SteelSeries Arctis Nova 3 Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2022-10-03

Compared to the previous Arctis models, the Nova 3 seemed lighter as soon as we have started wearing it, while keeping a high comfort level. After adjusting the settings with our preferences via the Engine module, we started listening to several music videos on YouTube, vlogs but also watched some TV shows; the sound is great regarding lows, mids, while the crisp highs allow voices to be optimally rendered. Regarding games, we did play Forza Horizon 5 where car engines were a joy to listen, along with the nice soundtrack which complements the experience; in Warframe, the sound of the weapons were well represented, along with the screams of despair when slaying foes.
