HyperX Cloud Alpha S | $90 | Amazon
A good gaming headset is important. While players love to obsess over graphics, great audio can really add to an experience. Think of something like Resident Evil 2 and the sound of Mr. X’s slowly plodding in the distance, ready to absolutely wreck you. Or there’s something like Overwatch, where sound tell you exactly what abilities your opponents are using so you can turn around and run the other way. Video game sound design is an underappreciated art that we salute. If that got you in the ole’ audio spirit, Amazon currently has a sale on the HyperX’s Cloud Alpha S gaming headset. You can grab the yours for $90, which is great for hearing all those blips and, dare I say, bloops in detail.
