Everyone has different preferences and priorities, so to make choosing easier we have attempted to give a frank review of the products. Let's start with the SteelSeries Arctis 5 (2019 Edition).

The mic clarity is really something to note. Your teammates and enemies can hear everything so clearly. The sound is good as well and the surround sound is impressive.
