The still series artists pro priced at 249 us dollars or 249 UK pounds for the wild version and wait for it. $329 or 299 UK pounds for the wireless pro version over the past seven or eight months. You may or may not know that I’ve been using Logitech’s, Artemis spectrum snow as my Go to headset for gaming. Can Artemis pro-Wireless persuade me to switch? Let’s face it, I wouldn’t have ever paid 299 pounds for a gaming headset so I’m extremely happy and glad that still, Siri sent this out because in the box you actually get a decent amount of kit and of course the audio quality of this headset will make it or break it anyway. Let’s open her up in the box.
There’s plenty of cables for using the headsets. We have a mobile device as well as a PlayStation four pro checking out the deck is minimalist design could be considered a little blonde, although there’s a sick old led screen that relays all of the information you’ll ever need. The unit doesn’t require any software. Eva and all the features are right there on the dock, which is awesome. Browsing through the menu, you’re able to change the EEQ settings, surround sound, chap mix, side tone and many, many other settings. The menu is also extremely easy to navigate. The screen makes changing any setting a breeze and that’s not even the best part. We still series has implemented a charting slot into the side of the dark is game-changing. Most wireless headsets need to be plugged in once he starts to run out of juice. With the artist pro wireless, you never need to plug a cable into the headset ever.
This works so well because the headset comes with two batteries, both rated for 10 hours of continuous use. If the battery starts to run out, you can simply swap it out for a fully charged one. Plus the battery information is right there on the outlet screen that not only release how much juice for the battery is in the headset but for the one charting in the deck as well is such a fantastic idea. Although you will have some downtime while you swap the batteries over the wireless range on another level compared to all the other headsets I’ve ever used, I can walk around my house without a single drop or loss of clarity thanks to the receiver being in the dark, transmitting a loss list, 2.4 gigahertz signal with zero latency. That said the headsets has randomly disconnected on a couple of occasions while I was sat back on a lengthly YouTube binge.
Luckily that has never happened while gaming with the mic on and I guess the headsets also offsetting only uses the microphone to know if you’re using the headset. Okay, so we’ve looked at everything else. Let’s take a look at the actual headsets and again, the design does look a little bland compared to some of the other RGB headsets on the market right now at the top. The headband isn’t adjustable as such. Instead, you’re only able to adjust the strap on the left side, which doesn’t do you much. The headset certainly isn’t a one size fits. Oh, the air cups are padded with soft and comfortable memory foam, but again, nothing feels premium about the headset, especially when it costs so much. The hinges are made of metal and feel robust and strong. They can rotate up to 90 degrees for laying flat on your desk or around your neck on confidence.
They’ll be able to take a fair amount of punishments, although I wouldn’t recommend bending these too much over all the headsets is fairly light as well. For a wireless power at least coming in at 375 grams with a good amount of buttons and dials going through them. On the left ear cup, there’s a mute button, volume control, two USB ports, one micro USB port for charging the headsets, and lastly a 3.5 millimetre Jack. On the other side is a power button, a Bluetooth pairing button, and both are easy to distinguish from another. Moving onto the audio quality. How do these compare to my Logitech Artemis spectrum snows while the artist’s pro wireless blows my Logitech headset out of the water for overall sound quality, but they’re extremely flat and I didn’t find they had many bases, a tool that said listening to music has been a real pleasure, especially when the headset has two connections allowing me to connect my phone via Bluetooth 4.1 and a 2.4 gigahertz connection.
Simultaneously you’re able to take calls, play music in the background from your phone while still hearing the audio signal coming from the 2.4 gigahertz. Wireless connection is pretty awesome, especially if you want to use discord independently dedicated to just your phone. If I compare these to my sound blaster X seven dark and AKG seven Oh two headphones, the artist pro isn’t as good sound quality wise, although surprisingly close and I never fought. I would see the day where I would be able to monitor my audio levels with a gaming headset while making a video. Okay. Guys, you’ll know to listen to them from the steel series headset. Overall, I do believe it sounds a little bit nasally compared to a lot of other headsets that I’ve tried in the past, but it does have very good noise cancellation.
