Gamers can now enjoy seamless audio using Xbox Wireless with the first member of the award-winning Arctis family designed specifically for Xbox


CHICAGO – April 23, 2019 – SteelSeries, the global leader in gaming peripherals and the makers of the most award-winning headset line in history, today announces the Arctis 9X for Xbox One. This is the first member of the Arctis family of gaming headsets designed specifically for Xbox One. The 9X features Xbox Wireless connectivity for a clean and easy setup, plus simultaneous Bluetooth audio, making this the premier wireless headset for Xbox gamers.

“The Arctis family is the fastest growing headset brand in the world,” said SteelSeries CEO, Ehtisham Rabbani. “We know Xbox gamers have been clamoring for an Arctis for Xbox for a long time, so we’re delighted to finally introduce the newest addition of our Arctis line made specifically for them.”

The Arctis 9X connects directly to your Xbox One, just like a wireless controller. The hassle-free setup will have you gaming in seconds with no cable or dongle required. Featuring full integration with the Xbox, gamers can balance game and chat volumes on the fly with the on-headset ChatMix control and even see the headset’s battery level from the Xbox dashboard.

“We worked with Microsoft directly to create a brand-new Xbox Wireless solution from the ground up,” said Brian Fallon, Senior Product Category Manager of Audio at SteelSeries. “As a result, we’ve created the highest quality implementation of the Xbox Wireless connection seen on an Xbox headset to-date.”

In addition to Xbox connectivity, the Arctis 9X is equipped with dual wireless technology, meaning gamers can enjoy any Bluetooth-enabled device at the same time they are playing. Bluetooth can be used to take calls, listen to music, or VoIP chat while mixing in game audio from their Xbox. The headset can also be taken on the go with independent Bluetooth wireless audio, even away from the Xbox.

The retractable ClearCast microphone delivers studio-quality voice clarity and background noise cancellation. Competitive gamers rely on clear, noise-free communication and the bidirectional ClearCast mic delivers.

The headset utilizes the award-winning Arctis soundscape to emphasize subtle, yet critical sounds. The unparalleled clarity of Arctis Signature Sound provides a distinct audio advantage over the competition. Xbox’s native Windows Sonic Spatial Audio lets users lose themselves in the game as every ricochet, shuffling zombie and engine roar comes to life around them.

Gamers won’t have to worry about constantly having to charge the Arctis 9X. Using the latest power efficiency technology, the headset is optimized to provide up to 20 hours of battery life, double that of other wireless Xbox headsets.

In addition to all of the awards already won by the Arctis line, the Arctis 9X was awarded an iF Gold Design Award 2019 and Red Dot Design Award for its high design quality and innovation.

The Arctis 9X is available now for $199.99 at
