SteelSeries is offering up to 40 percent off gaming headsets and mice – The Verge
SteelSeries is running a spring sale promotion that takes up to 40 percent off some of its gaming headsets, mice, and mousepads through Monday, May 23rd. While the discounts on individual items may range, there are some great deals to be had — including some that are available at new all-time lows.
The Arctis 7P Plus, for instance, is our pick for the best wireless gaming headset for PlayStation consoles, but it also works with Windows PCs, the Nintendo Switch, smartphones, and the Oculus / Meta Quest 2. While it’s on the premium side and usually retails for about $70 more than Sony’s own Pulse 3D headset, it offers great battery life, USB-C charging, an easy-to-use audio dial, rotatable ear cups that allow for easier storage, and adequate comfort for use during long gaming sessions. It’s even compatible with the PlayStation 5’s 3D audio.
With SteelSeries’ discount of 20 percent on the Arctis 7P Plus, the black model drops to a new low price of $135.99 — a savings of $34. You also get free shipping and a carrying bag when you add the headset to your cart. Read our gaming headset buying guide.

The new Arctis 7P Plus has the same design and comfort of previous SteelSeries headsets, but this newer model boasts improved battery life and USB-C charging, making it easy to use the same charging cable that your DualSense uses.
SteelSeries’ Aerox 3 Wireless packs more than just a few incremental upgrades.
Another notable deal from the SteelSeries spring sale is the discounted Aerox 3 Wireless. This lightweight gaming mouse weighs just 68 grams, and its honeycomb design is filled with colorful RGB lighting. The 2022 model normally runs $99.99 but you can get it for just $64.99 in black or white along with a free mousepad when you add it to your cart.
A further strength of this mouse is that it can be used either via Bluetooth or with its included 2.4GHz wireless USB dongle, which you can use to switch between two machines on the fly. It’s advertised to have up to 200 hours of battery life, but in actual use, it lasts a couple of days at most with the lighting on. Though, thankfully, it charges via USB-C.
