One of our favorite Xbox wireless gaming headsets is the lowest price it has ever been right now

During early Black Friday deals going on right now, the SteelSeries Arctis 9X wireless gaming headset is on sale dropping down to the lowest price it's ever been. It usually sells for $199.99, but right now it's $100 off, making it just $99.99. This is a really good price given that the gaming headset only dipped down to around $120 in previous sales.

As you can see from our SteelSeries Arctis 9X review, we absolutely love this gaming headset due to its amazing audio, long battery life, comfortable fit, and how well it works with Xbox consoles. It's specifically designed with Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One support so you don't have to worry about any connectivity issues when using it with your console. What's more, another version of this headset, the SteelSeries Arctis 9 meant for PC and PlayStation, is also on sale at the same price if that's more appealing to your gaming needs.

As much as we love Xbox Series X|S there's no denying that the consoles have some self-imposed accessory limitations that make it so that only certain Bluetooth devices can be connected to them. Hell, last month Xbox revealed that unofficial third-party wireless accessories will no longer be supported on Xbox starting Nov. 12, 2023. 

That's why it's important to get gaming headsets and controllers that specifically are designed with Xbox support. The SteelSeries Arctis 9X is ideal because it offers good battery life of around 20 hours on one charge. Plus, it's got a comfortable fit with soft padding and provides excellent audio to help you focus on your favorite games. It has a Bluetooth max range of around 30 feet, so you don't have to worry about it disconnecting while sitting in front of your TV or monitor. 

Of course, if you don't need the 9X Xbox version, you can go with the Arctis 9, which is also at a really great price point right now, and use it for PC, PS5, or PS4.
