  • big or small
  • Soft pads on the earcups
  • Mic is clear sounding and good for voice chat
  • Compatible with many devices
  • most wireless

Steelseries Arctis 1 Wireless Review

★★★★ 3.5
Verdict: The Steelseries Arctis 1 Wireless gaming headset is one of the very few ways you can use wireless voice chat on your Nintendo Switch, and it works with most other gaming and mobile devices, too.
The Nintendo Switch is a terrific game system, but it has a significant weakness: voice chat. Without a microphone or Bluetooth functionality, what few games support voice chat require either a wired headset in handheld mode, or using your own phone with Nintendo's awkwardly implemented Switch Online voice chat. Steelseries has a wireless answer for this, and it's a surprisingly flexible and economical one. The $99.99 Arctis 1 Wireless gaming headset uses a USB-C dongle to connect wirelessly to your Nintendo Switch, enabling game audio with voice chat, and thanks to a USB-A extension cable and a 3.5mm connection, it can work just as well with your PC or any other game console. If you've been looking for a way to talk trash on Fortnite with your Switch without using any wires, the Arctis 1 is a compelling headset, though its audio performance doesn't measure up to similarly priced wired options. Design The Arctis 1 Wireless is built similarly to the wired Arctis 1, with a fairly s...
Pros: 
  • Works wirelessly with the Nintendo Switch
  • Flexible connection options
  • Comfortable
Cons: 
  • Bass-heavy, slightly muddy sound
  • Mediocre microphone
  • USB dongle is inconvenient when using with a phone
  • No place to store the dongle
