If you're looking for a good deal on a new gaming headset this Cyber Monday, you could do much worse than this Razer BlackShark V2 X. It's currently on sale at Amazon for the low price of £35.99—that's the lowest price we've seen it. It hovers around the £55 mark historically, so you're netting a saving of around £20 for what is essentially our favourite wired gaming headset.

I say 'essentially' because the BlackShark V2 X is actually slightly different. It still boasts Razer's TriForce 50mm Drivers for high-end audio performance with 7.1 Surround Sound and a HyperClear Cardioid mic for enhanced voice capture, though the mic itself isn't detachable on this model. It's also missing a USB soundcard, so relies on a 3.5mm jack to plug into whichever system you want to connect it to, whether that's your PC or console.

The headset itself is lightweight—I use the straight V2 version—and the foam ear cushions and padded headband make for a very comfortable fit. There's a volume control on the left earphone, along with an easily accessible mute button. Don't be like me though, and forget you've muted yourself as you proceed to curse your system's sound setting for not working properly. Ahem.

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
