What's the difference between the Arctis Nova 1 and the 1P/1X?
Aside from a few slight cosmetic/color changes, the only difference is that the Nova 1 includes a dual 3.5mm 'Y' cable for compatibility with some PCs.
Can my chat hear me talking when I answer a phone call over Bluetooth?
No, when starting a call over Bluetooth the microphone automatically switches over, muting your mic to the chat.
Does the microphone still work when it's retracted?
The microphone will still pickup sound while retracted, but since it's a directional mic, it needs to be extended and in close proximity to your mouth to produce the best quality of sound.
What's the difference between the Arctis Nova 7 and 7P?
The Arctis Nova 7 includes a ChatMix dial on the right earcup, which directly integrates with SteelSeries Sonar software on PC to balance game and chat audio. The Arctis Nova 7P also has a dial on the right earcup, but it's used for adjusting sidetone (mic monitoring) on the fly
