The GameDAC is the big addition to the Arctis lineup here, a small USB device about the size of a small candy bar, that sits between the headset and your PC. It’s very similar to the device we saw on the Arctis 5, but more full featured. On the front is a volume control knob and a small monochrome LCD screen that displays various information. On screen and built in is a graphic equalizer with various presets, volume balancing between game and chat audio, and various configuration options to get the most out of your headset including enabling DTS X 2.0. Developers can even tap into the screen to display in-game information, for instance, Discord will display the name of the person currently speaking on the DAC. This is super convenient and I’m a big fan.

The other big upgrade is what’s in the actual headsets, the drivers for the speakers themselves. Sporting a frequency response of 10Hz to 40kHz, the Arctis Pro features one of the widest ranges of sound reproduction in the gaming headset market. For comparison the A40 line from Astro bottoms out around 15Hz and tops out around 30kHz. What does this mean? Deeper and more accurate lows and richer mids and highs. What this yields in reality is an overall more balanced sound experience, not something that’s too bassy or too tinny.

The full list of games that will be on sale and how much they'll be discounted hasn't been revealed as of the time of this post going live, but in their announcement for the sale, it looks like at the very least you'll be able to pick up Monster Hunter: World and Destiny 2 at a reduced price. [Ed. Note: We'll update this post with the co-op titles on sale and how much once that info is available]. In addition to a host (300+) of games being available at low-ish prices, Microsoft is also offering some discounts on their Xbox One hardware. You can pick up an Xbox One S with a 500 Gb hard drive for $199 or 1 TB Xbox One S bundles for $249, while The Xbox One X will be marked down to $449. If you want to hop on Xbox Live Gold for a month, and/or check out a month of Xbox Game Pass, both of those will be just $1. Finally, Xbox Wireless Controllers will be $10 off and the custom design controllers will be permanently reduced to $69.99.

First let’s talk about the tech specs of this monitor. The first thing you’ll notice is an 1800R curve to the display, this isn’t a “flat panel” in the traditional sense. The numeric rating for curvature has to do with the radius of the display if it were to extend out - the higher the number the more curved the display. What does this mean for gamers? In essence due to the size and curve of the monitor the display “wraps” around your peripheral vision giving you a much more immersive experience. The adjustable stand provides a solid base for the monitor, with a tripod like setup, and there’s standard 100x100 VESA mounts for wall or monitor arm mounting.
