New SteelSeries Arctis Nova 4 Headset For PS5, Xbox, And PC Launches Soon
The wireless SteelSeries Arctis Nova 4 releases on May 20 for $120 USD.
SteelSeries is set to launch a new line of wireless gaming headsets for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC: The Arctis Nova 4. There are versions branded for each platform, and the console-specific ones will be available exclusively through GameStop, and the model for PC will be available at other retailers. All versions of the Arctis Nova 4 release on May 20 (and appears to already be available to purchase) for $120 USD, which makes it one of the relatively affordable premium-level wireless gaming headsets.
The upcoming Arctis Nova 4 aims to be the wireless successor to the Arctis Nova 1 and includes many of the features SteelSeries headsets have boasted such as the Nova acoustic system for high-quality spatial audio and SteelSeries Sonar software to customize the audio experience. All versions of the headset come with the Quantum 2.0 high-speed USB-C dongle to offer lag-free audio feed regardless of platform.
It also features similar ergonomics with its ComfortMAX design and remains relatively light at 262g / 9.24oz--SteelSeries headsets have historically been quite comfortable based on our experience with previous models. Lastly, the Arctis Nova 4 has a retractable microphone with ClearCast AI noise-canceling that reduces up to 25dB of outside noise.
