This year’s Black Friday extravaganza is nearly upon us. Amazon have already kicked off their Black Friday deals in earnest, adding loads of brand new Black Friday gaming headset deals to their bag o’ discounts. It’s not just Amazon who have started their Black Friday celebrations, though, so if you’re looking to grab a gaming headset on the cheap before the big rush on November 27th, you’re in the right place, as I’ve gathered all the best deals on today’s best gaming headsets right here.
To help make things nice and easy, I’ve separated out our Black Friday headset deals into wired and wireless headset deals, which will hopefully make it a little easier for you to find what you want as quickly as possible. Just click the links off to the side and you’ll be whisked down to the appropriate part of the page.
Naturally, there aren’t a huge number of deals here right now, but I’ll be updating this page with more early Black Friday gaming headset deals as and when they become available, so make sure to keep this page in your bookmarks if you’re looking to pick up a bargain over the next couple of weeks.
It’s not just gaming headsets that are going cheap over Black Friday, either. For more Black Friday deals, check out our regularly updated hub pages below:
The best Black Friday gaming headset deals (UK):
The wireless version of Steelseries’ entry level Arctis headset, the Arctis 1 Wireless isn’t just a comfy gaming headset for PC, but its flexible set of connections mean you can also use it with everything else – including the Switch thanks to its portable USB-C dongle. Even better, this year’s Black Friday deal matches its Prime Day deal, making it a great time to get this headset for its lowest ever price.
The wired version of the excellent Steelseries Arctis 7, the Arctis 5 is one of the comfiest gaming headsets around. Prices have been a bit all over the shop this year, but this is still £15 cheaper than its previous lowest price of £90. It doesn’t quite match its previous Black Friday 2019 price of £70, but this time you also get a voucher for 40% off three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to help make up for it.
An ultra lightweight version of Razer’s popular Kraken headset, the Kraken X is one of the better budget gaming headsets you can buy right now – especially when it’s £15 cheaper than usual.
- Razer Kraken (Mercury) – £40 from Ebuyer (down from £80)
- Razer Kraken (Quartz) – £40 from Ebuyer (down from £80)
The Kraken wasn’t on sale over Prime Day in the UK (only in the US), so this one is a little easier to judge. Indeed, apart from a very brief dip to £47 for a week in August, the Kraken has been at least £55 ever since April. Amazon have the black version for £41, whereas Ebuyer only have it for £50, but if you’re after the cheapest price and don’t mind white or pink, these are the best deals going right now.
The Kraken Tournament has now sold out on Amazon, but Ebuyer still have Razer’s 7.1 surround sound gaming headset listed for a pretty reasonable price. On most sites, it’s been at least £70 for the past four months, making it a great time to snap one up – especially now it’s only another £10 over the regular Kraken.
Another supremely comfortable gaming headset (currently on my testing bench), the HyperX Cloud Alpha S has cost at least £100 for most of this year, making its debut into double figures an event worth celebrating. This flexible 7.1 surround sound headset has never been cheaper, making this another great bargain if you want a no-nonsense gaming headset that you can use for hours on end.
A new all-time low for HyperX’s very good wireless gaming headset, if only just. While it’s normally £150, there have been two periods this year where it’s dropped to £128 – back in May, and again at the end of August. Still, even if it only beats its previous record by a single pound, it’s still a good price for this wireless headset.
EPOS Sennheiser headsets are some of the most expensive gaming headsets around, but Overclockers’ early Black Friday deals have shaved over £130 off their flagship headset, as well as its accompanying amplifier which has its own dedicated DAC for superior sound quality. It’s quite a bulky headset, though, and the quality of its sound is very heavily biased toward the bass end of the spectrum, too, which may not be to everyone’s tastes.
Wireless gaming headset deals:
If you’ve ever wanted to ‘feel’ your game’s audio, Razer’s HyperSense-enabeld Nari Ultimate Wireless headset is the one for you. Thanks to its haptic feedback technology, the Nari Ultimate Wireless will vibrate along with the music and sound effects. Not for everyone, but it’s certainly different.
The best Black Friday gaming headset deals (US):
- Logitech G432 – $40 from Newegg (down from $80) – LIVE FROM NOV 23rd
My favourite budget gaming headset, the Logitech G432 will be down to just $40 on November 23rd, matching Best Buy’s previous early Black Friday deal on it from earlier this month.
- Corsair HS60 Pro – $40 from Newegg (down from $70) – LIVE FROM NOV 26th
A slightly older (and wired) version of Corsair’s excellent HS70 headset, this is another great deal for those after a top notch budget gaming headset.
Wireless gaming headset deals:
The 7.1 surround sound version of HyperX’s popular wireless gaming headset, the Cloud Stinger Core has a battery life of around 17 hours and comes with both 3.5mm and USB connections so you can use it with a variety of different devices.
How to get the best Black Friday gaming headset deal
There are a couple of key things to consider when buying a new gaming headset. Good audio quality is obviously a given, but finding a comfortable headset is arguably even more important – after all, you’re going to be wearing this thing for several hours at a time, so it’s no good if something sounds great but ends up becoming a medieval head vice after 30 minutes. That’s why I prioritise comfort in my gaming headset reviews above all else.
The other thing is a good microphone. Again, it’s no good having a great-sounding gaming headset, but your voice descending into a crackly mess every time you want to chat to your mates when you’re playing online. Naturally, these are hard things to judge just by looking at a headset’s specs page, but if you have a read of my gaming headset reviews, then you’ll find a detailed breakdown of how it performs.
