Amazon is currently offering the 2021 Razer Barracuda X Wireless Gaming Headset in Quartz Pink for $49.99 shipped. Typically going for $80, this 38% discount marks a new second-best price we’ve tracked to date. Previously we have seen this headset drop $10 lower once before and it has not dropped this low since then. The included USB-C wireless dongle allows this headset to work with a PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, and Android devices for cross-platform gaming. The patented 3-part design of Razer’s TriForce 40mm drivers delivers ”exceptional highs, mids and lows that doesn’t muddy, providing deeper gaming immersion.” The detachable cardioid microphone will reject background noise while clearly picking you up. Check out our hands-on review to learn more.
You can save some cash by instead going with the Razer Kraken Gaming Headset for $45. Unlike the Barracuda X, this headset is wired which also increases the platforms you can use it. The microphone here isn’t detachable but it does retract back into the earcup when not in use and while traveling. Audio controls are also in-line with the audio cable for on-the-fly volume adjustment and microphone mute toggling. There is even virtual 7.1 surround sound when used with a Windows PC so you can better hear where enemies are coming from.

As you might know from our hands-on review, it delivers up to 2,000MB/s transfer rates alongside compatibility with PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and Mac for game storage as well as just about anything else you might put on a portable SSD. From there, it also illuminates any surface you rest it on with customizable RGB lighting as well as featuring a metal-plated build and a shock-resistant structure.
