It was plug and play for me. My motherboard didn't have USB-C port so I used the dongle, didn't bother me as it hangs out in the back. It also works on my Galaxy S10 Plus for sound at least, haven't tried the mic on my phone. I bought this to use as a wireless pair when I roll around in my game room and don't have to worry about yanking the cable. I already own an external mic. The EQ is pretty useful and the quality is superb to me. Bass is there but not overpowering. Comfort wise it starts off clampy but cushioned enough for 3 hours+ use. Battery is good enough for my sessions.
Conectividad: Se conectan muy rápido con tan solo conectar el dispositivo que trae y encenderlos.
Retraso en el sonido: Jamás he experimentado ningún retraso en el sonido, funcionan perfecto en ese sentido.
Calidad de Sonido: La calidad es muy buena, bajos decentes y un sonido limpio en la mayoría de los casos.
Batería: La batería dura mucho, mas de 20 horas.
Nintendo: Funcionan perfecto, para mi son la mejor solución que hay en el mercado. Funcionan tanto en el Dock como directamente en el Switch.
Calidad de construcción: A pesar de tener muchas piezas de plástico, el headset es muy resistente y se nota la calidad.
Comodidad: He pasado horas jugando o trabajando y realmente son cómodos. No calientan mucho y no dejan dolor.
It has some great quality of life stuff, but you need to download the software to control some of the festures. I also love how if I forget to turn on the headset, if the USB dongle is connected sound won't play at all through the tv/monitor. I also really love the battery life. I can use this for 10+ hours no problem for about 2 days before needing to recharge.
Overall this might be best value/money headset I've owned or used.
There is an in depth review of the sound quality of the Steel Series Arctic 1 (NON WIRELESS) headphones on rtings.com, and it shows a pretty good picture of what this headset is capable of and I suggest you look it up for yourself. I hope they review the wireless variant soon. Personally I think the sound quality is good right off the bat, although the bass is boosted while the treble is a little muted. Some time with an equalizer improved this a little bit, but really for this price I'm very pleased considering this is the only type C low latency multipurpose headset.
The isolation is weak, but I'm used to extremely open backed headphones so this is still an improvement for me.
Sound isolation is achieved primarily with these being closed back headphones, yet for being closed back there is still a decent sound stage that the headset achieves.
Unfortunately I have not used the microphone yet, but I read that it does an acceptable job for a removable mic.
Now the build quality will not blow you away.. at all, but maybe that's why they were able to hit this approachable price point. Cheap plastic and very shallow/soft ear pads are really what I'm talking about, making it feel like any other relatively cheap gaming headset. There is a positive though, and if anyone has ever owned any other Steel Series Arctic headset than you may know. These have a very typical steel reinforced headband design, and that's GREAT, because every other Arctic headset has hinge and headband issues (including the most expensive Arctic Pro Wireless). Just look it up and you will find countless forums begging Steel Series to update this design so they don't have so send in their headset to warranty repair for the third/fourth time.
Comfort is mediocre, but that is mostly due to the ear pads. You will feel your ears resting against the speaker grill and they will get sore. That is a very common complaint about this headset, but I intend to order modified all purpose ear pads to help alleviate that. Clamping pressure is pretty tight on my slightly larger than average head, but the headset is relatively light for a wireless variant. Breath-ability is average, the stock pads do an okay job with sweat control, not recommended to exercise with as wireless earbuds will be superior.
Now you may ask what is all the fuss about this headset? Steel Series already makes a cheap Bluetooth gaming headset. The Arctic 3 Bluetooth may be more comfortable out of the gate, but Bluetooth still doesn't belong in the gaming spot light. High latency is still prevalent in the vast majority of Bluetooth headphones making them a big turn off for competitive, and even casual, gamers. Bluetooth doesn't always pair easily as well, making it mostly useful for listening to music on your phone. Other low latency wireless headsets require a (usually large) base station to be plugged into whatever device your are using, and they are not always compatible with every device you have. The tiny type C dongle on these headphones will have you hearing whatever you plugged into within 10 seconds, no fuss, with very low latency and a good 20 hour battery. The headset also comes with a
USB-C to USB-A adapter for consoles and computers.
Overall the quality of this headset is okay to good, but as an android user with a type C phone this headset can be used wirelessly on anything I want for $120 retail.
That's why this is a 5 star product for me.
I bought it on Amazon.sg, but when tried to return, I was asked to send it to Nevada. I believe return address should be in Singapore for Amazon.sg items.
