SteelSeries Arctis Nova 5 has 100+ gaming audio presets

When it comes to gaming, not only does a good gaming headset help, but fine-tuning your audio levels can also make a difference. Unfortunately, that can take time. The latest SteelSeries gaming headset — the Arctis Nova 5 — aims to cut down on that time with a companion app with over 100 audio presets for popular games.

According to SteelSeries, the Arctis Nova 5 gaming headset was created with three goals in mind:

  1. Create better audio for the games people play on Xbox and PlayStation
  2. Develop a wireless gaming headset that’s both premium and accessible
  3. Allow gamers to play longer and harder

The result is a gaming headset with a companion app (the Nova 5 Companion App) that offers up over 60 hours of battery life, over 100 audio presets, Quick Switch Wireless between high-speed 2.4GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.3, and an affordable price point of $129.99.

“Innovation is key, and we use it to unlock the power of imagination and push boundaries to provide gamers with premium audio experiences. The introduction of the Arctis Nova 5 and Companion App, with over 100 audio presets, is literally ‘game-changing’ and provides users with an epic audio advantage for console gaming.”
