Frequently Asked Questions
Can I charge my headset while I'm away from home?
Yes, the magnetic earcups detach easily to reveal a discreetly hidden USB-C port for charging (with the battery inserted) when the Wireless Base Station isn't available. When using at home, this is not needed, as you would simply swap batteries for continuous usage.

How does the battery hot-swap work?
When the current battery is running low, if it's swapped within 8 seconds with the second battery, the headset will automatically power back on.

How does Multi-System Connect work?
The Wireless Base Station has two USB-C ports, which can connect to your PC or console with the provided USB-C to USB-A cables. Navigate the OLED screen menu to switch between active devices. You can also access the menu from your Arctis Nova Pro Wireless headset by pressing in the volume wheel.

What are the connection differences between Arctis Nova Pro Wireless models?
All models come with two direct USB system connections, but if you own an Xbox, only the Nova Pro Wireless for Xbox will allow you to connect via the dedicated Xbox port (the second USB port is flexible for PC, PlayStation 4/5, Switch, Mac).

Can I use headset on-the-go?
Yes, Bluetooth is built into the headset, so you can use the Bluetooth connection in or out
