The Denmark-based brand SteelSeries, is dropping a new line of peripherals dubbed Prime.
SteelSeries’ Prime collection features three new mice and a minimalist take on the Arctis headset. The brand developed this new line of peripherals alongside top esports players from around the world, according to SteelSeries. With an emphasis on substance over style, the Prime line aims to give players the best no-frills tools to secure wins.
SteelSeries loads each Prime mouse with its new Prestige optical magnetic (OM) switches. These proprietary switches blend optical switch performance with the longevity of thicker switch springs and magnetic tension. This combination of components results in a 100 million click lifespan, according to SteelSeries. For comparison, Razer’s optical switches are clocked at having a 70 million click lifespan.
The Arctis Prime headset pops the company’s Hi-Fi drivers into a no-frills iteration of its flagship headset. SteelSeries outfits the Arctis Prime with its new noise-isolating leatherette earpads, a retractable ClearCast microphone, detachable cable, on-ear controls, and the usual elastic headband for comfort. The headset also features a lightweight aluminum and steel alloy build for durability.
