CHICAGO – April 3, 2017 – SteelSeries, the fastest growing major PC gaming headset brand in the US*, today proudly announced that its Arctis headsets received the prestigious “Red Dot” award. The jury reached its decision after assessing thousands of products from all over the world. SteelSeries created an outstanding design for the Arctis Headset line that the expert committee for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017 has recognized with the internationally sought-after seal of quality.
“Our Danish heritage has never been more apparent than in the creation of the Arctis headset line – where every choice made for building a superior headset directly affected the look and feel,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO. “Simplicity is what makes this headset truly a force to be reckoned with – the questions asked and choices made were hard but simple – find materials that impact comfort, choose shapes that improve function and stop thinking about a gaming product as a visual stereotype.”
The significance of the international design competition, Red Dot Award: Product Design, is well established internationally. For more than 60 years, an expert team has been awarding the seal of quality for good design and innovation to the outstanding designs of the year.
“The Red Dot winners are pursuing the right design strategy,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award. “They have recognized that good design and economic success go hand in hand. The award by the critical Red Dot jury documents their high design quality and is indicative of their successful design policy.”
The Arctis 3, Arctis 5, and Arctis 7 gaming headsets are now available at Best Buy or SteelSeries for $79.99, $99.99, and $149.99, respectively. Arctis headband accessories are available now exclusively at https://steelseries.com/arctis for $14.99.
