SteelSeries is up to some shenanigans with this deal by discounting its awesome Arctis 9 gaming headset down to $99.99. This saves you $46 on its normal price of $146 and is the perfect Black Friday pickup if you’re looking for a headset upgrade. We’ve used quite a few SteelSeries headsets for gaming and are always impressed by how well they end up performing.
With the Arctis 9 you’re getting a dual connectivity headset that will support both Bluetooth and 2.4GHz low-latency. This makes it an extremely versatile headset that can be used with PC, mobile devices, and consoles like the PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch. And you can use it with devices like the Steam Deck and ROG Ally as well. Although these are technically PCs so it could fall under that category.
In addition to the platform compatibility you get a Discord-certified mic that’s retractable so when not in-use you can slide back into the left ear cup for storage. You also get a battery life of up to 20 hours on a single charge which is pretty decent. It’s not as long as some of SteelSeries’ other headsets but definitely enough to enjoy your games for more than a few days depending on how many hours a day you use it.
Another really great feature of these is audio and chat mix. With the dial from the on-ear controls you can adjust how much of the in-game audio comes through and how much of the chat comes through. This adjusts the volume so one way gives you louder volume for chat while the other way is louder volume for game audio. If you’re ready to upgrade you can check out the deal at the link below.
