A detachable mic and long battery life makes it an ideal portable gaming headset.
Cyber Monday is here and there are some excellent bargains on tech available, such as this 44 per cent drop on the Razer Barracuda X wireless multi-platform gaming and mobile headset. That’s a saving of £44, down from £99.99 to just £55.99. This is already a really decent budget gaming headset, at an affordable price. So getting an even bigger sale deal makes the features-to-price value even more irresistible. It’s also on offer in the US for $69.99 at Target.
You can use this headset wirelessly or wired with low-latency on a PC, laptop, smartphone or PS4 and PS5 console and wired with an Xbox thanks to the included USB-C dongle with USB-A extender and 1/8in TRRS cable. Sound quality is good, although there aren’t any customisable features. It has a detachable Razer HyperClear Cardioid microphone that aims to suppress background noise for enhanced voice capture during gaming – and it actually does do that.
If you like to gaming on the go on your smartphone, or take a headset with you to the office, you’ll like the set’s portable design and light weight of just 250g. Plus you get 24-hours of continuous use from the battery. Noise suppression features should help to keep the background noise to a minimum as well. A good fit is promised by the breathable memory-foam ear cushions and earcups that swivel.
On a tight budget? The wired Razer Kraken X is also reduced by 47%. Razer also has a large number of products in the Cyber Monday sale and you can pick up a keyboard or mouse to go with your new headset for less with deals guide.
