Prime Day 2019 officially started yesterday, and will run for the rest of today, July 16, which is the prime time to take a gander at what you’re missing in your different game collections, be it titles, accessories, and other peripherals.

For this edition, we’ll be taking a look at some of the best deals for this Prime Day for gaming headsets specifically made for playing on the PC. It’s been quite the event so far for PC gaming in general, as there have been a ton of amazing sales across different components and peripherals. – it only makes sense to see some price drops on a couple of fan favorites, especially those on the higher end of the pricing spectrum.

With all of that said, let’s now take a look at some of the best deals available for various PC gaming headsets for this year’s iteration of Prime Day.

Turtle Beach Elite Pro Tournament Gaming Headset

You know a headset means business when it has both ‘elite’ and ‘pro’ in its name. Turtle Beach is better known for their console offerings, and they have a lot of good deals for their lower-priced stuff, but there are also a couple of reasons why you should look to their higher end selection as well – case in point, the Elite Pro Tournament, which boasts quite the plethora of features compared to others at its significantly lower price point. The Elite Pro Tournament is also a headset aimed at burgeoning esports players, thanks to its lineup of innovations aimed squarely at the market.

Comfort is a firm priority for the Elite Pro Tournament, as the headset comes with a ComforTec Fit System that allows for revolutionary levels of adjustment and truly personalized comfort for each and every player. These are padded with Aerofit ear cushions that deliver a trifecta of cooling comfort, better sound, and built-in passive noise isolation. The sound is amazing as well, boasting 50mm Nanoclear Speakers that deliver Turtle Beach’s signature audio tuning for immersive game sound and crystal-clear team chat. It’s also a headset that kept in mind that there are gamers who wear glasses; the ProSpecs Glasses Relief System Patented technology alleviates ear cushion pressure for gamers who wear them.

SteelSeries Arctis 7 (2019 Edition) Lossless Wireless Gaming Headset

You can’t make a list for PC gaming headsets without including an entry from SteelSeries, a thought made all the better by the fact that one of their best offerings is having an amazing discount thanks to Amazon’s Prime Day. The SteelSeries Arctis 7 is considered by many pundits to be the wireless headset to have for PC gaming, and if you didn’t own one before, now is a great time to do so for two great reasons: it’s a lot cheaper thanks to the sale, and this one is a refresh of last year’s model which received a lot of critical acclaim, bringing with it some amazing improvements over the original.

The Arctis 7, feature-wise, boasts what is widely considered to be the best mic in gaming, utilizing the Discord-certified ClearCast microphone that delivers studio-quality voice clarity and background noise cancellation. The 2.4G connection ensures rock-solid, lossless wireless audio with ultra-low latency and zero interference, while the S1 speaker drivers are engineered to produce ultra-low distortion audio so you hear every detail. The Arctis 7 also has built-in support for DTS Headphone: X v2.0 7.1 surround sound, which takes advantage of its PC potential to bring immersive sound like no other.

CORSAIR Void PRO RGB Wireless Gaming Headset

Corsair has recently put out some amazing challengers to the headset game recently, especially in the value offered by their lower-end entry, the HS60. While there are still some discrepancies between the company, and something like, say, SteelSeries, it has gained a lot of ground and traction in the market thanks to its aggressive pricing and feature-rich headsets. Unbelievably enough, you can get 7.1 Surround Sound audio for lower than a retail pricing of a hundred bucks with the Void Pro RGB – sweetening the deal further is that amazing discount thanks to Amazon’s Prime Day.

The Void Pro RGB features 50mm neodymium speaker drivers that bring the action to life with wide range and accuracy, supplemented by Dolby’s 7.1 Surround Sound audio technology. Up until a range of 40ft, you can enjoy crystal clear, low latency and fully wireless audio, while the battery itself will power your gaming sessions for up to 16 hours on a single full charge. The optimized unidirectional microphone with LED mute indicator reduces ambient noise for enhanced voice quality, while built-in connectivity with Corsair’s CUE software means that you can easily set the headset’s RGB modes.

HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset

In terms of value, few can compete on a level the same as HyperX does with its lineup of headsets. There are several of them now for this year’s Prime Day, and two for this specific list, but first let’s take a look at the more popular one, the Cloud II. When I say more popular, though, I mean really popular, as the Cloud II has become synonymous with the best value PC gaming headset on the market today. This is due to the Cloud II’s very competitive price and its plethora of features, all the while maintaining that premium look and feel that’s more often than not a deciding factor for people who are looking to buy PC gaming headsets.

The HyperX Cloud II boasts a USB audio sound card which makes it perfect for any PC; by utilizing several drivers, you can pair this thing with a PC to achieve 7.1 Surround Sound, making it one of the few headsets to feature 7.1 support at this price point. It also has a larger than usual set of 53mm Drivers Neodymium Magnets, which really drives home the sound quality and breathes life into any game you play. The Inline sound card also doubles as dedicated hardware for the noise cancelling feature for the microphone, which also extends to echo cancellation for proper ambient noise attenuation. The microphone itself is fully detachable, which makes the Cloud II great for listening to music on mobile devices as well.

HyperX Cloud Stinger

The second of the HyperX offerings for this year’s Prime Day is on the cheaper side, but it’s also a good entry level option compared to the Cloud II, which is for a mid-ranged value experience. You can think of the Cloud Stinger as a more lightweight and stripped-down version of the Cloud II, with a huge tweak in appearance to boot. However, it’s not to say that it’s not a good purchase, especially when you consider that it’s less than the original price of the Cloud II.

At this price point, you get quite a decent feature set for the Cloud Stinger, featuring a Lightweight frame with 90-degree rotating ear cups, 50mm directional drivers for audio precision and HyperX’s signature memory foam with adjustable steel slider. It’s also quite intuitive, featuring a volume rocker on the headset ear cup itself for easier adjustments, while you can swivel the microphone upwards to mute it completely and discreetly store it out of sight.

So, what do you think? Which of these PC gaming headsets will you be getting? Let us know and stay tuned for more recommendations from us on the best deals on peripherals, accessories, and other hardware for the whole duration of Amazon's Prime Day sales event.
