Amazon offers the Turtle Beach Ear Force Elite 800X 7.1-Ch. Wireless Xbox One Gaming Headset for $179.95 shipped. This model originally sold for $300 but has been listed closer to $250 in recent months. Today’s deal is $15 less than our previous mention. I reviewed this gaming headset a few years back and still use it regularly. Although it is rather pricey, it delivers a wide-range of features that take your gaming setup to the next level. This includes custom EQ settings, active noise-cancellation, and mic monitoring. Over 50% of Amazon reviewers have left a 4+ star rating. More below.

Update 1/10 @ 11:50 AM: We also spotted the HyperX Cloud Flight Wireless Gaming Headset for $99.99 shipped at Amazon. Also at Best Buy. That’s good for a $50 discount from the going rate, is only the second price drop we’ve seen and matches the all-time low. Nearly 300 customers have left a 4.2/5 star rating.

Admittedly, today’s featured deal is a high-end option. Turtle Beach however offers a number of more affordable models. Check out the Stealth 600 Wireless Headset at under $100 if you’re looking for a wire-free setup and surround sound.

Turtle Beach Ear Force Elite 800x features:

  • Enhanced DTS Surround Sound Modes & Presets – Custom DTS HeadphoneX 7.1 Surround Sound modes combine with enhanced Turtle Beach genre-specific presets to further immerse you in your favorite games, movies and music
  • Active Noise-Cancellation – Completely immerse yourself in your gaming experience and eliminate unwanted distractions with active noise-cancellation
  • Mic Monitoring – Say it…don’t shout it, thanks to the ability to hear the volume of your own voice inside the headset
