There’s no better gift for the console or PC gamer in your life than a nice new gaming headset, and there’s no better time to find deals on new headsets than the week of Black Friday.

This year’s headset promotions are a little slow to roll out, but so far we’ve found decent deals on headphones from Astro, Razer, SteelSeries, Sony, and more. We’ll update this page throughout the weekend as more bargains come around.

Also keep in mind that fancy headphones aren’t just good for gaming. Advances in virtual surround sound make high-quality positional audio possible at every budget. Fans of Disney Plus especially should take note, since most of the blockbusters in the Star Wars and Marvel cinematic universes are now suddenly available with full Dolby Atmos integration.

Let’s kick things off with discounts on our picks for the best headsets of 2019. Additional deals will be added and crossed off as we go along.
