Experience detailed sound with DTS Headphone:X
The SteelSeries Arctis 5 has been designed around the DTS Headphone:X technology* to deliver the most accurate reproduction of virtual 7.1 sound for an immersive video game experience. Utilise the S1 40mm drivers to find a level of detail in your audio which allows you to accurately identify exactly where your game sounds are coming from. Hear every footstep of approaching enemies or easily identify the source of produced sounds to give you the gaming edge.

*DTS Headphone:X surround sound technology only available on Windows 7 and up

Be heard with ClearCast
The SteelSeries Arctis 5 features broadcast quality sound recording using ClearCast technology built directly into the bi-directional microphone. This technology makes it possible to enhance your recording quality to ensure every command or vocal prompt is heard by your team mates. The Arctis 5 also features an inline ChatMix dial which lets you raise or lower game chatter without reducing overall in game sounds. For when you don’t want to be heard the microphone can easily be muted and retracted into the ear-cup when not in use to protect against damage.

Cross-Platform compatible
The SteelSeries Arctis 5 gaming headset features dual connectivity options to allow you to connect the headset to your favourite gaming system. Use the 3.5mm connection with the included adaptor to hook your headset up to mobile smartphones, VR headsets or Xbox series consoles, or you can use the USB connection to connect directly to PC, Mac or PlayStation consoles.

SteelSeries Engine 3 customisation
The SteelSeries Arctis 5 uses the all in one SteelSeries Engine 3 to give you multiple customisation options to make your Arctis 5 your own. The headset has been fitted with Prism RGB lighting and can be configured to illuminate your Arctis 5 in up to 16.8 million colours, or chose from multiple lighting profiles such as pulse or solid colour. Fine tune your Arctis 5 sound production using customisable equaliser settings and save each change as a profile, these profiles can be recalled quickly based on your gaming preference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sound And Comfort Took a chance on these, and glad I did they run with Dolby 7.1 or better still DTS which is even better. Build is good, as is the software,running destiny 2 on PC, and I am hearing so many sounds that where not picked up with my old Corsair 501s. Just hope they last a long while.

I was wondering do these headphones work with an Xbox One? (By work I mean allow you to talk to you friends and hear game volume). It says that they work on Xbox on the Maplin website but on the SteelSeries website it doesn't list the Xbox.
