by Troy Gloski 05 Feb 2023

KontrolFreek is your gold chest for the best controller upgrades to help you maximize in-game accuracy and control, but your controller isn’t the only accessory that can make or break you in modern multiplayer games. Like adding KontrolFreeks to your controller, upgrading your headset is a fast way to greatly improve your gaming experience. You need a good headset to be able to clearly communicate in games where you have teammates. A great headset, however, will enable you to not only optimize your audio experience to immerse yourself more fully in whatever games you play, but and you’ll also be able to hear and locate your enemies quicker and more accurately, which will help you win more!

In December of 2020 KontrolFreek joined forces with SteelSeries, global gaming peripherals masters, with the goal of maximizing our ability to provide the best gaming experiences and products to console gamers. Now, we are extremely proud to offer SteelSeries Arctis Nova 1P, Arctis Nova 1X, Arctis Nova 7P, and Arctis Nova 7X headsets for PS5 and Xbox on

Whether you have a great gaming headset, a good headset, or you play using your TV audio and controller mic (we all have that one friend), we think everyone should check out the amazing features of these SteelSeries Arctis Nova headsets. If you have a great headset, you should consider the seemingly endless battery life, fast charging, and easy to use audio customization options offered with the Arctis Nova 7X and Arctis Nova 7P. These headsets boast a 38-hour wireless battery life, but we swear we’ve used ours for work and gaming for a month without charging it.

If you have any good headset, you will immediately notice the incredible sound quality, comfort, and durability of any of these Arctis Nova headsets. They don’t use cheap plastic pieces that can easily break, leaving you with a wonky headset or in need of another replacement. We confess, we had a whole drawer full of half-broken headsets from high school that we kept around just in case our headset ever broke and we needed something to be able to communicate with our fireteam in the middle of a Destiny 2 raid or something. Those fears and that drawer are no more. We threw those old headsets in the trash after using our Arctis 7P for 2 years with no issues. Lastly, if you are that one friend that plays multiplayer games with with their TV Audio and a controller mic: we love you but please invest in your friends’ ears. Arctis Nova 1P and Arctis Nova 1X for PS5 and Xbox are a steal at $59.99 on These are high-end audio headsets with a noise cancelling mic and superior comfort. Your ears will be thanking you, your teammates will love you, and you will enjoy playing more. We promise.

We’re going to further break down the amazing features of these headsets so you feel confident in which one is right for you and why you should upgrade your audio game.
