The SteelSeries Arctis 1 USB-C wireless gaming headset (opens in new tab) is down to $79.99 at Amazon. This is the same price over at Best Buy where the headset is a featured Deal of the Day, which means this price won't be here tomorrow. The headset normally sells for around $100 or more. The PlayStation 4 version (opens in new tab) is still going for that enhanced price. (All of these headsets are basically the same excep the PS4 version has a different color scheme.)

The Arctis 1 has high-performance speaker drivers powered by DTS Headphone:X surround sound for crisp, detailed sound and positional audio that is super helpful when playing video games. It can also deliver clear communication from your teammates. With the ClearCast detachable microphone, you'll also be able to communicate to your team. There will be no interference from the game you're playing thanks to the bi-directional design that cancels out background noise.

As a wireless headset, you need something that can last for more than a little while when playing games. The Arctis 1 battery can go for up to 20 hours on a single charge.

Since the headset connects via 2.4GHz wireless, you will get lossless audio and a low-latency connection. Unfortunately, that means it won't work wirelessly with the Xbox. However, it will work with the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and even Android thanks to the USB-C dongle it comes with. You'll also get a USB-A adapter and a charging cable that lets you go wired if you want.
