Best Black Friday gaming headset deals 2022

All the best Black Friday deals to look out for on gaming headsets.

This Black Friday 2022, it's likely we're going to be seeing a fair few deals on gaming headsets. After all, grabbing one is going to be vital for getting the best aural experience in your setup and to make sure you're fully immersed in whichever game you're playing.

But, fear not, if you're unsure of what headset to go for, and more integrally, where to find the best deals, stay right here - we'll be updating this page when Black Friday offers begin to roll in.

For headsets, it arguably makes sense to do things by brand, and handily, there are a few to choose from - so take a look at the deals we've found so far!


The world of Razer has been synoymous with excellent gaming headsets for yonks, not least given the immense popularity of lines such as their Kraken series, or their Blackshark options. I'll personally testify to using a Kraken V3 Hypersense for most of my gaming, given the solid audio and comfort, as well as the added bonus of haptic feedback!

Anyway, enough of the personal testimonials - let's talk deals! Here is going to be where you'll find any deals on Razer headsets - think the Kraken, Blackshark, or Barracuda lines, and whatever else we manage to find while hunting around.

UK deals

Razer Kraken - £32.99 from Amazon (was £79.99)

While it may be a little old now, this Razer Kraken model is going to provide excellent value for money when it comes to decent and powerful audio, as well as a rather comfortable headset, too, complete with its iconic design.

Razer Barracuda X - £49.99 from Amazon (was £99.99)

The Barracuda X is one of Razer's newest additions to its range of wireless headsets, and this version from Amazon offers a fetching white colourway, as well as solid isolation and good all-round audio from its 40mm drivers.

    Logitech has also been in the headset game for ages, and some of their recent endeavours have been rather good indeed, such as the G Pro X Wireless, or G535 Lightspeed. Here's where you'll find all of the best Logitech headset deals we can find, if you want one of their solid choices.

    UK deals

    Logitech G Pro X 7.1 - £54.99 from Amazon (was £119.99)

    Logitech's G Pro X is an especially excellent gaming headset if you're wanting more of an industrial design, as well as great audio, of course.

  • Logitech G435 Lightspeed for $49.99 from Dell (was $79.99)
  • Logitech G Pro X from Best Buy for $117.99 (was $129.99)
  • SteelSeries

    SteelSeries is a brand that has garnered quite the reputation for their headsets over the years, perhaps more so than any other devices they've put out, not least the age-old Arctis line. If it's further testament to how good they, the brand new Arctis Nova Pro and Pro Wireless top the DF list of the best gaming headsets we've tested, which puts them in good stead for other headsets in the line that we might see on discount:

    UK deals

    SteelSeries Arctis 7+ Wireless - £119 from Currys (was £169)

    The Arctis 7+ Wireless is a great wireless headset from SteelSeries, and with this Currys deal, you can also grab 6 months free Apple TV+.

    See deal

    SteelSeries Arctis 1 Wireless - £79.99 from Amazon (was £99.99)

    For more of a mid-range wireless option, the Arctis 1 Wireless should certainly serve you well.

    SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless - £129.99 from Amazon (was £194.99)

    The Arctis 9 has had a third knocked off its list price at Amazon to make what is one of SteelSeries' more premium wireless choices that bit more enticing.

    See deal

    SteelSeries Arctis 7P+ Wireless - £104.99 from Amazon (was £174.99)

    The Arctis 7P+ Wireless is more of a PlayStation specific Arctis 7+, and features a colour scheme to match your PS5!

    US deals

  • SteelSeries Arctis Pro from Best Buy for $132.99 (was $179.99)
  • SteelSeries Arctis 9X from Best Buy for $159.99 (was $199.99)
  • Corsair

    It would be wrong to discount Corsair when discussing excellent gaming headsets, given the marvellous performance on offer with top of the line options like the HS80 RGB Wireless or more affordable choices like the HS55 Stereo providing a great price to performance ratio that'll be even more impressive with Black Friday discounts.

    UK deals

    Corsair HS55 Stereo Wireless - £64.99 from Amazon (was £99.99)

    Corsair's HS55 Stereo Wireless is quite a recent addition to their lineup, so it's nice to see it getting a solid discount on what is a great mid-range, and stylish, wireless headset.

    See deal

    Corsair HS70 Pro Wireless SE - £84.99 from Amazon (was £99.99)

    The HS70 Pro Wireless SE is more of a premium wireless offering from Corsair, but a reduction from Amazon makes it even more appealing!

    See deal

    Corsair HS80 RGB Wireless - £99.99 from Amazon (was £139.99)

    This HS80 RGB Wireless is a DF favourite, and this discount from Amazon knocks it down to just under 100 big ones.

    See deal

    Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless XT - £189.99 from Amazon (was £249.99)

    The Virtuoso line of headsets is perhaps the cream of the crop when it comes to Corsair headsets, and this particular model is a great premium choice that Amazon is offering a handy discount on.

    See deal

    Corsair HS55 Stereo - £49.99 from Amazon (was £69.99)

    If you want the wired HS55 Stereo, Amazon has you covered here, too!

    US deals

  • Corsair HS55 Stereo for $44.97 from Walmart (was $59)
  • Corsair Virtuoso RGB SE for $193.99 from Best Buy (was $229.99)
  • Other Manufacturers

    Under this subheading is where they'll be deals for other manufacturers than we've listed above. Think HyperX, Astro, Turtle Beach, Epos and more.

    UK deals

    Bang and Olufsen Beoplay Portal - £244.99 from Amazon (was £449)

    The Beoplay Portal is perhaps the definition of a premium gaming headset from an especially renowed audio brand - Amazon's marked it down in this Black Friday stonker if you can stump up the cash for it.

    See deal

    HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless - £109 from Amazon (was £189.99)

    The Cloud Alpha Wireless from HyperX is the headset to buy if you want the best endurance - where else will you get 300 hours of playtime out of a headset?

    Sony's Pulse 3D headset is perhaps the go-to choice to use with a PS5, and with the code FNDDGAMING at Currys, you can grab it for £65, as well as claim 6 months Apple TV+!

    See deal

    Sony Inzone H9 - £229 from Amazon (was £269)

    Keeping in with Sony headsets, their own new top of the line Inzone H9, complete with slick design, excellent audio, and ANC, has received a handy markdown at Amazon.

    So, there you have it - that's some of the current best Black Friday deals on gaming headsets we can find at the moment. When we get closer to the actual big day, expect this article to become a sea of deals - after all, that's what usually happens! They'll still be sorted by manufacturer, so finding a deal on your favourite headset should be simple.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Of course, time and time again, there are going to be important questions about gaming headsets, not least if you're deciding to grab a new one. Below, we'll take you through a handful of key Qs with our two cents added to help you make a properly informed buying decision.

    What gaming headsets does Digital Foundry recommend?

    Truth be told, we've recommended a wide range of headsets in our list of the best gaming headsets, ranging from top of the line choices from SteelSeries to more affordable ones from Astro, as well as even some more off the wall and audiophile candidates from Nuraphone and Audeze, too. If you're stuck on what to buy. that list should be a great starting point.

    What gaming headset deals do we expect to see?

    As the month of November wear on and the big Black Friday weekend draws nearer, it would make sense for us to see more dealas on gaming headsets in general. To be more specific though, there is an expectation that major retailers (e.g. Amazon, Currys, eBuyer, Scan) will offer deals on gaming chairs, as well as brands who also sell direct - e.g. Razer, Corsair, Secretlab. They may discount slightly older or popular models to draw people in, but it may also be handy to expect any surprises on discounts, too, especially on popular models and lines.
