Once again, SteelSeries, fuses gaming and culture by introducing their new installment to the Arctics Nova family, the Arctis Nova 5 series. The new headset drops the 3.5mm jack altogether, and introduces a plethora of features, including more than 100 presets to suit every gaming situation via a dedicated companion app.

The brand’s design and engineering teams set out to craft something new with 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 result is the Arctis Nova 5, and the Nova 5 Companion App, the first of its kind to give players access to over 100 audio presets at their fingertips.

“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.” said Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO.

SteelSeries has been laser-focused on the gamer experience and leading the way in defining a gaming lifestyle. As of January 2024, there are over 3.4B gamers worldwide, which includes 887M PC, 334M PlayStation, 247M Nintendo, 227M Xbox, and 2.8B mobile gamers, and they typically play games across multiple platforms.

The Nova 5 Companion App 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. 

Custom-designed Neodymium Magnetic Drivers ensure gamers can hear everything with an ultra-detailed soundscape of crystal-clear highs, pinpoint mids, and deep bass. A dedicated Quick-Switch makes taking calls while gaming, switching from high-speed 2.4GHz to Bluetooth 5.3 much easier with a tap of a button. Mobile connections remain on standby when players are back in the action, so they can receive calls. The 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.

The Arctis Nova 5’s ClearCast 2.X Mic offers 2X the bandwidth, 2X the clarity, featuring a new high-bandwidth chipset supporting 32KHz/16Bit audio to keep comms crystal clean and clear. What’s more is you can enjoy more than 60 hours of wireless gaming with every full charge, with USB-C fast charging delivering another 6 hours of charge in only 15 minutes.

The SteelSeries Sonar Audio Software Suite is the first pro-grade parametric EQ designed for gamers. Sonar allows gamers to adjust every individual frequency and hear the sounds that matter the most–and  supercharge vocals even further with Sonar AI-Powered Noise Cancellation on PC for the ultimate two-way noise reduction on comms. 

The Arctis Nova 5 Series is priced starting at PHP 7,765 and is available via and select authorized retailers in the Philippines starting at Php 7,765.00:
