Black Friday 2019: All the best PC gaming deals

There are still a couple of weeks to go before this year's Black Friday bonanza, but some retailers have already started getting in on the sales frenzy action. Technically, Black Friday itself is November 29th this year, but as has now become tradition in the world of Black Friday deals, any time between now and the day itself is pretty much fair game as far…

Black Friday headset deals: The best gaming headsets at the best prices

That most special day of deals is so very nearly here I can practically hear the crowds of the headset deals hungry masses banging on shop windows as we speak - that's right, it's almost time for Black Friday. There are just two weeks to go now until all of this year's best Black Friday headset deals are upon us, making it a great time…

Antlion’s ModMic Wireless shows other headset mics how it’s done

Gaming headsets are all well and good for barking at your mates when you're playing games online, but I'm willing to bet a fair few of you have a separate favourite pair of headphones for listening to music with as well. After all, even the [block id="604477" title="Best gaming headset"]s aren't often fit to be seen in public, nor are they necessarily compatible with any…

Razer resurrect their classic RGB mouse mat (along with some spoooky deals)

Razer have brought their original FireFly RGB mouse mat back from the dead today, making it brighter and thinner than ever before. Indeed, Razer say the FireFly V2 is now the brightest RGB mouse mat in their entire line-up of rainbow-trimmed surfaces, thanks in no small part to its 19 lighting zones. The £50 / $50 hard mat also has a built-in cable catch to…

Sennheiser’s GSP 370 looks set to become the wireless headset king with 100 hours of battery life

There's nothing worse than having your wireless gaming headset run out of juice mid-game, but the new Sennheiser GSP 370 should hopefully hold off the arrival of that sudden, deathly silence a bit longer thanks to its incredible-sounding 100+ hours of battery life. That's over 6x longer than Sennheiser's own GSP 670, which currently costs a whopping £300 / $350. Not bad for a £169…

Best gaming headset 2019: Our top wired and wireless headsets for PC

With monitor speakers getting weaker and weaker, one of the best ways to make your games sound as good as they look is to buy a gaming headset with a built-in microphone. There are plenty to choose from, too, so I've rounded up the very best gaming headsets around today to help you sort the symphonic wheat from the aural chaff. To make it onto…

Sennheiser GSP 670 review: A wireless gaming headset that’s scared of letting its hair down

When a £300 / $350 gaming headset like the Sennheiser GSP 670 arrives on my desk, I expect breathtaking audio that blasts the waxy cobwebs clean out of my ear canal. I want, nay, demand perfection at this end of the audio spectrum, mostly so I can help feel justified in myself for spending such an obscene amount of money on a pair of headphones.…

Razer Kraken X review: So close, yet so far

The Razer Kraken X is the third £50 / $50 gaming headset I've tried in almost as many weeks, and by jolly is it a hard one to judge. Compared to the similarly priced Steelseries Arctis 1, it has a much clearer, more detailed sound when playing games, but even its ultralight, 250g frame can't beat the supreme weightlessness of its Arctis rival. It is,…

Logitech G432 review: A brilliant budget gaming headset

Over the last week or so, I've developed a love-hate relationship with the Logitech G432. I love it because it's by far and away a much better gaming headset than the similarly priced Steelseries Arctis 1, and I'd probably even go as far as saying it's arguably the [block id="604477" title="Best gaming headset"] I've tested around the £50 / $50 price mark. Its clear, natural…

Steelseries Arctis 1 review: So, so comfy

Until Logitech's G Pro X gaming headset came along last month, Steelseries' Arctis 7 had been sitting unchallenged at the top of my [block id="604477" title="Best gaming headset"] list for absolutely yonks. I still have a big soft spot for the Arctis 7 - it's still the best wireless headset you can buy right now, after all, as well as one of the most comfortable…

HP Omen’s ear-cooling gaming headset returns as the even more brilliantly named Mindframe Prime

