After some brief teasing over on Twitter, today CD Projekt Red and SteelSeries have announced a new partnership, introducing the Cyberpunk 2077 Headset collection. The new set of audio gear includes two variations of the Arctis 1 Wireless headset. There is also a set of accessory pack, so you can customise an existing Arctis Pro headset in Cyberpunk style.
First on the list is the Arctis 1 Wireless ‘Johnny Silverhand Edition' for Xbox. This version is designed with Johnny Silverhand's rockerboy style and his cyberarm in mind. This is a 4-in-1 headset, featuring USB-C connectivity and a wireless dongle that lets you switch from Xbox to other Bluetooth enabled platforms. So you could use this headset with other supported devices too, like a PC.
It uses a 2.4GHz wireless connection for low-latency and has the same 40mm neodymium speaker drivers as the Arctis 9X, which has made plenty of ‘best of' gaming headset lists in the last year.
The Arctis 1 Wireless ‘Netrunner Edition' is similar, but does not come with wireless compatibility with Xbox One- although it can still be plugged in via an Xbox controller's 3.5mm headphone jack. As you can see in the images above, this edition is inspired by the netrunner class, which you will be utilising in Cyberpunk 2077 for hacking.
Finally, we have the Arasaka, Militech and Kang Tao Arctis Pro Accessory Packs. As the name implies, these are accessory kits for the SteelSeries Arctis Pro series of headsets, allowing you to spruce them up with designs inspired by the three major corporations that tower over Night City. Each pack includes a Cyberpunk 2077 headband and two new magnetic earplates . These are compatible witth the SteelSeries Arctis Pro, Arctis Pro + GameDAC and the Arctis Pro Wireless.
The Arctis 1 Wireless Johnny Silverhand and Netrunner editions will be available soon in the UK for £109.99. The Arctis Pro Accessory Packs will cost £39.99.

KitGuru Says: We've got limited edition Cyberpunk 2077 consoles and now we've got headsets to go along with them. I wonder if we'll be seeing more themed peripherals in the weeks to come. Are many of you still looking forward to Cyberpunk 2077 in September? What do you think of the new limited edition headsets?
