'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
Gamers and streamers who want to become professionals and build up a community base may start with whatever headset they have lying around at home, but eventually, viewers will expect high levels of interaction and crisp, clear audio.
At this stage, gamers, streamers, and content creators --- whether on YouTube, Twitch, or another platform -- will need to invest in a professional-grade kit. However, buying these items can seriously hurt your wallet. With this in mind, we've kept an eye out for decent deals for the streaming community, and today, we have one for you.

However, if you purchase the TYGR 300R headphones and FOX studio microphone bundle -- coming in at $268 together -- beyerdynamic will give you a further discount of $39, or close to 15%. Overall, you will then pay $229 for both items.
Made in Germany, the TYGR 300R headphones are open-backed and have been designed with materials including acoustic fleece to provide professional and immersive sound for gaming. The reported frequency response is 5 - 35,000Hz with a nominal sound pressure level of 96 dB.
