A great gaming headset can make your play time even better, and seems even more essential when it comes to a console that’s designed to be able to go anywhere…like the Nintendo Switch. As such, it’s good news to hear that SteelSeries’ latest Arctis 3 headphones will be compatible with the console at launch.
SteelSeries, the fastest growing major PC gaming headset brand in the US*, announces compatibility between the Arctis 3 gaming headset and the highly-anticipated gaming console, the Nintendo SwitchTM. Using the Switch’s headphone jack, the Arctis 3 headset brings the same high-quality audio performance gamers have come to expect from the Arctis line with a style anyone would be comfortable wearing while playing on-the-go.
“Arctis 3 is the best headset for everywhere you game, which makes it perfectly suited for the Nintendo Switch” said Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO. “We designed Arctis 3 with the industry’s best audio drivers, our exclusive athletics-inspired ski goggle suspension headband and AirWeave ear cushions, for performance and comfort at an accessible price for gaming on all-platforms.”
I was able to test out a pair back in November and it’s a pretty incredible headset, which has since become my primary option for headphones while playing. Their sleek and clean design makes it ideal for people to wear out and about without looking out of place…Something that’s ideal for gaming on the go. I mean, if you’re taking the Switch all over the place, there will undoubtedly be time when the built in audio speakers just won’t work for you. Having a surround sound headphone option (especially a high quality one) is definitely nice.
If you need to pick one up for your Switch, you can snag them on Amazon.
