JBL’s non-wireless version of this headset, the Quantum One, made it onto our Best Gaming Headset list after it impressed with its killer spatial surround sound system. This version cuts the wires and adds active noise-canceling technology to block out your surroundings. The headset itself is bright and colorful, with pulsing lights beneath frosted plastic. It’s a bit bulky, but it’s so immersive you won’t even notice. If you want to spend even less, the Quantum 600 doesn’t have ANC and isn’t as robust, but it’s on sale for $100 ($50 off). And if you don’t care for wireless, the Quantum 300 is a solid wired alternative for $40 ($40 off).
This is the best gaming headset under $50, and the Prime Day price is a match of the best we’ve seen. It’s comfortable, with good sound quality and a removable mic, and overall it feels like it should cost much more than it does. (Especially today.)
Logitech’s G935 wireless gaming headset is as soft and cushiony as it is big and blue. It’s comfy enough to wear all day, and thanks to its internal surround system, it does a great job of bringing in-game environments to life.
Simple, straightforward, Razer’s Kraken headsets are a tried and true choice if you’re looking for a lightweight gaming headset with big comfy earcups for those long gaming sessions.
The Cloud Alpha S is a solid all-around gaming headset. It has comfortable ear cups, a mic that picks up your voice without any annoying background noise, and it includes 7.1 surround sound.
The Cloud Flight S is the gaming headset for anyone who wants all-day comfort, rich sound, a detachable microphone, and wireless capability. The cans are one of our favorites and for good reason. If there were a platonic ideal gaming headset, it’d be the Cloud Flight S.
Rectangular ear cups and Logitech blue vibes make the G432 stand out from any crowd. The microphone is the real star here, producing super clear sound without picking up too much background noise. Great for anyone with roommates.
Nothing can make or break a desktop PC setup like the wrong keyboard. A few of these picks are in our Best Gaming Keyboards guide.
This is one of our favorite gaming keyboards, partially because it has so many baked-in bells and whistles. RGB lighting? Customizable switches down to the individual key level? Clicky, tactile mechanics? Check, check, and check. It doesn’t hurt that this is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen for it.
Black Widow keyboards are all about that straightforward, elegant style. It has squared-off edges, solid footing, a braided cable, and bright but never muddy RGB lighting.
Another personal favorite, this tiny little keyboard will fit on a desk of any size and look cute doing it. With backlit keys and a durable braided cable, it’s a great choice for a battle station or a family computer. Because of its small size, you’ll have extra room for your big mousepad.
The G513 Carbon has clicky GX Blue switches for those snappy but not clacky vibes. It feels great to type on whether you’re playing a PC game or slaying spreadsheets.
You’re spoiled for choice when it comes to Prime Day deals on a gaming mouse. Tons of our favorites are on sale right now, and we’ve highlighted a few here. Read our Best Gaming Mouse guide to see more of our top picks.
We’ve been impressed with Razer’s Viper lineup, and the Ultimate Wireless version most of all. It has the narrow-body form factor we love, the super-sensitive optical sensor, and it’s wireless. The dongle is super tiny and won’t take up a port-and-a-half like others. In fact, it has a compartment in the belly of the mouse to stow the dongle, making it a great pick for laptop gamers.
The 650 Quantum has all the charm of a robotic mech suit. It looks like it’s from the future. Two seams of LED lighting flow up the narrow body of the mouse up to the super-clicky buttons. It’s all covered in a soft-touch coating too, so it feels ultra-comfy on your palm.

OK, a light-up mousepad isn’t something anyone’s gaming setup really needs, but it is super cool. The surface is nice and slick and just about any mouse we tried glided effortlessly across it. Not to mention those RGB lights.
The Viper Mini is an adorable little thing and it’s a perfect pick if you have smaller hands or find most gaming mice too long for your fingers. It’s also a great pick for laptop and mobile gaming because it fits into a bag so easily. It’s also dirt cheap.
Another budget-friendly option, this is the best cheap gaming mouse. It’s only $20, but it packs premium features like customizable RGB and extra thumb buttons, and the sensitivity should be fine for most people. This is the best price we’ve tracked all year.
The Pulsefire Surge is easily one of our favorite mice. It’s understated, super comfortable to use, and has a single seam of RGB lighting around the body of the mouse. If you’re looking for a gaming workhorse but don’t want to spend too much, this is a great pick.
