Amazon’s calendar of sales events keeps getting busier, and the latest version of Prime Day is almost here – Amazon’s Prime Big Deal Days, which runs from 10-11 October. The big sale event is right around the corner, but there are already a few deals live.
One of the areas that always sees impressive reductions during Prime deal events is gaming, and there’s nothing quite like a great headset to amp things up for you, in our experience. We’ve reviewed countless headsets in recent years, so have been able to be really discerning to only bring you the very best gaming headset deals, right here.

What to consider when buying a headset
Gaming headsets come in many shapes and sizes, but they all have the same aim – to make your games sound better, and to give you a microphone with which to take part in party chats.
There are plenty of variables that we think you should be thinking about while you shop for a headset. For one, we think that wireless play is a massive advantage in the modern era, and you should aim for a wireless headset if you can.
Another question comes in compatibility – should your headset just work with one console, or would you rather pick up one that can connect to multiple? It’s worth checking before you commit.
Sound quality and comfort are also key variables, of course, but we won’t be including any headset that doesn’t meet our expectations on both counts.

When is fall Prime Day 2023?
This fall’s version of Prime Day is happening on 10-11 October this year, so we’re now a matter of days away from being able to sink our teeth into a whole bunch more deals.
Do I need to be a Prime member to save on Big Deal Days?
Sadly Prime Day and Prime Big Deal Day are both very much entirely geared around showing off the savings you get as a Prime member, so you do indeed need an active membership or trial to get access to the best deals. However, there will be some price-matching and parity on other sites, so you could well snag a bargain without a Prime membership if you act quickly.
