Expecting some new video games this Christmas? Need to jump into a call to yell at and/or participate with your team? You need a good gaming headset for that! Grab the HyperX Cloud Alpha stereo gaming headset for a low price of $59.99 at Best Buy. This is a Best Buy-exclusive version of the Cloud Alpha, but this price is much better than even other versions at other retailers. It's actually one of the best prices we've seen for the headset, even though we've seen deals as low as $70 in the past.

You can still get Best Buy deals before Christmas if you order quickly. You'll need to do something like curbside pickup or same-day delivery to make it work, but then again if you're not in a hurry you can just do standard delivery.

Compatible with most platforms including PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and more. Has adjustable headband for maximum comfort. Mic is detachable and has noise cancellation so your voice doesn't get drowned out. In-line controls let you adjust volume and mic.

So the Cloud Alpha is an extremely durable headset that uses an aluminum frame and has an expanding headband that helps generate long-lasting comfort. With memory foam in the ear cups, you'll get the same feeling of comfort every time you put the set on. Plus the cable is braided to prevent tangling, and it has in-line audio controls. It's even detachable so you can store the cable easily whether you're putting it away for the night or taking it with you on a trip. Use the in-line controls to mute sound or adjust volume without having to take your eyes off the screen.

You'll also get great audio with this headset thanks to the 65 ohms impedance and dual chamber drivers that can separate the bass from the mids and highs for a smoother sound. Much like the cable, the microphone is also detachable so you can use it only when you need to. The mic has built-in noise cancellation, too, so you can talk to your teammates without the sounds of simulated explosions getting in the way.

The Cloud Alpha is compatible with a wide range of platforms. Use it on your PC, your Mac, your PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, mnobile devices, and more. HyperX backs it up with a two-year warranty.
