SteelSeries ranks high among the best and most reliable gaming accessories out there, not to mention, some of the sleekest.

Both of these brands are offering can’t-miss deals on its headsets, keyboards, and more for Prime Day.
To take advantage of Prime Day deals, you need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber. You can sign up for a free 30-day trial if you haven’t tried the service yet. Here are a handful of those great deals.
HyperX QuadCast S RGB USB Condenser Microphone for PC, $112.99 (Originally $159.99)
For streamers and bloggers, there’s the HyperX QuadCast S and there’s everything else. Its vibration shock mount makes it ready to use right out of the box. You can record using four different polar patterns including stereo, omnidirectional, cardioid, and bidirectional, whether you’re reading voiceover for a video or recording a podcast. In case you want to go silent for a minute or two, the top of the mic has a “tap to mute” button, which will flash an LED so you won’t get caught on a hot mic on the stream or in a Zoom meeting. Speaking of LED, the lights on the Quadcast S are fully customizable, making it not only one of the most reliable microphones, but easily the most eye-catching.
