SteelSeries announced a brand new headset with some really cool features today. The Arctis 3 Bluetooth headset will allow users to simultaneously connect to a Bluetooth and wired audio source. This is ideal for Nintendo Switch users that have to use the Nintendo smartphone app for voice chat. The new headset allows for chat or music connections through apps like Discord over Bluetooth while also receiving wired audio connections with PC or consoles like PS4, Xbox and Nintendo Switch. 

SteelSeries Audio Category Manager, Brian Fallon says, "This is the first time that you can simultaneously have wired gaming audio and wireless Bluetooth. Bluetooth is incredibly useful for connecting wirelessly to mobile devices for chat and music, but as most gamers know, Bluetooth has too much latency for gaming. That is why this is a wired headset for gaming and Bluetooth for everything else.”

The Arctis 3 Bluetooth is available now at SteelSeries official website for $129.99.
