The SteelSeries Arctis Prime delivers booming, bright audio for gaming and music. It comes with comfortable leatherette ear cups and a solid noise-cancelling microphone. However, there's no SteelSeries software support, which should come standard. For the same price, pick up the Razer Barracuda X, which offers full wireless support.

The SteelSeries Arctis Prime is built for eSports gamers who want a finely tuned experience they don't have to mess with. It boasts the same 40mm neodymium drivers that support Hi-Res are found in the pricier ArCTis Pro. The increased audio fidelity and wide frequency gamut bring out great detail in game audio mixes.
