What’s the difference between it and console edition

Console edition only includes the 4-pole cable and doesn’t include the longer dual 3.5 cable used for PC gaming. Otherwise, the specs and drivers are the same.

does it work with ps4?

As long as you have the ones compatible with PC and PS4.

Will this work on the Xbox 360?

it says it should and all the software says it does.

Just ordered the Arctis 3(all platform edition) & they don’t work at all on my ps4. I plugged them into my controller & I get no sound, nothing at all

The only thing I can think of is to make sure your volume is up. I know it seems obvious but on my arctis 7, I have my pc volume on max, and my volume dial on about half. That’s all I can really say, since I don’t have a ps4.

Is the quality the same with these and the console edition? I bought the console edition and I game on pc lol.

The quality and headset are the same. The only difference is the cables it comes with.

does the arctis 3 have surround sound with all platforms?

No, this product only supports Windows Sonic Surround Sound. So, for XB1 and Windows 10 PCs you will have surround sound, but other consoles will not.

How does the arctis 3 (wired) sound with an android phone?

Very quiet. I tried taking a phone call on them once and it was hard to hear the other person.

I can’t get this to work on my PC. What outlets on the computer do the two cables get plugged in to?

the Y Splitter goes where your Motherboard on the Back of UR PC if you plug in front panel will sound Bad but Plug behind PC in the Light Green And Pink colored outlets don’t use USB use the Y splitter, that the question I was going to ask because for some reason my front panel headset to plug it don’t want to work, plus the sound when using the Y splitter will offer the Dual Channel meaning Left And Right better experience when Gaming.

Is this product wireless?

No. Both Arctis 3 & 5 are wired. Arctis 7 (2019 edition) is an excellent choice for wireless!

How’s the gaming sound quality for shooters games and sound control?

Great sound quality. I stream COD daily & I love that I can hear everything crystal clear during gameplay.

Will this work with an oculus quest?

I have no idea if the Quest has a USB connector it would work but the dongle has a twelve-inch chord on it.

does 7.1 work on Xbox?

I use this for ps4 and they are amazing! Not sure about Xbox. I’m pretty sure they have a version that works for it if not these. Price and quality is spot on

Am I able to change the earcups?


Can you hear yourself through the headset playing ps4?

No, there is no echo in the background. Clear sound works well.

Do they work/have a long enough cable that will reach the switch from where the person is sitting, in TV mode?

The cable is not long enough for this.
