If you're still searching for a gift for a gamer that'll make the perfect Christmas present - or are after a new bit of kit yourself this winter - then these cheap headsets offer the perfect opportunity.

Whatever you need one for, these five gaming headsets are all under the $50 mark and prove that there's substantial value to be had in the days before Christmas.

From slightly older but still excellent wired options like the EPOS | Sennheiser GSP 300 (one of the very best wired gaming headsets I've ever tested, I might add) that's down to just $32.48 at Amazon (from $79), or the SteelSeries Arctis 1 headset that's $44 at Amazon at Amazon (was $49.99), to more premium or recent options, there's a bunch of cheap options right now.

My pick of the latter group is the SteelSeries Arctis Nova 1 from the brand's latest line that's down to just $39.99 at Amazon right now (was $59.99) and - proving that you can cut the cord for less than $50 this winter - the wireless Logitech G435 Lightspeed that's down to just $49.88 right now, also at Amazon (was $79.99).

What's more, almost all of them will arrive before Christmas, so the timing is exquisite (the Logitech one unfortunately has a longer shopping time). Check out more details on the deals and prices below.
