Features

One of the most important SteelSeries Arctis Pro specs is frequency response which is 10 Hz - 40 kHz. Also, you have to consider the sensitivity of the device — 102 dB. Its impedance plays a significant role as well, this feature is 32 Ohm. For adjusting the volume or using any other functions you have app control.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro review

Sound

These headphones have quite weak noise isolation. A decent amount of ambient noise seeps into your audio. Speaking of the sound, SteelSeries Arctis Pro produces a punchy and thumpy bass, a great mid-range, and a pretty good and detailed treble. Their imaging is also great, which means that listeners will be able to hear video game effects like footsteps and pinpoint other players very accurately. But keep in mind that the sound of the device is prone to inconsistencies, so different users can have various experiences with these headphones.

Connectivity

Its audio cable is 300 cm/9.9 ft long and can be detached. The device I am talking about has a 3.5 mm jack connection.

Comfort and design

It is really comfortable to use this appliance since it is equipped with built-in buttons and has in-line control as well. Moreover, you can make phone calls or talk with your friends on Skype using SteelSeries Arctis Pro as it has a detachable microphone. Adjusting the headband size is pretty easy. With regard to disadvantages, the headphones do not fold and you get them without a bag for carrying. When it comes to weight, the device is 425 g/15 oz heavy.
