The Best PC And PlayStation Headset Is On Sale For A Great Price

The SteelSeries Arctis Nova 7 is on sale for just $136, making it a great time to upgrade your audio.


The SteelSeries Arctis Nova 7 is one of the best gaming headsets of 2023, and right now you can grab it for the lowest price we've seen. Typically listed for $180, Amazon is currently discounting the premium headset to just $136.

One of the coolest parts of the Nova 7 is its retractable microphone, which allows you to stow it away during single-player games (instead of tossing it in a drawer and losing track of it). The plush earcups are also incredibly comfortable, allowing you to enjoy prolonged gaming sessions without any fuss.

Other notable features include 360-degree Spatial Audio, pro-grade parametric EQ for crisp sounds, and multiple points of adjustment to ensure a proper fit. And to go along with the 38-hours of battery life mentioned above, you’ll be glad to hear that just 15 minutes of charging will get you six hours of playtime--which is great news if you forget to plug it in overnight.

The Arctis Nova 7P is also on sale, and it features a vibrant color scheme that complements the PS5 console. It’s a bit more expensive at $156--and since it also works on PS5 and PC, there’s not much of a reason to spend the extra cash. The only functional difference is the 7P has a sidetone adjustment dial, whereas the Nova 7 has a chatmix dial. When using the Nova 7 on PS5, the chatmix dial will be inoperable, because third-party headsets can't adjust chatmix on PS5.
