The best value in today's sale is the Soundcore Strike 3 Gaming Headset which is now down to just $33.99. That saves you $16 off its full cost and marks the best price yet on this versatile headset. It features virtual 7.1 surround sound to put you in the middle of the action, as well as a specially designed driver enclosure that's been designed to emphasize the sound of gunfire and footsteps. That means you'll be able to hear which direction shots are fired from or even where your enemies are in a more precise way.

This headset also features oversized 52mm drivers, along with a fully-detachable noise-cancelling microphone with IPX5 waterproofing. There's even an app called Soundcore Gaming which you can use to customize its sound.

Meanwhile, the Soundcore Strike 1 on sale for $28.99 includes a lot of the same features, such as 52mm dynamic drivers, soft memory foam ear cushions, and a noise-cancelling microphone, though it doesn't include the virtual 7.1 surround sound technology. That's worth the $5 upcharge if you ask us, but for those looking for an option under $30, the Strike 1 is a great option too.
