HyperX PC gaming peripherals are discounted on Amazon US today

Up to 30 per cent off on gaming headsets, keyboards and more.

Amazon's deal of the day is a great one for PC gamers, with a motherlode of HyperX accessories available at deep discounts to American customers. The deals include two of our favourite budget gaming headsets, a top-notch mechanical keyboard and a highly rated mouse. It's not just peripherals either, with Kingston RAM and HyperX SSDs also included for this one-day sale. Take a look at all of the discounted HyperX gaming products here, or scroll down for our recommendations!

First up: gaming headsets. HyperX made their mark with the incredibly popular Cloud II a few years ago, and since then they've gone from strength to strength. Included in the sale are a few of these newer additions, including the HyperX Cloud Flight, the company's first wireless gaming headset (now $100, was $160) and our favourite budget gaming headset, the Cloud Stinger ($40, was $50).

The Cloud Stinger Wireless ($75) is basically a combination of the first two headsets we mentioned, and is one of the best choices for a wireless headset if you can't stretch for something like the SteelSeries Arctis 7. Two wired gaming headsets for console are also part of the deals: the Cloud Stinger Core for PS4 ($30) and Cloud Stinger Core for Xbox ($30).

Finally, there are two more PC gaming headsets worth mentioning here. The popular Cloud Revolver ($70, down from $120) and the original Cloud headset ($50, reduced from $80) also see big discounts in the day-long sale.

For other peripherals, we're a big fan of the HyperX Alloy FPS RGB ($80, was $110). After testing this keyboard over a few weeks, we found that it offered a clean design, pretty RGB lighting and extremely responsive Silver Speed switches, making it a very good shout for gaming. If you'd prefer something smaller but no less well-built, then the Alloy FPS Pro ($50, reduced from $70) might be more up your street.

If you fancy some upgraded keycaps for either of those keyboards (or any other keyboard with a standard US layout), HyperX's double shot PBT 'pudding caps' are also on sale ($18). These feel great under your fingers and also provide a very cool look when backlit, so they're worth considering.

Membrane keyboard fans are also catered for with the RGB-resplendent Alloy Core ($35, reduced from $50). HyperX also make some quite reasonable mice, with the excellent optical sensor of the Pulsefire FPS Pro ($40, was $60) making it the pick of the litter.

Let's talk components now. If you've got a laptop that takes DDR4, you can pick up 16GB on the cheap ($93, was $113) or try out a blazing-fast external SSD ($160, from $200). The HyperX Fury 240GB SSD has also been discounted ($75, down from $95).

That's just about it. Feel free to ask questions in the comments below, as we've tested most of these products and can offer some advice if you need it. Otherwise, you may want to take a look at our latest recommendations for the best gaming headsets, mechanical keyboards or gaming mice.
