In our round-up of the best gaming headsets we name the HyperX Cloud II Wireless as the best wireless set of cans, noting its "powerful but clear sound" and "exceptional build quality," among other things. If you've had your eye on a pair but been unwilling to fork out a whole AU$300, Amazon's current HyperX sale may appeal: the HyperX Cloud II Wireless is down to AU$179—a AU$120 discount.

The closed-back affair boasts virtual 7.1 surround sound, and 53mm drivers that lend clarity to all frequencies. Its wireless functionality is 2.4GHz wireless, and the headset itself is paired to your PC via an included dongle. 

If wireless isn't for you, the HyperX Cloud Alpha is down from AU$159 to AU$119, a decent albeit not unprecedented discount. We rated it a respectable 90  back in 2018, noting that the sound is "punchy enough that throwing a grenade in your game results in a genuinely traumatic audio response, but well-balanced enough that you can hear the glass fragments falling to the floor after it goes off."
