Need an audio upgrade? These Black Friday deals on gaming headsets sound pretty good.
By on
With Black Friday sales kicking off officially, we’ve rounded up the best gaming headset deals for PS5, Xbox Series X, Switch, and PC. An essential part of any gaming setup, headsets are perfect for creating a deeper sense of immersion, communicating with friends online, and giving some measure of peace to a household that doesn’t want to hear a Locust trooper being ripped in half during a round of Gears 5 multiplayer.
Dedicated console headsets bring their own unique charm to the gaming table–Sony and Microsoft have their own distinct audio hardware–while a number of third-party devices offer superlative sound, microphones that are great for in-game chatter, and even multi-platform flexibility.
All the heavyweights of high-quality audio have something to offer, from Razer through to Logitech. Wired and wireless options aren’t in short supply, and if you’re looking for a few ideas on which one to buy then check out our guide to the best PC headsets of 2021, best PS5 headsets, best Xbox headsets, and best Nintendo Switch Bluetooth headphones.
Our pick for the best gaming headset regardless of which platform you’re gaming on, the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is on sale for $50 off at Amazon. This wireless headset supports THX 7.1 spatial surround sound and features impactful 50mmdrivers as well as Razer’s HyperClear Supercardioid mic. It’s capable of connecting wirelessly or wired with the included 3.5mm cord.
For anyone with anger management issues, Astro’s A10 is a durable headset that can soak up abuse and still feel like a premium device thanks to its solid construction. Besides being tough as nails, the hardware inside of it is specifically tuned for gaming to deliver dialogue, music, and in-game sounds as developers intended, it can easily fit around multiple makes of VR headsets, and the uni-directional microphone provides crystal-clear communication.
A headset with first-class aesthetics, the Corsair Virtuoso is a collection of machined aluminum, quality memory foam earpads, and a lightweight headband. It also offers a delightful output of audio with precisely tuned 50mm high-density neodymium speaker drivers, which provide 7.1 surround sound with a frequency range of 20hz-40,000hz. A number that should put a smile on any audiophile gamer’s face.
For a more contemporary Corsair device, look no further than its Void headset. The angular design houses custom-tuned 50mm high-density neodymium audio drivers with an expanded frequency range of 20Hz-30,000Hz and can connect wirelessly to your PC or PS4/PS5 using low-latency 2.4GHz wireless with the included USB adapter. An omnidirectional microphone comes with a flip-up mute function and a built-in LED mute indicator, while the aluminum construction should ensure years of use.
For those of you who are on a budget, the HyperX Cloud offers plenty of bang for your buck. A solid sound output can be expected, but the big draw here is an emphasis on comfort with this headset’s memory foam ear cushions and an adjustable headband that provides stability.
For an even bigger saving on a headset, the HyperX Cloud Stinger is an acceptable device with a more limited range of functionality. Decent audio is enhanced by above-average comfort, and if you’ve been looking for a budget headset on either Xbox One or Nintendo Switch, this particular model is compatible with both consoles.
A regal crown of plush materials and lightweight construction, the Logitech G Pro X offers a beastly selection of 7.1 and object-based surround sound for greater in-game positional, distance, and object awareness during gameplay. It’s also a device that is being continually updated through Logitech’s software hub, and if you prefer to have multiple profiles for various games, the onboard software allows for several setups to be saved and selected at any given time.
Razer established its brand with affordable headsets that offered premium-quality sound, and the wired Kraken is no exception to this tradition. Custom-tuned 50 mm drivers provide 7.1 surround sound for positional audio, gel-infused cushions prevent overheating, and a built-in analog volume control wheel and mic mute switch makes fine-tuning your experience easier than ever.
One of the most popular headsets on the market, the SteelSeries Arctis 7 earned a positive reputation amongst gamers for its incredible audio quality, absurd battery life, and a comfortable construction that makes all-day gaming a breeze. One other feature that made it so popular is its Discord-certified clear-cast microphone that delivers studio-quality voice clarity and background noise cancellation.
A Jack of all trades approach to sound is the name of the game with this SteelSeries headset, which aims to have quality sound, comfort, and style on all gaming platforms. Like the Arctis 7, it also has a terrific microphone to make your in-game communication sound crystal-clear, while the luxurious construction makes it easy to wear all day.

Here are a few fast, easy ways to link and unlink Spotify from PS4 or PS5.
While it’s fun to listen to personalized playlists when gaming, a Spotify Premium account can only play on a maximum of three devices, which adds up fast. Additionally, if multiple people listen to music from the same account on different devices, they may experience audio interruptions. Therefore, you may need to shuffle around your linked devices and unlink your PlayStation console from time to time, especially if you’ve upgraded to a new gaming console.

Artists Show Off Slick Concept for Xbox Series X Elite Console – GameRant

Published

on

The Xbox Series X will inevitably receive an updated model, and one creator shows off their design of what it may just look like.
The Xbox Series X is the current flagship console for Microsoft, and one of the most powerful consoles ever made. Like previous generations, the Xbox Series X is bound to receive a sleeker new model, perhaps even with upgraded specs, and one content creator has shared what they think it may look like.
When Microsoft revealed the Xbox Series X in 2019, its design was attention grabbing, and some might say for the wrong reasons. There is nothing outwardly strange or offensive about the design, but its size, shape, and color immediately saw comparisons between the Xbox Series X and refrigerators. Micosoft saw this as a great marketing opportunity, however, releasing an offical Xbox Series X mini-fridge that has quickly sold out practically everywhere. With the last generation of consoles, Microsoft released the Xbox One S and Xbox One X towards the end of the Xbox One's lifecycle.

A YouTuber by the name of Concept Creator has designed a mock-up of what the next Xbox Series X console variant may look like. Originally covered by Ilse Jurrien of LetsGoDigital, graphic designer Jermaine Smit of Concept Creator trims away the fat of the original Xbox Series X design, making it much more slender, sleeker, and recognizable, thanks to some key implementations. Size-wise, the Xbox Series X Elite, as Jurrien is calling it, evokes the jump from the Xbox One to the Xbox One X but to a much higher degree, with the Elite nearly shrinking the original Series X in half. The most eye-catching change of the Elite is the sharp, raised cross-piece that cuts across the top and front of the console, with LEDs that glow Xbox green on both sides.
Despite the additions, many of the key Xbox Series X design features are retained in the Elite's mock-up. On the left side of the console is the disc-tray, power button, and four USB ports that appear smoothly chiseled out of the console's body. Likewise, the signature venting that appears on the top of the original Xbox Series X returns on the right portions of the Elite, providing a nice blend of textures that dissuade easy comparisons to DVR boxes. Concept Creator's Xbox Series X Elite design also has a white variant, channeling the design of the Xbox Series S, the original console's little sister.
As it stands, not much (if anything) is known about the next iteration of the Xbox Series X. Microsoft's next family of consoles have been out for over a year, and while the Xbox Series S sold very well during Black Friday this year, still not everyone who desires one of these systems has been able to get one yet. With that in mind, while it is fun to think about the future of these systems and what they may look like, Microsoft's priority should still be in making its current lineup more available. Unless the Xbox Series X Elite magically doesn't require microchips, it will likely fall into the same issues as the current console lineup.
