Get $30 off one of our favourite headsets, the HyperX Cloud II

I'm posting this partly because it's a good discount (almost the best it's ever been on Amazon), but mainly because I love these darn headphones. When my old pair eventually gave out I just bought some new ones, which is always a sign you've found the right hardware.

If you want true 7.1 surround or extremely precise audio then you might want to check out premium models in our Black Friday headsets roundup, but if you want a great all-rounder that's light and comfortable, with a clear mic, then this is a great box. It comes with a USB audio soundcard attachment where you can change volume and toggle the virtual surround sound on or off. The set comes with both memory foam pads and velour ear pads. If you're switching over to a console, it plugs into a PS4 pad without complaint, and the mic is compatible. It just works.
