Press Release

SteelSeries today expands the Arctics Nova family by introducing the Arctis Nova 5 series headsets and Nova 5 Companion App. The new SteelSeries Arctis Nova 5 Series headsets feature three innovative goals in mind: create better audio for the games people play on Xbox and PlayStation; develop a wireless gaming headset that’s both premium and accessible; and allow gamers to play longer and harder. The new gaming headset features the new Nova 5 Companion App that provides access to over 100 audio presets, Quick Switch Wireless freedom with high-speed 2.4GHz or Bluetooth 5.3 at the tap of a button, and an extraordinary 60+ Hour Battery Life.

The SteelSeries Arctis Nova 5 comes in three models, the Arctis Nova 5 Wireless, Arctis Nova 5P Wireless for the PlayStation family, and the Arctis Nova 5X Wireless for the Xbox family of consoles.

Key Features

The Nova 5 Companion App
Introducing a revolutionary app that features 100+ game-specific audio presets that have been meticulously crafted and custom-tailored to each game by audio engineers, esports Pros, and game developers. Gamers can change their audio presets on the fly in real-time and without leaving the game, providing a distinct competitive advantage. Hear what others don't with precisely honed audio profiles for top games like Fortnite, Apex Legends, Minecraft, and more.

Neodymium Magnetic Drivers
Gamers can hear everything with an ultra-detailed soundscape of crystal-clear highs, pinpoint mids, and deep bass. The custom-designed Neodymium Magnetic Drivers are crafted from a rare-earth metal to ensure the perfect audio experience, whatever game or track they are playing.

Quick-Switch Wireless
Easily take calls while gaming, switching from high-speed 2.4GHz to Bluetooth 5.3 with a tap of a button. Mobile connections remain on standby when players are back in the action, so they can receive calls. Keep Fortnite EQs on the 2.4GHz bandwidth without affecting specific media profiles for Bluetooth audio.

Cross-Platform Gaming
A compact USB-C dongle allows gamers to easily swap between all systems, supporting Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, PC, Meta Quest, handhelds, as well as phones and tablets that support USB-C.

ClearCast 2.X Mic
2X the bandwidth, 2X the clarity. SteelSeries’ ClearCast microphone features a new high-bandwidth chipset supporting 32KHz/16Bit audio to keep comms crystal clean and clear. Gamers can supercharge vocals even further with Sonar AI-Powered Noise Cancellation on PC for the ultimate two-way noise reduction on comms. A unique design seamlessly blends the mic into the earcup when fully retracted for on-the-go.

60+ Hours of Wireless Gaming
A 60-hour battery life equates to a full charge lasting 8 hours each day for 7 days in a row. A USB-C fast charging delivers another 6 hours of charge in only 15 minutes.

Sonar Audio Software Suite
The first pro-grade parametric EQ is designed for gamers. Specifically designed to turbocharge any headset for gaming and provide a limitless ability to control sound across games, team chat, and the microphone, Sonar allows gamers to adjust every individual frequency and hear the sounds that matter the most.
