If you've waited until this winter time and the annual sales period to try and bag a top premium headset with a chunky discount then this Black Friday PS5 deal is for you.

The Astro A50, one of our absolute favorites, and probably one of the very best wireless gaming headset money can buy, is down to $249.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab) (was $299.99) - its lowest price for a full two years!

Honestly, among a strong field so far, this is the Black Friday PS5 headset you've been looking for. Given the fact that this headset regularly sits above the $275 mark (comfortably), and often sells for its full MSRP - it was selling for that as recently as a couple of days ago - the value here is excellent, and it represents a chance that's worth jumping on right now.

For a PSA, to make this Black Friday PS5 headset deal a true success you will have to incorporate an adapter - like Astro's official HDMI adapter (opens in new tab) - so as to compensate for the PS5's lack of optical port.

And also, to make this Black Friday PS5 headset deal even sweeter, you have a second option at play: the A50's small brother, the A40 is also at a lowest price (well, it misses it by two whole cents, so we're counting that). It can be yours - complete with the MiXAmp Pro TR - for just $179.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab) (was $249.99). If you can stretch the budget to beyond the $200 mark then this is a fine alternative, though wired, to the Astro A50.

You'll find more information on these deals below, and some more prices on our favorite PS5 headset below that.
