Did you unwrap a shiny new Xbox Series X this Christmas morning? Considering how hard it’s been to get a hold of one of the newest generation consoles, you should count yourself as one of the lucky few. Now it’s time to get all the bells and whistles to complete the perfect gaming setup. If you frequently play with friends (or want to trash talk your enemies), you’ll need a nice gaming headset deal. You’re in luck again – Best Buy has knocked $50 off the Astro Gaming A40 TR Wired gaming headset. You can get this Xbox Series X compatible headset for only $200. Check it out below.
This wired headset works perfectly with both the Xbox Series X and Series S. It even works with the Xbox One, so you can use it on your old console while you wait for your new one. It also works on PC and Mac. This Astro A40 TR deal’s most unique feature is the accompanying mixer. Plug your headset into this mixer lets you adjust your master volume and how loud your voice is compared to the in-game sound. If you’re a streamer, this is essential. You don’t want your voice to get covered up by every gun fired in Call of Duty. You can use the accompanying software for even more sound customization options.
This is a comfy headset, perfect for marathoning games or hosting long streaming sessions. The ear cups are well-padded and adjustable, moving up and down and also pivoting. They’re fully ready for tournament play. Optional speaker tags will dampen noise bleed, so the player next to you can’t hear your team’s callouts. You can even swap the microphone to either side. The high-quality sound will give you an edge over players using cheap gaming headsets. Astro Gaming has previously made our list of best gaming headsets of 2020.
