Mindfully made: We designed our gaming headset both strong and lightweight with ultra-premium materials for maximum comfort and stylish wearability. With a well-made headband, comfortable ear cushions with moisture-wicking fabric and easy-access controls, you can game for hours and look good doing it.
Don’t miss a beat: Your headphones take you deep into the game with sophisticated sound technology. Expect polished, professional in-game sounds with Alienware 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound and a clear, broad acoustic signature. Hi-fidelity 40mm neodymium drivers round out the deep, rich bass and expansive soundscape for an unparalleled gaming experience.
Amplify the action: Multiplayer games demand crystal-clear communication. Make sure your entire team hears every directive and every battle cry with the enhanced, uni-directional, noise-canceling mic with natural voice communication.
Tailor your sound settings in either the Alienware Command Center or the Headset Center to enhance gaming, music and movies. Then adjust on the fly with a click of the audio preset button on the headset’s left ear cup.
Alienware Command Center: Create profiles and tweak settings within the Command Center’s Sound Center. Program specific game genres for more dynamic cues. Change focus from team chats to gameplay with the volume mixer. And count on audio prompts to deliver notifications on connections, mic status and battery levels. Available on the new Alienware 15 and 17 laptops or the new Alienware Area-51 desktop.
Headset Center: Select from preset EQ profiles or create your own. Adjust audio effects like bass boost, reverb, and volume. Customize your mic settings, including leveler, noise cancellation and voice-shaper. And enable audio recon in specific games to localize sound through a custom overlay and indicator. Available on the Alienware Aurora desktop or non-Alienware systems.
Built with a lightweight, comfortable design, the Alienware Wireless Gaming Headset is specifically crafted to let you game for hours with ease. Your breathable ear cushions rotate to fit just how you want them and the microphone has an extendable boom mic that lets you tuck it up and out of the way when you’re gaming solo.
High-performance wireless means you clear your game space of cables. Equipped with lag-free 2.4Gz wireless and a 40-foot range, your headset lets you stay connected, even during snack breaks.
Your headset has up to 15 hours of wireless gameplay per charge. And when there’s no need for wireless, just plug into the 3.5mm audio port—or pair with your mobile phone or gaming console—until your next marathon session.
