I had a chance to check out the Arctis 7 headphones from SteelSeries and came away quite impressed. The ski goggle headband was definitely one of the most comfortable I’ve ever worn, and its inclusion allows for added customization. Today, SteelSeries has announced some additional headband options for the Arctis line of headphones, with several artists on board and a vote to determine the design that will be released next.
The designs up for vote were created by select artists from Design by Humans, a collection of artists from around the world creating graphic tees, phone cases, wall art prints, and more. The selected designs are inspired by gaming and feature some really cool designs. There are at least four that I’d really like to vote for personally.
Voting is available now through March 23rd, and you can pick your favorite at SteelSeries.com/HeadbandVote. Tell us about your favorite design in the comment section below, or on Google+, Facebook, or Twitter.

SteelSeries Unveils Bold, New Headband Accessories for Arctis Headset Line
Gaming and Art collide with Design by Humans and the Artist Series collection of vibrant and inspired headband designs
CHICAGO – March 9, 2017 – SteelSeries, the fastest growing major PC gaming headset brand in the US*, today unveiled a bold line of headband accessories for the Arctis gaming headset line. In partnership with artists and designers, SteelSeries offers a full line of original headband designs featuring bold colors and gaming-inspired designs that transform the Arctis into uniquely beautiful statement-making headsets.
“Inspired by the artistry of game designers and the passion of street artists, the Arctis headbands represent our belief that gaming and the culture it has curated is beautiful and expressive,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO. “The Arctis design and vision comes fully to life with the headbands. We partnered with world-renowned artists, along with our own designers and engineers to bring accessories that can transform an Arctis into something wildly unique while still maintaining the fact that they look better than any other gaming headset on the market.”
The Artist Collection
As part of the Artist Series collection, SteelSeries worked with acclaimed artists Lauren Asta and ThankYouX for unique and one-of-a-kind designs. Asta splits her time between San Francisco and the home of SteelSeries HQ: Chicago. Her large, striking murals are inspired by the communities of those cites, and her Artist Series headband represents her love of the gaming community. ThankYouX made a name for himself on the streets of Los Angeles with his colorful and iconic spray paint stencils. To create his artist series headband, ThankYouX drew inspiration directly from the Arctis headsets.
SteelSeries has partnered with select artists from Design by Humans to create an exclusive series of headbands all inspired by gaming and the culture it has created. Out of these 9 unique designs, the gaming community will have the opportunity to choose which design will be available next. The community can cast their vote at: https://steelseries.com/headbandvote
