Grab the HyperX Cloud gaming on sale headset this Prime Day

Prime Day already has deals on some of the best wireless earbuds out there, but earbuds aren't always the best for longer gaming sessions. That's when a nice headset comes into play. Unless you have a ridiculous setup, your television speakers are likely no match for a dedicated headset that can deliver immersive directional audio. Speaking from experience, there are some noises that I can't hear with my television speakers, but I can with a headset. HyperX offers discounts on several headset models today, including the HyperX Cloud, officially licensed for PlayStation. If the fact that it's a wired connection isn't a deal-breaker, you should absolutely consider picking it up. The HyperX Cloud features 53-millimeter drivers, a detachable microphone, memory foam earcups, in-line audio controls, and an aluminum frame to keep it all together.

Get the best out of your Oculus Quest 2 with these great headsets

While the Oculus Quest 2 has speakers built into its straps, you'll need some of the best Oculus Quest 2 headphones to make the audio as expansive and enveloping as the VR visuals. Even with some of the best Oculus accessories, you can't just use any old headphones you bought for the original Oculus Quest: the Quest 2 has just a single audio jack on its left side, compared to the two jacks of its predecessor. Technically, any headphones with a 3.5mm jack will suffice, but for the best fit, you'll need some that are specifically designed for the Quest 2.

Review: The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is an excellent headset for PS5

I think this will be my new main headset going forward on PS5 and PC. Razer is well accustomed to making headsets at this point. The company develops a slew of gaming peripherals for console and PC, with its audio devices being standout accessories. I've had a few different variations of the Razer Kraken over the years, and even wrote our Razer Kraken X review (spoiler, it's a fantastic budget headset), but I haven't been able to try any of Razer's wireless options until today. The BlackShark V2 Pro definitely lives up to its $180 price tag. Because the PS5 just launched, I decided to primarily test these out on that console. Though it's clearly more geared towards PC users, the BlackShark V2 Pro handles PS5 audio just fine, and I'd even say probably as good as Sony's own Pulse 3D wireless headset . At a glance Razer BlackShark V2 Pro Bottom line: The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is one of the best headsets I've ever had the pleasure to review. Its
