Review: ARCTIS 1 (steelseries) Xbox Wired Gaming Headset

ARCTIS 1 Headset ARCTIS 1 steelseries Wired Xbox Headset   Price Paid: $49.99 @ GameStop Devices Tested On: Xbox Series S , Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC, MacBook Pro.  https://steelseries.com/gaming-headsets/arctis-1-xbox Overall Score: 5/10 The Good *Sound Clarity is Good  *Noise Separation Is Good The Bad *Cheap & Ugly Build Quality *Uncomfortable/Unstable *Volume Is Too Low *Passive Soundstage depth is nearly disorienting  *Treble range is below average *Priced higher than headsets that are better  -Price Weighted Heavily- According to Wired, the ARCTIS 1 "feels and sounds more expensive than it is..." which just gives me another reason in a long list of reasons to not pay any attention to their reviews. For the price,  these are well below average. They'll get the job done but not well in some areas. I've used $10 and $20 headsets that are better.   The majority of reviews I've seen on this headset grade them at above average
