Why get an Elite Atlas?

Unlike many gaming headsets available today, the Elite Atlas manages to achieve high marks in both the durability and comfort categories. On top of this, it's designed to work on any gaming system, PC or console, making it an excellent choice if you use multiple platforms.

When it comes to sound quality, the Elite Atlas is armed with 50mm speakers that deliver an industry-leading listening experience, which my colleague Jez Corden described as "so good it feels like it's cheating". As if that wasn't fantastic enough, the headset only costs $100, which is an incredibly good deal considering how excellent the Elite Atlas is.

What makes Amazon your best option?

There's not that much that separates all the different retailers that sell the Elite Atlas. However, Amazon does have some key differences that ultimately make it your best choice. The main one is that Amazon is the best place to go if you're looking for a price reduction. Since Amazon has the Elite Atlas listed as "Amazon's Choice," it's fairly likely that it will be the subject of deals in the future that you might not find anywhere else.

Another point in Amazon's corner is that it allows people to sell used versions of items, similar to eBay. Though no used Elite Atlas' are available right now since the product is new, that'll change over time, and if you'd rather save some money and buy the headset used, Amazon will be one of the best places to do so.

Amazon Prime

In addition to the above, anyone who uses Amazon Prime will want to stick with Amazon. Prime members get excellent shipping options with every product purchase, and this is no different when it comes to the Elite Atlas headset. You'll be guaranteed delivery in 2-3 days, business or no, and if you order early enough in the day, you might even qualify for Amazon's coveted Same-Day Delivery services since the headset is well over the $35 purchase threshold for it to be available.

If you're interested in an Elite Atlas and you're a college or university student, you'll want to choose this option especially, as all students can get six free months of Amazon Prime membership, as well as a discount on membership after that.
