From the makers of Arctis, the most awarded audio line in gaming, SteelSeries, the original esports brand that fuses gaming and culture, today introduces the special-edition Dragon Arctis Nova 7 series headset. Designed by a collective of SteelSeries designers and product managers with Chinese and Taiwanese heritage, the Dragon Arctis Nova 7 honors their heritage and culture, the traditions of family gatherings and festivals, and celebrates the beginning of the 2024 Lunar New Year.
Centered around a dragon (Lóng), one of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals (Zhōngguó shí’èr shēngxiào dòngwù), the dragon icon has been sculpted with softer edges, giving it a more modern look. The dragon’s body wraps around the Chinese character for ‘dragon’ and sits atop a stack of lucky clouds (xiángyún). Hidden beneath the dragon that is emblazoned on the speaker plates, a circular version of the Chinese character for good fortune (Fú) adorns the ear cups, while the headband takes the shape of a dragon’s scales. The deep red colorway symbolizes prosperity in life and is accented with bold gold symbolizing money and fortune.
Through four years of innovative and meticulous engineering, SteelSeries set out to push boundaries, solve problems for those living a multi-faceted ‘gaming lifestyle’ and reinvent the world’s #1 premium gaming headphones. Whether it’s gaming on the go, listening to Spotify or watching Netflix while commuting on the train or bus, taking a Zoom call and needing to tune out the noise in a shared apartment, workspace, or coffee shop, at the home office with furry kids running around, in the gym or basketball court, playing some Call of Duty MWIII or Mario at home, and so much more… Welcome to the future of audio for a gaming lifestyle.
Elite performance comes standard. The Arctis Nova 7 is equipped with the Nova Acoustic System, which fuses hardware and software to raise the bar over the competition and provide those living a ‘gaming lifestyle’ with a new superpower known as ‘Almighty Audio.’ The combination of custom-designed High Fidelity speaker drivers that offer unparalleled sound purity, plus immersive 360° Spatial Audio for an immersive soundscape, along with the Sonar Audio Software Suite, which features the first pro-grade parametric EQ for gamers and allows them to adjust every individual frequency, provides unparalleled sound customization.
With wireless freedom and Simultaneous Audio, you can listen to two audio streams at the same time with 2.4GHz and Bluetooth, easily swapping between PC, Mac, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, iPhone, Android, and mobile devices with USB-C. Communications are key and the new ClearCast Gen 2’s AI-powered noise cancelation gives users crystal clear comms. Purposely designed for gamers, the bidirectional mic uses the same technology used by Formula 1 teams and silences noise and distractions, including button-mashing and keyboard tapping, co-workers in shared workspaces, family members and pets while working from home, and background noise in coffee shops. Additionally, the mic has been reimagined with a unique design that blends seamlessly into the earcup when fully retracted for a sleek and stylish look for on-the-go.
The special-edition Dragon Arctis Nova 7 will be available for pre-order at select retailers and etailers around the world, including in the Philippines from February 1st to February 15th for Php 11,995
