    I need a new gaming headset.

    My last Headset was a "Wired" Turtle Beach X12 for Xbox 360 but it's finally broken. What I want from my next gaming headset:

    * Wireless

    * Support for Chatting to friends and Hearing Game audio on Xbox 360, Xbox One & PS4

    * Comfortable

    * 7.1 Surround Sound

    * Good Battery Life

    * New Condition

    * £150 Max

    A few headsets that I am interested in are:

    Astro A40, Astro A50, SteelSeries Siberia 800, SteelSeries Siberia 840, Turtle Beach Elite 800, Logitech G933.

    If I wait for sales e.g Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas that are all coming around soon, do you think I will be able to pick up any of the more expensive Headsets in new condition for under £150?

    ​Thanks for the input, my brother had them a while back but he ended up swapping them for the A50's because they were on offer in Argos and he was replacing the A40's anyway because they had a fault, why does your partner think they are the best?

    are you, or do you know anyone who has a Amazon student account? Most of what you've listed are available today with maybe just a damaged box for 150 or less (there's 20% off for Amazon students)

    no i dont know anybody with a student account but do you think that the price will go to below 150 for the likes of the a50's over the sales period?

    I'm pretty sure that around black Friday time there'll be a discount for all not just students...I'd hang fire for now.

    I do like the look of the Sony platinums out in December

    It's crazy how hard it is to find a wireless headset that works for both xbox one and ps4, so annoying, they expect us to buy 1 headset per console, so greedy :')

    I don't have it but I'm about to buy it, but it's wired.

    The HyperX Cloud II gets awesome reviews, and it's only £75 at full price.
