If you're looking for a last-minute deal, whether for yourself or as a stocking filler for someone else, you can't go wrong with our favourite gaming headset, the HyperX Cloud Alpha (opens in new tab). It's currently on sale at Amazon (opens in new tab) for £70, and while that's not a huge saving—it's historic price points towards a £10 saving, rather than the advertised £20—it's an investment that will stand up for a few years to come.

A good headset can transform any gaming experience, whether you're looking to immerse yourself in an open-world game or pick up the easy-to-miss cues in a competitive first-person shooter. In short, investing in a decent headset is never a bad idea.

The HyperX Cloud Alpha boasts powerful yet clear audio, thanks to a pair of 50mm dual chamber drivers. It has a frequency response of 13Hz–27,000Hz and features a detachable noise-cancelling microphone as well as inline cable controls. The build quality is pretty impressive too, providing all the padding you've come to expect from HyperX headsets, ensuring high comfort over extended periods of use.

The HyperX Cloud Alpha performs well in a wide range of situations and the good news is that you don't have to fiddle around with software in order to hear its full potential—just plug it in and you're good to go.

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.
