Steel Series Arctis 3 2019 gaming headphones are Bluetooth compatible, so you can hear music from your phone while using the headphones tethered to your console. They have an excellent microphone for online gaming, which sounds clean and full-bodied. The Steel Series Arctis 5 2019 Edition looks almost comparable to the previous Arctis headphones we’ve tested. They’re incredibly flexible and can be used on any gaming platform despite their lack of sound isolation and plasticky appearance. Furthermore, the batteries last 42 hours.
Steel Series is touted as a true all-arounder. It is considered discreet enough to be worn in public as a gaming headset. It mixes gaming appropriateness with everyday practicality, according to the maker. SteelSeries has now updated the gadget. The 2019 edition is already on the market and is the most recent version of this multi-talent. By the way; we had previously examined the Arctis 3 without Bluetooth and were impressed.
Consequently; we put the headset through its paces to determine; whether it had been upgraded and was acceptable for daily use and if it met all of the other criteria.
We wanted to know what had been changed if the headset was acceptable for daily use; and if it satisfied all of the other standards; so we tried it. The detailed version is provided below. It explains; among other things; why picked the design suitable and why the headgear is somewhat better in the newest edition. Steel Series Arctis 3 2019 Edition Wireless Bluetooth 2019 Edition comes complete with all cords.

Design and craftsmanship:
SteelSeries Arctis 3 2019 Edition Wireless intends to build something other than an eye-catching headset but rather one that is visually pretty plain. In terms of design, a lot has stayed the same. However, minor alterations were made that are visible in a direct comparison. As a result, the headband is less flashy and more conservative. As a result, the brand name has become darker. Otherwise, the color scheme remains consistent – dark, sleek, and understated.
Arctic 3 Bluetooth 2019 Edition SteelSeries:
The “Arctis 3 Bluetooth” gaming headset; is also distinguished by its thin form. It’s not bulky or clumsy; it’s refined in every manner. This functionality was already present in the headset before the 2019 generation. SteelSeries, therefore, demonstrates that it understands and can constantly sustain its strengths. The lack of RGB lighting emphasizes the minimalist aesthetic.
Overall, the design is straightforward and modern. There are no criticisms; to be found here. When mounted, the headset seems manageable and manageable. It blends in visually and is not distracting. In contrast to other gaming headsets, it only gradually draws everyone’s attention, which makes it appear ideal for everyday usage at first look.
Both the right and left ear cups include controls. While the left earpiece has a volume dial and mute button for the microphone, as well as all connectors (PC, jack, USB), the right earpiece has a Bluetooth connection button.
The headset appears to be well-made as well. The headset’s body is primarily constructed of hard plastic and seems sturdy; which is a plus. The headband is adjustable; and the mussels are amply cushioned. They have some buttons that may use to control the headset. We are unable to discover any flaws in craftsmanship.
The head strap is worn like ski goggles. On closer inspection, it looks enormous, making it appear challenging. This impression, however, is deceiving; it is remarkably light, as is the complete headset, and it nestles pretty nicely on the wearer’s head. While wearing, the head strap is barely noticeable.
The SteelSeries Arctis 3 2019 Edition Wireless are also light and do not push. Unlike other gaming headphones, this one does not require a longer break-in time. The auricles are sensed; yet they seldom draw unfavorable attention. Another visible improvement is in the ear cushion; which are now more cushioned after several customers reported that their ears could touch the interior of the original Arctis 3. We can’t comment on this because it hasn’t troubled us in the past.
Furthermore, the ears beneath the mussels stay pleasantly cold and dry. Overheating has nearly become the norm, and uncomfortable perspiration during protracted wearing is thus unavoidable. SteelSeries Arctis 3 2019 Edition Wireless employs an AirWave performance fabric, which the business claims is based on sports materials for athletes. In reality, we must acknowledge that this particular cloth improves wearing comfort. More extended gaming periods are achievable without sticky, hot ears. The fabric also remains wonderfully dry.
Regarding the sound, it should note that while the “Arctis 3 Bluetooth” is a stereo headset, 7.1 surround sound is feasible with Windows Sonic. It is meant to give the wearer a more incredible feeling of space and exact sound placement. When it comes to gaming, surround sound might be a game changer. The SteelSeries Engine 3 was required in the original edition. However, this is no longer necessary.
The headset stood out in the test because of its clean treble and rich bass. The mids can appear less dynamic sometimes, although this is essential when considering the entire audio bandwidth.
When you play, the sound is excellent. It adapts nicely to the circumstances of each game and is generally quite satisfying. However, depending on your preferences. Only some genres can faithfully recreate it. You will be satisfied; if you also want to listen to music through headphones.
However, the overall sound quality is good.
The microphone on the SteelSeries Arctis 3 2019 Edition Wireless operates significantly better. The microphone mocks disturbing background noises. Ensuring the speaker is always evident. SteelSeries claims that this will provide studio quality. It impressed us in our testing with clear recordings and effective noise reduction.

We have nothing negative to say about the microphone. It’s extremely, really nice.
Transmission, Battery, and Connections:
Bluetooth or a wire can connect the headset to an output device. Establishing the connection in the test works flawlessly in both circumstances. The link is reliable in Bluetooth mode. We found no faults or problems throughout the trial. The wireless range is ten meters; which is unlikely to be surpassed; in ordinary life. A 3.5mm double jack extension cable; a leading cable; and an adapter; are included. On the plus side, the headset may simultaneously use Bluetooth and cable. As a result, you may easily take a phone call while gaming.
With an active listening period of up to 28 hours, the battery provides lots of flexibility. A battery charge comfortably lasted many days in our test. As a result, the headset has no flaws in this area.
- Superior sound reproduction faithfulness to the original recording.
- The most fantastic online gaming microphone.
- A Bluetooth-compatible gaming headset.
- A clumsy and awkward physique.
- The delivery of the bass and treble differs from person to person in reaction to the presence of eyeglasses. There are no software support options for customization.
