Wireless connectivity works seamlessly with its included dongle, and I have had zero dropouts or latency issues with it on both PS4 and Nintendo Switch. I originally purchased this headset primarily for the PS4, as I imagined wireless headsets were completely incompatible with the Nintendo Switch, but the headset does in-fact work effortlessly and all the buttons on the headset (Mic Mute On/Off, Volume Dial) work on both systems. Mic quality is excellent as well as audio quality, it’s perfectly balanced and not ridiculously skewed towards bass, and the volume can be raised very high on both consoles if you want. Battery life so far has also been great, it’s something I haven’t had to worry about when using and I only had to charge them once every week out of habit. The headset itself doesn’t feel flimsy and seems decently built, It’s pretty light and is surprisingly comfortable to wear, so much I use it also when I’m on my laptop. The only thing that slightly annoys me is that when I switch playing consoles and want to use the headset on it, I have to get up and unplug the headset dongle and connect it to the console I’m using (say, from the PS4 to the Nintendo Switch). This is pretty much a first world problem, but it’s something I’ve come across every once in a while.
Overall I have to say I’m really loving this headset, if you were on the fence for this thing I really recommend you give it a try.
UPDATE June 2020: It’s been 8 months since I’ve bought this headset, and I just wanted to report back that it has held up ROCK SOLID. This thing is by all means not flimsy, and the battery life has held up incredibly well. I’ve been gaming really long sessions, roughly 5-6 hours long each with friends online, and this thing just keeps going with no issues whatsoever. One of the few purchases I’ve made that I can say was absolutely worth it.
This headset mic is not noise canceling, it in-fact picks up the sound from the headset speakers itself! So, you get reverb through voip which makes it a requirement to use push to talk.
For almost $60 and a brand name you would expect some better padding on the ears, would fix the issue of noise going to mic as well.
Overall this headset fails in comfort and functionality with a premium price.
Build quality is good, the headset does not feel cheap even though construction is mostly plastic. Decent amount of adjustability and earcups swivel to lie flat around the neck or on a desk. Earcup padding is also decent and comfortable to wear for extended gameplay sessions.
I haven't tested compatibility with PC, Switch and Android devices, however, I intend to conduct testing and update this review in the future.
So far, the product is highly recommended.
I tested the Arctis 1 Wireless with the PS4 Pro, Switch and PC and it works great across these platforms. Migration is easy between systems, simple move the dongle to the desired device, power on and you're golden. It is even more intuitive if you pair these with a low profile usb-c to usb-A adapter like these (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07T54754H/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s04?ie=UTF8&psc=1).
Also tried out the eq adjustment software and it is fairly standard. You can adjust among a few preset configurations or make your own custom settings.
Overall a great product and highly recommended. Best value for $99.99 with compatibility with Consoles/PCs/Android devices etc.

That is very unfortunate durability and even if this is a "budget" headset, it still is quite expensive in comparison with many other headsets readily available on Amazon and with Prime shipping, I paid a slight premium excpecting more premium quality but I guess I was wrong.
I tried contacting Steelseries directly through Amazon before having to write this review but I couldn't find anywhere to contact them, so I might have to e-mail their support to either get a replacement part or a refund.
This is a shame really as I really liked how convinient this headset was to use for me, it plugged into all my devices and I am able to take it everywhere, and the mic is actually really high quality but it apparently stops working if u unplug it too much, just a heads up!
Comfy, durable, stylish and they sound incredible.
The battery lasts a good 20 hours on a charge.
Using this on my Switch is a breeze and I can instantly use them with my PS4 by just plugging in the adapter.
The detachable mic is a nice touch too.
But cable is a little short and mic seem a little dodgy sometimes.
Overall is really good tho, so I will recommend.
Thought there was an issue with the mic, but realised connection was not in properly. After that mic worked perfectly.
After going through 4 Xbox headsets in a year I wanted a better investment.
I was skeptical that headphones could compare to my high end home audio system.
I was pleasantly surprised on how much more I can hear footsteps playing first person shooters without the neighborhood hearing me playing War lol
I chose these BC of the comfort and they had a mid range sound stage, not overly bass heavy.
I find a bit of distortion if I have them loud and there is a ton of guns and explosions simultaneously.
It's rare and I haven't been bothered by it yet.
Bass is more than ample, I don't need bass driven directly into my ears.
I found the highs weren't decent, wasn't tinny or too high, in fact I wanted a tiny bit more treble.
When listening to music I was really surprised on how well they sounded, I tried a variety such as rap, metal, EDM and live accoustic. The accoustic guitar was really picked up well and the way tones sounded really good.
I will definitely be listening to music with these as well.
The microphone is loud and clear, good background noise cancelling.
**One note is check your headset volume on your Xbox settings BC it's default to 1/2 volume. I thought something was wrong at first, adjusted that and amazing!👍**
Using the windows “listen” option just produces a slight echo.
This should be build in when you hit the mic switch on.
Sound quality is pretty awesome.
They are pretty comfortable.
The wires are of good quality and soft.
I just don’t understand how monitor wasn’t build in for the price.
It was plug and play for me. My motherboard didn't have USB-C port so I used the dongle, didn't bother me as it hangs out in the back. It also works on my Galaxy S10 Plus for sound at least, haven't tried the mic on my phone. I bought this to use as a wireless pair when I roll around in my game room and don't have to worry about yanking the cable. I already own an external mic. The EQ is pretty useful and the quality is superb to me. Bass is there but not overpowering. Comfort wise it starts off clampy but cushioned enough for 3 hours+ use. Battery is good enough for my sessions.
My only criticism would be that they do not cancel much noise from my surroundings while wearing. Further, sound does escape the ear cups so those near you may hear some of what you're hearing.
I jammed COD MW with these for a month before my cat chewed thru the wires and I had to replace with the arctis 3 (fully detachable wires for only $15 more).
Conectividad: Se conectan muy rápido con tan solo conectar el dispositivo que trae y encenderlos.
Retraso en el sonido: Jamás he experimentado ningún retraso en el sonido, funcionan perfecto en ese sentido.
Calidad de Sonido: La calidad es muy buena, bajos decentes y un sonido limpio en la mayoría de los casos.
Batería: La batería dura mucho, mas de 20 horas.
Nintendo: Funcionan perfecto, para mi son la mejor solución que hay en el mercado. Funcionan tanto en el Dock como directamente en el Switch.
Calidad de construcción: A pesar de tener muchas piezas de plástico, el headset es muy resistente y se nota la calidad.
Comodidad: He pasado horas jugando o trabajando y realmente son cómodos. No calientan mucho y no dejan dolor.
It has some great quality of life stuff, but you need to download the software to control some of the festures. I also love how if I forget to turn on the headset, if the USB dongle is connected sound won't play at all through the tv/monitor. I also really love the battery life. I can use this for 10+ hours no problem for about 2 days before needing to recharge.
Overall this might be best value/money headset I've owned or used.