By far one of the best hardware announcements to come out of last year's Gamescom was HP's ear-cooling Omen Mindframe headset. The name was just pure, unbridled brilliance, and its chilly, sweat-blasting thermoelectric ear cups were novel and worked surprisingly well in practice, even if its suspension-style headband didn't quite hold up comfort-wise once I got one in for review. Now, the Mindframe is back…

Logitech G Pro X review: Make way for our new best gaming headset

It had to happen eventually. After an incredible 18 month stint at the top of our best gaming headset list, the Steelseries Arctis 7 must now give up its throne to the brand-new Logitech G Pro X headset. What a thing this is. Not only is this a great-sounding gaming headset, but it's also incredibly comfortable and has arguably the best quality microphone I've ever…

Turtle Beach Elite Atlas review: The pro headset that drops the ball

Turtle Beach struck [block id="604477" title="Best gaming headset"] gold with their mid-range Atlas Three, and now it's the turn of their top-end PC headset, the Elite Atlas - and you know it's the big expensive one because it says things like 'pro performance' and 'designed with leading esports teams' on the front of the box. Indeed, at a princely £85 / $100, the Elite Atlas…

Roccat Renga Boost review: A great open-backed headset

If you asked me to guess the weight of Roccat's new Renga Boost gaming headset, I would swear blind that it's never going to beat the 210g Roccat Noz gaming headset, because, well, just look at the thing. Its 50mm audio drivers are way bigger and chunkier than the Noz's skinny little ear muffs, and even the fold-down microphone has a thicker, more substantial boom…

Roccat Noz review: An ultralight gaming headset that doesn’t carry enough weight

At just 210g, the Roccat Noz is one of the lightest gaming headsets I've worn for quite some time. It's also one of Roccat's least flashy gaming headsets as well, as you won't find a single LED on this £60 / $70 headset, or even their usual giant lion logo draped around the side of the ear cup. Instead, you just get a plain, black…

Razer’s new budget Essential series are all still kinda expensive

Razer have announced a new budget-conscious series of 'Essential' peripherals today in the hope of bringing their popular Basilisk, Kraken and Blackwidow ranges of gaming mice, keyboards and headsets to even more people enamoured with mythological creature names than ever before - although judging by their actual prices, you'd be forgiven for thinking they're just as expensive as everything else.

Logitech’s wireless G935 headlines new series of gaming headsets

Logitech have announced four new gaming headsets this morning, starting with their latest flagship headset, the wireless G935. An updated version of their outgoing top-end headset, the G933, the G935 is the first Logitech headset to come with their proprietary Pro-G 50mm audio drivers, which Logitech hope will deliver rich bass and 'highly cinematic audio'. It will also be available as a wired version in…

LucidSound LS25 review: Great peripheral sound that falls flat up close

Say what you will about red and black being a PC gaming cliche. I kind of love it. From gaming headsets like the HyperX Cloud Alpha to laptops like the Alienware m15, I'm of the firm opinion that more bits of gaming hardware should be swaddled in the best colour known to man (red, not black, you understand). LucidSound's LS25 headset is another such headset…

HyperX Cloud Mix review: An all-in-one Bluetooth and wired headset

If you've ever wished you could wear your gaming headset out and about without looking like a walking, talking RGB Christmas tree, then you might want to turn your attention to the HyperX Cloud Mix. Indoors, it connects to your PC via its two-pronged 3.5mm adapter; outdoors, its Bluetooth 4.2 support means you can also listen to stuff and take calls on your phone or…

CES 2019: Corsair are bringing their new Slipstream tech to the masses with the $50 Harpoon RGB Wireless mouse

Not content with rewriteing the rulebook on RGB lighting with their new Capellix tech at this year's CES, rainbow gaming specialists Corsair also announced a new wireless technology today that will form the foundation of all of their wireless gaming peripherals going forward. Dubbed Slipstream, it's twice as fast as their previous generation of wireless tech, has a massive range of up to 65ft, supports…
