Maybe you want that sleek Arctis 7 that SteelSeries recently released, but the mere thought of hitting "Buy Now" is making your wallet weep. That's okay -- the Arctis 3 and Arctis 5 sets are still pretty freakin' sweet.
Compatible with basically any type of device, both these headsets feature full 7.1 surround sound, a high-quality and high-comfort design, and inline controls. There isn't much difference between the two models themselves. Aside from a slight upgrade in the type of 7.1 surround sound you're getting (SteelSeries 7.1 on the 3 and DTS X 7.1 on the 5), the only notable advantage of the 3 over the 5 is the addition of RGB illumination.
No matter which one you pick, you're sure to be getting a great sound experience.
That wraps up our list of the best gaming headsets you can buy this holiday season! Planning to pick any of these up? Got others you think should be included here? Let us know in the comments!
