If you’re after a gaming headset to pair with your shiny new Xbox Series X console, then we have you covered. We’ve found a number of highly tempting Black Friday Xbox Series X discounts running on these audio accessories for the next-gen console, regardless of whether you’re gaming in the US or UK.
Gaming headsets come in all shapes and prices, of course. In the UK, there’s everything from budget models like the Gioteck TX-40 – now just £14.99 at Argos after a £10 discount – to the premium JBL Quantum One, which is retailing for £164.99 after a £65 price cut.
In the US, Best Buy has a Turtle Beach Recon 200 headset that’s now half-price, down to just $29.99 – while the noise-cancelling Bose QuietComfort 35 II have got a similar $30 discount to bring its high price tag down to $296.99.
Paying more likely means higher specs, as ever, but for budget shoppers out there there are basic models for basic plug-in functionality, meaning you can get gaming audio in your ears and a microphone by your mouth for a surprisingly small amount.
The Xbox Series X is hard to get hold of these days, with low supply meaning those who didn’t preorder are scrabbling to get one for their home. However, if you are hoping to get one at any point in the coming months, Black Friday is still a smart time to buy some discounted accessories, rather than paying full-price for a headset as and when you manage to get your hands on a console.
