Aspiring pro gamers and esports competitors will want to check out SteelSeries Prime, the new range of accessories/peripherals from the global leader in gaming. The new headsets and mice were co-designed with input from over 100 of the world’s leading competitive professional players, focusing on the things that matter most – being lightweight, durable, and customisable for personal preferences. Among the co-designers were esport teams FaZe Clan, Red Bull OG, SpaceStation, Heroic and Enlife. The SteelSeries Prime lineup will be available in Australia from mid-July. Let’s take a look at the range:
Arctis Prime Headset
Described as the rally car of headsets, Arctis Prime is elevated by all-new noise-isolating leatherette ear cushions. The cushions are designed to crush background noise while high fidelity audio drivers deliver maximum detail separation at the highest levels of gameplay. The Arctis Prime features lightweight, durable metal construction, a noise-cancelling Discord-certified mic, detachable 3.5mm cable, and on-headset volume and mute controls.
Locally, the Arctis Prime headset will go for RRP $169.
Note: We originally wrote that the Arctis Prime was wireless. This is incorrect. The headset requires a wired connection capable when using the detachable cable.
The SteelSeries Prime mouse has a battle-tested shape meant for sustained comfort at the highest levels of play. Its lightweight form factor weighs in at only 69g to reduce hand fatigue when lifted. The durable design is said to withstand the most intense wear and tear, and a new textured matte finish ensures a non-slip grip. A TrueMove Pro sensor provides esports pro performance, and onboard customisation makes selecting settings an easy task.
The SteelSeries Prime will be available in Australia for RRP $119.
The Prime+ mouse takes the battle-tested shape, hyper-durable design and new textured matte finish and adds full onboard customisation that requires no additional software. Its lightweight form factor weighs in at 71g, and a TrueMove Pro+ sensor provides pro esports performance. The big difference that elevates this mouse over the standard Prime is the additional sensor to detect lift-off distance.
Prime+ will be available for $149.
SteelSeries Prime Wireless
The Prime Wireless mouse takes all the features mentioned above and gives you the freedom of wireless play. SteelSeries describes the battery as best-in-class and rates it for over 100 hours between charges. Fast charging ensures that there won’t be much downtime. Prime Wireless weighs just 80g. A TrueMove air sensor provides performance with true 1-to-1 tracking, and onboard customisation makes selecting settings an easy process.
The Prime Wireless goes for RRP $229.
The SteelSeries Prime line of accessories will be available in Australia from mid-July 2021.
