    Iconic by design

    Customize your lighting: 16.8M RGB lighting with two zones and AlienFX allow personalized in-game lighting and looks, so your games and accessories reflect your style. Program effects, colors, brightness, tempo and custom animations on over 150 supported games. You also have the ability to create and download unique themes.

    Unlock the full features of your headset, download the Alienware Command Center. Compatible with Windows 10 R3 or later.

    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.

    Take sound seriously

    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.

    Made for your marathon sessions

    Game all day (or night)
    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.
    Ditch the cables. Get into the game.
    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.
    Long live your battery
    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.
