  • At the heart of SteelSeries Arctis Pro is the GameDAC, a digital-to-analog converter (DAC) that enables SteelSeries headphones to output 96 kHz / 24-bit audio.
  • In layman’s terms, that mean higher resolution, less compressed audio than you’d get from a typical USB or analog connection. The DAC offers a staggering number of features for gamers and audiophiles alike, but it also keeps the Arctis Pro in a key area.
  • Excellent sound quality
  • Dedicated DAC
  • Not well suited to large living room setups


All versions have LEDs around the cups. It may be made for audio perfectionists, but it’s still a gaming headset.

Or all of its great functionality, however, the GameDAC has one big flaw: The cables are way too short. The Arctis Pro + GameDAC is designed to be used at a desk, which is great if you’re a PC gamer or keep your PS4 in your command center, but a bummer for everyone else.
