We love the Arctis 3 Bluetooth as a wireless headset, especially when paired with the Nintendo Switch. However, if it is more important for you to have a headset for all of your consoles rather than going wireless, this wired version is an inexpensive option with excellent audio quality that you can use on just about anything. any console with the 3.5mm headphone cable. Since this is a wired headset, it also works great with PlayStation or Xbox consoles!

Plus, it’s considerably cheaper than its wireless cousin, which is one of our favorite gaming mice.


When you think of “gaming hardware,” your mind might not immediately turn to routers, but if you’re gaming online, maybe you should. This router from Netgear supports Wi-Fi 6 and comes with an impressive array of advanced tools that can help gamers reduce their ping and allocate bandwidth not only to the device they are playing on, but even to the specific game they are playing.


There’s a good chance you’ve seen this microphone before if you hang out watching streamers on Twitch. It’s one of the most popular USB condenser microphones, and for good reason. Not only does it pick up stellar vocal sound like other condenser mics, but it has built-in LEDs to light up that striking red column, which might explain why so many streamers flock to it.

It’s about as straightforward as a deal can get. That $ 50 eShop credit gift card drops to $ 45, so that’s basically an extra $ 5 on any games you plan to buy. The card balance doesn’t expire either, so if you ever plan to spend at least $ 50 on games, this offer is a no-brainer.

The Nintendo Switch handles multiplayer audio in a weird way, performing team chat through an app on your phone. Fortunately, this headset can handle both. It can be paired with your phone for team chatting, while connecting to the Switch with a 3.5mm cord for in-game audio. It’s the best of both worlds.

The Oculus Quest 2 (9/10, WIRED recommends) is a contender for the best-selling VR headset, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s a standalone headset that doesn’t require all of the trackers or external cables that most high-end headsets use. Still, it’s powerful enough to play most games. Best of all, it can still connect to a PC to play the high-end games that it can’t run on its own. Technically, this deal doesn’t come with a discount, but it’s been hard material to get during the pandemic, and you can grab a free $ 50 Target gift card when you buy it here.
