Amazon Prime Day is the perfect opportunity to grab yourself a new piece of gaming hardware. Whether it's a keyboard or a headset, there are plenty of great deals to choose from.

One (or, to be more accurate, several) of our top picks from this year's mega-sale event is the BlackShark series, which is a selection of premium gaming headsets from industry icon Razer – many of which are on sale this Prime Day.

The Razer BlackShark V2 is the current-generation standard model out of the range, and it's got everything you could want from a gaming headset: high-quality audio, THX 7.1 surround sound, and a detachable cardioid boom mic that keeps your voice comms crisp and clear.

With breathable memory foam earcups and a plush leatherette headband for maximum comfort, this is a gaming headset you can wear for hours. It's also not too heavy, so you don't have to worry about neck strain either. Oh, and fans of tactile controls will no doubt appreciate the smooth rotation of the physical volume dial.

If you're over in the UK, you can also enjoy a deal on the BlackShark V2 Pro – the big brother to the V2. This model is almost half price and offers an even more premium experience, including wireless functionality. We scored it highly when we reviewed it earlier this year.

If one of the best PC gaming headsets isn't what you're looking for, you might want to check out our Amazon Prime Day laptop deals page to snap up a whole new system – or take a look at our Prime Day Apple deals, if you're thinking of netting some new Apple hardware.
